Have you ever drunk too much and got the shakes the next day- Well that's what DTPM stands for - Delirium Tremens at Post Meridian! . geddit.... You get the shakes (DT's) at night (Pm).
Launched at London's Villa Stefano back in 1993, DTPM introduced a new concept to London clubbing - partying on a Sunday. Outgrowing venues every few years, the night finally moved from The END to FABRIC in 2000 & now packs the place out with over 2000 happy Monday haters. It attracts a mixed, gay-friendly polysexual hedonistic crowd who expect nothing short of excellence from their night out.
This new mixed cd showcases the electric vibes of their acclaimed UK and Australian club nights. It features a selection of quality floor rocking cuts hand-picked and lovingly mixed by long time super residents Alan Thompson & Ariel.

He recently mixed & compiled the huge selling local version of Ministry of Sound Clubbers Guide to 2005, so will be very familiar to Australian audiences.
