Amir Alexander is one of the leading names in US house music in the last few years.
The Chicago-based house music producer has won for himself fans all across Europe with his Vanguard Sound label.
Alexander will play at ADE along with the likes of John Daly, Youandeman,Roman Flugel, Giles Smith, and James Preistley.
Alexander came onto the scene after starting an association with the Secretsundaze label which has backed Midwestern US artists such as Smith, Patrice Scott, and Chez Damier.
After spending many years as a starving artist, the now 40-year-old Alexander, who first became exposed to electronic music at age 7, is glad for the opportunity to ply his trade, develop his skills, and further his discipline.
And he says while his mentality hasn’t changed it has certainly evolved and being able to play out regularly enables him to see what works and what doesn’t and in what context.
He notes that his life changed forever after he heard the full version of ‘Planet Rock’ played on the radio for the first time.
