Leisure Dub – Weekend Waiting


Out 18th June 2021 on 7″/Digital on Bandcamp

Leisure Dub is a new collaboration from Alex Storrer (Lexx) and Paul Byrne (Apiento) and features a floating roster of friends and collaborators. The first release from the project is ‘Weekend Waiting’ featuring Armanious consisting of Kat on vocals and Simo on guitar. Armanious are forward thinking r&b heads based in London. The track pulls on a modern r&b side on the a side and references 90s jeep beat on the flip. Wind the windows down and play it loud.

LX72 “Pl’ayers/Rooty Call” Remixes

Out June 4th on 7″/Digital on Bandcamp

Two remixes off LX72‘s full-length album “New Affinity“. Lexx took it upon himself to make “Pl‘ayers“ sound like Slum Village had a park BBQ with Roy Ayers, a worthy update! “Rooty Call“ received a late night remix treatment by up and coming Melbourne producer Midnight Tenderness.

Bon Voyage Mix

I had the great pleasure to make a contribution to the Idlecellars mix series, curated by non other than Skyrager aka Danny McLewin of Psychemagik.  One and a half hours of soft rock, soul jazz and smoky folk gems. Tune in, bliss out et Bon voyage!


Better Days Mix

If you are into 90’s R’n’B with a Hip Hop twist, tune in to “Brighter Days” a mix i made for the good folks over Schoenstaub.



Mystic Blue Ripples Mix

“Mystic Blue Ripples“ – Echoes of an old love. A mix of blue soft psych and folky 60‘s tunes. Now up on Soundcloud.


New Affinity

“New Affinity” is out now on Bandcamp (Digital/Vinyl) and available on all other platforms Friday, October 10th.

New Affinity, Lexx’s latest offering, is a unique blend of soulful sounds, riding the blurred line between House and Hip-Hop. He is skillfully pairing organic grooves with suave electronic sounds, showing off, in a subtle kind of way if you want, his vast knowledge in the art of sampling.

Joyous, deep and full of spirit and life.

Perfect soundscape for portable devices on public transport, late night car rides and for your listening pleasure at home, on limited edition vinyl.

One Blood – Be Thankful

One Blood – Be Thankful including my version,  out now on 12″ Vinyl/Digital.

Formed in 1979 One Blood was made up of the 5 Robinson brothers – Errol, Jerry, Lloyd, Trevor and Paul –and recording at the legendary TMC studios, went on to release two albums and countless singles.

Be Thankful pays homage to DeVaughn’s original, with smooth vocals gliding atop tight drum and bass, vocal jumping up dub pom acapella to summer perfection. The tapes here passed to cohort Lexx, crafting a wonderful discodub that is all groove, expertly cutting back and forth…diamonds in the back, sunroof top.

Pablo Color – Los Claveles 36 Remix

Pablo Color “Los Claveles 36″ including my remix,  is out now on 7” Vinyl /Digital.


New Releases on Lexx Music

After the first LX72 release (with help from Kejeblos),  i decided to continue releasing new music on my own and turn Lexx Music into a proper label. I’m happy to present the follow up releases, LX72 Remixed and Bocab’s debut 12″ “Preach On Sunday”.  Both are limited to 200 (inkl. obi) and are now available via Bandcamp, Hum Records and Sihl Records. Available at international stores in about three weeks from now.

LX72 – Remixed (LXMZK02)

Lexx (under his LX72 moniker) got his mates Gerd Janson and Lauer on board to remix the “State Of Resilience“ EP which hit shores earlier this year. Lauer takes the looney marine mammal straight to the disco-tek to present one of his trademark piano tricks. The crowd has no choice but to throw their hands up in the air and reach for la luna in the night sky. On the flip, Gerd Jansonʼs 808 Remix gives State Of Resilience a classy electro make over as he flexes his muscle on the rhythm composer rules the dance floors for close to fourty years.

BOCAB – Preach On Sunday/Can I Get…Ahhm (LXMZK03)

Bocab is a Zurich based producer who loves his beats raw and uncut.
The A side “Preach On Sunday“ is a hypnotic sermon that provides redemption on the dancefloor for all those who can follow itʼs lead. On side B we find Lexx favorite “Can I Get…Ahhm“. A back breaking piano bounce goes into overdrive after two minutes. Heavy echoes of the beatdown sound of the Motor City. The tune gives an unmistakable indication of the producers hip hop roots. Turn it up!

The 3 Pieces – Iwishcan Williams Remix

Washington collective, The 3 Pieces, privately-pressed Iwishcan William on their own DL Records in 1982. The 12 has Discogs, for one, confused. Is it soul, rap, jazz, go-go, funk, electro, or educational? By nature of its birthplace and date of birth, it`s all of those.

Synths shimmer in harp-like glissando. The bass grumbles, rumbles, machine-made. The beat pops and locks. The whole thing grooving and exuding positivity. One part the cosmic funk of say Cloud One`s Patty Duke. Another, the balearic chug of Will Powers` Adventures In Success. Like Brother D it looks to “agitate, educate, and organize”, and stirs in the sentiments of Razzy`s I Hate Hate. Imagine if the Last Poets jammed with sister Sarah Webster Fabio. Keys parp like car horns, a real trumpet blows a Don Cherry solo, but the track really revolves around its sweet Sesame Street call-and-response chorus:

“I wish love. I can love. I will love. I am love.”

Swiss gentleman Lexx, produces a killer remix – smoothing out the OG`s jerky edges, upping its sophistication. Making clear the contributions of Lexx` new bubbling electronics. rescuing a clipped guitar, previously lost deep in the mix, and moving the children’s voices to the fore. Ensuring you’ll remember that

The Gagosians – Run For My Honey

The Gagosians – Run For My Honey is a retrofuturistic 4-minute Rock’N’Roll Drama written by Suzana Rozkosny (Vocals), A.C. Kupper (Guitar), Kay-Zee (Synths). The sound is machine driven and dark; surrounded by narcotic synths and deformed blues guitars. Lexx and Kejeblos on remix duties on the flipside. Have mercy!

Out: January 2019 on Phantom Island

Ryuichi Sakamoto – Coda


Inspiring. Go see it if you have a chance.

One of the most important artists of our era, Ryuichi Sakamoto has had a prolific career spanning over four decades. From techno-pop stardom to Oscar-winning film composer, the evolution of his music has coincided with his life journeys. Following Fukushima, Sakamoto became an iconic figure in Japan’s social movement against nuclear power. As Sakamoto returns to music following a cancer diagnosis, his haunting awareness of life crises leads to a resounding new masterpiece. RYUICHI SAKAMOTO: CODA is an intimate portrait of both the artist and the man.


30 Minutes Of Peace No.1

30 minutes of music to soothe your soul, calm your nerves and create a relaxed atmosphere.


Freedom From The Known

“When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.

Jiddu Krishnamurti, [Freedom From the Known, Chapter 6]
