Lexy vs Shades Of Gray – Dondi Bisco

Published on May 1st, 2012

After remixing Shades Of Gray on their critically acclaimed ‘Soul Machine’ album, Lexy (of Lexy & K-Paul) is back for another collaboration with the duo.  The track titles suggest that there’s some cheeky action going on here as deep house, nu disco and the occasional sample are thrown into the melting pot.  The 2 track EP, which will come out on vinyl as well as digital, is released on Lexy’s own label Moensterbox.

Shades Of Gray are the duo of Czech national Michal ‘Schwa’ Ruzicka and Aussie Nick West.  They have progressively established themselves over recent years producing consistently solid tracks and remixes for labels such as Neurotraxx Deluxe, Om Records, Salted Music, Dark Energy, Lost My Dog, Tronicsoul and their home label Beef Records.

Shades Of Gray was born following Schwa’s move to Australia in 2005.  He soon teamed up with local Nick West both in the studio and as a partner in Beef Records. They quickly gained a reputation as one of the hottest acts on the Sydney underground scene and it wasn’t long until they were touring internationally performing from Tokyo to Moscow and Paris to Prague.  With support from the likes of Shur-I-Kan, Miss Kittin, Jimpster, Pezzner, Laurent Garnier and Miguel Migs, SOG have clocked up over 50 releases including the sales chart topping ‘Moog in the House’.

Lexy, aka Alexander Gerlach, has been releasing music since 2006 both on his own, under the alias Mickey Duchamp, and in collaborations Lexy & K-Paul and Moenster.  He has worked with labels including Kontor, MusicIsMusic, Stil Vor Talent and Toolroom.  His label Moensterbox has so far welcomed artists including David August, Soffy O, End Of Tape and Rene Onze amongst others.

The EP will be released on May 7th
