M.U.M.-Miami Underground Movement brought to you by Rod B. and Alvaro Garfunk.
ALEX D'ELIA SHORT BIO
Alex D'Elia is born in Riccione, the main center of the italian club scene... He got his passion for music listening hours and hours of his sis records, leading him to be a dj at the age of 13, and won his first dj scratch competion prize at the age of 15, while was entertaining people in small clubs around his area.a
In the meanwhile Alex's passion for music got so bigger, that drove him to built his first midi home studio in his own small room, and from this “small world” came the idea of his first cut project in collaboration with a close friend: P.F.Z "Love into the Future", released on the famous swiss compilation: DJ Energy Parade. Then he knew Andrea Doria and they have begun a collaboration on very different projects, like Avalone One "La onda del ritmo" (The Rhythm Wave) with Ramirez vocals. Another one was Atlantis Ita "See you in the next life", having a great acknowledgment working with Age One, Dino Lenny's U.K. based label. These records had a big room in clubs and was also published on the Pete Tong and Fat Boy Slim's Millenium compilation. Then Alex have produced many other projects, the most famous one is "Isn't life wonderful?", released on IDJ. The song it went in a short time a big room anthem (mostly in the english clubs) and was immediately published on the Ministry of Sound compilation. Constant experimental research, passion for every kind of music and curiosity for samples digital manipulation drove him to build a personal project called Loose Headz.
In the last few years, he is continued to work close to close, cheek to cheek with Andrea Doria, releasing “Jumping Jack” and presenting the first single together called “Arsenico E.P.” both released on BluFin.

La mia carriera o se così si può chiamare inizia nel 1996, partecipando ad una gara di dj presso l'allora discoteca "imperiale" di Tirrenia, mostrando delle buone capacità e piazzandomi con un buon terzo posto...
Ma l'approdo vero e proprio con il pubblico di un vero locale nel 2000 come resident all'Insomnia di Ponsacco (PI),lavorando con artisti del calibro di Paolo Kighine, Thomas T, Francesco Zappalà, fino a Gianrico Leoni, Mario Scalmbrin,Frankie Knuckles, partecipando anche ad una data "Syncopate" con i migliori dj della scena musicale italiana e non e collaborando con il gruppo Factory art a varie serate nel panorama toscano.
L'esperienza Insomnia solo due anni ma serve a dare visibilità al mio nome, nonchè a maturarmi tecnicamente.
Nel 2003 alla corte del Kama Kama di Lido di camaiore con il quale viene fuori anche qualche data in Fortezza da basso (FI) e Liberty a viareggio.
Dal 2005 sono free-lance, ho deciso di cambiare genere musicale,passando dalla techno pura (Insomnia), all'hard house (Kama Kama più varie collaborazioni), fino alla deep house ed inoltrarmi alla Tech house e downtempo, con maggiori stimoli dal lato musicale e tecnico, ma cambiando il mio pubblico, cercando palcoscenici più piccoli, ma dove viene apprezzata di più la mia musica.
Attualmente collaboro con il Frau Marleen di Torre del lago (LU) più Freelance.

M.U.M.-Miami Underground Movement brought to you by Rod B. and Alvaro Garfunk. This week M.U.M. brings you Andrea Doria from Ravenna, Italy.
ANDREA DORIA is 33 years old and lives in Ravenna (famous of its Roman mosaics), close to Bologna, in Italy. At the tender age of 8 his father bought him his first analog synth and since then he realized that this sound is going to be part of his DNA. At the age of 16, he began to develop a passion for computers and he became a programmer. At the arrival of the first 8/16bit computer he started earning a living composing soundtracks for videogames, and also for some Italian software companies, simply using the synth processors (SID/Commodore64) and language machine. Since then Andrea's artistic knowledge developed with a powerful influence of some eclectic artists from the seventies like Klaus Schulze, Richard Wahnfried, Chris and Cosey and Edgar Frose. In the 90s he was completely blown away by the house scene and decided that DJing was going to become his career. He was fascinated by the way these DJs alchemists used to mix sounds and cultures at the same time and created such a big interest in the booming Dance scene. In December 2003, Andrea thought that only by having his own record label would help him in being artistically free in his productions,and "Ready 2 Rock Music" was born. A year later, after the huge success of 'Bucci Bag' started to fade away, success reached after a 8 years long collaboration with his friend Dino Lenny, Andrea decided to look into a new direction and find new ways to push his artistic boundaries and took a year off music production and started to get in the field of 3D art visuals, Creative Thinking and Occult Studies. With his new philosophy of life, "NOT ONLY A DJ", Andrea with the AUM brother ANANDA BOSMAN and 432 Hz crew, is researching, promoting and financing the science of sound frequencies and instruments Tuning to reach the perfect alchemical and AUM-harmonic coherent holo-vibe for the human holo-body.
