At a young age, Alex realized the impact music had on his life and future. He found his love for DJing while attending parties and local events. Alex says he was attracted to DJing because of the ability to engage with an audience through music selection and master of ceremonies (MC) talents. Inspired by DJs such as DJ AM, DJ Craze and A-TRAK, Alex has the ability to take full control of a party and set the tone, creating a high energy feel for guests.
Alex is not your typical DJ, he uses interactive elements such as mic work, leading dances and music selections that match the mood of the party to keep the audience engaged and on the dance floor all night. He creates a high energy feel that sets the atmosphere for any event. A skill Alex has mastered overtime is how to prepare for a gig. He reads the demographic of the party patrons and determines what flow an event should have. Alex then secures songs and updates his playlists based on a clients wishes. A typical gig setup for Alex consists of, two speakers, a controller or turntables, wireless mics, lighting, a high-end venue, a DJ facade and lots of people on the dance floor.
As the resident DJ for Florida Atlantic University, Alex has had the opportunity to open for big name artists such as 21 Savage, Waka Flocka, T-Pain, Hunter Hayes and more for thousands of students. He gained training and experience through local DJs that have shown him the way along with the help of YouTube. Alex believes that sometimes you need someone to show you the path to success, and that mentorship is important.
Alex has performed at many popular clubs including AJA Channelside, Sakred Nightclub, Sandbar Delray Beach, Green Lemon Tampa, Fontainebleau Miami and more. Recently, Alex has been performing at more weddings and some of his favorite venues include The Don Cesar, The Vinoy, Armature Works, and the Westshore Yacht Club. His least favorite venues are the ones with a long load in for vendors which creates a real challenge for musicians.
Weddings are Alex’s event of choice. He believes that being a part of someone’s special day is so rewarding and that not many people can say they have a role in being a part of a love story. He treasures these moments and looks forward to creating more everlasting moments as his career takes off.
Alex’s biggest inspiration would be the era of 90s rappers such as Tupac, Easy E, Biggie, and others who faced hardships but were still determined to reach new heights when it came to their dreams. He believes that he has inspired himself by seeing where his journey started in comparison to where he is now by saying “when others comment on your success moments it really reflects the growth overtime.”
In the future, Alex is looking forward to playing new venues, establishing new relationships and continuing to be such a valuable asset to an event and creating special moments. DJ Alex graduates with his Masters in Business Administration this Fall.
