Alexis Raphael Bio:
Alexis continues to break the mould within the UK dance scene, with 2011 being a key year. The smooth sounds of his first two releases gave us a glimpse of his ability to create music with individuality, imagination, punch and funk, and a flurry of bookings including Cyprus, Ibiza, Mexico, Dominican Republic and all over the UK have followed.
Originally a talented pianist, North Londoner Alexis has spent most of his life submerged in electronic music, with a long stint on various pirate radio stations, and gigs in every notable club and warehouse space in London. Through his own Crèche parties, Alexis has also showcased a new wave of dance music to the capital.
‘Spaceship’, Alexis’ first release, dropped on Jamie Jones’ and Lee Foss’ Hot Waves imprint in Spring 2011 and was the top selling tune on the highly acclaimed compilation. Next, Alexis carved out one of this Summer’s anthems – ‘Kitchens and Bedrooms’. The track injected soul across dance floors worldwide and with remixes from peers Lee Foss and Richy Ahmed, was undoubtedly one of the standout debut EPs of 2011.
With support coming from the likes of Jamie Jones, Soul Clap, Jozif, Manik, Droog, Robert James, Solomun, James Teej, Tim Green, Chris Lattner, Julien Chaptal, Xpress 2, Jimpster, System of Survival, Laura Jones, Huxley and Anthony Collins, it’s clear that Alexis has a deep-rooted understanding of what works on the dance floor.
In the coming months, Alexis has a full Hot Creations EP due, a Lower East EP, and lots more exciting things that can’t be announced yet. It’s clear that his devotion to music and vibrant personality will ensure that he’ll continue to be a firm favorite not only on the dance floor but also amongst promoters, venues and his fellow DJs across the globe.
