Spanish artist Alex Under marks the progression of his work with the release of second album, ‘La Máquina de Bolas’, released in March 2012 through Soma Records. The acclaimed producer and CMYK label boss returns a more experienced, complex artist after a seven year album hiatus following 2005’s Trapez LP release, ‘Dispositivos De Mi Granja’.

The Alex Under singles released on Soma Records are not taken from the album, but do maintain the musical ethos found on the forthcoming long player. The title track, El Alma Del Tiempo is a dizzying foray into the deep and somewhat disturbing Alex Under Techno, where the precise sonic production that AU is known for meets a rawer and more abrasive sound.

Slam step up for the remix as they welcome Alex onto their label of 20 years. Turning in one of their classic ‘big room’ works, Stuart and Orde maintain the darkness but turn up the subs in this muscular mix.

The closing track, Addendum, brings a little light to the EP with swinging percussion and grooving bass. Fear not though, this is balanced with a slice of distortion few producers are skilful enough to use in such a manner and draws the circle on Alex’s first aural outing on Soma Records.
