Detroit Soundsystem

Alexander Schwank


Alexander Schwank was born in Innsbruck Austria, where multiple genres of music filled his childhood from artists like J Dilla, Miles Davis, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and Radiohead. He has traveled extensively developing the unique global sound that he brings to his DJ sets. Inspired by Detroit innovators past and present, such as Carl Craig, Moodymann, Norm Talley, Jason Kendig, and D Wynn, he has created a layered style of techno infused soulful house.

Having lived in many places including Australia, Cambodia, Fiji, Thailand, and England, as well as visits to Germany, Slovakia, France, and India to name a few, Alexander has landed in Detroit to focus on his career and soak up the flavor of the city that has developed many of the artists that he admires the most.

Alexander has been behind the decks in clubs from Thailand to the UK inspiring club goers around the world to celebrate each other and escape into his musical maelstrom of positive energy.
