GLASGOW (Million Dollar Disco / BBE records)
Warehouse party - Sat 9th July
Al Kent brings the "Disco Love" in his debut Sydney performance.
Al Kent is a man that lives and breathes disco music. Born in Glasgow in the late 60s, he has collected disco, northern soul, funk and house music since the early 80s, and has amassed one of the world’s largest collections of rare disco. This has translated into amazing DJ sets which have taken Al all over the UK and Europe with appearances at the main room at Southport Weekender, Joey Negro’s Z Records party in London and at Respect is Burning in Paris with Dimitri from Paris.
In 2008 Al released his acclaimed “Better Days” album on BBE with his live band the Million Dollar Orchestra and in 2009 released his own “Secret Sounds” LP. Al has released over 60+ edits on Jisco, KAT Music, StillLove4Music and his own Million Dollar Disco imprint, with more to follow. BBE Records also commissioned Al to compile their Disco Love compilation series, focusing on uncovering rare disco and soul. After a sell out Volume 1, Volume 2 was recently released and he is ready to spread the Disco Love in Australia!
Als own parties have hosted Dimitri From Paris, Rick Wilhite, Sadar and Rahaan (with whom he plays a monthly residency).In Rahaan's own words "Al is the only DJ to have made me cry, his sets are something else!"
For his debut Sydney appearance, Al will be playing a 4hr set in a limited capacity, all new, inner city warehouse space.
Tickets are avaiable from Resident Advisor here
