Based in Paris, France, Aleqs Notal is a french DJ and producer specializing in House music. Born in the 1980’s in the Paris suburbs, this huge underground music enthousiast is well accustomed to the big stage and could already be found behind the decks in the mid-2000’s. The variety of formats that he flawlessly conveys music through is dominated by a predilection for vinyl records, which he has been collecting since a very young age. Aleqs belongs to a generation of artists building on over a decade of experience in their field.
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. Clekclekboom Recordings and its posse have gained a great visibility thanks to recurring shows at reknown Paris clubs like Concrete, 6B, Monseigneur, Java or the brand new club Virgo. The word is also spreading worldwide with weekly Sunday shows on Rinse France, and the crew often deploys its members to perform international venues. Aleqs Notal is no exeption to the rule when it comes to bringing the good vibes abroad; his busy agenda has already seen him play at venues like Panorama Bar, Fabric London, Piknic Electronik in Montreal, or touring Asia with fellow label member French Fries (Cakeshop in Seoul, Arkham in Shangai).
Beside his unrivaled 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, his next release is due late September on the third Paris Club Music Compilation. Fall-Winter 2015 are busy for Aleqs Notal with a new EP, “Disparity” also coming on Orlando based label Finale Sessions at the end of the year. Don’t miss on that one!
