Biography

After having discovered electronic music in clubs, Alan Braxe started producing in 1997 and made his first Vertigo track on Thomas Bangalters emblematic Roule label.

The following year, one of the greatest hits in electronic music was born: Music Sound Better With You. This came about thanks to Alans collaboration with Thomas Bangalter and Benjamin Diamond, under the Stardust name.

This experience made him anxious to create his own independent label Vulture in the year 2000, in order to produce his own sound and to multiply the number of artists with whom he could collaborate.

The fist title of Vulture Intro once again proved to be a hit in France and internationally. Little by little, it became a classic on dance floors.

For almost ten years, Alan Braxe consecrated himself as an artisan with a passion, basically exercising three professions: composer, producer and remixer.

Since 1998, he remixes artists of different styles and reputations. In solo, he remixed titles of Bjork, Britney Spears, Annie and Kylie Minogue. In collaboration with Fred Falke, he remixed titles of Goldfrapp, Kelis, Jamiroquai or more recently of Justice. All of these productions appeared on Majors such as Parlophone, Virgin, Mute, Pias, Zomba. They also appeared on labels which are a must on the independent scene: Roule, Vulture, Modular, Defected, Domino, Edbanger and Kitsune.

His label Vulture enabled him to experiment new paths as he did with Rubicon cowritten with Fred Falke, In Love With You The Paradise or as he did with his last single Addicted which will be released on Kitsune Maison 5th compilation on 4 February 2008. Vulture also enables him to produce artists, notably Lifelike and Kris Menace: Discopolis, whose video was made by Seb Janiak (filmmaker for Janet Jackson, Daft Punk, Robbie Williams).

Today, Alan Braxe still works on the International scene and is concentrating increasingly on production work for other artists. His own next single Nightwathcer will be released summer 2008. The track is currently being played on Radio One by Pete Tong and Trevor Nelson, Nightwatcher Show Me alongside Killa Kela and Fallon.

For almost two years, he has been performing as a DJ all over the world, USA, Australia, Europe, Ibiza (Terrace at Space) and he is rediscovering the ambiance of clubs which made him fall in love with electronic music.
