As an antidote to all this heat, why not try an evocative slice of mid-tempo deep house – ‘As They Fade’ from ALEX & DREW. The  duo – Alex Over and Andrew Shobeiri  – have been working together for a number of years and for their latest tune they’ve drafted in UK singer-songwriter Riah Knight who is now actually based in Berlin where she’s known for her hip-hop and jazz collaborations.

Between them, the threesome craft an electronically generated pure and simple vibe  that rides a warm bassline underpinned with subtle percussion, though the big attraction is Riah’s cool vocal.

Alex says: “The inspiration behind As They Fade are vast, as collectively we all brought our own experiences to the table. Hopefully we’ve created something that will really resonate with people: I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”

Alex & Drew; ‘As They Fade’ is released on July 28th.
