Every person searches to find their mission in life, the
reason why they are here.
ANDR3X discovered his when he listened to his first Depeche
Mode album while in elementary school.
It wasn’t until his first experience at an underground party though that
he understood without a doubt his role in the universe. The experience was so
profound he was compelled to contribute and give back. This is where his
Growing up in Southern California
during the mid-90s, it was an explosive time for dance music as an organic
counter culture was taking shape in the Rave scene. ANDR3X believed music was a universal
language that connected people positively, especially Electronic Dance Music.
He started organizing and promoting underground parties to create awareness and
acceptance for this culture. His
"Subliminal" warehouse parties embraced Rave culture’s P.L.U.R. philosophy
and united Southern California with DJs such as Christopher Lawrence, Sandra
Collins, and Mr. Kool-Aid to name a few.
His passion for music extended to the studio. He studied
computers and music in college and produced tracks under the moniker “The
Nephewz.” After hearing his work, he was
approached by Yamaha and legendary synthesizer manufacturer EMU to program
content for several of their drum machines and synthesizers. Some of his work can be heard on the EMU
XL-7, MP-7 and Yamaha AN-200, DX-200, along with the Motif. He also started to DJ at this time, a natural
step as he continued to follow his heart.
Fast forward to the present and he is still as passionate
about the music as ever, working tirelessly in the studio, organizing events as
well as juggling a DJ schedule. His
promotion company ‘3X’ has organized, managed, and promoted over 1000 events as
well as booked over 500 DJs in the last 10 years. He runs ‘3X’ in the same manner as a record label, focusing on giving promotion and
exposure to DJs and music, similarly to how labels promote producers and
music. Currently, ‘3X’ is at Sutra (www.sutraoc.com), voted consistently in Bar
and Nightclub Magazine as one of the Top 100 Nightclubs in the U.S.A. ‘3X’
heads ‘Element’ at Sutra, an Insomniac (www.insomniac.com)
branded weekly promotion and one of the most popular EDM events on the West
Coast. Headliners have included ARMIN
VAN BUUREN, TIESTO, HARDWELL, ABOVE & BEYOND, and CALVIN HARRIS.
The collective experience from running ‘3X’ gave ANDR3X a
unique and broad perspective on music which ultimately influenced and help
craft his productions and DJ sets. In
the spring of 2013, his original track 'Believers'
was released with huge support from DJs and fans alike, notably from Russia’s
#1 DJ, BOBINA (www.bobina.info) who aired it on his radio show 'Russia
Goes Clubbing: 242 Edition.' Without question, ANDR3X's vast experience can be
heard throughout this track, masterfully blending style and emotion, fusing it
together for the dance floor. His Big Room Progressive House remix of Daft Punk
- Tron Legacy exhibits his keen insight for crossing genres, further expanding
dance music to uncharted territories. His remix of French Indie Rock band Phoenix - 1901 received phenomenal support throughout the
internet, charting #3 on Hype Machine (www.hypem.com), again showcasing his ability to create
cutting-edge dance music that packs the dance floor.
As a DJ, ANDR3X is not only a crowd favorite but also appeals
to the toughest of critics. His sets are an emotional high energy rush, each
track building on top of another like chapters in a book, revealing a story of
dance music as he taps into the present, past, and future. After all, ANDR3X believes music is a
reflection of life and people; this is his source of inspiration. His talent does not go unnoticed; elite
headliners from around the world often request to perform alongside him. ANDR3X
has shared the stage with artists such as ARMIN VAN BUURREN, FERRY CORSTEN,
ATB, GARETH EMERY, COSMIC GATE, and ABOVE AND BEYOND. His own headlining events bring capacity
crowds, and he has since been invited to play massive sets at Marquee (www.marqueelv.com) in Las
Vegas and Create Nightclub (www.createnightclub.com) in Hollywood.
His mix compilation "Believe In Music (Volume 1)" is touted around
the dance music community as one of the best compilations to emerge for quite
awhile, and his March mix for iHeartradio is 57 minutes of hand selected tracks
every premiere DJ needs in their arsenal right now. If you want proof of
ANDR3X’s ability to electrify a crowd, from the club to the festival, look no
further than these mixes.
ANDR3X’s passion and commitment has not changed since that
first underground party. Whether in the
studio, behind the decks, or organizing an event, it’s evident from his devoted
work ethic this is where his heart is. This is his mission. This is where he
