Alex Madden has been producing and delivering soundwaves of epic proportion since busting the dance scene apart in 2005. The journey began when Alex was 16 years old, growing up in North London he became engrossed with the UK Garage (UKG) scene that was very popular at the time. Many of Alex’s friends were DJ’s and in the beginning it never occurred to him that it would be something he pursued so fully in his later life. Inspired by the great UKG DJ’s/Producers at the time such as DJ EZ, Todd Edwards, MJ Cole, Grant Nelson and many more Alex was regularly attending the events at local clubs and bars as a raver. A brief encounter with DJ EZ after a set at Twice as Nice would change Alex’s life, the two exchanged words and after a barrage of compliments paid by Mr Madden he was told “You could do what I do, you just have to practice, practice, practice!”. At this point in time Alex had never even touched a pair of decks, this was soon to change. After years of practising and hard graft his musical knowledge and tastes changed after a holiday with friends to Ibiza. House music became his new love and this was where he wanted to make his mark. Several years on you will now see Alex producing and spinning an array of House music from Progressive and Tech to Deep and Electronica.
Alex’s skills as a DJ has landed him at events with some of the biggest names in the industry today. Supporting and playing alongside the likes of Sonny Wharton, Lucien Foort, Paul Thomas, Ridney, Sunnery James, Ryan Marciano, Danny Howells, Funkagenda and Michael Woods it’s clear to see that he can stand shoulder to shoulder with the big boys. A highlight so far in his career was touring Australia early in 2011. Playing in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Cairns and Melbourne cementing the tour with a headlining gig at Singapore’s Stereolab. He is also is very proud to hold a residency with Flawless Promotions in the UK with their events touching in at venues such as Pacha, Digital and in 2012, Proud 2. Over the last 2 years Alex has also built and maintained a following in Holland visiting the country at least 4 times a year.

Other affluent venues to have Alex grace their audiences are Eden in Ibiza, Sankeys in Manchester as well as the world famous Ministry of Sound in London.
