He’s one of the biggest trance exports of Germany and now for over 12 years successful in the trance scene. In this time he produced over 100 remixes for artists like Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Faithless, ATB and Markus Schulz! Now it’s time for Alex to get remixed! 😉
His fourth studio album “Prime Mover” was one of our highlight releases in 2012 and on 26.07.2013 the remixed edition of this wonderful long player has been released. On “Prime Mover – The Remixes” you can find 21 interprations by the hands of Solarstone, Andrew Rayel, Shogun, Darren Porter and many more! Occasion enough for us for an interview with Alex M.O.R.P.H.! 😉
What’s the idea behind “Prime Mover – The Remixes”? Was this edition already being considered for publication of your album “prime mover” in the last year?
The idea is quite simple as described by the album title: we wanted to have every track on the Prime Mover album to be remixed by current and upcoming talents, both youngsters and already established artists. This idea was born earlier this year, as the original album turned out to be quite successful, and it had enough material on it that would have been great for a remix album. That’s why in the end we decided to do it!
The list of remixers looks very impressive. How is this compilation come about? Is it your personal choice or was that controlled your label?
It was a bit of both, but in the beginning I thought about my own wishlist of remixers and sent it to Armada, and they also had some ideas. But most of them are my personal choice, yes. Some remixers didn’t have the time to do a remix, but most of those on my wishlist actually did a remix, which is really great!
What has been your personal highlight on the album?
I do like all of them and like the album in all its colorness. There’s something for everyone and I love that. But right now I really enjoy the Will Atkinson Remix of “Prime Mover” a lot and it works extremely well on the dancefloors! But again, I like all mixes…which is why they are on the album 😉
The first half of 2013 is over. What was your personal highlight as a DJ and as a producer?
One of the highlights this year is of course the massive ASOT600 event in NYC at Madison Square Garden, no doubt about it. It was special in many ways! As a producer, I don’t know actually, haha! Lots of things happen all the time, not everything has been revealed yet etc… so let’s just wait and see what 2013 has to offer until December.
What are your plans for the rest of 2013?
There are some new singles on the way, I’m also working on a couple of remixes right now (e.g. “Petrichord” by Tyler Sherritt on Garuda), and there are some surprises left maybe. Or maybe not? Ha!
Which album do you hear currently in your free time?
To be honest I don’t have a particular album at the moment that I listen to, but I always listen to new stuff, also other genres than Trance (edm in general, pop, rock). Always great to hear other stuff as well!
Thanks for the interview and we wish you all the best for the future!
