Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement
“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 minimal
techno tracks with electro house floor
fillers. For the rough cases I always
carry progressive and electro tracks
in my DJ bag.”
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 until he really got into techno, which he still prefers. He plays mostly minimal/techno and electro/house but in his DJ case you’ll also find progressive and electro tracks.
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, Playtime, Forest, Tivoli, Arcade, Culture club and many more. He participated also on Final Flash, Fetique-Boutique, Born to be Wild, The way of Freedom and Sound Of Summer events.
Throughout his eight year run and after AM’s guest appearances in numerous venues in Slovenia, Croatia and Italy, 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, Danilo Vigorito, dA frESh, Mashtronic, Electrixx, Ade Fanton, Virgin Helena, Paul Hazendonk, Petar Dundov, Jamie Bissmire and many more.
