Based in Paris, France, Aleqs Notal is a French DJ and producer. Born in the 1980’s in the Paris suburbs, this huge underground music enthusiast, originally coming from the Hip-Hop and scratch scene, is well accustomed to the big stages and could already be found behind the decks in the mid-2000’s.
The variety of formats that he fawlessly conveys music through is dominated by a predilection for vinyl records, which he has been collecting since a very young age. Alexis belongs to a generation of artists building on over a decade of experience in their feld.
Combining infuences from Detroit and Chicago, the sound that defnes him refects 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 Hip-Hop scene, Aleqs Notal is no stranger to huge live performances. He was
the DJ of the famous French Hip-Hop band "Saïan Supa Crew" from 2005 to 2009.
He was awarded as a 1st World Champion DJ in 2010 by Red Bull and has become a master in 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 at the Rex Club. Alexis has also gained a great visibility on Paris scene thanks to recurring shows at renowned clubs. 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 frst extended project on CCB Recordings: the A.E.T. EP. 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 confrms his position among the most promising producers in the hexagon.
After releasing the deep and powerful EP “Disparity” on the American imprint Finale Sessions in early 2016, 2017 saw Aleqs Notal’s afrmation on the international scene with “Ascending Nodes”, on Patrice Scott’s imprint Sistrum Recordings.
The end of 2017 will also bring two releases. "The Paris-Lagos Soundscapes" out in September on Phonogramme Records, a soulful, percussion and African-music oriented EP recorded between Lagos, Nigeria and Paris. And another one in the same Notal’s vibe, called “Slow Down Sonance” out in November on Visions Recordings.
In April 2018, a new EP called "Insideus" is out on Molly's label RDV Music.
Don't miss on these ones !
