Alex Flitsch Mix

Born in the city of Pforzheim in the 70ies, Alex Flitsch was the youngest son of a traditional jeweller family. Alex had always been a music fanatic, and when techno hit the scene in the early 90ies, there simply was no way back. Being an enthusiastic collector of vinyl since the early nineties, he had his first dj gig in 1994. In 2005 he founded the well known Connaisseur Recordings label together with Martin Henkel and his wife Hilary in Frankfurt, where he has settled after various stopovers in Wiesbaden, London and Miami. The musical direction of his endeavours is heavily influenced by his solid knowledge of 20 years of electronic music: a true connaisseur. Several very successful releases on the label took Alex’s DJ career to another level. He has already rocked places like Tokyo, Mexico City, Moscow or Amsterdam just to name a few. Furthermore, he is a resident DJ at the Cocoon Club in Frankfurt and the Romy S in Stuttgart. The next logical step for Alex was of course, to launch his own productions, which is why he started a series of collaborations called Alex Flitsch meets in 2009. A good DJ needs knowledge, feeling, stamina and a high dose of enthusiasm.
