Our DJ Team
We are not an agency or pool of mobile DJs, when you book an After Dark Productions DJ package that is what you get teamed up with one of our skilled DJs and a trusty technicians to manage the lighting and sound. Simon Horn (DJ Si pictured on the left) will project manage your booking and be on call whenever you need and assign either himself or one of his specially picked DJs to your event.
Our DJs are very skilled, they take time planning a set for the event based on the music taste of the client and their guests, they perform a set that keeps within people’s attention span mixing into the next track before it has had a chance to go stale.
We deliver DJ sets that keep the floor full and everybody happy dancing to a trendy DJ Mix, you can be sure not to hear the likes of the birdie song and oops up side your head!
We take requests during the night or via our event planning website which also includes a do not play list!
If you fancy something a little different then take a look at our “Old Skool” house music act, The Back To Back Vinyl DJs. If you love classic Ibiza music from the 90’s and 00’s then you will love this.
The secret behind our success
After Dark Productions was founded in 2000 by Simon Horn who actually did his first mobile disco 10 years previous to that at the age of 8. At the time we were founded Simon was working
with a sound and lighting company and was given professional training in Sound & Lighting. Since the brand started equipment purchases were an educated purchase to the high
standards of the production industry and not inferior cheap products being pushed to other DJs by DJ shops and reps at DJ meetings. Today Simon’s career in the production industry has
really taken off as a Lighting Designer & Programmer, he is one of few UK lighting designers & programmers working at Arena tour level. In 2012 he operated lighting for Westlife’s farewell
arena & stadium tour, then worked for Olly Murs in 2013 & 2014 programming and operating lights on his arena tours. Since then the list has extended to designing and programming lighting for
Alison Moyet, Anastacia, Anna Meradith, Aston Merrygold, Dido, Maribou State and even lightshows wrapped round full sized steam trains which After Dark provided the DJ mixes for.
Having such an experienced and successful lighting designer/programmer running the company is what makes us exceptionally unique from our competitors.
With Simon’s skill and knowledge of lighting we end up providing tasteful and amazing lighting that our competitors simply can’t compete with.
Further to this Simon gains advice from some of the best sound engineers in the industry, as such we genuinely understand what are the best sound products and techniques for our gigs.
With 20 years under our belt, we have worked on an extensive amount of events. All our DJs have over 10 years experience performing to crowds from 50 to 2000 people.
Our DJs are all to the standard that would be expected in clubs, being able to mix with finesse and read a crowd constantly. Our clients have ranged from 18th Birthdays right up to BBC
Radio1 and Radio1 Xtra for their last ever office party at Yalding house.
