Bio

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York DJ Alex Kayne started out as a mobile DJ spinning dance music in the mid 70's. His club DJ career began when he beat a multitude of other DJs, winning a turntablist "Battle of the DJs" mixing contest at the Night Gallery Discothèque in Brooklyn. Word on the street about the winner of this battle spread quickly and Kayne began DJ-ing in several local clubs.

Over the years, he has worked at various venues large and small in and around the New York City area. He is considered New York City's first ever hard rock/heavy metal club DJ.

Kayne came to the world famous Heavy Metal Venue L'Amour in 1979 and his residency there which began shortly afterward lasted on and off until the venue closed in December 2009. He is the venue's original metal DJ and its longest resident DJ. His raspy, booming voice and more importantly his unique brand of hard rock and heavy metal spinning style gave the venue its unrivaled personality, directly contributing to the venue's worldwide fame. He is widely credited as the first club DJ in New York to spin Metallica, Accept, Biohazard, Y&T, The Rods, TNT, Queensryche, Anthrax, Megadeth, Manowar, White Lion, Helix, Talas, Motorhead, Metal Church, Tygers of Pan Tang, and Slayer among many others, breaking and expanding their notoriety on the east coast. He is considered an influence by many younger area rock/metal DJs. His production company RockMachine Concerts© has presented many shows on the east coast featuring some of the most prolific up and coming hard rock/metal acts in the scene.
