One of Australia’s budding new exports, Luke Alessi, is a relative newcomer to the moodier Australian house & techno scene, but no stranger to creating music that moves dance floors. As he finds his groove Luke Alessi is quickly making a name for himself at home and overseas with his unique approach that beholds an enchanting storytelling nature. Transitioning from a darker melodic-techno background, Luke has been developing his sound pallet that sits in between house & techno, with warm melodies and afro grooves which bring more light than darkness to his records.
Since the projects inception in 2018 Luke Alessi has received nods of praise from leading producers both locally and overseas, initially sparked by his remix of Lastlings ‘Déjà Vu’ that gained support from the likes of Black Coffee and RÜFÜS DU SOL and carried through to prominent releases on Oliver Koletzki’s A Tribe Called Kotori and Sabb’s label RADIANT. Despite the uncertainty of 2020 a consistent run of releases became the norm for Luke Alessi, starting with his ‘I Just Wanted To Tell You’/’Moving’ 2-tracker on Swiss label RADIANT (Sabb, Black Circle, OXIA), and followed by debut releases on A Tribe Called Kotori and California’s Desert Heart Black. Luke Alessi remixes came for Made in Paris, GNTN, Zola Blood and Squire, with the latter seeing his first release on respected German label Mobilee and opening the door for a standalone EP release with them in May 2021.
As restrictions ease over Australia Luke Alessi hits the road taking his music from the studio to the dancefloor playing for some of Melbourne’s top crews including Thick As Thieves, Novel and Revolver Upstairs. In April and May Luke heads north to Queensland for festival sets at Rabbits Eat Lettuce and Arcadia, as well as Gold Coast’s iconic Elsewhere club.
Striving to create music that’s designed to take you somewhere else, even if just momentarily, there’s a lot in store for this young Melbourne producer. Stay tuned.
