Tone Ranger (AKA Alex Simon) makes immersive dance music that embodies the magnetic and supernatural beauty of the American Southwest.
Blending deep house rhythms with ethereal instrumentation (lap steel, harmonica, whistling, voice), he has earned a reputation as one of the region’s most original and sought-after live electronic acts. Performances have often been described as “heart-opening,” seamlessly moving from ecstatic peaks to grounding sonic valleys. In August 2018, he released his debut EP with Jumpsuit Records, and has since opened for international acts like Quantic, Random Rab and Dirtwire. His forthcoming offering, On the Horizon (March 2019), is a vibrant collection of songs developed on dance floors in the American Southwest.
Here, Simon continues his exploration of desert tones and timbres, this time bringing vocals and violins in with his signature alchemy of steel guitars, Western vinyl samples, and natural percussion. On the Horizon is a glimpse of what is to come for this visionary producer as he carves a definitive path through the North American soundscape. It also represents an ever-deepening connection with the elements and with spirit, which resides dormant in a culture of material riches and relentless social maneuvering. This is music of radiance, not afraid to shine and integrate the shadows cast in that brightness. And above all, it’s for you to feel, to move with, to dance to.
