Of Turkish origins but born and raised just outside of Zurich, Alci’s entry into DJing came via Hip Hop and street culture, trying his hand at graffiti and breakdancing before discovering turntables. Igniting his passion for music, his taste has evolved over the years, shifting into the electronic world where he now places his sound between funky House grooves and minimalistic Techno.
At the age of 17 he was already on the Zurich circuit and today is called upon to play for the likes of MDRNTY, one of Switzerland’s most important and unique electronic events. He also holds down a residency at Zurich’s Sunday Breakfast party, is a regular player at Zukunft and has featured on the bill for Rex Club Paris, tINI and the Gang and Fuse London parties.
In 2013 he released on Phil Week’s lauded Robsoul Recordings, and by the end of the year he had followed up the EP with a 3-part ‘Early Beginnings’ series for the imprint. Other labels quickly took interest, leading Alci to put out music on Be As One (Shlomi Aber) and Infuse, the sub-label from Fuse London. A self-professed vintage head, when it comes to his own productions he’s keen to strike the balance between analogue gear and new technology, also playing both vinyl and digital formats.
The future is looking highly promising then for the young artist, who can count the Apollonia boys amongst his fans, having compiled his productions in both their ENTER and Mixmag compilations this year, and has confirmed future releases coming soon on Robsoul and the Sunday Breakfast imprint.
