About Alex Gopher
Over the course of his career, which began with fellow French cohorts Air at age 15, Gopher has been one of France’s most in-demand remixers, DJs and producers, releasing albums and EPs on his own labels, Solid and Go 4 Music, as well as on Kitsune and BTK, while collaborating with the likes of Jamiroquai, Vanessa Paradis, Mr Oizo, Nightmares On Wax, Roy Davis Jr, Sly & Robbie, Zazie, Bob Sinclar, and Bootsy Collins.
His mischievous house production work with Etienne de Crecy as Super Discount, led to one of the French Touch movement’s cornerstone releases, the ‘Super Discount’ LP in 1996. Gopher’s subsequent solo LP “You, My Baby and I”, released in 1997, also became a key album in the French Touch and was followed by Gopher’s anthem ‘The Child’ in 1999.
Gopher was recruited by designer Yves Saint Laurent in 2000 to produce tracks for his upcoming runway show in Paris. Gopher delivered ten tracks for the runway, before working with French underground artist Demon to reshape the tracks for an album they dubbed ‘Wuz’. A critical hit in France and beyond, this darker atmospheric album shows Gopher’s more brooding sensibilities.
Gopher and de Crecy reformed Super Discount 2 in 2004, touring the world and performing live at the biggest electro, rock and dance music festivals and clubs, while their track “Someone Like You”, featuring Camille on vocals, became an international hit.
Gopher is an exceptional instrumentalist, and Air recruited him to play bass on their debut album ‘Premier Symptomes’. He further demonstrated his talents in this realm on his 2007 self titled LP, which combined New Wave accents and electro influences and featured Gopher on vocals, as well as playing guitar, drums and piano.
