 In early 2015, Alex started to produce his own remixes and compositions largely tailored for Brazilian zouk dancers and has produced over 600 remixes/original tracks. Alex hopes to continue to grow his skills and share his works with the rest of the dance community with the aim of spreading joy and inspiring the love of music and dance to people around the world.
