An Argentinian who's musical forte has been bred in Berlin, Alejandro Mosso has been at the forefront of developing innovative percussive, organic and delicate electronic music for more than 15 years. Through challenging the understanding of what dance music could be, Mosso sits at the intersection of deep house, minimal techno, tribal, and melodic dance music.
Alejandro's ability to traverse genre lines, as well as his widespread involvement in diverse artistic projects, is what makes him a prime representative of Label XYZ's artistic vision. With releases on industry titans such as Cocoon, Third Ear, and Hivern Discs, we are thrilled to welcome Mosso to XYZ for one of his more innovative projects to date. The Sirocco EP comes as the Berliner steps into a refreshed musical territory. Touching upon the deeper ends of house, the three track project rests upon his ever-present percussive mastery.
Title-track Sirocco opens the EP, with a groovy rhythm feeding into a soothing melody with atmospheric wind instrumentals. It's a stellar track to summarize Mosso's work, with amazing organic craftsmanship supplementing a dancefloor-moving kick.
Caravan is all about the drums, allowing an untarnished beat to set the tone early in the track. Haunting pads arrive to set a sturdy soundscape, expanding the melody during the bridge before the percussive kick reignites.
Finish off the trio is Adrift, a showcase of Mosso's ability to arrange complex melodic gems. A piano carries the groove, with fluttering synths floating in and out. Adrift is a track for the pensive moments on a dancefloor, and a perfect closer to Alejandro's debut on XYZ.
