For Alexi Delano, producing sweet sultry house and techno comes naturally. He has released his fathoms-deep music on numerous high-end house labels such as Earthtones, Plumphouse, Svek, Turbo Recordings, Plastic City, and of course both his own labels, Test 542 and Corner Shots. With a production style that sits neatly between house and techno, Delano has collaborated with some of the biggest names on the scene, including Jesper Dahlback , Cari Lekebusch, John Selway , Casey Hogan, Jori Hulkkonen , and Lucas Rodenbush (aka E.B.E ).
Born in Chile and raised in Sweden, Delano took to the decks in the early '90s, playing a combination of hip hop, funk, and soul. At a mere 15 years of age he had his own Stockholm-based radio show. Delano discovered electronic music on a trip to Spain in the early '80s at a time when acid house ruled the airwaves. Upon his return to Stockholm, he wasted no time in hooking up with the city's premier producer, Cari Lekebusch, with whom he co-produced "Life On The Other Side," released on the Stockholm-based Loop imprint. His debut release was well-received by the underground dance fraternity, spurring him on to produce further recordings for labels such as Missile, Hybrid, Primevil, and more recently, Strive, Jericho, and Immigrant.
In the mid '90s, Delano relocated to NYC for fresh musical inspiration and a change of scenery. He spent his time both developing a new moniker, ADNY (Alexi Delano New York), and a new label, Corner Shots, which has gone on to become one of the most respected deep house labels on the circuit. After releasing successful full-length projects for both Earthtones (in collaboration with Jesper Dahlback) and Plastic City (with Casey Hogan), Delano was approached by the Montreal-based Turbo Recordings imprint to produce an artist album. The result -- Selections '97-2000 -- is an incredibly rich collection of both percussive and vocal house music that stimulates the mind as much as it moves the feet. It's all in a days work for Delano though. He's a man who seems to be made of house music.
