DJ, musician and fashion muse Alix Brown was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia by music-loving parents. She played in bands and collected records growing up, and was soon attracted to the music scene in Memphis, Tennessee. There she had a 4-year stint playing in a band, touring the world and running Shattered Records with Jay Reatard in Memphis. After that, Alix decided to make the move to NYC. She immediately got a job at Academy Records in Brooklyn and began to play bass in Golden Triangle. The band gained great success, winning Battle of the Bands at SXSW, which led to being signed by the Sub Pop subsidiary, Hardly Art, and the band landing a song in an international BMW commercial. After the band went their own ways, Alix decided to do something else with music. Having worked in record stores growing up, Alix realized she had amassed thousands of records, a vast digital music library, and quite the jaw-dropping wardrobe. With such an impressive arsenal of pop culture artifacts, she began to pursue her career as a DJ and Music Director. Since then, she has landed increasingly more high profile DJ gigs at Don Hills, Kenmare, Paul’s Baby Grand, The Standard Hotel, weekly parties with co-DJ Tennessee Thomas at Soho Grand, Roxy Hotel, Hotel Chantelle; and parties for the likes of Levi’s, Target, Surfrider Foundation, Jill Stuart, Ralph Lauren, Helmut Lang, Pamela Love, Eddie Borgo, Pam Hogg, Alexa Chung and many more. She also is the Music Director for the Soho Grand Hotel, Roxy Hotel, and Jack Austin’s, where she curates their music playlists that are all different and unique to each space, books DJs, and live acts.
With her carefully developed taste for vintage sounds and style, it’s no wonder that she now wields an encyclopedic knowledge of rock n roll and fashion history.
