ALEXisMADD is an internationally renowned transgender DJ and musical artist, sought after for her versatility and unparalleled talent behind the decks. Her diverse blended mix of the finest sounds, funkiest grooves and deepest soulful beats layered seamlessly together has earned her the respect of a vast number of her peers. She has an uncanny ability to engage almost any crowd, whether it be getting people tapping their feet to a chilled rhythm in a cocktail lounge, to packing a dancefloor to banging tracks in a nightclub. As a DJ who learned initially DJing on turntables, her heart is and will always remain about the music and the feeling it generates, and this shows through in her DJ sets.
A talented and experienced producer, she has had many popular club tracks and remixes, nationally and internationally. Her first large-scale popular original production, "Feel My Body" was released independently in 2000, gained vast airplay nationally in the clubs and on radio, charting as high as no#2 on the national online house charts, no#27 on the ARIA Club Charts, and no#14 on Jimmy Z's Dance Charts. Her 2012 release “Summer Sunset” on German label Especially Sounds became a very strong summer house tune internationally, gaining popularity worldwide and was featured on a number of dance compilations. Her next popular release, “This is Me” on Hi-Tech Records, allowed her to re-appear in the ARIA Club Charts once again! She has also produced numerous remixes and original productions, all of which have been very popular in the club scene on a local and national level, with her 2019 remix of Sydney LGBTI artist Beth Yen's track "Oceans" reaching no#1 on the ARIA Club Charts and holding the #1 spot for 7 weeks!
As an experienced DJ with over 20 years behind the decks both nationally and internationally, she takes her listeners on a journey with her music, expressively bringing out positive and energetic emotions and feelings through her mixing skills, track selection, and musical flow. She firmly believes that DJing is about making a listener feel certain positive emotions and relive memories through careful track selection and meticulous mixing skills. Her perfectionist attitude towards DJing shows in how smooth every mix is, and her uncanny ability to read just about any crowd quickly and accurately allows her to adjust her sets on the fly, ensuring the people at the venue are enjoying themselves.
Her very first festival gig was a local Newcastle boutique festival called Vitalbeats, at which she demonstrated her unparalleled ability to work the dancefloor. Upon entering the arena she was scheduled to play in, she was greeted to an extremely small number of patrons (less than 10), with only two of them dancing. Within 20 mins of starting her set, the arena was full, holding several hundreds of people. However, their largest gig was at a club called Hotel Metro, where on one particular Friday night, she played to in excess of 1600 people. However, as years progressed, she has chosen to transition from big nightclubs to smaller boutique bars, giving her the opportunity to express her artform in a chilled, relaxed vibe.
