Bio

Alex Merrell is truly about the music, making her one of the most sought after DJs for high profile events and top venues internationally.  She has been called upon to create the right vibe for the best nightclubs, hotels, lounges and countless events and has performed with international superstars in front of hundreds of thousands of people around the world.

Raised in Vancouver, Canada by artist parents, Alex pursued dance, theater and music from a young age.  In 2007, she moved to Los Angeles to work in the music industry.  The following summer she bought her very first DJ setup and soon after met DJ Mark Luv (The Pharcyde), who became her mentor.  It only took a few months for her to go from playing local hotspots around LA to being recognized on Fox News and opening for world renowned DJs AM and Skribble, propelling her to take part in the closing ceremonies when her hometown hosted the Olympics.  She’s been living on a plane ever since, sharing her passion for music across the globe.

Alex has DJ’d events for global brands such as Mercedes Benz, Unicef, Disney, W Hotels, Le Meridien Hotels, Thompson Hotels, Dove Beauty, TV Guide, and Universal Music.  She regularly spins at annual music and film festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Toronto International Film Festival.  A favorite amongst the fashion crowd, she has played events and runway shows for the likes of Dior, Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Armani, Escada, Zara, True Religion, Mackage, Guess, Vogue, Saks 5th Avenue, Harper’s Bazaar and Marie Claire.  Alex has provided the soundtrack for parties and photo shoots for clients such as Miley Cyrus, Leona Lewis, Selena Gomez, Rachel Zoe, and the casts of Pretty Little Liars, Dancing with the Stars, and The New Girl.  In addition to a packed list of US clubs and events, she has electrified packed venues in over 20 countries.  Alex is UK artist Taio Cruz’s Official DJ and has toured with him domestically and internationally, playing at The American Music Awards Pre Show, Jingle Ball, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Alex has been featured by numerous press outlets internationally and made appearances in music videos, commercials and campaigns for the likes of Herve Leger, The Outnet, Sony headphones and California Tourism. Her travel and culture coverage on her newest endeavor VagabondBlog.com was recognized by Societé Perrier, and she is now one of their contributing writers.

Bio

DJ MICHELLE PESCE grew up in Youngstown, Ohio with a deep love for 80s & 90s hip-hop and pop. During her burgeoning career in personal publicity at the entertainment PR firm Wolf-Kasteler, she worked with some of the top actors and musicians in the world. Pesce attended Woodstock ’99 and was moved by the energy created when you mix some of the world’s best musicians and 200,000 fans.  It was over that 3-day experience that she was inspired to start DJ’ing and soon after bought a set of Technics turntables to teach herself the craft. A year later she was introduced to DJ Spinderella (Salt-n-Pepa) who served as a mentor and helped launch her into the LA hip-hop scene. In 2004, Pesce made the tough decision to leave her reputable publicity career and focus on DJ’ing full time.

From playing old-school hip hop party jams to rocking A-list crowds at events for the Academy Awards, Golden Globes and multiple film festivals, she is one of the most in-demand DJ’s in the country. Her career continues to grow as she routinely performs in Mexico, France, Spain, Canada, Kenya and is a staple in the Hollywood Event Scene. She is also the only DJ to ever spin 5x at music’s biggest night – the Recording Academy’s Official Grammy After-Party. Pesce’s presence in Hollywood even landed her a gig playing herself on “Entourage” and performing live on the #1 national morning show, “Good Morning America” multiple times.

Pesce mixes the flavor of hip hop with rock, electro, funk and pop. She regularly spins for top tier clients such as Instyle, GQ, W, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Glamour, Marie Claire, People, Entertainment Weekly, HBO, Paramount, Fox Searchlight, Warner Bros, Viacom, NBCUniversal, Audi, Google, Motorola, Samsung, Soho House West Hollywood, The Toronto Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, The Clinton Foundation, Women In Film, LAXART, Cadillac, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Saint Laurent, Marni, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Vera Wang, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Tod’s, Club Monaco, BCBG, 7 For All Mankind, Levi’s, H&M, Puma, Nike, UTA, CAA, WME and private parties for numerous actors and musicians.
