Pacific Voltage Club
From the moment close friends exposed him in 1995 to the sounds of Jeff Mills, Carl Cox and Laurent Garnier he knew the world of electronic music was a place he had to explore. 20 years on, techno exploration well under way.
Since investing in turntables whilst in high school and shown the ways of the wax from other established DJ's in Canberra the techno world was where Alexander felt at home. Pushing the sound forward never being comfortable to rest and play easy sets, his sound was furious, deep and experimental with rapid fire mixing and brutal hypnotic rhythms. Whilst travelling in the US after high school Alexander was invited to play at many clubs events and radio stations around Atlanta. This experience at the age of 18 allowed him to become highly adaptable to engage with any set up or crowd.
Returning to Australia Alexander hosted regular electronica and techno shows at the University of Canberra.
A leading figure in the techno community of A.C.T for several years, he was a resident at leading Club Heaven under the name Xuedhan and XU at the Vinyl Underground and Local knowledge events, debuting there with the tagline of full on f*ck off no bull sh*tin your face techno a by line that still holds true. This series of events has now become legendary forming a large part of educating and exposing the A.C.T. to leading underground sounds form around the world, drawing on the best of Detroit and Berlin, playing alongside interstate guests from Sydney and Melbourne.
The next chapter after deejaying indoor and outdoor in the region included escaping the cold of the A.C.T. moved to the warmth of Queensland and to gain his Advanced Diploma in Audio Engineering graduating in high regard from his peers and even helped to construct and patch the studio for future graduates.
Next notable appearance was an interview and feature on the Club with Nicole Foote once with DJ set and again with hybrid live set with the knowledge gained from his studies and fused with passion for techno. This hybrid set up has constantly evolved throughout his deejaying live performance journey as he can augment the best of techno from around the world with his flavour and production style, creating a unique blend distinctly his, heavy and future driven.
Family time with the arrival of his son and daughter has meant that live performances gave way for something a little more home bound. Studio sessions and the start of his first independent techno label called Mojodojo Music. His second and most recent label Adaptogen is setting its sights higher with support from other techno DJ's in Australia and plans for vinyl releases and distribution across Europe.
His current productions are now gaining attention of the worldwide techno community with remix for Californian label Journeys and an original EP and releases for Argentinean label Concepto Hipnotico and Lebanon based label Din is Noise, plus releases on his own label Adaptogen.
