Interview with electronic star Raxon

Raxon returns to Arteq for a 2nd year running, and we know you’re excited fam. He played two of the most mesmerising sets at Arteq turns Three and The Afterparty and having him back is giving us the tingles. The Egyptian born, Barcelona based part human, part robot has released 2 huge EP’s in that short time frame. One on Solomun’s Diynamic Music and one on Michael Mayer’s Kompakt imprint. Both have gained world wide traction, and the year has been busy for Raxon as he plays regular shows throughout Europe. We had no choice, we knew he had to have him play. Let the magic happen.


Raxon, we’re back again. What have you been doing this week?

Looking forward to reunite with you guys again, so much fun last time, great crew :)

Just played Brunch in Barcelona on Sunday, plus a mad afterparty and currently getting ready for Unannounced Vol.2 this Saturday, ive got an insane secret guest, you’ll definitely find out by the time this interview comes out.

You just released some absolute gems on Diynamic and Kompakt respectively and we have some footage of you playing it before release at our birthday last year. How long have you had these tunes under wraps and tell us what this meant to you to release on such iconic labels

Yeah i remember, i was actually still testing them out and they were not officially signed yet to either Diynamic of Kompakt, we will still in talks about them. I'm constantly working on new tracks so some of them might be even a year old and some just a few months, but the point is to make something that will work still sound good later as well.

It means a lot to me ofcourse. Its always a dream goal for any producer in this genre to release with them, it just needs some patience and determination. The patience part is not so easy given the speed of things everything is at now. but trust me, its worth it in the end.

How are the productions looking now? Whats coming up with Raxon the producer?
