Alex Niggemann was born in Düsseldorf, Germany in 1984. He noticed very early on that playing the piano (which he had done passionately for many years) was not the route he would take to make it in the music biz.
Since he was a teenager, he was looking for new ways to express himself through music. Initially influenced by his brother´s taste he visited his first techno party, life has never been the same since.
At the tender age of 16 he knew which direction his future would take. He acquired his first turntables and mixer then converted his room into a provisional DJ studio. Very soon he started down the path of electronic music production.
While this transformation was taking place he DJ‘d under different aliases in several clubs in Düsseldorf and the surrounding area. After his high-school graduation in 2005 he moved to Berlin to study audio engineering and refine his knowledge in music production.
After some successful networking further DJ appearances in clubs all over Germany followed, this time under his real name Alex Niggemann. Soon, his first commercial release, a remix of Booka Shade’s awesome ‘Darko’ (Get Physical Music 2006) was subsequently released to great acclaim.
After completion of his studies in 2007 he concentrated on his music full time. In 2008, he had releases on labels such as Meerestief, Micro.fon and Moonpool, to name just a few. By the middle of 2008 he was snapped up by ‘Supernature Records’ the label run by British duo ‘Audiofly’.
His Black Rose EP was released in the spring of 2009 with more in the pipeline. Further releases on ‘Be Chosen’ and Nick Curly‘s ‘8-bit’ label will follow in 2009.Also remixes for Supernature and Thomas Schumacher, EPs for Supernature, 8bit and 2020Vision Recordings are fixed for the second half of 2009.
