"Collage is the debut for Madrid's Alex Under on Plus 8, delivering a sound that is complimented exactly by its title. A mastermind in blending a variety of electronic influences, his hybrid version of rhythm and sound is a moody mash up of jazzy yet experimental techno. His productions are based on deconstruction and variation with equal parts of humor and precision. The dancefloor-aimed 'El Encuentro' moves and weaves rhythm and percussion. 'Fortuito' is challenging as it is playful, starting off with scattered clicks grasping for the beat until the kick delivers, bringing the mood into gear with a simple loop melody and deep bassline. Not afraid to bring the beat, Under heads back to the floor for 'Distantes,' which kicks it into gear from the start, working a minimal approach into maximized power. His attention to noise, effects and off-key sequences can make your hairs on your neck stand up. Collage is the mixed beauty of a tough techno record complemented with elements of minimal purity. Madrid's man at large, Under the DJ and producer along with a crew of friends have been making waves with their CMYK and Apnea labels along with his excellent releases for Germany's Trapez."
