Allan Morrow (UK) is a name which has become synonymous with the worldwide Trance community, this talented DJ & producer from the United Kingdom has spent years perfecting his production talents and in turn his music has received support from various high profile DJ’s such as Armin Van Buuren, Simon Patterson & Aly & Fila amongst many more.


Allan first got immersed in Electronic Dance music by a visit to the clubbing capital of the world Ibiza; a trip to the legendary Amnesia for Cream followed and really opened his eyes to the immense power of Electronic music. Mesmerised by the Turntable trickery of Deck wizard Eddie Halliwell, this was a turning point for Allan and as soon as he returned to the UK he purchased his first set of Turntables, and began to hone his musical ear by perfecting the art of DJing.


Not content with playing the music he loved to spin, it wasn’t long before Allan decided to set up his own home Studio and became involved in Music Production. Allan has invested several years mastering his sound and this has proven to be a valuable asset making Allan an Artist that produces 100% of his own material, without the need of Engineers or Ghost-writers, something that not many recent producers can claim today. This has lead to his productions being on credible labels such as Armada, Blackhole Recordings, Damaged Records, Kearnage Recordings, Mental Asylum Records, Tytanium Recordings, Discover & Many more!.


Allan cites Paul Van Dyk, Simon Patterson, Giuseppe Ottaviani & Will Atkinson as his main influences when it comes to Production, so it comes as no surprise that Allan’s sound is rooted firmly in the more energetic side of the Trance Spectrum. His productions are always aimed straight at the global Dance-floors with club shaking Kick drums, Cone rattling bass lines & a touch of acid thrown in for good measure, his signature sound is always complimented by strong melodies, full-fire Synths & Clever FX which has earned Allan many plaudits from both clubbers, DJ’s & Producers around the world.



With a discography that most producers can only dream of, the future is looking promising for Allan, one of the Nu-Breed Trance producers really making an impact on the modern day Electronic music scene.

    What makes AM Studios tutorials different from the rest?
    There is no set way to produce music, and you are always going to come up against issues and creative blocks. In these tutorials, there are no pre-planned sounds, and everything is done in real-time so that you get to see any problems that come up and how to overcome them.

    This is a much better way to learn than watching sounds that already fit, fall right in to place. We all know that is not how producing music works in the real world! Watching in real-time will equip you with the skills and understanding of how to overcome any particular issues that arise. It will show you different ways to tackle it so you don’t quit and instead come out of the studio with completed projects.
