Profile
A student of classical and jazz guitar since the age of 12, Alek is also a versatile drummer and has performed and recorded as the lead guitarist for the successful indie groove-core band Kill by Inches.

Journeying into electronic music in 1993, he has DJ-ed at venues throughout New York and since 1999 focused on music production. With a sound that both spans accross genres and doesn't disappoint purists, his tracks have appeared on an array of labels, including Bush Records, Kazumi, ExtraBall, Gotham Grooves, PlanetNatus and others. His involvement in the music scene also includes co-founding the UNION series of Loft parties in NYC, as well as the SHIPWRECKED boat parties.

2003 proved to be a big year for Alek, with the Funk Matter EP receiving high praise and playtime from a number of artists including Carl Cox, Bryan Zentz and Agent Orange. The subsequent Adam Jay remix followed the trend, appearing on Carl Cox's Global Underground F.A.C.T. 2 Australia - mixed CD.

Having experimented with a wide range of genres, covering Techno, House and IDM, Alek's sound is a merger of musical styles. He likes to describe it as "the percussive drive of Tribal Techno and Tech-House with the experimental elements of IDM."

Whether he's DJ-ing or producing in his studio, Alek's long music history gives him the wide perspective necessary to blend diverse styles successfully, while maintaining a strong Techno edge.

FAVORITES: Thomas Krome, Hertz, Plasmatics, Samuel L Session, DJ CZR, and many more.



Look out for a fresh blend of organic techno and mangled electronics from Alek under the handle MONTAZ, with Vanilla String appearing on the upcoming Gotham City Records release and an EP of covers and originals soon to follow.
