Locals: Alek Sane Interview

Who are you? How old are you?

Alexein Grech & Im 31 years old

What is your stage name?

Alek Sane

How many months/ years have you been Djing / producing?

My first experiments in electronic music kicked off through music production. I was only 10 to 11 years old when I found about this software called ‘Ejay’. This was software with a very good introduction where you just had to build and mix between ready-made loops and some pianos with cord progression generators. Then, at the age of 13, I started to go djing lessons from behind my parents back as they just wanted me to focus on my original musical instrument (drums). So basically, let’s say.. it been quite more than a decade, almost two haha

Why do you want to share your music?

For me, it’s the best way to express all my emotions and let people know who I am throughout that musical journey and hopefully, I inspire others to do the same…..

Mention an artist that inspired you to become a DJ/producer?

Jeff Mills! Amen.

Is there a local artist that you look up to and love to see play at events?

This is a very delicate question because there are a lot. Every artist has his own way on how to approach his musical adventure. To mention a few, I admire Owen Offset & Øberøn for their determination, Antidote & Etched for their love and passion and recently I discovered Krow, a multi-instrumental guy with a lot of creativity.
