“Music is movement, variation, imagination and eternity. In other words: the future of sustainable
energy. As a DJ I try to transfer and receive that form of energy from and to the people on the dance
floor - mixing dark/groovy - techno tracks with tech house & electro floor fillers.”
Alexander Madness (AM) discovered daylight in 1978 in Koper, Slovenia. Already his mother knew that music is going to be one of his main interests: As a kid he always liked to stand in front of roaring speakers. Before diving into the universe of electronic music, Alexander was listening to rock, pop and all the other genres that are usually popular among the youth. ”I first got to feel the magic of electronic music in 1996, when sounds of fast hardcore hit my ears. Because that kind of music was rare at that time, I soon switched to slower rhythms of chemical progressive.”
In 1998, AM first stepped behind the decks and immediately felt the connection – and it’s still lasting. Like any other DJ he realized that the beginnings were not easy. His first gigs were played at local bars and private parties, but his technique evolved within years, as did his passion for the music. In the past years he was switching from one e-genre to another. Although he has an expansive taste in music, techno keeps intriguing him. Despite techno growing into a bigger genre
with its sub-styles in minimal, tech house and hard techno, he still discovers fascinating records in every style. This is the reason AM’s sound is so diverse and surprising.
He has been playing in all the major and recognized clubs, such as Ambasada Gavioli, Lipa, SubSub, Le Coupole, K4, Fleda Club, Bikini Sex Club, Radost’ Club, The Temple, Gallery, Fun Academy, Oxygen, Netopir, The Club, The Cube, Spacer Club, Channel Zero, Playtime,
