Sistrum / Visions – FR
Combining influences from Detroit and Chicago, the sound that defines him reflects his early and endless fascination for the sharpest percussions. The always widening range of inspirations Alexis puts forward bears witness to the fruitful musical exploration he has been passionately leading over the years. From the most soulful House anthems to the darkest Techno rhythms, via the fundamental genres of disco, funk, jazz and soul, the possibilities are endless.
Coming from the underground Hip-Hop scene, Aleqs Notal is no stranger to huge live performances and has become a master at the art of making people dance by bringing his own vibe when behind the decks.
Member of ClekClekBoom Recordings since early 2010, he has been carrying out his activity of disc jockey through residencies at La Machine du Moulin Rouge and more recently at the Rex Club. Aleqs has also gained a great visibility on Paris scene thanks to recurring shows at renowned clubs like Concrete or 6B. The word is also spreading worldwide with frequent shows on Rinse France. Following that, his busy agenda has already seen him play at venues like Panorama Bar, Tresor, Fabric London, Piknic Electronik in Montreal, or touring Asia (Cakeshop / Pistil in Seoul, Arkham in Shanghai…).
Beside his technical mastery as a DJ, he has taken time to sharpen skills in music production, giving a mature and distinctive shape to his musical identity. More than ten years after he started live shows, 2014 saw the release of his first extended project on CCB Recordings: the A.E.T. EP (Ancient Egypt Theory). Bringing a raw yet lunar House sound with a seizing analogic feeling, he expresses that hybrid identity through involvements in the Paris Club Music compilations and confirms his position among the most promising producers in the hexagon.
After releasing the Chicago influenced, spaced-out, killer cut “Mare IMB” on the “Various Cuts EP #1” on ClekClekBoom, Aleqs Notal released a new deep and powerful EP “Disparity” on the American imprint Finale Sessions in early 2016. 2017 should see Aleqs’ affirmation on the international scene with “Ascending Nodes”, a new release planned on Patrice Scott’s imprint Sistrum, at the beginning of the year. Don’t miss on that one!
