Biography

SCOTTISH PRODUCER, PROMOTER AND DJ AL TWISTED (AKA ALASTAIR INNES) LIVES AND BREATHES HARDCORE! AL STARTED HIS CAREER IN 1999 WHEN AT THE AGE OF 17 HE ORGANIZED AND PROMOTED HIS FIRST TWO ‘TWISTED’ RAVE EVENTS FOR CHARITY, WHICH EACH BOASTED THREE DIFFERENT AREAS, SOME OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN THE BUSINESS PERFORMING AND RAISED OVER £5,500 FOR A GOOD CAUSE. THE EVENTS WERE A MASSIVE SUCCESS, AT A TIME WHEN HARDCORE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE DEAD IN SCOTLAND! TWISTED HAD MADE ITS MARK AND AL HAS NOT LOOKED BACK SINCE.

BEFORE EVEN THE FIRST TWISTED EVENT, AL’S LOVE OF HARDCORE FOUND HIM EXPERIMENTING WITH MUSIC PRODUCTION JUST FOR FUN ON HIS DAD’S HOME COMPUTER, AND A COPY OF AN OLD MUSIC MAKING PROGRAM CALLED ‘FAST TRACKER2’. AL’S FIRST TRACKS WERE RAW HARDCORE TECHNO, DOOMCORE AND SPEEDCORE. AL PLAYED OUT AT A FEW TIMES AT SMALL UNDERGROUND PARTIES, PERFORMING LIVE SETS CONSISTING OF ONLY HIS OWN MATERIAL.

IN 2004, Al TwistedS PRODUCTIONS STARTED TO FIND THEIR WAY TO VINYL, STARTING WITH UK HARDCORE COLLABORATIONS WITH JFX WHICH WERE RELEASED ON LABELS LIKE ‘QUOSH’, UNDERGROUND, ‘THINNCRISPY’ AND ‘NUKLEUZ’ AND AT THE SAME TIME MORE FRENCHCORE ORIENTATED TRACKS AND REMIXES WITH ROB DA RHYTHM WHICH WERE RELEASED ON’ NUKLEUZ’. THESE TRACKS APPEARED ON A NUMBER OF TV ADVERTISED COMPILATIONS. IN 2008 AL HAD HIS FIRST SOLO (HARDCORE TECHNO) VINYL RELEASES WITH APPEARANCES ON LIKE ‘IST’, ‘GGM RAW RECORDS’ AND ‘CHEEZE GRATERZ’.

IN 2009 AL TWISTED LAUNCHED A NEW INDUSTRIAL VINYL & DIGITAL LABEL CALLED ‘MOTORMOUTH RECORDZ’, AND ALSO STARTED EXCEPTING DJ BOOKINGS AND PLAYING OUT ON A MORE REGULAR BASIS PLAYING BOTH INDUSTRIAL AND GABBER SETS. MORE LABELS WITH ROB DA RHYTHM INCLUDING ‘DARKSIDE UNLEASHED’ (HARDCORE) AND ‘INFEXIOUS HARDSTYLE’ WERE BORN.

AL IS REGULARLY BOOKED TO PLAY AT ALL THE MAIN HARDCORE TECHNO EVENTS UP AND DOWN THE UK, RECENT BOOKINGS INCLUDE ‘HARDCORE HEAVEN’, ‘HARDCORE TIL I DIE’, ‘WESFTEST’, ‘SANCTUARY OUTDOORS’, ‘FANTAZIA’, ‘RAVERS ARE’, ‘PLEASUREDOME’, ‘HORIZON’, ‘QUARANTINE’, ‘VIBEALITE’, ‘NORTH’, ‘SECTION 18’ AND ‘RELENTLESS’ TO NAME JUST A FEW, AS WELL AS RESIDENCIES AT ‘DARKSIDE’ AND ‘IMPACT’. INTERNATIONAL BOOKINGS HAVE ALSO COME IN, SEEING HIM PLAYING IN NETHERLANDS ON A NUMBER OF OCCASIONS AND ALSO IN SPAIN.

IN 2012 AL KEEPS HIMSELF VERY BUSY WITH HIS EVENTS, HIS RECORD LABELS, BOOKING AGENCY ‘TWISTED ARTISTS’, PRODUCING FRESH NEW MUSIC AND PLAYING OUT FREQUENTLY.
