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. As a worldwide touring artist, he has performed his captivating live sets across South America, North America, Europe, Africa and Asia. The Berliner is also a dedicated and prolific producer, releasing forward thinking projects that span the genre spectrum since 2003.
With his particular brand of uniquely musical club music, Alejandro challenges the understanding of what dance music could be. Throughout the years, he has developed a distinctive sound palette – a perfect balance between electronic and acoustic sounds, sitting at the intersection of deep house, minimal techno, tribal, and melodic dance music. Constantly defying the lethargic ‘dj tool’ concept, Mosso strives to produce immersive musical experiences, unapologetically pouring emotions, melodies, and harmonies into the traditionally rhythm-dominated genre.
Throughout the years, labels ranging from titans Cocoon, Sushitech, Third Ear and !K7 to the forward thinking Hivern Discs, Sol Selectas, and Akbal Music have welcomed the Mosso sound to their catalogues. In 2017, he released his album “Isolation Diaries”, a first class listen with all the hallmarks of an experienced artist purveying his finely tuned sound. The album presented remixes from two of the most interesting and influential electronic music producers of the last decades: Burnt Friedmann and Ricardo Villalobos.
The Argentinian runs his own label, focused on releasing untarnished material with a sense of character and individualism present in each release. The self-titled label, mosso, has presented seven incredible releases from Alejandro, both vinyl and digitally, with more on the docket in the future.
Mosso’s live show is the quintessential presentation of his artistic career. Over the years, he has perfected the art of moving dancefloors with nightly innovation and a full command of intricate rhythms. Swaying between percussive tribal beats, 4×4 house grooves, and melodic emotional layers, Alejandro Mosso has rocked crowds at clubs such as Watergate, Rex Club, Fabric, Womb, Tresor, Amnesia, and Kater Blau. He has also headlined festivals such as the Spanish and Argentinian editions of the esteemed Mutek.
In 2018 he released his biggest project so far, RITUALS. The three-vinyl album, with over 75 min- utes of textured and intricate music, refreshed the underground scene and set the stage for an artistic rebirth heading into the new year. 2019 finds Alejandro pursuing a masters degree in Sound Studies and Sonic Arts, in which he creates intriguing and immersive sound art installations.
Mosso has recently released two remixes, including a stellar dance-centric take on Robbie Akbal’s Fanaya. He has an EP lined up for the surging Label XYZ, as well as other projects in production to be on the lookout for going into 2020.
