Info: Hailing from Saint Petersburg in Russia, Alexander Daf is well know globally for releases on many labels and compilations. His debut album release was in 2008 on the major American label System Recordings that entered the Beatport Chillout Top 100.
While you were sleeping is the first Alexander Daf release on Electronic Soundscapes and the label's seventh release up to date. An atmospheric extended player embellished with unfolding cinematic soundscapes and gradually enveloping sonic topologies.
A Thousand Tomorrows is the starting point of a submerging cinematic aural shower of floating electrified synths and soft deep baselines. Just when you think that the track is too slacked off, structured rhythmic patterns towards the end, offer hints for the While you were sleeping direction.
So Long is a steadily uplifting airy cinematic soundscape. Cross pointing atmospherics with sweet harmonized filters, tribal scented laid back beats build up a deep panoramic track.
Next, is Sleeping This Evening capturing the release's essence, bridging the atmospheric side with the more glitch scented breaks and deep basslines side of the release.
Birth introduces the listener to glitch influenced breaks accompanied by organic sweet sounding flutes. Innovative and well balanced, Birth lies at the heart of the more experimental side of the release.
Warm organic string chords tingle the senses under an angelic vocals veil on Drowning in a feeling. A nostalgic vibrational cleansing track and unique collaboration between Alexander Daf and Maria Grigoryeva. Unperturbed vocals soak in lush synth pads and soft earthy bass grooves.
I Left You There is the ideal epilogue for the end of the release, gently shifting up from where Drowning in a feeling left us.
The ideal soundtrack for an Autumn rainy afternoon!

Hard to fit into genres Alexander Daf's style lies in the downtempo domain, showcasing a variety of styles and directions. Smooth sonic textures and divine cinematic soundscapes are Alexander Daf's landmarks.
