Alexis Raphael

Into the light

Having already shown great potential with his Kitchens & Bedrooms release on Lower East last year, fledgling DJ and producer Alexis Raphael steps up with a 3 track EP on Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’ Hot Creations label. Into The Light delivers a cosmic journey into the distinguishably deep sound that is currently topping the charts. Alexis’ hypnotic groove and vocal rhythms create a three track EP that is hard to forget.

The title track, Into The Light, is available both as an original and with a Hot Natured remix, both delivering a jacking groove and wide atmosphere. While the Hot Natured mix introduces a darker sound to the EP, the original by Alexis shines through with funky disco sounds and memorable vocals.  The third original track on the EP entitled ‘I Know’ is a deeper journey into seduction and lust with a funky bass line and catchy vocals.

Having already hosted such great talent as Danny DazeLee FossDeetron, and Waif & StraysHot Creations’ release of  Into The Light is another adventure into the ever-evolving sound that distinguishes this groundbreaking label. Alexis’ release will surely be a track to listen for this summer as it makes its way into the ears of seasoned DJs and fans.
