Alex S. (aka. Jay Sander) was born into a musician's family and grew up in the far eastern part of the globe, in Kazakhstan. At the age of 16, he moved to Germany. His first station was Berlin, at least for the first 2 years before he moved to the south of Germany (Stuttgart). His DJ career started in 1999 in a small bar in Stuttgart followed by several local night club residencies in the region over the next 17 years.
Influenced by great artists such as „Daft Punk“, „Chemical Brothers“ or even DJ’s like „Carl Cox“ or „Green Velvet“ he decided to develop his own strict rules for creating the perfect sound.
While celebrating at TECHNO parties and festivals, he promoted himself at „Kazantip Republic“ (Black Sea). He ultimately ended up playing there for 5 long summer seasons and found new friends from across the world. At the same time as he was playing Stuttgart's electronic music events, even international Clubs from Georgia, Mexico, Spain and Turkey had invited him to play tech-house DJ sets.
What makes his shows extraordinary today is his ability to perform live with a MIDI synced hardware setup. In this setup, he doesn't use any DJ player or computer. Improvisational skills from the recording studio can be very useful on stage . The warmth of his very precise sound stems from analog drum computers and vintage synthesizers. Even the recording mixer used in his productions has its roots in the late 90-ties and adds his typical analog touch.
