    We've been chomping at the bit for info on Alix Perez' debut LP, 1984, since Friction dropped the dime on the early info last year. It looks like in a little over a month's time, we'll have what's sure to be one of the most talked-about albums in 2009 in the shops, and we figured we'd give you eager Dogs the full scoop!

    While we don't have audio on this yet (soon come), we're told that this album definitely explores all facets of Alix' production, taking us from 140BPM downbeat ("1984") textures to cuts that combines the spoken word (featuring the mighty Ursula Rucker, Yungun and the Foreign Beggars), to the sounds that hooked you on Alix in the first place ("Contradictions"). "I'm Free", which dropped on Shogun Audio earlier this year as a teaser, has already gottenr ave reviews, and is included on the CD version. It's great to see that the vinyl pack features four tracks that aren't on the CD version - one will truly have to grab both versions to understand how Alix has grown during his 25 years on this planet (understand the title now?)... watch this space for an interview with Alix himself, where we'll try and dig deeper into the album. Until then - salivate!

    Alix will also be embarking on a UK/Europe tour this fall, starting in September. Here are the dates we've seen, so far:

    18/09: Bongo Club - Edinburgh
    25/09: Stealth - Nottingham
    02/10: The Office - Truro
    03/10: Kiff – Aurau, Switzerland
    08/10: Soul Cellar - Southampton
    09/10: Fabric - London
    10/10: Icon - Berlin, Germany
    14/10: Audio - Brighton
    23/10: Democrazy – Ghent, Belgium
    06/11: Motion - Bristol
    10/11: Tuesday Club - Sheffield
    21/11: White Rabbit - Plymouth
    27/11: Take Control – Prague, Czech Republic
    05/12: West Indian Centre - Leeds
    18/12: Bar Mango – Reading
    More tbc




    Thanks to the author of the article on DogsonAcid for the information

    Can't wait for this

    my thoughts exactly i dont mind white labels when there for 12's or ep but an album has to have the artwork, i waited so long for the full release of travel the galaxy but it was well worth it

    Solid tracklist. Would have preferred 1984 to be on the LP but whatever. Standard bagging business :love:

    Can't wait for this. It's a shame "sorrow" isn't on the album. A release for that tune is looking ever more unlikely :(
