In 1990 Arnaud Le Texier started his career as a DJ in the region of Rennes (Bretagne) France. Inspired by the work of artists such as Herbie Hancock, The Orb, Kraftwerk and Pink Flyod, Arnaud began mixing at rave parties alongside various established Djs and later launched the weekly club party Promised Land at L’espace. It was during this period that he met Nova Nova (from the F Communication label) and he collaborated on the maxi single EX EP.

After several years of managing the record shop Club News in Rennes, Arnaud moved to Paris where he managed another well known record shop. It was here that his career as a Dj really began to develop. Performing at the top clubs in Paris and worldwide, Arnaud soon had a residency at Queen that lasted five years, mixing with some of the worlds best DJs and the best clubs in Paris(1995/2000). During this period Arnaud also did many mixes for Radio FG, one of French leading electronic music stations, including a special broadcast. As well as touring all over France for many sponsored parties, Arnaud Le Texier also performed internationally in countries such as Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Canada, USA etc. At the end of the year 2000 he played in Miami alongside British DJ James Warren and the two artists decided to launch the UK based labels; Atcha Recordings, which experimented with Deep House and Trip- Hop, and kailash Records which explored Tech-House, Break beat, Techno and Electro sounds.

Through his focus on music quality and originality, as well as his performances on a international level, Arnaud Le Texier is becoming one of the leaders in French electronic sound. In early 2004 Arnaud and James launched Safari Electronique, which concentrates on more experimental and minimal sounds.

At the beginning of 2006 Arnaud decided to live in London where he plays in various clubs & parties, especially at Fabric, regularly in room 1 sharing the booth with names like Craig Richards, Mandy, Mathew Johnson, Claude Von Stroke and Ricardo Villalobos among others.
Arnaud is perfect blend of natural talent and raw flare with very distinctive music, still versatile and with a wide range of styles.
