LEX From Russia
This is what happens when you grow up on electronic music from birth. The mathematically calculated beats flow in your veins, the distorted bass becomes your second identity, and the beautiful digital melodies start to feel like your soul. Nothing new to L3x, because it is about him.
L3x (read as Lex), also known as Alexey Kishko, has been listening to electronic music pioneers of 90s on cassette tapes since he could speak (which he needed to exchange mixtapes with peers). Breakbeat and what was dubbed « rave » at the time became the best friends of L3x, and music has been devotedly escorting him through life. At 11 he finished music school with excellence, and already at 14 he didn’t miss a single important club event at his hometown.
From dancefloor to decks – 2006 was the year L3x’ musical nature materialized in DJing. Rapidly gaining experience and popularity while experimenting with music styles, Alexey clearly defined Breaks and Dubstep as his genres of choice. He has played literally every venue in the town and no big event with a broken beat theme would happen without L3x’ performance. His mixes have been played on numerous European, American and Russian radios (both FM and Internet), and developing the DJ skills led him to becoming a teacher of a DJing course at Kaliningrad’s XSSR Music Academy (founded by a recognized breaks and dubstep producer Mars). L3x is a resident and organizer of a regular dubstep events « XSSR Nights » and “Drop the Bass”.
Never going to content himself with DJing, L3x began mastering the production skills. 2011 saw L3x signing his first contracts with prominent dubstep labels, and in Autumn his remix of Nick Carter’s « Love Can’t Wait » won Listener’s Award in a contest by Indaba Music. 2012 will be big for L3x, who is working on new tunes, unexpected collabs and sick DJ sets. Labels: Bass Reflections, Play Nasty, Subtribe and etc.
