Tennerz: Kings Of Tomorrow feat. Alex Mills – Closer (Sandy Rivera’s Classic Mix) (Deepvisionz)
Further to the touching ‘Back To The One’ along with Rhemi, Alex Mills seems to get even ‘Closer’, this time with K.O.T.‘s Sandy Rivera…
No need telling how her heartfelt performance is such an emotion of its own. The lady being gifted with a unique voice and style. Meanwhile NYC producer Sandy Rivera seems to have come up with the perfect environment. Most likely blending elements of Deep Electro if not Electronica along with fragments of aerial strings. The whole with a smooth piano riff over a bumpin’ bassline.
There’s an undeniable feeling of intimacy therefore being for much on the vibrancy of this composition. This being somehow what one might reasonably expect as far as closer-ness is concerned…

Hailing from Leeds, Alex Mills made her first steps as a signer/songwriter in the UK Garage scene back in the early 2000’s. And although she progressively switched to House Music, working with people such as Audiowhores and Fanatix, she had to wait until 2008 to have a release under her own name. The Dubstep 12″ – ‘Beyond Words / Napa Nights’ – where she shared the duties with DJ Target.
She most likely got to a higher level by the middle of the current decade, keepin’ on expressing an undeniable versatility. As a result, she has collaborated with luminaries such as Joey Negro (under his Akabu) guise. But also with Hot Since 82, Basement Jaxx and, more recently Rhemi.
Besides, her introduction as a welcome to MN2s live roster is pretty much evokative as to what this lady is about. “More than artists, songs tend to inspire me”, she says. “Whether it be Chaka Khan’s ‘Aint Nobody’, Talking Heads’ ‘This Must Be The Place’, Otis Redding’s ‘These Arms Of Mine’ or Kym Sims ‘Too Blind To See It’… I know that songs rather than artists have had a lasting affect on me. That said, there are some whose impact and effect is undeniable.” Quoting Tracy Chapman, Prince, and Etta James. But also Moon Boots and Larry Levan as major influences.
