Alex has been Dj'ing professionally for the last fourteen years. Beginning in the late80's he worked his way through the free party/warehouse scene and began warming up for other well known DJ's such as Roy the Roach and Breeze R.I.P.
Alex's tastes encompass a wide range of music. He can play contemporary soulful dance, deep, or a mixed selection of up-tempo grooves Inc Disco, boogie, jazz, and always some forgotten classics. In his own words, "The emphasis is on the quality of the record be it instrumental, vocal, experimental. Everything has its place and time through the duration of a night, and if you have a good sound system and an open minded crowd and more than a couple of hours then it can all make sense!
