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 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 2015 Alexi Delano keeps touring around the globe whilst finding time to work on a string of solo projects plus new collaboration works with his friends and colleagues.
It’s all in a day’s work for Mr. Delano.
He‘s a man who seems to be made of music.
