ALAM
(House / Techno / Prog House)
Having always been obsessed with music, Alam decided to push himself by testing the waters of his musical inspiration. Today, this DJ/Producer has made a name for himself, dropping his signature sets along the way. Not only is he one of the backbones behind leading event company OMP Entertainment, he has also definitely proven himself, as he is considered as one of the prominent new generation of DJs firing up the local and international clubbing scene. Alam has always been upfront with what he does; showing his versatility by mixing different forms of style and genre, with his smooth blends of house music, to his unique selection of techno tunes. Regardless, he manages to deliver an experience of sound, which always leaves the crowd with wanting more.

Since beginning his career 11 years ago, Alam has held up residencies at most of the major venues, such as Kuala Lumpur’s premier underground club; The Backroom*KL, while making guest appearances at the legendary Zouk Club and Velvet Underground, Echo Bar, Ministry of Sound, and that’s only to name a few. Throughout the years, he has managed to extend his resume internationally, playing at the Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan (Thailand), and across the borders from venues such as the famous Stadium Jakarta, Co2 and Embassy (Indonesia).

In 2005, Alam continued to garner attention by developing his sounds across to Melbourne, Australia, where he quickly built up a following through his residencies at clubs such as Room680, Seven Nightclub and Brown Alley, and while having the opportunity to grace the decks at the now defunct Metro, QBH, and Ffour. This in turn led to starting his own successful nights at some of Melbourne’s forefront nightclubs. KL Beatz was a night he created, showcasing Malaysia’s hidden talents and redirecting a fresh new approach to the Melbourne dance music scene. His residency with Darkbeat opened up international opportunities as well as regularly playing alongside Melbourne’s best lineups. He recently launched a brand new monthly night that he co-hosts together with local Melbourne DJ, Phil Moore. Together they run Definition and prolifically feature guests of the current local dance music scene, with a focus on the new breed of rising talents.

Alam has played alongside International artists: Danny Howells, James Zabiela, Desyn Masiello, Ben Watt, Hernan Cattaneo, Steve Lawler, Derrick Carter, Nick Warren, Dave Seaman, Slam, Paolo Mojo, Darren Emerson, Michael Mayer, Guy J, Satoshi Tomiie, Nick Curly, Deetron, Anthony Pappa, Chris Fortier, Robert Hood, Fergie, Luke Fair, Jim Rivers, Oliver Koletzki, John Selway, Funk D’Void, Sebastian Leger, Ryan Crosson, Ashley Beedle, Vincenzo, Green Velvet, Silicone Soul, Charlie May, Paul Woolford, Spencer Parker, Will Saul, Move D, and many more.

On the production note, tracks like ‘Repeat the Lines’ and ’Filthy Days’ have been played by many DJs around the South-East Asia to Australia regions. ‘Kaleidosimple’ is out now on RedFlux Cinnabar through online digital stores like Beatport and Juno Download, with remixes from Nick Robson, Rodrigo Soria, and Yuuki Hori. The release has been charted numerous times and supported by artists, Kasey Taylor, dPen, Nicholas Van Orton, Mattan, Onrika, to name a few, through shows such as Frisky Radio and Proton Music. These countless achievements of Alam include the privilege of supporting worldwide events and label release tours from renowned brandings such as Renaissance, Yoshitoshi, Resident Advisor Asia Tour, Gatecrasher World Tours, Slinky Australian Tour, Kompakt Recordings, Balance Series, Buzzin’ Fly, Dig Deeper, We Love.., as well as regional clubnights like Inthemix50 Club Tour, Kiss FM Radio, Hardware Corp, Sunny, Pretty Simple, Stable Music, Fluidlife, Chameleon Records, Text Book Music, Lets Get Minimal, Strawberry Fields, and The Melbourne Techno Collective.

Regularly playing in both Kuala Lumpur and Melbourne throughout the year builds challenges through his musical influences, which help connect with full control with the audience. There is still much more to come, as this is only the beginning of another musical chapter as Alam continues to push his career to higher levels, gradually across the global dance music culture.
