Part 2. After delivering his highly acclaimed ‘Contract Labour’ EP on Blue Hour last year, Alpha Tracks returns to base with his debut solo album, ”White Keys”, on Morbid Records. Many amateur musicians and bedroom producers who have built dance music know that sticking to the white keys affords them the possibility to create melodies without professional knowledge. In this context, the album title ”White Keys”, along with the release artwork of amateur piano models, lays in stark contrast to the track titles that steal their names from famous Opera. Benedikt, indicates a sense of humour here that highlights “monstrous and over-exaggerated arrangements” against “repetitive music, and the ‘bedroom producer’ mindset”. Despite these descriptions, Benedikt takes us on an immersive path, showing us how classic dance music genres translate into the present by transmitting a multidimensional investigatory experience with cinematic qualities and spanning a wide arc from the world of fast techno through to the otherworldly realms of ambient with masterful artistry. Few producers bring the mindfulness and vision like Benedikt does, this is evident across his already stacking output and well respected contribution to electronic music. His debut LP ”Whi- te Keys”, which will be released in two parts during February and March, is no exception.

Alpha Tracks debuts on Blue Hour Music. Native Austrian Felix Benedikt will release the four track EP Contract Labour May 1st on Luke Standing’s Blue Hour Music outlet. Benedikt, who began his musical education under the tutelage of Erdem Tunakan at Cheap Records in Vienna, before moving on to TONGUES in the same city – the store where the Alpha Tracks project first began to take shape courtesy of studio located above the shop, sits neatly within the realm of Blue Hour Music’s aesthetic concerns. Of late, Standing has been developing the label’s roster with a keen ear – refining the sound & building a solid and versatile group of producers & live performers around him. Alpha Tracks, with his largely retro-futuristic, but decidedly fresh approach to high energy proto-Trance makes for a glowing addition to Standing’s stable. The music draws from a well worn palette but feels wholly zeigtgeisty in the current climate – pushed 909 drums provide the backbone of the work, with rich, emotive melodies working in tandem with the heady 303 leads – the accomplished, effective finish on the recordings bearing the hallmarks of a seasoned ear – all making for a fantastically satisfying dance floor package. Regarding his approach to production, Benedikt is keen to state that much of his work relies on improvisation – on an organic, real time recording process that draws its energy from the actual physicality and technical limitations associated with working predominantly with analogue hardware. No doubt this is where the magic comes from on Contract Labour, a centered and powerful addition to the Blue Hour Music discography.
