A lifelong music lover, Alex Sanchez, more commonly known as DJ ALX, fuels his audience by combining deep and energetic styles of music from across the globe. From the start, this Miami-born DJ has been exposed to the unique flavors that can only be found in the South Florida music scene. ALX’s one-of-a-kind concoction of deep techno vibes mixed with enticing high energy grooves wraps his audience in impulse and vibrations from dusk to dawn.
From his start, entertaining local house parties and school dances, his style has matured from typical crowd-pleasing commercial house to the creative impassioned beats of techno. After being left with a friend’s DJ equipment for the weekend, his curiosity got the best of him as he fired up the speakers and sifted through tracks- he was hooked and the unique style of DJ ALX was born.
Hungry for more, ALX found inspiration from artists such as Adam Beyer, Victor Calderone, Marco Carola, Joseph Capriati, Richie Hawtin, and Carl Cox. He admits that, in the techno realm, the list of artists that influenced him may seem eclectic, however, ALX credits them with helping him find his niche where he combines the driving baselines of techno with the acoustics of funky tech house to craft his individual sound. There’s a unique feeling every time a deep baseline emerges, a tingle in his spine that cannot be explained and an energy in the room that is felt by all who are present. “When I’m in a flow I just ‘check-out’ into my own world and that’s where I want my audience to go”, said ALX.
ALX carries a crowd of loyal fans and supporters that follow him wherever he spins. He’s left a mark on smaller but well-known venues in Miami, such as the Electric Pickle and Tree House, to Orlando’s Senso Supperclub. His reputation for distinctive beats and style has pulled him up the South Florida nightlife ladder and has granted him access to perform at the world-renowned scenes of Club Space, Nikki Beach, and Mansion, in Miami.
Drawn to techno and tech house because of the limitless opportunity to express himself, ALX keeps an open ear for new ways to pepper his tracks and charm his listeners. Producing music allows him to unleash his true vision and insert a custom signature into his sets. “I love making new tracks because it lets me add something truly unique to the mix, something that screams ‘me’ because it was made from scratch,” said the DJ.
His ability to adapt to and capture hard-to-please crowds truly sets him apart from the rest. “It’s all about the crowd and the vibe,” says ALX. “Everything I do in music, every new track, every baseline, every beat, is done for the experience. Nothing gets me more pumped than seeing people captured by the sound.”
