Alton comes to the world painting a musical canvas. Molded, shaped and reared on Stevie Wonder, Santana, Parliament Funkadelic and the Philadelphia sound, he grew to be an avid clubber. On a frenzied tour of clubs in North America Alton began honing his skills under the electrifying energies of Ron Hardy, Frankie Knuckles, Larry Levan and Timmy Regisford. Alton, along with his friends, set out to recreate the energy and atomsphere they experienced in the clubs and opened the world renowned dance club the music institute. The Music Insitute was one of the epicenters of the underground House Movement where Alton and Chez Damier shared a residency on Saturday nights helping to create the musical volcano that erupted worldwide in 1988. Alton's affinities for rhythms inspired him to take up conga drumming, leading to an accompaniment for the locally based Katherine Dunham Dance Company. Drumming and its connections to rhythms of all music have proven to be influential to his musical growth. In 1991 Alton recorded his first release "Pleasure Baby" for Serious Grooves/KMS Records. His second release, "I Like Having You" was a debut for his vocal talents. "Dusk" was recorded under the pseudonym Aphrodisiac and was critically acclaimed on both European and North American charts. Since his early recordings Alton has amassed worldwide success and exposure as a House music producer/dj.Alton has recorded and released music for some of the best independent labels in the the industry. Guidance Recordings and BPM Records were plateaus for Alton's inner growth as a musician and songwriter / producer. Past and present releases inclue recordings for Planet E, King Street/Nitegrooves, Trackmode Records, Moods and Grooves and KDJ. Alton teamed up with vocalist / playwrite Dorothea Sharon on their debut single "Glory" for the Japanese label Life Line Records. In September 2003, Alton debuted on Peacefrog, with his first album "Stories from Bohemia". The recent release of "Chose to Believe" (Original full vocal) and "My Life" on Deeper Soul Recordings out of Chicago debuted at 42 on the DJ Mag "Breaks and Beats " chart. Alton's remix credits to date include: Sean Deason's "Allegory Metaphor" on Intuit-Solar, Jacob Desvarieux's "An Di Adie" on Distance, Kenny Carvel's "Rise" featuring the late John Richmond on Music 101 and Lorca's "I Cry" featuring Mandel Tuner on F-com. From 1989 to present Alton has toured Canada, Chile, England, France, Japan, Switzerland, Australia, Puerto-Rico and various other countries defining House music as he has experienced and lives it. His intimate connection with the drums and varied African influenced rhythms result in compositions that move people physically and emotionally.
