Watch & Listen
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 together with fellow Swedes such as Adam Beyer, Cari Lekebusch and Jesper Dahlback became part of the Swedish wave of electronic music producers of the mid 90’s. 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 produced five albums and released countless amount of records on established labels such as the historic SVEK imprint, Plus 8, Minus, Drumcode, H-Production, Get Physical and many more.
With a production and DJ style that sways neatly between house and techno, he is consistently able to re-invent himself with each new release.
Simultaneously Delano has been experimenting beyond the border of the classic 4/4 beat producing original pieces for short movies and fashion projects.
Also in 2011 he was nominated for the Swedish Music Award “P3 Guld” an alternative to the Swedish Grammy.
Now in 2013 Alexi Delano is finalizing his 6th album “The Art Of Collaboration” for the Swedish Techno label H-productions as well as re-launching his own record label AD Limited whilst continue to write original pieces for a string of projects.
It’s all in a day’s work for Mr. Delano.
He‘s a man who seems to be made of music.
Fil Latorre is a San Francisco-based DJ and producer, who has been on the electronic music scene since 1993. Less than a year after stepping behind the turntables, he won the first annual Fever/Buzz Battle of the DJs in Baltimore, Maryland. Since then, he has played at events throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and South America . Fil is the co-founder of Washington D.C.'s Dirty Crew, as well as San Francisco's acclaimed Stap[e. Not pinning himself to one distinct style, Fil has sifted through a mosaic of influences, from classic jazz and obscure '80s Italo-disco, to create a soulful, deep techno and house sound.
His older brother was a mobile dj. At the age of 14, Joey would sneak in to his brothers studio when he was gone and scratch the shit out of anything he could get his hands on. Back then it was all hip hop but when those A. sides couldn’t be played anymore, he discovered the B. side dance tracks and was instantly hooked.
His sound selection and journey-ess programming has taken him to play in far off lands like Kenya, Mexico, Hawaii, New York and all the major clubs in San Francisco. He held down a 3 year residency at the legendary San Francisco night club, The End Up doing Sunday Mass.
Now he spends his days mastering the art of fried rice, whiskey consumption, looking busy while not doing anything at all and working on original material which he will be releasing this year. He also does a new party in San Francisco called Common Ground which is now on its third year and counting which I hear is kinda sorta of amazing. Check out his soundcloud below.
