Alex Alarcón aka Sustainer lives and works in Barcelona, Spain. He got into making music when he was a child, playing guitar and homemade percussions, and then began experimenting with sequencers and synths in the mid-90's. After releasing some beat-oriented stuff, his sound began to evolve towards less-rhythm oriented music, near to ambient drone and electroacoustic fields with deep textures. His latest releases include 'Radiolas' on Room40 and 'Taps' on Tessellate Recordings. Alex prepared a fantastic guest mix for us called 'Antidotes', which is dedicated to the 'film noir' genre... so expect lots of jazzy, vaporous & smoky infused tracks... from 1957 until today. We also asked him to tell us a little bit about his selection, so keep on reading and listening!
