French born artist Arnaud Le Texier started Safari Electronique in London, 2005. An artist with plenty of knowledge and substance behind him, Arnaud had been on the electronic music scene for over 10 years before commencing with Safari Electronique. Arnaud’s career dates back to 1990 when he first began managing record shops and building what is now a huge archive of knowledge, taste and musical dedication to his name. His five year residency at Paris’s Queen and memorable sets around Europe over the years that followed perfected Arnaud’s dj’ing skills, earning him his spot in the worldwide scene where he continues to this day to be a prominent dj and production figure.
In 2000 at a Miami gig, Arnaud met British dj James Warren, the pair shared a vision and love of expressing deep and constructed minimal and tech sounds. The two artists decided to launch the UK based labels; Atcha Recordings, which experimented with Deep House and Trip- Hop, and Kailash Records which explored Tech-House, Break beat, Techno and Electro sounds.
5 years later, Safari Electronique was born. Arnaud decided to launch this new label because he wanted something different and where he could sign all styles of electronic music. A label a bit more experimental and personal, which concentrates on techno and minimal sounds, sensuality and dance-floor grooves has since gone on to collaborate and put out more than 40 releases from some of tech/house music’s best known and highly respected artists. Toni D (Antonio De Angelis), Cesare vs Disorder, D’Julz, Italoboyz, Cesar Merveille, Johnny D, Luciano Esse, Miss Fitz, Luca Bacchetti, Ekkohaus and Luc Ringheisen are just a handful of the artists who have produced alongside Arnaud for Safari Electronique over the last 5 years.
At the beginning of 2006 Arnaud decided to live in London where he plays in different clubs or parties such as T Bar, Minimal Hospital, Secret Sundaze, Bread & Butter, Half Baked, Multi Vitamins etc … and he is a regular Dj at Fabric since 5 years. Last September he made quite of an impression when he rammed the room 2 of Fabric for Safari Electronique 5 years anniversary, along side Antonio De Angelis, D’julz, David Labeij.
In 2009 Safari Numerique was born. It’s the little sister of Safari Electronique. On this digital version Arnaud wants to push more upcoming talents with a sound more deep house and deep techno.
Arnaud is a perfect blend of natural talent and raw flare with very distinctive music. He produced different EP’s & remixes for Bass Culture, 2020 Vision, SCI + TEC, Multivitamins, Climatic Sounds, Children of Tomorrow etc… Through his focus on music quality and originality, as well as his performances on an international level, Arnaud Le Texier is becoming one of the leaders in electronic sound.
