Alex Moreno is one of the Sweden’s largest and significantly fastest growing DJ names. No other Swedish DJ has been able to attract the level of fame which Moreno has received without producing and selling tracks. Alex has with his tremendous skill and flexibility been able to form a successful career with potential to grow significantly within the months to come.

Growing up in Stockholm, Alex’s interest for the DJ culture and the electronic music started evolving. Alex began to collect vinyl records with the music which he held most dear. By collecting money and working outside of school-hours he was able to finance his first DJing equipment. His curiosity led to him experimenting and was the beginning of a new era for Moreno.
Being a bed-room DJ for a while, he started receiving requests from his friends to attend and play on their smaller ventures. Carefully, yet intriguingly he started to take on the role of being a real DJ, and finally he received a chance to play on a smaller night club venture in Stockholm. His performance was more than satisfactory and this would be the real kick-off for his DJ career.
