Grey Area is an acclaimed down-under electronic music act from Sydney, Australia.
The project of composer, producer and DJ, Alex Salter. Grey Area formed in 1992 and followed with a self-titled debut release 'Grey Area' in 1997 - a bubbly concoction of looped percussion, heavily affected voice and instrument samples as well as countless overdubs and studio manipulation.
The album was well received to positive reviews worldwide. Grey Area also began playing to audiences in 1997 and those live tracks plus several studio pieces resulted in the next release, 'Absolute Grey Area' (1999). Absolute took a more technological approach to the first album, with a slower more solemn feel and a more mature and cohesive overall production.
In 2000, another shift in the music took Grey Area in an even more electronic direction, culminating in the third album 'Penumbra' (2002), followed by extensive global touring. Alex has DJ'd at some of the planet's biggest parties while his tracks have been licensed to dozens of compilations.
