Biography

Language: English

The main man behind one of the world’s leading electronic labels, the quality renowned “Ready Mix Records”, knows no compromise when it comes to perpetuating musical excellence, authenticity and ingenuity. As the founder and one half of the production duo, Beat Factory, The Suppliers, Harlem Knights and Soul Collective, Big Al has unleashed his musical talent with originals and remixes on great labels such as GU, Baroque, Ministry of Sound, Aenaria, USB Digital, Sick Watona, Nightshade Music, Outta Limits, AlterImage, Acryl Music, Soulman Music, Nightbird Records, Grouper Recordings, Dutchie Music, Vapour Recordings, Outside The Box Music, Bad Pony Records, Klang Gymnastik and many more…

His tracks are played and loved by Sander Kleinenberg, Nick Warren, Roger Sanchez, Angel Moraes, Behrouz, Desyn Masiello, Hernan Cattaneo, Jaytech, 16Bit Lolitas, Eddie Amador, Kasey Taylor & Demi to name but a few. He has remixed tracks for Stan Kolev, Shiloh, Ricky Ryan, Tone Depth, J&M Brothers, Sendos Fuera, Chriss Ronson, Mastercris, Helly Larson, Lonya and Re-Zone among others. Thanks to his technical savvy and artistry in the studio he was the personal programming & sound engineer for Angel Moraes (Hot N’ Spycy, NYC), and mastered promo DJ mixes for club Stereo which included Frankie Knuckles, David Morales, Hector Romero, Chus & Ceballos and a great deal more.

His studio talents are incontestable, but he is perhaps best known as a master behind the decks; an up-lifter, an inspirational educator and a creative visionary when it comes to DJing. He was selected as one of Montreals Top Beat Masters in the “Hour Magazine” and won a JPF Award in 1999 for the best song on a mixed compilation. But these marks of recognition are pale compared to the actual experience of being on one of his dancefloors. His current residencies include B018 Beirut, Circus Montreal, Cubes Abu Dhabi, Pacha Marrakech and previously 5 years at Stereo, Montreal. He hosts the global editions of the Ready Mix Sessions events (Beirut, Miami, Montreal, Abu Dhabi, Amman, Marrakech) along with the internationally broadcasted radio shows and podcasts. He has played all over the world from L.A. to London, New York to Ibiza, Dubai to Miami, Beirut to Toronto and around. His vibe is diffused universally across barriers of language and cultures. His most recent appearances include the Renaissance Event in Beirut with Satoshi Tomiie, The Creamfields Festival in Abu Dhabi 2009 & 2010 with David Guetta, Sasha, Sebastien Leger, Marco Carola, Erick Morillo, Deadmau5, Underworld, Laid Back Luke and Calvin Harris, the Circus Event in Beirut with Steve Lawler and The Gatecrasher event in Beirut along with Anthony Papa.

Always carrying a bag of fresh beats, BiG AL is coming soon to a dancefloor near you…
