Alixander Raczkowski is next on CUFF with ‘Watch Your Step’
CUFF‘s next release ‘Watch Your Step’ – comes courtesy of London based artist Alixander Raczkowski.
Following releases on RIM, Kaleidoscope Productions, Substrate Music and more, Alixander Raczkowski lands on CUFF with a colossal new single. The London based artist is known for his upfront groove-led tech-house style, with his latest work being some of his most potent and best to date.
If you are unfamiliar with Alixander’s work he is adept at delivering deep hypnotic tech house, tracks that have the power to hold and encapsulate listeners while walking a quasi minimal aesthetic with expertise. On the flip of though we find Alixander is no stranger to a more unstripped and pumping feel.
With tracks like ‘Fresh Hit’ being the new-age tech-house Elrow party track, there are also others such as ‘Boss’ and ‘Ova Ther’ with more of a stripped-back minimal tech feel. Throughout his foray into electronic music, it is clear that Alixander has captured a strong style and sound of his own paired with an ear for a catchy groove. This recap is the perfect introduction to an interesting artist, with much more to come real soon.
‘Watch Your Step’ features a swinging 4/4 beat structure with skipping hat grooves, a colossal bed of thumping kicks, pulsating toms and a roaring bassline to go with it. Beyond that, its injections of rhythmic sampling and glitchy synth shots make the perfect adversary for some creative vocal chops and climactic builds/drops.
We premiere ‘Watch Your Step’ on Data Transmission, check it out here and grab it here.
