Founder of Hott Records and Black Vinyl Records. Veteran DJ, originally from London. One time ECHOES magazine journalist, Kiss FM producer and promoter/resident DJ at the long running Soul Movement club in London's Chinatown.

Currently in semi retirement in the Caribbean, Alan spends his time whittling spoons from the trunks of fallen coconut trees, growing some of the sweetest mangoes known to humanity and perfecting the art of around the wicket reverse-swing to the left-hander.
Most of the Black Vinyl releases can be found if you can be arsed to look for them.
