The Hard Dance Icon who is taking the Nation by storm.....
ALEX KIDD (UK)
The career of Alex Kidd reads like the dream wish list of any hard dance DJ. Over the past ten years The Kidd has caused more waves than the most turbulent of tsunamis and he continues his reign today as one of the undisputed leaders of Hard Dance.
With a lifelong obsession for fast and furious music, Alex Kidd is renowned for being one of the true innovators within the hard spectrum. An AK set is more than just your average DJ set. It is an experience and an education in harder music. A constant morphing of style and inspiration means that each set is an elaborate and imaginative onslaught of beats, samples and technical wizardary, all packaged up by one of the most entertaining and engaging performers hard dance has ever seen.
The journey of The Kidd began more than a decade ago in the depths of Manchester, starting working life behind the counter of his local record store. Carving a reputation for himself on the local circuit soon led to him becoming Goodgreef's first ever resident and Label Manager. Combining fresh ideas, inventive music policies and an ever growing loyal following, it wasn't long before both entities were setting the world of harder dance on fire, moulding the future of the scene, and making hard dance history.
Alex Kidd is one of hard dance’s true investors, be it through his own productions, events and performance or through his support and dedication in tomorrow’s stars. This unadulterated passion and energy has been the reason for his success so far, and the reason that he will continue his reign both in and out of the limelight for many years to come.
The german dynamic duo responsible for last years massive hit "Don't Give A Fuck" none other than....
Stoneface & Terminal are two dynamic German producers and Djs with a long list of releases and remixes under various names on a number of high profile labels. Their productions are hammered by the likes of Paul van Dyk, Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten and Markus Schulz. In 2004 Henry & Matthias founded their label Electric Department Records and brought up tracks like Merkur, Sidewinder or Summerscape/Miami. Paul van Dyk chose Merkur for his exclusive DJMAG Mix-CD. After 4 releases on their own label, Henry & Matthias signed to one of the worlds leading trance-labels Euphonic and teamed up with their label mate Ronski Speed to create "Incognition/Drowning Sunlight". Incognition was played by almost every DJ in the world and became one of the biggest Club-Hits in 2005. In 2006 "Venus" followed and was chosen by Armin van Buuren for his "A State of Trance" CD-Compilation + Vinyl-Sampler. Also in 2006 the brilliant Earth EP was released and no one less than Giuseppe Ottaviani made a remix of Supernature. As remixers, Stoneface & Terminal are also highly in demand. They made remixes for Above & Beyond, Nu Nrg on Paul van Dyk's Vandit Label,Gareth Emery, Kyau & Albert on Euphonic, 4 Strings, Kuffdam & Plant or together with Ronski Speed for Darren Tates DT8 Project to name a few. As DJs, Stoneface & Terminal are famed for their high-energy edged style. With the power of their DJ-sets they have the makings to fascinate and the crowd all around the world. They played gigs in the USA, Malaysia, East Europe, UK, Sweden, Canada, Mexico and Australia and its always a great experience to see these two best friends perform behind the decks. In June of 2007 Stoneface & Terminal released their first artist album called Wide Range. On this Album Henry & Matthias will show you their multifaceted passion to electronic music. For three tracks they worked together with great singers like Sylvia Brandse, Denise Rivera (both in cooperation with Raz Nitzan & Adrian Broekhuyse) & Alexander Perls whose dramatic and passionate vocals add a fine polish to the package. Further Stoneface & Terminal made special versions of their known tracks like Another Day, Super Nature or Drowning Sunlight. The musical style varies between relaxing tunes, vocal based songs and energy loaded club tracks. As the name says, this album contains a -wide range- of electronic music. In August of 2007 Stoneface & Terminal compiled and mixed Vol.5 of the known US-Compilation -This is Trance- on Water Music Records.
Is there a CD wallet in the land which doesn’t have one of Will Bailey’s bullets stashed away? Some of the most influential DJ/producers around the world are currently trumpeting Will’s impressive production skills, and dance floors from London to L.A have been destroyed by his explosive sets - featuring grimy electro house, techno touches and surprise drops of cross-genre killer tracks.
Re-inventing himself more times than Madonna, Will’s many aliases (including the in-your-face Twocker, techno beast Rudi Stakker and fidget force Bass Weazal) have been causing a ruckus on the airwaves with over 30 recent Radio 1 plays alone. Props have been coming in thick and fast from across the DJ spectrum: Pete Tong, Armand Van Helden, Wolfgang Gartner, Judge Jules and Fatboy Slim have all recognized Will Bailey’s talents in 2009, while Galaxy Radio kingpin Andi Durrant
described Will’s productions as “proper get-out-of-jail tracks.”
A regular player in the top of the beatport charts with over 100 releases to date, Will’s recent massive ‘Hit The Club’ banger loomed large in all credible bassbins at the end of last year, receiving heavy radio support from Kissy Sell Out, Pete Tong and Judge Jules, while a long list of DJs including Crookers, mstrkrft and Paul Oakenfold gave it considerable club rotation.
Bass Weazel’s catalogue, included ‘Kill The Fox’, ‘Break The Bomb’ and ‘Loco Selector’ followed suit, scoring high on the playlists for specialist shows. Bass Weazal’s ‘Jungle Massive’ has also recently appeared on the Plump DJs’ mix for Global Underground.
With a natural ear for heavy hitters, it was clear that the Birmingham-based studio whizz would find success with his own label Simma. With a collaboration between himself and Hot Mouth (‘Underwear Funk’) and Aniki and Bling Fingah released in the autumn of 2009 and more in the pipeline, plus a series of crazy Simma parties held in mystery locations, it looks as if Simma’s already boiling over...
Recently crowned resident for the world famous clubbing institution Gatecrasher,Will has a presence that’s hard to ignore. Delivering sets which get straight to the point, he has audiences eating out of his hand before the first mix. With a huge U.S fan base, he has already conquered the Burning Man Festival in the Nevada desert,the Electric Daisy Carnival, Kosmic and Atlantis festivals in L.A plus a string of gigs in Chicago, Buffalo, Seattle, Denver, San Francisco to name a few. While In the UK, Will has smashed all the best parties: Sankeys in Manchester, G, The Gallery at Ministry of Sound and Stealth in Nottingham Matter in London are just some of the venues that have witnessed the full force of the Will Bailey experience!
