Growing up he was always influenced by music, he learned classical piano, jazz piano and the basics of beat making from a young age before advancing his studies to audio engineering. Now, Alex is focused on his solo project as a live performer, driving his sets from deep classical house to an experimental percussive upbeat groove that takes you into the cosmic realm. His work has reached high chart positions on major portals and he has collaborated with a host of top artists over the years.
