A DJ since 1993, a producer since 1998 and a true student of music and culture, Amir founded Vanguard Sound in February 2006. He made his presence known in the Chicago club scene through a meteoric rise that culminated in a DJ special feature in Chicago’s 5 Magazine. Then he completely disappeared and went below the underground to focus solely on advancing his production skills.

Soon after linking up with G. Marcell and Hakim Murphy he began to release gritty tracks that have been charted and played by underground DJs worldwide. His fourth release was the sleeper classic “Experience EP,” a 4 tracker with Amir on side a, and G. Marcell on side b. 

Encouraged by the feedback, Amir then submitted tracks to New York City’s Plan B Recordings.

Recording under the name Amir Alexander and the pseudonym Guerrilla Soul!, this cat strives to bring a raw, modern spin on classic Detroit, Chicago, and New York underground sounds.
