Alex Ross-Iver’s unique sound has seen him compared to everyone from The Human League, Vangelis and The Avalanches to Jean Michelle Jarre and Basement Jaxx. Now with the release of ‘Best of 2001-2005’ and with plans to release a new series of albums and singles through the winter of 2011 and right into 2012, Alex is ready to set the dance floors of the UK on fire as he introduces his music to the UK. Fusing cutting-edge beats with distorted vocal samples, Alex Ross-Iver’s music paints soundscapes in the mind and takes Brian Eno’s concept of musical installations to another level for the 21st century. The sounds featured in his underground classics such as ‘Post Hysterics’, ‘Hard to Dance’, ‘Yellow One’ and stunning new track ‘Wacky Jacky’ will have listener’s ears standing on end to grasp every minute new element which together form an amazing creative cocktail of dance rhythms and Indie Electronica that makes Alex Ross-Iver’s music impossible to pigeon-hole or easily categorise.
After the fall of the Iron Curtain, Russia’s fledgling dance music scene was initially dismissed by music critics in the West. However with an explosion in the number of dance music clubs within Russia reflecting the country’s seemingly insatiable appetite for electronic music, many are now realising that the Russian dance scene is innovating in its own right rather than merely copy Western styles and artists such as Alex Ross-Iver are at the forefront of this revolution..." - musicmuso
"Four Room Song, released off Alex's Most Downloaded Songs MP3 compilation, is an experimental Indie-electro song that not only takes influence from a myriad of electronic artists but adds a futuristic Indie-pop vibe that is helped along by the strong, female vocals on the song. With slow, gentle beats plodding along at a steady pace, the track opens strongly and provides a sturdy platform on which to showcase the vocals. Steady and breathy, the vocalist sounds like a modern day Kylie Minogue so strong and bold is her range. It quickly becomes obvious that this kind of gentle techno track is the kind that ideally suits this woman’s vocals and
complements her well. - altsounds
