Lexx R born in Winterthur, lives near Zürich (Switzerland) - since 2012 he also known as Mat Groove.
Lexx started djing 1983. Besides his work in different smaller clubs he toured with a mobile discotheque called "Silverspoon", "Travelling Sounds" and the longest time with "Disco Hurricane" trough Switzerland. These times his DJ name was just "DJ Sandro". In the middle 90s he changed to Lexx (Sandro -&rt; Alexander -&rt; Alex -&rt; Lex -&rt; Lexx ;)
Lexx allways loved funky dance tracks - in the 80s the early funky tunes and later all sorts of house music. Of course he palyed many other styles these days like disco, italo disco, acid, garage, techno, pop, reagga, and soul. In the 90s Lexx got his own radio-show on RTGplus - a local radio station. Beside this he founded and managed a local stage for new talents "Albanibühne".
The late 90s Lexx stopped doing live dj sets and concentrated on his marketing career. Since 2006 he is back. Today he uses mostly digital equipement (but he keeps his analog setup - he still loves his Technics M 1200 MK2 turntables but adores his Pioneer CDJ 2000). Since 2007 Lexx is improving and developing his skills in digital djing - a complete different workflow with a complete new way to manage, edit and perform music using live sampling and looping to rearrange sounds on the flow.
In 2006 Lexx further explored the virtual world of Secondlife, where he founded a new house music community called "Scoutlounge". Secondlife (SL) mades it possible to play LIVE in front of an international crowd and get direct feedback. It was the first time you could use the internet to share your love to music LIVE with direct feedback (even radio cant give you that).
Lexx is now doing a weekly dj set broadcasted live on webradio (scoutlounge.net), webTV (ustream.tv and scoutlounge.net) and is logged into SL club Scoutlounge. Some of these shows are rebroadcasted to other networks like DBC radio&tv, DJnetwork, etc.
What you find here are all live recorded sets with no post production - they are a mix of a radio show and a club set - just listen and join us at http://www.scoutlounge.net. If you are curious about it just contact me! We have allways an open door for new DJs able to do an online-live set with direct guest feedback!
Update 2012: LexxR is doing club sets again! BUT he had to change his DJ name - there are too many DJ Lexx around and one is really famous in Zürich. Lexx turns to "Mat Groove". Mat (or Matthias) is my second name and as all my sounds need to have a special kind of "groove" I decided to use "Mat Groove" as new artist name. A new website http://www.matgroove.ch is coming soon.
