Alex Smoke Intro:
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.
