Alex Smoke

I went and saw Alex Smoke perform live at Chinese Laundry here in Sydney last Saturday night. I really enjoyed it, awesome minimal/tech sounds from start to finish, had me dancing non stop. A fantastic performance! I’ve been a big fan of his sounds for the last couple of years, have bought just about everything he’s released. I wish I heard his tracks played out more often here in Sydney, quality music! Andrew Wowk wrote a great review of the night, check it out here. It was really quite comfortable in the cave surprisingly, cool with space to move, and a great vocally appreciative, music loving crowd. I think the minimal and intelligent vibe/sounds went over the heads of the usual d*ckhead element that you come across at this venue, and kept them in the other rooms.

I also went to the Becks Festival Bar – Mad Racket @ Hyde Park Barracks for a few hours before Chinese Laundry, and checked out Hot Chip [Live] and DJ Chris Duckenfield. I think I was too hyped to be seeing Alex Smoke shortly after to really take much notice of the sounds. It was fun to catch up with friends and old faces there though.
