Alex Joy, head honcho & founder of Joy Collective @thejoycollectiveworld & @rainforestpavilion, at the age of 14 he traded in his violin for a set of turntables. By age 16 he was playing the biggest stadium parties in his hometown of Victoria B.C., booked on the bill with the likes of Sasha, John Digweed, Kevin Saunderson, and Yuan Atkins.
Alex was a regular at the legendary Sound Wave Music Festival, held annually at Mussel Beach in B.C. Canada, where he played on the bill with Doc Martin, Dirt Crew, Thug Fucker and Matt Jonson to name but a few. His deep driving house sets have soul and a psychedelic edge. From festivals to after hours clubs, Alex is consistently being asked to play alongside some of the best in the game from Kenny Glasgow to Spirit Catcher, and Nick Warren to the Gorillas, with many in between Recently Alex played on the inaugural (re)set boat party “Overbored”, along side the talented Rampue and Most notably played the Robot Heart stage at Burning Man arguably one of the biggest stages for deep house on the planet.
Currently based in Bali he is an avid explorer and often spends time deep in the rain forests of Southeast Asia capturing sound clips of the creatures that reside there. Using these organic elements he infuses the music with exotic textures. With 19 years behind the decks, an everlasting adoration of music and a dynamic connection with the crowd that is in front of him, he continues to play with love, joy and an excitement that only expands through time.
