Alex Gaudino started his music biz career in 1993 in Flying Records and UMM.
In 1998 with the support of the famous Italian record company TIME, Alex founded his own label, RISE Records and soon had a string of hit records like The Tamperer and Black Legend (Alex is the only Italian A&R with two # 1’s in the UK sales chart ) and Robbie Rivera’s “Bang”, thanks to which he got a nomination as best European A&R at the European Music Awards in London in 2000.
He produced two singles in 2003 with Crystal Waters
and Ultra Natè
. “Destination Unknown” was played by all the key deejays, including Pete Tong
and Judge Jules
and reached the top of the UK Buzz charts.
There is Alex’s touch behind Supacupa and Sambatucada (Gaudino da Costa) and his remix of “Is it cos I'm cool” by Mousse T
left its mark on the summer of 2004. In 2005 Lil' Love “Little Love” was played by Pete Tong in exclusive at Nikki Beach
in Miami during WMC 2005. The record came out on Positiva
in UK and reached the top of the club charts; in 2006 Alex remixed Pete Tong & Chris Cox (Deep End), Mousse T (Horny) and James Kakande
(You You You). Ministry of Sound
released his single “Reaction” and his project Blue Lipstick “Head o ver Heels” came out on on Hed Kandi.
But the real gear-change came in 2007 with “Destination Calabria, an artful combination of Crystal Waters’ vocal with Rune’s Calabria. The track dominated the singles sales charts in UK and all over Europe launching Alex’s career as an international dj.
In 2008 he repeated the feat with another massive crossover hit, “Watch Out”, featuring the singer Shena.
His track“I’m a DJ” went to the top of the UK club charts.
There is an album, “My Destination”, in the pipeline.
His new single, a cover of the Joan Jett classic, “I love rock n roll” is out Bob Sinclar
’s label, Yellow, in France, and many other territories. It has become a hit on Beatport and went top 10 in the official UK club chart, still prior to official release. It’s a massive radio hit in France.
Alex has also remixed tracks for The Feeling
, among others, consolidating his reputation as one of the finest craftsmen in the business when it comes to bringing a little champagne to the dancefloor.
Current collaborations include, among others, Simply Red
and Russia’s leading dj-producer, DJ Smash
Alex’s dj sets are appreciated all over the world, from Moscow to Montreal, from Paris to Rio. As someone once said, “Italians do it better”!
