Oscillate / verb - to move or swing back and forth in a regular rhythm. Alexander Flood has developed and refined a strong, progressive voice and style on his kit through his 17 years performing and studying. Previously graduating top of his year, he has been the recipient of many prestigious awards including Australia's Best Up-andComing Drummer in both 2012 and 2016, The John 'Slick' Osborne Scholarship in 2017 and the Helpmann Academy Jazz Award for Top Overall Graduate in 2018. In 2020 he signed with 6x Grammy nominee Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah to release Alex's debut LP "HEARTBEAT" and "The Space Between" in 2022. 2023 finds Alexander aligning w/ Berlin's Jakarta Records to release LP "Oscillate" - a blistering, hard-hitting meld of infectious rhythms, pulsing keys, and a swingin' groove that melds into a genre-defying conglomeration of creative compositions and collaboration. In mid 2022 Alex travelled from Australia to Berlin, where he assembled a dream team crew of creative innovators featuring Hungarian keyboard player Àbáse, Australian bass guru Horatio Luna, and Brazilian flautista Paulo Cedraz. Together the group cut six unique dance tracks at Berlin's iconic Jazzanova Studios, engineered by Grammy nominated Axel Reinemer. From the shuffling broken beats and dancing flute melodies in title track "Oscillate" to the experimental uptempo "Deja Vu", the momentum of the music ceases to stop. "U R THA 1" features a driving jungle sound of repitched drums, vocal chops and 808 bass, and "Berlin" captures a classic funky 90s house feel powered by 4-on-the-floor kick and melodic basslines from Horatio Luna. Paulo Cedraz shines on flute in the Caribbean influenced "Ginealach", and the LP finishes with the head-bopping "Hüpf" giving the listener a taste of some down-tempo beat music atop a bed of Àbáse's lush rhodes. From top to bottom, the unique voices and powerful musicianship of each band member is obvious.
