Drawing inspiration from immensely varied sources and incorporating it into his own genre-bending sound, Alexandre Lavigne’s music defies easy classification. Going simply by Alexandre (pronounced “ah-lehk-SAHND”), this eclectic producer encourages his listeners to challenge the status quo of electronic dance music and embrace a fresh, future-minded sound that offers nods to hip-hop, dubstep, UK garage, grime, house, club, disco, footwork, drum & bass and more. Refusing to settle into a comfortable niche, Alexandre continues to explore the boundaries and intersections of the musical genres he loves, respecting tradition while boldly foraying into uncharted frontiers with each new song. His work has been released by celebrated underground labels like pioneering DJ and producer Plastician's Terrorhythm Recordings, as well as larger EDM juggernauts like Borgore's Buygore imprint.
Currently based in Austin, Texas, Alexandre is originally from Miami Beach, and his current style evokes a sound that could be described as Miami Vice meets Bladerunner in the ‘hood: futuristic arpeggios and cyberpunk basslines meld with shimmering neon synth lines, film score-worthy orchestral elements, and soulful retro vibes, often underscored by hip-hop influences and UK-style percussive grooves.
