At the age of fifteen Alex Niggemann‘s older brother took him to a techno party in Düsseldorf which was a turning point for the young musician.
Pointing him away from the sometimes limiting discipline of classical piano and towards the world of electronic music. Since then, residencies in his home town grew to a move towards Berlin and all that great creative city had to offer.
Alex found work as a studio assistant to DJ T, running errands, capturing vinyl, mixing tracks and archiving records. This led to fellow Get Physical stalwarts Booka Shade discovering they had a promising producer in their own ranks. A lauded remix of Booka Shade’s “Darko” followed on a vinyl only release alongside Tiefschwarz and Radio Slave.
After finishing his engineering degree things began to snowball for Alex in 2008, during that summer he was signed to Supernature the home of UK duo Audiofly. They released the Black Rose EP in 2009 followed by critically and commercially successful releases on 8bit charting highly in many end of year lists.
Gigs across the globe followed and in the spring of 2010 he launched his Soulfooled label in the aim of responding quickly to artist needs and creating a platform for artists to release music quicker. The music represents Alex’s standards across old school disciplines of Chicago and Detroit orientated sounds.
