About JEFF ALFORD
2006 was the year that saw DJ-Producer Jeff Alford break out into the international dance music scene with his album Heart of Trance and his award wining-video to the album's first single 'Visions in Space'. However, his story started much earlier.
1998 was the year when Alford was part of a Hip-Hop band called Little Buddha in Lebanon. The experience gave Alford the confidence he needed to go solo. In 2002, after intensively studying the recording arts in America, Alford released his debut album "Down To Earth". The 30 track Hard Trance/Hard House double album was released through his own Jamixart Productions label.
His trance track "Reaching the Top" was selected for inclusion on the 'Hot Clubbing Vol.5' dance compilation CD in 2003 with 1.3 million copies released. 'Hot Clubbing' was released in conjunction with The Daily Star & The Express newspapers in the UK. The mix was also selected as background music for the television advertising campaign, which included broadcasters such as MTV, Paramount, C4, C5 and Sky One.
Alford licensed the album 'Down to Earth' to Nonego Records in 2004. The track "Feeling The Energy" from the album appeared on the "Psychic Vol.1" compilation release and Red Earth Studios Ltd (Powerboat P1 World Championship Mid-Season-Review). 5 mixes from the album were selected for the background music broadcast on Sky Sports, and The Sailing Channel).
Alford's follow up album "Space Invader" was released in 2005. The album featured 12 tracks of Hard Trance/Goa Trance. This was followed by the album 'Heart of Trance' in 2006. The Hard House and PsyTrance album was licensed to Aardvark Records.
Alford produced and directed his debut promotional music video for the single "Visions in Space" - which went on to receive the International Music Video Award at the Cravefest Music Award held in Toronto, Canada in the "Most Original Video" in the Signed Electronic category. Exposure through Foot Locker's 2,500 North American retail outlets brought Alford's video to 38 million. The video has also aired on Canada's main dance music video broadcast channel BPM:TV, which boasts 20 million viewers, and numerous other music video channel s around the globe.
2008 sees the release of a new album "Dreams - Heart Of Trance Part II". The album is released under Jamixart Productions and licensed to Aardvark Records. This album sees Alford once again returning to the PsyTrance helm.
2008 is also the year of the G.T.S. (Global Trance Session) tour with Alford mixing LIVE, non-stop remixes: hands-on his gear, no cds, no vinyls used... Which makes his concerts unique as there is never the same progression in sound.
