Holosound is Noah Becker and Alex Fish. Based in Brooklyn, New York, the duo.s influences range from classic acts such as Kraftwerk to modern heavy-hitters Tiefschwarz, Jamies Zabiela, and John Digweed. They also hold a special place in their hearts for anyone who can take a moody vocal and twist it into a tech-house banger. Their productions, as do their DJ sets, strike from all angles, with smatterings of electro, tech, and progressive house.
Alex has a keen ear and sense of direction for tracks and live sets he began cultivating after a trip to Israel in 1993. After honing his DJ skills at Trinity College in Hartford, CT at both local venues and college events, Alex traveled to Europe for the summer. While in Amsterdam, he was asked to spin back-to-back shows at local nightclub, TIME. One of the clubs residents, Danny D, had met Alex at a local record store. Upon his return to the U.S., Alex relocated to Los Angeles, where he quickly secured a summer residency at popular after hours club, Avant Gardens. The momentum from this successful residency led to a number of other gigs at venues such as North, 9000 Lounge, and The Belmont Supper Club, as well as appearances at UCLA.s legendary Alice in Wonderland parties. Alex expanded his reach within California with several appearances at Euphoria Dreams. Edge parties in San Francisco, and also played alongside Dave Dresden (of Motorcycle and Gabriel and Dresden) at Los Angeles. Toro Club.

Alex.s discerning and critical ear made him the ideal collaborator. Their musical connection was instant, and Alex moved to NYC in the fall of 2004 to take this budding partnership to the next level.

As they enter the second half of 2005, both Alex and Noah look forward to broadening their reach within the house scene and producing tracks that last for more than the blink of an eye.
