ALEX SMOKE LIVE - Scotland, UK
Soma / Hum & Haw / Vakant
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
His debut release ‘Random As’ came out in January 2002, but Smoke has always been immersed in music with 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.”
Smoke 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 and new European minimal techno. His Live shows are awe-inspiring epic techno sagas. Smoke is going to tear a part The Likes Of You.
