Alex Barck’s rise to world fame was as a member of Jazzanova in the late 90’s. Also as the A&R manager at Berlin-based label Sonar Kollektiv he was, and still is, responsible for some of the finest ever releases, spanning the horizons from soulful pop and witty dance music.
His first gigs were at the Club Akbar Lounge followed by the infamous Delicious Doughnuts. Only ten years after his beginnings he has played at almost every renowed club as the likes of Tokyo’s Yellow to Zouk in Singapore, Trouw in Amsterdam, Goa in Madrid, Dachkatine in Zurich, Plastic People in London, Elephant Festival in Croatia, and of course the Berlin landmarks WMF, Cookies, Weekend, Watergate and Panorama Bar – just to name a few.
He has also played alongside an endless list of luminaries including but not limited to Francois K., Gilles Peterson, Norman Cook, Andrew Weatherall, Carl Craig and Basement Jaxx. As well as being a passionate, challenging and, oft times, revolutionary DJ for over twenty years, Alex Barck has also worked as a selector, compiling several acclaimed and trendsetting series (Secret Love, Computer Incarnations etc.). He hosts a number of radio shows on different German radio stations and is also revered for his remix work.
As of 2011 he and producer Christian Prommer have been recording together as Prommer & Barck (Derwin Records) and have been touring as a club/live act all throughout Europe. So busy is his schedule and so explosive is his constant creative output. There’s probably only one leitmotif to his career: A deep, honest and never ending love for music.
