Alex was also long-time collaborator for the magazine Vibrations, writing reviews and compiling their series of albums. By 1995, he was ready to break into Electronic music production, contributing a track to the "5 Star Galaxy" compilation in the company of producer Patrick "Rollercone" Duvoisin. The following year he set up the Bel - Air Project, and began attracting attention with their first release "Magik", which was featured on one of the famous Sourcelab compilations. Bel-Air Project's next two releases became minor underground cult classics "Jazz with Altitude" and "Dark Jazzor" were both championed by the likes of 4 Hero, Gilles Peterson and Stacey Pullen. At the same time, Alex also set up his own record label Corn-Flex and was busy collaborating under different guises, with Paul Martin as Beatless and with his Bel-Air colleague as Funkanova. 1997 saw the demise of the Bel-Air Project and Alex moved to England to pursue new musical projects.
