Erol Alkan Biography

Erol Alkan is a London-based electro DJ of Cypriot Turkish descent. He was resident DJ and founder of London nightclub Trash. Trash was located at The End nightclub in Central London, and in its ten years (1997 - 2007) saw performances by Peaches, LCD Soundsystem, Klaxons, Bloc Party, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Electric Six and many more up and coming bands.

Erol Alkan released a series of mash-ups using the alias Kurtis Rush in the early 2000s, including a mix of Kylie Minogue's "Can't Get You out of My Head" and New Order's "Blue Monday", which was performed by Minogue at the Brit Awards. Erol also uses the alias Mustapha 3000, and is half of the psycho-balearic act 'Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve', along with Richard Norris.

Erol Alkan has remixed tracks from artists including Mylo, Bloc Party, Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers and Digitalism, and his profile increased considerably during 2006, when remixes for Scissor Sisters, Justice and Franz Ferdinand helped him to earn the Mixmag 2006 "DJ of the Year" award.

Most recently he's taken a hand to producing. He produced Mystery Jets' second album, Twenty One, Late of the Pier's debut record, Fantasy Black Channel, and The Long Blondes' second album Couples. He has also produced B-Sides for The Long Blondes and Klaxons. In 2007 Alkan founded his own label, named Phantasy Sound. In mid 2009 he collaborated with German DJ and producer Boys Noize, producing two tracks titled "Death Suite" and "Waves", these marked the first of Alkans original releases.
