Al Kent first played for us way back when we were throwing rave pub sessions in the legendary Moog so it's a pleasure to welcome him back to our sweaty little disco. He's played just about everywhere that's worth its onions and despite his reputation as a digger and his background in rare soul and disco, Al is no musical snob when it comes to DJing. He knows how to move a dance-floor with music that ranges from the most obscure disco to bona-fide classics. It's his edits that elevate him beyond the normal conception of a "disco DJ" though. If you thought disco was music for the back room, think again.. Al's sound is big and bad, perfectly mixed in a way Ron Hardy would be proud of. His style has earned him serious praise from many of his peers like Sadar Bahar, Mike Huckaby, Theo Parrish, Rahaan, Red Rack'em, Joey Negro (who once famously called him Scotland's answer to Walter Gibbons), Dimitri From Paris and Horse Meat Disco.
