Following two very successful 12s, one EP and one full length album on Trapez, plus several 12s on his own label CMYK, Madrid’s Alex Under has become one of the most sought after techno artists in Spain.
The deepest meaning of ‘collage’, defined by Max Ernst, is the general application of Arthur Rimabaud’s ‘delirium’: I accustomed myself to simple hallucination, I saw quite deliberately a mosque instead of a factory, a drummer’s school conducted by angels, carriages on the highways of the sky, a salon at the bottom of a lake: monsters, mysteries, a vaudeville poster raising horrors before my eyes. We could describe collage as an alchemic compound of two or more heterogeneous elements, derivate by their unexpected approximation generated deliberately by the search of systematic confusion and distorted perception.
That’s Alex Unders’ musical universe. Based in Madrid, this producer is the ‘CMYKmusik’ label manager.
