Alex Wilcox is an American music producer and DJ based in Berlin. He recently burst onto the scene when Anetha discovered his sizzling banger “Sleep Paralysis” which led to his Mama Told Ya EP titled - “It’s Okay to Cry.” As reviewed by Resident Advisor, this “oddball” techno release was quickly played by Ellen Allien, Mama Snake, Francois X, Nina Kraviz and countless others at Berghain, Fusion Fest, Ultra, and too many others to list.
The release caught the attention of label heads around the world, eventually leading to his recent EP “Always” released on Nina Kraviz’s label Trip Recordings. This EP expanded on Alex’s deep and multi-faceted musical background - showcasing surgical, banging, hooky techno that pushed boundaries and is being played by SPFDJ, Bjarki, Patrick Mason, Anetha, Salome, AADJA, u.r. Trax, and many more.
His influences are dramatic, ranging from working at Underground Resistance HQ in Detroit with Mike Banks, setting up microphones for Tyler, the Creator in Hollywood, to assisting Platinum-selling pop producer Pinkslip in Los Angeles.
Alex was quickly brought out of the studio to make his Berlin debut at Ellen Allien’s infamous “We Are Not Alone” party. In the past year he has started to light up the club circuit - playing at Pal (Hamburg), Nexus (Paris), La Belle Électrique (Grenoble), Weeeirdos (Berlin), Echo Recordings (Groningen, NL) and many other spots.
His sets feature only his own productions and can be described as a genre-less chaotic whirlwind involving hard cuts, numerous BPM changes and existential theatrical moments.
2023 is looking bright as Alex gears up to open for Charlotte de Witte in Paris and to release more ambitious musical projects - expanding his universe of unique, progressive, bombastic, catchy, and surreal club music.
