Alex Riudoms Simoes
Sao Paulo, Brazil
Following a tidal wave of musical talent produced by Brazil in the past decade, Alex Riudoms Simoes, also known as DJ Posh hasn’t disappointed his heartland and has become one of the most influential DJs in the European electronic music scene. A natural born musician, it was in his childhood that Alex discovered his passion for the electronic arena. The dream has since taken enormous proportions. DJ Posh has gone from playing guitar in his childhood at School gigs in Sao Paulo to resident DJ at Europe’s most prestigious night clubs: Pacha London, The Egg, Ministry of Sound, The Whitehouse, The Den aka The End, Kanya Bar and Eden in Ibiza and all over Brazil to name a few.
Like most aspiring musicians, DJ Posh has had to work hard to reach the level of success enjoyed nowadays with 4 releases already out through Celestial Recordings, one of UKs fastest growing underground labels, monthly residency at Ministry of Sound, summer residence in Ibiza and Winter residence in Brazil.
DJ Posh reflects on his successful career and reveals the origins of his inspiration. “My musical vein was certainly awakened by bands ranging from Chemicals Brothers to Bob Marley. It is, however, the day-to-day living that has and still does inspire me the most. Being out and about in the nightlife scene observing what really makes people get up on the dance floor has had a huge influence on my work. But above all, it is my passion for what I do that is the driving force behind my successful path. As Beethoven once noted: “Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life." Well, DJ Posh has indeed taken the advice on board and made it his personal motto. For someone who dreamed of conquering the world with his music, it seems that the sky is literally the limit.
