Alex Medina started his career in 1993 when he fell in love with electronic music. Since then
he has performed in clubs–such as Watergate and Der Visionaire in Berlin–and festivals around
Europe and occasionally in Asia.

balance between electronic and organic sounds escaping from burnt standart and embracing new vibes and risky mental electronica for mature audiences.
The label acts as a platform for emerging artists
and established names such as Barem. Since its creation, artists such as Marc Piñol or Benjamin Frölich have remixed the latests Mumbai records releases.
Medina has been involved in several projects with other musicians, and has aproached pop electronics and ambient creating bands such as Tropical Barba.
