With so many American producers moving to Berlin over the past few years, New York can seem a lonely place
for it’s diminished community of techno producers. Or it could be a blessing in disguise, bringing people
together and spawning fresh, exciting collaborations in a way that’s not possible when a scene reaches
saturation point...That’s exactly what’s happened with Alexi Delano and Tony Rohr and judging by their
outrageous new Machine Run EP, it’s a match made in heaven.
Living just a short subway ride apart in Brooklyn, they’ve been hooking up in Alexi’s studio every week for the
last 18 months to share musical ideas (or just indulge in their mutual appreciation of good food and wine).
Needless to say, a strong friendship and deep respect has developed out of this working relationship, a
relationship that has transcended stylistic boundaries and rewritten the rulebook accordingly. Alexi elaborates
further on their special dynamic, “...Tony works a lot on the Live side of things so he has a clear view of what
works in his own music whereas I come from the DJ turned producer side so it leads to some pretty crazy and
quite different dance floor tracks that seem to grab people off guard.“
Like all producers, they already had tons of ideas that were recorded and partially sequenced but sparks
suddenly began to fly when they started merging these "under construction" tracks together. Run 0, Run 1
and Run 2 are the results of sessions that began when Tony arrived at the studio with some parts of Run 1
which became the A side on the Plus 8 release. Together they transformed these rough ideas into the finished
article along with the more dubbed out Run 1. Run 2 was created from scratch soon after as it was decided
that Run 1 needed a ’twisted’ sister track.
Without ever getting too dark, the Machine Run E.P. has some really spooky vibes running through it. Alexi
sums it up as “the sound track to a futuristic Bela Lugosi movie“ while Tony proudly admits he’s “always been
into squashing peoples brains on the dance floor and these tracks were kind of designed to do that“. Joking
apart, their out-of-the-box approach and desire to continually push the envelope as far as it will go has proven
to be rewarding. As Tony concludes “We don't want to follow trends or styles or whatever, we just want to
make some very, very futuristic shit. Period.“
