Left Coast DJ is the evolution of DJ Alxndr to work directly with clients that might not make it out to clubs. I have been DJing for more than fifteen years! I started in college, spending countless hours refining my skills mixing the music I loved – hip hop. Then I inherited my aunt’s record collection – she was a DJ in the 80s in New York City and I discovered new sounds I loved – funk, disco, electro. When I got to the Bay Area several years later I discovered electronic music – first breakbeats and house, then later dubstep and trap. And, of course, I’ve always had my eyes on the charts – everything from Justin Timberlake to Beyoncé. Over the years I’ve spun at just about every kind of event and venue – from underground raves to high profile corporate gigs. I’ve learned what keeps people on the dancefloor.
Because I learned how to DJ the “old-school” way – on vinyl records and turntables – I know how to blend music and create a seamless experience on the dancefloor. I also know how to mix the styles up and create a true journey – coherent yet varied. These days, I play most of my sets using my computer and a controller. But if you have a hankering to hear real live vinyl records mixed by a pro let me know and I’ll be happy to oblige.
In addition to being a DJ I am a psychotherapist. I feel this gives me the ability to be more sensitive to the dancefloor as a DJ! In fact, I wrote a whole blog post about it. I also have a passion for photography, hiking, and unique experiences.
