Felix Benedikt, alias Alpha Tracks, is a producer based in Vienna, Austria.
At the beginning of the millennium, he received his basic musical education under the wings of Erdem Tunakan at Cheap Records and started DJing. From 2012 till 2018 Benedikt worked at TONGUES, a Viennese record store with an in-house studio, where 2016 the project Alpha Tracks was born. The first release on Erdem Tunakan’s reactivated label Morbid has had a strong international resonance.
The music of Alpha Tracks is mainly produced live on analog machines, often with different guest musicians, focussing less on technical fetishism than on live dynamics of studio collaborations. The result is a sound that refers to the rave era of the early nineties. Alpha Tracks blithely ignores tempo limits or taste doctrines. Aesthetic taboos or even fragments of often maligned genres, are not picked up as a retro fetish but are folded into the contemporary oeuvre with playful Viennese charm.
Felix recently teamed up with Filip Storvseen (also known under the alias Oprofessionell and as one of the founders of the Norwegian label UTE ) for a new musical project called KINETA.
