Having received wide critical acclaim for his remixes of Bonobo and Andreya
Triana, and award-winning DJ mix for Ninja Tune's Solid Steel series, Alex
Banks spent two years in the studio working on his latest album Illuminate. After
meeting 50weapons' Phon.o when they played together in Zurich in 2013, the
link to Monkeytown was made. These 10 tracks explode with vitality, flecked with
subtlety and depth, at once utterly contemporary but tinged with all the genres and
flavors he's ever dipped into. The single, All You Could Do, for instance, replete
with a Phon.o remix, comes on like a pin-sharp glitch-hop Esben & The Witch,
but elsewhere ''Sheya'' throbs like Art Department's deep house at a dubstep
convention, opener ''Silent Embrace'' is a silky match for the likes of London
Grammar and Jesse Ware, and the bouncing ''Initiate'' is pitched midway
between what Maceo Plex and James Holden are up to. All in all, it's a
potent brew.
