Biography

Aleksandar Grozdanovski

b. 1976

I remember swallowing art voraciously since my early age. From comic books to sci-fi, photography and visual arts, movies, always eager for more, music was the only passion that lasted until now. My passion for music mostly emerged from innumerable years of dj-ing. After getting a degree and work experience in photography and visual arts, I dedicated completely to music. I did everything for music and invested myself into it. I ate music, one meal equals an Aphex Twin album. Everything that I receive on a daily basis I want to translate it through music. People often describe my music as an entanglement of many genres, flowing from indie electronic to house and techno. I would say it is a sonic journey that never ends and I enjoy the process.

The first two releases that gave me international recognition known as Herzel & Genoveva were “No More Lies” EP (Other Heights/B) and “The Action Of Staying” EP (Dubwax/D) in 2012. My first solo vinyl release Shades EP with Palms Trax remixes on John Talabot’s Hivern Discs (S) came out in February 2015. Another two vinyl releases on Charlois (NL) “The way You Feel” EP with Cliff Lothar’s remix and upcoming “Days & Nights” EP with Simoncino’s remixes for The Exquisite Pain (FR) just boosted me to work more and grow as an artist.

I had remixes on the following labels, Stem Records (UK), Shift LTD (IT), Nanda records (UK).

Artists such as John Talabot, Pional, Boddika, Joy Orbison, Legowelt, Jacques Renault, Phon.o, Brendon Moeller, Erol Alkan etc. valued and supported my work. The records have also been reviewed by renowned music magazines and blogs as Xl8r, DJ Mag, Resident Advisor, Inverted Audio, De:Bug, Igloo and Phonologue and played on radio stations like BBC, NTS and Ibiza Global Radio among others.

The peak of my current gigs was my live act at Dimensions Festival, besides constantly playing at renewed underground clubs and parties around the globe. As a part of the Berlin club scene, I regularly play at Parallel showcases.
