Biography[edit]

Starting to DJ at the age of 14 and producing at 17, he has collaborated with other artists such as Jenna G, Redeyes, Sabre and Specific, and his inspirations include artists such as Calibre, Marcus Intalex, Ill logic and Raf, Artificial Intelligence and D Bridge.

Now represented by Coda, he regularly plays out in London and around Europe. He describes his DJ style as, "eclectic. I play generally deep but dip into various aspects of drum & bass. I like to read the crowd and let the music breathe. I find mixing in the right musical keys essential. I basically see it as a journey."

Alix Perez's tunes are played regularly on radio shows such as BBC 1Xtra and he has been doing many mixes for radio and podcast. He receives support from respected DJs and producers such as Bailey, Fabio and Bryan Gee. On one of his BBC shows, Fabio called the song "Forsaken" by Perez, the best drum and bass track of 2010.

Alix has been featured in popular drum and bass magazines and has recently been on the cover of ATM Magazine in a feature on the "Leaders of the Nu Skool" in the drum and bass genre. He has had coverage in Knowledge Magazine, London-based dance music magazine One Week To Live, and regularly has his releases reviewed by DJ, Mixmag, Knowledge and ATM.

In 2009, Perez released his debut album, 1984, on drum and bass label Shogun Audio. The album features collaborations with Foreign Beggars, Lynx, Truth, Yungun and Spectrasoul among others.

In 2013, Perez released his second studio album, Chroma Chords, through Shogun Audio. It features collaborations with Two Inch Punch, Riko Dan, Foreign Beggars, Jehst, Phace & Misanthrop among others.
