As a DJ, producer and label boss, Berlin’s Alex Niggemann’s career has been instrumental in the continued development of underground techno. His ever-restless creativity and desire to build a platform for music that defines the deeper side of the electronic spectrum, led Alex to launch his very successful label, AEON in 2013 – an imprint which has gone on to play an integral part in building Alex’s impressive repertoire of releases to this point and beyond. His aim for the label is to build a representative artistic platform that mirrors the peak time DJ sets that he plays, referencing the spirit of classic, timeless house and techno and updating it for the future.
Now well on the way to becoming an established underground label, the focus for 2016 is the continued growth of this already hyper-successful imprint with a flurry of releases from the underground’s hottest new talents. Beyond the music, Alex has also launched an impressive event series under the AEON moniker, already selling out shows at Rotterdam’s world renowned Transport, Watergate and further in Milan, Barcelona and North Africa. Followed up by confirmed dates throughout Europe’s clubbing hotspots – London, Berlin, and Amsterdam as well as an already stacked personal diary with tours confirmed for Europe, North Africa, The Far East and Australia.
Add to this the release of his own club and radio ready tracks via Aeon and beyond – 2016 is the year that Alex Niggemann breaks through to another level of artistry and becomes one of the underground’s major player.
Known for boundless energy, a formidable work ethic, a love of musical diversity and undisputed, exceptional artistic talent, have already seen Alex’s global profile grow at an exponential rate. A classically trained pianist who gave up the ivory keys to follow his technological dream, his constant flow of critically acclaimed releases since first breaking ground in 2006 have seen him rise ever upwards and will continue to do so throughout his illustrious career. His ability to fuse the best of both old and new influences, to create an entirely new sound that leaves behind rigid definitions, is the mark of a true visionary.
