Alex is best known for being the founder and resident DJ of the London discoteque 'Love Fever'', which ran between 2008 - 2014 and was the DIY dance party for a generation. The night played its part alongside the likes of Horse Meat Disco, and Secretsundaze in helping to reinvent London's night life in the 2000's taking it back to its underground roots. Inspired by his work in design and the arts, Alex approached Love Fever in the form of a 'curator,' seeking to transform the dance party concept into a full sensory art experience.
Inspired by his Jazz and Folk musician father Alex started collecting vinyl and forming his taste from his childhood, delving into eclectic and often etherial ambient and worldly sounds as well as jazz, rock, and the new dance sounds of disco, house and garage, balearic and techno. Over the years, he has built up a reputation amongst his peers as a purist DJ's DJ and taste maker. His nights (and subsequent label) gave wings to superstar acts such as Bicep, MCDE, Hunee and DJ Sprinkles, whilst Alex was also joined by dance music icons such as Larry Heard, Nicky Siano and David Morales for all night parties that drew comparisons to the likes of The Music Box (from Heard), DJ Harvey's Moist and David Mancuso's Loft with its attention to detail, abandonment and carefully crafted music policy.
In 2014 Alex launched The Utopia Project, a return to his conscious roots encompassing a music label in collaboration with Phonica Records, a monthly radio show on NTS and the underground happenings he is known for. With a focus on holistic and electronic sounds.
His time working on London's prestigious Savile Row with creative directors Carlo Brandelli and Nick Hart of Kilgour and Spencer Hart and rubbing shoulders with the elite in design such as Peter Saville and Sir David Chipperfield helped to inspire the direction of his art projects in terms of their direction and ideology. Alex continues his work in product and clothing design with his own private label where he dresses some of the most notable names in the art, music, fashion and entertainment world.
