Today’s Track of the Day, off Alexkid’s 2003 release Mint, brings a little bounce and a lot of feel-good to the table. Born in France and weened on the Parisian club scene, Alexkid began his diverse production career in 1999, with his debut single “Playground” put out by French House father figure Laurent Garnier. Between 2001 and 2006 Alexkid put out 3 wildly differing releases, Bienvenido, Mint and Caracol, on Garnier’s F Communications label.
If you find yourself in Europe, try and catch one of Alexkid’s sets at Berlin’s Watergate nightclub, where he’s the DJ in residence. If you dig this style, check out his label mates from F Commuications, Mr. Oizo and St. Germain, as well as Dominik Eulberg for deeper stuff and Ellen Allien for the electro kicks.
