alias_j makes his debut on Pig&Dan’s ELEVATE imprint with a blistering three-track flurry of Melodic House & Techno delights – Changes.

Promising a plethora of creative individuality from cover to cover, alias_j’s ‘Changes’ EP is a myriad of melodic prowess that showcases the depths of his productive capability as an artist. From sturdy 4/4 segments that are built for fired-up dancefloors to cinematic atmospherics and ethereal soundscapes, this collection of three unique tracks is an undeniable statement piece – bold, potent and fitting for an impactive debut.

Opening the release, ‘Dominion Rising’ presents in the form of an intergalactic voyage – lightly dusted with a bohemian tinge. Driving drums and shuffled percs meet a balance of subtle and boisterous melodic layers throughout. ‘Moving Again’ follows, cutting a more rigid techno blueprint. Pulsating drum work and sizzling hat grooves bounce off its percussive flair, intercepted by the perpetual ripple of more cathartic synth lines. Bringing the EP to a close, ‘Difference Of Opinion’ ignites more of your primal senses with its temporal energy and rising emotions. Hypnotic in its rhythm and tonal elements, it is a firm choice if you’re looking for a late-night head-turner that will sweep a crowd off its feet.

An artist with a cultured past venturing into new territory under a refreshing new moniker (alias_j), Jon Ojeda has existed throughout key eras of electronic music that have contributed to a newly readied artistic package. Inspired by many electronic greats, he comes to the fore with an invigorating sonic palate – spanning the realms of Melodic House & Techno and Breaks.

alias_j’s ‘Changes’ EP lands on 1st October 2021 via Pig&Dan’s ELEVATE.
