Alexis Mauri aka Alexkid is a House/Techno DJ/producer, multi-instrumentalist and sound engineer, credited as an early protagonist of 90s Parisian underground culture with no less than three critically acclaimed albums on Laurent Garnier’s F Communications. Stripped back, dubby and a sometimes borderline obscure, Alex constructs atmospheric narratives – maneuvering just as easily through a live set-up as a vinyl session. Stripped back, dubby and a sometimes borderline obscure, Alex constructs atmospheric narratives – maneuvering just as easily through a live set-up as a vinyl session. A self-professed perfectionist always in the search of the perfect beat, Alexkid applies stylistical values from jazz when concurring that ‘things can sound wrong, and yet sound great’. With the inception of his vinyl-only label Wu- Dubs, Alexkid presents an expressive platform for his own music, as well as music of his friends, focusing on unearthing timeless pieces of music. Dirk Mantei aka DMan was a longtime key figure in dance music around the southwestern German cities of Mannheim and Heidelberg. DMan launched an acid house night called Planet Bass in Heidelberg in 1988 before opening the club Milk! in Mannheim in 1990. Along with DJs like Holger “Groover” Klein, Bassface Sascha, DJ Seebase and Gregor “G.O.D.” Dietz, DMan helped to introduce UK styles like bleep, hardcore and jungle to the area. His 2018 12” was released on Workshop after a long absence having released an EP on the self-managed 800track label. Another legendary DJ of the area – Mannheim to be precise – is Shoe Bee. Having played in most of Germany’s most famous venues, with top international artists and associated with distinguished labels, Shoe Bee has also provided mixes for Mannheim´s well known & oldest clubnight “STEREO621”, dedicated to keeping house music underground. We welcome these very talented artists to the the House of Waxx decks tonight.
