Verified profile
DJ and producer playing everything that feels good!

Playing the length and breadth of the country, Alex is at home at underground events, weddings, corporate parties or any other occasion, fitting the music and the vibe to the time and place. Alex tailors his musical sets to create the feelings the dancefloor wants, whether that's a rush of excitement, giddy highs and bone-shaking lows for a basement on a weekend night, a warm and relaxing chill-out session for a midweek wind down, cutting edge tracks for the innovation hungry or more familiar classics for those simply seeking a good time. Having taught himself to mix on vinyl 20 years ago, Alex mixes in a variety of styles on both analogue and digital systems. He considers himself lucky to call Manchester home, having not only the considerable musical heritage of that city to draw on but also the styles from all over the world that have fed into it over the decades, as well as the music that was prevalent in London and the south-east while he grew up in north Kent. This experience of many musical cultures over his time DJing has given Alex a truly broad palette to work with while curating your perfect night of music.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I'm pretty flexible in most cases with regards to timings. Let me know as soon as possible and I'll try and accommodate you.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

This is not always relevant for me, but if necessary I can put on a playlist before I start.

How much time do you need to set up?

This is dependent on circumstances, but usually between 1 - 2 hours.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Absolutely, requests in advance are encouraged! I'm there to entertain you and your guests, the more you tell me about what you like the better I'll be able to achieve that.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes. I have a full PA up to around 200 people, plus lights.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I'm more than happy to play requests at the event, the earlier I receive the request the more likely I can find and download it to bring along.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My clients love how easy I make it for them, and that as soon as you book me I have everything in hand. I play exclusively to your requirements, bringing together all my experience to make your event exactly what you want. I make you and your guests the centre of your party.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Including, but not limited to: The Trafalgar St James (London) Joshua Brooks (Manchester) Flight Club (Manchester) The Peer Hat (Manchester) Jack Rabbit's (Knutsford) The Courthouse (Knutsford) The Etihad Stadium P&O Ferries Private festivals - tents, woods, fields Various Rank Group venues around the country Various wedding venues around the country

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Too many to mention. Off the top of my head, Jeff Mills, BB King, Soul II Soul (Jazzy B, Nelly Hooper), Legowelt (Danny Wolfers), Joey Beltram, Frank De Wulf, The Beatmasters, The Fine Young Cannibals, The Blow Monkeys, Tracy Chapman.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Capacity-wise, I've performed at many 1,000+ venues alongside international pop and dance acts (e.g. The Vengaboys, S Club, 5ive, Judge Jules, Sonique). However, I would say the most high profile gig I've performed at would be either last New Years Eve at The Trafalgar St James or the private mini-festival I played for Hendrick's Gin in Scotland.

Truly unbelievably good. Dance floor filled within a few seconds of the music starting and it stayed that way throughout the band's performance. I was looking for something special for a combined 18th and 50th party, trawled the internet and watched a LOT of promo videos...my advice - if you're reading this because you want a class act, look no further - book Feel Good Inc now, there's a reason they get booked up. Everyone commented on the quality of the music and on how friendly the band members are. Communication with Tony (the boss) was easy and he replied to all my stupid questions immediately. Here are a few things that I fretted about - disco lights, music in the breaks, setting up, timings...blah blah...seriously, all you need is the venue. I wish I'd made a video to upload but I was too busy having a good time. Thank you FGI (though my joints are now aching after so much dancing). Might do it all again at 60!!!

Alex discussed with me from the beginning what I wanted and planned extensively to make sure everything was perfect on the night. The music was completely suited to the brief, and after the event I was informed that it was the most well attended end of year show that year, not only with a massive increase in footfall from previous years but also due to guests staying for the atmosphere created by the music. I highly recommend Alex as a DJ for your event.

Here at Jack Rabbit’s Knutsford we utilise bands and DJ’s on a weekly basis. Alex has now become our go-to DJ having delivered several bespoke DJ sessions for my clients; sometimes with a vocalist, sometimes solo. Nights are customised towards the event – for example 80’s influence or club classics.
