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. We appreciate weddings are an extremely important day and require a specialist touch, thus this website is dedicated to our wedding services.
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 and we are one of few mobile DJ operators to own it, 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 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. Since the brand started equipment purchases 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 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.
Having such an experienced and successful lighting designer/programmer running the company is what makes us exceptionally 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.
With 16 years under our belt, we have worked on an extensive amount of events. All our DJs have over 10 years experience performing to crowds from 50 to 1000 people. Our DJs are all to the standard that would be expected in clubs, being able to mix with finesse and read a crowd constantly. Our clients have ranged from 18th Birthdays right up to BBC Radio1 and Radio1 Xtra for their last ever office party at Yalding house, what a night that was.
