Formerly known as Al Tourettes, and half of R&S’s ALSO (alongside Appleblim), Alec Storey unveiled his Second Storey project in 2013. ‘One Sound’ is the second single from his debut LP ‘Double Divide’, and intertwines Second Storey’s electro and bass music influences over six restless, bouncy minutes. Brand new ‘Layer Lock’ is equally frenetic, but echoes IDM in its micro-melodies and unconventional structure.
Two of Storey’s idols take up remix duties. Luke Vibert provides a sampladelic version of ‘One Sound’, adding splashes of colour in the finest cut ’n’ paste style. Meanwhile Cristian Vogel transforms ‘Layer Lock’ into a shape-shifting head-nodder whose rhythmical shifts delight and confound in equal measure.
