DJ Alex is an Italian/American born in Vicenza Italy. Growing up in a military family meant being constantly moving from city to city country to country. Between the ages 6-11 he lived on the East coast (New Jersey & New York) and that’s when he got hooked on hip hop. When he visited his family in L.A. CA he was fascinated with the west coast sound,and became a huge fan of artist like N.W.A. – Dr.Dre – West Side Connection – Snoop Doggy Dog – and his all time favorite TUPAC SHAKUR.
In the early 90’s DJ Alex moved back to his hometown Vicenza where Hip hop is just now becoming more mainstream and appreciated by the general masses.
Back when he was growing up in Italy he always stayed true to his personality and style, trying to spread and introduce hip hop and it’s culture to the local teenagers in his school. He did this by organizing parties on school grounds for which he provided music for. At the age of 13 he started going to clubs (in Italy there isn’t a strict age limit), and getting exposed to the night life, which he grew to love more & more. Luckily in his home town there is a US ARMY base so the most important HIP HOP CLUB in all Italy (PALLADIUM) was right in his home town and sure enough became DJ Alex’s 2nd home. There he got to see live performances from artist like Coolio – EPMD – Rahzel – Pharoahe Monch – Afu Ra – DJ KOOL just to name a few…
DJ Alex’s favorite Hip Hop era and influence is from 95-2002 period.
At 17 he started to be really intrigued by the mixing style of the club’s resident DJ “DJ CISO” r.i.p. ,and got the inspiration to wanting to learn how to make his own blends and mixes. In the begging he was using simple DISC Mans to mix, because at the time he didn’t have enough money to buy the equipment needed, so he started to work after school and took out a loan to by a pair of brand new CDJ-100. With those he started learning how to beat match and blend tracks together.
At 18 DJ Alex started doing his first private parties, until he got his first real GIG (spinning for a pizzeria).
In a short time frame he started moving his way up to Bars and Pub’s , soon acheaving his long awaited goal “REAL CLUBS”. Through out DJ Alex’s career he got to spinn in many famous and prestigious clubs in the northern regions of Italy. Helping put Hip Hop and it’s colture on the map. He got the honour to meet and DJ for artists like Pitbull – Yung Joc – Shop Boyz – Mike Jones -Mario – Mic Supreme, and he is now resident DJ for a notorious Hip Hop Club in Veneto PRINCEVILLE Disco, he is also Ruff Ryder Entertainment artist Mic Supreme’s (a.ka. Da Beast) OFFICIAL DJ when he is on tour in Italy.
DJ Alex is specialized in club performances, where he puts all his passion and effort to ignite dance floors with his lethal blend of Hip Hop club bangers mixed with House – Eletronic remixes & topped off by mind blowing Old School Hits !!
Viewing mixing as a sort of transformation between one track to the next, inspired him for the name to his highly requested series of mix CD’s “Transforming The Beat” and the logo he created.
DJ Alex’s ambition is to conquer club dance floors around the world,city by city.So be on the look out, wherever you are…he’s coming…and you know what time it is….
