1997 - Angel starts playing as a guest dj at The Devonshire Arms in Camden, London.

1998 - Nocturnal Promotions formed by Angel. Created and ran Nocturnal Dreams, a monthly club incorporating the gothic, metal and fetish genres held at The Forum, Royal Tunbridgewells.

1999 - Nocturnal Promotions held gigs for Killing Miranda, Swarf, Deadstar Brides and Womb at The Albert pub in Brighton as well as live bands monthly at The Devonshire Arms with acts such as Sneaky Bat Machine, Leisure Hive and local unsigned gothic bands, which although proved successful, was dissolved after a few months.

In May, Angel found inspiration in the Los Angeles alternative scene when he played Bar Sinister and Coven 13. Upon his return to the UK, he approached the home of heavy metal and Iron Maiden, The Ruskin Arms, and launched a gothic, industrial night on Fridays. He promoted a black metal all-dayer with acts such as Throne Of Nails, Ligature, Frustrum and Solice Denied. He also did a hard core all day event with BDF, Knuckledust and 50 Caliber. Around this time, he was approached to play a night for a group of Goths from Edinburgh, who booked James Ray Gangwar to play a set at the Red Eye music venue near Kings Cross.

2000 - DJ Angel was asked to organise bands on Sundays at The Red Eye in Islington, London. Until the close of the venue, Nocturnal Promotions played host to bands such as Akercocker, Gllibrujer, Two Witches, Occupational Hazard and Interlock.

September 2001 - Angel was approached by Stranger Promotions to fly to New York in order to promote the launch of Slimelight, New York at Long Black Veil with DJ Ian Ford. He also played the party at The Limelight for club Zenwarped.

2002 -The Intrepid Fox in Soho, London was contacted with the idea to become a resident DJ on Saturdays until its closure. This inspired him to move more into the rock and metal glam scene, a passion for many years.

February 2003 - Stranger Promotions again approaches Angel with an offer to play Perversion UK at Slimelight, which ran on a monthly basis until it's sad demise in late 2004.

June 2004 - Angel started another club called Inferno at The Electric Ballroom, which would incorporate rock, metal, industrial and goth in one club. Inferno received rave reviews from magazines such as Alternative London which creates the atmosphere of Full-Tilt, Slimelight and Perversion . Inferno still runs on a monthly basis on the 1st Friday of each month.

2005 - DJ Angel was resident dj for The Mission's Lighting the Candles Tour in 2005 and the launch party for the said dvd was held on August bank holiday Sunday at Inferno.

Nocturnal Promotions wishes to keep the alternative scene alive and is open to being approached by bands. He has a policy of always playing any cd's from unsigned bands with the hope that publicity will accrue interest.
