Alex from Tokyo
(Tokyo Black Star, world famous NYC)

Paris born, Tokyo raised international eclectic french DJ, producer and international co-ordinator.

Having lived in Tokyo more than 20 years since he was a kid, he has developed into one of the strongest crossover DJ’s in Tokyo and also became a key person connecting the world and Japan (F Communications Japan representative, Mr.Bongo/Disorient Japan, Yellow Productions/Bossa Tres Jazz project co-ordinator etc.).

Now based in New York from 2004. Alex has been playing regularly all around the world in Tokyo, Asia, New York and Europe. Alex still travels back to Tokyo every 2 months to continue his 11 year residency at the Sunday afternoon party “Gallery”, his Timewarp party, and his weekly radio show “Tokyo Club Mix Showcase” every Wednesday on Shibuya FM78.4Mhz, now running for 12 years. September 2006 saw the Japanese release of Laurent Garnier’s book “Electrochoc”, which Alex translated from French to Japanese. In NYC he regularly plays these days in downtown venues like Cielo, Santos Party House, nublu and submercer.

Alex has been also active producing music under the name Tokyo Black Star with his partner Isao Kumano, releasing original material on the Berlin based label Innervisions, as well as on the joint label Reincarnation by italian tastemakers Slam Jam, and on DJ Deep’s deeply rooted house music records label. Tokyo Black Star have done remixes for labels such as Flower Records, Yellow Productions, Frikyiwa, Bassmental, Disorient, with recent remixes as Kuniyuki “Birds” (mule musiq), nublu orchestra “Sketches of NY” (nublu), Bing Ji ling “Home” (Lovemonk) and Master H and Greg Oreck “Coffee is ecstasy” (komplex de deep). Tokyo Black Star collaborated in summer 2008 on the german Great Stuff’s label “Summer Games” Olympic compilation with the track “Japan”.

Besides the club scene, Alex has been recently doing also some music co-ordination, consulting and production work in fashion for brands like Y-3 and Louis Vuitton, and he has been invited to play at the official party of the world famous art fair ART BASEL in June 2007. Alex released in February 2008 his 5th mix CD in Japan for the DJ mix series “mi mix” on the Octave Lab label in Japan. In February 2009, Reincarnation released the official label mix CD “Dj Alex from Tokyo presents “Reincarnation” -The Flashback mix-“!
