Alex Sanchez [ALX] has embarked on a journey that experiments with new elements to create a sound that has been described as “(a one of a kind brew) with an unshakable high energy and a steady pulsation that embeds itself to your heart rate.” In a music scene with no shortage of cultural influence, where hours can easily turn into days of music, ALX has engrained his mark in Miami. His concoction of groovy tech house beats, tied in with meticulously crafted baselines has catalyzed his rise in the Techno arena. This dynamic music scene has provoked ALX’s sound, production, and programming. He’s sifted through an aural mélange to infuse his sounds with deep dark basses, analog synths, and experimental riffs. Curiosity and exploration launched him into the DJ realm and remains at the core of his productions.
In Miami, he’s surrounded by constant stimulation which allows him to fuse deep, yet groovy, techno beats with carefully constructed basslines that channel a flux of energy to carry crowds through a rhythmic odyssey. ALX’s distinct programming opened the doors for him to play extended sets on the Terrace at Club Space Miami, one of the most sought-after rooms in the world, where he holds a residency. Performances ranging from nightclubs to label showcases and acclaimed music festivals have allowed him to share the stage with the likes of Maceo Plex, Paco Osuna, Nicole Moudaber, Victor Calderone, and more.
ALX’s recent releases have gained him recognition in the Techno realm. “His music is a consequence of a careful attention to detail” says Thump Magazine, “his ear for enhancing his sound with pulsing, eclectic melodies is making him one to watch.” His latest releases “Don’t” and “You No” have climbed Beatport’s Top 100 Techno tracks and have garnered support from Pan-Pot, Adam Beyer, Sian, Mark Knight, and more . In the studio, tenacity fuels him to constantly build and revisit components that enhance his production. In the DJ Booth, no two performances are alike as he utilizes new tools to produce and tailor his music on the fly to convey fluid energies. “Music is a form of communicating feelings and energy, not a particular message”, says ALX, “it goes beyond music; it’s about how you make people feel and the experience you create for that moment.”
As he continues his production in the studio, ALX undertakes a next chapter as he works to build his new concept, Descend, an experience that ventures into the deeper spectrum of his sound. ALX’s Descend event debuted at Club Space this year, as he’s working to soon develop it as a label.
