|1.||"The Lands Beyond!"|
In the period since Amir Alexander last graced DJ Spider's Plan B Recordings, the producer and DJ has racked up a fair glut of releases for everyone from Secretsundaze and Hype Ltd to Machining Dreams and his own Anunnaki Cartel. It's not disrespect to call Alexander one of the most prolific producers currently operating in the US house and techno scene, but every one of these releases arrives without any sense of artistic compromise on his behalf. The Lands Beyond! EP is a perfect four track snapshot of Amir Alexander deep in his element; the way the hats snap on the title track as a deep acid bass fizzes beneath or the supple, bleep laden grooves of "Mental Floss" both demonstrate how Alexander has mastered the art of functional music filled with touches that are in no way functional.
