It all started when Lexa was a little prick.
Music was everywhere, so it was something that could be created with any piece of equipment that came on his path. One day, when his mother had enough of all the broken and smashed things in the house, she bought him that well known Casio.
Ever since that day there was chemistry between Lexa and electronic music.
A few years later as the first computer came inside the house, he collected his first software and soundsamples. The addiction became complete and the passion grew more and more. From that time on every little bit of spare time was used on making music.
Dj Lexa started mixing back in 1996 when he stated working for a local radio station near Amsterdam. The idea was clear: take his creations out to the right audience. Just like many dj's in that time his career started with mixing Hardcore. His first gig was in Zaandam in the legendary Hemkade. But since they didn't needed anymore dj's that night, he was asked to host the stage as MC. And so that new experience became another great skill. ;A few years passed by and Hardcore faded back to the underground. After hours of searching for a new sound he stumbled over something completely different, yet it was there already for some time; A new love was born, Techno. From 1999 to 2002 he was a resident in a club near Amsterdam and mainly played Techno. Then one day the owner of the club wanted a new sound, more soulfull so that the club could serve a wider audience. From that moment on the first glimpse would appear of what his style is today. A mix-up between Techno, House, Latin and Tribal with a little topping of Trance and Progressive made many crowds go wild through whole the nights and he became a well known name in the local club scene. After the club closed down he played at different clubs like De Waakzaamheid, Lexion, Hemkade and Club Line-Up. It didn't took long before the first gig outside the Dutch borders became a fact. With the E-Lake Festival (Luxembourg) he played his first big festival with a crowd of 15000 people. A few years later he played at Club Inigo in London for the Dutch based label DjTrx, where he was signed. Together with names like Isis, Don Diablo and Smashing Sebastian he made it a night to be remembered. Just when 2007 was almost done, he became resident in the Amsterdam based Club Chi. This happened on a 2 week schedule. Unfortunately that didn't last for long due to a close down of the club early 2008. Still, there would not be silence around this dj. In 2008 he joined BPM Productions which threw gigs at Club Organza. After a few parties in Organza the people at BPM ;asked him to play on their Pure! Gold truck at the Fit For Free Dance Parade. With a 750.000+ crowd partying, this was the largest event to play on for now. After that Lexa decided to slow down a little to focus more on producing again.
Today Dj Lexa runs his own label: Re:Lex Music.
Releasing tracks world wide and with more succes each new release. The future is the place to be for Lexa.
With a full clip on inspiration for both producing and mixing, things are going to be wild. With always expecting the best of himself, to get creativity rolling and the audience rocking!
