With an impressive series of high-end releases and remixes on the upper league of worldwide quality labels and the exposure he gains as a direct result, Alexander Fog is rapidly becoming a household name in his beloved world of quality music.


Hailing from Northern Italy, Alexander Fog developed a deep rooted love for electronic music during his teenage years while self-teaching him the art of DJ-ing. Pursuing to be a part of the EDM community, Alexander Fog started to work as a promoter for “Move The Boyz” to later become the leader of the electronic movement “Warriors”. He began touring throughout Europe as a DJ playing house music and visited countries such as Italy, The Netherlands, Switzerland and Belgium in clubs such as Cubik, Essence and Evolving.


Alexander spent a significant amount of years in Amsterdam, sucking up the hedonistic atmosphere of the Dutch capital by DJ-ing and organising events. During Alexander’s Amsterdam era where he roamed the city exploring its underground culture, he got infected with underground techno and tech house. After moving back to Italy, Alexander Fog began playing tech house and minimal in some of the country’s biggest clubs and venues.


Alexander is a true globetrotter. Having travelled the world whilst examining various cultures and coming across all aspects of the global nightlife, Alexander resided all over Europe and North America and South America. The experience of encountering a wide variety of musical styles became evident in his DJ-ing, his productions and the way he observes the electronic dance culture in general. Alexander Fog is not a person to be pigeonholed or stigmatized; he produces from the heart without being influenced by contemporary hypes.

Being amongst thousands of participants to eventually being crowned the outright winner delivered Alexander Fog a media package worth $7,500 and a full page article in DJ Mag, giving him tremendous exposure to both the music industry as well as the global clubbers. As a result, Alexander got to tour North America, where he rocked the masses in Las Vegas, Miami and Tampa hot spots, and South America to invade Medellin, Cali and Armenia in Colombia, the epicentre of techno at that time and considered to be one of the strongest techno scenes on the planet.
