INFLUENCES: SONNS

As he prepares to drop a new EP on Kompakt...

For a long time SONNS operated beneath the surface of electronic music, organising parties and establishing a consistent presence amidst the Los Angeles underground. Alexandre Mouracade has been a disc jockey for some two decades now having launched the "Making Shapes" party, he has since made himself known on the international circuit releasing music both independently as SONNS and as part of the duo Split Secs alongside Travis Kirschbaum.
