Alex Storrer has a curious backstory. In the late ’90s he was a well-known figure in Swiss hip-hop, rapping in dialect as part of the duo Bligg’n’Lexx. Today, Bligg is Switzerland’s biggest mainstream rapper. Lexx, meanwhile, has become a respected connoisseur DJ, earning a place among the clubbing greats in Switzerland. As an extension of this, he launched the Phantom Island label with his friends Kejeblos, Ron & Tobi in Zürich.
Storrer’s soaring house productions and edits have a distinct yearning for harmony. This is music with a certain quietude, a shimmering quality, like the mixes he’s done for the Test Pressing website. But Storrer’s peak-time sets in clubs are perhaps the most revealing. Cavorting between disco, dub, house and electro, he weaves intricate narratives that are full of surprises.
