DJ

Alex

Alex a.k.a DJ Chaton, has combined since 2001 his love of music with his passion for swing dancing. Ever since he’s been on a quest for good music to dance to, caring little about trends and more about driving the dance floor with quality sounds. And when one bad sounding old gem is found, he is likely to proceed to its audio restoration because it would be a sin to forsake a wonderful piece just because the recording has aged badly !
