After Dark® Productions is arguably the highest quality mobile disco company in the South, if not the UK. We cater for premium events where only the best will do but still at competitive pricing compared to our lesser quality competitors. Events from 50 to 1000 people we have the perfect stock of professional equipment for the job.
What sets us apart from other mobile DJs is the high quality equipment we use, literally only the best will do. For example a poor quality sound system will destroy a party, a sound system should never hurt or leave your ears ringing even at high volume. A high quality sound system will deliver energy to the dance floor, will be crisp and clean sounding and allow you to even hold a conversation on the dance floor. Thus even when some guests need a break from dancing or head to the bar they can still talk and as such will not leave the main room, this keeps the audience close by and the dance floor moving. Our sound systems are from Funktion-One, a company dedicated to delivering sound pure to it's original recording, it is regarded as the highest quality sound system in the world. We are one of the few mobile DJ operators to own Funktion-One, in fact we were the first back in 2001 and the first to own their latest development "Evo".
Our DJs are also 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.
After Dark Productions was founded in 2000 by Simon Horn (known to many students across West Sussex as DJ Si) 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. Simon was always frustrated when attending parties at the time by the almost laughable attempts at disco setups and saw a niche for a company that could deliver disco setups to the standards of top UK clubs and the live touring industry. Since the brand started equipment investments 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 the 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. 2015 to today Simon is working on Anastacia's return to the pop rock world as her lighting designer. In September 2018 Simon was a finalist (top 3) for a Knight Of Illumination Award in event lighting.
Having such an experienced and successful lighting designer/programmer running the company is what makes us 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.
