In 1989 Alan Thompson was just another face in the crowd at the many raves and underground clubs in and around London. That is, until he bought his first set of decks. Inspired by the new sound of house music that was emerging, Alan started experimenting at home. Within months of teaching himself what a cross fader was for, he was offered residencies at two of the most legendary clubs in the world – Trade and DTPM. The rest, as they say, is house history. As an International DJ, Producer, and Broadcaster, Alan has made his mark on the finest clubs in the world, has platinum and top 40 singles and albums around the globe, hosted a variety of radio and TV shows and has been a DJ in the skies for Virgin Atlantic – presenting the in flight dance show. Since his arrival in Australia Alan has played at many of the top clubs including Tank, Home, Laundry Sydney, Room 680, One Love and Seven Melbourne, The Family Brisbane, Discovery Darwin, Halo and Syrup Hobart, Heaven/HQ Adelaide, Vegasmode and Frisk Perth and Fiction Canberra to name a few as well as headlining alongside Fatboy Slim for New Years Eve 2005 on Bondi Beach attracting over 10,000 people and with Carl Cox for New Years Eve 2006 at Luna Park Sydney.
