Mix old-school experience with modern tech-knowledge and you’ve got the basic ingredients for a DJ in the making. DJ Alexsed combines this with a keen musical ear and a talent for knowing what his audience wants, and brings this unique style across the ocean for international exposure to today’s audiences. Beginning his career in 1979 in the clubs of Western Ukraine, Alexsed has given the dance floor a taste of nearly every style in existence. But trance ? being as demanding and versatile among all other electronic styles? has become his favorite. His primary influences are mainly pioneers of early Trance like Jean-Michel Jarre, Space, PFT, and the Rockets, and these legends from the late 70’s-80’s have more than shown through, even in his style today.
Throughout the early 90’s, Alexsed started branching out, while at the same time becoming more acquainted with Trance heavy-hitters such as Simon Berry, Alexander Stiepel and Marc Van Dale. Alexsed has made it his absolute priority to always cater to his audiences, while putting together only the most refined mixes for them to experience. Flexibility and versatility are his most valuable traits, and he underscores them at each and every performance. His live sets entertained audiences from Poland, Germany, Austria, Bulgaria, Hungary, Lithuania, Russia and his native country of Ukraine, while Alexsed was a member of “Inter-Tour”(Sputnik) in Europe.
After a life-changing decision to move to the United States in 1995, Alexsed once again had to start fresh in making a name for himself. Despite the language barrier, he jumped right into performing for parties around the Midwest as a mobile DJ, gaining the attention of the local club scene soon after. He has since appeared as a resident DJ at most supporting EDM venues in Nebraska and Iowa.
While always staying true to his roots and breaking through in Trance & Progressive styles, Alexsed has taken the next step for his career in today’s technologically-rich environment by opening his outreach to the internet and streaming media. The full-length mixes for his show “Trance in Progress” are currently being featured on many internet radio-stations.
Remixing, mash-ups, and production are other projects that Alexsed started back in 2003 and is still enjoying today. Some of these have been included in recent episodes of his “Trance in Progress” show. So, if you’re in the mood for an uplifting, eye-opening Trance & Progressive experience, tune in and don’t hesitate to check out “Trance in Progress” with DJ Alexsed!
