DJ/producer Alex Motu brings you deep house beats from Amsterdam. Loves to play soulful house with deep and techhouse flavours. Also organiser of MINX Exclusive | ROAR | Club Cream – Amsterdam [Holland] and resident DJ at Dogglounge.com deephouse radio.
ALEX MOTU (a.k.a. Edo van Randen) has been active in the Dutch house scene since 1989. He started as a light-jockey in the ‘Waakzaamheid’ in Zaandam, where he was working together with Eelco Anceaux (Chemistry). Shortly after, he was asked by Jeffrey ‘Abraxas’ Porter, for sound and light support at Planet E. A weekly clubnight in the Koggestraat in Amsterdam. When Planet E had to close, Jeroen Flamman and his partner Jeff Porter, opened up the first and famous ‘Subtopia’ after-boat behind the Central Station (scaffolding 14), where Alex, again, was responsible for the sound and lights as well as being a dj. This is where he played together with artists like Gino Lightner, Abraxas, Flamman, Jeroen Homan, Armando (USA), LFO (UK), Eddie ‘Flashin’ Fowlkes (Detroit), Juan Atkins (Detroit) and others.
Eventually in 1992, Alex and the ‘Subtopia’ crew ended up in the north of Amsterdam where they rented a big loft (capacity 1000+) , and started a new weekly night called ‘Transit’. For about 6 months the whole crew played her together with djs like Per, Dano and Keoki (NYC).
In the mean time he was also responsible for the promotion, together with Diana, and the decorations, together with Jarmo & Aphrodite (Ibiza, NL) of the hot and busy sunday night ‘Hour Power’ parties by Vandy O’ Mall (Powerzone) at ‘Escape Venue’ (Amsterdam) and the ‘After Hour Power’ at the ‘Lexion Venue’ (Westzaan).
Also, his big interest in-and working with sound and lighting lead him to start his own rental company. As time went by, he developed a great knowledge in this particular electronic area. This electronic horizon got even bigger, as he also learnt more about the ins- and outs of lasers, and the production of music.
So these days he is producing his own music as well as organising his own TEC909, NOSHIT!, Club Cream and MINX parties [Netherlands], together with DJ Miss Wendy.
And on thursdaynights to fridaymornings from 01.00 – 03.00hrs. Dutch time, he presents the Amsterdam Dance Radio & TV show, together with DJ Miss Wendy and Bob Squat. This show is also broadcasted live on Salto 1 TV in Amsterdam and the North of Holland.
