Alex Drift


For Alex Drift, electronic music is multi-layered and varied. He thinks beyond genre and combines a wide variety of styles to create his unique sound of disco, house, rap, soul and indie. He consciously uses classic arrangements and keeps his songs simple. This gives his songs a certain pull. At the same time, Alex never loses sight of the content.
