DJS:

Our House Sydney & Soul Of Sydney are proud to present one of the true pioneers of House music, ALTON MILLER (DETROIT, USA). Due to overwhelming popular demand following his Australian performances last year, Alton is back! He showed that his innovation and ingenuity as a producer also extended into his DJ’ing as he seemlessly married House with his Disco Funk influences.

Alton’s musical roots are also deeply connected with Detroit’s legendary club ‘The Music Institute’ which he co-founded with George Bake r and Chez Damier (http://dopejams.net/index.php?p=product&id=3352&parent=1&is_print_version=true). His trip also coincides with the release of his latest single “Waiting For You” (http://soundcloud.com/kingsofgroove/alton-miller-waiting-for-you) which has attracted praise from the likes of Osunlade, Glenn Underground and Black Coffee.

So we are extremely exited to be able to have him playing a special Sunday afternoon ‘Spirit of House’ set in the open air grassed courtyard of Hermann’s Bar at Sydney University.

Expect an afternoon of exceptional music from an extraordinary talent including an eclectic mix of Deep & Soulful Motor City House flavors as well as a solid dose of the Soul & Disco Funk that has shaped and influenced his career as a Producer & DJ.

Local supports include Phil Toke, Michael Zac, Eadie Ramia & Soul of Sydney DJ’s

Limited 1st release $15 presale tickets are available from http://residentadvisor.net/. 2nd release $20 and $25 on the door if not sold out. Strictly limited capacity so get in quick.

ALTON MILLER
Growing up in the 1970s, Miller soaked up the musical environment surrounding him in the Motor City, taking a particular interest in the sounds of Motown, Philadelphia, Parliament-Funkadelic, and Santana. It was during the early ’80s once the “dance music crazed” Alton became friends with a young Derrick May that he decided to start spinning records, citing Chicago DJs such as Ron Hardy and Frankie Knuckles as prime influences. By the latter part of the same decade, Miller joined forces with George Baker and Chez Damier to start the Music Institute, a short-lived but legendary Detroit club that has since become near-mythical, thanks to the pioneering techno efforts of figures such as May. Following the demise of The Music Institute, Miller took an interest in Conga drumming in addition to DJing, which led to a period between 1989 and 1991 where he toured the world with his music. He then joined forces once again with May, first as an employee of the artist’s Transmat Records label, then as Aphrodisiac, the title under which he would begin releasing his music. Besides his EP on Transmat’s sublabel Fragile, he also released his music on Kevin Saunderson’s KMS and a series of EPs on Serious Grooves. By the mid to late ’90s, he had increased his presence in the Detroit area through a number of DJ performances and a stream of stunning twelves. His latest album ‘Light Years Away’ had been critically acclamied by the likes of Osunlade, Atjazz and Boddhi Satva
