Alex Gopher (born Alexis Latrobe)[1] is a French DJ who composes electronic dance music and house.

Career[edit]

Alex began his musical career playing bass in the band Orange with future Air members Jean-Benoît Dunckel and Nicolas Godin.[2] After the group split, he began to create electronic music and embarked on a successful solo career. He prefers to work alone, but since he does not sing, he recruits vocal talent or uses samples of singers like Billie Holiday.[3] His track "Brain Leech (Bugged Mind Remix)" plays on the Electro-Choc station of Grand Theft Auto IV. "The Child" was featured in the movie Amélie.[4]
