Our House Sydney returns on Sunday Easter long weekend with one of the true pioneers of House music, ALTON MILLER (DETROIT, USA). Visiting Australia for the first time in over 10 years, the man from the motor city will celebrate the 20th anniversary of Detroit's legendary club 'The Music Institute' which he co-founded with George Baker and Chez Damier.
Alton's trip downunder also coincides with the release of his latest album, 'Light Years Away' which has been critically acclaimed by the likes of Osunlade, Atjazz, and Boddhi Satva. http://mixedsignals.ca/#/-in-the-house-canada

Limited $20 presale tickets are available from www.ourhousesydney.com. Strictly limited capacity so get in quick.
Growing up in the 1970s, Miller soaked up the musical environment surrounding him in the Motor City, taking a particular interest in the sounds of Motown, Philadelphia, Parliament-Funkadelic, and Santana. It was during the early '80s once the "dance music crazed" Alton became friends with a young Derrick May that he decided to start spinning records, citing Chicago DJs such as Ron Hardy and Frankie Knuckles as prime influences. By the latter part of the same decade, Miller joined forces with George Baker and Chez Damier to start the Music Institute, a short-lived but legendary Detroit club that has since become near-mythical, thanks to the pioneering techno efforts of figures such as May. Following the demise of The Music Institute, Miller took an interest in Conga drumming in addition to DJing, which led to a period between 1989 and 1991 where he toured the world with his music. He then joined forces once again with May, first as an employee of the artist's Transmat Records label, then as Aphrodisiac, the title under which he would begin releasing his music. Besides his EP on Transmat's sublabel Fragile, he also released his music on Kevin Saunderson's KMS and a series of EPs on Serious Grooves. By the mid to late '90s, he had increased his presence in the Detroit area through a number of DJ performances and a stream of stunning twelves. His latest album 'Light Years Away' had been critically acclamied by the likes of Osunlade, Atjazz and Boddhi Satva
