Find My Balance is the latest offering from Alexander IV – pseudonym of the eclectic Dutch producer, multi-instrumentalist and illustrious tunesmith, Joris Feiertag, who uses the Macedonian monarch’s title to delve into the more soulful side of his sonic output – taking in hip-hop,
boogie, jazz and funk influences along the way.
Featuring powerhouse vocalist, recent collaborator with German producer Marcel Vogel and member of the LIKEMINDS ensemble LYMA, Find My Balance is a provocative and uncompromising alternative dance floor burner. Joris’ neck snapping drums and relentless percussion are the perfect match for LYMA’s determined delivery, conjuring up shades of
Prince, Plantlife and Anderson.Paak along the way.
Alexander IV’s music fuses organic and electronic elements with ease, which isn’t surprising given the artist’s experience not only as a consummate dance music maker, but also as drummer of choice for Dutch superstars Kraak & Smaak. His music delivers something brand new yet retro; uncomplicated yet masterful.
