Alex Niggemann’s new EP ‘Hurricane’ (Balance Music) follows up the AEON label boss & producer’s recent success, the stunning ‘Balance Presents…’ compilation, which dropped in October 2016.
The upcoming EP features the exclusive track ‘Hurricane (Club Mix)’, alongside the original, a new original ‘Silhouettes & Sparks’, plus remixes from Deetron & Denis Horvat.
Niggemann is forever breaking new ground. Where the compilation allowed him to curate a story through the medium of ‘the mix’, ‘Hurricane’ showcases the beginning of a new chapter for his melancholic-pop-driven alter ego ‘The Shadow Self’. Both original tracks on the release are emotive melodies where thoughtful composition and vocals are key.
‘I have been working on music like this for a while,’ Alex says. ‘As an artist, it’s important to reinvent myself, explore uncharted territory and have a wider view of how music can sound and how differently you can do things. This EP mirrors the music that I listen to when I’m traveling or relaxing; having a break from 4×4 beats, which usually rule my world. This also inspires me when I come back to produce House/Techno.
‘It’s great that I can use this platform to introduce my new project ‘The Shadow Self’ to show a different ‘me’ on a label that transcends musical borders and supports the freedom of music as art… as art doesn’t have borders.’
‘Hurricane’ will be released on Friday 3rd February on Balance Music.
