ALEX BANKS – “FALLING DOWN”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE
“Falling Down” is the 3rd single from Alex Banks critically acclaimed second album Beneath The Surface on Mesh. “Falling Down” perfectly showcases Alex’s ability to blend raw beats, and melodic emotion with genres like Techno, Electronica and Old Skool Rave.
Following his debut album on Modeselektor’s Monkeytown Records, Alex reflected on his experiences as a DJ and live performer to produce the Beneath The Surface album for Max Cooper’s Mesh label earlier this year which harnessed elements of live performance, at times free-flowing and unpredictable, seamlessly fused with forward-thinking technical production.
The Falling Down EP package comes with a crunching remix from Ital Tek and an additional edit of “Falling Down” itself.
“This was the last track I wrote for the album…there’s something liberating about having almost finished making a record and then crafting one more tune that encapsulates all of its aspects, and concludes the writing process. Drawing influence from dark techno club experiences, its fierce rolling beats and driving bassline contrast with melodic elements and warm nostalgic synths. Designed to move dance floors and inspire emotion with a euphoric build giving way to filth laden raw beats.”
