November 8, 2016 BY Nettwerk
Alyx’s sophisticated, emotional brand of dance music has garnered accolades around the world from the moment he dropped his debut breakout single “Close Enough (Feat. Maria Z).” “Close Enough” debuted with Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1 in the UK and Jason Bentley on the nationally syndicated KCRW radio show “Morning Becomes Eclectic” in the US. The song was added to the most influential chill and deep house playlists across multiple streaming platforms, reaching #25 on the iTunes’ Electronic chart, spending 14 weeks in rotation on SiriusXM’s Chill channel and clocking 3 million spins on Spotify. Partnering with Billboard to premiere, Alyx swiftly followed “Close Enough” with a high-profile remix for Delerium’s “Silence,” garnering “one to watch” status among leading publications like Mixmag, Your EDM, Dancing Astronaut and Magnetic Magazine. This same summer, Alyx lent his melodic productions to a remix of Caroline Pennell’s cover of Xavier Rudd’s signature track “Follow the Sun,” which gained the attention of eminent DJ’s such as Michael Woods, Don Diablo, and Tiësto, with the latter introducing the track to his radio audience of over 35 million across 77 countries.
As a classically-trained pianist, Alyx began his musical career early, leading theatrical productions at Manhattan’s prestigious LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts, otherwise known as the school that inspired multiple Fame films and television series, and later moving to Florida to attend the University of Miami’s Frost music business program. As the Director Of Special Operations and Programming at 1 Hotel in Miami’s South Beach, Alyx has great influence on the sonic culture of his city, curating events and special lineups for the hotel’s associated events such as Art Basel, WMC and Ultra.
Alyx’s first Nettwerk single “Memories of You (Feat. Srey Davi)” is out now. “I produce what I feel, and it doesn’t exist in one category; it lives comfortably between daytime chill and the club. At the end of the day, it’s more important that my music captures a moment and creates a lasting story within that space and time. I call it ‘soundtrack moments’ – when a song takes an ordinary experience and turns it into an unforgettable memory,” says Alyx. Listen to the track below.
Alyx is the latest addition to Nettwerk’s expanding label roster, which includes artists like Hermitude, The Veils, Passenger, Savoir Adore, Boxed In, Mr Little Jeans, as well as catalogue artists like Junkie XL, Ladytron, Delerium and Tiësto.
