Alex O’Rion releases new studio album ‘Nostalgia’

Alex O’Rion presents an eloquent album called Nostalgia which features deep and atmospheric melodic house tracks that are truly timeless.

This isn’t a release that focuses around hit singles or a selection of dance floor orientated tracks that have been shoehorned together. Instead, it’s a heartfelt release with mood setting music that it is easy to lose yourself in.

Don’t get us wrong, all of the tracks on this release have their time and place on a dance floor, but there is a bigger focus on triggering emotions, rather than trying to make people throw their hands in the air.

Alex O’Rion is already a successful producer, globally respected within the progressive house scene with the help of the music he has released through record labels such as SUDBEAT, Lost & Found, and Anjunadeep. This release comes via his own record label, Solis Records, and talking about the release, Alex O’Rion said: “The album ‘Nostalgia’ gets its name because it reflects a sentiment that has grown stronger as I’ve aged. Fondly reminiscing about the music of a younger me, I often sense a certain soulfulness lacking in today’s electronic music. In an attempt to explore this feeling, I went on a bit of a self-reset and a touch of reinvention.”

Although this album stays true to what fans expect from Alex O’Rion, it also shows off a deeper side of his sound that has a focus on organic textures. This has led to support for “Nostalgia” coming from organic house stars such as Sebastien Leger and Acid Pauli, alongside progressive house icons including Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren.

Discussing the album’s change of sound compared to one of his EP releases, Alex O’Rion said: “This involved changing my usual routines and adopting some old-school methods, such as sampling beats and instruments from vintage vinyl records, blending them with my current sound. The album is intended to feel personal and intimate for my listeners. I aimed to create a moment of intimacy, as if they are listening to the songs alongside me while on their way home.”

There is a crossover appeal to this album for anyone who likes a range of atmospheric or melodic house genres, and you can buy a copy HERE.
