Electric Shapes

Aleksandr L
Label interview
11.07.2022

There is an old primal feeling which seems to emanate from Aleksandr L. As a youngster he used to love sharing tapes amongst his friends and family: sharing is caring… Maybe music served as some form of escapism to the cold and grey lithuanian weather?

His next step and natural evolution from analog to digital gave place to a podcast series: Electric Shapes. Another remedy in the form of music which eventually turned into the label of the same name, thanks to his partner in crime Jokios Kulturos’s prolific contributions. The sound of Electric Shapes is clearly aimed at an open minded dancefloor bridging the long gone days of alternative raves with the clubs of today. Amongst a continuous (broken) beat the catalogue is also peppered with some more downtempo and relaxed tunes which are a perfect partner to the end of the night or the start of a new day. The main purpose being to spread the love and bring peace through sound: Music is the cure.

O

Earliest musical memory?

AL

The amazing Twin Peaks (again) soundtrack by Angelo Badalamenti. I was 3 or 4 years-old. And it is stuck in my head from the very first time I heard it.

O

Why did you start a record label?

AL

I was already running a soundcloud channel with the same name. The pandemic forced us to do something different. My friend Dovydas Platakis aka Jokios Kultūros was producing a lot of music which was never released. So he offered to release some of his tracks. And it all started.

O

How would you describe the label’s sound?

AL

Very eclectic. We love to release the sounds we are enjoying ourselves. And it was never about some specific genre.

O

Some insight on the mix you recorded?

AL

I tried to revive my childhood memories and made the mix as a Twin Peaks (and again) episode. The main themes are on the intro and outro. Inside there are some scary tunes but also some funny, shiny tunes. There’s something a bit mystical. Rhythm is also there. A few yells from kids and some spoken word. I was trying to leave it somewhat chaotic and give more freedom to the listeners. Like Lynch was doing in every episode of his show.
