Alex Monster a.k.a. Sandra Sauger

Alex Monster aka Sandra Sauger, apart from pushy nasty look rhythm, also emphasises more agressive & "industrial" sounds.

 

Born in 1984, showed interest for music in early childhood. After finishing piano in Primary music school, she played drums and bass guitar in punk band. 2000. she became techno lover and 2004 started with practicing on decks and CDJs. Ever since the beginning of her DJ career, she's been supported by famous local DJs, who shaped up her technic & made her taste in music more sophisticated.

 

Her favourite genre is German underground mnml and she wants to stay undergrond DJ! Last two years she uses strictly Ableton Live for mixing and production, because it provides more possibilities and chance to experiment with weird sounds.

 

She worked with the most popular Serbian DJs&Producers (Fakir noise destruction,Boza Podunavac,Sun, Marko Nastić, Dejan Milićević, Lale, Marko Vukovic, Goya & Natasha, Vladimir Aćić, Daniel Alexandar, Kobaya,Vlada Machar,Car Z,Nikola Grebovic,Milosh Pavlovic….), in regional clubs and festivals in Serbia,Vojvodina,Croatia,Slovenia,Bosnia&Herzegovina,Montenegro (Plastic, Andergraund, xLagoom, Energija, Amnesia, Bastion,Exit 07,Exit 08,Sombor fest….) and as support to foreign colleagues (Gregor Tresher,Mikael Stavöstrand, Dino Psaras, Cave, Mulattos…)

 

She's been officially recognized as "Exit 2007 Breakthrough artist". With Staffan Sladik she signed track Odostraga for Traffica Rec, which is released in Soulfood VA as well. Thanx to this, they performed at Traffica Showcase at Urban Bug stage at Exit 008. 2008 she joined FEMALE:PRESSURE organization, and 2009 Artefekz Muzik and other labels. She is aiming to show herself out, in underground parties and clubs! Her favourites are Contakt crew, M_NUS, Gaiser..s bass lines and Houle..s synths and vocals. Marc Houle..s music is her biggest inspiration, reflecting her own trips, which is obvious in her sets, with lot of Marc..s tracks, accapellas, samples, loops…

She played double sets with him at several festivals and events, in and nearby Vienna. The biggest indoor festival she was spinning at was The Braintribe, a 3-day event hosting 31 international dj guests of trance-techno-house&groove music (@ Kato Eventhall, Vienna).
