Evol Ai, artistic moniker of Slovenian based musician, producer and dj Alan Roposa, represents the emotional half of his musical orientation, while the other half Qualiass aims more at his energetic soundscape. Evol Ai is smile hunter and emotion cultivator, knowing that smile and tears come from the same place. It’s the love in reverse, it is love in chinese and it’s what the “I” loves.
Background wise, Alan’s first major 12” Qualia release titled Qualia Nation EP came out in 2004 on Minimal Records. Thru the past decade, he’s been musically evolving his aliases from Qualia, Qualia Six, Qualia 6, Qualias Dead to Qualiass and Evol Ai, wrapping over 20 releases on various labels around the world (see discography belew). As well as he did remixes for Laurent Garnier, Franz Ferdinand, Lindström a.m.o.
Besides producing, making music for video games, advertisements and theater, Alan’s been involved in various bands as a guitar player and the man behind the machines, most notoriously with fellow studio partner Yanoosh (Ohmfat), with whom they had a series of fresh and unique sounding live performances, which concluded in 2011 as full band support for The Klaxons at various festivals and clubs. Besides distinctive live shows with the band, Alan also tends to put distinctive element in his dj sets, which are a kind of a hybrid mix between dj, live and re-edit approach from tech to disco. As such, Evol Ai and Qualiass sets always leave the dancers satisfied and fulfilled with eclectic and broad range selection of music, feel-good attitude, creative mixing, “fu*k the genres” storytelling and “let’s have fun, because we are not rocket scientists” stage presence.
In 2012 he started doing music under the name Evol Ai, debuting with first ever track La Fu on Nang’s Beach Disco Sessions 3 compilation by Ilya Santana. His first solo release, two track La Fu EP came out few months after on respected label Nang Records and got support from many big names in nudisco, deep house and house scene, with the track La Fu selected as one of the favorites at the time by Bottin and heard on numerous mixes and dance floors around the world.
