A DJ who needs no introduction. He began Djing at a mere 17 and was shortly offered residency at Nottingham’s “Koolkat”, playing alongside the likes of the ubiquitous Graeme Park. Another residency at Sasha’s career making club “Venus” and Whitehead’s reputation began to bloom. His big break beckoned when Mike Pickering, then of M People, asked Allister to cover his DJ’ing slot at the infamous Hacienda club. Immediately the club offered a residency, as did Cream where the Whitehead following was born. Being the first guest dj ever booked at Golden, he then went on to achieve nationwide recognition playing at the Ministry of Sound, Gatecrasher and just about every other club in between. On the strength of this Whitehead set up his own club “Zero-G” in his hometown of Nottingham. Here he continued to draw crowds of 1500 plus, as well as numerous bookings to play elsewhere. His successes were made timeless with the sale of his compilation albums for Fantazia and Ministry of Sound going Gold and Silver.
