Alec Chizhik & Markus Mehta - Harmonies


Release: 19.02.16

Brise Records welcomes the Munich based duo Alec Chizhik & Markus Mehta for their debut on the celebrated imprint. Entitled “Harmonies”, the three track release showcases this German pair’s expansive and accomplished sounds in a slightly deeper way.

Chizhik and Mehta have been working together since 2007 and in that time they have released their works on labels such as Kling Klong, Monique Spéciale, Loot and many more. As DJs they are skillful selectors, who know how to make a floor shake and they’ve put the inspiration from countless nights on the globe’s dance floors into this fine record.

Things start off with the bass heavy vibes of Dr. Carol. The hypnotic, percussive groove builds through trippy layers of arpeggiated melodic particles before it drops into a mystic break. Female vocals which are hauntingly calling the doctor’s name are providing extra energy.

The second track “Harmonics” is a string-filled, electronic soul statement. Various harmonic components such as pads and melodies are morphed together by a marching groove. Playful wooden-percussions keep things on track and moving forward in elegant style.

Finally “Frequency” features another signature thick bassline and dramatic synth pads. The cleverly structured beats provide the composition with a strong backbone, while the snappy hi-hats infuse vibrancy.
