“Alexander’s blend of lush, expansive harmonies and dreamy atmospherics forges new sonic realms and eclectically captivating soundscapes.”
Alexander Vincent has steadily been making a name for himself as a producer over the years, too—releasing four tracks with alternative R&B chanteuse Sabrina Claudio, remixing the work of talented friends like Kan Wakan, and recording a new joint with the one and only JLO. From arena anthems to home studio bangers, working in a pop context has only deepened his relationship with the nuances of fly electronic music. It’s been a journey that has left Alex fortified with the confidence to release music borne from his singular vision and eclectic inspirations.
Alexander Vincent’s debut single, “I Won’t” is a part electro-pop ballad, part R&B-tinged mission statement. The artist works through feelings of being silenced using a pastoral, measured yet deliberate delivery. “I won’t say a word to you, you already heard me,” he coos over the track as it builds into a sumptuous, woozy IDM shuffle.
The track harkens back to when Alex originally left his hometown of Toronto for L.A. dead set on becoming an electronic music producer before the pop world took him in. Inspired by the minimalist glitchy shuffle of artists like Aphex Twin and Burial to infuse a genuine groove and feeling into his compositions, this year he returns to his roots with the debut of his first music in his own name.
