Raxon has fast become known as one of the Middle East’s most respected electronic artists.
The Egyptian, born and raised in the United Arab Emirates, his time spent as a resident Dj for audio tonic in Dubai has exposed him to a wide variation of sound, most importantly the influences of quality dance music!
It’s his upbringing and passion for this music that has driven him to produce his signature sound of driving bass heavy House and Techno, which has been inspired from his 2012 accolade winning the Beatport remix competition for Nick Curly’s ‘Underground’ on Cecille.
Since then, he has released and worked with some of the industry’s most respected imprints and artists including Noir Music, Tronic, Culprit, Sincopat and Moodmusic.
His success in the studio has brought him to the attention of a global audience, with past (and current) gigs for the likes of Creamfields Abu Dhabi, audio tonic Sunset Sessions at 360º (resident), Watergate Berlin, Pacha Ibiza, Café Mambo Ibiza, Off Sonar, ADE, the highly coveted BPM Festival and DGTL Festival Barcelona.
Extenuating his global appeal, Raxon has also appeared twice as a special guest on John Digweed’s Transitions radio show.
Based now in Barcelona, Raxon’s fan base and reputation continue to grow around the world, DJ Mag Middle East have been quick to recognise his efforts by placing him at Number seven in their Top 100 DJ Poll in 2010 and he was voted Best Dubai DJ in 2013 and 2014 by Time Out Dubai.
But this is just the beginning; Raxon has so much more to give.
