Armin van Buuren
Armin van Buuren has been named number one DJ in the world in the prestigious DJ MAG Top 100 poll four times in a row. This year he won seven prices at the IDMA awards 2011, so he can officially be named as a winner!
As his role as head of the Subliminal label, Erick Morillo will celebrate his 10th anniversary of his label’s experience at Pacha Ibiza during the summer of 2011! Now he is bringing his hot house music exclusively to Norway!
Steve Lawler started as a small-scale organizer of successful illegal raves in the UK in the early days of house music, his star quickly rose to fame by high-profile residencies and gained his nickname as “King Of Space”, for his legendary marathon sets at the Space in Ibiza.
Eric Prydz has a packed musical agenda and an unprecedented ability to combine commercial success (3 times Top 2 UK hit singles and the fastest selling release ever on cult download store Beatport), has allowed him to achieve worldwide famous with his integrity intact. This dance hero even got nominated for a Grammy Award!
Adam Beyer has become synonymous with the techno sound of Sweden, which has quite literally shaken the world since the mid-nineties. From the driving percussive force of his Drumcode label to the more open electronic miasma on his current Truesoul and Mad Eye imprints, Beyer remains one of the biggest and a very influential producer/DJ
Patrick Bodmer & Phillip Jung have carved out a unique niche for themselves in electronic music off the back of excellent productions, in-demand remixes, top-notch mixing skills, and a knack for signing some of the best electronic producers alongside their friends DJ T and Booka Shade for their label Get Physical Music, and it’s a story that has been 20 years in the making!
Dennis Ferrer’s New Jersey house music imprint Objektivity carries the torch for house music – continuing that vibe in a way that reflects the original spirit without being retrograde. Ferrer has been riding high on a consistent stream of praise from fans and others alike. From a Grammy nomination for his remix of Dido to his crossover hit of 2010 “Hey Hey” to his alternative vocal track of 2011, “The Red Room”, Ferrer has a magic touch.
Dr Lektroluv is a Belgium DJ who has gained his success with his green mask, his sky-high phone bill and his alias The Man With The Green Mask. He is also running his successful label Lektroluv Records.
Nils is a veteran of the global house music scene at the relatively young age of 29, having been one of the youngest ever artists to deliver an Essential Mix for Pete Tong’s legendary BBC Radio show as well as an enviable DJ diary.
