Alex banks – Brighton based multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer signed to Monkeytown Records

Alex Banks’ musical mission is going into overdrive. After building a hefty reputation via killer DJs sets across Europe and a few extraordinary remixes (Bonobo, Husky Rescue, Andreya Triana etc), he’s now signed to Monkeytown, the label owned by doyens of German electronic/club music, Modeselektor. His talents are showcased on the album, ‘Illuminate’. Two years in the making, it’s the culmination of Banks’ initial aspirations, at once rich in production artistry but ready for the dancefloor, seasoned with melodies and the leaping vocals of Gazelle Twin’s Elizabeth Bernholz, yet boasting a sonic heft and ambition on a par with the likes of Jon Hopkins, Daniel Avery and Nicolas Jaar.

Banks grew up in the sleepily rustic and preposterously named Buckinghamshire backwater of Newton Blossomville. At an early age his guitar-playing older brother introduced him to the heavy rock sounds of Guns’n’Roses, Metallica and Megadeth, as well as the cosmic jamming of ‘90s space rockers Ozric Tentacles. Meanwhile he was also riveted by TV coverage of Orbital playing at Glastonbury. He started concurrently learning to play guitar, drums and piano. He was good at them. Local village kids would ask him out to join them only to be told, “Not today, I’m just learning a Steve Vai solo.”
Before long Alex was doing GCSEs in both Music and Expressive Arts Music. Once he understood the concept of four track recording he was unstoppable. His music teacher suggested he take an A Level in Music Technology alongside his GCSEs. He flew through it with flying colours and moved to London aged 16, living with his brother to study for the second year of a Diploma in Professional Music at Brunel University in Twickenham. The years that followed were, he says, “debauched”. “I was 17 when I first went to a rave,” he recalls, “I’d been to [trance Mecca] Escape From Samsara then went to a free party afterwards. I remember it was the first time I’d heard jungle, at 8.00 AM, with loads of energy, dancing my arse off.”
As his diploma finished he threw himself into the underground techno scene, going to events such as K.O.L.S. in Acton and the regular Club 414 in Brixton, as well as annual pilgrimages to Glastonbury. He earned money playing jazz gigs with his brother, spending it on monitors, mixers and the like. Eventually he signed up for a degree in music at Westminster where his contemporaries included Jamie Woon and producer Al Shux (co-writer and producer of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ mega-hit, ‘Empire State of Mind’). He wrote a dissertation on ‘The Effects of Commercialization on the Artistic Value of Dance Music’, which he dismisses as “mostly bollocks”, he learnt how the music business worked (“useful – it suddenly didn’t seem so impenetrable”), spent days and nights in the studio trying to put an album together (“which gave me a deeper understanding of my potential”), and, perhaps, as important was one particular evening spent at Mr Scruff’s Keep It Unreal night. “It crystallized my ideas about what I thought I could do,” Alex says, “He played an eight hour set, starting off with ambient then upping the tempo very slowly and ending up at drum & bass. It made me think lots about whether all dance music is art and where I fitted in. The way he unified a crowd, aged from 18 to 50, propelled me to a deep confidence that this was what I was put in on earth to do, not part of any particular scene but just binding elements together musically.”
