Kyau & Albert - Celebrating 15 Years - www.kyauandalbert.com
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 - http://www.myspace.com/sebastianbrandt
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 - http://www.djsan.com/
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 - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jamie-...28068543930177
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.
