Alex De Ponti was born in Milan in 1979. Heavily influenced by the early House movement, Alex was exposed to rough and ready dance music from day one. Spinnin naturally became an obsession, and after a couple of years Alex’s musical diet started inevitably expanding and put him on the path to the extreme eclecticism he is reknown for today. In 2003, together with another italian dj, he founded VINYLBROKERS – the first italian source of wax completely focused on second-hand classics both as a record shop and as an internet store. In 2006 Vinylbrokers finally opened to the public as a walk in and browse record store – establishing itself as a distributor who retails to the public and so providing better value to all the Vinyljunkies out there. Alex is currently playing regularly in Milan at bar STRAF, spinning an eclectic selection of black music on vinyl only.
