Alan Walker Biography – Who is Alan Walker

Alan Walker (born as: Alan Olav Walker)  is a Norwegian DJ and record producer from Northampton, England. He was formerly known as DJ Walkzz. He is popular for his 2015 single ‘Faded’. In 2018 DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs list ranked him at number 36. He also had his studio album by the title, Different World, released in 2018.

In being a DJ, Alan is self-taught from watching tutorials on YouTube based on music production. He started all his music on his laptop with FL Studio. In July 2012, with the help and feedback from his fans online, he began pursuing his music production career and slowly began posting his music to YouTube and SoundCloud.

On 17th August 2014, he released his first track ‘Faded’ and it became a hit that became diamond-certified in Germany and also received multi-platinum certifications in over 10 other countries. In 2015, he released two other tracks “Spectre” and “Force”.

British-Norwegian EDM producer Alan Walker was a mere 18 years old when his track “Faded” became a massive European hit, topping the charts in ten countries and entering the Top Five in six more. Born August 24, 1997, in Northampton, England, to a Norwegian mother and British father, Walker moved with his family to Bergen, Norway, at the age of two. A true post-millennial child, Walker grew up surrounded by technology and became fascinated by computers. In 2012, inspired by EDM producers K-391 and Ahrix, whom he’d discovered on YouTube, and film composers Steve Jablonsky and Hans Zimmer, he began to create his own music on his laptop.

Working in the genre of “drumstep,” a kind of slowed-down drum N bass, he eventually uploaded the instrumental track “Fade,” which was soon picked up and re-released via the No Copyright Sounds (NCS) YouTube channel and free net label that promoted the two aforementioned EDM artists. “Fade” was a huge success, eventually garnering a staggering 65 million hits, and was followed by two more equally cinematic (if somewhat less popular) songs, “Spectre” and “Force.”

The majors soon sat up and took notice, and Walker signed to Sony Music in 2015. His first single for the label was “Faded,” a reworked version of “Fade” featuring uncredited lead vocals by fey Oslo pop singer Iselin Solheim, who had burst onto the scene only a couple of years before with her song “The Wizard of Us.” Driven by Solheim’s angelic, ethereal vocal, a melancholy yet catchy melody, and punchy, high-quality production — as well as a dark, dystopian music video shot in a number of crumbling post-industrial locations in Estonia — the song topped the charts in Sweden (where it went nine-times platinum), Germany, France, Italy, his native Norway, and elsewhere around the world.

He later released a stripped-back acoustic “restrung” version with all the EDM elements taken out. Walker made his live debut at the X Games in Oslo in February 2016, followed by a series of high-profile festival appearances. In 2017, Walker dropped the single “Tired,” which featured Irish singer/songwriter Gavin James, and followed in 2018 with “Ignite,” a collaboration with Julie Bergan, K-391, and Seungri. “Darkside” (featuring Au/Ra and Tomine Harket) and “Diamond Heart” (featuring Sophia Somajo) each hit number one on the Norwegian chart and were later included on his chart-topping debut album, Different World, that December. 2019 brought the singles “Are You Lonely” with Steve Aoki and ISÁK and “On My Way” featuring Sabrina Carpenter and Farruko.

Alan Walker Hoodie

He uses a hoodie and face mask resembling the concept of the black bloc on stage to create the rest of the image.

“At the very beginning, we were thinking about ideas like how can we promote Alan Walker as an artist, and then we created a symbol that’s kind of almost attach anyone. Therefore, you can just have the hoodie and the mask and you immediately become a ‘Walker’. That’s also a sign of no matter who you are, you can be a ‘Walker’, we’re all equal.” Walker explained the concept of his look, in an interview by KKBox.
