Performing at Supercrawl, the arts & music festival headlined
by indie rock legends Spoon, would be impressive
enough. Doing that alone at the age of sixteen is something
else all together - but for DJ and music producer Alex
Gunby, it’s just another gig.
When performing in front of dozens of spectators, most
people would be visibly nervous but Alex appears focused,
concentrated. While the crowd dances and enjoys his music,
Alex is intently at work operating the soundboards and mixing
equipment in front of him. He says, “The best thing
about it is being on stage and playing my music and seeing
people dance to it and enjoy it… that’s a big part of why I do
what I do.”
As technology has advanced, it has become far easier for
artists and musicians alike to show their work to the world
and receive feedback. With websites like SoundCloud, music
artists like Alex are given the chance to upload, record,
promote and share their originally created sounds.
He first became interested in the notion of producing music
when got a recording and mixing program known as Abelton
and began to mess around with the software. “I started playing
drums and taught myself to play a bit of piano which
really helped shape my knowledge of music theory,” he continues.
As he got older, Alex began to take producing more
seriously and eventually one of his tracks was featured on a
Top 50 EDM (Electronic Dance Music) website. With that
accomplishment, followed by his first live gig at the age of
fifteen, producing music has become Alex’s main focus—
aside from school.
He hopes to continue producing music as a career after
graduating from Westdale, but if it doesn’t work out, he says
he hopes to, “go to school for Audio Engineering for either
live performances or even in a recording studio so that way
I’m still involved in the whole music industry”.
Highlights of his music career thus far have included;
“meeting new people, making new friends, being able to play
my music live and see people dance.” His gigs have included
performances at Art Crawl, Club 77, A Midsummer’s
Dream and the VIIIth day, an electronic music festival in
Hamilton.
At the age of seventeen, Alex has already made great strides
in his music career. Stay tuned for Alex’s new singles and
upcoming gigs! Check out more information about shows at

Alex Gunby premieres his latest single “Poseidon” with us, so brace yourselves for the change in pace. The big room producer has been in the GAME since the young age of 11, and proudly headlined VIII Festival in Hamilton as the city’s very first EDM festival ever last year, as well as a performer at the VIII stage for June Fest 2015. His music has the support of Sikdope, Victor Niglio, Zaxx, and Thugli.

Now, Poseidon brings us a track full of anticipation, and synths that belong on an outdoor festival stage. The build up is melodic while the drop creates a huge sense of space – hence the genre big room – and I can already imagine Alex mixing enthusiastically to the drop as he always does. It seems that no matter what he plays, his fans will always love it – even with this darker energy behind his current sound. His track has a lot of potential to be picked up by other artists in the scene, and there’s no telling where he’ll go from there!

"The past few months have been really stressful for me; moving to a new city, moving out of the house for the first time, starting college, going through exams and assignments, and at the same time, keeping up with my music career and everything that comes with it. Outside of school and music these past few months, I’ve gone through some of the toughest times in my personal life as well, but I won’t get too in-depth with that. With all the stress, comes a whole bunch of different emotions, one of them being anger, and that’s exactly what inspired this track. With all the anxiety, stress and anger that I was experiencing, I wanted to make a record that represents those feelings, and I feel like I’ve done exactly that with “Poseidon”. " – Alex Gunby

Keep at it Alex, we are stoked to hear more from you! Enjoy the free track.
