One of the first things you’ll notice about Alexander Aurel is his mental and emotional flexibility, constantly chasing him to discover fresh (musical) pastures. This flexibility turned out to be an effervescent source of inspiration. It all began in childhood when he was singing in a choir, playing the transverse flute and even arranged his first original compositions for the piano. These different musical experiments continued through Alexander’s teens and consistently targeted the beginning of his career as a DJ and producer. He was totally fascinated by the early days of electronic music culture, while constantly developing and inventing his own sound. He first played Progressive Techno, then moved on to Minimal and Electro. Today he plays Tech House and loves to take the crowd on a collective journey – away from daily routine and straight into the land of smiling, relaxed faces. He presents a wide musical spectrum that sounds percussive, melodic, pushy and groovy. Don’t be surprised if you meet him in the middle of the dancefloor while playing a set – Alex enjoys to be truly „at eye level“ with the crowd. His sweeping sound, paired with an open mind and congenialness, cleared him the way to tune in to a successful DJ career: Along with his long-term Residency at U60311 in Frankfurt (until 2011), Level 6 Club in Darmstadt and at the „Home“ events at MTW, numerous bookings all over Germany fill his agenda. Besides DJing Mr. Aurel spends a lot of time at the studio, producing his own tracks and releasing them on Labels like Terminal M, Frequenza, Soap, Circle Music or Harthouse. Currently he is one of the Residents at the hip „As you like it“-events, where he is playing together with DJ Karotte, doing what he knows best: Simply celebrating the moment and letting the music speak for itself.
