Alex Attias is a renowned international DJ. Starting off in 1988, with pulsating sets embracing House, Funk and Disco classics, he later progressed on to the “Eclectic Jazz thing”. Throughout the late 80`s and early 90`s, he established himself as one of Switzerland’s top DJ’s running his own successful weekly nights (i.e. COOP sessions at Plastic People, London), being booked to play all over Europe.

By 1995, he was ready to break into Electronic music production, contributing a track to the “5 Star Galaxy” compilation in the company of producer Patrick “Rollercone” Duvoisin. The following year he set up the Bel-Air Project, and began attracting attention with the first release “Magik”, which was featured on one of the famous Sourcelab compilations. Bel-Air Project`s next two releases became minor underground cult classics, “Jazz with Altitude” and “Dark Jazzor” were both championed by the likes of 4 Hero, Gilles Peterson and Stacey Pullen. At that time, Alex set up his own record stable label Corn-Flex and was busy collaborating under different disguises, with Paul Martin as Beatless and with his Bel-Air colleague as Funkanova.

1997 saw the demise of the Bel-Air Project and Alex moved to England to pursue new musical projects. Mustang and Beatless are currently the main sources of his creative output (plus a few sporadic collaborations: River Plate with his brother Stephane, and Plutonia with Dego from 4 Hero).

Three years down the row Alex set up his new record label, Visions Inc., for which he’s been busy recording with super keyboard whiz kid Jessica Lauren, producing tracks for soul singer Vanessa Freeman, and his own Mustang project.

The first brilliant Beatless album “Life Mirrors” was released in 2001 on the American label Ubiquity. Around the same time, Irma Records from Italy released his “Quiet Moments” compilation, an assortment of chilled and spaced Jazz tracks from the past to unwind to.

A selection of Visions single releases and exclusives have been released September 2002 on a compilation entitled “The Chromatic Universe”. He’s also created a soundtrack for ARTE to accompany “Anomalies Passageres “, a film directed by Nadia Fares.

Alex Attias now presents his first Mustang full length project entitled “Back Home” on Compost featuring the likes of Vanessa Freeman, Colonel Red, Jessica Lauren and others. More bizzyness is on its way.
