THE MARBLE FACTORY:
erol alkan [all night long]
Not every DJ has what it takes to keep a party rocking from beginning to end, but if there’s one person who has the depth and breadth in his record bag to deliver the goods, it is surely Erol Alkan. Since his early days spearheading the crossover between danceable indie and electro, the London-based DJ has stayed at the front of the pack, demonstrating a canny mixture of eclecticism and focus that makes him as comfortable on a mammoth festival stage as he is in a sweaty basement club. Whether it’s vintage synth pop, jagged techno, alt disco or post punk, he’s got a formidable knowledge of party music from the all-time classics to the most obscure B-sides, and he’s not afraid to play anything that fits the moment. For this Bugged Out special, he’ll be at the controls from start to finish, making this a rare opportunity to go deep with a true master.
