Alexandre Cortez aka Ashnaia was born in Switzerland in 1983 and live in Portugal for many years where he met very good psytrance artists like Mind Manipulation,

Audialize/Kompulse, Suria and more

Even back then he was very much connected to music since he comes from a family of talented musicians. Very soon he started to develope his own talent by the use of his dad's computer. Despite the technological slowness of his machines, he was able to learn most of the fundamentals. A few years on in 1999 he was old enough to start following other artists and he start going to parties and spending time in studios.

Soon he learned the Portuguese way psytrance is made and it has just taken on from there. He has a very strong sense of melody and harmony and his music is therefore capable of taking us back in time and help us remember how the music was also cool back then. Alex now resides in Ibiza, where his contact with the scene there has refined his music and transported it into actuality with new synths and wicked basslines
