As label manager & A&R at 3am Recordings, Al Bradley has been involved with house music (either on the dancefloor or behind the decks) for the last 20 years, kicking things off with visits to The Hacienda in his hometown of Manchester in the late 80s & moving through the amazing northern club scene over the following years. As such, DJ influences range from Graeme Park, Tom Wainwright, Sasha, Ralph Lawson, Miles Hollway & Elliot Eastwick, James Holroyd, David Morales, Slam, Harri & Domenic Cappello to name just a handful.
Moving into the 00s & things moved forward again, with the launch of 3am Recordings in June 2003. Since then 3am has had a CD on the cover of i-DJ Magazine (which went worldwide to 23,000 people) in June 2004 for the labels 1st birthday, been featured for a special birthday 2-page report from a gig in Poland for DJ Magazine for the labels 2nd birthday & had a track in the top 15 tech-house releases of 2003 in i-DJ (Ciudad Feliz Buenos Aires Burning). An exclusive 3am Recordings mix by Al was also sent out via DJ Mag Spain during SONAR 2011 to celebrate the labels 8th birthday. Al continues to run 3am entirely on his own, championing new artists alongside established acts, with 10th birthday celebrations throughout 2013, including hosting a 3am party at Fabric, plus an exclusive mix recorded for Fabrics website to mark the occasion - http://www.fabriclondon.com/blog/view/audio-deadbeat-disco-3am-recordings-x-fabric-mix
