Peter Lix – Fade Away (Spotify)

“Peter Lix latest release in the Drum & Bass scene is full of emotion and artistic ideas. The experienced producer has cleverly combined some soft vocals and keyboard loops with powerfull percussion patterns. "Fade Away" is a real gem for every sensitive listener.”

The latest offering from Peter Lix and the Dojo Audio stable, Fade Away is an energetic Drum & Bass workout with emotive melodies and an alluring vocal hook.

Built upon a foundation of atmospheric pads - reminiscent of the deeper D&B sound of the mid nineties - Fade Away blends its uptempo vibe with soulful flavours.

Through pensive chords, bittersweet guitar phrases, subtle sweeps and reverb-heavy fx, the track creates a dreamy vibrance that floats over solid drums and a driving sub bassline.

The chorus section delivers the instantly catchy ‘Don’t fade away’ vocal, and is further complemented by subtle piano notes.

Fade Away is conceptual, in that it cleverly blends melodic elements to create a sense of emotions “fading away”. Yet, as we’ve come to expect from the Peter Lix sound, an air of hope is left lingering within the bittersweet keys…
