More about Al Kent & Million Dollar Disco
Al is no stranger to Manchester having guested over the years at Development, Northern Comfort, Yellow Reunion and a series of “Northern Disco” parties in 2007 – 2008 where Al resided over the Bozak alongside guests of the calibre of Dimitri from Paris, Faze Action, Kon & Amir, Rahaan and Wax Poetics’ Monk One.
As a DJ, the past 12 months have been exceptionally busy for Al. He’s headlined in Paris, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Italy, Bulgaria, Germany, Norway and all over Australia, as well as guesting at the likes of Melting Pot and Disco Deviance closer to home. He will join us at Corridor fresh from a headline Saturday night at the 25th Anniversary Southport Weekender.
Those who have heard Al DJ before know that he’s in his element in a small dark room, with a red light and a great sound system … so Corridor will be perfect for this very special five hour set.
As a producer, Al’s output is staggering. Over the last 15 years, he’s released somewhere in the region of fifty records on labels such as Kat, Azuli, Hed Kandi, Jisco, Epic, Zedd, Kojak Giant Sounds, All Out War, Stilove4music, Loft Supreme, Real Thing and, of course, his own Million Dollar Disco label.
But it’s his long standing relationship with legendary label BBE which has gained him worldwide success. He released a fully orchestrated disco album in 2008 with his Million Dollar Orchestra to international acclaim and plaudits from some of the worlds finest musicians, producers and DJs, followed closely by his own Secret Sounds album, two volumes of “Disco Love” and the colossal five disc/two double vinyl Best Of Disco Demands project. His remix CV is growing steadily with Katzuma, Tom Noble, Sandy Barber, Odyssey, Swag and Monofide already released and future projects for Philly International, The J’s, The DT6, Jean Wells and Tommy Stewart in progress.
If you think you’re going to hear a collection of 1970s chart cheese, think again. Al’s sound and style will take you back to the real underground vibe of the original New York and Chicago clubs, with a strong emphasis on uptempo disco music, seemlessly mixed, with most of it having been edited or remixed by Al, in keeping with the influence of pioneers like Walter Gibbons or Ron Hardy…
Expect to dance and expect to sweat…
Perhaps the vibe can be best summed up by Resident Advisor’s review of his Australian tour:
