Born on 13 December 2000 in Nantes, Alexandre is a French DJ/producer also known as Porter City.
Passionate about music, he is influenced by many artists such as Disclosure, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Calvin Harris, Moby and Duke Dumont.
Alexandre has been early attracted by music, from the age of 7 he was already participating at the parties and galas organized by his parents.
First he handled the lights show and later, the mix of music to make people dance.
Since the school was not too well suited for him, he devoted himself directly to computer-aided musical creation from the age of 13. Meanwhile he meets Cambia alias Romain, member at the beginning of the French hip-hop band Hocus-Pocus (also known as C2C dj’s), with whom he has worked on various projects.
Shy and reserved in nature, he quickly changed personality by passing behind the decks under the name of Porter City, in reference to his attraction for American culture.
At the end of 2018, he was accepted into a music production school, so he perfected his marketing skills and musical composition.
Later, Alexandre became the Label Manager and General Communication on an International label which had headliners artists like Carl Cox, Robbie Rivera, Ron Carroll, Joachim Garraud, Roger Sanchez...
In between, during a marketing trip to England, he was received at Defected Records, where he met several actors of this label.
His career as a Disc Jockey takes off, Porter City begins to perform everywhere, especially in Ibiza, and also in his city of Nantes, being present in the must-see places such as the Cantine Du Voyage, the Warehouse…
Today, his many experiences have led him to create his own House-oriented label, La Room Records.
