In our Road2Release series, we publish four stories that have inspired the artist in his creative & artistic process leading up to his upcoming release on KROOKS Records.

Having to stop percussion lessons, because of a lack of musical schools where I moved, prompted me to find my own path. I had my djembe at home, but nobody to play with. And because this was where I had the most fun, either way, I persisted and found a new way.

I had the chance to start my first tracks on a PlayStation with Music 2000 which sort of filled the gap of having no-one the play with. This was a small revolution since software for music production was pretty expensive at the time. After two years of creating house and techno tracks, I decided to buy Korg Electribe ESX-1 sequencer that allowed me to express myself more.

My first tracks on this machine were varied, but as a rule, the rhythms were created to make you dance. I practised various styles, such as hip hop and Drum ‘n Bass. After that, I sold my PlayStation to invest in a computer and a DAW to find the true infinite possibilities of musical creation.

Alaix Pulse – Ondula EP will be released digitally on all platforms on August 14.
