    If you've not been to Forward in Leeds yet, Friday 7th October could be the first of many as Kyau & Albert fly into Leeds for a rare appearance to celebrate their 15 year landmark in the dance music industry. Supporting guests come in the form of Armada's remix king, Sebastian Brandt and Sony Music's exclusive artist San.

    Kyau & Albert - Celebrating 15 Years -

    Ralph Kyau and Steven Moebius, better known as Kyau & Albert, celebrate 15 years in the business with countless hits including "Made Of Sun", "Velvet Morning", "Walk Down", "Kiksu", Are You Fine?, Always A Fool, Megashira and I Love You. And for those that didn't know, all male vocals come from Steven Moebius Albert himself. In 1997 K&A founded their record label Euphonic. With world exclusive artists like Ronski Speed, Stoneface & Terminal, Marc Marberg, Cressida, Sebastian Sand and Mirco de Govia, the label is seen as one of the top brands in the dance industry today.

    The successful K&A debut artist album "Here We Are Now" was released on 3 continents. They also remixed some of the biggest names in club land like Paul van Dyk, Armin van Buuren, Kosheen, Gabriel & Dresden, Cosmic Gate, Bent and so much more. K&As remix of "Jump The Next Train" by Young Parisians became a true classic from the off set.

    Their 2nd artist album "Worldvibe" was released in 2006 and the following year in May 2007 K&A mixed CD1 of the "10 Years Euphonic" compilation. Also in 2007 K&A collaborated with label friend Marc Marberg on the massive "Megashira" as well as releasing their "Always A Fool" and "7Skies " as singles.

    K&A won the prestigious Beatport Music Award; the best selling Trance track in 2008 on Beatport with their remix for the Cressida single "6AM".

    K&A played on main stage in of Trance Energy in Utrecht before releasing a new double single "Orange Bill/Neo Love" together with Marc Marberg in May 2008.

    More remixes followed for Lange "Out of the Sky" and Paul van Dyk "Complicated" and in October 2008 the K&A single "Hide & Seek" was released with a strong club mix. For this single, K&A got a famous International Dance Music Award at the Winter Music Conference 2009 in Miami. They were also nominated as Best breakthrough DJ.

    In Spring 2009 they finished the double single "Hooked on Infinity/Be there 4 U" and released their album "Best Of 2002 - 2009", including all the big K&A hits non-stop in the mix. In July 2009 a new collab together with Marc Marberg was released: "Grrreat".

    2010 they kicked off with their new single and a video clip for "Once In A Life". Kyau & Albert played at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver and for the Formula 1 in Kuala Lumpur. Their remix for Bent As You Fall was played by all the top jocks including Faithless at their Essential Mix on Radio 1. In July the single Anphonic together with Above & Beyond was released followed by their own hit single Painkillers.

    The radio show "Euphonic Sessions with Kyau & Albert" is syndicated on 24 FM stations around the globe and has now over 25,000 podcast subscribers on iTunes.

    Kyau & Albert are listed for the 5th year now in the DJ Mag Top100 ranked at #40. The duo deliver massive, cutting edge DJ sets and their energy behind the decks is just simply infectious. Catching them live is something people wont soon forget!

    Sebastian Brandt -

    Supporting the two German superstars is Sweden's very own Armada remix master, Sebastian Brandt.

    Known for his searing leads and melodic prowess, its no wonder Sebastian is one of the most requested remixers in the Trance scene today. Through the birth of Serenade, and the powerful So Cold, Sebastian has seen his tracks supported by the entire trance elite. His tracks have become a staple identity for Armada for a number of years, so much that Armin van Buuren himself has recruited him to remix his own personal tracks.

    What's more, Armin van Buuren asked him to make the official theme for A State of Trance 450, named 450.

    Sebastian's DJ ability is quite incredible, playing huge gigs such as ASOT 450, Monday Bar, Entrance and Luminosity. His tours of India and Indonesia have spread his prodigious sound across the world, wowing crowds with his energy, and ability to surprise the audience.

    Sebastian's productions and stunning remixes, are featured on the largest and most respected dance labels on the planet including Armada, Ferry Corsten's Flashover Recordings, and Monster Tunes.

    Its difficult to comprehend that this guy carries such a prolific discography, at only the tender age of 22. Sebastian's next step will be of the vocal variety, and boy will it be a great one!

    San -

    And last but not least we'd like to introduce a name that may not sound too familiar to your ears, however you will most certainly have heard his music either on a CD compilation, a radio show, or more than likely in a nightclub. Hailing from the worlds trance capital The Netherlands, DJ San, head honcho at Fektive Records, currently holds a residency at the world renowned Privilege in Ibiza, Trance-Nation in Holland and Elevate in India.

    SAN's productions have graced the turntables and mix CDs of pretty much every top DJ around the globe either under his own name, SAN, or his "Solid Sessions" moniker. His Solid Sessions Janeiro, even made it to the top 10 in 11 countries.

    One of San's ongoing supporters is the worlds most popular DJ Tiesto, who even asked San to do a remix for him! Tiesto has supported all the releases that San did till this date. Especially Insane, Hi Tension and Nothing Remains The Same, that reached the top 5 on Beatport.

    His previous productions have been remixed by big name producers such as Armin van Buuren, Marco V, M.I.K.E., Kyau & Albert, Rui da Silva, James Holden, Lemon 8, and Marc et Claude and has played for some of the biggest dance music organisations in the world such as Creamfields, Sensation, Renaissance, Dancevalley, Ministry of Sound, Mysteryland, Transmission.

    Jamie Walker -

    In little over 18 months, Jamie has come from being virtually an unknown producer on the hard-style circuit, to becoming an absolute power Trance favourite. Signing with Defcon Records, his debut 4-track EP saw all four tracks go in to the top 20 Audiojelly chart. His remix of Defcon Audio's "Lost In You" gained widespread support and spent three weeks in the Audiojelly top 10 and reached number 3! More EP's and releases followed gaining support from his own idols as well as others, including Sean Tyas, John O'Callaghan, Ferry Corsten, Bryan Kearney, Aly & Fila, Manuel le Saux and Akira Kayosa to name just a few. His tracks and remixes have been released on Goodgreef Digital, Kearnage and Nu-Depth as well as his home label, Defcon. Now working in collaboration with none other than Bryan Kearney himself, with Sebastian Brandt on remix duties, there is no stopping him! The future for Jamie is certainly looking very bright.

    Having played at our first "Future Forward" party in July, as well as other events across the country, we wanted to give him the chance to play regularly to a Forward thinking crowd. A crowd which we're sure will appreciate the energy Jamie will bring to the dance floor with his excellent selection of powerful, driving Trance.

    Conny started the mixing vibe at 13 years old and this was due to the acclaimed super-night RETRO, formerly The Angles/Paul Taylor era, having an influence on him via his older brother. He moved on to the huge millennium trance scene, accelerating his passion and love for dance music as a whole.
    As the years have passed since then, his maturity through music genres expanded, to now playing sounds from funky house, progressive house/trance, classic trance and upfront electro as he's now famed for on our main club dance floors.

    In 2006, he entered the local DJ competition in Blackburn at Heaven and Hell... 136 DJs down to one winner... CONNY!! and claimed his first residency in the Hell room. Also in 2008 he entered another DJ competition in southport at BarNoN... 150 DJs down to one winner... again... CONNY!
    Gaining confidence and industry taking notice, he's guested for house hold nights such as Miss Moneypenny's, Just...!, Funk Around, Dirty Disco, Gatecrasher Classics, Wired, Hed Kandi, Pukka Up, Dazed, Nitty Gritty, Dirty Fresh, Riff Raff and venues including Heaven and Hell-Blackburn, The Ritz-Manchester, J2-Bolton, Opium-Accrington, Sankeys-Manchester, Terminal 1-Carlisle, Tivoli-North Wales, BarNoN-Southport, The Underground/Bar RoJo-Burnley and many bars in and around the north west of england... Having completed a 2 year residency at Just...! and 3 years at Dazed he also co-creates Riff Raff to take forward his career and our music direction.

    Conny's next venture is his involvement with super club The Wall, Carlisle. He's secured himself yet another residency and is eager to grace the dance floors in coming months.

    All his achievement and forthcoming glory is taken in loving memory of his father, Vinny Conroy, who sadly passed away when Conny was 18. His Dad's persistence pushed him into his current state of love for DJing and music as a career... taken on board, expect every set to wow!

    Tom Fearnhead

He has played at many nights in and around the North West, including Transfusion, Revival, Sub Sono, Penthouse and Dusk Till Doorn, which was a massive highlight for Tom. Also playing alongside the likes of Adam Sheridan, Rob Tissera, Jordan Suckley and Micky Slim.

    Toms style is all about energy. Whether it be a warm up set, or a fast and furious peak time set, Tom always builds and keeps the energy thumping, taking inspiration from the likes of Bryan Kearney, Simon Patterson and John O’Callaghan. A blend of techno and trance, old and new to keep things interesting, is sure to make Toms set one to watch.

    Stu Patchitt

    With Trance and Hard dance influencing his preferred genre from an early stage, Stu Patchitt delivers lives performances that get the crowd reacting to epic, melodic breakdowns, followed by speaker damaging drops and hooks.
    Stu's portfolio is rapidly expanding as his career progresses.
    Holding residencies across Scotland and running his own club night, Elements in Edinburgh, he has been privileged to play amongst some of the biggest names in the Trance industry, including, Sean Tyas, Jon O'Bir, Ummet Ozcan and many more.
    The passion for trance music has given fantastic opportunities to play at Digital Society in Leeds, and at Jayfest 2010, Aylesbury, not to mention other performances at various venues across the country.
    It's these experiences that have helped influence and fine tune his live acts and music productions.

    Heavily influenced by releases on Enhanced, Discover and Infrasonic, Stu's productive style follows suit by delivering soaring riffs, piano based breakdowns along with interesting percussive breaks.
    Stu Patchitt's 1st release on Dirt Lies Audio, titled Never Forgotten peaked at number 23 in the TID 100 chart.
    Stu Patchitt also hosts a weekly radio show on, aptly named : Trancemission, every Friday, 8-10PM UK time.
