R60.00 GETS YOU IN
Alex Smoke is a Scottish talent making electronic records that blur together European minimalism, pop structures and emotional strings and pads. He has released two full length albums, ‘Incommunicado’ and ‘Paradolia’ [Soma Records] and a slew of singles and remixes, many of which have arrived on Soma and German label Vakant.
His debut release ‘Random As’ came out in January 2002, but Smoke has always been immersed in music. In his youth he sang in a choir for four years (a far cry no doubt from the mournful tones on his ‘Don’t See the Point’ or ‘Never Want to See You Again’), his parents are involved in classical music, and he has classical training in cello and piano.
Smoke’s own productions are often described as moody, a reputation he doesn’t shy away from. His debut on Soma was the euphoric ‘Chica Wappa’, described by Smoke as “undoubtedly the most optimistic track I’ll ever write. My music will never be this upbeat again.” His wish might have come true: recently Smoke’s remix work on Vakant and especially his reedit of Junior Boys ‘In the Morning’ have focused heavily on melancholic electronica, although Smoke has a noisy, brash side too, evidenced on big tracks such as ‘Meany’ and ‘Brian’s Lung’.
Smoke both performs live and DJs, and his agenda as a spinner is perhaps well represented by ‘Sci-Fi-Hi-Fi Vol. 3’ from 2006. His debut DJ mix combined a fascination with dub techno, classic Detroit (Smoke is not averse to playing old records at all) and new European minimal techno.
