Amir Alexander began his DJ career in 1993. After solidifying his style and technique on the decks, he began producing in 1998 and dedicated himself to crafting tracks that were innovative and timeless.
Through the creation of Vanguard Sound in 2006, Amir and his partner Chris Mitchell created a platform where they can explore the relationship between art and human experience by putting out raw and gritty sounds that delve into the deeper, darker side of life and human emotion. Amirís self-imposed discipline together with his eagerness to be a student dedicated to learning the art of being a DJ has led to much success.
With several releases on major labels such as Plan B. Recordings, the launch of a second label called Annunaki Cartel and with his current international tour, Amir would definitely say his biggest success has been having his music resonate with so many people. After meeting him, it became more than clear that for Amir, there is no music without the people.
After making his presence felt in the Chicago club scene via a meteoric rise culminating a Dj watch feature in Chicago's 5 magazine, he completely disappeared and went beneath the underground to focus solely on advancing his production skills.
Soon after linking up with G. Marcell and Hakim Murphy he began to release gritty tracks that have been charted and played by underground Dj's world wide. His fourth release was the sleeper classic "Experience ep" a 4 tracker with Amir on side a, and G. Marcell on side b. Encouraged by the feedback, Amir then submitted tracks to New York city's Plan B Recordings. The rest is history as they say....... Recording under the name Amir Alexander and the pseudonym Guerrilla Soul! this cat strives to bring a raw and gritty modern spin on classic Detroit, Chicago, and New York underground sounds.
Amir Alexander gets deep. He is a legend through and through; with 20 years in the game and only one in the scene his ability to receive the recognition deserved was a mission accomplished and still rising. His dedication is a powerful force calmly exuding through his personality.
