Anton X has a glint in his eye. A sparkle. And if you look more closely, you can even see a star. A bright star with electronic vibrations. A rising star that shines when he mixes.
In 1993, when only 14 and attending his first ever rave party in the French city of Lyons, this young man was bowled over by the electronic musical wave that has changed his life. He quickly began to scour parties, clinching his first residency at the tender age of 16.
Loathe to compromise and keen to retain his freedom, in 1999 Anton X decided to create Millennium Sound with a group of friends. It was a way of being able to work as a DJ with no constraints.
In the same year, he won the Gladiator DJ Contest organised by Independance Records. And in 2002, the jury of the DMC/Pioneer Electronic DJ of the Year Contest selected him as one of the top 25 Electro DJ’s.
But at the start of the third millennium, being a good DJ is not enough. So Anton X tried his hand at producing and was immediately smitten with this new universe.
2004 saw the release of his first opus, Travel EP, with UMF records. He also entered the UK’s Massive Buzz DJ Chart, and was extensively play-listed, particularly by Laurent Garnier, BBC Radio 1… and many more. The track Cancún was also licensed by the well-known London label, the Ministry of Sound.
In 2006, the release of Lowis EP on the best-selling Recycled Loops label confirmed his potential. According to Valentino Kanzyani or Carl Cox, his maxi, complete with Electro strains of the 80s, is “an instant hit made for the dance floors”.
In November 2007, Anton X is offering us new electronic flavours in its last EP, « Slow Food EP» (UMF/DISCOGRAPH)... to devour without moderation!
Anton X plays with all the nuances of the musical spectrum spanned by his technophile galaxy. Minimal, Detroit, Electro, Techno… can all describe his sets. He likes to break free from the constrains of style barrier, preferring to trust his instinct rather than simply follow fashion. His sounds are eclectic and powerful, freeing minds as he generously mixes.
His language is a universal language everyone can understand : the language of the senses.
Anton X is no fleeting shooting star; he is a smiling ray of sun, capable of lighting up everyone he touches : Rex Club (Paris), Zouk (Kuala Lumpur), Parking (Montreal), Rachdingue (Spain), Universal Dog (Germany), Mad (Switzerland), Fleda (Checz Republic), Papillon Club (Indonesia), Marines Club (Thailand), Free Bass (Mauritius), Le Bus (Madagascar), H2O club (Belgium)...
Reference magazines like TRAX and Only for DJ’s are in no doubt, regarding this talented young DJ and producer as the new revelation from Lyons. He has yet to reach his zenith but has already earned his place in the firmament. So get ready for a dazzling musical voyage - you will be sailing under a very lucky star.
