Bio


Allen Wright, aka dj al groove started learning how to dj at age 14 in spring of 1986, imitating the djs on the WBMX Hot Mix Five, WGCI mix shows and WKKC Friday Night Audio and in the many club/house parties thrown around the city of Chicago. After lots of practicing and honing his chops, went on to dj at various radio shows, clubs,raves,and house parties throughout chicago and grand rapids, michigan for over twenty years. He started producing at age 16, going to the library to read books about music production, sound engineering, playing around with friends drum machines and made some tracks here and there. They were just experimental, and some of the tracks were recorded to cassette tapes and reel to reels which provided the future producer/remixer with the knowledge and skills on how to make music. Fast forward to 1998 when Allen Wright relocated to Grand Rapids, Michigan to a scene inluenced by Detroit house and techno. He was introduced to Greg Rapier and the two realized they had the same musical goals and became friends and later business partners. This union led to their first recordings and their first record, "The Deep Rooted E.P.", which featured two hot tracks on side a from Greg Rapier and two hot tracks on side b from Allen Wright. The album was never released due to financial problems, but the duo plans to release the album on their own label Rawhouse Records. As of now, Allen Wright djs and runs two record labels with friend/business partner Greg Rapier, Speakerheat Records for the deeper, vocal and instrumental house music, and rawhouse records for the tracky house and tech-house music. He also has been working with longtime friend Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being/The Sun God, doing rare disco edits/remixes on their Members Only label, and also releasing tracks on Jamal Moss and Steve Poindexter’s labels Muzique Records and Chicago Underground. On Chicago Underground, Allen Wright partnered up with longtime friend Loring “dj jocko” Moore to produce the track "The Vibe", a spacey, jazzy sounding house track. On Muzique Records, Allen released the track "Pictures and Paragraphs", a bassline,synth filled tech house track on the compilation album "the House of Muzique Vol. 1" in 2005. Later in 2006 he released the track "System Free", an old school, Gherkin Jerks sounding track he produced in 1989 on the compilation album " The House of Muzique Vol. 2". Due out in march 2007 is Allen Wright’s debut album "Primitive World" on Muzique Records which feature three killer tracks with that old school acid/jacking sound and feel like back in the days of house musics infancy. Today, Allen Wright is still running his labels he launched in 2005, rawhouse records and speakerheat records. The first release in June of 2012 from Rawhouse Records, "Love or Lust", is a collaboration between him and longtime friend Loring "dj jocko" Moore. Many more releases from him and othert artists on the label are due to follow for the rest of 2012.
