Under the Mallorca Sun (Freerange Records, Cadenza, Berlin)

Born in France and resident of Berlin, Alex Kid grew up on our island, with the heat of the beach and his aunt’s great vinyl collection, which helped to develop his early musical concerns as a guitarist in several funk bands. A few years later, when he was already a skillful sound engineer, Alex would begin to experiment with electronic music, submerging himself in the early 90s Paris rave scene. In 97, the one and only, Laurent Garnier, would invite him to edit his single debut “Playground”, which would help to start his career, alongside formidable producers such as, St. Germain and Mr. Oizo and this lead to the high grade FC Communication label.

 

He has collaborated with artists like Hector Zazou, Jean-Philippe Rykiel or Readymade and he has remixed George Michael, Phonique, Cadenza, Redkids or Freerange and has even had some fame, when he composed the music for Jennifer Lopez’ perfume ad and when he was part of the “Three meters under the earth” soundtrack.

 

An electronic visionary, a multi instrument player, composer, producer, re-mixer, DJ and Instagram lover, this Mallorca-French man is recognized internationally, for his creativeness, his vanguard sensibility and surgical precision. In his sessions, which are acclaimed for their elegance and connection to the dance floor, you will find from nu-house jazz to Drum & Bass, from abstract hip-hop, old disco, deep or garage.
