Black Alley is the latest moniker for Berlin based musiclover, record collector and dj/remixer/producer Thomas Pudell.
It is like a box where he now throws all his stuff in - may it be collaborations, own productions, remixes or edits; even some old tracks might get some new clothes...
Thomas has been a DJ for more than 20 years now and a music lover for his whole life. He started listening to the record collection of his father when he was 3 years old.These classical jazz and Motown Records laid the foundation for the deep love for quality dance music he has today and where probably the corner stones of the extensive Collection of more than 40K pieces of Vinyl that are covering the walls of his home.
As a teenager, he started doing his first dj gigs at school parties. Soon after he got more gigs and landed residencies at local clubs in his hometown, where he played a healthy mixture of the music he loves: soulful Disco, funky R&B, plus danceable Jazztunes.
The year 1991 was a turning point in his life: when he visited the legendary Weekender in Southport, England, where he first saw DJs like Tony Humphries and 'Little' Louie Vega. Hearing these legends mixing a wide range of soulful / jazzy / tribal house music made Thomas' love for house music even stronger and so his style evolved from a more freestyle and jazzy one to the housier side of things. But even today he uses his rich musical background to mix the freshest house grooves with the finest tunes from 30 years of dance history.
As the music lover feels the need to express himself and his art not only on the decks, so he entered the world of production.
Over the years he has done remixes for Mary J. Blige's "Dance with me" MCA / Universalmusic,Alexi Delano & Vincenzos "Against The Wall" / WasNotWorthIt ,,Gadjo's "So many Times" Muschihaus/Subliminal/Universalmusic,Raul Paz "La Mulata" Ministry Of Sound Germany,to name a few - plus many own Tracks on different Labels like Mindbase Recordings, Freeport, Brickhouse,UCA,Hott,Edel and quite a few White Labels...
2010 was the right time to reset the past and move straight forward onto a new path: Black Alley - Delivered In Style, Coolly Orchestrated!!!
