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. The amateurs and bedroom musicians who have built dance music know that sticking to the white keys affords them the possibility to create 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 overexaggerated arrangements” vs “repetitive music, and the ‘bedroom producer’ mindset”. Despite these descriptions, Benedikt takes us on an immersive path of how classic dance music genres translate into the present. Transmitting a multidimensional, investigatory experience with cinematic qualities spanning a wide arc from the world of fast techno through to the otherwordly 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, ‘White Keys’ is no exception.
