Alexandr / guest DJ
OMOH, Persephone, and A C I D W I T C H are some of the projects Alexandr has been involved in sharing her forward thinking vision. By chance, but not by accident, she’s become a key driving force behind Budapest’s underground music scene and queer movement, and in rebuilding the seemingly lost bond between the two.
With OMOH approaching it’s third birthday and in a consolidate state as the foremost horny party for queerdos, it’s easy to forget a scene without it. OMOH is the primary responsible for giving the queer community a slot in the underground music scene a centre stage: a regular queer weekend night at Budapest’s main underground techno clubs. In booking artists, OMOH has become a household name in showcasing fresh, exciting queer talent at the brink of breaking through. Umfang (Discwoman), Roi Perez (Ostgut Ton), Octo Octa (Naive), Jackie House (Honey Soundsystem) are some of the artists OMOH has showcased. Though the primary focus is community, and by extension the dancefloor, most OMOH parties are without bookings or lineup.
In 2017 Alexandr joined forces with Yinna (Farbwechsel) to form the feminist DJ crew A C I D W I T C H. An outlet for an atmospheric, dark, spiritual sound, the High Witches regularly unleash seances of raw acid house and techno throughout Budapest’s hideouts and it’s main dancefloors.
Persephone is her most recent project born in collaboration with seasoned DJ Klayman. It’s purpose has been to showcase a diverse musical style ranging from underground house, classic disco to techno, focusing on female, queer, trans folks, people of color, underrepresented communities and their allies. Whether supporting up-and-coming local talent, showcasing exciting breaking through artists like Analog Soul (Uzuri) or Luz (Room For Resistance), and welcoming household names like Prosumer, Tama Sumo, and Lakuti, the party series has made waves in the underground as one of the key event series of the city.
As a DJ and curator she’s characterised by her impeccable selections. Constantly at the forefront of what’s current, she’s a relentless digger of fresh music. At the decks, she’s an exciting DJ capable of building stories through vibes and across genres. Always busy at the decks, her sets are flawless mixing at a high intensity. Her talent and work have been thoroughly noted by promoters, with invitations to warm up the dancefloor for the likes of Dan Shake and Roi Perez. Recently, she’s had her international debut at the Buttons party at ://about blank in Berlin where she played a four hour set.
