Alex Smoke, Text Book Music, Muska
Thick as Thieves is proud to announce that Smoke will make a return in July for another not-to-be-missed national tour.
Touted as Techno lord, Rambler, Social Tease, Alex Smoke is restless. He’s hungry to explore new electronic ground. And he prefers never to trace his careful steps.
While his music may reside on the dancefloor along with his renowned live sets, it also resonates so much further than this. With a production style drawn from a myriad of influences that blur the boundaries between electronica, techno, classical and hip hop, Alex Smoke's music evolves in new directions with every new project he undertakes. Musically it’s consistently fulfilling, regardless of the listener's preferred genre.
He at once sounds utterly contemporary yet strangely alien all this underpinned by his classical training. It’s an uncompromising work, and one that’s as arresting as all Smoke’s equally singular statements over the last eight years of his dynamic career. ‘Wraetlic’ unifies both sides of his split musical personalities. The classical swoon with a huge understanding of composition, yet grafted to the nocturnal and narcotic wild tendencies of dance music’s continual and vital revision.
