After annoying the neighbours for a couple of years, they decided to branch out and start annoying people at private parties and smaller venues around England, and annoy them they did. But, with practice and time came a more well-rounded sound culminating in an invite to play in America; after which, he took a 5-year sabbatical from DJing and took his turn on the dance floors around the world.
Once he stopped travelling long enough to make owning musical equipment logistically possible, Al discovered a more mature sound. The Detroit Soul and Motown roots remained, but added to this was a drive for a more worldly sound and an appreciation of other forms of music including jazz, hip hop, swing, house and too many more to mention. Al cites as some of his influences: Gilles Peterson, Ninja Tunes, Mr Scruff, DJ Food, Jurassic 5, Radiohead, Jeff Mills, Dave Clarke, Derrick May, UR and the list goes on.
