Catching a break with Kamp Nokturnal, ALi B was quickly sprung into the spotlight, harnessing residence at what would have been at the time, one of Melbourne’s biggest Saturday nights and premier night clubs, Next Blue. It was here that he would garner his aspirations in such a tough and discerning industry, and which would later see him soaring in popularity.

Since that time, DJ ALi B has been a resident and guest at many of Melbourne’s top night clubs such as Next Blue, WaterMark, Club 255, Velour, Seven Nightclub, Platform One, Metro’s, Club Evolution, Lotel, Motel, Eleven A and many, many more.

Ramirez, James Ash (Rogue Traders) and the list goes on.

After a very successful couple of years back in his home town of Perth, Australia ALi B made the move to Kuala Lumpur and has rightfully made his mark on the place he refers to as ‘his second home’. Since being in Kuala Lumpur ALi B, has been very much part of the local house movement DJjing at Heritage Mansion, Upstairs @ The Loft, Cynna, TwentyOne and BarSu in Kota Kinabalu. Besides these local venues, ALi B has also made several trips to DJ for the Jet Set crew at Indochine in Singapore, Immigrant in Jakarta and the renowned Dejavu in Bali.

His popularity has even stretched to trips as far as Europe where he has DJed at one of the best clubs in the world, Amika (voted Best Club 2007&2008)London.
With ALi B you can expect the latest and most upfront in everything that is house, a mixture of big room vocals with driving basslines and a night that will not soon be forgotten.
