Alex Pizzuti biography. Alex Pizzuti is a DJ/producer. He was born in 1995 in a small town in Calabria, a stunning region in Southern Italy. He was only 14 when he became aware of his talent. Alex started playing live in different clubs, also winning several music competitions as a young and emerging dj and producer. Leveraging on his natural musical instinct, he started writing and composing his first tracks together with local artists, who shared the same passion and love for music. His career took off in 2016, when he signed his first deal with one of the most influential independent labels in Italy ‘Smilax’, releasing his first music EP ‘Comfort zone’ recorded at Supersonic studio, also featuring Miss Julia, a well-known international singer. The EP got also remixed by Keejay Freak; this great producer remixes Lorenzo Jovanotti’s music, one of the most successful Italian artists. His tracks were also included in the official compilation of Universal music. Since then Alex never stopped playing as well as djing in a number of European countries, such as Germany and Poland, signing new deals with Dutch and Spanish labels. In 2017, he had an audition at the National Cinema Institute, based in Bologna, where he’s currently studying sound engineering, as he’s planning to get his at UCLA (Los Angeles).
