Alex (aka DJ Alexy) is a newcomer to the international zouk dj scene though music has always been a big part of his life. He started his formal training in classical piano at the age of 7 and continued this through his schooling and time at university.
Alex really began to immerse himself in various latin dance styles including salsa, bachata & zouk from 2009 and soon thereafter started to host and spin at his own events in Sydney and later in Canberra.
In early 2015, Alex started to produce his own remixes and compositions largely tailored for Brazilian zouk dancers. He continued to hone his skills in music production and djing that year and started to land spots in local festivals such as the Sydney International Zouk Festival and the Sydney Latin Festival.
In 2016, Alex played at his first international gig in the USA and launched his own podcast called Zouk My World Radio Australia.
In 2017, Alex featured in more festivals around Australia and the USA including I’M Zouk in Miami. He won the popular vote for Australia’s favourite zouk dj in an online poll hosted by the Sydney Latin Festival and also won an award for being one of the favourite djs at the Hawaii congress.
Alex continues to produce hundreds of tracks, with his music now being played by other djs in dozens of countries around the world. He hopes to continue to grow his skills and share his works with the rest of the dance community with the aim of spreading joy and inspiring the love of music and dance to people around the world.
