MIKE MONDAY (New Addition)
As a member of the Subsonic Music family and a dedicated lover of our sunny (most of the time) shores, Alexkid is making a special trip to Australia to help us launch the 2012 edition of the festival. If you were lucky enough to be in the Pizza Lab at last year’s festival when Alexkid rammed the tent with a dancefloor full of people ready to close the party in style, you’ll know exactly why we want him back again this year. If you missed out, we’re sure you’ll have a good time regardless.
From roots in early nineties Parisian rave culture, this multi instrumentalist, composer, remix artist, DJ and sound engineer has set on a formidable trajectory since Laurent Garnier invited him to put out his debut single, ‘Playground’, in 1997.
Alongside definitive producers like St.Germain and Mr.Oizo, Alexkid spent many years as a flagship artist for Garnier’s F Communications label, playing a pivotal role in sculpting the profile of French electronic music both at home and abroad while developing his own inimitable identity.
An electronic missionary, Alexkid has taken his epic live arrangements and inventive DJ sets to the four corners of the map and everywhere in between, transferring his early infatuation with the live spectacle into moist celebrations of the moment. Connection is key, and Alexkid’s intuitive interpretations of other artist’s music extends far beyond the DJ booth. After ending five years of residency in Berlin's Weekend club, he has finally moved to the German capital where he's now set his base at Water-gate club.
In demand as a remix artist, he has lent remixes to everyone from Damian Lazarus to George Michael, Phonique to Crookers, Sasse and Kiki, Spencer Parker to Nina Kraviz, cultivating a collaborative understanding that is no more present than in the latest releases.
Alexkid tamed his ecstatic compositions into works of profound balance and precision. Working as much with the absence of sound, punches of silence punctuated slick productions in a body of work that complimented the dance floor with elegance.
With a collaboration with Berlin minimal troupe M.A.N.D.Y in the works, latest releases and remixes on Rekids, Cadenza, Cabin Fever and NRK, forthcoming releases planned on labels such as Jimpster's Freerange, combined to his multiple tours and dates, Alex takes no rest... « Sleep is for the weak... »
