For the next show we bring you Alex Marais.
He began his DJ’ing career back in 2008, at the tender age of 16. Among his first events was the hosting of MHP which, due to popular demand, was brought back twice over the years with MHP2 and MHP3 respectively. Alex’s taste in music has changed quite a bit from the early days of commercial tunes to his current love of drum and bass bangers which continues to grow exponentially.
In 2010, he won the Next Generation DJ competition held at Bliss Lounge, where he has played several times as well as Butterfly Studios, Springboks Newlands, Teen Fest and Club 91.
So far, 2011 has seen Alex play the Ridd’ems party at Blizzards and the Dubnation party at the late Tequila Town as well as becoming the winner of both the Brick City Competition at Fiction DJ Bar and the Fukkit Competition at Dakota. He is now also the resident DJ for The Warehouse Project, where he has played alongside the likes of Narch.
Alex now has to focus on splitting his time between his studies, DJ’ing and producing his own tracks. He intends to release his forthcoming EP, on Dubflex Records by mid-July 2011. The EP will include Breach and Vengeance – two of his most prolific tracks to date.
Phaze is definitely going places, and fast, so keep an eye out for him because he could just be the next big ting!
