Even in the ever-changing kaleidoscope of clubland some things are timeless and the fundamental rules never change. You can have talent but if you want success, you need passion, commitment, drive, flexibility and vision as well. Very few can tick all six traits off the list but those that can will stand the test of time and notch up not years but DECADES behind the decks
Allan Peach has followed the path of his idols Slipmatt, Carl Cox and Sasha by applying this winning formula. He DJs under the name of DJ Mystery for the old-skool, jungle and rave end of his repertoire and he does so at the highest level, supporting the aforementioned Slipmatt in Australia, no less. He uses 1210s or CDJs, and the Pioneer RMX 1000. As one half of Timeless & Mystery, he’s kept the vibes alive, playing with the biggest club nights in the business – Fantastia, Moondance and so on – drawing on almost two and a half decades worth of tracks to pull together his sets.
As if conquering the South of England isn’t enough, Peach – as DJ Mystery – is going international in 2014, heading to Australia with the one and only Slipmatt on January 18 for a World of Rave special. He’ll play three gigs on this mini-tour, the high point in his career after more than 20 years in the business.
But he’s constantly evolving his sound while keeping it real. Rave was his passion in the early 1990s – in the late 1990s, he was seduced by techno and now DJs as Mr Peach for techno, house and minimal nights.
The musical landscape changed forever in the late 1980s and early 1990s when electronic dance and destination clubbing took our weekends to another level. In 1990, aged 18, Mr Peach joined that revolution and now, nearly 25 years on, he has the experience, as well as the enthusiasm, to instinctively know what a night needs to go off big time. Being a master of many genres, there's that flexibility within his sets to work with the energy level of the crowd, tune in and turn it up in many different ways.
Promoting comes naturally to the talented Mr Peach and, with the help of a carefully chosen crew, he runs club nights in Brighton, Southampton, Portsmouth and of course Bournemouth. Pure Klass is pure heaven for techno lovers and attracts some of the biggest names in the business. Dave Angel, no less, headlined the Pure Klass Christmas party in Bournemouth.
The Pure Klass team - Mr Peach, Craig, Lewis and Boyesey, with cheeky chappy Barry Vacher on promotion - are a force to be reckoned with, with two gigs in Bournemouth and two more in Bournemouth already scheduled for 2014. Mr Peach has lived in both towns and knows them inside out, both seaside towns with a holiday vibe, populated by serious clubbers as well as enthusiastic students and tourists.
Meanwhile, Conception is the night for drum & bass and jungle, with a heady concoction of old skool and nu skool beats and breaks. Like Pure Klass, Conception nights run throughout the South of England. As if that doesn’t keep him busy enough, Mr Peach is also on the hunt for new talent with record labels Kode5 – for future jungle & breaks – and Dekoded Records – for electronic dance music, house and funk.
The year may have started with weather akin to a monsoon but with Mr Peach flooding the South coast with stunning sets, awesome tracks and quality nights out, there's no excuse to stay on your sofa on Saturdays any more.
