Alex had also been making his own mixes for his fashion shows. His first 'official' dj-set on the turntables was played on the 28th of December 1996 in "Aquatoria" club. From then on, Alex would be spotted appearing under the name of DJ Tuke in various Moscow night clubs. After a while, he became resident-DJ of the legendary "Substation" underground radio station, being remembered from that time for his leaning towards industrially-dark atmospheric music of artists such as Psychic TV & Throbbing Gristle -- dark ambient & trip-hop, Saturday morning techno & electro shows.
After "Substation" was closed, Alex worked as a DJ at both "Station 2000" and "Dynamite" radio stations. Today the name of DJ Alex Meshkov is associated with an epoch of the Russian techno scene as well as with a significant list of night-clubs. By 1999, Alex created music under the name of "Nooncat", his personal musical project. Nooncat's smart and neatly true tracks have been released on the European labels: Salo, Konvex-Konkav, Trapez, Treibstoff, MIS, Trenton, Lichen; and on the russian labels: Between Us, Phlegmatek.
In 2004 the Moscow "16 Tonns" club awarded Nooncat with a famous "Golden Gargoyle" as the best dance project of the year. For 6 years, he was the resident dj of the most popular among Moscow's bohemia "MIX" club, which closed forever on 07/07/07. From 2002, till November '08 ,Alex was a resident of the Deepmix Moscow Radio; and often plays in “Paparazzi bar”, “Solyanka”, “Shanti”, “Gorod” and “MIO” night clubs. Also on the internet radio www.rts.fm.
The geography of his performances is wide: Germany, England, Austria, Macedonia, Serbia, Poland, Romania and all across Russia. His DJ-ing style is rather wide and variable, however always original: from minimal to techno and his alter ego - melodic pop/tech.
