Superstar DJ's

Sebastian Ingrosso

Sebastian Ingrosso is that rare thing in the world of dance music: a musician who understands the world of melodies just as much as he understands the power of the kick drum. Sebastian’s father owned two record labels, and from the tender age of 14 Ingrosso could be found in the studio producing music. His first official remix was released on Mega Records in 1999 and for over a decade Ingrosso has been releasing a steady stream of original tracks and remixes. In 2009, Sebastian, Dirty South and David Guetta produced ‘How Soon Is Now’ with Julia McKnight, which has become a modern day vocal house classic. Other tracks include ‘Leave The World behind’ on Axtone, ‘Umbrella’ on Data, ‘Laktos’ on Refune, an amazing re-edit of ‘Swimming Places’ from Julian Jabre on Defected, Royksopp and Hard Fi's 'Suburban Knights', the searing remix of 'Jack You' with Steve Angello for Diddy and Felix which was approved by Sean Combs himself, MGMT’s ‘Kids’ and most recently Miike Snow’s ‘Silvia’. 2010 saw him co-write and co-produce ‘Cupid Boy’, one of the key electronic anthems on Kylie’s new Number 1 album.

Axwell

The king of the sun-kissed summer anthem; the mogul behind one of the hottest imprints on the planet; a superstar producer and DJ who’s never lost the giddy enthusiasm of a fledgling clubber; and one of the most successful and influential remixers of the 21st century. By anyone’s standards, Axel ‘Axwell’ Hedfors is a giant of modern-day dance music – and he’s only going to get bigger. Axwell’s steady ascent into clubland aristocracy began when he struck crossover gold with 2004’s glorious ‘Feel The Vibe’. An unstoppably uplifting and instantly memorable track, the original version of ‘Feel The Vibe’ (featuring vocalist Errol Reid) dazzled every corner of clubland, before an overhauled version (with new vocals by Tara McDonald) gate-crashed the UK top 20. 2005’s ‘Watch The Sunrise’ (featuring Steve Edwards) proved to be another unstoppable anthem, as was his 2006 collaboration with fellow Swedish House Mafioso Steve Angello, Supermode’s ‘Tell Me Why’ (released via Ministry Of Sound, it reach #13 in the UK and #3 in the Netherlands). But it was 2007’s rave-referencing ‘I Found U’ (#6 in the UK charts) that really cemented Axwell’s status as a producer who could marry artistic innovation with strong commercial appeal – a rare thing indeed, in any genre of music. Most recently he was one of the forces behind Swedish House Mafia – One (Your Name) featuring Pharell Williams, another top ten UK hit, crashing into the summer charts at #7 and soundtracking every festival, dance event and Ibiza club night.

Steve Angello

The word icon is liberally tossed around the modern music industry. But casually dressed and exceedingly loyal to his vocation, familial House veteran Steve Angello has encapsulated those values with more persuasive vigour than the vast majority of his long serving peers. Never one to hinder under the weight of tribulation, his legacy can be found as comfortably cramming the venues once unfathomable to Electronic Dance Music as it does the Beatport charts with essential new talent. Passion may have seen him pioneer the Stockholm underground, but innovation has seen him join the ranks of luminary mafia man. Where some say that running a business is like riding a rollercoaster, the industrious footsteps of Steve Angello have equated to quite the ride. Producing for Interscope in LA and establishing Size Records in 2003, his hunger for universal success has seen him scale the charts and clubs alike with a refined array of musical gems. With such signature Beatport smashers ‘Knas’, ‘Rave N Roll’ and forthcoming stormer ‘Yeah’ accompanying his infamous Size edits for Junior Sanchez and Tim Mason, Steve’s ability to bring the soulful stylings of prestigious House asset Robyn S back to the global charts in 2009. Add astounding remixes for Pendulum’s ‘The Island’ alongside industry peers Max Vangeli and AN21 and his own cut of Alex Metric’s ‘Open Your Eyes’, his unassailable musical sights have truly made for an intense discography of assorted.

Nervo

Starting out in the mid-2000’s, Australian sisters Mim and Liv Nervo made their name by writing smash singles for artists like Ke$ha and Kylie Minogue, remixing superstars like Katy Perry and Thirty Seconds to Mars, and joining forces with David Guetta to co-write his Grammy-winning “When Love Takes Over.” They quickly built upon that experience by releasing music under their own name, NERVO, alongside some of the biggest producers today including Afrojack, Steve Aoki and Nicky Romero, while tearing through arenas across North America on the Britney Spears/Nicki Minaj Femme Fatale tour. Now, one of the most sought after acts in dance music, NERVO, can be found balancing their rigorous worldwide touring schedule while working on their debut album that soaks deadly-catchy melody into the loud, dirty beats that set apart their brand of progressive and electro-house.

DjFresh

Über-producer, DJ, record label owner and visionary Dan Stein (aka DJ Fresh) has been one of the driving forces behind the success of drum ’n bass for years. Described at one point as ‘a tornado rolling across the horizon’, he’s been a creative whirlwind racing across the top of the scene for over a decade. DJ Fresh collaborates with many artists from the drum ’n bass family and far beyond. The album he released last year was aptly titled ‘Nextlevelism’. Tracks like ‘Louder’, ‘Hot Right Now’ and ‘The Power’ were embraced by last summer’s collective memory, an achievement that DJ Fresh looks forward to repeating in 2013.

Nero

There is more than one artist with this name: 1. Dubstep and Drum and Bass producers from UK. 2. Rap artist from New York, USA. 3. Hardcore Techno alias of Alec Empire 4. Alternative Rock band From Ireland. 5. A Japanese singer who posts his covers on Nico Nico Douga. 1. Nero say that they're best known for 'Ragga Puffin', but they're possibly being a bit modest here (as they are almost certainly being ironic when they say that the future of DJing is Paris Hilton).
