Alex Franchini aka Livecat7 or Side (from the Sidekickers) was born in Belluno, a small town in the Veneto ( Italy ) 25/09/1980, dj producer and remixer is passionate about dance music since the late 80’s listening to his uncle while playing vinyl records of the time. Taking advantage of the ‘absence of the latter in his working hours, he began to try to find the first mix, with the first 90 years, progressive in its genre. At the end of the 90 switches to techno and trance until it starts to want to produce records in passing, as genres, from techno trance to get down to the present day where it is geared more for tech house, techno and progressive house. With the help of friends, with whom we recommend and discusses day after day for new sounds, care of the style and drafting of the pieces, he managed to make himself known and to cooperate with other European label as a DJ / producer & remixer.
In 2010 he won the contest “Adriano Alberti – Wang” organized by Boltongroove Records, with whom he has published two other tracks: ”Livecat7 – Sweet 89” and later appeared as a single in four compilations, and ”Livecat7 – I’m”.
In January of 2013 he founded with his collaborator Andy Woldman a new musical team called “The Sidekickers”.
2014 is the year’s most satisfying for Alex, where he found all his release supported by great DJs and producers like Marco Lys, Sonny Wharton, Robbie Rivera, Antony Nero, DONS, Kurd Maverick, Ltj Bunken, Alex Blanco, Roger Sanchez, Erick Morillo, Hoxton Whores, Anna Kiss, Robin Axford, Joseph Capriati, Jay Kay, X-Press 2, Fedde Le Grand, Stacey Pullen, Andi Durrant, Michael Paterson, Beltek and many more…and for his particular style in his music productions he was surnamed “the italian wonderboy” by the great Steve Stimpson.
