Alex Franchini aka Livecat7 or Side (from the Sidekickers) was born in Belluno, a small town in Veneto ( Italy ) 25/09/1980, dj producer and remixer is passionate about dance music since the late 80's listening to his uncle while playing vinyl records of the time. During the last years of the 80's, taking advantage of the absence of the latter in his working hours, he began to try to find the first mix, and in the early 90's he finds his musical genre, that is the progressive genre. At the end of the 90 he switches to techno and trance until he starts to want to produce records in passing, as genres, from techno trance to get down to the present day where it is geared more for tech house, techno and progressive house.
In 2010 he won the contest "Adriano Alberti - Wang" organized by Boltongroove Records, with whom he has published two other tracks: ''Livecat7 - Sweet 89'' that got over 7000 Shazam and later appeared as a single in four compilations, and ''Livecat7 - I'm''.
2014 is the most satisfying year for Alex, where he found all his releases supported and played by great DJs and producers like Marco Lys, Sonny Wharton, Robbie Rivera, Antony Nero, DONS, Kurd Maverick, Ltj Bunken, Alex Blanco, Roger Sanchez, Erick Morillo, Hoxton Whores, Anna Kiss, Robin Axford, Joseph Capriati, Jay Kay, X-Press 2, Fedde Le Grand, Stacey Pullen, Andi Durrant, Michael Paterson, Beltek, Michael Woods, David Tort and many more...and for his particular style in his music productions he was nicknamed "the italian wonderboy" by the great Steve Stimpson.
From 2014 to today he was chosen to make remixes by artists like David Tort, Dan McKie, Paul Kennedy, Mennska, Denis Karpov and D.I.N.G.O. .
In 2014 he started mixing for various radio stations including Ibiza Live Radio, HoTL Radio and HeavensGate Deep, and then in 2017 he was chosen as a new resident dj at HeavensGate Deep Session, radio of the famous Alex M.O.R.P.H., Woody Van Eyden and the awared radio presenter, dj and producer Neil Moore.
