Having previously released the initial Saint Thug EP on Confession to rapturous applause, Quebec born ANGELZ returns to the prodigious label to release Saint Thug II now available on all digital service providers.
STREAM & PURCHASE: ANGELZ – SAINT THUG II EP
This Def Jam Records producer turned G-house aficionado has truly been making a name for himself ever since he debuted on Confession. Consistently pushing out a frenzy of tracks over the past couple months and now releasing yet another intense slice of dance music on Tchami’s label, ANGELZ’s 3-track Saint Thug II EP continues to push the envelope in quality and innovation.
Kicking off the EP, ‘So Fly’ features the renowned Kaleem Taylor on vocals atop low frequency bass hits and tumbling percussion before diving into a frenetic drop riddled with swirling sirens, vocal cuts and a gritty melody to drive the track home. The follow up track ’98 J.Lo’ arrives in true G-house fashion seamlessly blending rap verses amidst high-pitched synths and staccato kicks. Upholding the trend of pairing rap lyrics to his tracks, ANGELZ also linked up with SLATIN and Hanz Gable to effortlessly round out the EP. Filled with a catchy hook and a funky melody, ‘Supafly’ serves as the penultimate record showcasing ANGELZ commitment to quality and production value.

When Alex Adair unassumingly released his Marvin Gaye sampling single Make Me Feel Better, no one, least of all him, could have expected it to have quite such an instant reaction. Notching up A-list support on BBC Radio 1‘s daytime playlist, hitting the UK official Top 15 singles chart and clocking up millions upon millions of streams and downloads, it was undoubtedly a milestone moment for the young producer.
Taking it in his stride, Alex went on to remix the likes of Ed Sheeran and Jessie Ware, drop another streaming hit in the form of Heaven on Black Butter and casually take the world by storm, one DJ set at a time; from London, to Ibiza, Chile to Tokyo and beyond, Alex Adair has played every continent on Earth in the last 12 months. Well, every continent except Antarctica. Gotta save some life goals for later, right?
Now, it’s all about his new single and the fall out of its steamy, albeit potentially unexpected friends-with-benefits undertones. In the words of Alex himself:
“The premise behind Casual is being in a physical relationship with someone and nothing more. Then when things start to progress and become more serious, you just want to go back to how it was before; ‘Let’s keep it casual’.” – ALEX ADAIR
One listen to Casual and you’re instantly hooked. Just like Alex Adair’s previous earworms, this is classy crossover dance music that’s perfect for your workout playlist and backtracking the afterparty to your next Tinder date. On second thoughts, maybe keep it casual…
Alex Adair Casual is out now via Island Records.
