Since Madrid and Barcelona and the island of Ibiza have taken their place among the world’s top nightclubbing destinations, Spain has become an incubator for international DJs and party producers. Standing tall among an impressive crop that includes one of the top DJ collectives, Chus & Ceballos, Steven Redant’s roots are Belgian, but it was his adopted home of Barcelona where he shot to stardom.
Redant first attracted notice hosting a popular house music radio program. Privilege, an Ibiza-style megaclub, offered him a summer residency. Word soon spread throughout Europe, and Redant was off to Paris’ major gay disco, Queen, and the La Demence parties in his native Brussels, where he’s still a resident DJ.
Redant already has 14 Billboard top dance spots to his credit for artists including Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Alexis Jordan and Nelly Furtado. His latest, Katy Perry’s anthemic “Roar,” has already become a club staple and another top seller.
As one half of the producing duo Bent Collective, Redant and Danny Verde were invited by Lady Gaga to do the official remix of “Applause,” as well as working with two musical titans, Cyndi Lauper and Melissa Etheridge: Lauper to remix “Time After Time” for a 30th anniversary reissue of She’s So Unusual; Etheridge the official club mix of her anthem of support to LGBT Russians, “Uprising of Love."
Redant has played major gigs at Pride celebrations everywhere from Paris and Berlin to Mexico City, Shanghai and Singapore. He’s headlined major gay events such as Sydney Mardi Gras, Berlin’s Hustlaball, Vienna’s Life Ball and Montreal’s Black & Blue. He was invited to perform at Miami’s Winter Music Conference, a singular honor for any DJ. Anyone who can cite clubs like Love Dance in Istanbul, Jump in Taipei and Beijing's Red Ant truly understands that music is the international language. Especially when underscored with a driving backbeat.
There are few sounds on the DJ circuit today as fresh and innovative as those of DrewG. Based in San Diego, but constantly being heard out on the road, this prolific DJ and music producer continues to push dance floors to the limit in clubs both in the U.S. and abroad.
Sonic boundaries mean nothing to DrewG – he breaks them week in and week out — thriving on the unexpected and never ceasing to surprise. Hard kicks and dark electro drops — set to both new vocals and classics — are common trademarks. DrewG flows in and out of tracks flawlessly and fans never see what might be coming.
DrewG’s production work is no stranger to the top of the Billboard Club Charts. Drew and Brian Cua together have procured official remixes for some of the hottest music artists in the world, including Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston, Ke$ha, Britney Spears, Deborah Cox, and Mary J. Blige…just to name a few.
Amongst the numerous events around the globe that DrewG has played are New York City’s famous Black Party (as the youngest DJ ever to play the event, which he’s now done three times), numerous Cherry weekend events in Washington, DC, a 2008 Presidential Inaugural ball for President Barack Obama, Carnival in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, Ski Weeks in Aspen, Colorado, Mammoth Lakes [Elevation], the Pink Party in Denver, CO, several of Jason Harrigan’s Mardi Gras events in Sydney, Australia, Dunes Resort events in Saugatuck, Michigan, Ascension weekend at Fire Island Pines, and Sand Blast in Asbury Park, New Jersey.
DJ/Producer Matt Effect is an established performer who has been spinning for many varied events, since starting in his hometown of Sydney, Australia. He has held residencies at some of Sydney's biggest gay clubs including ARQ Nightclub, Manacle, The Oxford Hotel, Phoenix and Midnight Shift, UP Dayclub, Club Exile, to name a few. Along with these venues, he's featured at parties all over such as CHUNKY (SYD/MEL/ADL), DAYWASH (SYD), Tri-Nations (AKL), SWEAT (SFO), FOLSOM EAST (NYC), WoofClub (SYD), SALVATION (SYD), Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras' infamous closing party LANEWAY, and many other destinations throughout.
Matt is becoming one of the most recognizable and sought after DJ's after his 2010 and 2012 tours through the United States. Matt has played at several international events including San Francisco Pride, Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras, Southern Hibearnation (Melbourne, AUS), LAZY BEAR (Guerneville, CA), Up Your Alley from Folsom Street Events (San Francisco, CA), Bear Essentials (Sydney, AUS), Bearracuda (San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland), Vancouver Pride, Bear Week (Provincetown, MA), Bear Market (Guerneville, CA), and Bear New Zealand (Auckland, NZ).
Not many DJ's come along that show such versatility in their work quite like Matt Effect. His work ranges over many different styled events, to not shy away in the background but yet to stand out as one of the big guns. Which has developed him a great reputation not only for his music, but his dedication towards all his work.
