Alex Dimou – Tot EP
Almost one year on from his last release on the label, Athens based Alex Dimou releases a stellar EP for Rebellion showcasing his wide musical range over three tracks.
The ultra depths of piano driven lead track Tot, the wobbly, twisted rhythms of Define and the tech-house slam poetry of Constellation all showcase the many sides of Alex Dimou. His debut release for the label, This Time, featured Namibian singer Black Soda, which inspired a new collaboration. Constellation was the outcome, which features South African slam poet Lazarusman, well known for his work with Stimming, DJ.T and Djuma Soundsystem.
“I’ve been working on this EP for the past year. ‘Tot’ is one of my favourite tracks, where I’ve tried to blend my routes with newest influences. ‘Constellation’ came together almost a year ago, it’s a collaboration with Lazarusman, an artist I’ve always admired. ‘Define’ was made in Paris. During my live performance in a club, I realised that I needed a track with a vocoder vocal so I started working on it as soon as I went back to the hotel.” – Alex Dimou
Anyone who has heard Alex Dimou’s impressive live-set will recognise these tracks that will now finally be released on on Rebellion. Other releases can be found on the likes of Get Physical, Audiomatique Recordings and Kindisch.
