Alexi Delano dwells in the perfect balance between shiny minimalism and dark vivacious techno.
Born in Chile, raised in Sweden and later adopted by New York, Alexi together with fellow Swedes such as Adam Beyer, Cari Lekebusch and Jesper Dahlback became part of the Swedish wave of electronic music producers of the mid 90’s. Moving from Scandinavia to New York influenced him to combine the heavy compressed Swedish sound with the vibrancy of the creative music scene of Brooklyn.
Alexi has produced five albums and released countless amount of records on established labels such as the historic SVEK imprint, Plus 8, Minus, Drumcode, H-Production, Get Physical and many more, while simultaneously experimenting beyond the border of the classic 4/4 beats, producing original pieces for short movies and fashion projects.
Today’s exclusive premiere is Alexi Delano’s take on, Venezuelan Producer, Pablo Sanchez‘ ‘All You Need’. Here, Alexi fuses together the bright melody of Sanchez’s original and his own strengths, a surging background bassline leads while dramatic oscillating synths meander taking things darker with an increased low end drone fluttering around the sparse percussion.
“All You Need” is available 22 February on Galaktika
