Amir Alexander (Vanguard Sound)

Agent: Ben

A DJ since 93. A Producer since 98. A true student of the music/culture. Amir founded Vanguard Sound in February 2006. After making his presence felt in the Chicago club scene via a meteoric rise culminating a Dj watch feature in Chicago’s 5 magazine, he completely disappeared and went beneath the underground to focus solely on advancing his production skills. Soon after linking up with G. Marcell and Hakim Murphy he began to release gritty tracks that have been charted and played by underground DJ’s worldwide. His fourth release was the sleeper classic “Experience EP” a 4 tracker with Amir on side a, and G. Marcell on side b. Encouraged by the feedback, Amir then submitted tracks to New York city’s Plan B Recordings. The rest is history as they say.......

This artist has be steadily gaining attention for his numerous and well received EP’s on record labels from Chicago, New York, London, and Frankfurt with releases such The Gutter Flex EP on Steve Mizek’s Argot, Outsider Music on Sascha Dive’s Deep Vibes Recordings, the Everybody’s Beautiful EP on Jamie Russell and Alex Jones’s Hypercolour sub label HYPE LTD, and his own Chicago based label Vanguard Sound. A 20 year veteran Vinyl DJ, Amir’s skills behind the decks are formidable.

Recording under the name Amir Alexander and the pseudonym Guerrilla Soul! this cat strives to bring a raw and gritty modern spin on classic Detroit, Chicago, and New York underground sounds.
