Alex Merrell is truly about the music, making her one of the most sought after DJs for high profile events and top venues internationally. She has been called upon to create the right vibe for the best nightclubs, hotels, lounges and countless events and has performed with international superstars in front of hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
Raised in Vancouver, Canada by artist parents, Alex pursued dance, theater and music from a young age. In 2007, she moved to Los Angeles to work in the music industry. The following summer she bought her very first DJ setup and soon after met DJ Mark Luv (The Pharcyde), who became her mentor. It only took a few months for her to go from playing local hotspots around LA to being recognized on Fox News and opening for world renowned DJs AM and Skribble, propelling her to take part in the closing ceremonies when her hometown hosted the Olympics. She’s been living on a plane ever since, sharing her passion for music across the globe.
Her in-depth musical knowledge, unrestricted by genre or era, and her exquisite mixes have gained her praise and admiration from both club-goers and industry professionals. Her style is distinct yet tailored to the room, influenced by electro, soul, motown, house, dance, hip hop, 50s, 60’s and indie rock, 80s, top 40, lounge and world music.
