"The Hunger (1983) directed by the recently deceased Tony Scott and starring David Bowie, Susan Sarandon and Catherine Deneuve has been the inspiration that Alek has served to make this album, The Hunger is one of those movies that is about the impossible of eternal love, nothing is forever, impossible to meet promises...
Alek Stark presents its new project italo disco as Alessandro Forte, inspired by this mythical film of the 1980s. The Hunger EP was produced between June and August this year with machinery analog weighing, Oberheim Xpander, old school modulars, TR808, VP330 Vocoder, etc. In the theme song, I Love You Forever, emphasizes careful production with his Roland Super Vocoder.
Alek is an italo disco lover and this work is once again demonstrating his interest in a genre that follows closely with producers such as Kid Machine, Ali Renault, Brassica... that emphasizes how they work slowly and muscular beats, where the italo sound serious, difficult and only some producers have achieved years ago.
On side A, I Love You Forever, a theme to the purest style italo where rhythms coalesce with the power of the vocoder and melodies you trap to melt in the bass line. In this same face remixes of high-level made by two of the producers who admire and which stands out the Synth Alien vocoders or the incredible Kid Machine "solo", and how they have adapted the original song to your own style.
On the b-side, far more serious, in which the concept of the album is more evident, presents three tracks filled with impossible arpeggios, analog warmth and layers of melodies full of feelings in which Alek demonstrates his italo disco love.
Purely analog audio, old school vinyl mastered and manufactured by Record Industry, the best vinyl factory at the world. The sleeve has been manufactured on Antalis black cardboard, printed in silver with red details hand-painted one by one.
