Allister Whitehead

 

Allister Whitehead began Djing at the age of 17 and was shortly offered residency at Nottingham’s “Koolkat”, playing alongside Graeme Park. His breakthrough came when Mike Pickering, then of M People, asked Allister to cover his DJ’ing slot at the infamous Hacienda club. Immediately the club offered a residency and Cream followed soon. Being the first guest dj ever booked at Golden, he then went on to achieve nationwide recognition playing at the Ministry of Sound, Gatecrasher and just about every other club in between. On the strength of this Whitehead set up his own club “Zero-G” in his hometown of Nottingham. Here he continued to draw crowds of 1500 plus, as well as numerous bookings to play elsewhere.

He has also worked with the likes of Martha Walsh, Natalie Imbruglia and Robbie Williams and following these achievements released a couple of tracks on his own record label “Sporting”. His first release Blackheadz “ Saturday Night” got fantastic feedback, with high chart ratings in the press as well as from fellow Djs. His second release sold out within days. Following this, Whitehead was required to remix Rainstar’s “Breakdown” for WEA records, which rocketed to the number 3 slot in the Hype chart.
