Featured DJ Chart: Alex Gopher

Alex Gopher has been making fun, unpretentious electro for more than a decade now, part of a vintage crop of French producers that included Daft Punk, Cassius, Etienne De Crecy and Air. Not one to rest on his laurels, he’s just released a compilation of his newest remixes, which is soon to be followed by a new EP due out this month on his Go4Music imprint. We hunted the Gopher down to find out what’s been lurking inside that record bag of his…

1. Pablo Decoder & Tim Healey – Echoes In My Head (Pablo’s Rough Mix) (Go 4 Music)

“I have been playing this track since a few months now, but it will be released in a few days. When techno meets punk, it makes pure nasty dance music”

2. Etienne de Crecy feat. The Bloody Beetroots  – Welcome (Pixadelic)

“The guys from Italy did more than a remix on this track. As usual, they did something different, unique, that nobody else can do. Defintely should be used for commercials, a pure 2010 sound.”

3. Boys Noize /Erol Alkan – Lemonade (Phantasy)

“A simple track. But simple good music is the hardest to do.”

4. Blake – What I Like (Knuckles Insomniac remix) (Eclectic)

“Knuckles is changing his name to Sovngaer. But the guy is already over-talented, whatever his name is.”

5. Hiroki Esashika – Kazane (Disco Of Doom remix) (Tasted)

“I have followed Disco Of Doom for a long time, and I’m never disappointed by his productions. This one is a winner again.”

6. Alex Gopher & Etienne De Crecy & Air – Ash Sync (Alex Gopher & Etienne De Crecy version) (Go 4 Music)

“A track we did with old friends. I’m happy because we were able to put all our own musical universes and directions in one track.”

7. Dada Life – Happy Hands & Happy Feet (Alex Gopher remix) (Go 4 Music)

“These guys are putting some fun in electronic music, all their tracks are like a pungent and sweet soda.”

8. 25 Hours a Day – In The City (BTK)

“It’s an old track, but 25HAD is an amazing musician & producer. That’s the reason why we are working on a album together…But it will be much quieter than this one.”

9. Monsieur J0 – Unbelievable (BTK)

“Again an old track, but it was and is so ‘Avant-Garde’.”

10. Alex Gopher – Handguns (Dada Life remix) (Go 4 Music)

One of my own tracks to finish, but a remix which burns the dance-floors all over the world.
