DJs - Alex

I started DJing in 2007 after leaving my graduate sales job in London to pursue my dream of making large crowds of people dance. After picking up regular work around the bars and clubs of Exeter playing funk, soul and hip-hop, I gained residencies at nights in Bristol, Bournemouth and London, building a reputation for multi-genre party sets, and particularly in Electro-Swing, 20’s and 30’s swing sampled music for a more modern crowd. It is within this genre that I have gained bookings all over the UK and even abroad in Paris, Malta and Croatia. My prominence within this scene has even seen me perform headline sets at many festivals including the legendary Boomtown and Bestival on the isle of Wight.

My main residency now is for The Electric Empire, a night that I have seen go from a small pub in New Cross through to The Bussey Building in Peckham and on to The Electric Brixton (formerly known as The Fridge), where I play my own brand of vintage remixed music with a cutting edge sound to packed crowds of 1800 people in an old theatre in the heart of southwest London, including support sets for legends such as Grandmaster Flash and Krafty Kuts, on a regular basis. I have amassed 1.8k fans on my Soundcloud account and my mixes have been listened to and download hundreds of thousands of times all over the world, as well as being supported on some of the most prominent dance music blogs on the web.

Having been to many of the weddings of my friends and family, and seeing how many DJs in the industry performed at receptions, I teamed up with my turntablist friend Alex to create Offbeat Entertainment, to provide an alternative style of DJing for couples looking for something more than your average mobile Disco.

Now in it’s fifth year, Offbeat has become one of the standout mobile discos of the South-West, regularly playing at some of the best wedding venues the region has to offer.

My combination of passion, musical knowledge, mixing skills, ability to read a dance floor and dedication to making sure those who book me get more than they imagined make me a great choice and a safe pair of hands for a party that will live long in the memory.
