"Minimise is very proud to announce the signing of Alejandro Lopez to our artist family. Alejandro is a native of Gijon in northern Spain and although he has now been producing music and collecting drum machines for ten years, this is his debut release. If evidence were ever needed that patience is rewarded and practice makes perfect, here it is. Like many other Spanish producers who have burst on to the scene in recent times, Alejandro Lopez is one name you are going to see and hear again and again and again in future. In digital form, this release has already taken a favoured place in the 'crates' of some of the world's best known DJs. And now as it finds its way to vinyl, you can expect to hear this record everywhere this summer. A: 'Kernel': touch percussion and bubbling basslines meet sinister, anthemic, soaring melodies in a modern minimal style. One for DJs who like to play longer tracks to packed out, spaced out dancefloors. B: 'Pisces': percussion rich, constantly evolving track whose dark synthesizer passages at times recall Plastikman or perhaps Matthew Jonson all put together with Alejandro's unique sense of style. C: 'Fir(s)t': No-nonsense, looping, storming, frenetic yet still intricately detailed and carefully controlled. Think of the most powerful moments of a great set from the likes of Richie Hawtin and you'll be on the right avenue."
