With his wealth of music knowledge, DJ Ali is arguably one of the most respected DJ/selectors in the music business. His career started way back in the 80s when he was a youngster growing up in North-West London playing on various sound systems in the area. With his knowledge of soul music growing, he was asked to join Studio Express in 1989 and the rest is history.
DJ Ali was a self confessed Rare groove Junkie in the early days and would spend hours collecting rare groove and old skool beats from various outlets. This enabled him to express his knowledge of music on various local radio stations in London including Irie FM, Girls FM and Skyline radio. After spending nine years on Unique FM, DJ Ali decided it was time to go legal and presented a show on Bang Radio (a community based Radio Station in North West London). After a brief spell on this station, he returned to Unique FM where he is currently presenting a show on the new look uniqueradio.org, every Friday at 6pm – 8pm playing the best in Urban Soul and Old Skool classics.
