Alfonsvs second EP comes out on their newly formed label, called Fluxus, and brings us 3 more dance floor focused tracks. Mastered by Calyx Mastering.
"Us" was done in conjunction with the dutch singer Eline van der Does, from a very well known touring dutch band called AMF Jazzband. The collaboration started with the singer's curiosity around the world of techno and house, when one of the Alfonsvs guys opened it a bit to her, and despite her complete lack of any techno knowledge, both came to realize the possibilities they had for a collaboration. This is not the last piece of work to come out between the two artists.
"44th Romance", is the track that gives the Ep its name. It's a dark breakbeat cut, with a subtle use of the amen break sample, a strong bassline, and bass and techno music influences. The lyrics in the middle are related to the inevitability of the arrival of a new loved one.
"There Was You" was a track that since the early beginning had the support of the italian duo Hiver. This is a dub techno track that opens itself up with the use of different reverbs, spacial delays and the use of some acoustic percussion, giving the EP's overall feeling a more dance floor focus.
Supported already by:
Laurent Garnier: "I have to say that the 4 tracks are simply brilliant! (Ep + Skype Call To Chicago) What I love the most is that all your tracks have a lot of personality (it's getting rare these days). I love the depth of you mixes and the trippy deepness of your music. This is GREAT STUFF, you should be very proud of your music."
