Ah summer, the time for a fresh new anthem. You’ll find plenty when you pick up EDM producer Alex Moye’s new album, “All I Need,” which drops on June 16.

The Jacksonville native’s tracks are full of energy and positive vibes. “Dance music is something that brings a huge amount of joy and happiness to people,” says Moye. “The whole point of me starting this project was to add to the dance culture. I wanted something people could move to and have a good time with.”

And happiness is something you’ll feel from the album’s very beginning, starting with the utterly danceable “Love Me Better” and continuing through its 11 additional tracks. A standout is “All the Good Things,” which feels like love itself.

Moye is looking to play some summer events, which will be announced at a later date on his website. Until then, he’s looking forward to getting back out to experience his favorite Jacksonville haunts. Read on for his recommendations for your next trip to Florida’s largest city.

Jennifer McKee: Now that things are coming back (from the pandemic), what are you most excited to do again?

Alex Moye: The packed beaches! I’m so happy to have those days back again.

JM: Where is your favorite place to listen to music in Jacksonville?

AM: I love going up to events at the Seawalk Pavilion in Jax Beach. Good music right by the beach, and as soon as the event is over we hop over to the bars. The perfect spot.

JM: How would you recommend a visitor spend an evening out in Jacksonville?

AM: Normally I would guide my guests to either Atlantic Beach or Five Points for a more proper evening out on the town of good food, drinks, music and atmosphere. But if they want an evening of debauchery… beach bars.

JM: What’s your favorite record store in Jacksonville? 

AM: I used to spend a ton of money in CD Connection when it was still around (RIP 😔). I was actually just up at Yesterday and Today Records over the weekend browsing around and ended up getting a few records for my dad for Father’s Day. There were a ton of great gems in there for anybody in love with vinyl.

JM: You talk a lot about how dance music makes you happy. Where is your happiest place?

AM: My top spots are Bailey’s gym, Jax Beach Golf Club and PV Club. I really enjoy my alone time as well, so that’s usually when I throw on my headphones and make some music.
