Biography

Born and raised in Canada’s sunny Okanagan Valley, Eric had an early start, experimenting with production software and getting his first set of dj gear at only age 15. Months after he was playing parties for friends, events at local schools and as the years progressed, larger and larger events including clubs and outdoor dance events in surrounding cities. Eric’s work began so early in fact that he was still underage when he played his first club gigs, having to be escorted in an out of the venues so that he could play his sets. Fast forward to today and having picked up and moved to Vancouver, British Columbia in late 2007, Eric Allen is now a major power player in the west coast electronic music scene. After landing a residency in late 2009 at Vancouver’s famous Gorgomish Afterhours, Eric’s name began to circulate among the local nightlife elite. He soon found himself rocketing up from a gig a month the year previous, to playing over 50 live shows in 2010, an explosion of popularity seldom seen. Not only did he find himself playing at his residency almost every Friday, but opening for international artists like Above & Beyond, Gabriel & Dresden, Max Graham, Marco V and countless others at some of the cities biggest venues. Eric is also a major driving force behind supporting the local dance scene and has always found it important to help give back to the community that has given him so much. As one of the original founders of Vancouver’s over 1500 member strong “Vancouver Trance Family” organization, his work with his “Awake” nightlife brand and club nights and a supporter of new and upcoming talent, Eric is an influential force in shaping the future of the west coast dance community.

Somehow despite the constant lack of sleep, onslaught of live shows and his work in the local scene, Eric also finds time to maintain his own radio show, “On The Dance Floor”. The show, which airs monthly on AfterhoursFM, one of the internet’s most well recognized electronic dance stations, goes out to thousands of listeners worldwide. He is also rountinely requested by various industry elite to lend his talents to guest mixes including a recent appearance on American dance legend Christopher Lawrence’s “Rush Hour” podcast, a dj who himself was extremely impressed with Eric’s talents behind the decks after Eric opened for him in Vancouver.

Now setting in his sights firmly on the studio and original productions, Eric has begun to hone his talents as a producer. Eric already includes countless edits, reworks, mashups and even the occasional bootleg remix in his sets, but the time has come to complete the picture with original work. Having music theory training and studio recording education dating back to his middle school days, the progression is a natural one for Eric and promises to be an exciting new venture.

The last few years have been massive for Eric and the next few promise to be even bigger. Look (and listen) for Eric coming to a club or event near you!
