Born USSR Label: www.boshkebeats.com www.facebook.com/djalextolstey Where do you live now? Just moved back to Benicassim, Spain from Panama City in Panama Republic where I resided for the last 5 years. When did you first want to be a dj? 1987, I was 10 years old and I played my first dj set in my schoolâ€™s disco. What music were you into then? Mainly heavy metal, pop, disco and early electro-break-dance. I discovered Electronic Music pretty late attending an ACID party while living at that time in Israel it was in â€˜94. Has music always been a part of your life? Always was, is and will be, music is what moves me and guides me in everything I do. When did you set up Boshke Beats Records? In 2001. I decided to start with a plan of my own, had a vision of some special styles blend and it happened. Now we have a small but efficient and enthusiastic team of an amazing artists and djs. What has happened since then? I have defined Boshke sound, played some amazing parties and traveled the world with some incredible music and experiences, gained many fans, followers and supporters and had chance to meet and work with some of the most influential people in the genre.
What countries you enjoyed to play most? Well difficult question, but still my all times favorite is Japan, I played all over the country in many different cities on all kinds and dimensions of parties for many times, got very familiar with Japanese culture and simply felled in love with the country. Also enjoyed a lot to play in Brazil, one of the warmest and openminded crowds I ever played for! The recent discovery was Chile!, Panama- Archipelago festival, small party in the jungle on the island 350 miles away form the mainlandâ€Śit was nice!. I love it all you know, Israel, Austria, Panama recently, but the best gig was the one at BOOM festival 2012 in Portugal on their alternative Alchemy Circle stage, played just after Extrawelt live at those early morning hours, the sunrise, the dance floor energy and so many happy faces ripping the air with their hands, this full moon reflection in the lake in front of me and the rising sun behind meâ€Ś- it was a pure magic! Describe your sound now? Lysergic, offshore, raw, deep, spy techno, dirty house and vintage electronics no styles and definitions, a music that works just as well at peak times in large clubs as it does in the after hours in open air spaces, massive festivals or small private housepool events. What does the future hold? Continuing to play records at some of the best parties around, releasing the best music on Boshke Beats and its sub label Horns and Hoofs, working on Triangle Eyes projectâ€Śand enjoying life with a big Boshke smile!
