New greek on the block? Not the case for Alexander Tsotsos aka Gummihz. Since 2006, he's been steadily serving his unique mixture of house and techno through imprints like Mobilee records, Treibstoff and more recently Earthrumental music.
As a musically active teenager, Alex was fascinated with producing music since an early age. After a few years of classic guitar training and a couple of teenage garage bands, he was introduced to djing which instantly became his passion. Its been nearly 16 years since and now GummiHz is performing his diverse fusion of contemporary dance music for audiences worldwide. From north and south America to Japan and Europe, GummiHz has performed in clubs like the legendary The End in London, Sullivan Room in New York, Cocoon in Frankfurt, Priviledge in Ibiza and Watergate in Berlin, his city of residence.
A witness of the electronic music explosion during the mid nineties in England, Alex has spent many nights getting educated in the city's clubs and underground parties. During the latter part of the 10 years he lived in London, Alex started making his own parties in underground locations and was a regular at events like the infamous multivitamins parties in Shoreditch.
Drawing inspiration from different styles such as early NY house from the likes of Dj Pierre, Afrohead, Junior Vasquez to using elements from the width and breadth of the musical genres' spectrum, in his productions. His records have been acknowledged by all popular djs in the dance music scene worldwide. While gaining reviews and articles on publications in the likes of Groove magazine (DE), Wire magazine (US), Mixmag(UK) to name a few. Some of his productions have been licenced by djs like Danny Tenagia, Tiefschwarz, Derrick May and even John Digweed for mixed compilations on labels such as Fabric and Tommy Boy.
With a name standing for elastic frequencies, Alex's aim is to deliver tracks for the dancefloor through various production methods and on different styles ranging mainly between tech house and techno. After records like "Basic Elements vol.1" (Real Tone/2010)"Select and bounce" (Mobilee/2006), "Mind games" (Mobilee/2007), "Under the Sun" (Mobilee/2008), "High on percussion" (Earthrumental/2009) and a mix compilation for Mobilee's back to back series, GummiHz has offered his remixes for artists such as Anja Schneider (Mobilee records), Jerome Sydenham (Ibadan) and Ekkohaus (20/20 Vision, Morris Audio) amongst others. In 2009, Alex released his debut album titled "Sleepless nights", on Anja Schneider's Mobilee records. A serious step in establishing him as an important figure in the contemporary dance music community. More recently Alex founded his own label Claap in need of a platform to express freely his vision of modern dance music.
GummiHz is very commited to his craft and preserves a serious professional profile. Mainly focused on expression through developing his productions and reaching out to audiences through his passionate and dynamic dj performances.
