Born in the 1980’s in the Paris suburbs, this huge underground music enthusiast, originally coming from the Hip-Hop 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 defines him reflects 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 awarded as a World Champion Turntablist by Red Bull in 2010 and has become a master in the art of making people dance by bringing his own vibe when behind the decks.

More than ten years after he started live shows, 2014 saw the release of his first extended project on CCB Recordings: the A.E.T. EP (Ancient Egypt Theory). 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.
