Alexandre Mouracade's roots in the Los Angeles music scene span the better part of two decades not only as a DJ but as the founder of the globally hyped party, Making Shapes and more recently as a charting producer under the moniker, SONNS and Split Secs with Travis Kirschbaum. Mouracade's roots reach as far back as the Southern California punk scene that gave rise to an equally as rich underground club world in the 90s. As a record selector, he's shared space with talent reaching as far back as his days holding a residency with his eclectic opening & closing sets for the World Famous Beat Junkies and more recently traversing the techno, house, disco and left-field landscapes with Mark E, Simian Mobile Disco, Ivan Smagghe and Eddie C.
In 2012, Split Secs landed on various charts and track listings when the duo's first EP "I'm Not Losin'" (Jolly Jams) earned heavy rotation worldwide. The warm and relatable analog feel carried over to Mouracade's solo effort, SONNS with his debut track, 'On My Mind' moving feet and played globally by heavyweights, Matt Walsh, The Hacker, Cosmo Vitelli and many more.
As Mouracade's reputation continues to earn attention, label owners like James Friedman of Throne of Blood have tapped him for incendiary, genre-bending remix work for Waze and Odyssey. In addition to owning and operating the Machine Limited label with Kirschbaum, Mouracade is not only staking claim for himself as one to watch but giving Los Angeles the attention it deserves as a bastion for dance music.
