Alex Smoke

describes his music as «melancholic melodic electronic». A hypnotic potion of operatic strings with the depth and space of 21st century dub reggae production, peppered with latin or afro rhythms, grimy electro-breaks and encompassed in broodingly warm bass. The Glasgow-based DJ and producer is being touted as a possible player at a table containing a whole litter of talented young producers, people like Dabrye, Luciano and Matthew Dear, but he doesn’t see this, he still aspires to these people.

Which song do you listen to when...
you feel like 1982?
Prince - Delirious
you take a bubble bath?
Snoop Dogg - Doggystyle

Maybe that came to mind because of the opening. But I'm not that smooth...

you relax on a beach?
Rhythm & Sound - With The Artists

It would never happen. But hypothetically «With The Artists».

you prepare a candle light dinner?
Sergei Rachmaninov - Preludes For Piano

While I'm cooking i like Classical. It makes me feel sophisticated! 

you go to a club?
Underground Resistance - Hi Tech Funk

Underground Resistance always wins the day in the end.

you run naked through a cornfield?

I think I’d prefer a reverential silence.

you prepare for an important date?
Michael Jackson - The Way You Make Me Feel

It would be like a scene from one of those cheesy 80's date movies.

you are in a depressive mood?
John Tavener - Funeral Ikos
Radiohead - Pablo Honey
you want to disturb your neighbours?
Autechre - LP5
you drive a car late at night?
Aphex Twin

I don't have a license, so if I was driving it would be joy-riding! So something fast and rough like Aphex Twin.

you jog?

Pah! No chance. Even if I did jog, which I don’t, my iPod doesn’t like to play when it’s in motion!

you are love sick?
Khonnor - Handwriting

The boy sounds like he's about to end it – but in a good way.

you make love?

Spooky music.

you stay in bed?
The Beach Boys - God Only Knows

Depending on what I was doing in bed. Either The Beach Boys - God Only Knows, Good Vibrations, etc, etc or gabba.

you sit in the subway?
Dr Octagon

Hiphop's good for travelling. 

you wake up?
William Basinski - The Disintegration Loops I-IV

I hate to wake up suddenly.
