“From The Dirty South… Of France”, Anaxander was first introduced to the scene with music such as ABMusic/NewBeat, UK and Belgium Rave and to the huge UK and US Acid, House and Techno movement in the late 80’s. Anaxander influences come from various artist styles from the like of Crash Course In Science to Juan Atkins, Depeche Mode, Funkadelic and Chopin.
Over the years, he has been at times songwriter, vocalist, keyboardist and machinist to several alternative bands. The years 1994-2006 saw Anaxander actively DJ at festivals and rooms big and small. With an eye always on the public, his tension filled sets keep the dancefloor on an edge by mixing the dark with the cheeky, deep and the ghetto, with a personal preference for a dirtier sound over a clean arrangement. Since 2011, Anaxander has focused on producing dance music – drawing inspirations from world news, astrology, sciences, life experiences and the people close to him, tweaking synths, jamming both on his machines and with his friends on a daily basis.
Only using hardware set up as weapons, his productions make you feel the rawness and dirtiness of saturated analog gears, Anaxander’s foremost approach is still about having fun.
His quality and wax-only output as Anaxander marks him as a musical chameleon you’ll be lucky to catch. He also produces some music under many monikers – you got the find them out, including his new project, John Red Hawk.
