Akki had been djing by himself since 2003, however, but gigs were few and far between. Karsten tried his hand at it starting 2006 and, thankfully, could not get enough. Both continued to work on their own but soon realized that this was not the way to go. So they decided, almost casually, to start standing together behind the turntables, players and mixing equipment.
Karsten's stage name was arrived at while working together on his VW Golf's sound system. While they were both holding a piece of plexiglass they discussed Karsten's stage name and after a while arrived at the name >> PLECS <<.
After they decided to start djing together, the question of coming up with a name was raised again. This time the topic of plexiglass came up again and the following idea was born - take PLEX and add the English "US" at the end and make it stand out with an extra "X" - >> P L E X X U S <<. Its not the best ever origin story but its the truth :-)
The first few gigs were in rural clubs. In 2008 PLEXXUS celebrated their founding with their fans and a whole night of electro dance music. And so, the ELEnight was born and takes place every year.
In 2009, PLEXXUS took part in the DJ contest of the "House of Summer" festival and got in at 5th place out of 19 participants.
PLEXXUS took part in a DJ marathon and played several gigs successfully.The highlight for that year was participation in the "Vibra DJ Award 2011", which was not only a lot of fun but allowed them to get lots of feedback from a team of jurors. PLEXXUS finished a strong second.
Their own tracks:
Not only does PLEXXUS show their skill at the turntables but also in producing music. Several tracks have been produced which have already gotten some play in clubs. To promote these tracks to the world the label "1st Shoot Music" was established and the tracks were distributed online and can now be downloaded from online stores such as iTunes, amazon, DJShop, Deezer, Juno and others.
The first single "JUMPING ROBOTS" was released on January 14th, 2013. As the first people have started to download it, the feedback has been amazing. Additional tracks will follow in March, 2013, with main goal of releasing an album at some point.
