Leeds-born, London-based artist Alex Mills has unveiled her first ever EP ‘Raw To The Floor’, out now on Ultra.
A five-track release, ‘Raw To The Floor’ features production credits from some of the hottest names in contemporary dance music. The EP opens with Mills’ February single ‘Want You To Want Me’, a distinctly British flavoured house cut combining her seductive vocals with a rave-inducing bassline and subtle breakbeats. The track has since racked up over 3 million Spotify streams.
The first of four singles on the EP, ‘Want You To Want Me’ is followed by ‘Keep Pushing’, a slick, high-energy club heater in collaboration with party-starting Manchester duo Solardo, and ‘Stamina’, a similarly rapid-fire piano workout produced by Bristol-born favourite Eli Brown.
Next up, the fluttering, progressive synths of ‘Hunted’ – a majestic creation produced by Grammy-nominated wizards Camelphat – offer the record’s most stirring moments, before things are closed out with ‘Worst Enemy’, produced by fast-rising duo Illyus & Barrientos and Jonas Blue. The track was chosen by Danny Howard as his Hottest Record In The World on BBC Radio 1 and described as “perfect to close out the summer season” by Lionheart TV.
A singer, songwriter, DJ and producer, Alex Mills has collaborated with some of the biggest artists in dance music, including Basement Jaxx, Hot Since 82, Chris Lorenzo, Joey Negro, Sonny Fodera and countless others. Amassing millions of streams across her back catalogue, Mills’ prolific output led to her being dubbed the ‘producers choice’ of vocalist by global tastemakers Mixmag.
A landmark release, ‘Raw To The Floor’ is Alex Mills’ most distinctive body of work to date.
