We're so excited to continue our beloved Berlin Mixtapes Series, which has featured awesome guests so far. After a little break, we are back and have a number of very exciting artists that we'll be featuring over the coming months.
Next up we welcome Bavarian-Brazilian wunderkind Alex Stein. Alex is one of those sought-after artists, whose production credentials designing unique techno-music sounds, truly knows no bounds. The driving force behind this Berlin artist with Brazilian (São
Paulo) roots resides in his capability to concoct an intoxicating, mesmeric, and mind-boggling blend of hard-hitting techno patterns not devoid of soul. Energy flows in all directions and is dusty with optimism. Stein’s strength and sonic personality as a producer are gaining traction with every new release. He has earned credibility and high support with every release published on labels like Terminal M or Filth On Acid, as well as remixing artists like Dusty Kid or A*S*Y*S.
When Alex isn’t in his Berlin studio cross-pollinating the diverse forms of techno, he’s relentlessly traveling around the entire globe to perform at some of the world’s best festivals and venues. As a DJ, he has exceptional skill in reading the crowd. A globe-trotting DJ who has placed his pike in countries all over the world adding unforgettable tours in India, Australia, Canada, UK, Argentina… and has earned a loyal international fanbase that follows his high-energy sets from Luft Festival in Melbourne to Street Parade in Zurich, Love Parade in Berlin to the notorious Drumcode label showcases.
Alex Stein, a fine example of a consistent producer with a thrilling attitude that has defined his ascension in exploring the depths of electronic music with a distinct twist. Alex has also compiled our next Berlin Mixtapes Episode 042, which will be available to listen to from Sunday 30 April after our live event in Brighton at the Water Bear. We caught up with Alex ahead of our Bank Holiday weekender!
Hi Alex, how are you and what have you been up to this week?
Hi! I'm good and have been super busy between touring and finishing up some new tunes in the studio for this year's summer season :)
How long have you been in Berlin and what made you make the move all the way from Brazil?
I moved to Berlin in 2018 and the move was mainly because I was already so active in Europe that it didn’t make sense to fly back and forth to Brazil every weekend.
We welcomed BLANCAh from Sao Paulo some time ago, who became a crowd favourite amongst our partygoers. Do you still go back to Brazil and do you play much in the scene over there?
I visit Brazil usually once a year to see my family and friends and then play some one-off gigs in South America, which I love!
