Allister Whitehead

House DJ for over 25 years.

DJing for over 25 years, reached the DJMag World top 20 during the Nineties and circumnavigated the Globe many times playing House Music on every continent!

He sold over Half a Million DJ Mix albums with Fantazia as well as recorded the First DJ Mix album to be the highest selling album of it’s time, outselling the pop Number one of the same week in the UK.

He achieved cult status at the Golden (he was actually the first guest DJ they had ever booked), which was voted cub of the year in 1993. Yet another residency swiftly followed, at Cream, where Allister found his largest following yet. His national status was further cemented with regular spots at Ministry of Sound, Gatecrasher, and just about every club in between. Having proved his worth as a premier league DJ the time came for Allister to develop the Zero-G club in Nottingham. Regular crowds of 1500+ were attracted, as his Saturday nights were exclusive to this baby…his demand to play at other clubs the length and breadth of the country was of course, a natural consequence.

He was truly established as a household name worldwide with the Gold selling Fantazia album ‘The House Collection 3’ which was then, the biggest selling DJ compilation ever. The floodgates then opened to a new era of compilation sales becoming a dominating component of the dance music industry. Allister has since gone on to achieve 3 more Gold and 2 Silver albums with compilation for Fantazia and Ministry of Sound.

Nowadays Allister is undisputedly one of the UK’s most prolific House DJs. He can be seen in the UK’s most respected clubs, like Shindig in Newcastle, Lovezoo in Nottingham, The Zap in Brighton and Cream events, which regularly boasts the country’s highest attendance figures. Committed to a punishing schedule, he has been known to travel to up to four countries in one week. He’s travelling further a field than ever before, working in some of the finest clubs in the world in America, Asia, Australia and Europe.

Allister is well known for DJ’ing at Nightclubs such as The Hacienda and Cream and played along names such as Boy George and Jeremy Healy.
