A decade of experience, and a long standing marathon length podcast Pitch Black, Alan Ruddick has built a reputation of being one of the most versatile DJs on the UK scene at the moment. With both feet firmly in the underground, he’s at home in dark, sweaty night clubs with an audience of like minded clubbers, there to dance the night away with dark, twisted progressive beats.

Not content with just DJing, Alan also co-founded Research & Development with long-time friend and collaborator, John Dopping. R&D serves as a platform to promote undiscovered artists, and cutting edge sounds. With artists like Facade, Chris Voro, Opku and DeCode as label mainstay’s, it’s no wonder they regularly garner the support of the likes of J00F and Airwave.

Always with his ear to the ground, Alan delivers tight sets with visceral musical threads throughout, making every one a treat.
