Having been introduced to dance music by his older brother whist in his early teens, Alpha Channel (Graeme Eglin) has been religiously into dance music ever since. Whether it be old school jungle and drum and bass or Detroit house. Getting a pair of 1200’s for his 18th birthday was the beginning of his DJ journey, Originally looking up to DJs such as Qbert and DJ Shadow and favoring broken beats, jazz and hip hop from labels such as Ninja Tune and Mo Wax he started out playing music that was very different in style to what he plays today.
It was whilst at university that he met some like minded DJs and began to put on nights playing music more suited for the club scene, playing a wide range of genres at various nights in clubs and bars. From hip hop sessions on Sunday afternoons to Friday night techno and breakbeat, His passion for music of all genres was evident in his mixing style never limiting himself to one style of music. Whether it be warming up for Tim Westwood or Sander Kleinenberg he could be counted on to get the heads bobbing and the dance floor moving. Whilst in his last year of university he met a friend who introduced him to the out door rave scene in the lake district which helped to cement his love of techno.
Relocating to London seven years ago he has continued to play gigs and rock house parties ever since. Today his musical interests lie in techno and tech funk with musical influences as diverse as Dr Dre to Elite Force or Charles Mingus to Aphex Twin. Having retreated from the party scene for the last two years to focus on teaching him self music production and working on converting his DJing style into the digital realm using Ableton live, he has been slaving away forging a sound that stays true to all the elements that he loves about music be that jaw clicking percussion and throbbing basslines or spine tingling keys and mind melting noises. In his sets he incorporates music ranging from deep house to techno and back to minimal with the odd loop from some of the more obscure parts of his music collection.
The future promises to be interesting, as a part of the CodeKontrol crew and under Mediakode management you can look forward to hearing more from Alpha Channel.
