Biography

Alpha is a name of at least two artists:

[1] A Bristol, UK / band.

[1] A Bristol, UK / band, founded in 1996. Members include past and present: Corin Dingley, Helen White, Wendy Stubbs, Hannah Collins and Duncan Attwood. Kelvin Swaby. Their latest, twelfth, album is “Alpha.Blueneck” (2013, Don’t Touch).

“Alpha.Blueneck” again features Attwood’s ethereal voice, as on “Eleventh Trip” (Jan 2012, Don’t Touch). Having produced Blueneck’s first two albums (“Scars Of The Midwest” and “The Fallen Host”), Dingley knows much of their work intimately and turned each track on its head, to transform into something quite different. This new recording is a blinded approach to remixes of songs from their first three long players. The mix of Attwood’s distinctive dark and reflective vocals, re-imagined with Alpha’s electronic haze, makes this a distinctive and strangely wonderful piece of art.

Alpha débuted with the album “Come From Heaven” (Sept 1997, Melankolic - Massive Attack’s label), contributing to expand the famous ‘trip-hop’ sound. Sixteen years later, Dingley’s project continues to push boundaries of electronic music, cloudy pop, hazy dub and dreamlike .
