At the turn of the millennium was when Ahmed Raxon found electronic music and since then has never looked back. Born and raised in Abu Dhabi and of Egyptian decent, Raxon later moved to Dubai to attend university, which is where he began DJing in 2005. His keen ear for blending genres of deep, house, progressive and tech house started to get noticed at countless house parties which later lead to gigs in some of the Dubai’s best night clubs. He later joined forces with the Audio Tonic crew at 360 (one of the top 100 best night clubs in the world as rated by the DJ Mag poll). He has quickly become one of the night’s residents proving he knows what the crowd wants to hear and when they want it here it. His track selection always ignites the fire on the dance floor leaving people wanting more, so week after week people return to 360 to hear more! Having played some of the best parties in the region, including Creamfield’s Abu Dhabi in 2009, he has been able to share the decks and warm up for some of the industry’s best DJ’s including SOS, Jimpster, Luke Fair, Alex Dolby, Spirit Catcher and Jody Wisternoff to name a few.
Immersing himself even further in the music, Raxon began producing and remixing in 2007. Realizing that it’s a totally different science from DJing he has spent countless hours in his studio learning what sounds work ‘at the end of the day, music is just a bunch of sounds that trigger certain feelings in your brain, or at least that’s how I like to think of it.’ Being able to get those sounds mixed like a delicious cocktail has allowed him to have remixes and originals on some of the hottest international labels such as Audio Therapy, Sick Watona, Night Drive Music, Witty Tunes and most recently Discoteca Music. His fan base is continually growing as both a producer and DJ, which was evident by his recent ranking as lucky number 7 in DJ Mag Middle East’s poll for best DJ of 2010.
With a host of production projects and gigs lined up for Dubai, Beirut, Egypt, Ibiza and WMC 2011 we can expect to hear a lot more of RAXON very soon!
