Biography

In 2011, Max Chapman burst onto the underground house scene when his first record was supported by Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1. In 2018, his hard work since that day was recognized at the DJ Awards when he won the ‘Breakthrough’ category following seven years of hard graft and success both as a producer and as a touring DJ. Known for his flawless productions and an infectious personality that has seen him become an industry favourite, Max Chapman is on the cusp of global success and ready to take his career to the next level.

In 2016, Max’s track ‘Body Jack’ on elrow climbed the Beatport Tech House reaching the top spot after just 10 days of being released. It then went on to claim the overall number 1 across all genres a few days later. His second Beatport #1 followed in 2017 with ‘La Fiesta’ which was released on Jamie Jones’ Hot Creations imprint – a milestone in any DJ’s career and a seal of approval that set up successful releases on FFRR, Virgin EMI, Relief, Solá, Toolroom, NONSTOP and more. Not only a master of club weapons, his debut album ‘Catch Me If You Can’ on MadTech was given a 9/10 from Mixmag and DJ Mag, as well as hitting number 10 in the Beatport chart.

The last 18 months have seen Max hit shows and tours across Europe, North America, South America and Canada at venues and events like Goldrush Festival, CRSSD Festival, Parklife, Hideout, Snowboxx and Fabric. This summer, his Ibiza shows included a debut at DC10 for Paradise as well as shows with Elrow and ABODE at Amnesia, Solardo Sounds at Hi, and Cuckoo Land at Ibiza Rocks. In 2016 he ticked a huge industry box with a set at Lost Beach club in Ecuador, as part of the Boiler Room network, which was the first ever Boiler Room in Ecuador and was streamed worldwide to thousands of people.

Alongside his own DJ career, Max runs his label, Resonance Records. Utilising his resources, the label has since blossomed into a respected platform for the finest underground house music which has seen releases from the likes of CamelPhat, Solardo, wAFF, Richy Ahmed, Detlef, Mark Jenkyns, George Smeddles and more.

With so much happening for the rising talent right now, it’s easy to see why people like Adam Beyer, Riva Starr, Steve Lawler, Jamie Jones, Richy Ahmed, Hot Since 82, Loco Dice, Matthias Tanzmann, Pete Tong, Nic Fanculli and many more of the biggest names in the business are supporting everything Max Chapman does.

Hector Couto

NETWORK

Biography

Often referred to as one of the most consistently pioneering artists of his generation, the Tenerife bred DJ/Producer comes with an impressively commendable back-story. In an industry well known for overnight success due to monopolisation and consumer- driven demands, Hector is an outstanding example of what playing the long game and staying true to yourself can get you if you put your heart and soul into it.


Hector was one of, if not the first artist from the Canary Islands to make a considerable impact on the evolution of the modern Tech House sound which is globally fashioned at the forefront of electronic dance music. Tenerife and the surrounding areas have since gone on to export a strong flow of artists that emulate a similar sort of acoustic signature, something that many people believe Hector is directly responsible for. Carving a specific sound and inspiring an entire wave of artists, an achievement that his industry peers not only respect him for but something they have always championed him for, too.


Not only is Hector clearly inspiring, but he is also extremely decorated in terms of high profile attachments of his name. He has released on pretty much every big House and Tech House label in the industry over the last half a decade and beyond. Something that he has done time and time again without conforming to recent label trends or sound fads. Each time, being showcased for his standout sound and musical vibe, another exemplary trait for an artist that many struggle to accurately master throughout their respective careers.


The extent of Hector’s ever-growing exhibition of an artist comes seeming without any weaknesses. Not only has he appeared on pretty much benchmark label in the industry (sometimes on several occasions), he has also been a frequent fixture on artist schedules with the biggest event brands on the planet. The likes of Sankeys, ElRow, ADE, BPM, Music On, Solid Grooves and many more being regular bookers and believers of Hector’s raw, constantly developing talent.


To put it simply, at many different levels, Hector is a household name in electronic dance music. From a release catalogue that most aspiring artists can only dream of, to an endless stream of industry recognised and internationally respected DJ awards, to working with some of his idols and favourite artists in the industry, to being consistently at the forefront as a globally touring performing artist. You could ask what is left to do in the career of someone that seems like they’ve done it all already? The answer is simple, in remembering that he fell in love with the music and that’s all it has ever been about, continuing to bring his talent to the masses and share his passion for amazing music with the rest of the world.

Some of Hector Couto’s favourite clubs he performed:

ATFC

Biography

Anyone who maintains a profile at the level and length of time Aydin has is truly world class. He has an ability to adapt his style, to stay relevant without compromising his sound. A true house don!
  Mark KnightToolroom.

ATFC’s picture hangs in the House Music Hall of Fame. OK, so it’s on a rusty nail in the toilet under the stairs at the end of the hall, but the point is that it’s there; a proud testament to one man’s ability to both devastate dance-floors with his explosive, peak-time sets and deliver sickeningly slick productions at an awe-inspiring rate.

This heavyweight of House was born to Anglo-Turkish parents who immediately named him Aydin Hasirci; Ottoman Turkish for “He who blends 2 records skilfully, is a purveyor of slammin’ yet soulful house music whilst simultaneously being a master at whipping up a delicious Spaghetti Carbonara”. Longwinded yes, aspirational most certainly but also quite a burden to lay on a newborn baby. Happily though the young Aydin blossomed into exactly what his parents had prophesised and now occupies a unique position within the occasionally rich and often beautiful world of dance music.
I’ve been playing Aydin’s tracks for a long time and he never disappoints! He’s constantly evolving and giving sure fire dance floor anthems as well as crossover hits. On top of that, he’s a nice bloke too!
Roger Sanchez
The complications surrounding the young Aydin’s name didn’t end here though. Deciding he needed a more instantly recognisable moniker to carry him through what was destined to be a lengthy embrace of the 4/4 beat, the juggernaught known as Aydin the Funki Chile – or more succinctly ATFC – was set into motion.
Several years, some children, a shed-load of singles and more than a few adoring fans later – 80% of which are, naturally, female – ATFC is one of those rare things within the dance music community; an established, successful name the mention of which doesn’t have the haters screaming ‘Sell out!’ from the rooftops or start to maliciously plot his downfall. Three UK Top 40 hits, Beatport and Traxsource No.1’s and Pete Tong describing one of your tracks as “verging on genius” do not come without substance to back-up the unquestionable style, although the last in this list can allegedly be encouraged with a few glasses of Babysham and a back massage. In fact, the Radio 1 selector must have been heavy plied with both these luxuries, as in January ’09 ATFC was handed the keys to world’s biggest stage with his very own essential mix, resulting in raised fists and weak knees around the world.
Don’t think for one second however that he’s just some kind of studio geek, locked away from the outside world, listening to the same four bars of music thousands of times before spewing forth an eruption of magma-hot house music. Ok, he is like that, but he’s also pretty comfortable behind the digital ones and twos, belting out tunes to thousands of smiling faces and stomping feet. In his time he’s rocked Global Gathering UK, Dance Valley, Holland, Zoukfest, Kuala Lumpur and Summadayze Australia, not to mention regularly dropping bombs at Pacha, Ibiza; no mean feat when you consider the airspace above Ibiza Town is deemed a no-fly-zone for all but the most dashing pilots.

ATFC does dance music how I like it the best. Always classy, with a good punch, yet soulful. He´s one of the only guys nowadays who can handle a good vocal… I´m a fan! 
Mousse T

I’ve been playing Aydin’s tracks for a long time and he never disappoints! He’s constantly evolving and giving sure fire dance floor anthems as well as crossover hits. On top of that, he\’s a nice bloke too! 
Roger Sanchez

Aydin is the kind of guy who stays true and genuine to his own sound and never tries to follow a trend or search for fake fame or success. The kind who is fighting for his own strong conviction. A real house music lover 
Bob Sinclar

I’ve played Aydin’s records for the last 15 years. He always has the groove and delivers the bombs! Plus he’s a top bloke. 
Nic Fanciulli

When we started The Cube Guys project, ATFC was one of world class producers in terms of quality and sound. When we finally met personally we realized that he’s a real Old Skool super funny guy with a superb upfront vision of what true House Music is! 
The Cube Guys

ATFC is not a football team, in fact it’s one man who stands alone in his quest for keeping the funk alive & kickin and he’s been doing so for over a decade. He is Aydin The Funki Chile! 
Seamus Haji, Big Love.

ATFC is not a football team, in fact it’s one man who stands alone in his quest for keeping the funk alive & kickin and he’s been doing so for over a decade. He is Aydin The Funki Chile!

I was fan of  ATFC before I met him so when we had the chance to work together it was amazing. We are now working on more productions that I can´t wait to finish! Recently, Aydin used my talent when he had a hip replacement so now that he is good, he wants to kick my ass…mothafucker

Biography

Supernova are Emiliano Nencioni and Giacomo Godi; an Italian DJ and production duo that have over the last decade made the transition from rising stars to established international talent and are now recognised as artists and performers of enviable stature.
Both Emiliano and Giacomo are classically trained musicians, something they believe has set their approach to electronic music apart from many of their peers, granting them the technical abilities and theoretical know-how to produce the music they want without restriction.

Taking their lead from the music of their youth – everything from Chicago house, acid house, hip-hop, funk and acid jazz – they achieved their first notable success in 2007 when Sony BMG released their debut album ‘Downtown Underground, which included collaborations from the likes of GrandMaster and Melle Mel).

In 2009 they started their own label Lapsus Music that is now considered one of the most interesting project inside the underground independent labels world scene with support from many big names and showcases across the world and now they have added 2 more new labels to their company: Downtown Underground and Blackboard.

Their probably biggest hit comes in 2010 with “Beat Me Back” the collaboration with Detroit techno master Kevin Saunderson. Following this and many other big releases, the duo have been asked to remix some of the biggest classics of the House Music such as Frankie Knuckles “The Whistle Song”, Kerri Chandler “Bar A Thym”, Jakatta “American Dream” and Romanthony “What Price Love” just to name a few.

One of the more significant relationships of recent years has been Supernova’s continuing affiliation with house giant Defected Records. Defected has released a number of the duo’s productions including remixes of seminal records ‘Can You Feel It’ and ‘Strings of Life’ as well as three Eps. 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of Supernova and the duo is asked to mix one third of the long-running and acclaimed Defected In The House Miami compilation series.
The Italian duo has recently released tracks on Get Physical Music, 8Bit, Mother Recordings, Elrow Music, Kling Klong, Stereo Productions, Toolroom, King Street Sounds and Nervous Records just to name a few..

“We believe in this rule: ‘work hard, hard, hard with a smile on your face always trying to do something better than the day before’. Following this rule has made us growing up step by step overcoming the difficult moments and getting the best possible results”.
For Supernova, music is their life, their language and a huge part of their relationship with others people. “We believe that we have a lot to say in terms of music and that our journey is just at the beginning. The only way to complete this journey is to do a lot of good music; This is our mission!”

Biography

Hood Rich knows how to make you dance.

DJ, producer and clubland hero Jake Reid curates good times and high vibes every way he can. As a selector, he’s burned the dance floors of Elsewhere, TBC, World Bar, Groove In The Moo and supported the likes of Kill Frenzy, MK and Cut Snake at shows. As the curator of forward-thinking North Queensland club Flinders Social, he’s booked Australia’s biggest names and put together the top end’s best parties. Now, he’s marking his ground as a producer.

His remixes for Kyle Watson, DJ Zinc and Airwolf have been played by names as big as Oliver Heldens, Anna Lunoe and the Dirtybird crew, been released through cult labels like Sweat It Out & Medium Rare Recordings and had love on Australia’s most in touch radio shows. He’s even been tapped for mixes on Triple J and FBi.

His originals have started out just strong: Hood Rich’s first club jam No Type hit #1 on the Beatport house charts as part of ‘The Banquet’, while his debut single – which he describes as a “combination of garage, bass and tech house all thrown in together” – is due to arrive in early 2017 via MRR. Also in the pipeline is a remix for dance titan Tommy Trash & A-Trak on the legendary Fools Gold Records!

For Hood Rich, the vision is to create music that works as well on a dancefloor as it does through headphones. “I want my music to be something you can listen to at home, or something you can listen to over pre-drinks, or something you can play at an after-party,” he says. “I like having elements of both: it needs to be interesting enough to listen to at home, but thumping enough that it can melt faces in the club.”

Some of Hood Rich’s favorite clubs he performed:

  • Chinese Laundry – Sydney
  • Electric Circus – Australia
  • Impala – Auckland New Zealand
  • The Met – Brisbane
  • Prohibition – Brisbane

Biography

DJ RAE proves to be one of the few females in the house music scene with such a dynamic career, carving out her unique path as a DJ, Singer, Songwriter and Producer. Starting her career with Defected Records, her first self-penned release ‘Can’t Stop’ with Kings of Tomorrow became a house anthem and Rae’s multifaceted talent lead to her fast becoming an artist in demand.

Many confident productions followed, landing Rae an MTV #1 dance chart position and a UK Top 20 hit. Rae went on to compile and mix the prestigious Defected in the House compilation and headline global tours and festivals, such as Ministry of Sound, Pacha, Together, and held summer and winter Ibiza residencies at Pacha, Ushuaia and Lio.

With many consecutive years at Amsterdam Dance Event and the Miami Winter Music Conference with Defected, Undr The Radr, and Pacha establishing herself as a respected artist with house music’s most influential names, playing alongside Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry, Kevin Saunderson, Erick Morillo and MK, Rae continues to champion the way for females in the dance world. From running her own label RATED and representing at this year’s Brighton Music Conference, to a full UK tour with the Hacienda Classical, Rae is one of the most prominent female artists in the game.

A striking artist and an undeniably skilled DJ who has worked from her roots
of vinyl with a passion for selection and mixing, Rae has developed her craft with unique vocal performance which has become her USP.

Rarely out of the studio, delivering a stream of clubland anthems which stand the test of time, such as ‘Hide U’ with Sandy Rivera and the huge Top 20 release ‘Take Me Away’ with DJ S.K.T.
Rae’s definitive sound resonates through the genres, her voice has a unique quality that can transport you to the beginnings of house music, and yet remains fresh and relevant.

With solo productions and collaborations Rae has released on many of the biggest dance labels like Toolroom, Spinnin’ and Armada, also majors Sony, Atlantic and Columbia with chart success across the dance charts and the UK official charts.

Her recent productions continue to build momentum with fresh collaborations ‘Reachin’ with Lupe Fuentes on In The Loop; The ‘Good Times’ EP with Deepshakerz on Toolroom; ‘Get Me Down’ with ATFC & Duane Harden on Armada; ‘Make Me Better’ with Marc Vedo on Milk & Sugar, ‘I Just Wanna’ with Vanilla Ace on New State, and ‘Let Me Try’ with Kry Wolf on Toolroom.

In 2017, DJ RAE launched her own label, RATED. Her singles ‘My Soul’, ‘Surrender’ and ‘Crazy’ – an exhilarating reworking of the classic GoldTrix ft Andrea Brown ‘It’s Love (Trippin)’ with long-term collaborator Sandy Rivera – plus Kamereon’s ‘Watch You’, have set a benchmark for great things to come and won support from such leading selectors and tastemakers as Mark Knight, Marco Carola, Luciano, MistaJam, Crookers, and Horse Meat Disco.

Signed to Ultra Music Publishing as Rae Hall, she is a sought after topline writer, collaborating and penning songs for major artists across the genres. Recent features include ‘Lose Myself’ from Kharfi; ‘You & Me’ with Ryan Blyth & Scrufizzer; ‘Sundown/Loving Me’ with KC Lights on Nothing Else Matters; ‘Feel My Love’ with Jack Wins on AFTR HRS.

Biography

This man has had Beyonce 3 times. That’s right; big dick Wongo from down unda’ has had the Queen Bey in and around his mouth on three separate official remixes for Sony. This righteous lad has spent over a decade between the bright screens perfecting the boops and womps that tickle and stimulate your ear canals.

We are mad privileged to have sir Wongo as one of the absolute bawses behind the Box of Cats label. Real recognize real as Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, Billy Kenny, Martin Solveig, Riva Starr, Joris Voorn, Golf Clap, and Rudimental all big up the container of cantankerous felines on a regular basis. Bring it back one more time, as real recognize real forreal; Wongo has written tracks alongside the talents of Billy Kenny, Bot, Sinden, and Jace Mek to name just a few off the top of the dome.

Only recently have the States had the pleasure of his weirdness with his first U.S. tour hitting landfall over New Year’s Eve 2017. It’s safe to say it won’t be the last time that mothers across the country should be hiding their daughters from his cranberry and vodka scented allure.

If it’s not his tunes, his boyish charm, or penchant for taking off his clothes on stage that grab ya, then it must be his moves. Yes, the man currently posted up on the Gold Coast is a 5 time breakdancing/bboying champion in the land of wallabies and surf. He toured all over the world on three separate occasions spinning on his fucking head solely for the purpose of droppin jaws and panties alike.

The man is a master of all genres and dancefloors so don’t expect any Wongo set to sound like any other. This is why our friend who prefers to spend his life 5AM-9PM in the studio instead of a nightclub is a can’t miss see whenever you get lucky enough for him to grace your local shithole. However, if you can convince the antisocial socialite to have 1 drink with you, 1 becomes 10 faster than you can say “cunt” and a night out with Wongo becomes just as memorable as the wild diversity of amazing tunes he has floating around the airwaves.

Shit, if you don’t want to dance with him after all that, then he doesn’t wanna dance with you neither. Ya cunt.

Some of Wongo’s favorite clubs he performed:

  • EDC Las Vegas Festival (United States)
  • Splendour In The Grass Festival (Byron Bay)
  • Groove In The Moo Festival (Australia)
  • Countdown Festival (California),
  • Chinese Laundry (Sydney)
  • The Met (Brisbane)

Biography

In the world of electronic dance music, the term “Pioneer” is not gained easily. It is one you have to earn through years of breaking boundaries and taking chances with your work and skills. More specifically, in the Bangkok electronic music industry, there is a select group of artists who can rightfully put their name alongside such a tag, and one person who can carry such an accolade is Mikey Mike.

With a career stretching over 20 years as one of Thailand’s most respected names in electronic music and clubbing, Mikey is highly regarded as the driving force behind the techhouse sound that today’s Bangkok club scene is built on.

His career has seen him play to up for it crowds across the globe at some of the world’s most famous nightclubs. From holding residencies in Bangkok’s most iconic clubs and various hot spots around the globe such as the famous Bed Supperclub and Narcissus, Baby’s at the Hard Rock Hotel, Las Vegas and Decibel Club in San Francisco– this year sees him holding down new residencies at two of Bangkok’s most important house and techno clubs, Sing Sing Theater, Levels and C’est La Vie. Add to that list his numerous guest appearances in Bali Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Switzerland and throughout the globe. It’s clear to see that Mikey Mike is a world-class powerhouse DJ and artist.

Inspired by the sounds of his tough-talking DJ sets, his sound has been rejuvenated of late by deep house, house and techno. Have a listen to his DJ mixes where loops, FX and samples are intricately laced with exceptional accuracy or his studio tracks where he’s known to experiment with sounds and compositions for days on end, this exploration of deeper, darker sounds seems a logical and natural progression.

Like most DJs, Mikey had a pivotal moment that catapulted him into professional DJing…. While attending a 5000 + event at an outdoor rave with headliners Altern 8, Kevin Saunderson and Moby held just outside Los Angeles in 1991 with his friend and mentor Markem X, one of the local DJs booked to play didn’t show up. The promoter in a panic needed a replacement on the spot. Markem pointed to Mikey and said, “He has his records, he can play!” Just like that, Mikey was then asked to perform for the very first time in front of a huge crowd with the extra-added pressure of being the last DJ to perform before Moby takes the stage. This was indeed a “trial by fire” and Mikey quickly ran to grab his records and make it back to the main stage in time for a 1-hour opening set for Moby.

As Mikey puts it, “I can’t even remember playing my first record, I was so full of adrenaline and sweat was pouring over my eyes, but somehow, I made it through…. the crowd was going crazy and when I finally saw Moby come on stage below me, he gave me the “thumbs up” to fade out my music…I was in another world…It was insane!”

Since that time, Mikey has gone on to play around the world with some of the biggest names in the business from My Digital Enemy, Calvin Harris, Derrick May, Lee Burridge, Danny Howells, Derrick Carter, Jimmy Van M, Pablo Ceballos, Bob Sinclar, Martin Solveig, DJ Garth, Doc Martin, Terry Francis, Diesel from X-Press2, M.A.N.D.Y., Paul Oakenfold, Roger Sanchez, Judge Jules, Sven Vath and many more.

He has completed remixes for Hardcore Lounge and Farrad and is currently working on his own original productions which have been released through top UK House label Zulu Records under the production name of “FREQS” with his studio partner and collaborator DJ Nudisko. You can also find him mixing DJ compilations for world famous brands such as In Bed with Space among others.

Today, Mikey Mike is synonymous with the cutting edge of the electronic dance music scene. As one of the world’s hardest working DJs and producers, he is a local legend in the Bangkok underground dance music movement and is constantly pushing himself to take his skills to the next level.

Some of Mikly Mike’s top clubs he performed:

  • Zouk – Singapore
  • Decibel – San Francisco

As a DJ-Artist Sugarstarr started his career back in the late 80s already, when the Housemusic-Era was born and blowing up globally. Since that time he’s infected by the energy this type of sound emits. His style was always versatile and freakish, but mainly finely balanced between Nu Disco, Vocal-, Deep-, and Tech- Housemusic. Sometimes peaktime-driven, the other times more classic and slightly minimal. But always funky, housish and soulful. Just to fulfill his duty as an ambassador of stylish dance-floor-pleasing. And the ladies – they still love it.

As a producer and composer Sugarstarr also seem to have a run at the moment. One of his biggest single- releases “Hey Sunshine”, recently out on Enormous Tunes, was one of the most played Ibiza’s anthems, as well as #1 in the Beatport-House-Charts for more than 8 weeks in a row. Currently the track is ranked in the Top 15 of the Best-Selling-Tunes on Beatport of all time (!!!). And – „Hey Sunshine“ was – since it’s release – highly supported by colleagues such as Avicii, Oliver Heldens, Claptone, Mousse T, Fedde Le Grand, Sonny Fodera, EDX and many many more. A classy sing-along track with that unique vocal, that stucks in your head from the first second on.

During the last 15 years the Hamburg (Germany) born Sugarstarr became an in-demand producer for several major projects, that resulted in the release of massive club-hits on labels such as Spinnin’, Ministry Of Sound, Positiva, Defected, Universal, Subliminal, One Love, Subliminal, Southern Fried, Toolroom etc. Especially along with his studio-partner, as the one half of the duo Syke’n’Sugarstarr. Between 1998 and 2012 these two created massive tunes such as “Ticket 2 Ride”, “Are You Watching Me”, „Danz“, „My Belief“ or „Like That Sound“.

Not to forget – one of the biggest coups out of their studios – the stunning team-up with the legendary CeCe Rogers, to re-present “No Love Lost” all over again. This tune has become a worldwide anthem getting on heavy rotation on the radios and was the Essential New Tune in Pete Tong’s Show for three times. Beside his own projects Sugarstarr was repeatedly involved in the release and production also for/with other artists. This includes releases such as “Like This Like That” (SESA feat. Sharon Phillips; Positiva Rec., UK), “So Many Times” (Gadjo ft. Alexandra Prince) or one of the best-ever-selling Dance-Record in Germany: “For You”, (Disco Boys feat. Manfred Mann’s Earthband), which recently gained Double-Platinum-Status and cemented his reputation as a part of this premier producer-team.

Also worth to mention is Sugarstarr’s 2014 release with Goh that featured Redman & Method Man (Wu- Tang Clan) in a different way. The track called „I Used To Be“ sat well on the No. 1 position on Beatport for six (!) weeks in a row. This newly created style combined Nu Disco with Rap & Hip Hop elements, and is still played out by many big names in the DJ-scene.

But – the most appealing aspect of Sugarstarr, who’s now also signed to Spinnin’ Deep, is just how fresh he sounds. Both with his productions and his DJ’ing, which, as anyone who has seen him behind the decks will know, is as diverse and experimental as his studio work. As a DJ he has been touring massively for the last 18 years, with club-gigs and festivals all over the globe. From NYC to Sydney. From Bogota to Moscow. From Miami back to Europe. The music he plays out can easily be described as Funky-Tech-Housemusic- With-Vocals-And-Soul, focussed to rock the audiences with his groovy sets. And that’s exactly what the world needs right now.

  • Paradise Club – Mykonos, GR

Biography Ciro, this is his real name, using the Black Legend pseudonym, conceived, produced and released in 1999 on Time/Rise Records, the single “You See The Trouble With Me”, that in no time turned into a self growing success. In June 2000, after getting licensed almost in every country of the world, Black Legend reaches the n°1 spot of the UK’s official singles sales chart, selling about 2 million copies worldwide of the single alone gaining a collection of gold and platinum discs and, of course, becoming one of the new millenium disco & house classics and one of the all times Ibiza’s anthems.
He was already an internationally renowned and respected DJ and producer way before the Black Legend success that started in 2000.

In more than one occasion his remix became the main version that entered the charts worldwide, like for “Shimmy Shake” by 740 Boyz (Warner) back in 1994 or for “Another Day In Paradise” (WEA) in 2001. No wonder then if his works are often featured on specialized top radio shows (like Pete Tong’s BBC Radio1 Essential Mix) and on the “most wanted” worldwide charts and top DJs playlists.
