Christian Alxs’ passion for music began at a very young age. Being raised in a very musical, Chilean, family, he started playing percussion at the age of 3. He got infected by the ‘Off The Wall’ album who his uncle used to practice. From that point on music was the most important thing in his life, with Michael Jackson being the most important artist to inspire him.
With his Latin roots, Christian Alxs started playing percussion in his uncle’s Salsa bands and his fathers Latin Folklore ensembles. During the 90’s he got infected w/ electronic music when he heard The Prodigy’s ‘Everybody In The Place’ and their first ‘Experience’ album. After that he started listening to all kinds of electronic music, until he discovered the sounds of Dutch House label ‘Work’. The sounds of Erick E, Rene & Gaston but especially Olav Basoski’s music changed his life. His use of funky bass lines, disco samples, Latin percussion made such an impact on him.
Or like Christian says; ’Olav Basoski made me listen to House, Roog made me fall in love with house…’
Christian Alxs started spinning after becoming good friends with DJ/Producer Bruze D’Angelo in Dutch record store URS, formerly known as Attalos Records. Nowadays Christian mainly works behind the scenes for several artists like Roog, Housequake, Hardsoul and Audiowhores
He’s also as an agent/booker at a DJ agency, but spinning music for a crowd is still what he loves to do. He has spinned at several events like VERHUISD in Club Manhattan, Arnhem; Sound of Love in Club NL, Amsterdam and Free Your Mind Festival, Arnhem to name but a few.
Christian Alxs spins House… Vocal, soulful, deep, tech. If it’s made with love and passion he will play it.
