Erol Alkan first came to prominence as the man at the forefront of the
huge wave of bootlegging, and through his famous genre-mashing DJ sets,
the rise and rise of his club night Trash, and his incredible remixing
skills he has become one of the most exciting and in-demand DJs in the
Since 1997, he fired up an enthusiastic crowd every Monday at his night, Trash - and since 2000 Trash called The End home. However, after ten absurdly successful years, Trash made its final bow at its own birthday party. Erol Alkan played The End's main room at Trash week-in week-out throughout that time, and in recent years has had guest bands performing including Scissor Sisters, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Rapture, The Slits, Bloc Party, The Klaxons, Archie Bronson Outfit, Good Shoes and The Mystery Jets.
In true Trash style, the party ended with a bang on the night's 10th birthday - one of the busiest nights the club has ever seen, with over 2000 people queuing to pay their respects. Trash will be missed - however, it spawned Durrr, a new Monday night at The End with Erol curating, a similar musical ethos and a penchant for live music, which promises to be every bit as exciting and trailblazing as Trash has been for the last ten years.
Erol Alkan also holds another residency at The End at the fantastic Bugged Out!, for whom his unforgettable lounge sets have become the star attraction. As popular with the electronic music cognoscenti as he is with the indie kids, Erol has built a worldwide reputation for playing sets of the finest electronic music infused with elements of the highly unexpected, and his own exclusive re-workings that in recent years have included Mylo's 'Drop The Pressure', Hot Chip's 'And I Was a Boy From School', Justice's 'Waters of Nazareth' and Scissor Sisters 'I Don't Feel Like Dancin'.
Erol Alkan has universal respect and admiration from the indie and dance scenes, and is massively popular with the masses too - try squeezing yourself in to the club any time he graces a Bugged Out! flyer and see for yourself!
