There’s something brewing in Brazil as of recent, with a string of talented techno and house artists from the country enjoying well-deserved notoriety in the last few years. Alex Stein is a true Brazilian (São Paulo) homegrown artist with roots that reach all the back to the Old Continent — with German blood flowing in his veins and German citizenship to prove it.
The Bavarian-Brazilian artist has made his own way through vast musical studies, including Audio Engineering, studied at the SAE Institute in Frankfurt, as well as a lot of trial-and-error to get where he is now as one of the most well-known and revered artists of the new Brazilian techno/tech-house scene.
His work in the studio has been paying off with a recent release on Suara the latest of a series that has seen him put out music on labels the likes of Bunny Tiger, Great Stuff Recordings, Herzblut, Tronic and Sincopat, all the while preparing a new EP for Oliver Huntemann’s imprint Senso Sounds. You wouldn’t be mistaken in thinking that Alex seems to be following on the footsteps of his close friend, peer and fellow countryman Victor Ruiz. They have not only produced together but seem to be following the same path of ascension in their industry, as Alex enjoys an incredible legion of followers not only in his home nation Brazil, but throughout the world thanks to performances in Canada, South Africa, Australia, and of course the main European capitals.
6AM caught up with Alex to learn more about his roots and the personality behind the great music he has been churning out non-stop for the last several years.
