Erol Alkan

is the undisputed high priest of the indie dance club scene and one of London’s culturals magnates. The Cypriot descendant ran the infamous Trash Club, single-handedly invented the mashup and Bastard-pop genre, remixed every important band of the last 15 years and produced The Klaxons, The Mystery Jets and Late Of The Pier. As Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve (with Richard Norris) Alkan is bringing psychedelica back into rock music.
