Aleks Syntek launched his career in 1990 with his group Aleks Syntek y la Gente Normal. Over the course of their five-album trajectory, they earned several Gold Records and received MTV Music Awards nominations in Latin America for hits such as “Hey Tú” (Hey You), “Más Fuerte de lo que Pensaba” (Stronger Than I Thought), “Bienvenido a la Vida” (Welcome to Life) and “Lugar Secreto” (Secret Place).
In 1999, he composed the score to Sexo, Pudor y Lágrimas (Sex, Shame and Tears), one of Mexican cinema’s biggest hits of the decade. His composing work earned him the prestigious Ariel award from the Mexican Academy of Cinematic Arts and Sciences. He also wrote the movie’s theme song, which was a resounding hit all over Latin America – a song that remains part of the region’s cultural canon.
Also in 1999, the American magazine Keyboard paid tribute to his synth wizardry with a special feature about him titled “The Mexican King of Pop.” This recognition from one of the world’s leading music-pro magazines spread his fame far and wide.
In celebration of his 10th anniversary as a recording artist, he released the greatest-hits album 89-99 in 2000. It featured the new song “Tú Necesitas” (You Need), a neo-disco cross-format smash that became a staple at radio, parties and clubs all over Latin America. Meanwhile, the album went Double Platinum.
He kicked off the new millennium as a solo artist, with his debut album De Noche en la Ciudad (Night on the Town) going to stores in 2001. The same year, he supported the annual Teletón in Mexico and El Salvador that raises money for children with serious ailments, by contributing the song “Un Paso Más” (One More Step), which appeared on record in 2003 with his compilation album Múltiple. This album also features his ubiquitous theme song for the long-running Mexican comedy series La Familia P. Luche (The Plush Family), starring Eugenio Derbez.
His second solo album Mundo Lite (World Lite) gave him a major international hit in the Spanish-speaking world with the absolutely perfect duet “Duele el Amor” (Love Hurts) alongside the Spanish legend Ana Torroja, former vocalist of Mecano. Crossing the Atlantic and going into heavy rotation in Spain, the song was then discovered and re-recorded by DJs in Germany and translated into Italian, Portuguese and English. “Duele el Amor” earned Aleks Syntek two Billboard Latin Music Awards in the United States. Mundo Lite also spun off the hits “Te Soñé” (I Dreamed of You) and “A Veces Fui” (At Times I Was) and became his second Double-Platinum album.
Experimenting with a more orchestral sound that left room for shades of Latin folklore, Aleks Syntek released his third album, titled Lección de Vuelo (Flight Lesson), in 2007. It generated the hit single “Intocable” (Untouchable) which spent several weeks at No. 1 on the airplay charts. Furthermore, its song “Historias de Danzón y de Arrabal” (Stories of Danzón and Rabble) was recorded in Europe by the prominent Greek singer Elena Paparizou.
Also in 2007, Syntek joined two rock icons, Bon Jovi and Argentina’s Fito Páez, for a series of concerts in Mexico and Colombia that raised money for environmental and senior-citizen charities.
In 2008, the Australian diva Kylie Minogue asked him to compose a special version of her song “In My Arms,” which they performed together in Mexico City’s Sports Palace to the delight of over 20,000 spectators.
Aleks Syntek celebrated 2009, his 20th anniversary as a recording artist, with a compilation album and a live album that includes his greatest hits, previously unreleased songs, and an emotional documentary on DVD. All in all, a worthy retrospective of a remarkable career in Latin music.
He quickly followed that project with a new studio album, Métodos de Placer Instantáneo (Methods of Instantaneous Pleasure), which produced the hits “Loca” (Crazy Woman) and “Sin Motor” (Without a Motor). He also delighted us by writing and recording “Mujer Animal” (Animal Woman), an explosive Latin-funk duet with the salsa maestro Rubén Blades.
Once again helping others in need, in 2010 he produced a grand, celebrity-studded event called “México por Haití” in Mexico City’s National Auditorium. The funds raised by this gala helped build a school in Haiti in the wake of its devastating earthquake.
Celebrating Mexico’s 2010 Bicentennial, Aleks Syntek teamed up with the controversial urban artist Jaime López to compose the song “El Futuro es Milenario” (The Future Is Millenial) performed by the Mexican divas Eugenia León, Regina Orozco and Daniela Romo. This majestic performance also featured the Orchestra of the Americas, conducted by Alondra de la Parra.
Luminaries of Latin culture such as Eva Longoria and the soccer player Rafa Márquez have also expressed their admiration for his music and his humanitarian spirit, inviting him to appear at concerts and events that help sick and abandoned children.
In 2011, he served as judge in the Mexican version of The Voice, alongside Alejandro Sanz, Lucero and Espinosa Paz. This program broke viewership records in Mexico.
Early in 2012, he was invited by none other than Elton John to appear with him at a massive concert for peace in Mexico that took place in Guadalajara’s Omnilife Stadium.
Now, with a new record label and new management, Aleks Syntek delivers another surprising, gem-packed studio album, simply titled Syntek. A production that dazzles us with electro-pop and New Wave stylings, influenced by the 1980s, yet absolutely up-to-the-minute.
