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, K4,The Temple, Fun Academy, Oxygen, Netopir, The Club, The Cube, Channel Zero, Playtime, Forest, Tivoli, Arcade, Culture club and many more. He participated also on Final Flash, Fetique-Boutique, Maximal, Astrodisco, Born to be Wild, The way of Freedom and Sound Of Summer events.
AM is currently making a real name for himself. His productions have found him fans that include the likes of Umek, Marco Carola, Pedro Delgardo, Tomcraft, Wehbba, Tomy DeClerque, Dyno, Laurent Garnier, Tomcraft, Riccardo Ferri, Thomas Krome, Criss Source, Jan Nemecek, Piatto, dA frESh, Dandi & Ugo, Robert Leiner, Markantonio, Maverickz and many more.
AM's production and DJ-ing styles has led to release on Euro Phonix records, Slavic records, Sound Evolution Xtra, 4 Season records, Decoded Mini records, Ecotech records, Sidechain records, Render Obedience records, Speca records & Italian Piatto's label N.O.I.A. which is actually a sub label of well known and respected label Italobusiness owned by Dandi & Ugo.
His track (Great Stuff) was chosen for CD compilation ''Minimal Techno 7'' on ZYX records with names like: Pig & Dan, Ramon Tapia, Reiner Weichold, Umek, Alex Bau, John Acquaviva, Dimitri Andreas, Stephan Bodzin, Marc Romboy, Kiko, Ginos, Kaiserdisco, Dandi & Ugo, Nic Fanciulli, Oliver Klein and many more... He has just signed with 1605 Music Therapy (owned by Umek), Teggno records, Open records & Sex Panda records. With these upcoming releases he’s looking to add another big chapter to his list of releases. Throughout his eleven years run and after AM’s guest appearances in numerous venues in Slovenia & Croatia, AM has also shared the spotlight with some of the industries best DJ’s. Some of his collaborations include artists such as Valentino Kanzyani, Andy Moor, The Filterheadz, Richard Bartz, Len Faki, Bryan Cox, Oxia, Joris Voorn, Matthew Dekay, Seamus Haji, Criss Source, Danilo Vigorito, dA frESh, Mashtronic, Electrixx, Ade Fanton, Virgin Helena, Paul Hazendonk, Petar Dundov, Jamie Bissmire and many more.
