"Italic is beginning the New Year with another wealth of emotions. After Love And Other Solutions by Antonelli Electr., Sustainer's Cuántico will be released: It presents deep, delicate and vulnerable instrumental music. Alex Alarcon aka Sustainer was born in Barcelona in 1975. He was a quiet child, but still asked for a drum kit at the age of 7. Without any luck: His aunt gave him a toy synthesizer, which he immediately used to imitate Italo-Disco tracks. At the age of 16, he bought a guitar equipped with sound-effects devices, as his musical horizons continued to grow. By then, he had come across various records that impressed him, including Loveless by My Bloody Valentine and Quique by Seefeel. With this background, he bought his first modern instruments, namely a synthesizer, a sampler and an Atari. He was already almost exclusively listening to electronic music: from dubby to experimental, from Barcelona to Berlin, and from fast to slow. His output grew and grew, as initial live gigs followed both in clubs and at experimental music festivals. Today, Sustainer focuses entirely on producing. His music is light, quiet and enchantingly vivacious, its straight bass drum, softly driving drum sounds, chords and clicks all producing club and pop-oriented music. New Spanish Modernism."
