My name is Falex or Alex - from United Kingdom.
I have been a fan of dance music since 1993/94, originally I started out with Jungle/Drum & Bass. listening on the FM pirate radio stations - a new world of underground dance music. Going through the 90's I got into House & Trance through the compilations that were released by DJ's such as Pete Tong & Seb Fontaine. I was a regular listener to Radio1. I was always keen to learn how to DJ as I found each DJ had a different style and method. The idea of going to Ibiza and making it big also was a big attraction. In my late teens I enjoyed the buzz of dance music flowing through the charts and the night clubs in my city.
In 2002, after a short term in the armed forces I met some new friends that were to change my life. They introduced me to the underground scene once more, in the way of after-hours clubs and in tune with Hard House/Trance. I was able to get a close up on how DJ's did their thing. In no time at all I managed to acquire my first pair of decks and a few vinyl. I was on my way, and I my friends were also at the same stage as me. I had my first chance to play that same year, it was enough for me to want to do it again.
To this day I continue to work at getting myself out there. I went digital in 2007 purchasing my first pair of CDJ's. I still love playing vinyl though. By chance I got involved with internet radio in 2008 after a couple of years playing my tunes through Paltalk rooms.
I left my position as resident internet radio DJ in the summer of 2010 to persue my further ambitions in music production. I started Rock School Level 2 Audio Producer course in September 2010 and wish to continue transcending through the education levels.
Over the years, my preference has been Trance - uplifting, vocal, progressive,tek. I do love playing other styles of music though, including House, Fidget, Techno, Dutch, Breaks, Old Skool, Garage, Drum & Bass and generally anything with a beat.
Recently I have been playing out at events local to Leicester. Including Ox Rocks, Havana Presents, Sumo (Private) and many parties along the way. I have also supported Beat Logistics and due to support Balistic at the legendary 'Emporium' nightclub in Coalville. I have also been developing my mixing skills digitally on software. Thus allowing me to make studio mixes and really get creative. My first year is almost complete and my learning skills are improving at a great rate. 2011 has been prosperous so far and I will be posting my years production to share and get feedback. My next plan is to go on with BTEC (extended) Creative Music Tech.
