Biography[edit]

A founding member of Planet Funk, having formed the band in the late 90s, Alex Neri also pursued a solo career and established an independent record label named Tenax Recordings.[1]

He started his career playing at the Alhambra, a nightclub in Sarzana owned by his father. Neri began his studio activity collaborating with Marco Baroni[2] and working on different productions such as the Korda project ('Move Your Body'[3]) and Kamasutra ('Storm In My Soul'[4]), all while releasing remixed productions for artists such as Club Freaks,[5] Annette Taylor,[6] Future Force,[7] Instant Funk[8] and Jestofunk.[9]

In 1998 Neri and Baroni launched their first single 'Happiness'[10] featuring Jocelyn Brown, which reached 5th place on dance charts in the US and 45th place in the UK.[11] At the same time, Alex Neri met and started collaborating with Gigi Canu and Sergio della Monica, which led to the establishment of Planet Funk.
