Born in 1991, Alexis Delong begins his career as a member of the band INÜIT, with which he releases one EP and one LP between 2015 and 2018, spending these years playing about 300 gigs. During the Inuit’s album production process, Alexis Delong starts working with Benjamin Lebeau (The Shoes). They’ll eventually produce two LPs together (Alexis Gredy, Polydor / Raphael, Columbia) between 2019 and 2020. After that, Alexis Delong works with Ian Caulfield, OJOS, Yoa, Zaho de Sagazan, Disiz, Miossec, many projects in which its production aesthetic can be refined, namely a very textured sound, based on many manipulations and sound collages, modular synthesizers and mixed with live instruments, resulting in a minimalist proposal leaving room for mistakes and randomness to exist.
His productions are alive, raw and instinctive. Alexis Delong’s sound is influenced by London bass (hyperdub) or Belgian bass (r&s records), minimalist music in particular John Cage and Ryuichi Sakamoto, the raw and sensitive folk of the Kings of Convenience. It is also very marked by the post-punk’s industrial and incisive energy of the Hacienda’s finest hour.
