A self- professed late bloomer, Axel Groove found his inspiration following 7 years in the wilderness, also known as the concrete jungles of Australia. The underground music scene here reignited his long lost passion to educate the masses with the sexy sounds that is house music.
Once back in Malaysia, he signed up with Excessive Studios where he
honed his skills under the tutelage of legendary Bryan Burger. After a year or so, he ventured out on his own playing at venues such as Zouk,Vertigo, Establishment, Bedroom, Frangipani, Pisco, Marini’s on 57, The Roof, Marquee, Nagaba, and private events like Future Music Festival Asia, Red Bull Music Academy, Glenmorangie, Supermodel Me, Tropfest and Fred Perry Subsonic.
He has played along international luminaries such as Jamie Jones (UK), Hot Since 82 (UK), Eats
Everything (UK), Osunlade (USA), M.A.N.D.Y (DE), Sonny Fodera (AUS), Shiba San (Fra), Yuksek (Fra), Hercules and the Love Affair (US), Wankelmut (DE), Africa Hitech (UK), What So Not (Aus), Haze (UK), Vibe Lime (USA), Ben Souled Tidy (UK) and more. His passion and eclectic taste has also seen him program music for The Big Group venues such as Tate, Beast, Page 2 and Hit & Mrs.
Besides being a DJ, Axel is also a music and festival promoter within the South East Asia region working with the likes of Mos Def, M.A.N.D.Y,Hot Since 82 and the recent 2 day Freqender Music Festival in Singapore.
Taking a wide range of inspiration from the likes of Kerri Chandler all the way to Jamie Jones; Axel Groove incorporates a sexy blend of Disco, House and Deep Tech vibes to feed the soul.
