Biography

What do you get when you marry industrial rock with house; crunchy guitars with repetitive beats; filtered disco with Bowie-esque space-pop? And just who would be adventurous enough to try and find out? It’s a question with one for an answer: Who Da Funk?

One day not more than a year ago, it all clicked for Alex Alicea. The 30-year-old had been a DJ since he was 14 it was his “biggest passion. If you’d tell me, “there’s a party eight hours away, you’re going to play for free, but it’s going to be a really good party, ” I would be there, ” he says. Finding so much fulfillment in DJing, Alex was ready for the next step. He took the advice of good friends Harry Romero & Jose Nunez and invested in production gear and began making tracks at home.

Alicea soon joined forces with another, almost literal Subliminal “brother” � Jorge “DJ Lace” Jaramillo, Romero’s cousin. As a prolific Jungle/Miami Bass DJ and producer in the early 90’s, Jorge “DJ Lace” Jarmillo co-produced the albums “Vicious Bass”, “Back to Haunt You” and “DJ Magic Mike & the Royal Posse” alongside his then partner, DJ Magic Mike. Both albums reached gold status and strengthened Jaramillo’s production abilities. Finding success with this sound was just tip of the iceberg for Jaramillo, as at the end of the nineties, he discovered a new interest in house music.
