Hailing from the UK, Mark Holbrook producing under his Alt-A moniker is an established producer in the Breaks scene bringing with him a wealth of musical knowledge, technical experience and fresh innovative sounds.
Since starting production in 2012 Alt-A has signed to many leading labels; Diablo Loco, VIM Records, Spektra Recordings, Morphosis, Fantomas Records and many more.
With 50+ Beatport Breaks Top 100 Tracks to his name and a rapidly growing following of international DJ’s including Lady Waks, IBWT DJ’s, Seth Vogt and Under This to name a few, Alt-A’s tracks are guaranteed to destroy dance floors whenever they are played.
