Here at Magnetic we get a LOT of submissions from independent artists in our inboxes everyday and once in a while one comes along that really captures our attention.
Theo Alexander was one of those artists. Not a traditional electronic producer by any means but an incredible artist that we would classify in the Neo Classical / Chillout category along with guys like A Winged Victory For The Sullen, Dustin O'Halloran, Yann Tiersen and Nils Frahm. Alexander's weapon of choice is the piano and much like a Nils Frahm, he finds ways to create a melodic dissonance and percussion that takes you on a emotional magic carpet ride.
His latest album The Black Bunny can be purchased here as well as his other works.
The song that grabbed our attention was "Death" which is featured below and is also a free download. Prepare for goosebumps as this melancholy piece works you over in the most delicate of ways.
To celebrate the release of The Black Bunny we asked Alexander to do us a mix to fit the chilly transitioning mood of fall.
Here is Autumn Warmth. Enjoy!
