Erol Alkan has brought his special brand of bastard pop to remixes for acts like Franz Ferdinand and Justice, and opened for Madonna and Daft Punk. His Monday club night Trash has grown to become one of the most adventurous and influential in the world. His first foray into DJing was back in 2001 when he was invited to play at Bugged Out and he returns every Easter with a marathon set - 2012's was 9 hours long - eschewing support DJs in favor of building the night himself. With Another Bugged Out Mix Erol delivers a diverse selection of music that spans over 4 decades. There are classics from the likes of Ron Hardy and Model 500 mixed with newer material like In Flagranti and Factory Floor. It's an impressive journey from a seasoned DJ. Features tracks from Seaside Houz Boyz, Umba, Jimmy Edgar, Scuba, Amin Peck, N.Y. House'n Authority, Jan Hammer Group, Matthew Herbert, Bibio, Mickey Moonlight, and many more. 39 tracks in all on two mixed CDs in classic jewel case packaging.
