Ed Poston, Senior A&R Manager at Concord commented “Alex is an incredible talent, whether writing and producing for his artist project or for others, his distinct style delivers phenomenal energy and depth. We are very excited to be working with him”.
Harri Davies, Senior A&R Manager at Concord concurred, “Alex is a very unique talent. Few songwriters know how to craft dance floor records the way he can - it’s an absolute pleasure to be working with him again”.
His prominence in the UK Dance scene is undoubted, but his relevance across the pond has also grown over the years. Alex’s sound is always developing - challenging the traditional confines of genres, from his club-ready remixes to his more contemporary original works. There’s always something bold and interesting to be expected of him.
