ChristianXAlabaster started with a track shrouded in mystery, but after 10,000 listens in under a few weeks, 10,000 Records in conjunction with The XXX were ecstatic to reveal the two men behind the track Smile. With a glimmering electronic backdrop of 2am east London Electro, Alabaster perfectly compliments Christian Patey’s warm vocal range and melodic overtones.
This collaboration between Chrisian Patey and Alabaster has been no easy task however, as the pair live nearly 16 thousand kilometers apart (East London to Brisbane). But the chance to work with Smile clothing (which donates a shirt to someone in need with every purchase) led these two to record in Studios, countryside barns, shipping containers and airport lounges to bring smiles to kids and listeners alike.
The meshing of soundscape electro beat maker (Alabaster) and vocal illustrator (Christian Patey) is sure to drum up more excitement over the coming months considering the over 10,000 listener hype surrounding the ‘mystery artist’ first single release. It should also come to no surprise that Smile was mixed and produced by part of Simian Mobile Disco. His influences helped ChristianXAlabaster mold this 3-minute daydream into the track garnering a landslide of “Beautiful & Breathtaking” comments accompanying the song.
This is the only first taste of this accomplished duo and ChristianXAlabaster are set to whisk us away on another relaxing journey soon, but until then you’re sure to be smiling in anticipation
