Kevin Alves would be hard pressed to deny the reality of destiny. As early as he could remember Kevin always wanted to be a musician and was involved with music from singing to starting his own band at age 15. “Music is the most intense way of expressing myself I’ve ever found. Alves’ influence comes from many styles of music. All eras and genres are fair game as his strongest inspiration comes f
rom music that evokes emotion.
Alves is currently working on his original music and sound design. He recently released a remix for Ultra Records of Ecotek’s “Into the night.” Also a release with Nadia Ali’s label, who Alves worked with for a remix of “Point the Finger,” which stayed on Beatport’s top 100 for several weeks, Look forward to Alves’ new productions and sample
cds coming very soon, and check him out in your hometown where he will be spinning at your favorite venues.

DJ // Producer // Musician Denver, Colorado, USA
I originally got my start in the Denver music scene supporting an entirely different genre of music than you may know me for. My love for playing the saxophone has given me to opportunities to travel literally all over the world. To speak about my envolvement in Electonic Dance Music would not be right without showing respect to the scene that originally cultured my love for playing and composing music. To all of my teachers, professors, mentors and peers that have taught me so much over the years, thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience of being a professional musician. You all mean the world to me -Aquilae
Aquilae's love for Classical and Jazz music prompted him to start composing in High School, and eventually led him to The University of Norther Colorado where he received his Bachelors degree in Music Performance in May, 2010.
Aquilae has always had a love for Electonic Dance Music. Originally inspiried by classic artists such as DJ Tiesto, Paul van Dyk, ATB, and Paul Oakenfold to name a few, Aquilae knew right away that EDM would always hold its place in his life.
Aquilae was always an avid listener of EDM, however it wasn't until he met a local DJ in Dallas, TX that he realized his passion for producing EDM music. Colt Smith was the original person who taught Aquilae the basics of working the decks, and producing EDM through Ableton Live. Aquilae's first gig was a tag team set with DJ Colt Smith at the famous Lizard Lounge in Dallas, Texas.
Aquilae moved back to Denver in the summer of 2011. By regularly attending the local clubs and nightlife hotspots, Aquilae was introduced to Brett Alden, owner of Exodus Productions. Brett booked Aquilae for most of his first couple of gigs in Colorado, and played a huge role in introducing Aquilae to other EDM lovers in the Denver dance music scene.
Aquilae is now a resident DJ for Exodus Productions in Denver, Colordao. He has several big plans for upcoming new tracks that will surely keep you on the dancefloor all night long.
