Tracks he made especially for the Olympics were mixed together and released as the mix compilation Parade of the Athletes later that year. In April 2007 Tiesto launched both his radio show Tiesto Club Life on Radio 538 in the Netherlands and released his third studio album titled Elements of Life. The album reached number one on the Dutch album chart as well on "Billboard Top Electronic Albums" in the U.S. and received a nomination for a Grammy Award in 2008.

Get Swedish House Mafia songs and albums from:
It's three forty five in the morning when SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA – AKA Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell - descend on the DJ booth at their Masquerade Motel night (at Ibiza's legendary Pacha) and drop their undisputed Summer anthem 'One'. Now signed to Virgin Records and powered by a suitably smooth soul vocal from Pharrell Williams, the roar of approval for 'One' is so loud that it's as if they've just stepped out onto the stage at Wembley. What's more, it's a tune so immense that they have no choice but to play it again at the end of the night. Zane Lowe, Pete Tong, Erick Morillo – it seems there isn't anyone in the electronic scene who hasn't been knocked out by the power of 'One'.
"The whole season has been absolutely unbelievable," say house Mafioso Steve Angello, who's never backwards in coming forwards with sound bites. "We're competing with the biggest nights on the island and now we're one of the biggest – I've never seen Pacha like that before. This year everybody came through and it's been an incredible experience."
As for the party, we can't help but notice that this Motel is full of the same raw energy you'd normally see at a rock show – only for these clubbers, 'One' really is the new 'Teen Spirit'. "We did the track in LA together," explains Sebastian Ingrosso. "We actually thought we wouldn't do a track together but after 'Leave The World Behind' with Laidback Luke did so well, we decided to make a track and it came out great." Amazingly, the whole shape of 'One' came together in just two days. Not bad for a record that Beatport has proclaimed the fastest-selling number one download single of all time. "Two days!" laughs Seb. "We had the idea and arrangement done and after that we were bouncing it back and forth for one day. The concept was simple: we had an idea of looping a kick-drum into a bassline but I said it needed a crescendo of in your face melodies." But let's rewind a little. We all know that 'One' is the record that's flipped the script but there are so many other questions we need to be answered.
For example, how did these Swedes meet? Who gave them their name? And are they really direct descendants of the mafia? "Me and Seb met when we were six or seven: we got into all kinds of trouble together!" laughs Steve. "Seb's Dad had a label called Plumphouse and we got into music and did all kinds of weird things including lounge compilations and made music for shows. I even did music for a Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden..." So Team Angello and Ingrosso had been working together for quite some time. "We bumped into Axwell ten years ago now, when he was doing stuff on [the house label] Sulphuric," says Steve. "We got in touch – we were younger than him – and we just clicked. We all learned from each other because we were young kids. Also, when it came to the music, Me and Seb were more rough. I don't tweak a hi-hat for six hours!" And then there was fellow Swede Eric Prydz, who together with Steve created the CR2 smash 'Woz Not Woz in 2004. "We all hung out like friends and started building a relationship. But no-one would give us shows – we had to beg nightclubs to put us on! We begged them to let us play for one hour and everyone loved it. But since no one would touch us, that's why we worked so hard at the start. After that, me and Ax did Supermode (the Communards-sampling 'Tell Me Why' on Data) and me and Seb did a couple of records as Buy Now. We never got the support – until now."
The dynamic of the three and their collective history is the key to the Mafia's continued success. "It's been one hell of a ride," nods Steve. "When the name 'Swedish House Mafia' first popped up, it wasn't something we focused on straight away. People called us that on forums back in the day. But we've been through everything together. I can always lean on one of their shoulders and they can lean on mine. I can always trust their opinions. when I have a track, they tell me straight away what they think. With Swedish House Mafia, you're with friends...."
Everybody knows that Axwell, Steve and Sebastian are separate entities: they all have their own record labels (Axtone, SIZE and Refune respectively) and they all have separate lives and individual concerns. But as the success of their recent sell-out Brixton Academy shows and the growing success of Masquerade Motel will testify, it's what they achieve collectively and as a unit that makes for the most magic. Axwell has already been giving this subject some thought. "Swedish House Mafia is a monster of its own. We've tried to control it and seen it as a bonus but the truth is, it just won't go away. I call it 'IT'! When we work together, shit happens. It's a machine that has a certain electricity that's much stronger than anyone else. Let's see where it takes us." Last summer, the Swedes weren't together as often as they'd hoped but the demand and collective success has dictated that the Mafia must now meet almost every single week. "This Summer 'IT' will be more often than last Summer because we are having such an amazing time. Last year we all lived in Ibiza and we got to hang out quite a bit. But now Steve and I have kids, it will be structured hanging out time." Ingrosso looks at the three of them as bringing different elements to the house music table: "Steve has his underground beats, Axwell is more melodic and I'm more somewhere in between," he reasons.
As Axwell points out, one thing has changed since The Early Days: Steve and Ax are now proud parents while Sebastian is left holding the proverbial baby and keeping an eye on the grown-up kids he's known since school. Has it made things harder or easier, we wonder? "EASIER!" blasts Axwell back. "I think that your kid creates that balance. But the reward is so massive, even travelling to Oz for thirty hours it's worth it. When you're travelling or in the studio, your time is limited so you make the most of it."
And what of Masquerade Motel, the Ibiza home of the Mafia? It's a club concept that's been picking up plaudits since the season begun. Is it a similar vibe to last year or different, we wonder? "I hope that it's not too different," says Axwell. "It's just faster and more polished and we're drinking more gasoline. I guess that the difference with Ibiza is it's our second year so we have some routine and experience. The first year is about building your crowd so hopefully we can harvest some fruits from the crop we planted last year. I think we're more relaxed. As for the club, it's an intimate party vibe – we want you to feel like you're a part of a private after-party."
The other thing that's changed is Swedish House Mafia have signed a 360 deal with Virgin/EMI. As they all acknowledge, it's a Big Deal. Ingrosso again: "it's a long term commitment and they're involved in gigs and live shows as well as the music. SHM is bigger than any of us – and we needed a serious partner to control it and that's what they do." But who and what have Virgin/EMI signed exactly? It's three people, three producers and three pairs of eyes and ears perfectly aligned together. And the deal is a huge step forward for dance music and DJ culture suggesting that major labels are showing faith in electronic music again. Their next single 'Miami 2 Ibiza', meanwhile, will feature Tinie Tempah. Axwell again: "I'm so pleased about this. It's so nice to be a part of something that's bigger than yourself. We all have our solo careers but this excites people on a different level."
So life is looking good for the Mafia right now. "What we do: it's a show," reasons Seb. "Look at Brixton: it's a show. People want confetti and they want to get something out of it. You can't just DJ and look at your shoes! Now dance music is really big and we have an opportunity to take this further." But we'll leave it to Axwell to have the final word as he's in a particularly thoughtful place at the end of the interview. "I think that it's a lovely job to DJ and produce and share the passion for music that we have. It's pretty simple and very natural. We're not a manufactured thing – we're musical brothers."

Get The Chemical Brothers songs and albums from:
The Chemical Brothers are a British electronic music duo composed of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons originating in Manchester in 1991. Along with The Prodigy, Fatboy Slim, The Crystal Method, and fellow acts, they were pioneers at bringing the big beat genre to the forefront of pop culture. In the UK, they have had five number one albums and 13 top 20 singles, including two number ones.
The duo have won a number of awards throughout their career, including four Grammy Awards—twice for Best Electronic/Dance Album, and in 2000 won the Brit Award for Best British Dance Act.
Formation and early career (1984–1995)
Ed Simons was born in Herne Hill, South London on 9 June 1970 to a barrister mother and a father who was not around much when Simons was growing up. Simons' two main interests when he was young were aeroplanes and musicals. Simons attended two South London public schools, Alleyn's School and Dulwich College. During his school years, he developed a fondness for rare groove and Hip hop music, having frequented a club called The Mud Club from the age of 14. By the time he left school, his two main musical interests were two Manchester bands, New Order and The Smiths. After finishing school with 11 O levels and three A-levels, he continued on to study history, especially late medieval history, at the University of Manchester.
Tom Rowlands, a childhood classmate of Simons', was born on 11 January 1971 in Kingston upon Thames, London. When Rowlands was very young, his family relocated to Henley-on-Thames. He later attended Reading Blue Coat School in Berkshire, during which time he became obsessed with Scotland, developing a fondness for the bagpipes in particular. In his early teens, his interest in music broadened to other genres. Initially, some of his favourites included the Oh What a Lovely War soundtrack, 2 Tone, the nascent gothic rock genre (Sisters of Mercy, Fields of the Nephilim) and the electro sounds of artists such as Kraftwerk, New Order, Cabaret Voltaire, and Heaven 17. He described the first Public Enemy album as the record that probably changed his life, and commented that "Miuzi Weighs a Ton" was one of the most amazing tracks he had ever heard. Rowlands also started collecting hip hop records by artists like Eric B and Schoolly D. Rowlands left school with similar accomplishments to Simons', achieving nine O levels and three A levels. For university, he followed Simons to Manchester primarily to immerse himself in its music scene in general and the Haçienda in particular.
Rowlands was also in a band called Ariel prior to meeting up with Simons. Ariel was formed in London by Rowlands and his friends Brendan Melck and Matt Berry. Their first single was "Sea of Beats", which was essentially a white label. Before Philip Brown set up Echo Logik Records, their first promo was "Bokadilo". Other songs, released on 12", included "Mustn't Grumble" and their most well-known, "Rollercoaster". After a year on Echo Logik they signed to the record label deConstruction. They insisted that they get a female singer and they recruited former Xpansions frontwoman Sally Ann Marsh, and after some disappointing songs like "Let It Slide" (Rowlands would later describe it as "a stinker") the band fell apart. One of the last things Ariel did was the song "T Baby" which was remixed by the pair. In regards to the remix, Ed stated that "Ariel symbolically ended when Deconstruction asked us for a Dust Brothers remix of an Ariel track. That was the final nail in the coffin". Tom would later say in a TV interview from 1995: "One of the blokes went a bit mad, but now he's back at college, and the other one drives our van".
Rowlands and Simons then started to DJ at a club called "Naked Under Leather" in the back of a pub in 1992 under the alias of "The 237 Turbo Nutters" (named after the number of their house on Dickenson Road in Manchester and a reference to their Blackburn raving days). The pair would play hip hop, techno, and house. Rowlands and Simons called themselves The Dust Brothers, after the US production duo famous for their work with the Beastie Boys. After a while, they began to run out of suitable instrumental hip hop tracks to use, so they started to make their own. Using a Hitachi hi-fi system, a computer, a sampler, and a keyboard, they recorded "Song to the Siren", which sampled This Mortal Coil. "Song to the Siren" was released on their own record label, called "Diamond Records" (after Ed's nickname). In October 1992, they pressed 500 white label copies and took them to various dance record shops around London, but none would play it, saying that it was too slow (the track played at 111 BPM). They sent a copy to London DJ Andrew Weatherall, who made it a permanent fixture in his DJ sets. Weatherall also signed the band to his Junior Boy's Own label. In May 1993, Junior Boy's Own released "Song to the Siren".
Around June 1993, the Dust Brothers did their first remixes. The first was "Packet of Peace" for Justin Robertson's Lionrock outfit, followed by tracks for Leftfield, Republica, and The Sandals. Late in 1993, The Dust Brothers completed work on their Fourteenth Century Sky EP, released in January 1994. It contained the ground-breaking "Chemical Beats", which epitomized the duo's genre-defining big beat sound, later taken up by Fatboy Slim and many more. The EP also contained "One Too Many Mornings", which for the first time showed the less intense, more chilled-out side of The Dust Brothers. Both "One Too Many Mornings" and "Chemical Beats" would later appear on their debut album. Fourteenth Century Sky was followed later in 1993 by the My Mercury Mouth EP. "Chemical Beats" was also part of the soundtrack for the first edition of the Wipeout games series, having been featured in Wipeout for the PlayStation in 1995.
In October 1994, The Dust Brothers became resident DJs at the small, but hugely influential Heavenly Sunday Social Club at the Albany pub in London's Great Portland Street. The likes of Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, James Dean Bradfield, and Tim Burgess were regular visitors. The Dust Brothers were subsequently asked to remix tracks by Manic Street Preachers and The Charlatans, plus Primal Scream's "Jailbird" and The Prodigy's "Voodoo People". These two remixes received television exposure, being playlisted by MTV Europe's "The Party Zone" in 1995. Early in 1994, The Dust Brothers were approached in the club one Sunday by Noel Gallagher, from Oasis, who at the time were becoming one of the most prominent guitar bands in Britain. Gallagher told the duo that he had a Balearic-inspired track which he had written and would like the Dust Brothers to remix. However, over time, Gallagher changed his mind, and in the end the Brothers did not remix it.
In March 1995, The Dust Brothers began their first international tour, which included the United States – where they played with Orbital and Underworld – then a series of European festivals. Also around this time, the original Dust Brothers threatened legal action over the use of their name, and so Rowlands and Simons had to decide on a new name quickly. They decided to then call themselves "The Chemical Brothers" after "Chemical Beats" (Simons' grandmother had suggested they call themselves "The Grit Brothers").
In June 1995, they released their fourth single, the first under their new identity. "Leave Home" was released on Junior Boy's Own, as a preview of the imminent debut album and became the band's first chart hit, peaking at No. 17.
Exit Planet Dust and Dig Your Own Hole (1995–1998)
In July 1995, The Chemical Brothers released their debut album Exit Planet Dust (the title inspired by their name change) on Freestyle Dust/Junior Boy's Own. It entered the UK charts at No. 9 and featured guest vocalist Beth Orton on the song "Alive Alone". It eventually went on to sell over a million copies worldwide, and was used on the soundtrack of the science fiction TV series pilot Virtuality. Shortly after its release, The Chemical Brothers signed to Virgin Records, to which they took their own offshoot label, Freestyle Dust. For their next single, "Life Is Sweet", released in September 1995, they again used a guest vocalist, featuring their friend Tim Burgess, singer of The Charlatans. It reached No. 25 in the singles charts. The single was also Select magazine's "Single of the Month" for October. The release included a Daft Punk remix of "Life Is Sweet".
In August 1995, The Chemical Brothers DJ'ed for Oasis at a Sheffield gig. The gig began to backfire when it became apparent that Liam Gallagher didn't seem to like any of the tracks they were spinning. The closest that they could come to pleasing him was the Happy Mondays' "Wrote for Luck". Gallagher proceeded to kick The Chemical Brothers off the turntables and procured a friend from The Verve to continue to DJ. He subsequently favoured psychedelic material to the displeasure of the crowd.
Around this period, The Stone Roses asked the Chemical Brothers to remix "Begging You", from their Second Coming album. After beginning work on a remix which they viewed as having potential, The Stone Roses changed their minds and the project was cancelled.
In October 1995, the duo returned to the Heavenly Sunday Social for a second and final run of DJ dates. They then became residents at the Heavenly Social on Saturdays at Turnmills. In November, The Chemical Brothers played the Astoria Theatre in London. At this time the Brothers usually used a fusion of "Chemical Beats" and The Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows" as their encore. During the encore, however, Keith Flint from The Prodigy jumped up on stage to dance, wearing a T-shirt sporting the slogan "Occupation: mad bastard". A few from the crowd subsequently joined in. This resulted in a power cable being kicked loose, bringing the show to a temporary close. The Chemical Brothers confessed to not being too bothered; "because he's Keith from The Prodigy, and he can do whatever the fucking hell he likes". Just before Christmas, 1995, they played their biggest gig to date, with The Prodigy, at the Brixton Academy.
In January 1996, Exit Planet Dust went gold. The Chemical Brothers released their first new material in six months on Virgin, the Loops of Fury EP. The four-track release was limited to 20,000 copies, but is now available for digital download. It entered the UK charts at No. 13. NME described the lead track as "splashing waves of synths across hard-hitting beats". The EP also contained a Dave Clarke remix of "Chemical Beats", and two other new tracks, "Get Up on It Like This" and "(The Best Part Of) Breaking Up".
In February 1996, Select magazine published a list of the 100 best albums of the 1990s thus far. Exit Planet Dust was listed at Number 39. In August 1996, The Chemical Brothers supported Oasis at Knebworth, where 125,000 people attended each of the two shows.
During the 1995 Glastonbury Festival, Rowlands and Simons had another conversation with Noel Gallagher. Gallagher told them how much he liked Exit Planet Dust, and asked if he could sing on a future track, similar to the way Tim Burgess had worked on "Life Is Sweet". They didn't think much of the offer at the time, given how busy Gallagher would be with the release of Oasis' (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, plus the complexities of dealing with each other's record companies. However, the duo later worked on a track which they thought would benefit from having a vocal on it. They sent Gallagher a tape of what they had done so far. He worked on it overnight, and left a message with them early the next morning that he was ready to record it. The track was called "Setting Sun" and was finally released in October 1996. It entered the UK charts at the top, giving the duo their first ever Number One single. "Setting Sun" was backed by a longer instrumental version, and also a new track "Buzz Tracks", which was not much more than a DJ tool. The three remaining members of The Beatles' lawyers later wrote to The Chemical Brothers, mistakenly claiming that they had sampled "Tomorrow Never Knows". Virgin Records hired a musicologist to prove that they did not sample the classic 1960s psychedelic song.
Meanwhile, in 1996, Live at the Social Volume 1 was released by Heavenly Records, which became The Chemical Brothers' first mix CD (excluding Xmas Dust Up, a free album that came in a 1994 issue of NME). It was also the duo's first and only live album (excluding the EP Live 05).
In March 1997, the Brothers released the second track from their forthcoming album, to give the world a further taste of what to expect. "Block Rockin' Beats" went straight to No. 1 in the UK, possibly thanks, this time, to its Schoolly D vocal sample and re-working of the bassline from 23 Skidoo's single "Coup". The NME named it "Single of the Week" and said "It throbs like your head might if you had just done a length underwater in a swimming pool full of amyl." It later won them a Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.
In the US at this time, "Setting Sun" was sitting at Number 80 in the Billboard Top 100, after selling around 80,000 copies, an uncommon achievement for a European "dance" act. Sales from Exit Planet Dust were also around 150,000.
On 7 April 1997 The Chemical Brothers released their second album, Dig Your Own Hole. It was recorded at the band's own south London studio, with the title taken from graffiti on the wall outside. The album was well received,[dead link] with Mixmag rating it 10/10 and calling it "mad enough to be thrilling, slick enough for not even remotely trendy coffee tables".
During the summer of 1997, the Brothers toured extensively, particularly in the United States. They also became residents at Tokyo's Liquid Rooms. In August, The Chemical Brothers achieved rapprochement with the US Dust Brothers, and asked them to remix the forthcoming single "Elektrobank". They themselves also became highly sought-after for remixes for other artists. In September, the next single from Dig Your Own Hole, "Elektrobank" was released. In November, the pair played at Dublin's Point Theatre, with support from Carl Cox. They also began a US tour in Detroit.
At the end of the year, Dig Your Own Hole's final track, the nine minute-long "The Private Psychedelic Reel", gave rise to a limited-edition mini-EP of the same name. The B-side consisted of a live version of "Setting Sun", recorded at the Lowlands Festival, Netherlands on 24 August 1997. Also in December, following four sold-out US shows, The Chemical Brothers toured the UK, finishing with a sold-out gig at London's Brixton Academy.
In 1998, they concentrated more on DJ'ing, although some remixes did see the light of day, including "I Think I'm in Love" from Spiritualized. Both a vocal remix and an instrumental remix were included in the single release. Each clocked in at over seven-and-a-half minutes. Another remix completed by the Brothers was "Delta Sun Bottleneck Stomp" by Mercury Rev. This was another extension in the association between the two bands, since Mercury Rev's Jonathon Donahue contributed to "The Private Psychedelic Reel" on Dig Your Own Hole.
In September 1998, a second mix album, Brothers Gonna Work It Out, was released. It contains some of their own tracks and remixes, as well as songs from artists who have influenced their sound, such as Renegade Soundwave, Meat Beat Manifesto, Carlos "After Dark" Berrios, and Kenny 'Dope' Gonzales.
Surrender and Come with Us (1999–2002)
In May 1999, The Chemical Brothers played three UK dates in Manchester, Sheffield and Brighton, their first since December 1997. Also that month, they released their first new original material in two years, a track called "Hey Boy, Hey Girl". This was more house-influenced than hip hop. In interviews at the time, Rowlands and Simons indicated that the track was inspired by nights out at Sheffield club Gatecrasher. The track was also one of their more commercially accessible tracks and went to number 3 in the UK charts. Their third album, Surrender, was released in June 1999. It featured vocals from Noel Gallagher, Mercury Rev's Jonathan Donahue, and Mazzy Star's Hope Sandoval. As "Hey Boy, Hey Girl" had suggested, the album was more house-oriented than the previous two. On one of the album's stand out tracks, "Out of Control", New Order's Bernard Sumner supported by Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie provided vocals. It reached No. 1 in the UK album charts,. The Michel Gondry-directed music video for "Let Forever Be", which utilized ground-breaking video and film effects in its depiction of a young woman's nightmares, also received a lot of attention.
Later that summer, The Brothers performed at the infamous Woodstock 99 concert on 24 July, with positive reception. They later headlined the Glastonbury dance tent on the Friday night, followed by a UK tour which ended in December and included Homelands Scotland on 4 September. In November, "Out of Control", featuring Sumner and Gillespie on vocals, was released as a single. The release also contained the Sasha remix. The final single from Surrender, in February 2000, was the five track "Music: Response" EP, containing the title track and two remixes, plus Electronic Battle Weapon 4, named "Freak of the Week", and a track called "Enjoyed", which was essentially a remix of "Out of Control" by the Brothers themselves. A CD copy of Surrender was placed in the third Blue Peter time capsule, buried in January 2000. That same month, they appeared on Primal Scream's album Xtrmntr at track 11 with a remix.
In June 2000, Tom and Ed played the Pyramid stage at the Glastonbury Festival. In August 2000 they played to a large crowd at the main stage at Creamfields festival, Ireland. In December 2000, The Chemical Brothers aired one of their new tracks, "It Began in Afrika" at their New York DJ gigs, supporting U2.
In 2001, they were quite active with releases and live performances. Early in the year, they began working on a fourth album, provisionally titled Chemical Four. The first track which fans got a taste of was "It Began in Afrika", as previously played in their DJ set in New York. The track would make its live debut in California in April 2001, at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Another new track, "Galaxy Bounce", also got its public debut at Coachella. As had become customary for their releases and experiments, "It Began in Afrika" was first pressed as a promo, as part of the "Electronic Battle Weapon" series. It received much airplay on dance music radio shows in the UK, and became more and more popular in clubs over the course of the summer. It also became one of the "anthems" in Ibiza as the summer progressed. It was given a full commercial single release in September, reaching No. 8 in the UK singles chart, even though no promotional video was made for the track.
Rowlands and Simons also remixed a track from Fatboy Slim's Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars, entitled "Song for Shelter". This remix was released as a single on 3 September 2001 (one week before "It Began in Afrika") as the CD2 single for "Song for Shelter / Ya Mama". It reached No. 30 in the UK Singles Charts (sales were combined with the CD1 single).
The Chemical Brothers finished work on another album, Come with Us, in October 2001. It featured collaborations with Richard Ashcroft of The Verve ("The Test"), and long-time collaborator Beth Orton ("The State We're In"). The album was released in January 2002, preceded by a single, "Star Guitar", a melodic Balearic beat number, with a promotional video by Michel Gondry that featured passing scenery synchronized to the beat viewed through a train window. What would be the second track on the album, "It Began in Afrika", was released 10 September 2001 to be circulated around the clubbing scene where it was a popular hit. "Star Guitar" was also released as a DVD single, the pair's first. Come with Us, was less well received than their previous albums, but nonetheless went straight to No. 1 in the UK Albums Chart in the first week of its release, selling 100,000 copies. In April, the title track from the album was released as a single with remixes by Fatboy Slim as part of a double A-sided release with "The Test".
During the summer of 2002, The Chemical Brothers traveled the festival circuit to promote the album. Later in 2002, they released two EPs, one specifically aimed at Japan and the other the US (entitled AmericanEP). Both contained remixes, live versions and B-sides. Additionally, the band produced New Order's final non-album single "Here to Stay", and remixed the song as well. One of their other major songs from this album was "Galaxy Bounce", which was popular and featured as the main title music for the Xbox game Project Gotham Racing. It was also included on the soundtrack for the movie Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. "Star Guitar" was featured as a song on the PSP's Lumines II. Two other songs, "Come with Us (Introduction)" and "Star Guitar (Title Screen)", were featured on a PlayStation 2 racing game titled WRC II: Extreme. Both songs are instrumental. The Song My Elastic Eye from the Come with Us album was played in the 2004 movie The Butterfly Effect starring Ashton Kutcher and Amy Smart.
Push the Button (2002–2006)
Late 2002 and early 2003 saw Rowlands and Simons back in the studio working on new material, including "The Golden Path", a collaboration with Wayne Coyne, the lead singer of The Flaming Lips. This was released in September 2003, at the same time as a "best of" album, entitled Singles 93–03, marking ten years of The Chemical Brothers' releases. Singles 93–03 included most, but not all, of their singles. A second new track, in addition to "The Golden Path", was included on the album, called "Get Yourself High". Singles 93–03 was also released on DVD, with extra features including selected live performances and interviews with Rowlands, Simons, and many of their collaborators from throughout the period. "Get Yourself High", which featured Canadian rapper k-os on vocals, was released as a single in November 2003.
In late 2003 and 2004, The Chemical Brothers continued to work in the studio on new material and a remix of "Slow" by Kylie Minogue. After being released on rare white label vinyl, it was subsequently given a commercial release in March on CD (on her next single "Red Blooded Woman") and on exclusive 12" vinyl picture disc (containing two other Kylie remixes). In Summer 2004 they returned to the festival circuit, including appearances at the Glastonbury Festival, Tokyo, Scotland, and Ireland. They also visited South America for the second time (the first time being in 1999), arriving at Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. It was during these sets that they played new material, including "Acid Children", which proved to be one of the most popular new tracks.
In September 2004, The Chemical Brothers released the seventh "Electronic Battle Weapon". "Electronic Battle Weapon 7" was being released as a one-sided promo-only 12", containing "Acid Children". A marked departure from the Chemical Brothers' previous musical endeavours, it featured a screeching 303 bassline and a distinctive vocal sample; a pitch-altered vocal sample proclaiming "You Are All My Children Now!", which is lifted from the horror film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge. It was coupled with the projection of a sinister clown mouthing these same words at their live gigs.
The Electronic Battle Weapon series of promo releases have typically been newly recorded Chemical Brothers tracks, released on promo to allow DJs to test them in a club environment, and to gauge their popularity.
In 2004, The Chemical Brothers began work on Push the Button, their fifth studio album, which features collaborations with Tim Burgess, Kele Okereke, and Anwar Superstar, amongst others. The album was released on 24 January 2005.
"Galvanize", which features rapper Q-Tip on vocals, was the first single to be taken from Push the Button, and premiered exclusively on iTunes. The single was released on 17 January 2005, and entered the UK chart at No. 3. The second single, "Believe" (featuring Kele Okereke from Bloc Party), failed to crack the top 10, but still made it into the top 20, peaking at No. 18. "The Boxer", featuring Tim Burgess, became the duo's first single to fail to crack the top 40.
The album and single "Galvanize" won a Grammy at the Grammy Awards of 2006. One of the songs in this album, "The Big Jump", appears in the video game Burnout Revenge, as well as Project Gotham Racing 3. The track "Surface to Air" features a pulsing chord progression and bassline reminiscent of the intro to the Strokes song "The Modern Age".[original research?]
An unofficial, remixed version of the album entitled Flip the Switch was released as a free download, along with the Believe EP, featuring six further remixes of "Believe".[dead link]
In September 2006, The Chemical Brothers were revealed as the first musicians to be involved in Tate Tracks. Tate Modern invited various groups and songwriters to choose a work that inspired them from the gallery's collection of modern art and then write a track about it. The Chemical Brothers' submission, Rock Drill, was inspired by the Jacob Epstein sculpture Torso in Metal from The Rock Drill, and could be heard on headphones in front of the work in the gallery. From October 2006, it also became available to hear online at the Tate Tracks website.
We Are the Night (2007–2009)
The Brothers announced in June 2006 on their official web forum that the duo had been working on fresh material, specifically an album, codenamed "Chemical 6".[dead link] Simons also wrote that the band would be playing select venues in the Summer 2007 season, specifying Rome, and also Fabric in London. Simons is also quoted as saying that the duo are "hoping to put a battle weapon out for the summer"[dead link], possibly referring to the Electronic Battle Weapon series, the somewhat experimental tracks the band occasionally release on white label.
Electronic Battle Weapons 8 & 9 were debuted on Pete Tong's BBC Radio 1 show on 8 December 2006. The double sided vinyl was finally released just before The Chemical Brother's much anticipated New Year's Eve gig at the famous Turnmills in London. The vinyl had a limited edition release worldwide and has been received well by fans, DJs, and critics alike. Electronic Battle Weapon 8, at about six and a half minutes, is very distinct from the "big acid" style that the earlier Battle Weapons adhered to. It is characterised by 'thundering' drums with a rising synth line. A version of this track features on the We Are the Night album and is entitled "Saturate". "Electronic Battle Weapon 9" is a typical Chemicals dancefloor track with their trademark vocoder vocals coupled with sirens and a basic 'tribal' melody.
At the same Turnmills gig, the Brothers also played a previously unreleased song at midnight to welcome 2007, which went down well with the crowd. This track eventually emerged as "Burst Generator", found on the forthcoming album We Are the Night. Many were left wondering if the latest in the Electronic Battle Weapon series were simply one off experiments or signal a new direction they could take with the new album, perhaps swaying from their genre defining big beat albums of the past. The song was also the band's 100th released song.
On 21 March 2007, The Chemical Brothers officially announced their forthcoming album on MySpace. The new album, entitled We Are the Night, was released on 2 July 2007 in the United Kingdom and 17 July 2007 in the United States. The Chemical Brothers cited a delay in the production of artwork for this delay.[dead link] EMI subsequently released an online Chemical Brothers computer game as an apology. The track listing was released to the fans on the official mailing list on 10 April. The new album is heavily collaborated, with the likes of Klaxons ("All Rights Reversed"), Midlake ("The Pills Won't Help You Now"), Ali Love ("Do It Again"), and Willy Mason ("Battle Scars").
On 12 April 2007, Pete Tong again had the privilege of giving the world the very first preview of a Chemicals track. This time it was the first single "Do It Again" off their new album, aired on his BBC Radio 1 "In New Music We Trust" show.. The official release of the single was 4 June (digital download) and 14 June (12", 7", and CD). The album went on general release in the UK on 2 July 2007.
In September 2007, The Chemical Brothers played a free live gig in Trafalgar Square as part of the Becks Fusions event. All who attended were provided with 3D glasses to view the on-screen visual effects.
In 2008, The Chemical Brothers' music was featured in a movie adaption of Irvine Welsh's best-selling novel Ecstasy: Three Tales of Chemical Romance.
The Chemical Brothers supplied a new track for the Heroes soundtrack, titled "Keep My Composure".
Further, Hanna, Don't Think and Black Swan (2010–present)
On 30 March 2010, the band announced on their website that their seventh studio album, titled Further, would be released on 22 June and would be "the band's first to be released with corresponding films made specifically to match each of the 8 audio tracks." The films were made with long-time visuals collaborators Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall. The album was described as their most "psychedelic and melodic to date".[by whom?] Before the release of the album, the band played four shows in May at the London Roundhouse where they played the album and its accompanying films in their entirety. The films featured on a special edition DVD and on the iTunes LP edition.[dead link]
Most reviews have been positive, with BBC Music declaring that "... synths are brutally manhandled and pushed to their limits across the eight tracks". The Irish Times reported that "This is a very impressive collection that is carried along with a stirring sense of velocity and momentum".[dead link] However, praise was not unanimous for the album, with the American rock magazine Spin giving it a rating of three out of five stars.
At the New York Comic Con, on 10 October 2010, English film director Joe Wright announced that The Chemical Brothers would be scoring the soundtrack to his upcoming film, Hanna. Wright, who had worked with The Chemical Brothers in the past as a member of the visual company Vegetable Vision, stated that he was "very excited to finally ... work with a more modern beat. There's a lot of bass, it's very loud." The soundtrack was released exclusively on iTunes on 15 March 2011 and on CD on 4 July 2011.
Two weeks after the announcement regarding Hanna, rumors began circulating that The Chemical Brothers had recorded part of the score for the movie Black Swan, after a post in Ed Simon's Twitter account. A second post on the Chemical Brothers' own Twitter account seemed to confirm this. On 22 November 2010, a Black Swan music video was released along with the movie trailer. This featured a different version of the track "Don't Think" and announced that the movie would feature new music from The Chemical Brothers, along with a handful of other artists. The next day, the names of the eight tracks not composed by Clint Mansell – Black Swan's main composer – were released, listing The Chemical Brothers as contributing three new songs for the movie. On 29 November, an exclusive video was posted on RollingStone.com, containing more footage of the alternate version of "Don't Think". Mansell's work was released the next day. No announcement has been made yet on whether the original tracks not by Mansell would be given a release or not.
On 7 March 2012, it was announced that The Chemical Brothers would be scoring their second movie soundtrack, for the bank heist film Now You See Me. However, this was later denied by Tom Rowlands, who stated that the band was in talks at an early stage, but had to pull out of the project due to scheduling conflicts.
The Chemical Brothers are credited as being one of the few truly arena-sized electronic acts. Their live acts comprise large screens displaying psychedelic images, strobe lights, and lasers that project over the crowd. There has been speculation over how much of their live gigs are pre-recorded, although they insist (on their official website FAQ) that they have a mere outline of track order and the rest is mixed live. This would seem to be confirmed by concertgoers who have seen gigs on consecutive nights and have posted notable differences between the sets played.
The Brothers have also played at many major festivals, including Glastonbury, Fuji Rock, Reading, the HFStival, and Leeds festival. They currently hold the record for most gigs performed in a year at the Brixton Academy. The brothers have infamously, despite their high status in the mainstream, never appeared on Top of the Pops, with the use of music videos to replace the performance, sometimes accompanied by a video apologising for their absence. In 1999, a live US tour video of "Hey Boy, Hey Girl" was shown, even though the song was not in the top 40 at the time, and also released other singles before then at the time.
In addition to performing their own music, they also hold regular DJ nights where they mix other artist's tracks (in the style of Brothers Gonna Work It Out).
As with their recorded albums, The Chemical Brothers are well known for their incorporation of guest vocalists into their live performances. Notable appearances in recent gigs have included Bernard Sumner of New Order, who sang on the original "Out of Control", Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips, and Tim Burgess.
The typeface used to write the typical "The Chemical Brothers" logo is derived from Sho, designed by Karlgeorg Hoefer in 1992. The Chemical Brothers' original logo differs only in a few details from orthodox Sho, e.g. in the letters a and b. Mergenthaler Linotype Company holds the licence for this typeface.

Get Nicky Romero songs and albums from:
It was January 6th, 1989 when young Dutchman Nicky Romero saw his first light of day. Born and raised in a small city called Amerongen, Nicky developed an interest for music at a very young age. At the age of 6 he hit his first snare drum after joining a marching band and this is where it all kicked off for young Nicky. After saving up for a little while, Nicky obtained his first drum kit and started banging away at it like there was no tomorrow. For the next three years there was only one beat to be heard in the Romero household, Nicky's beat, practising the drums day and night.
Being bored with the drum kit, made way for a brand new set of turntables. Studying and practising his mixing skills were mainly what Nicky's life consisted of at the time. Already flirting with the idea of making his own music and rocking the crowds some day. When Nicky finished school, the path was clear and the objective was set, producing music became not only a career, but a way of life!

Get Headhunterz songs and albums from:
Willem Rebergen, better known by his stage name Headhunterz, is a Dutch DJ and music producer. He also done voice-acting for several movies and TV series. He kicked off his career in 2005, and grew into one of the biggest names in hardstyle music, becoming a major contribution to its growing popularity worldwide. He has performed at major events and festivals, including Qlimax, Defqon.1, Q-Base, inQontrol, Decibel and Hard Bass and has performed at popular electronic music festivals Electric Daisy Carnival and Tomorrowland. For the majority of his career Headhunterz has released his work on Scantraxx through his own sub-label, Scantraxx Reloaded, but in 2013 he started his own record label, HARDwithSTYLE. He signed with major North American electronic dance music label, Ultra Music in 2013 and left his own label in 2015, heading for a different musical direction.
Early Life & Career
Willem Rebergen was born on 12 September 1985 in Veenendaal, Netherlands. From an early age Rebergen had an interest in music. Having struggled with bullying at school, Rebergen looked for a distraction to make himself happy and so joined a local kid's choir. From here it was where he had his first exposure to a professional studio, recording Christmas albums with the choir. This experience left Rebergen interested and inspired by the process of creating music from the other side of the studio. In 2003, while working at a clothing store he was offered tickets to Qlimax from friends who could not attend. This was his first exposure to hardstyle music. This experience gave him the impetus to forge a music career and in his own words from then on he was "devoted to hardstyle and from that point interested in how to make the music. I wanted to make that kind of music."
He purchased some turntables and connected them to his mixer practicing his DJing, while also simultaneously making music in FL Studio, a digital audio workstation. Rebergen began sending demos out to labels under the alias Nasty D-Tuners, a duo project he formed with close friend Bobby van Putten. In 2004 Nasty D-Tuners entered and won the 2004 Defqon.1 DJ contest, winning a spot on the lineup.
Following the continued success of their DJ career's, Rebergen and van Putten heard of a new hard dance music label "Hardcontrol", that was opening in Veenendaal. In 2005, a year and a half after their performance at Defqon 2004, Nasty D-Tuners were signed to Hardcontrol Records having two successful releases, with their work being played by then major Hardstyle producers/DJ's. Also in 2005, Rebergen and van Putten began attending a DJ class at the Rock Academy in the Netherlands. Rebergen found his time at the academy frustrating, due to a lack of encouragement towards producing Hardstyle and negative responses to the genre as a whole. Alienated by his experience at the Academy, Rebergen continued to send out Nasty D-Tuners demos to respective labels, one eventually reaching Scantraxx founder, Dov Elkabas aka The Prophet. Seeing promise in the exciting young duo, having heard of their performance at Defqon.1, 'Nasty D-Tuners' were signed to Scantraxx in late 2005. Unable to keep the alias 'Nasty D-Tuners' due to disagreements with the former label, the name Headhunterz was chosen. By the end of 2005, Rebergen and van Putten had performed at major hardstyle events including Defqon.1, Q-Base and The Prophet's X-Qlusive, all of which increased their profile within the Hardstyle scene.
2006-2007: Scantraxx & the beginning of Headhunterz
2006 saw the first Headhunterz release "Aiming for Your Brain/ Left Some Answers", on Scantraxx Special. Their debut release was soon followed by a second "The Sacrifice/D-Tuned", again on Scantraxx Special."The Sacrifice" was the duo's best hit to date, Rebergen since stating his fond memories of the positive reception that The Prophet gave him the first time he heard it. However, problems soon began to emerge when Rebergen came to the conclusion that he would be unable to perform and record for Scantraxx while simultaneously completing his course at the Rock Academy. Rebergen told van Putten of his decision to leave the Academy and hoped he would join and commit himself to Headhunterz and Scantraxx. Bobby van Putten then made the difficult decision to leave Rebergen, Scantraxx and Headhunterz and continue with his musical studies at the Rock Academy. Rebergen's first solo performance as Headhunterz was the 2006 edition of the Q-Dance event, Defqon.1. Following the final release of van Putten credited Headhunterz work, Scantraxx gave Rebergen, his own sub label Scantraxx Reloaded which he would administer. Headhunterz first release on Scantraxx Reloaded was the three track Vinyl EP "Victim of My Rage" released in late 2006. The Prophet continued to nurture the young talent, inviting Headhunterz to perform alongside him at the popular annual Q-Dance event, Qlimax.
2007 proved to be an incredibly successful year for Headhunterz. He had his first collaborations with fellow Scantraxx artists The Prophet and Abject(A.K.A DJ Frontliner). Along with the collaborations Headhunterz also released several successful solo tracks such as "Forever Az One" and "Rock Civilization". Headhunterz continued to solidify his reputation as one of the biggest headline DJ's in hardstyle by performing at the 2007 editions of Q-Base and Qlimax. He was given the privilege of creating his first major Anthem for the 2007 edition of Qlimax, "The Power of the Mind". Headhunterz subsequently had his first solo performance at Qlimax and played alongside his DJ heroes, Technoboy and The Prophet.
2008: Headhunterz & Wildstylez Presents: Project One
In 2008, Headhunterz had his first collaboration with fellow Scantraxx label artist, Wildstylez. Their First release "Blame It On the Music / Project 1" released in March, proved a success and provided the impetus for the launch of a new project and debut album for the pair, Project One. Finishing in under three months, producing an average of one track a week, Headhunterz and Wildstylez completed their 13 track debut album, Headhunterz & Wildstylez Present: Project One. The album was planned to be debuted at In Qontrol in a special 1 hour set, showcasing the album. This performance was cancelled when Headhunterz suffered a bout of Appendicitis. The Album was then debuted at Defqon.1 2008. It was officially released shortly after in both CD and Digital formats on July 25 with Dutch graphical designer, Ruud van Eijk providing the artwork. Project One was extremely well received in the Hardstyle community with tracks such as '"Life Beyond Earth", "The Art of Creation", "The Story Unfolds", "Best of Both Worlds" and "Fantasy or Reality" all proving to be successes on the dance floor. The Album was a defining influence on the direction Hardstyle would take in the years to come, with its emphasis on synth based trance influenced melodies and heavy use of pitched kicks. A Project One Tour followed along with 6 full-length album samplers and 1 remix sampler, all released on Scantraxx Reloaded. Along with Project One, Headhunterz had three solo releases that included popular tracks "Just Say My Name", "Subsonic" and "Reloaded Part 2" all on Scantraxx Reloaded, along with a first collaboration with Italian Hardstyle DJ Tatanka, "Call It Music".
2009-2011: Studio Sessions & HARDwithSTYLE
2009 saw Headhunterz release seven new Singles/EPs. Amongst these releases was the 2009 Defqon.1 Anthem, "Scrap Attack". This opportunity to create the anthem, saw Headhunterz close the Mainstage of Defqon.1 for the first time. Speaking about the moment, Headhunterz stated that he achieved one of his long-term goals within Hardstyle that night and felt "complete happiness". Along with the anthem, 2009 was a notable year in regards to collaborations for Headhunterz. He again teamed up with Wildstylez and along with Noisecontrollers created the incredibly popular, anthem like, "Tonight". In a Q-Dance top 1000 harderstyles poll held in late 2013, "Tonight" was voted into second place. "The Summer of Hardstyle", made with The Prophet, proved to be an instant hit at events. Gaining inspiration from older Hardstyle DJ, Zenith, the track was a break from recent Headhunterz work with its emphasis on Reverse bass and simple scratching sounds from vinyl. The Project One Tour reached its finale with a first time visit to Australia. The duo making multiple appearances at the final editions of "Transmission", a popular music event that was held in Sydney & Brisbane.
2010 reflected Headhunterz and Hardstyle's growing popularity around the world, in his own words 2010 was "a year where my international bookings overtook my national ones." At the beginning of 2010, Headhunterz was offered the chance to host his own X-Qlusive. Held on the 30th of January at the Heineken Music Hall, Amsterdam, X-Qlusive:Headhunterz featured Wildstylez, The Prophet, Noisecontrollers & Brennan Heart joining Headhunterz on the main stage. Headhunterz described X-Qlusive as the highlight of 2010 as "It was an amazing night - a milestone in my career and personal life. I could have never imagined getting so far." In the buildup to X-Qlusive, Headhunterz revealed he was planning the release of his second studio album, Studio Sessions. Released on the 8th of March, Studio Sessions was a 15 track album containing a mixture of new unreleased tracks, collaborations, edits of older Headhunterz tracks and remixes done by Headhunterz and others. The Album release was followed by a world tour visiting The United States, Australia, Russia, Canada and many performances across the Netherlands. For the second year in a row, Headhunterz was asked to make a Defqon.1 Anthem, this time for the Australian edition, "Save Your Scrap for Victory". Along with the anthem, Headhunterz' other releases in 2010 was the "psychedelic" EP, which featured the popular title track along with "Dreamcatcher" and "Emptiness" and an EP with Noisecontrollers. 2010 also saw Headhunterz make his first appearance in DJ Mag's yearly top 100 DJ list, coming in at 36th, the highest Hardstyle DJ in the list. It was the first year Hardstyle artists were featured on the top 100 with Noisecontrollers, D-Block & S-te-Fan and Showtek all ranking in the top 100 alongside Headhunterz.
At the beginning of 2011 Headhunterz was recognized for his achievements in the past year at the 8th annual Hard Dance Awards, claiming best European hard dance DJ, best international DJ and best track, "Psychedelic". Speaking on social media he stated "Thanks so much for all the nice congrats. I can't describe how good it feels to get so much recognition for my work. Respect to all of you!". 2011 saw the start of the monthly podcast, HARDwithSTYLE. First released on the 27th of May 2011 through iTunes, Soundcloud and YouTube, the hour-long podcast was promoted with the tagline "Bringing you the music that comes from within!" and was aimed at showcasing Headhunterz's favorite tracks of the month, from both established and up and coming producers. With many unheard and new tracks getting their first broadcast on HARDwithSTYLE, the podcast quickly become one of the most popular electronic music podcasts. Headhunterz again was ranked in DJ Mags yearly top 100 DJs list, coming in at 17th, the highest of any Hardstyle DJ and confirming his place as one of the most sought after Hardstyle DJs. 2011 had significantly less releases from Headhunterz compared to past years mainly due to a large amount of time and effort being put into what would become his 3rd studio album which was planned for a release in 2012. Nevertheless, Headhunterz had his last solo release on Scantraxx Reloaded, with the EP "From Within / The Message is Hardstyle". "The Message Is Hardstyle" had a mixed reception, many disliking the track due its soft kicks and perceived ironic lyrics given the nature of the song. The track "Make it Loud (Headhunterz Remix)" popular for its reverse bass intro, also finally gained a release on Blutonium Records. Headhunterz also had many notable performances in 2011, performing at Decibel, The Qontinent, Defqon.1, X-Qlusive: D-Block & S-te-Fan & Thrillogy. Headhunterz also had a major tour of the USA and Mexico visiting 18 cities along the way and also performed at the first Mysteryland to be held outside of the Netherlands, in Chile.
2012-2015: Sacrifice & Ultra Records
In 2012 Headhunterz released his 3rd studio album Sacrifice on the 15th of March. The 10 track album was the culmination of work done in 2011 and Headhunterz donated all profits to Dance4Life, an international initiative that mobilises and unite young people (13–19 years old) to push back the spread of HIV/AIDS. The album was a collection of new tracks, edits and collaborations. Amongst the track list were standouts, "Dragonborn", a previous freely released track inspired by the game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim featuring the popular "Fus. Ro. Dah" sample. "Doomed", a track that was produced in response to the significant criticism of his musical direction and track "The Message is Hardstyle", feature lyrics that make light of the many 'haters' that feature on an artist's webblog. Other highlights were the early hardstyle inspired, "Back In the Days", the 2012 Hardbass Anthem, "Eternalize" and a collaboration with Psyko Punkz, "Disrespect".
Along with Sacrifice, Headhunterz recorded and released a number of remixes for popular House artists stating, "Doing remixes for other genres makes so much more sense than remixing stuff in your own genre...it gave me a whole different approach in producing hardstyle and I hope the same fans will benefit from that." He had his first song release on Ultra Music with one such remix, "Lessons in Love" by Kaskade. He remixed the Hardwell song, "Spaceman" which saw a release on Hardwell's Revealed Recordings. Two remixes for German House producer, Zedd, "Spectrum" was released for free through Headhunterz's social media and "Clarity (Feat. Foxes)" was released on the Clarity Remixes EP released through Interscope Records. Lastly he remixed Nicky Romero's popular 2011 track "Toulouse". All these remixes proved to be incredibly popular and increased his exposure outside of Hardstyle, being played by many House DJs in their sets.
Headhunterz, in collaboration with Wildstylez and Noisecontrollers, produced the 2012 Defqon.1 Anthem for the Dutch edition of the popular festival. "World of Madness" was released on the 16th of August with the intro of the song featuring elements of the three previous Defqon.1 Anthems that the three had produced consecutively, "Scrap Attack" in 2009 by Headhunterz, "No Time To Waste" in 2010 by Wildstylez and "Unite" in 2011 by Noisecontrollers.
Headhunterz again climbed up the ranking in DJ Mags top 100 DJ list, coming in at 11th reflecting the further influence hardstyle was having within the dance music scene. In October 2012 Headhunterz hosted and performed at another Q-Dance showcase event Q-Dance presents: Headhunterz - HARDwithSTYLE. Held at the newly opened Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, the event was a sellout featuring artists such as Code Black, Adrenalize, Isaac, Ran-D and Adaro who all had featured prominently on the HARDwithSTYLE podcast since its beginning. Along with this Headhunterz performed at both the Australian and Netherlands editions of Defqon.1, both editions of Mysteryland, The Qontinent, Tomorrowland, Electric Daisy Carnival, Q-Dance Presents: Scantraxx 10 Years, Reverse & X-Qlusive: Noisecontrollers.
In February 2013, Headhunterz signed with major dance music label Ultra Music. The signing was a landmark in Hardstyle reflecting the growth of the genre both inside the Netherlands and internationally, growth of which Headhunterz had been at the forefront of. Speaking on his signing, Headhunterz stated:
The deal with Ultra Music is a turning point in my career as an artist and producer. Having complete creative control in every aspect of what I do as Headhunterz will no doubt allow me the space and creativity to be true to hardstyle whilst being able to spread my music on an even larger scale backed by their resources, I am thrilled to get started on this exciting new adventure.
On August 30, Headhunterz had his first official solo release on Ultra Music with his track, "Colors (Feat. TaTu)". It entered the Dutch iTunes Top 100 at number 5 and number 2 under the "dance" category. A remix of "Colors" by trap group Yellow Claw followed, also released on Ultra Music. In November he had his second release, the collaboration with fellow label artist, Krewella for their track "United Kids of the World". The track was launched in November by Ultra Music in partnership with DoSomething.org, a non-profit organization with the goal of motivating young people to take action around social changes, with a campaign focusing on the problems of cyber bullying.
Along with his signing to Ultra Music, Headhunterz launched his own record label HARDwithSTYLE Records. Not connected to Ultra, the label focuses on promoting the harder styles of dance music from both established artists and new, fresh talent. The label aims to be as non-restrictive as possible, "Different from the standards in our scene thus far, we are not being restrictive with the artists who give the label music. We want to sign singles, no options, no commitments other than artists giving us great music we love and we push, no agenda, no nonsense, no bullshit. Just music. For artists which have contracts with other record labels, no problem, if your label will give you a 'pass' then we would love to have a record from you." The first release on HARDwithSTYLE was The Leaked EP by Headhunterz, featuring tracks "Reignite", with vocals from Malukah and "The Power of Music", a track which Headhunterz rates as one of his best and most complete tracks of his career.
Headhunterz first release for 2014, "Breakout", is his first collaboration with Australian Hardstyle artist, Audiofreq and was released in March. In the Spring of 2014, Rebergen announced he was working with Breda Duo, W&W. Rebergen then released 'Shocker' a 132 BPM track with Hardstyle kicks and synths and choppy vocals faced with W&W's image of house. When W&W performed at Tomorrowland they brought Headhunterz as a guest and they played Shocker and premiered another song. The other song was released in November 2014 and the title was called 'We Control the Sound.' The message in We Control the Sound states "There is nothing wrong with your sound system. Do Not Attempt to adjust the Volume." In late December, The Worlds #1 DJ Hardwell announced he would be working on a track with Rebergen for his album United We Are the track was called 'Nothing Can Hold Us Down.' The track also featured Dutch Vocalist, Haris and the track ended with Hardstyle Kicks and a 138 BPM variation on the drop. Rebergen announced he was also working with Rotterdam Deep House artist, Oliver Heldens. Rebergen is currently in the studio with Dyro which fans name their track 'Cyborg'. Beside this he premiered a new solo track on Slam FM radio show Bij Igmar.
Despite the negative response of his fanbase, Rebergen commits to his creative freedom and heads for a new direction. In September, the Origins project kicks off on his HARDwithSTYLE label, a collection of 8 years worth of Headhunterz classics. To Willem, the re-release of his old tracks is his way of honouring his past in the hard dance and hardstyle scene.
2015: Creative Freedom
Early 2015, Headhunterz goes on a 6-week North-America tour, as part of Steve Aoki's Neon Future Experience Tour. 'Once Again', Headhunterz' solo track, gets released on Hardwell's Revealed Recordings and the Headhunterz remix of Armin van Buuren ft. Mr. Probz - Another You is released on Armada Music. At Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Steve Aoki invites Headhunterz on stage to premiere their collaboration, yet to be released. Headhunterz' collab with Crystal Lake, 'Live Your Life', is released on Spinnin Records in May and reaches #3 in Beatport's overall charts.
In interviews, Headhunterz says that his changes in style have to do with him claiming his creative freedom.
It was time for a change, to go back to experimenting and rediscovering my own, artistic boundaries. I was doing the same thing in hardstyle for more than 8 years and I needed a fresh breath of air. Not being limited to whatever style has given me lots of inspiration.

Get Above & Beyond songs and albums from:
Above & Beyond is an English progressive trance group consisting of members Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness, and Paavo Siljamäki. Formed in 2000, they are the owners of London-based electronic dance music labels Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep, and also host a weekly radio show titled Group Therapy Radio. The trio has been consistently ranked among DJ Magazine's Top 100 DJs Poll, having placed at #4 in 2008 & 2009, #5 in 2010 & 2011, and most recently at #29 for 2015.
Grant and Siljamäki met at the University of Westminster. Having discovered a common mutual interest for electronic music, they decided to collaborate in writing music together. Following Siljamäki's suggestion, they set up the Anjunabeats label in the summer of 1999 with the release of their first single, "Volume One," under the alias Anjunabeats. Initially, the Anjunabeats record label was founded as a medium to release their own music. Since the label acquired the same name as their production alias, however, they started to release music under different names, most notably as "Dirt Devils" and "Free State."
The original mix of "Volume One," packaged with their "Tease Dub Mix," received immediate attention in various dance clubs and quickly gained support from DJs such as Pete Tong, Paul Oakenfold, Judge Jules, and Paul van Dyk, after Grant and Paavo Siljamäki personally handed a dub plate of the song to Paul Oakenfold in 2000 at the now-defunct London nightclub, "Home".
Following the success of "Volume One" and a string of singles and remixes under their Free State and Dirt Devils alter egos, the Marketing Director & Manager of the Warner Music Group, Tony McGuinness, was alerted to the duo by his brother, Liam McGuinness. Liam had purchased a sample library that Grant had created for Yamaha, and got in touch with Jono. Having been commissioned to remix Chakra's "Home," Tony McGuinness recruited Grant and Siljamäki to help him complete the remix. When the group was searching for a name to use for their Chakra remix, the inspiration came from a web page belonging to an American motivational trainer coincidentally named Jono Grant. Grant had the poster stuck to his wall. The slogan used by the motivational trainer was "Above & Beyond," and they decided to use that as their name. Although the group was relatively unknown at the time, their remix of Chakra's "Home" was picked over remixes by Rob Searle and Tilt to be the A-side mix, and after plays by Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1, it reached number one in the UK club charts.
In addition to Above & Beyond's production work, the trio also established the vocal trance group OceanLab with Justine Suissa.
Other collaborators in the band's early stages include Andy Moor and vocalists Carrie Skipper, Ashley Tomberlin, Zoë Johnston, and Richard Bedford.
Early productions and DJ career debut (2001–2005)
Interest in Above & Beyond soon emerged from established trance labels and new remixes were requested: the trio remixed Aurora's "Ordinary World," Fragma's "Everytime You Need Me," Perpetuous Dreamer's "The Sound of Goodbye," and Adamski's "In the City." These tracks served as the foundation for Above & Beyond's reputation as one of the UK's leading vocal trance remixers.
In 2001, Above & Beyond produced a club mix for the Madonna single "What It Feels Like for a Girl", and also remixed select tracks by Delerium, Three Drives, and J-pop artist Ayumi Hamasaki.
In 2002, Above & Beyond made their DJ debut in Tokyo performing for 8,000 clubbers alongside Ferry Corsten and Tiësto. As their fan base increased, the trio began to make regular appearances at some of the world's largest music festivals and clubs, including Rockness, Glastonbury and Creamfields in the UK and Amnesia in Ibiza, Spain.
In 2003, Above & Beyond remixed Tomcraft's "Loneliness," Motorcycle's "As the Rush Comes," as well as being asked back by Madonna to remix "Nobody Knows Me." Other remixes included Britney Spears' single "Everytime," Dido's "Sand In My Shoes," and Delerium's "Silence."
Above & Beyond's single "No One On Earth," featuring the vocals of Zoë Johnston, soon followed. It was voted Tune of the Year for 2004 in Armin van Buuren's trance radio show A State of Trance.
Tri-State era (2006–2009)
In 2006, Above & Beyond released their debut artist album, Tri-State. UK-based DJ Magazine gave the album a five-star review, saying, "A blend of sleek electronic rhythms, lush filmic textures and old-fashioned song writing. Tri-State is the fulfillment of any dance act's ultimate album aspiration: a padding-free, skilled, diverse long-player. In a word, 'Brilliant.'"
Singles from the album include "Air for Life," with Andy Moor, which won "Best Underground Dance Track" at the 2006 Miami Winter Music Conference and was named Tune of the Year for 2005, as voted by the listeners of Armin van Buuren's radio show A State of Trance. "Alone Tonight," featuring Richard Bedford, was nominated for best progressive house/trance track at the 22nd International Dance Music Awards held at the 2007 Miami WMC, reaching #4 in the Finland National Singles chart and #5 in the UK Dance Chart. Above & Beyond performed "Alone Tonight" at Global Gathering 2005 broadcast live on Radio One in the UK. Their single "Can't Sleep" was included on A State of Trance in episode 280, which featured at #3 on the best 20 tracks of 2006, according to the fans that voted in its polls. "Good for Me," featuring Zoë Johnston, was also voted Tune of the Year in 2006 on Van Buuren's A State of Trance. In 2008, Above & Beyond won "Best Underground Dance Track" at IDMA Awards at the Winter Music Conference with their single "Home."
On 31 December 2007, Above & Beyond unofficially hosted their largest show ever on Barra Beach, Rio de Janeiro, where they reportedly played to an estimated one million people.
In 2009, Above & Beyond performed at the official launch of Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo. The event took place in the Mojave Desert and was hosted by Sir Richard Branson and attended by Arnold Schwarzenegger. The performance was secured after Above & Beyond's Buzz Aldrin-sampling club track "Buzz" was picked by Virgin to soundtrack the unveiling of the spaceship itself.
Group Therapy era (2010–2014)
The first single to be heard from Above & Beyond's second artist album, Group Therapy was "Thing Called Love" feating vocals from Richard Bedford and is featured in the Anjunabeats Volume 8 compilation album released on 19 July 2010. After months of writing, refining, and perfecting, Above & Beyond's hugely anticipated second artist album "Group Therapy" was released to widespread critical acclaim on 6 June 2011. Hitting #1 in the iTunes Dance Album charts, the album was also hugely well received by the dance music press. DJ Magazine put the three members of Above & Beyond on the cover of their May issue, describing them as the "biggest DJ/production collective the UK has ever produced." Mixmag hailed the album as "Artist Album of the Year." The album contains downtempo moments, such as the classical piano-influenced opening track "Filmic" and the reflective "Only a Few Things," featuring Zoë Johnston, as well as the more uptempo club tracks such as "Sun & Moon," "Thing Called Love," and "Prelude." All songs are written and produced by Above & Beyond, with Richard Bedford providing the male voice throughout the album and Zoë Johnston providing the female vocals.
The first single, "Sun & Moon" featuring vocals from Richard Bedford, became a favourite of BBC Radio 1 personality Vernon Kay and ended up on the station's B-List, an achievement that was also followed by their second single, "Thing Called Love," which also featured Richard Bedford. Each single release from the album was accompanied by an "Above & Beyond Club Mix," which ordinarily takes the essence of the original song and reworks it for Above & Beyond's peak-time DJ sets, adding more traditional progressive trance and house music elements.
In 2012, Above & Beyond embarked on the Group Therapy World Tour, performing sold-out shows at select venues and clubs across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. The group also made their debut in Hawaii, performing at the Kaka'ako Waterfront Park in Honolulu. In August 2012, Above & Beyond graced the cover of Mixmag, and performed a live set at Mixmag Headquarters along with Mat Zo. The 2-hour set was subsequently released as an exclusive label showcase mix titled United Colours of Anjunabeats.
In 2013, Above & Beyond continued to headline and perform at several dance music festivals, including Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Electric Forest, Tomorrowland and Stereosonic. The group also performed their first-ever acoustic shows at Porchester Hall in London and The Greek Theater in Los Angeles, featuring Zoë Johnston, Alex Vargas and Annie Drury, among other special guests such as Skrillex. On 26 October 2013, Above & Beyond celebrated Episode 050 of Group Therapy Radio (their 500th radio show overall) at Alexandra Palace in London with a live 6 hour broadcast.
On 18 October 2014, Above & Beyond celebrated Episode 100 of Group Therapy Radio at Madison Square Garden in New York City with a live broadcast.

They narrowly missed arrest when, after inviting fans to come out and view the video, hundreds turned out in droves. Police on horseback were summoned to the location, as traffic was beginning to become blocked.
Acoustic and We Are All We Need (2014–present)
Following the acoustic shows in London and Los Angeles, Above & Beyond world premiered the concert film Live From Porchester Hall on 24 January 2014. The studio album, Acoustic, was released on 28 January 2014:
"The acoustic project is a reconnection with the musicians that we were before we met ... the songs have been on an interesting journey to get here because we tend to write in a fairly acoustic way anyway. We don't just stick a bit of vocal over a dance track - that's not how we work. We try to start with a song and it's usually only later down the line that we take certain elements from that song and progress them into a more dancefloor-friendly version."
A special edition of Acoustic was also released, containing a DVD of the concert film in London, a photographic journal, and signed commentary from all members of the band. A limited press double vinyl edition was released on 17 March 2014.
During their acoustic shows at Porchester Hall, Above & Beyond announced that their third artist album would be released sometime in 2014. Vocalists Alex Vargas and Justine Suissa have been confirmed as collaborators on new material.

There have been various special episodes of TATW, including live Above & Beyond sets from festivals and radio episodic milestones, such as Episode 400, which was celebrated in November 2011 in Beirut, Lebanon. Trance Around the World ended its nine-year broadcast in November 2012, celebrating Episode 450 in Bangalore, India.

Get Chase & Status songs and albums from:
Chase & Status are a British electronic music production duo composed of Saul Milton (Chase) and Will Kennard (Status). In addition, MC Rage & Andy Gangadeen also make up the live band. The duo are from London, and formed in 2003 after meeting at university in Manchester. The duo have since released three studio albums as well as collaborating with major artists such as Plan B, Cee Lo Green, Rihanna, Example and Tinie Tempah.
Saul Milton (Chase) and Will Kennard (Status) originally met in London through a mutual friend although met up again whilst university students in Manchester. Will studied History of Art at the University of Manchester, while Saul studied English and Humanities at Manchester Metropolitan University. Will decided to drop out of university to pursue a music career although Saul did manage to achieve an honours in his studies despite spending most of his time on music.
2006–2009: More Than Alot
Chase & Status had three number one singles on the UK Dance Chart between 2007 - 2009; the double A-side "Hurt You" / "Sell Me Your Soul" in 2007 and "Take Me Away" / "Judgement (Informer)" in 2008 were two of them. On 5 October 2008, they reached number seventy on the UK Singles Chart and number one on the UK Dance Chart again with their single "Pieces" featuring vocals from Plan B. In 2009, they peaked at number forty five with "Against All Odds", which featured UK rapper Kano.
2009–2011: No More Idols
In November 2009, the duo entered the top forty of the UK Singles Chart for the first time with the track "End Credits". The track was released on 2 November 2009 and featuring Plan B, it reached a peak of number nine on the UK Singles Chart.
The duo then released "Let You Go" on 15 August 2010, revealing it to be the second official single to be released from their second studio album No More Idols, according to posters outside their album launch show at HMV Forum in Kentish Town on 21 October. The single featured vocals from Mali and debuted at number eleven on the UK Singles Chart, marking the duo's second consecutive Top Forty hit. "Hypest Hype" (featuring Tempa T) was confirmed in October 2010 to be the third single from the album. Because it was released as a free download from their website on 8 November 2010, it did not qualify to chart. The fourth single from the album is "Blind Faith", which features soul singer/songwriter Liam Bailey and was released in January 2011. Other singles include "Time" (featuring Delilah), "Hitz" (featuring Tinie Tempah) and "Flashing Lights" (with Sub Focus featuring Takura). The album also contains the song "Heavy" with Dizzee Rascal. The album debuted at number two on the UK Albums Chart and was certified Gold in the first week of sales by the British Phonographic Industry.
2012–present: Brand New Machine
In contrast to More Than Alot and No More Idols, the new album has a darker sound. The duo performed as a sub-headline on Friday night at Download Festival 2012, provoking an outcry from regular Download enthusiasts (the festival is recognized as a rock/metal festival), not least due to them being higher on the bill than fan favourites Machine Head, who had been subject to an internet campaign to headline the festival. However, they were well received. Chase & Status have also headlined electronic music festival South West Four hosted on London's Clapham Common.
Chase & Status: Live at Brixton, a CD/DVD featuring appearances from Tinie Tempah, Liam Bailey, Mali & Delilah, was released on 2 April 2012.
On 15 October 2012, the track "Big Man" featuring Liam Bailey was released on the official Chase & Status website as a free download. The following day it was released through online retailers. The music video was also published on 15 October on their official YouTube channel and the 'UKFDrumandBass' channel.
On 8 March 2013, the duo were confirmed to headline Saturday night at Roskilde Festival following Metallica at Orange stage. On 11 March 2013, the duo were confirmed through their website to sub-headline Saturday night at Reading Festival and Sunday night at Leeds Festival 2013.
On 4 June 2013, the album's lead single "Lost & Not Found" featuring Louis M^ttrs was uploaded to the 'ChaseAndStatusVEVO' channel. The digital single was released on 26 June and includes remixes from MTA Records artists Dream Mclean, Kove and Josh Butler. On 17 June 2013, MTA Records announced that newly signed Elli Ingram will support them on tour and feature on the album.
On 26 July 2013, they announced the album title to be Brand New Machine. The album's second single "Count on Me" featuring Moko premiered on B.Traits' BBC Radio 1 show on the same day, and the official album artwork was released. "Count On Me" was released on 29 September. The album was released on 7 October.
On 24 August 2013, they performed on the Main Stage at Reading Festival before Eminem. During the performance, MC Rage had to stop the show due to people being crushed at the front of the crowd. The act was resumed, and finished successfully. They headlined 1Xtra Live in Bournemouth on 7 October, the same day as the album release, and returned to the BIC on their arena tour in November. The band played their first show in India during the popular multi-genre music festival, Bacardi NH7 Weekender on 20 October 2013.
Kennard became engaged to Sophie Hall on 15 February 2014, manager of the duo's label MTA Records and sister of Ben from Delta Heavy.
Remixes and productions
The duo have also created a remix version of "Invaders Must Die" for The Prodigy. In Australia, the remix reached fifty three on the Aria Singles Chart and number seven on the Aria Dance Chart. They have also produced for Rihanna numerous times, on her fourth album Rated R, sixth album Talk That Talk and seventh album "Unapologetic", as well as producing British-Kosovan singer Rita Ora's No.1 hit, R.I.P and co-producing a track on Alexandra Burke's album Overcome. Other remixes include Black Canvas' "Broken Dreams", Dizzee Rascal's "Sirens", Nneka's "Heartbeat" and Capleton's "Who Dem" (renamed "Duppy Man"). Chase & Status also produced a track for singer Example for his second album Won't Go Quietly ("Sick Note") and again for his third album Playing in the Shadows ("Playing in the Shadows"). They also produced Example's unreleased track "Pink Notes" that features on his mixtape The Credit Munch Redux.

Get Bassjackers songs and albums from:
Bassjackers aka Marlon Flohr and Ralph van Hilst had not foreseen what was coming when they started out with their collaboration. Marlon was already Dj-ing for a while and Ralph experimented a lot with making different kinds of dance music. Marlon was mainly playing house music at the time and then the idea came to push Ralphs productions in that direction so that Marlon could play the tracks in his sets. The first track they were both satisfied with was "Beat Cut".
"Beat Cut" got picked up by Fedde le Grand and kickstarted their career. What followed was a solid stream of tracks and remixes which were supported by all the top jocks and scored big on the international dance charts, like for example their remix for Dada Life which scored #1 on hypem.com (the international hype machine). The success in the studio was also taken to the clubs and with a packed schedule of 250 gigs a year Bassjackers were definitely established in the dance scene.
Their BIG break came in 2011, their dancefloor bomb "Mush Mush" got picked up by Tiesto and got released on Tiesto's imprint "Musical Freedom". It dominated the Beatport top 10 for over 2 months and grew to be one of the biggest club/festival tracks of 2011. It's that track that every DJ can play to destroy the dance floor, and so they did. Just to namedrop; Tiesto, Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Afrojack, Sander van Doorn, Martin Solveig, Calvin Harris, Benny Benassi, Judge Jules, the list of support is endless..!!

Get Faithless songs and albums from:
Faithless are a British electronica band consisting of Maxi Jazz, Sister Bliss and Rollo. The group is best known for their dance songs ("Salva Mea", "Insomnia", "God Is a DJ" and "We Come 1"). Faithless recorded six studio albums, with total sales exceeding 15 million records worldwide. The band announced it would split up after their Passing The Baton dates at Brixton Academy on 7 and 8 April 2011. However, in February 2015 they reunited to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band.
The band was formed in early 1995, and their debut single "Salva Mea (Save Me)" was released in July that year. Jazz acted as a vocalist, whilst Bliss constructed most of the music herself electronically, but also played the piano, violin, saxophone and bass guitar. Rollo heads and produces the band. Lead female vocals for many of their songs are performed by Pauline Taylor, who also performed lead vocals for singles by Rollo released under his monikers Rollo Goes Mystic and Rollo Goes Spiritual.
The albums are Reverence (which reached number 26), Sunday 8PM (reaching number 10), Outrospective (at number 4) and No Roots (which debuted at number 1); they were released between 1996 and 2004, with a greatest hits compilation album out in 2005. In light of their dance roots, each of the four studio albums has been followed with a subsequent bonus disc of remixes. Their fifth album, To All New Arrivals, was released in 2006. Their sixth and final album, The Dance, was released on 16 May 2010, after a four-year recording break for the band.
The band also collectively indulge in mixtapes of other musicians' work, either mixed by the group or merely selected by them. This includes the long running Back to Mine sessions as well as The Bedroom Sessions and more recently the Renaissance 3D music project, in conjunction with the Renaissance nightclub.
On 29 September 2006, the first single "Bombs" from their album To All New Arrivals made its debut on BBC Radio 1's Pete Tong show. The album was released on 27 November 2006. "Bombs" generated moderate controversy with its music video, as demonstrated by MTV's refusal to air it. The video featured interchanged clips of war scenes and daily life.
In October 2007 they played alongside Talib Kweli and Ozomatli and one of China's earliest music festivals, Yue, organised by Split Works.
Final studio album and retirement announcement:
On 7 August 2009, a dub mix of the track "Sun to Me" from their latest studio album, The Dance, made its debut on BBC Radio 1's Pete Tong show. "Sun to Me" has been given as a free download to all users that have registered on the new Faithless site, or subscribed to their newsletter. The track has been released on the band's Myspace page as well. On 12 February 2010, the first official single from the next Faithless album was played on Pete Tong's show. The single, "Not Going Home", was released on 4 May 2010, whilst the latest album The Dance, was issued on 16 May 2010. The album was available only in Tesco (3 month exclusive contract) and via iTunes in the UK. Since 2009, their track "Drifting Away" has been the theme tune for the BBC Television's Chelsea Flower Show coverage.
In 2010, they returned to the Glastonbury Festival after eight years, playing on the Pyramid Stage. They performed many of their most popular songs including "Insomnia", "God is a DJ", and "We Come 1".
On 16 March 2011, Maxi Jazz announced on his website that Faithless would cease to be, commenting "But, like when writing a song, you always just know when it's finished... this is and was the Thank YOU And Goodbye tour."
They played two nights at Brixton Academy on 7 and 8 April 2011. The latter date would allegedly be the final full Faithless touring band show and was transmitted live via satellite to cinemas across Europe.
Stripped-down later activity:
The Faithless 'Sound System' (consisting of Maxi Jazz, Sister Bliss and percussionist Sudha Kheterpal) performed shows on 22 July 2011 at the Tomorrowland festival in Belgium, at the Waterford Music Fest in Ireland on 30 July and in Split (Croatia) at the Riva Discothèque on 12 August.
As well as their own studio albums, all three members actively engage in other people's work as solo figures. Sister Bliss is a prominent dance DJ and has for a long time toured the circuit on her own, remixed others' albums and even appeared in music videos, such as Paul Oakenfold's "Weekend". Maxi Jazz brought out an album before the formation of Faithless and also worked on pirate radio. He also collaborated with Faithless founding member Jamie Catto on his new project 1 Giant Leap guesting on a song with Robbie Williams. Finally, Rollo founded the label Cheeky Records and has produced the music of other artists, most notably his sister Dido's albums, as well as using various monikers to create popular dance music under the names Rollo Goes ...

Get MK songs and albums from:
Some may know Marc Kinchen as an icon of the dance world, some may know him only by his initials, "MK", and then there are others who only know his music. This has been MK's experience ever since his breakthrough remix of the international classic hit, 'Push The Feeling On' by The Nightcrawlers was released. However, in the past 18 months we have heard his smash remixes of Lana Del Rey and Chris Malinchak, as well as his solo projects on Hot Creations and Defected. MK has long been responsible for taking ordinary pop records, and turning them into dance classics. This was evident when his third version of Storm Queen's 'Look Right Through' hit Number One in the UK charts this past November. To date, his version of the single has reached 400,000 in sales in the UK.
It's obvious even to a newcomer or neophyte enthusiast that Marc Kinchen's talents go beyond that of just a classic house or dance remixer. He is an artist, producer, DJ, songwriter and an internationally respected name in the worlds of R&B and pop as well as Dance. MK has long pushed the boundaries of musical genres in ways that have earned him a stellar reputation across the board. As a teenager growing up in Detroit, MK was lucky enough to be befriended by one of the true Techno originators, Kevin Saunderson. Kevin became a mentor and big brother, giving Marc the keys to his already infamous, Detroit KMS Studios.
During those early years, MK chose to follow the path of Producer/Artist over that of a DJ. Staying behind the scenes in the studio enabled him to hone his craft. At the same time that Marc was working his magic at the mixing desk, there was a completely different story being told out in the clubs and dance charts as his music gained notoriety all over the World. One after the other, his productions and remixes were going top ten, top five and Number One over and over. We fast-forward to the present after a self-imposed break, MK has returned with some fantastic mixes and productions. Once again, he has proven himself to be consistent and yet surprising, with a whole new series of songs that showcase his uncanny ability to reinvent and rework an existing track.
Over the last eighteen months, MK has become one of the elite in the Shazam charts. He has remixed Lana Del Rey's 'Summertime Sadness' and 'Blue Jeans', Sky Ferreira's 'Everything Is Embarrassing', Storm Queen's 'Look Right Through', Dillon's 'Thirteen Thirtyfive', Chris Malinchak's 'So Good To Me', Sinead Harnett's 'Got Me', Hot Natured's 'Forward Motion', Le Youth's 'Dance With Me', FCL, 'It's You', Wankelmut Ft Emma Louise 'My Head Is A Jungle," Shadow Child's 'Friday', Sam Smith's 'Money On My Mind', Kant's 'Ey Yo', Inner City and Duke Dumont's upcoming single 'I Got You'. Future projects include his new group Pleasure State, with Anabel Englund and Lee Foss, writing and working with Shadow Child, Duke Dumont and Route 94, and his own solo MK album. He is also re-launching his label, Area 10 and working on upcoming remixes for Paloma Faith and Pharrell, Angel Haze and Sia, Rudimental, new group Monarchy, and London Grammar's next single, 'Hey Now', as well as Haim's, 'Days'.
MK's return to the scene as a DJ has him travelling the world at near record pace. Over the last year, he has been in Ibiza, Germany, London, all over the UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Denmark, Holland, Norway, Italy, Croatia, Belgium, Mexico, Chicago, LA, Denver, SF, Boston and even Russia.
"Sometimes we do three cities in one night and that can be wild. It is very different from the solitary existence the studio lends itself to, but I like them both," says MK. "There is really nothing more exhilarating than hearing and seeing the crowd react to a record you have produced, it is so instant, so much warmth and good energy, I am really having a ball". 2014 will even see MK tour Australia for the first time.
A lot has changed for MK since he produced his first record, the now legendary 'Burning' for his own label, Area 10. That record quickly led to him to NYC and a deal from Virgin Records. During those years, MK was putting out songs like 'Burning', 'For You' (4th Measure Men), 'Do It Right, Feel The Fire', 'Love Changes' and 'Always'. Most of these songs still fill the dance floors today, as do his 200 plus remixes for artists ranging from Bizarre Inc, Blondie, Pitbull, JLo, Janet Jackson, Moby, Luther Vandross, Brandy, Pet Shop Boys, Enrique, Masters At Work, Dev, Happyhead, and Jodeci. It would also be impossible to forget the numerous remixes of his iconic versions of 'Push The Feeling On' (Nightcrawlers), which is still one the biggest crossover house hits and has been re-released five times. Even Pitbull used MK's version of 'Push the Feeling On' for his international hit single, 'Hotel Room'. MK has long been cited as an influence by leading producers/DJs, including Todd Edwards, Maceo Plex, Dubfire, Danny Daze, Laidback Luke, Afrojack, Todd Terry, Duke Dumont, Lee Foss and countless others.
In 2012, MK was honored to have his own House Master CD. It was quickly followed by the popular compilation 'MK IN THE HOUSE' in 2013, also on Defected. The release was a double CD featuring current MK favorites and remixes, along with a second installment of his House Master CD. 2013 also marked MK's entry into Pete Tong's Hall Of Fame. 2014 is promising to be a wild ride with new music, adventures and fantastic live shows.

Matthias Paul, better known by his stage name Paul van Dyk (born 16 December 1971) is a German Grammy Award-winning Electronic Dance Music DJ, musician and record producer. One of the first true Superstar DJs, Paul van Dyk was one of the first artists to receive a Grammy nomination in the newly added category of Best Dance/Electronic album for his 2004 release Reflections. He was named the World's No. 1 DJ in both 2005 and 2006, something less than a handful of DJs have ever achieved. Paul van Dyk is the only DJ to hold a spot in the World's Top 10 DJs since 1998. He is also the first DJ to be named No. 1 by Mixmag in 2005. As of 2007, he has sold over 4.5 million albums worldwide.
A trance producer starting in the early 1990s, Paul quickly achieved popularity with his remix of "Love Stimulation" by Humate under the record label MFS in 1993, and with his hit single, "For an Angel", but in recent times he no longer likes to describe his music as trance, but rather simply as electronic dance music.

If 2011 was the year Dusky marked themselves out as accomplished electronic musicians with their critically acclaimed "Stick By This" LP, then 2012 was the year that Dusky took over the dancefloor and cemented their position at the forefront of the house music underground.
Signed by the label that broke Maya Jane Coles (Dogmatik), the devastating deep grooves of "Flo Jam" were hammered by everyone from Jamie Jones, Sasha and Pete Tong to Disclosure, Joy Orbison and Boddika and even commercial acts like Calvin Harris; earning itself the unexpected title of iTunes Dance Single Of The Year.
At the same time, darker excursions into warehouse techno like "Calling Me" and "Muriel" on Loefah's new School imprint have been hammered by names as diverse as Paul Woolford, Diplo, Skream, Seth Troxler and Agoria. As remixers, Dusky have asserted themselves as one of the most on-point reworkers in the game with a Pete Tong and Annie Mac endorsed mix of Hot Chip's "Night & Day", Cloud 9's '93 house classic "Do You Want Me Baby" and their ubiquitous rework of Justin Martin's "Don't Go".
The eclectic, well honed outlook is the result of absorbing two decades of global dance music, digging back beyond and a shared production career that has spanned nearly 10 years and seem them produce everything from classic progressive to liquid drum & bass together under various guises. Sift through Nick and Alfie's personal record collections and you will find everything from Polish orchestral music and Ahmad Jamal's soulful jazz, to Justin Martin's "Sad Piano" and Daft Punk's formative French house, with stacks of vintage garage and drum & bass 12"s propping the whole mix up.
Naturally shifting through the full spectrum of house and techno – with strains of their formative garage and d&b influence, Dusky's diverse take on the modern dancefloor was summed up best by their shortlisted contribution to BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix – which joined the dots between jungle legends PFM, the vintage techno of Reese Project and the classic garage of MJ Cole by way of modern innovators such as Huxley, Joy Orbison and Omar S.
With releases on Will Saul's Aus and Breach's Naked Naked getting heavy support on Radio 1, Dusky's 2013 is set to be their biggest yet.

Get Ferry Corsten songs and albums from:
Producer. DJ. Pioneer. Innovator. Visionary. He's the man that singlehandedly initiated a revolution in a dance musicgenre -one that's long since touched everycorner of the globe. Having designed the Dutch trance sound, he propelled it into the clubbing consciousness and on further still into popular culture. From there he continues to innovate at every turn, working with vocalists as diverse as SimonLe Bon and Guru and has remixed music from some of the planet's most enduring artists - U2, The Killers, Faithless, Moby and William Orbit among them. For 20 years he's foreseen what club citizens want to dance to and as an artisan DJ/producer, delivered it. He's released three artist albums under his own name (with a fourth 'WKND' scheduled for February 2012)and in doing so has captured the hearts and minds of legions of fans and scooped some of the world's most prestigious music prizes along the way. He's regularly ranked as one of the top 10DJs in the world, and of late has turned to charitable activities, working with the World Wildlife Fund.Yet through all this he's still one of the most down-to-earth, two-feet-on-the-floor DJs you'll find. He's Ferry Corsten.
How It All Began: Corsten started his career performing self-composed music live in his native country Holland. His first studio music arrived in 1991 when he produced the embryonic rave track 'Spirit of Adventure'. In 1995, under the name Hole In One and aged just 21 years old, he won the prestigious De Grote Prijs van Nederland award, which recognized his outstanding contribution to Holland's electronic dance music scene.
Reinventing Trance: In the early 90s Ferry's head was turned by the music streaming in from Germany. By 1996, with original trancesound beginning to contract, he set about creating a new, more accessible and ebullient principle for it. With a strong reception to his early tracks(Moonman's 'Don't Be Afraid' and Discodroids 'Interspace' among them), he launched Tsunami Records in '97 and a year later, under the alias System F, split the genre's atom. A veritable EDM milestone, 'Out Of The Blue' formed spear tip of Corsten's trance sound - one that was quickly galvanized by co-productions like Gouryella's 'Gouryella'(with Tiësto) and Veracocha's 'Carte Blanche'. Within 6 short months The Dutch Trance Sound(as it had become known) had seized control of Europe's dancefloors and national charts. Ferry'sremix of William Orbit's 'Barber's Adagio For Strings' became a top 5 in the UK, where his achievements were reflected by Muzik Magazine who named him as Producer of the Year at their 1999 Ericsson Muzik awards.
Superstar Producer Becomes SuperstarDJ: Demand to see the man behind the music had quickly placed Corsten behind turntables. He fast established a reputation for impassioned floor-igniting sets, which engaged and delighted an ever-expanding group of fans. From smashing the earliest trance scene events (inc. Innercity,Trance Energy and Dance Valley), there's now not a metropolis on Earth that Corsten's not rocked and re-rocked. He entered DJ Magazine's Top 100 poll in the first year of voting and, as of 2011 has enjoyed an incredible unbroken 12-year run in the chart.He won Best Trance DJ at both the 2005 and 2007 Ibiza Awards and in the same year was named DJ of the Year by Dutch national radio station Slam!FM.
Right Of Way to L.E.F. In 2002, with the euphoric sound he'd engineered continuing to hold sway over dance airwaves, Corsten refused to play safe. Having changed the face of trance once,he ripped up his own rulebook and set out to do it again. Evolving it at speed, 2002 saw the release of 'Punk' and the following year 'Rock Your Body, Rock' (tracks which for the first time spliced an electro gene intotrance). Both exploded, with the latter hitting #11 in the UK national chart and were featured on his 2004 debutalbum, 'Right Of Way'. That was followed by 'L.E.F.' in 2006 and (delivering on its 'Loud Electronic Ferocious' mandate) it saw Ferry begin to integrate some of his own earliest musical influences back into his music. Released on his new Flashover label, Corsten drafted 80s legends like Simon Le Bon, Howard Jones and Gangstarr founder, Guru into collaborate on the album, balancing them with trancier material like 'Galaxia' and floor-smash 'Beautiful'.
Corsten's Countdown: Midway through 2007 Ferry launched Corsten's Countdown, his radio show platform. Each week, for the last five years, listeners have ranked the 10 tracks Ferry plays via the show's website and his Facebook Fan Page. This in turn has created the most interactive radio show in the world, with its listeners determining a chart of the show's music. To celebrate its 150th episode Ferry introduced the world to the Cue Play App, a mobile digital DJ application, which was pre-loaded with tracks from his Flashover label. Corsten's Countdown is now aired in over 50 countries.
Flashover Recordings and Premier Recordings: In 2005, after 8 years at the helm, Ferry left Tsunami Recordings to launch a new label enterprise, Flashover Recordings. In addition to becoming his new musical base, it's fostered new talent, signing the likes of Rafaël Frost, Arty, Tritonal, Yuri Kane and many more to its roster. Its releases proved such a hit with fans that it quickly spun off the imprints Flashover Progressive, Flashover Tech, Levare Recordings, Flashover Chill Out and Flashback (which houses Ferry's complete backcatalogue and also includes previously unreleased material). Expanding his label portfolio further, he launched Premier, a joint-venture label with Black Hole Recordings in 2010. Established as a platform for crossover dance music, Premier has subsequently released music from artists including Betsie Larkin, Chris Lake, Robbie Rivera, Radio Killer and Kris Menace.
Full On Ferry: Embarking ona new show concept In October of 2007, Full On Ferry saw him lynchpin the arena-sized events, handpicking other DJs for unique back-to-back sets. Notably, at the first two events, Ferry wowed the audience in his home city of Rotterdam by DJing whilst suspended above the crowd in a 'floating' booth. Full On Ferry: Ibiza saw him embark on a season-long White Isle takeover at the newly opened Sankeys club in 2011. The end of that year saw him bring the show to Brixton's O2 Academy in London on New Years Eve for the first UK edition of the event. Various Full on Ferry events have already been scheduled for 2012.
Once Upon A Night / Twice In A Blue Moon: Ferry's 3rd album under his own name was heralded by the single 'Radio Crash' and was unveiled to fans at 2008's Full On Ferry event at the Ahoy in Rotterdam. 'Twice In A Blue Moon' carried the club hits 'We Belong', the Betsie Larkin-sung 'Made of Love' and in typical fashion more experimental material like the techno-edged 'Brain Box'. It was released in the same year as Corsten's first child was born and the title (and certain tracks, including 'Gabriella's Sky') were inspired by events in Ferry's life at the time. T.I.A.B.M.went on to spawn a major 40-date world release tour and the following year a remix edition and the 'Backstage' DVD.
It was whilst being interviewed for the 'Backstage' that Ferry announced plans for 'Once Upon A Night'. Having enjoyed a long mix-comphistory (one that's included 6 editions of the mega-selling Trance Nation series and his own Passport albums) Ferry entered a new mix era. Centred on material collated from his Flashover labeland exclusive to the 'Once Upon a Night' albums, in 2010 alone it spawned two volumes and a supporting world tour.
Aliases, In-Groups And Co-productions: Having now released tracks under more than 30 different artist names, Corsten has probably made greater use of aliases than any other producer working in the scene. Their impact has been felt far and wide, with some of his best known becoming next to synonymous with his own name. Chief among them have been System F, Moonman, Eon, Albion and Pulp Victim.
Co-producing on tracks like Gouryella's 'Gouryella' and Veracocha's 'Carte Blanche' he helped launch the careers of artists like Tiësto and Armin van Buuren. It is a studio dynamic he enjoys to this day... Having previously collaborated with artists as contrasting as Public Enemy and Simon Le Bon, he most recently re-teamed with Armin van Buuren (after System F's 'Exhale') for the 2011 club smash 'Brute'.
The Here-And-Now: Ferry marked 2 decades of working in electronic dance music in late 2011 with his 20 Years of Ferry Corsten mega-mix album. In releasing it in an App-only format, he became the first electronic dance artist to put out an album solely through this medium. Its multimedia release included 34 of his biggest hits, worked into the mix. On the singles front he released 'Check It Out', 'Minack', 'Brute' (co-produced with Armin) 'Feel It' and 'So Good' - the latter going out as a free-share track, as a 'thank you' in recognition of his fans loyalty. In October of 2011 Corsten joined forces with Olmeca Tequila, whose owners Pernod-Ricard launched a limited edition bottle, which Ferry himself designed. It was also the year that he became an ambassador for the Dutch World Wildlife Fund, where he has begun to leverage the exposure his events afford him to raise awareness for the Fund's activities.
Early 2012 will see the release of Ferry's fourth studio album 'WKND'. The album was prefaced in late 2011 by the launch of Ferry's new YouTube-based WKNDR webisodes, which take fans behind the scenes of his gigs and keeps them up to date with his production work.

At the end of 2004, Nilsen had made several unofficial remixes and a couple of own productions, that got the attention of the trance community. His tracks began to be played on radio stations and clubs all over the world, though nothing was signed by any label.
In 2006 Nilsen has released his first signed vinyl – "Arctic Globe / Prison Break" on Intuition Recordings. "Arctic Globe" was voted #1 on the Dutch Dance Charts at that time. Since then, he has released a handful of prime level tracks including La Guitarra, Lovers Lane, GO FAST! and others. Nilsen is currently taking gigs all over the world and his music career is developing rapidly, although the DJ Governor moniker is at rest.
In recent years, he has been impressing audiences across the trance community with his take on what a 21st-century DJ and producer should be.

Over the years Ørjan refined his style, creating tracks known as 'La Guitarra'(2008), 'Lovers Lane' and 'So Long Radio' (2010). Ørjan succeeded to release his first artist album in 2011 titled "In My Opinion" which stormed up sales charts and catapulted Ørjan onto the watch-list of every multiple EDM spotlights. Although "In My Opinion" was very successful, Ørjan showed no intention of slowing down, quickly releasing critically acclaimed tracks "Viking", "Atchoo" (2011) and opening 2012 in collaboration with Armin van Buuren and the aptly titled "Belter" followed by his own "Amsterdam" and "Endymion" before concluding out the year with "Copperfield" and "Filthy Fandango".

Get Hot Since 82 songs and albums from:
Daley Padley, also known as Hot Since 82 is a British DJ and house music producer currently based in Leeds, UK. He has been releasing music under the Hot Since 82 moniker since 2012. His music has been rapidly gaining in popularity, with Mixmag Magazine describing his progression in the house scene as "meteoric."
Padley grew up with three brothers and one sister, whose eclectic tastes in music he cites as inspiration for his diverse, difficult to categorise sound. His father refurbished old Volkswagen Beetles, often installing them with high-power sound systems, which Padley and his brother used to nurture their love for loud, bass-heavy music early on.
Padley entered the electronic music scene at a young age, beginning to frequent area nightclubs at the age of 14. His formal DJ education started at 17, playing 12–13-hour sets each Sunday at a club in his hometown (under his birth name). His residency soon became a top afterparty destination for clubbers in the area. As word got around, Padley's notoriety increased, resulting in a 2006 residency at Cream Ibiza in Amnesia under the banner of Leeds club Glasshouse.
Padley is a self-avowed romantic, and lover of romantic comedies.
Becoming Hot Since 82
In 2010, Padley was attending an Ibiza afterparty when the music suddenly cut out. He plugged his iPhone into the party's speakers, and incidentally, one of his works-in-progress came on. Though Padley had admittedly not made the track with the intent of releasing it, reactions at the party were roundly positive, causing him to contact his friend Danish DJ/Producer Noir, who runs the record label Noir Recordings. Noir was impressed, and released it on his label. 'Let It Ride' came out on Noir Music on 5 September 2011, hitting number three on Beatport's deep house chart. Thus, Hot Since 82 was born.
Rising out of relative obscurity, Padley has recently been featured in a variety of widely popular electronic music media. After a year of releasing his music, Padley was featured on Pete Tong's authoritative Essential Mix show on BBC Radio 1 in August 2013, playing a 2-hour exclusive set.
Soon after, Padley was commissioned for a remix of electronic music pioneer Green Velvet aka Curtis Jones' song 'Bigger than Prince.' The track was released in September 2013, and rose to the Number 1 position on Beatport's dance music charts.
He released his first full-length album, Little Black Book, in October 2013 on Moda Black Records, featuring collaborations with Joe T Vannelli and Thomas Gandey, as well as remixes of Rudimental and Shadow Child.
Padley launched his own imprint, Knee Deep in Sound, in 2014, on which he hopes to release music from up-and-coming artists with an underground "vinyl" sound.
Electronic music website Dancing Astronaut ranked Hot Since 82 at No. 7 on their list of Top 25 Techno & Deep House Producers of 2013.
In April 2014, Hot Since 82 was featured as Mixmag's cover story, with a recent mix of his featured as the magazine's 'cover mix.'
Padley has toured extensively in Europe and North America and has headlined many of the world's leading electronic music festivals, including Creamfields and WMC.

Her Friday night show from 7pm to 9pm goes out to over a million people in the iconic role of 'officially starting the weekend'. So how did Annie get one of the most directional jobs in dance music and become the ego-free, box-fresh 'empress of whoop-whoop' that the dance nation has taken to heart?She comes from a musical family. Brother Rod is a folk musician. Sister Rachel is an artist and brother Davey is the lead singer with indie band The Crimea. 'I know every Pogues song by heart. I grew up properly in love with Thin Lizzy. There was always trad stuff like The Furies and Christy Moore playing and The Smiths'.Her first encounter with clubbing came when she arrived at Queens University Belfast as a 17-year-old. One of her English language lecturers 'a proper Cockney geezer' introduced her to Belfast's best techno night Shine – giving her an education in some legendary DJs. 'Andy Weatherall was a resident, Laurent Garnier played there, DJ Sneak played there, Cajmere played there as Green Velvet. The nice thing about clubbing in Belfast is that the scene is really small, it was the same group of people ending up at some party.'Towards the end of her English Literature degree Annie decided to get into radio and signed up for a post-graduate Masters at a college in Farnborough. She spent a depressing year working part time in a supermarket in the sleepy Hampshire town finishing her studies. With her Masters behind her she moved to London into a house with brother Davey and other members of his band The Crimea, who were flying high in the charts.'I had a mad few years of living in Camden and being a proper indie girl. I worked for the student radio network SBN and, had my own residency at The Underworld in Camden. That club was a 'walk in' club. You'd get every type of person in there from little skater boys, indie kids, punks, loads of tourists. Literally every walk of life was represented so it was a real lesson in keeping the dance floor full. It was only a year or two later I was doing The Mash Up so I brought that to my Radio 1 show.'Work experience at The Crimea's label V2 lead to a job as a radio plugger, then an online radio station called Net.FM aimed at men working in IT (which didn't take off) and at 23 years old her first job at the BBC as Steve Lamacq's broadcast assistant. Meanwhile Annie was presenting on the student radio network SBN 'interviewing bands at The Barfly on her lunch break'.The received wisdom was 'don't be a producer if you want to present' so her lunch time activities were kept quiet. Then one day they were having a meeting with Google projected against the boardroom wall and Mike Davies put Annie's name into the search engine for a joke, only to find a lot of links to her SBN shows. 'I was like, oh no, busted!' Her debut on Radio 1 was doing an ident for Mike Davies punk show as they liked the way 'ponk' sounded in her dulcet Dublin tones. After doing a demo she was filling in for her original inspiration Mary Anne Hobbs and anonymously voicing The One World Show. Then in July 2004 she was given The Annie Mac Show. She was 26.'Before I became a DJ myself I worked for three people. Steve Lamacq, Colin Murray and then Zane Lowe and I learnt a lot from each one. Steve is a really professional journalist. He's very particular and thorough and factual. He has a really deep knowledge and love of his music. Colin is kinda jokey and into features and the more creative side of radio. Because Zane is a musician he's much more musical about things. When he came to Radio 1 he was the first to stand up when he was DJing and use physical energy. And he used the music technology to be more musical with his broadcasting. I was properly grateful for that time behind the scenes. It gave me a real appreciation of how a radio show works.'In tandem her repute as a club DJ had been growing. For fun she started DJing at after and house parties when living in Belfast. After a year on Radio 1 she started her 'Annie Mac Presents' showcases at a single room in Fabric (inaugural artists Mylo and Justice). From humble beginnings it has grown into what Mixmag have called 'one of the biggest brands in clubland providing a platform for a generation of youthful, bass-driven, live-dance acts and making Annie herself one of the most in-demand club/festival DJs on the planet.'Annie is characteristically down to Earth about her achievements. 'I don't set out to represent a new generation. It was good timing for me. When I started club DJing I'd never played in a club. But the people that booked me at the beginning where very much the people that were coming up and not part of the Super Clubs thing. They were producers and DJs that were booking me and I became embroiled in their scenes.'Those contacts include people like Erol, the guy that brought dance music to indie kids and whole other host of young producers that share her bass-driven, jump-up aesthetic across genres. From a rejuvenated drum & bass (Shy FX) to house and electro producers like A-Trak right through to the rampant dub step and UK funky producers of the moment. In fact, Annie's show is a place where these genres stew together and change flavour under the national spotlight.'All I do when I work is sit at home on iChat swapping music with people' says Annie. Something which is bearing fruit in the exclusives she gives away on her www.anniemacpresents.com blog (recent example Skream remix of Bat For Lashes 'Pearl Dream'). 'A lot of people were expecting compromise in terms of music because of the time slot but the most exciting part of the move is that I haven't had to compromise. It's a testament to the music and the way everything has changed that that music fits that time so well.'Content: http://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/anniemac/biography

Get Carl Cox songs and albums from:
A professional DJ since his early teens. A musical ambassador and a veteran of acid house and a champion of techno – you name it, Carl's been there and done it, never losing sight of his passions – playing music, breaking tunes and celebrating life.
It was at the age of 15 that Carl was given a set of turntables and began working as a mobile DJ. Disco was the first music that captivated him but by the early 80s Cox had moved on to playing the same music as other young London DJs – rare groove, New York hip-hop and electro. He was perfectly placed to hear Chicago house music in its earliest forms, and when the epic 'Acid Trax' by Phuture (a.k.a. DJ Pierre) came out in early '87. "It was then that I thought, 'This is it,' says Carl. "I would do my parties, and I'd play old rare groove and hip hop and soul and I would say 'Right you've got to hear this Phuture track' and people would just stop. It's funny because all the people who thought I had freaked out then are the people who are making the music now."
As a founder of the sound, Carl rode the exploding British rave scene. He played the opening night of Danny Rampling's legendary Shoom, co-promoted The Project with Paul Oakenfold, held a residency at the Zap Club in Brighton and at the Sunrise rave in 1988, hooked up a third turntable for his dawn-breaking set, got 15,000 kids back on their feet, and established a personal rep for three-deck wizardry.
The next step was to make music, and Carl's 1991 debut single for Paul Oakenfold's Perfecto label, 'I Want You,' gave him a top 30 hit and a Top of the Pops appearance. Two more singles also made the charts. But Carl was a reluctant pop star and as the masses moved onto fluffy house and trance, and the hardcore created jungle, Cox retreated into the club world that had nurtured him and instead embraced the underground sounds of techno. "Techno drives home somewhere," he says of his core music. "It takes you to an element of surprise, not knowing where you're going. It's scary but wonderful at the same time."
Carl's classic releases include his 1995 mix CD, 'F.A.C.T,' which became a techno benchmark, selling over 250,000 copies, and the 1996 EP 'Two Paintings and a Drum,' which again broke the British top 30. Alongside Carl's 'Ultimate Music Management' company, which counted Josh Wink and Laurent Garnier among 27 clients, there was the Ultimatum record label, for which Carl recorded his third top 30 UK single, 'Sensual Sophis-ti-cat.' In 2005, Carl's third album, 'The Second Sign' caused a stir across Europe and reached number 3 in Spain's national chart. Also gaining critical acclaim was speaker freaker 'Dirty Bass,' a collaboration with Christian Smith, and the funky 'Give Me Your Love', both released on 23rd Century Records, an outlet for his own burgeoning production output.
Carl formed his own label, Intec Records, in 1999, scoring a series of underground hits and enjoying eight years at the forefront of electronic music. After its closure in 2006, Carl was still inundated with new music, finally deciding to re-launch the label as Intec Digital at the start of 2010. It's been a triumphant return, thanks to exclusives from some of the biggest names in techno. "The label couldn't be going better," says Carl. "It's great to be back at the helm discovering underground DJs."
Intec Digital was also the home for Carl's 6th studio album, 'All Roads Lead To the Dancefloor,' released to critical acclaim in late 2011 on state-of-the-art, self-updating USB technology. The USB offered far more than a conventional album, showcasing a range of styles across its 20+ tracks whilst also giving fans access to everything from interviews & behind the scenes footage, to tutorial, tips & tricks with Carl, and much more.
2013 saw the re-launch of Carl's seminal Pure Intec series, 9 years after the hugely successful original 'Pure Intec.' 'Pure Intec Two' was released in April, with Part 1 mixed by Carl Cox and Part 2, by DJ and Intec boss Jon Rundell and coincided with the launch of a new series of Intec club nights, with Carl playing a sold out XOYO in East London.
"Jon and I thought it was time," says Carl. "We'd been working hard the last few years to get Intec back to the forefront of Techno. We have a great roster, with very talented DJs that deserve recognition. This is our way of celebrating the label's success, showcasing some of our artists, and of course putting out some amazing tracks."
Carl's legendary Ibiza residency also continues to break boundaries. Celebrating an astounding 12 consecutive years at Space, Carl and Safehouse Management have built their weekly residency into one of the Island's most popular nights. Marking a change in direction from traditional Ibiza parties, Carl and his Space revolution has always been acclaimed for its adventurous and forward-thinking line-ups, musical direction and state of the art production. This, along with Carl's highly involved and passionate role as promoter, programmer and host, is why each year has seen a growth and progression from the last, both in terms of quality and size. "We have a successful night because we just batten down the hatches and stick to what we do best, which is give value for money," explains Carl. "People come back to us, as they're big believers in our brand. Also Space is a great club, they've spent a lot of money on it, and it's just getting better and better."
All this and still Carl's 'Global' radio show is still breaking records, now reaching over 16-million listeners worldwide and syndicated across 60 terrestrial FM, Satellite and DAB stations throughout 35 countries, making him one of the most important broadcasters on the planet.

Get Shy FX songs and albums from:
Shy FX is the pseudonym of Andre Williams, an English DJ and producer from London. He specialises in drum and bass and jungle music.
Shy FX's debut record was "Jungle Love", released in 1992 on the Permission to Dance label. Soon after, he signed to Sound of the Underground Records (often abbreviated as S.O.U.R.) and in 1994 released the breakthrough ragga jungle track "Original Nuttah" (featuring vocals from MC UK Apache) which helped to cement his position as a mainstay producer of the jungle/drum & bass scene.
Throughout his career, he has collaborated with T Power, both as Ebony Dubsters and Shy FX and T Power; their 2001 breakthrough track "Shake Ur Body" with vocalist Di was a number 7 hit in the UK Singles Chart. Released on EMI subsidiary Positiva, it gained widespread support from both club and commercial radio DJs and helped to further popularise drum & bass as a mainstream music genre.
The success of "Shake Ur Body" was followed by the duo's album Set It Off, released in 2002 on Pete Tong's label FFRR. Several EPs and single releases followed; by 2005, Shy FX had made the decision to consolidate his releases onto his own label and founded Digital Soundboy Recordings. In collaboration with T Power, they subsequently released the album Diary of a Digital Sound Boy on 17 October 2005, featuring the songs "Feelings", "On The Run" and "Plastic Soul". Shy FX and T Power also released "Don't Wanna Know" featuring Di and MC Skibadee. The song was notably used on the UK television programme Soccer AM as part of the 'Skills Skool' feature.
Shy FX produced "Da Feelin" for Dizzee Rascal's 2007 album, Maths + English. He also produced "Can't Tek No More" on Dizzee Rascal's 2009 album, Tongue N' Cheek. His remix of Naughty Boy, Wiley and Emeli Sandé's song "Never Be Your Woman" was released as the single rather than the original mix. Shy's remix charted at number eight on the UK Singles Chart. He remixed "She Said", a number 3 UK chart single by Plan B. His remix was released on both the "She Said" single and on the deluxe edition of Plan B's The Defamation of Strickland Banks.
More recently, he produced "Raver" featuring Kano, Donae'o and Roses Gabor, plus the UK artist Yasmin's first single, "On My Own". He announced that his album, Larger Than Life, was originally scheduled for a 2011 release but has since been renamed Cornerstone and doesn't have a fixed release date.
Williams also produced Yasmin's third single "Light Up (The World)", which features Ms. Dynamite. It peaked at No. 50 in the UK Singles Chart.
DJ Fresh's single "Gold Dust" was re-released, with the Shy FX Re-Edit as a single, on 2 December 2012. The extended play includes multiple new remixes.
In 2013, he released a single called "Soon Come" featuring Liam Bailey, famous for his collaboration with Chase & Status on their track "Blind Faith". The song reached number 55 in the UK Singles Chart. He also released the single "Cloud 9" in 2013, a collaboration with Ms. Dynamite.
In August 2014 Shy FX remixed the title track from London Grammar's debut album "If You Wait".
For 2014's Red Bull Culture Clash, Shy FX joined forces with Chase & Status, David Rodigan and MC Rage to form the soundsystem Rebel Sound. They went on to win the clash, defeating fellow crews Stone Love, Boy Better Know and A$AP Mob.
Digital Soundboy label
Williams and T Power (Marc Royal) started the Digital Soundboy label in 2005, initially releasing their own material but quickly expanding to include the artists Visionary, Benny Page and Breakage. The label subsequently grew its genre coverage to the point where its discography includes electro, drum and bass, jungle, dubstep, house and UK funky releases from dozens of artists. All releases are observable as being in Digital Soundboy's "house style", as is the case with most drum and bass and dubstep labels.
Noted dubstep producers Skream, Benga and Caspa have all released tracks on DSB, as have drum and bass and dubstep crossover artists Breakage, Calibre, DJ Fresh and Redlight (a.k.a. DJ Clipz).

Get Darren Styles songs and albums from:
Darren James Mew (born 23 May 1975), better known as Darren Styles, is an English record producer, disc jockey, singer and songwriter from Colchester, England. Originally a member of the breakbeat hardcore group DJ Force & The Evolution, Styles found success during the 1990s as one half of Force & Styles. The duo were pioneers of happy hardcore and wrote several well-known songs such as "Heart of Gold", "Pretty Green Eyes" and "Paradise & Dreams".
In the early 2000s, Darren Styles began producing more trance-influenced records with Mark Brady as Styles & Breeze. The duo released two hit singles "You're Shining" (2004) and "Heartbeatz" (2005) which both reached the Top 20 of the UK Singles Chart. They have been involved in all volumes of the popular Clubland X-Treme Hardcore compilation series.
As a solo artist, Styles has released two studio albums, the Gold-selling Skydivin' (2008) and Feel the Pressure (2010). He has also frequently collaborated with several other artists such as Hixxy, Ultrabeat and N-Force.
Styles was born as Darren James Mew in Colchester, Essex, England. He was encouraged to play music from an early age by his father, a blues fan, and always had a passion for music. He spent many nights mastering his ability on the keyboard and developing his own style, inspired by dance music. In February 1992 in Clacton-on-Sea, Styles had his first "hands on" experience of the underground rave scene in "Oscar's Nightclub" on Clacton Pier. This event lead to him wanting to be a part of the dance music community.
Force & Styles:
His first records were as part of the breakbeat hardcore group DJ Force & The Evolution (with Paul Hobbs, James Broomfield and Paul Hughes) released in 1993. The group signed to hardcore record label Kniteforce and many of their tracks were played by Carl Cox. The group also produced tracks using the alias A Sense of Summer for another hardcore label Universal Records owned by Slipmatt.
In 1995, he and Paul Hobbs set up their own label UK Dance Records so they could quickly release more material and have complete artistic license over their records. They began producing using the alias Force & Styles and released many 12-inch records on UK Dance and by 1996 their popularity had grown so that they were DJing every weekend up and down the UK, as well as touring Australia, North America, and Ibiza on a regular basis. The two also held residencies at various events including those by Slammin Vinyl, Helter Skelter and United Dance.
By 1997, they had produced some of the biggest happy hardcore tracks of the time, many of which went on to be covered by commercial dance artists, including singles "Heart of Gold", "Paradise & Dreams", "Pretty Green Eyes", "Pacific Sun" and "Field of Dreams". Force & Styles picked up many awards at this time and they were the first ever hardcore DJs to do a guest mix for Pete Tong's Essential Mix radio show on BBC Radio 1.
Force & Styles released three albums: All over the UK (1996), Simply Electric (1998) - a compilation of tracks by DJ Force & The Evolution and Force & Styles - and their greatest hits album Heart of Gold (2000).
Styles & Breeze:
During the early 2000s, Styles began adopting a more trance influenced sound and started producing with Mark Brady as Styles & Breeze. Most notable of these productions was the single "Let Me Fly" produced under the name 'Infextious' and released on Hard House label Nukleuz. They also started making Hardcore which was released as 12" records for Hixxy's label Raver Baby.
Styles & Breeze have also released two top 20 singles, "You're Shining" and "Heartbeatz" featuring Karen Danzig, on the major dance label All Around The World.
Styles' first solo record was "Feelin' Fine" which was released as Unique in 1998. His solo career as Darren Styles started in 2002 after releasing a record for Nukleuz and other labels. He has also released many records on Raver Baby and his first solo single was "Save Me" released on All Around the World
Styles has released singles collaborating with other artists on tracks such as "Sure Feels Good" and "Discolights" with Ultrabeat and "Right by Your Side" with N-Force. In 2008, he released Skydivin'. The album was a collection of old and new hardcore and commercial songs. This album reached No. 4 in the UK, # 41 in Ireland and has since been certified Gold in the UK. His follow up single to "Discolights" with Ultrabeat was the song "Girls Like You", released 2 February 2009. Styles owns Junkbox Records which has released a number of singles.
In June and July 2009, Styles and Ultrabeat embarked on a ten-date UK-wide co-headlined tour, accompanied by Breeze, Infextious, DJ Frisco, MC Domino, Rebecca Rudd (Ultrabeat) and N-force. Starting in Sheffield, the tour went to Liverpool, Birmingham, Bristol, Dublin, Belfast, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester and London. In late November and early December 2009, Styles was part of Clubland Live 3 which toured through England, Scotland and Ireland.
Styles' new album Feel the Pressure was released on 23 August 2010, and features his top new singles such as "Outta My Head", "Sound Without a Name" and "Holding On".
Styles is married to Fiona Merry who appeared on the reality television series Shipwrecked. They had a baby girl on 3 November 2010.

Get Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano songs and albums from:
People always ask if there is something in the water in Holland that makes this tiny country churn out so many prolific and successful DJs and producers. Seems there may be some credence to this tale because we have another pair joining the ranks of the Dutch musical super elite. Welcome to the year of Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano! These two guys from Amsterdam met in 2006 in the clothing store where Sunnery worked, and where Ryan applied for an internship. While working together they noticed a lot of similar interests, and started working on some music together. From that moment on the two never stopped doing what they love most and they've created a big name for themselves since then. Axwell [SHM] said after playing with them in Ibiza that: "If there were a Dutch version of Swedish House Mafia, it would be Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano." Impressive accolades for these relative newcomers, who were plucked from their obscure retail jobs back in 2007. It seems their funky house and tribal sound struck a chord with partygoers and, after gaining popularity in their home country, these best friends took their electric energy worldwide. Sunnery and Ryan DJ sets are becoming the stuff of legend. With hair flopping and body rockin', there is no time to sit on the sidelines at one of their shows. They embody dance music fully, bringing the crowd to epic peaks, arms in the air and smiles all around. It's not a genre thing, it's a music thing, and Sunnery and Ryan convey that passion to the dance floor in a way very few artists can. See them one time and you will understand.

With their star on the rise, Sunnery and Ryan are now part of the superstar DJ set and tour circuit. Their diary reads like a massive global pilgrimage, and in a way, it is just that. A way to preach the gospel of house music, in all its vast forms, to a new generation of music lovers. From the USA to Mexico, Brazil to Guatemala, The Netherlands, The United Kingdom, Asia, Russia and all points in between, these two house music champions are breaking new ground one country at a time. Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano have quickly ascended into the upper echelon of dance music producers with the release of monster anthems like 'Tribeca' and their remake of Tiesto's 'Lethal Industry.' Fans and tastemakers all have supported each Sunnery and Ryan release with the latter track being a weapon of choice for Armin van Buuren, Sander van Doorn, David Guetta and the list goes on and on. Even the don of EDM, Pete Tong made Lethal Industry his 'Essential Selection' not once, but twice! Steve Angello scooped up their tune 'Markuzza' (along with Traffic and Snitch) for his Size Records imprint realizing early on what a masterpiece it was. Ground breaking hits lead to remix work, and Sunnery and Ryan are the go to producers for some of dance music's most respected artists. To date the boys have reworked tracks for Sander Kleinenberg ('This Is Our Night'), Kaskade ('Dynasty') and Ferry Corsten's ('Ain't No Stoppin'). With recent successful tracks such as 'Stiffness' with Chocolate Puma, 'Triton' with Dubvision (also the anthem for Dance Valley 2013) and 'Sound of The underground', a collaboration with Nicky Romero, got to the top 3 in Beatport's Top 100, these two prove to be on top of the dance scene.

Something only these guys can do. Here's where we tell you that Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano are the next big thing, headed to #1 and all that bio fluff.

Get Pan-Pot songs and albums from:
Pan-Pot is the name of the Berlin-based techno duo, German DJs and music producers Tassilo Ippenberger and Thomas Benedix.
Since their launch in 2005, Pan-Pot have established their presence in the modern techno scene, reaching popularity with the release of their debut album, Pan-O-Rama, on Anja Schneider's Mobilee label.
Their music repertoire is best defined as underground-oriented and yet independent of any existing genres of contemporary sounds, traversing techno and house but having experimental elements with strong IDM influences.
The duo are credited with producing live sets combined with vocals that are described as revealing a deep understanding of the dancefloor needs of clubs and festivals.
Tassilo and Thomas met in 2003 at Berlin's SAE Institute where they studied audio engineering. There the two producers completed their studies in sound production and design, which helped them in defining Pan-Pot's sound aesthetic when they started producing music together.
In 2005, the duo booked Anja Schneider for one of their events, which coincidentally gave them the opportunity to establish a favorable connection with her then nascent Mobilee imprint. After a few weeks the label launched their second release, which was Pan-Pot's official debut, "Copy and Paste". Since then a steady stream of tracks and remixes have been released on Mobilee and Einmaleins Musik.
The defining moment of Pan-Pot's career came in 2007, with the release of their debut artist album, Pan-O-Rama. Tracks such as "Charly" and "Captain My Captain" became hits, which made the artists known for their blend of melodic and plain techno and house.
In 2014, Pan-Pot launch their own imprint, Second State, moving into a new chapter of their career.

Get Pete Tong songs and albums from:
There are few individuals in the world of dance music who can claim the kind of influence Pete Tong has had over the last twenty years. As the voice of Radio 1's prestigious dance programming, Pete has held a commanding presence over the industry for more than two decades. His unique position has earned him a reputation as the global ambassador of dance music. With an unparalleled ear for new talent, Tong has become the leading tastemaker of the electronic generation. While he's known publicly as Pete Tong the DJ, behind the scenes, he's an industry icon.
Having spent the majority of his life in England, Pete has recently resettled in Los Angeles to begin a new chapter in his life: "The electronic dance music scene in the USA has reached a critical mass and the opportunities for our world are taking us into uncharted territory. I feel now it's essential to be in the middle of all that."
Tong has wasted little time in establishing himself in the US, having helped inaugurate Clear Channel Entertainment's Evolution dance brand in 2013 and recently expanding the programming to the extended two-hour segment, The Evolution Beatport Show with Pete Tong, broadcasting on 90 different Top 40 stations in the US. Meanwhile, his world famous BBC Radio 1 shows have only grown in popularity. Their collective reach has soared into the millions, broadcasting globally thanks to the BBC iPlayer. The Essential Mix continues to be the Holy Grail of mix shows, while Tong's Essential Selection is still the best place to premiere a new record.
On the DJing front, Tong is currently championing three premier All Gone Pete Tong residencies in the US. Once a month, you can find him bridging the gap to the underground at Sound Nightclub in Los Angeles, while in Miami, he's keeping the integrity of club culture alive at Story. His residency at the SLS Las Vegas sees him performing regularly at the brand new LiFE club, where he's introducing a whole new palette of underground sounds to the party mecca. Finally, the All Gone Pete Tong brand has achieved global renown through world-class parties in Miami during WMC and Ibiza as well as dedicated stages at festivals like Creamfields, TomorrowWorld, and SW4.
As a music producer, Tong has led an esteemed career over the years with notable releases on Pets Recordings, Ministry of Sound, Toolroom Records and more. His compilations have garnered critical acclaim–most notably 2013's 60-track anthology, The Pete Tong Collection. More recently, he's debuted on Suara with deep house anthem "The Bumps" alongside John Monkman, while also curating All Gone Ibiza 2014 alongside Tensnake for Defected as part of his All Gone Pete Tong compilation series.
On the business side, Tong continues to be a prominent force in both the booking and A&R worlds. In 2008, he co-founded WME's electronic music division alongside Joel Zimmerman, helping to create one of the industry's first dedicated dance music booking agencies. As Tong became more invested in his role at WME, he saw an exciting opportunity to relocate to the US and build out his network. Now, from his office in the heart of Los Angeles, Tong helps oversee one of the most powerful booking agencies in the world.
Tong began his career as a part-time journalist and radio DJ for local stations in Kent. In 1983, he began working for London Records, quickly signing Run DMC in a career defining move. As his reputation for A&R grew, he established FFRR Records as a subsidiary of London Records, immediately signing Salt-n-Pepa in another stroke of insight. The label would go on to play a crucial role in the evolution of house and dance music, providing the foundations for such seminal artists as Orbital, Goldie, Brand New Heavies, Frankie Knuckles, Lil Louis, Armin van Helden and more.
In 1987, as house music began to take off, Tong joined Capital Radio, finding himself at the ground floor of a blossoming rave scene. In 1991, his acclaim led him to a new home at Radio 1, where Pete was greeted by a receptive youth culture on the now iconic show, Essential Selection. Tong was instrumental in the rebranding of Radio 1 in the '90s, helping steer the station towards the controversial yet flourishing sounds of house, techno, jungle and the like. In the years that would follow, Tong would go on to become the definitive voice of dance music.
Now, with his influence riding at an all-time high, Tong has relaunched his label FFRR, reclaiming his reputation for A&R and signing acts like Oliver Heldens, The Magician, Blonde and The Disciples. On top of this, he's also founded The International Music Summit, a three-day dance music conference held in Ibiza, Los Angeles and Singapore. Now in its 6th year, the event is viewed in the industry as The Premier Platform for Thought Leadership in Electronic Music.
Outside of his achievements in dance music, Pete Tong has also made a reputable career in the film industry. As a musical supervisor, he's been tapped to oversee films such as The Beach, Human Traffic, 24 Hour Party People, and of course the cult classic, It's All Gone Pete Tong, for which Pete was also an executive producer. More recently, Tong was selected to help score the film Harry Brown with regular contributor Paul Rogers.
When all is said and done, one shudders to think what dance music would have been like without Pete Tong's influence. Over the years, he's played a crucial role in breaking new artists and changing the way people think about electronic music. With his new found home in Los Angeles, the British icon is looking to revolutionize the perception of dance music in America. If there's anyone up for the task, it's Pete Tong.

Get Sonny Fodera songs and albums from:
Having come up through the ranks at a startling rate, Australian Sonny Fodera is now leading from the front. Over the last couple of years, the man originally turned on to the dance by Derrick Carter has fomented his own groove driven, emotive brand of house that now resonates around the world. Turning heads right from the off were his compilations on Deep Down and Defected, which found Sonny adding his remix flair to a bunch of classics, and after that came sophomore effort After Parties & Aeroplanes. Again a collaborative affair featuring the likes of Doorly, Gene Farris and Cajmere, it was a more jacking, sharp-edged treat designed for maximum dance floor impact, but was also stuffed with unforgettable vocals that agin saw Sonny stepping up his game.
2016 saw the already influential artist stepping up yet again, this time by making his brilliant entry into the hallowed Defected In the House series. His standout contribution is a terrific three disc affair that is jam packed with his own stellar originals and remixes as well as some brand new and exclusive material (including Sonny Fodera ft. Alex Mills – 'Always Gonna Be,' Sonny Fodera ft. Shannon Saunders 'Over This' and 'The Definition' amongst many others). Aside from that high impact work, Sonny has also turned out a consistently excellent string of EPs on labels like Defected, Dirtybird and Visionquest, as well as remixing Rudimental. Never was he in finer form that with 'Let Go', a collaboration with Cervendos that sat pretty in the Beatport Deep House Top 10 for no fewer than 12 weeks in 2014, whilst more recently, his current single with Yasmin, 'Feelin U' shot straight in to the 2nd spot in the Beatport chart, only to be outdone by a stunning remix of Gershon Jackson on the legendary Strictly Rhythm label. As such, Sony currently has no fewer than six releases in the Beatport Deep House Top Ten, proving that he is very much creating the sounds of now for DJs and dancers everywhere.
As a result, of course, Sonny is a hugely in demand DJ who started 2016 with a 30 date tour of the UK, United States and Australia. It was his smooth technical skills in the booth that first won him the affections of Green Velvet, and nowadays he weaves his tight, seductive sets featuring all colours of the house spectrum everywhere from Footwork Toronto to Warung in Brazil, Cielo in New York City to Pacha, Sankeys, Amnesia DC10 and in Ibiza as well as We ARE FSTVL and many others.
The future is just as bright as the past for Sonny, who was born in Adelaide, Australia, and has lived between there, Ibiza, the USA and the UK since, though he is currently settled in London. It means he is fully focussed on the next chapter, which already promises to be a thrilling one for his fans, with a new album due on Defected 'Frequently Flying' , as well as more EPs on influential labels like Cajual and Lee Foss's highly anticipated new imprint, Repoulate Mars.

At the same time, he had began to get into producing and obtained a Higher National Diploma in Sound Operations and Music Technology. His collaboration with John O'Callaghan entitled Restricted Motion was signed to Discover Records by label boss John Askew.

The track is set for full release in May on sub label Banshee Works. His track with O'Callaghan, Exactly, singed to Discover Records was regarded by many as the track of the Winter Music Conferance 06, and became a firm favourite of Armin Van Buuren and Paul Van Dyk. It was remixed by one of his idols, Giuseppe Ottaviani of NU-NRG, and was requested for no less than fifteen album compilations.It is one of the strongest trance packages to be released this year. The track is considered by many to be one of the best tunes of the year and one of the biggest trance anthems of Ibiza 2006. 2006 continued to be a massive year as he had two more edits rekeased. His edit's of Melly - Arrival and Sean Tyas - Lift were released on GRH and Discover Records, both tracks being particular favourites of Eddie Halliwell.

Get Nicole Moudaber songs and albums from:
Nicole Moudaber is a Nigerian music producer and DJ born in Nigeria, raised there and moved to London after graduating from Richmond College with Social Sciences BS degree. In 2009, Carl Cox described her as "the most underrated DJ" to DJ Magazine, which helped to launch her career. Her 2013 debut album Believe was Number 1 for a month on the Beatport techno, tech house, and deep house charts. Moudaber has teamed with techno notables such as Carl Cox, Adam Beyer, etc. and she also launched MOOD Records imprint in 2012.
While living in Lebanon, Moudaber was one of the first people to bring dance music to Beirut. After the war in 1996 her "Trashy Renaissance" party in Beirut was the first rave event of its kind and prompted her to bring out international DJs, including Paul Van Dyk and Anthony Pappa for the first time to the Middle East. Moudaber describes her first party as: "I threw [it] in the middle of Beirut city was in the vicinity of a mosque and a cathedral, it was meant to defy the notion of hatred and prove we can do it together (the new generation) through music. It was a total success."
One of Moudaber's all-inclusive electronic music parties was detailed in the media and resulted in her being summoned by the police:
"At the time Syrians were heavily involved in Lebanon and I had started putting on parties. One happened to be around Halloween and as a result, all the gays took advantage and came dressed up as drag queens and other outrageous stuff—all in the name of fun. It turned out that undercover journalists were scouting the party. They took photos and it ended up being a five-page spread in the Middle Eastern equivalent of Cosmopolitan talking about homosexuality and perversion in the Middle East—my party being heavily featured within this article. Five months down the line I was asked to go down to the police station because the authorities had some questions for me. When I got down there, they were treating me like a terrorist, asking me all sorts of questions about my affiliation with homosexual people and whether I had seen them doing things. It was a really sad and outrageous situation, but luckily I had connections and therefore didn't stay long. It was enough to persuade me that I was wasting my time out there and that these people would never get that sense of ritual and community I was trying to bring within these events, so I very much stuck to London and Europe from there onwards."
Moudaber is listed as a Resident Advisor Top 1000 artist.

Get Culture Shock songs and albums from:
There are at least four bands/projects named Culture Shock: 1) Culture Shock were an anarcho-punk / punk-dub-ska band formed in Warminster, Wiltshire, UK, in 1986 by Dick Lucas, previously of the Subhumans. 2) Culture Shock is a James Pountney, a young up-and-coming drum and bass DJ/producer from London who is signed to Ram Records. 3) Culture Shock is a hardcore punk band, with thrash influences, from Syracuse, New York. 4) Culture Shock are a Denver straight edge hardcore band. 1) Culture Shock were an anarcho-punk / punk-dub-ska band formed in Warminster, Wiltshire, UK, in 1986 by Dick Lucas, previously of the Subhumans. Their three LPs, "Go Wild", "Onwards and Upwards" and "All The Time!", were released on Bluurg Records. They also did 205 gigs between 86-89. Culture Shock mixed their punk roots with ska and reggae music to a previously unheard extent and influenced the styles of bands like AOS3, Radical Dance Faction, Back To The Planet, Bender, The AK 47's, The Dicemen at a time when the free festival scene was under state attack following the cessation of the Stonehenge Festival; Culture Shock were one of a heap of bands playing as many festivals as possible, alongside their more regular gigs and this earned them a broard range of support. Dick's lyrics were mostly concerned with social and political issues, from cruelty to animals, Northern Ireland, war, and social alienation, but were far from angry rants, often finding a positive and empowering perspective. Culture Shock split in 1989, as Bill and Nigel both had young families to support. Dick went on to form Citizen Fish with Jasper, the bassist for Culture Shock's final album, and two other former members of the Subhumans. Nigel died in 1993. Members: * Dick Lucas (vocals) * Nige (guitar, vocals) * Paul (bass - on Go Wild, and Onwards and Upwards) * Bill (drums) * Jasper (bass - on All the Time) Discography LPs * Go Wild (Fish 18) * Onwards and Upwards (Fish 20) * All the Time (Fish 23) Cassette only * Living History Demo 86 (Bluurg Tapes 66) * Reality Stop No.44 (Bluurg Tapes 71) * Hot and Sweaty live compilation (Bluurg Tapes 79) In 2011, Bluurg records (Dick Lucas) released "Everything", a three CD package with detailed lyric / interview / biography booklet. This is also available from Active Distribution (Active 25) CD1: Go Wild and All The Time CD2: Onwards and Upwards + "Stonehenge" from the EP of the same name and two live tracks ("Home Economics" and "New York, New York". CD3: The "Living History" demo and the "Reality Stop #44" demo (19 tracks) Myspace fan site: http://www.myspace.com/civilizationstreet 2) Culture Shock is a James Pountney, a young up-and-coming drum and bass DJ/producer from London who is signed to Ram Records. James was brought up in a musical household with both parents involved with Classical music, and always showed a healthy curiosity about music, listening to anything from Jazz to house. He first heard about drum and bass around 96 on London's pirate radio stations and at school where everyone talked about Jungle music being the cool new thing. In his own words, 'it sounded totally alien' and he was blown away. He started reading music technology magazines, managed to set up a basic studio and started experimenting. James' first release happened thanks to a hook up with Dom Angus (Dom & Roland) though their parents who are friends and colleagues. The result was the 2004 'Vega EP' on Moving Shadow. It was well received but unfortunately the seminal label stopped releasing music and it was another two years before James found another home with the legendary Ram Records. Impressed by the production skills displayed on the Vega EP, Andy C followed the progress of the young producer and ended up signing him to his label, with the first track 'The Bypass' - one of Optical's favourite tunes - appearing on 2006's Dimension EP and getting tongues wagging on the scene. James was then given the chance to make his own EP, and 'the third stage' was released in summer 2007. It included the suave 'Rework', produced in partnership with the Brookes Brothers, and a brilliant electro-breaks track 'Asteroids' that fits well with James' open approach to music: 'I've been into drum and bass for a long, long time - he recently told Knowlede magazine - That is great but it's all about bringing in influences from elsewhere. I am really into all electronic music and I listen to a lot of techno and electro'. With signing Culture shock to its prestigious stable, Ram are nurturing yet another talent destined to expend the boundaries of the scene. 3) Culture Shock is a hardcore punk band, with thrash influences, from Syracuse, New York. The band formed in late 2005 with members TJ (v), Andrew (v), Trevor (g), Richard (b) and Eddie (d). After the band's first few shows, in early 2006, Andrew left to focus on other bands. Andrew would later rejoin on drums when Eddie left the band in the spring of 2007. The band released their first, self-recorded/self-released demo in the spring of 2006, and a re-recorded (and less distributed) version of the same demo later the same year with one less track. A second album, recorded by a friend of the band and self-released, features 9 new songs, and was released at a Syracuse locals fest (Assault City Hardcore Fest) with 100 copies personally spray painted. The bands lyrical content focuses on political, economic and social realities in the greater society as well as within the hardcore punk scene, and generally manifests in expressions of anger, cynicism and disgust. Several songs also include personal life experiences of the band's vocalist. 4) STRAIGHT EDGE FUCK YOU

In the words of Judge Jules', Eddie looks in to people's eyes and he performs. Incredible stage performance, incredible skills, and an almost telepathic ability to read a crowd - Eddie's got everything.'

Behind the mixer Eddie as a hive of activity, constantly manipulating the music with lightning cuts, layers of effects and slick scratches. Playing tracks from across a broad musical spectrum - trance, techno, house and electro - he harnesses the energy of every beat, synth, hi-hat, squelch and squeak, using his technical expertise to generate energy and manipulate new sounds. His peers acknowledge him as one of the leading innovators when it comes to using technology to push boundaries, as Paul Van Dyk pointed out: "Now kids just use them, for example, Eddie Halliwell -- what he does with those Pioneer CD players is f*cking nuts! He had no hesitation; he just went for it and has probably got the best out of the machine". Tiesto has also always shown great support to Eddie and recently labeled Eddie as a 'Legend,' in an interview with DJ Magazine! Eddie reached into millions of UK homes with his own BBC Radio ONE show, along with seven essential mixes, with his 8th recorded at Creamfields 2011! Eddie now broadcasts to over 11 million worldwide listeners via his new syndicated radio show - FIRE IT UP RADIO. His success has visibly boomed over the years, particularly with Eddie's own concept show ED-IT (Eddie DJing with Integrated New Technology), which saw Creamfields Festival erupt making him the must-see DJ of the weekend. 2011 has been another immense year for Eddie, with the launch of Eddie's new label FIUR and much anticipated release of his debut track, NEON, with more tracks to follow shortly. Events that Eddie has headlined this year include: Poland's Sunrise Festival, Wet Electric OC, Global Gathering and Creamfields, as well as performing his 5th year as Cream Ibiza resident alongside Calvin Harris, Laidback Luke and Paul Van Dyk - which saw a record breaking year at Amnesia.

Get Malaa songs and albums from:
Malaa is an electronic music DJ and producer, who is signed to Tchami's label Confession. He broke onto the electronic music scene through his single "Notorious", which was the second release on Confession. His identity is unknown. He appears in public as a balaclava-wearing man.
Malaa's identity is unknown. It is strongly suggested that Malaa consists of a duo with DJs DJ Snake and Tchami, as they are credited often on each other's track productions and are connected to the project via remixes. It is also speculated that Mercer is involved in Malaa, since the same management team is shared between the three artists. Through a Reddit post made on the topic, Redditors discovered a tweet on Twitter where a user wrote "cant believe im opening for dj snake + tchami's side project next thursday", while linking to a Soundcloud mix by Malaa. The tweet was then favourited by DJ Snake's Twitter account, which hints his participation on the topic. French DJ Sebastien Benett is also speculated to be Malaa, due to the quick removal of a Facebook comment from Mercer's profile which stated that Malaa was a nickname of Benett, and that the last posts by Benett on Soundcloud coincide with the first appearances of Malaa.
On September 2017, Malaa and French future house artist Tchami announced their "No Redemption" tour which was held in North America. To promote the tour event, they released a hip-hop influenced house track titled "Summer 99" on 29 September 2017.Malaa is known for his "Who Is Malaa?" continuous mixes which he releases through Soundcloud, which feature ghetto house and future house tracks.
Pardon My French
Malaa is currently part of the Pardon My French team, a collective of four French DJs composed of DJ Snake, Mercer, Tchami and himself. Throughout the year 2016 and early 2017, the collective went on a Pardon My French Tour in North America.

Get Sidney Charles songs and albums from:
It might have come as a surprise to some that Hamburg's Sidney Charles topped Resident Advisor's Top 100 Most Charted Artists of 2013, but it's an accolade that speaks volumes about both his approach to music and his prolific, consistent output.
Born Sidney Charles Hurricane Vieljans (yes, really), his journey towards the world of house and techno began when he first started DJing hip-hop, soul and funk at the age of 15. Taking his cues from the golden age of turntablism and associated culture in the late '80s and early '90s, his attentions were led towards other sounds of the era also enjoying their first heyday. His infatuation with those classic 4/4 club sounds is something that lives and breathes vividly in his music today. "I see myself mainly connected with the raw house sound" he says of the style he projects with his productions and DJ sets today. "I am highly influenced by the early '90s. Jacking beats; heavy kicks; dirty highs. But I also like to experiment a lot to not make people bored of a certain sound." Whatever shade of house or techno he's producing, it's always packed full of hard grooves, raw sounds and a classy simplicity that lets the track do what it's supposed to do: make your ass wiggle.
For a producer who only started releasing music in 2011, Sidney's achievements are all the more impressive. In the space of just three years, his works have graced bastions of house and techno such as Avotre, 8bit, I Am A House Gangster, Moda Black, Off, VIVa, Kling Klong, SCI+TEC, Suara and Area Remote - each release adding to his clout and helping him to become one of the biggest names in the underground. And that's where he wants to stay. He has no lofty aspirations to play arena shows or break through into the mainstream of electronic music. He'd rather stay true to the scene and surroundings he loves and develop and grow therein.
"I think the most important thing for me is that people take my music as a personal part of me" he says. "That means I can create an image mostly characterised by authenticity. So I don't need to play for the biggest fees in the biggest clubs. I am mainly interested in the underground scene itself and being an active and creative part of it. With my music and my activeness in the scene as a DJ or otherwise. I want to give my part to keep the underground alive. As my music is meant to be honest, I also see myself more playing in clubs which are not fancy or posh-like. I see myself in more underground-orientated locations like Sankeys, fabric, Watergate, Panoramabar..."
Along with his lengthy studio stints and packed DJing schedule, his role as A&R for Santé's burgeoning Avotre imprint and the occasional parties he throws in his hometown ensure that he's constantly immersed in his passion. While his focus is on making dancefloors vibrate, he's also working on an album and a project with like-minded star Darius Syrossian and is keeping plans for his own record label in the back of his mind.
With the diversity he's displayed and the continually acclaimed output he's been creating, there's little doubt that Sidney Charles can continue to grow and evolve in the years to come - even within those refreshingly focused parameters which he has set for himself.Source: https://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/sidneycharles/biography

Noisecontrollers are well-known for their rough pounding kicks and astonishing melodies. In 2007 they decided to introduce a special live act in response to their enormous success. This resulted in them playing all over Europe, the USA and Australia within just one year.MilestonesIn the following years, Noisecontrollers released countless tracks on Fusion Records, Scantraxx Records and on their own label Digital Age. Some of their greatest hits included tracks such as Gimme Love, So High and Faster 'n Further. Additionally, Noisecontrollers created anthems for DefQon, Decibel, Iqon and In Qontrol. Solo nights followed in The Outland (Rotterdam) in 2010, and at Thrillogy in 2011. Another milestone was the release of Noisecontrollers' first album E=NC2's in 2012. The album release occurred simultaneously with one of the most memorable events in Noisecontrollers' history: X-Qlusive Noisecontrollers in the Heineken Music Hall. The spin off was incredible and Noisecontrollers' popularity was unbeatable. Noisecontrollers #27 position in the DJ Mag in 2012 is a testament to their success. The Noisecontrollers' SoundThe Noisecontrollers' sound has undergone many changes in the last couple of years, and the public has been introduced to a more melodious Hardstyle sound. The Noisecontrollers' palette of sounds is very broad and consists of harder and softer sounds. It is therefore almost impossible to predict what will come next. However, Noisecontrollers' creativity does not cease with Hardstyle. For example, a number of tracks have been released in the last couple of years that include different, experimental sounds, which go far beyond the boundaries of Hardstyle. The release of Get Loose in 2012 and their remix of Hardwell's track Apollo has proven that these kind of tracks are just as successful. Noisecontrollers are eclectic and have an open mind to new and different sounds, which is their distinguishing trademark.Noisecontrollers as a Solo ActIn 2013, after having shared many great and unique experiences, Arjan decided to follow a new path in music and announced his departure from Noisecontrollers. Bas will thus, 1st of January 2014, continue to produce the Noisecontrollers' sound as a solo act. The break-up was announced right before Qlimax 2013, which turned out to be Arjan's unofficial goodbye performance.
