Alix Perez (Belgium/UK) and Eprom (USA) (Alix Depauw and Alexander Dennis respectively) are SHADES. Alix and Eprom are bass and dance music stalwarts, who have grown to become some of the more influential artists amongst their peers today.
Eprom and Perez have been aware of each other’s music for a a good while now. They have been playing each others’ music for some time before they met. They met in person at Northern Bass festival in New Zealand where they both played in 2013/2014 and connected properly. They got in studio the following summer in LA with Foreign Beggars to produce the modus EP and then went onto collaborate together. They wrote a few tracks which became the Alpha Pup EP, which was the birth of SHADES.
Perez and Eprom are motivated by the need for progression musically and personally. They are pioneers who are driven by change who are not falling prey to the trappings of conventional composition.
