House Mix: Chosen Few DJ, Alan King
JET is the media sponsor for the 25th Annual Chosen Few Old School House Picnic and we’re kicking off the celebration with this Frankie Knuckles Tribute mix by DJ Alan King!
Known as a “lawyer by day, DJ by night,” Alan is one of Chicago’s original house music DJs and one of the early members of The Chosen Few. His influence on the house music landscape has been felt for more than 30 years, and he has been cited as an inspiration by DJs and producers including the late, Grammy Award-winning Frankie Knuckles, Steve “Silk” Hurley and Chip E.
In 2012, Alan was commissioned by L.A.’s Hidden Beach Records to create a promotional mixtape and write the liner notes for a new release, “CRATES: Remix Fundamentals Volume I,” a collection of dance remixes of songs by Grammy Award winner Jill Scott. In 2013, Alan authored liner notes for Terry Hunter’s mix compilation, “Bang,” on BBE Records.
In October 2014, Alan was named as a Top 20 DJ by New York’s award-winning Robbi Promoter.
