I made this track in a period where I had to put some things in perspective. When something bad happens that you didn’t expect, you realize what you have again and embrace this. It’s good to touch base again once in a while. I tried to translate that particular feeling to this track.

[ Artist Bio ]
Alexander IV is the new moniker of established electronic producer Feiertag.

Feiertag is the alter ego of Dutch producer & live-act Joris Feiertag. Recording and performing since 2015, his sound can be described as electronic yet warm, and with a preference for innovative syncopated rhythms combined with fragments of instruments such as the harp and kalimba. Feiertag’s ability to challenge both his electronic music and drumming skills create an intense and dynamic live performance which he has demonstrated on stages such as Down The Rabbit Hole, Pitch Festival and the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE).

His music has been released on tastemaker labels such as Majestic Casual, Chillhop, Last Night On Earth, Boogie Angst & Sonar Kollektiv and includes collaborations with talented artists such as Pip Millett, Ayelle, and James Alexander Bright.

He released this debut album ‘Time to Recover’ on Jazzanova’s label Sonar Kollektiv and his track ‘Trepidation’ got featured in the FIFA ’22 game.

[ Release Info ]
Established Dutch producer Joris Feiertag embarks on an exciting journey under new moniker Alexander IV. Already being active under his electronica alias Feiertag and as the drummer of electronic funk & soul outfit Kraak & Smaak, Joris is not new on the scene.

As Alexander IV, Joris goes back to his roots and uses the moniker to express his love for hip-hop, jazz, funk & soul. Working with his extended family of renowned musicians, plus using his background as a professional drummer he has recently locked himself in the studio, resulting in the first few projects under the new name – including his highly acclaimed debut single “Don’t Walk Away” (via Stereofox) and an EP via KICKER/Hip Dozer (supported on lofi beats & Gold Instrumental Beats) .

2nd single “Perspective“ via Stereofox pays a tribute to the tough moments of life when you appreciate what you have. His already signature vocal sampling, combined with boom bap beats and fresh horns, make for a perfect head-nodding gem.

“Dont Walk Away” & “Perspective” will be part of his 4-track Signs EP, out April 2023.
