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 and in the UK Balearic game. As an extension of this, last year he launched the Phantom Island label with some friends 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.
