This month we are proud to present on Dora Records radio show one of the strongest new talents of the portuguese techno scene.
Is our guest in April on Tunnel FM Re:Axis.
Here is part of his history:
José Diogo Correia was born in the North of Portugal in 1984.
Music has always been innate to him and he started by learning to play musical instruments such as classic Piano and acoustic Guitar at the age of 6 years old.
Taken by the desire to create something unique, he shared knowledge with professional musicians and studied Piano, harmony and improvisation at the Jazz School of Oporto, having later completed his education studying Engineering and Sound Design in Lisbon, where he had the possibility to work with hardware and software.
Inspired by contemporary artists and looking for a musical philosophy of self-identity, he became a professional musician in 2005.
After other experiences in electronic music projects, in-band and solo performances, along with his friend Hélder Vasconcelos, who shared the same desire for music production and its various segments, they began the Re:Axis project in 2006, well characterized by a progressive rhythmic component of deep and surrounding atmospheres.
Between 2007 and 2010 they release original tracks and remixes on various labels such as Autist (DE), Piso Records (UK), FVF Records (IRL), Resopal Schallware (DE), Soniculture (PT), Sk Supreme (AI), Sleaze Records (UK), Lazerslut (DE) and Eminor (DE), as well as the release of their debut album by their own record label, Monocline Records, founded in 2008.
In 2010, José Diogo Correia became the only member of the Re:Axis project, as well as the owner of Monocline Records.
Later this year, he created two alter-egos, F-Lux and Joseph Chain, both with a distinct language, from minimal to techno, without ever losing the essence and concept of music creation.
Along in this journey, José has been supported by intermacional DJs and Producers worldwide such as Richie Hawtin, Steve Lawler, Maetrik, Fabrizio Maurizi, Misc, Patrick Bateman, Dubfire, among with many others. Re:Axis has also been remixing for artists like Billy Dalessandro, Miro Pajic, MRI, Pablo Denegri, D Seismal, Psyk, Omar Salgado, Miss Sunshine, Qik, Zentex, and many more.
In the recent years, Re:Axis has also had the pleasure to present his live productions in clubs and festivals like 1001 (London – UK), Opart (Lisbon – PT), Gare (Oporto – PT), Indústria (Oporto – PT), Vademecum (Vigo – ES), Plux (Hamburg – DE), Golden Gate (Berlin – DE), K -Pax (Berlin – DE), Lux (Lisbon – PT), Space (Lisbon – PT), Europa (Lisbon – PT), Fresh Weekend (Corunha – ES), Funkenflug (Rostock – DE), Boom Festival (Idanha-a-Nova – PT), NeoPop Music Festival (Viana do Castelo – PT), Teatro Sá da Bandeira (Oporto – PT), and many others.
In 2010 he also released the “Into The Light” EP and a vinyl of original tracks on Tonkind Records (Berlin), as well as his first LP as F-Lux, “Welcome Change” by Monocline Records.
At the end of 2011, José Diogo Correia is currently producing an EP for Qilla Records to present his first East Tour, Indian Tour.
At this time, he’s involved in various artistic projects. He is living a rich and productive period of creation with all the energy, experience and maturity acquired over the past years, working to make his sound more coherent and solid.
He also launched a new challenge to all Monocline artists, to create a project together.
