This week’s One To Watch comes from Alex Poet.
Brazilian-born, London-based producer and DJ Alex Poet has just dropped his latest track ,’Ain’t No Stopping’.
This bombastic soulful house anthem features the powerhouse vocal talents of East London duo HanLei, known for their work with Josh Butler, DJ Spen, Rhemi and Sean McCabe.
Alex kicked off the year with a remix of Mary J. Blige’s ‘Only Love’, which followed three EPs released on his Hot Slice Recordings label. ‘Ain’t No Stopping’ sees Alex move into more sophisticated territory, with a lush arrangement of silky piano chords, funky synths and pulsating bass.
A Mi-Soul and Mi-House presenter and tastemaker in his own right, Alex has already collaborated with some big names, including Full Intention and Lenny Fontana.
This white label release is sure to make an impact on dancefloors across the land (and beyond) this summer.
