With love from UKF and BBC Radio One in the build-up and Limited to just 500 copies, ‘The Rain (Alix Perez Remix)’ sees Verbz & Mr Slipz recruit drum and bass legend Alix Perez on remix duties of one of the stand-out singles from their acclaimed LP ‘Radio Waves’, released in 2020 on High Focus Records.
With a fever dream vocal hook from avant-garde / Berlin-based vocalist Riah Knight elevating the offering to even greater heights, ‘The Rain RMX’ has all the makings of an alt-anthem across genres; offering up a looking glass to the world as Verbz sees it; a deep palette of blues and greys emanating from his committed multi-syllables, punctuated by bright sparks of colour courtesy of Mr Slipz’ expertly curated sample-work and Alix Perez’s rolling rhythms and basslines.
With Summer 2022 in full swing, ‘The Rain RMX’ offers up a contrasting, reflective viewpoint to the anthems currently running riot across festival season. The track feels like a perfectly balanced short film, and cements both Alix Perez’ and Mr Slipz’ reputations as expert music makers and Verbz and Riah Knight as valuable voices in uncertain times.
The RAINDROP 7″ comes in a full colour premium sleeve on heavyweight vinyl, with the first 100 PRE-ORDERS signed by Verbz & Mr Slipz.
