Murcof, the primary project of producer Fernando Corona, returns to The Leaf Label for the first time in thirteen years with a mammoth and visionary double album, The Alias Sessions.

This collection brings together all the elements incorporated into the project to date - meticulous sound design, ghostly samples, forceful beats, diaphanous atmosphere - but pushes the sound even further in terms of both abstraction and beauty. This is electronic music of exquisite tension and ecstatic release, moving from barely audible details to explosive peaks, much of it delivered by earth-moving bass.

On Murcof:

“By mixing the beats and glitches of electronic minimalism with the orchestral drama of 20th century classical, he spurred the creation of a new kind of home listening market populated by Marsen Jules, Max Richter, Deaf Center and Ryuichi Sakamoto in various collaborations”
Resident Advisor

“Corona seems to hear music differently, allowing him to compose tracks that sound like no one else”
Pitchfork

“Murcof attains a meditative, monumental grandeur”
The Sunday Times

“What’s extraordinary about Corona’s Murcof project is that is has cut through the narrow confines and splintered genres of dance, electronica and experimental creative music to find a bigger audience”
The Guardian

“A singular, near-inestimable talent”
NME

“Disturbing panoramas of sound that combine the electronic and live instrumentation in a seamless and unique way. Superb, dark ambience that needs to be heard”
DJ
