The Holosound style has been characterized as as "warm, driving tech-house with a pinch of electro," but that truly only tells part of the story. Holosound's rich, immersive sound creates a vibe which is as well-suited for urban summer rooftops as it is for gritty late-night caverns.
Like many of today's great artists, Alex reaches beyond the conformities and limitations of genre-based stereotypes and draws upon a multitude of musical influences to create his own distinctive sound—winding and weaving seductive melodic landscapes and warm, pulsing basslines with the crisper, edgier percussive elements found within the depths of New York's tech-inspired underground. His willingness to blend these disparate elements—and his skill at pulling it off—results in a sublime amalgamation of styles that fills rooms, moves dance-floors and leaves a trail of satisfied crowds in its wake.
Since it's inception as a two-man production-oriented enterprise in 2004, to it's current state as a one-man powerhouse, Holosound's reputation for quality and consistency has permeated many corners of the global dance-music community and caught the attention of discerning club-goers and musicians alike. Following the exceptional success of Holosound's monthly headlining night, "Citric," at The Vault in New York City—a night which ran unbroken for four years straight—Alex and his former production partner, Noah Becker, launched Citric Recordings in 2008. The launch of the label—which has featured artists Kris B, Andy Newland, Mike Kiraly, Lukas Greenberg and others—was successful by all accounts, although an increasingly divergent set of interests led the duo to split amicably later that year in order to pursue separate opportunities.
Continuing Holosound as a solo endeavor has provided Alex the freedom to continue developing and refining the unique sound which he had already begun bringing from city-to-city as the de facto touring half of the former partnership. With appearances from Tokyo to Toronto, Helsinki to London, Phuket to Estonia and all over North America—Alex has been turning heads and earning the respect of his fans and peers the world over. His unique style and knack for energizing dance-floors has also helped land Holosound gigs in support of many of the world's top DJs—including Luke Fair, Satoshi Tomeii, Josh Wink, SOS, Kaskade, Audiofly, Desyn Masiello and others. In addition to live performances, Alex continues to attract followers through other outlets, including his brand new record label (Holobound Theory Recordings) and his long-standing North2South installation on Frisky Radio. The monthly show—whose enormous following earned Holosound "Artist of the Month" honors—has been a staple on the site since it's introduction in 2006, and continues to be a major outlet for spreading his unique musical style all around the world.
