(Plus8, M-nus, Drumcode, Visionquest)
Alexi Delano dwells in the perfect balance between shiny minimalism and dark vivacious techno. With more than two decades on stage he has been able to combine different roots and facets of the contemporary music scale. Born in Chile, raised in Sweden and later adopted by New York, Alexi became part of the Swedish wave of electronic music producers of the mid 90’s, alongside fellow Swedes such as Adam Beyer, Cari Lekebusch and Jesper Dahlback. 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.
Throughout his time in the music industry, Alexi has been nominated for The Swedish Music Award “Pr3 Guld” an alternative to Swedish Grammy, produced six
albums and released countless amount of records on established labels such as the historic SVEK imprint, Drumcode, Plus 8, Minus, Visionquest, Ghostly International,
Spectral, H-Production, Get Physical and many more. With a production and DJ style swaying between house and techno, he is consistently able to re-invent himself with each new release.
After relocating to London in 2013, Alexi took a step back from recording music for record labels and started experimenting beyond the border of the classic 4/4 beat
producing original pieces for short movies, adverts and fashion projects. In the early months of 2017, Alexi has made Amsterdam his new home where he is
currently finalizing three projects, an album with his old friend and colleague Jesper Dahlback under their aka ADJD, a new collaboration compilation; ‘The Art O fCollaboration 2.0’, and preparing to launch his own record label New Future Series.
It’s all in a day’s work for Mr. Delano.
He’s a man who seems to be made of music.
