Experimental DJ Alex Celler will groove at Beatport Lounge
Thessaloniki, the second-largest city in Greece, is not one you automatically associate with electronic music. However, that's where Alex Celler (aka Alexandros Berdos) saw such stars as Juan Atkins and Jeff Mills in the late 1990s, and after Celler moved to London six years later, his love affair with tech-house was complete. He's since spun in the venerable London nightclub Fabric as well as high-profile venues in Moscow, Amsterdam, Berlin and Ibiza, throwing down a minimal-tinged mixture of rare crate finds and cutting-edge tracks that have been supplemented lately with his own experimentations behind the mixing platforms (Celler's a prolific producer, as well). As much he might experiment, though, there's one thing he always keeps at the forefront of his mind when he's entertaining the masses, and that's a steady, danceable groove. He'll be entertaining the crowd in Beta's Beatport Lounge on Friday, December 7.
