Alex D'Elia is born in Riccione, the main center of the italian club scene... He got his passion for music, listening hours and hours to his records, leading him to be a dj at the age of 13, and win his first dj scratch competion prize at the age of 15, while was entertaining people in small clubs around his area.a In the meanwhile Alex's passion for music got so bigger, that drove him to built his first midi home studio in his own small room, and from this “small world” came the idea of his first cut project in collaboration with a close friend: P.F.Z "Love into the Future", released on the famous swiss compilation: DJ Energy Parade. Then he knew Andrea Doria and they have begun a collaboration on very different projects, like Avalone One "La onda del ritmo" (The Rhythm Wave) with Ramirez vocals. Another one was Atlantis Ita "See you in the next life", having a great acknowledgment working with Age One, Dino Lenny's U.K. based label. These records had a big room in clubs and was also published on the Pete Tong and Fat Boy Slim's Millenium compilation. Then Alex have produced many other projects, the most famous one is "Isn't life wonderful?", released on IDJ. The song it went in a short time a big room anthem (mostly in the english clubs) and was immediately published on the Ministry of Sound compilation. Constant experimental research, passion for every kind of music and curiosity for samples digital manipulation drove him to build a personal project called Loose Headz. In the last few years, he continued to work close to close, cheek to cheek with Andrea Doria, releasing “Jumping Jack” and presenting the first single together called “Arsenico E.P.” both released on BluFin.
September 2008 is the date of birth of his personal techno Label, Frequenza Records. Frequenza is going to release the first projects in these next months, Hi-quality projects including collaborations with friends as Andrea Doria, Nihil Young, Leo Martera (drummer and dj from world famous band Planet Funk), Dandi&Ugo, Piatto, Ragdoll and many others.
