The Idle Hands and All Caps signee to begin the year with a weighty new EP via Hypercolour branch, Hype LTD.
Alex Coulton has slowly established himself as an expert in the delivery of atmospheric techno and house flavours with records on the aforementioned labels plus Livity Sound‘s new sub-label, Dnuos Ytivil, and in collaboration with Szare on Syndrome Z.
The Mancunian’s latest effort continues to resonate with the dark-yet-melodic sound coming from so many of his Bristol peers, decidedly exploiting the possibilites of a 4×4 drum structure in the sub-driven warmth of ‘Submerged’, the euphoric synths of ‘Dance, Max’, the industrial tones ‘Function’, and the melodic final track ‘Fade Realization’.
Adding his name to the stellar list of artists associated with Hypercolour, Alex Coulton begins 2013 with a bang. Watch for his Hyponik mix next week, preview the release below, and buy now.
