London’s Alex Melia is Reso. He blends heightened technological futurism with dancefloor prowess to create a densely cinematic musical universe. With the release of his debut LP Tangram in 2012, Reso cemented himself as one of the world’s most forward thinking producers. Emotive and unique, Reso’s new rhythmic possibilities and effortlessly intricate programming combine myriad sounds and stimuli – dubstep, sci-fi, hip hop, Manga, ambient, dnb, Moving Shadow, Rephlex – with dynamic and intelligent structure.
Reso joined Civil Music in 2008 and has released a series of genre defining/changing EPs for the label (as well as several choice Drum n Bass outings on the scene leading Hospital Records). On ‘Tangram’ we saw Reso construct a brave new electronic narrative in the way that timeless artists like Richard D James, Photek, DJ Shadow and A Guy Called Gerald have done for earlier generations. Reso is also a highly skilled drummer (a Brit School graduate) and talented producer who has engineered tracks for Burial and Jamie Woon. amongst others.
Reso is continually pushing boundaries with his profound musical dexterity. An essential artist for all electronic music fans.
