Dax J, a DJ and producer based in Berlin, was confirmed by Lux Frágil’s organization on 28 February, at dawn from Thursday to Friday. This is a debut at the Lisbon’s venue, a city where he has already played once, at Ministerium Club. In Portugal Dax has performed also at Gare Porto and Neopop Music Festival. Dexter, resident of the Lisbon’s nightclub, will play the warm-up.
Dax J, born in London, has soon developed his abilities for mixing. With 15, at the turn of the century, influenced from British jungle, drum n ‘bass and garage, he began his DJ career, working mostly with pirate radios. At the same time, he began his extensive collection of vinyl records.
From 2015, year of the release of his first studio album, “Shades of Black,” Dax began to gain prominence in the British underground scene, when his tracks were played by consecrated ones like Dave Clarke or Ben Klock in their sets for the BBC Radio, the BBC’s Essential Mix. In addition, Ben Klock won the Essential Mix of the Year 2015 with the ‘help’ of Dax’s music. The following year, he was nominated by Mixmax, Groove Magazin and DJ Mag in the category of “Best Breakthrough DJ”.
We can expect a techno set, like Klock’s style, at a frenetic pace, and full of obscure and onimous elements, which, according to him, aim to reflect political activism, paranoia and his past in underground raves.
The tickets for the event should be available in the day of the gig, at the door.
