Crossfade has been following Miami-based DJ/producer Alejandro Sab for a while now, considering his PL0T parties and international artist bookings have been a veritable cornerstone of our local underground EDM scene for the last couple years. At least once a month since 2007 PL0T has made us privy to some of the finest and most cutting-edge contemporary talent in techno and house from around the world, including intimate and memorable performances by Ryan Elliott, Seth Troxler, Lee Curtiss, Camea, and Alexi Delano, among many others.
A fruitful collaborative relationship was forged between Sab and internationally-acclaimed techno producer Alexi Delano in 2009 which has now resulted in the duo releasing their first EP Slipping Through The Cracks on Ritchie Hawtin's prestigious Plus 8 label. This is quite an auspicious beginning to Sab's career as a recording artist and surely the first of many great things to come for the young producer as he continues to make his mark on the international techno scene.
The new EP is out today on 12" vinyl format, and will be available in digital format with an additional two bonus tracks on November 4. With its dark atmospheric textures, slick understated rhythms and relentless subsonic driving basslines, this record is an exemplary slice of contemporary minimal techno.

[Update: Alejandro Sab has informed us that the release date for this record was actually extended until November 23, in order to finalize the mastering process on the tracks. The EP will still be available at the above link on that date.]
