8.2.14 Umek & Friends @ Izola (Ambasada Gavioli)
Alex Ranerro was born in Zagreb (Croatia), but his family soon moved to a small city of Laško, Slovenia. Music has always been Alex's big love and his way of life. He began his musical journey at a very early age. Only eight years old, he embarked upon playing a saxophone. Needless to say, he fell in love immediately. Always chasing for new creative ways in crafting melodies and unique sounds, he stumbled upon music production.
With hard work and dedication, came first results, as his first track »Bang Her« got signed onto UMEK's 1605 Music Therapy. Some of his next projects were also released at distinguished labels like Natura Viva, Neptuun City, Get Funky Music, Influential Music, getting hefty support from the likes of UMEK (countless times in his famous radioshow "Behind The Iron Curtain"), Mike Vale, My Digital Enemy, Paul Strive, Heartik, Daniel Greenx, Ant Brooks, Mario Ochoa, Youri Donatz, Angel Stoxx, Dennis Ramoon and Luca M.
Alex Ranerro has played numerous sets and club gigs, festivals and radio shows and has also attended many different events across Slovenia, Croatia and Spain. Alex regularly plays at venues such as Cirkus, Klub K4, Klub Euforia, Klub Pržan, Klub Terazza and also at festivals like Cipkarija, where he played alongside Marko Nastic and Raul Mezcolanza. He also warmed up the stage at Kurzschluss for UMEK, Phunk Investigation and the rest of the 1605 Music Therapy crew.
Playful, developed, unique and recognizable are words that best describe his style and Alex as a DJ. Alex Ranerro is fast becoming one of the most promising new talents on the Slovenian house scene. Follow him on his path and stay tuned for more info!
