Chilean-born, Swedish-raised, New York adopted and Amsterdam-based producer and DJ Alexi Delano have an impressive back catalogue dating back over two decades and featuring releases on labels such as Laurent Garnier's F Communications, Richie Hawtin & John Acquaviva's Plus 8, Ghostly International's Spectral Sound and M_Nus as well as Visionquest where he returns to here following his collaborative "The Breeze EP" alongside label co-founder Shaun Reeves in 2013.

The title track "Water Colors" opens the release, a smooth and gradually unfolding composition fuelled by an amalgamation of deftly programmed multi-layered melodies that ebb and flow throughout the sturdy rhythmic foundation. Following is Jesper Dahlbäck aka The Persuader's take on "Water Colors" which dubs things out to create a murky submerged feel in contrast, utilizing the original's hypnotic melodies whilst subtly working in a rugged 303 line throughout.

"Communicate" then rounds out the package with a groove-led feel, bringing a squelching acid bass, hooky vocal chop, and modulating synth flutters into the limelight as the shuffled dynamic drum machine workout carries things along.
