Alex Wastnidge, better known as From Beyond, is a music producer and DJ based in Oslo, Norway. Since 2018, he has been prolific in building an array of widely praised solo releases, starting with an EP via the legendary Paper Recordings, and more recently seeing his output grace the back catalogues of Nein Records, Golden Soul, Boîte Music, Discotheque Credits, and Paisley Dark Records.
Across both his original productions and remix work, Wastnidge has crafted a distinctive blend of acidic, spaced-out Nu Disco. His style primarily takes cues from 1980s Electro Funk, Italo Disco and Synthpop, but at the same time embodies a forward-thinking approach, borrowing and building upon the innovations of intervening eras in the process.
Despite still being a relatively new name, Wastnidge’s releases as From Beyond have taken little time to win plaudits from some of dance music’s most respected figures, among them Justin Robertson, Jerry Bouthier and Sean Johnston, as well as publications on Mixmag and Le Visiteur, for instance.
