Arnaud le Texier
DJ – Producer, label-owner (France)
Arnaud’s career dates back to 1990 when he first began managing record shops and building what is now a huge archive of knowledge, taste and musical dedication to his name. His five years residency at Paris’s Queen and memorable sets around Europe over the years that followed perfected Arnaud’s djing skills, earning him his spot in the worldwide scene where he continues to this day to be a prominent dj and production figure.
In 2000 at a Miami gig, Arnaud met British dj James Warren, the pair shared a vision and love of expressing deep and constructed minimal and techno sounds. The two artists decided to launch the UK based labels: Atcha Recordings and Kailash Records.
5 years later, Safari Electronique was born. Arnaud decided to launch this new label because he wanted something different and where he could sign all styles of electronic music. A label a bit more experimental and personal, which concentrates on techno and minimal sounds, sensuality and dance-floor grooves has since gone on to collaborate with best known and highly respected artists. Safari Electronique made his name by often being the first to discover who was about to become a big talent. This tells a lot about label owner Arnaud Le Texier’s DJ Set. Through his focus on music quality and originality, as well as his performances on an International level, Arnaud Le Texier became one of the leaders in electronic sound.
