Alpha Boy

Berlin’s Alpha Boy is one of the coolest producers I have come across in recent months.

This 25 year old Xibalba first dipped his 80’s inspired toe in the waters of electronic music making when he received a PlayStation 1 and Music 2000 for X-mas, the rest is a history that is still being written. Falling in, mostly with the Dreamwave crowd, Alpha Boy is even more 80’s influenced, citing the likes of Harold Faltermeyer as an influence. These influences drive him to create danceable, yet strongly emotive, retro synth music.

He’s just releasing a new EP, ‘The Return Of 1986’, which perfectly showcases his cinematic brand of Electro. Check out these two tracks. ‘Stardust’ is an deep, analog, spacesynth tune with an almost EBM-esq driving force layered with sweeping optimistic lead lines while ‘The Wraith 1986’ (presumably named for the awesome Movie featuring the even more awesome Sherilyn Fenn!) is an epic midnight drive of a tune with hints of ChipTune amongst the surging leads.
