Civil Music will release the London producer's debut album in November.
The London-based artist Alex Melia has been releasing music for five years, most of it dubstep and drum & bass for labels like Subway and Civil Music. The latter imprint will release Tangram, Reso's first release of the year after two singles on the label in 2011. The album sees Melia tackling familiar brands of aggressive but glossy dubstep and drum & bass, mixed in with more melodic experiments. There's a heavy emphasis on synths, even including a synth guitar solo in closing track "Tabris." The title comes from a Chinese puzzle supposedly emblematic of the album's varied set of influences, which include japanese Manga and Rephlex Records (according to a press release). The album features new tracks, and will be preceded by an EP for "Check 1,2" in October.
