In the lead up to his Brisbane stint, My City Life asked Alex to dip his hand into his record box and randomly select a handful of disco tracks – because Alex only ever has the best tracks in his collection anyway.

AFI Nominated. Celebrity. Artist. From the stage, silver screen, small screen or behind the wheels of steel, Alex Dimitriades defies boundaries in outlets of expression. In his different capacities as a craftsman, Alex takes hold of each channel to communicate to the audience his depths of feelings, emotions and connections. And as with all areas of artistry, talent is the currency, seeing a musical path carved around the world.
From playing behind belt-driven turntables, Alex has shared stages with a multitude of respected dance music purists from Roger Sanchez to underground specialists. With an enviable and rare hoard of vinyl carefully selected and amassed across the years, Alex has become a relentless collector of LPs. And as “The Boogie Monster”, Alex is an expert in classic disco, hip hop, funk and soul where DJing is not something Alex thinks about very much: it’s merely something he does. He is an ambient master when it comes to building soundscapes for the dancefloor.
When he hit Brisbane to play In The Name of Disco at Laruche, and Diggers Dozen at Brew Cafe & Bar, Alex was more than equipped to bring the funk to the dancefloor and unleash his special brand of rolling beats, undulating basslines and euphoric melodies. And in the lead up to his Brisbane stint, My City Life asked Alex to dip his hand into his record box and randomly select a handful of disco tracks – because Alex only ever has the best tracks in his collection anyway.
