Belgian born Alix Depauw is the face behind production moniker Alix Perez, and Shades (w/Eprom). Alix released his debut album "1984" to critical acclaim via the much revered imprint Shogun Audio in 2009. Since then he has released a 2nd studio album, multiple EP’s, launched a label and has collaborated with the foremost names in dance and electronic music including; Noisia, Foreign Beggars, dBridge, EPROM and many more. Following the release of his 2nd album Chroma Chords in 2013, Alix was asked to do a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, which was nominated for essential mix of the year. After this album Alix went onto to release EP’s on Exit Records before a collaborative EP with Ivy Lab on Critical Music.
In 2016 Alix launched his own imprint; 1985 Music. Now on the 15th record the label has gone from strength to strength releasing artists such as; Ivy Lab, Halogenix, Skeptical, Eprom, Shades, along with Monty and Submarine. 1985 Music promotes multiple club nights globally. Almost every release on the label has found its way to number 1 in the Beatport charts, and in 2017 the label won ‘Best New Label’ at the Drum and Bass Arena Awards (by public vote).
Between his solo project as Alix Perez, Shades (w/ Eprom), his record label, and playing 100 shows a year, there is much to expect from this highly prolific artist.
