Just a few days out from the launch of this year's Warehouse Project, Alexis Raphael turns in a mix that toes the line between classicist and deep house, making use of tracks from Tom Ruijg, Max Chapman and Maya Jane Coles.
Some big talent will be debuting in Charm City this September at a new weekly Thursday night event to be held at Red Maple. The intimate venue will host artists from Innervisions, Hot Creations, and Culprit in the first three weeks.
The London DJ gives his two cents on how the current debate in clubland is directly related to how the DJ scene has evolved over the last 20 years.
Alexis is part of London’s new breed of international electronic music stars. He earned his stripes across the pirate radio stations of North and East London during the late 90s and early 00s and went on to hold residencies at such legendary London clubs as The Cross and Bagley’s.
Alexis then knuckled down in the studio and got his first release, Spaceship, signed in 2011 to Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’ Hot Waves imprint bringing him into the international spotlight.
