Chris Leon, Matt Sawyer – Alis
(review by 6AM-GROUP.COM & THEWAVETRANSMITTER.COM)
Top Town Records label mates, Chris Leon and Matt Sawyer, join musical forces to create their brand new single ‘Alis’.
A seductive combination of Matt’s quirky signature melodies and Chris’ smoldering techy tones make this an intriguing creative alliance. ‘Alis’ is lead by a gritty, indie flavored bass hook that’s complimented with dramatic piano stabs and harmonious arpeggios that reticulate around the powerful groove, Matt also cranks up the melancholy with a remix drizzled with intricate beats an delicious atmospheric electronica.
Certainly, if anything, this one is perfect peak time fodder, ideal for those face-down, fists pumping moments.
We’ve come to expect great things from our friend Matt Sawyer since we first heard his Good Morning EP on Top Town Records, a few months back. Needless to say, the Italian whizzkid hasn’t disappointed (just wait until you hear his contribution to our House for the Homeless compilation) and his latest excursion on the Top Town imprint, with label mate Chris Leon, is quite the tech-house banger.
Chris arrived on Top Town in December 2016, with his Trilogy single; a tripped out techno affair which offers listeners something a little more thoughtful than straight up 4×4 beats and bass.
