Alexi Delano and Santi "Xpansul" Ferrer met during 2004 in Madrid, Spain and have been recording together since. 2006 marks a strong release year for the duo with their debut on Plus 8 as well as a single on Adam Beyer's True Soul label. Both together and separately their recording and performing careers have each taken shape over the last 10 plus years. "Intelligence Reframed" rattles and rolls in true Plus 8 dancefloor spirit, shifting in precise yet animated techno. The A-side lead off track "Echolocation" sends a driving but relaxed beat into a sinister zone of space. "Cosmic Antipathy" grooves along with its electro stabs, square - wave bubbles and cosmic tones that squelch and electrocute. First off the edge of the B - side is "Vegetotherapy", a deeper approach to their sound with a slightly industrialized attitude. "Meta - Intellectual" takes the record out on a surgical bang, tossing up layers of shadow melodies and manic loops of metallic percussion.
Alexi originally hails from Stockholm (Sweden) where he grew into DJing and producing alongside friends Cari Lekebusch and Jesper Dahlback during the early 1990's. From living in cities like Barcelona and now New York, his musical & DJ perspective is global and his sounds continue to expand. Santiago Ferrer runs three labels, Discos De Lata, MSX and Sindicato Records, based out of Madrid. He is one of Spain's most respected electronic music artists and has new releases coming out on Apnea and his own Discos De Lata label.
