Tobie Allen is not simply coming up from the underground; he is breaking out smoking, in his inimitable "take no prisoners" style. A relatively recent addition to the London scene, although a Cockney by birth, he cut his dance teeth in Cape Town club land where he is viewed as a household name where his legendary gigs at Cape Town's leading clubs are regarded in reverential tones in "I was there" moments. Across South Africa he is always a main arena headliner at all major outdoor events and is now seen as one of the Godfathers of SA house music and a local legend in dance music culture in general. Through his many hats, as a DJ, Promoter and Producer, he was instrumental in creating the Cape Town scene, surely one of the most wild, wicked and vibrant nightlife destinations in the Southern Hemisphere.
Needing wider tapestries and seeking other challenges he returned to Blighty where he went back to basics. He listened, watched, interacted and paid his dues and in a very short time back in the UK, he built a solid reputation with his Bootleg Social and Prohibition nights. Whereas Prohibition, monthly at the White House for the last two years, has stayed true to its roots as a dirty, filthy backroom night, it is Bootleg Social, his signature night, which is cementing Tobie's reputation as one of the most exciting talents on the scene.
