Allan started Djing in Clubs in North Germany making a name for himself until he met Tandu (Ayla, Ingo Kunzi). He decided to move to the Stuttgart area where he started doing Studio work for Unsubmissive Records with a few good releases and a few pretty bad releases!! His first Major Deal was with Edel Club Tools under his old Dj name Dj Micky. Tandu was a great support for helping him get on his feet by getting him Gigs in Jailhouse Achern and introducing him to Olaf Lubberger (Reaktor). From then on his Career took off like a rocket. He then changed his name to "Allan McLoud" just a few weeks after the Legendary Club "Reaktor" in Buehl opened its doors.

Djing alongside great names like: Uli Brenner, Taucher, Talla 2Xlc, Dag, Frank Lorber, Richie Hawtin, Tom Wax, Tom Novy etc etc.. 1998 came Allan's biggest Breakthrough with his first release on Talla 2Xlc's Future Records and being invited by Talla to DJ in the Legendary Dorian Gray in Frankfurt. He then became resident at Talla's Technoclub (Dorian Gray) Djing every last friday of the month until it sadly closed its doors in December 2000. During this time Allan was fully booked Djing all over Germany and Europe and his Homebase Reaktor.
