From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alias (born Brendon Whitney) is an abstract hip hop artist and producer. He is mainly affiliated with the Anticon label/collective. His stage name is not to be confused with the hard rock band of the same name.



Alias is originally from Portland, Maine. He moved to the West Coast in 1999 to work on building the Anticon label, as well as to focus on his music. He returned home to Portland, Maine in August 2007.


Alias originally performed as a rapper alongside Sole in the group Live Poets. He also produced songs, but would still rap over another producer's work.

Later on, as Alias began working with Anticon, he produced tracks for most of the major artists on the label. In 2002, he released The Other Side Of The Looking Glass, a record he produced and rapped on. After that, Alias moved away from rapping to focus solely on production, releasing the instrumental albums Muted and All Things Fixable. His production work also moved away from sampling and began to involve more synthesizers and self-played instrumentation such as guitar.

Recently, Alias announced on his Myspace blog that his upcoming album was to be titled "Resurgam", after the Portland ME city motto, which is Latin for "I shall rise again".
