Brighton-based electronic producer Alex Banks is set to release the third single from his recently album Beneath The Surface. This Friday, he will release “Falling Down” with a remix from ITAL TEK, out on Max Cooper’s Mesh imprint.

“Falling Down” is a seven-minute sonic journey. Dark and haunting melodies play alongside fluttering arps and a sturdy drum beat. The song becomes more melodic with a large progressive section that meshes the early parts with soaring melodies. The track keeps on evolving with a bit of breakbeat at the end for one last curveball.

"’Falling Down was the last track I wrote for the album. There’s something liberating about having almost finished making a record and then crafting one more tune that encapsulates all of its aspects, and concludes the writing process," explains Banks. "Drawing influence from dark techno club experiences, its fierce rolling beats and driving bassline contrast with melodic elements and warm nostalgic synths. Designed to move dance floors and inspire emotion with a euphoric build giving way to filth laden raw beats.”

“Falling Down” with the remix will drop this Thursday, November 28.
