Bio (from his Facebook Page): Counting the likes of Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto and Gareth Emery as firm supporters of his sound, and with his music “an essential part of my live sets” for Paul Van Dyk – it’s easy to see how Ben Nicky has tattooed his mark on the scene to become one of the most sought-after uplifting and psy trance DJs on the circuit right now.
Armed with a catalog of productions signed to the biggest labels on the planet including Ultra, Spinning, Armada, Vandit Recordings and more, Ben has taken his blistering DJ sets to the world’s biggest clubs leaving no continent untouched. From the US to Australia, India to Argentina, Ben Nicky’s name has become synonymous with the kind of once-in-a-lifetime sets that has seen him play at iconic festivals like Nature One, Tomorrowland and A State Of Trance, as well as world class venues like Godskitchen and Ministry of Sound.
Grum Bio (from his Facebook Page): Recently finding himself listed as one of the top ten selling Progressive DJ’s on Beatport, Graeme Shepherd, aka Grum, is on incredible form.
His two most recent singles, ‘Shout’ (Anjuna) and ‘Under Your Skin’ (Anjuna) accomplished #1 in the Beatport Progressive & Trance Charts and have been extensively supported on R1 & Sirius XM by the likes of Danny Howard & Deadmau5. A regular favourite in the sets of Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren, Sander van Doorn, Gareth Emery & Camelphat etc, Grum’s consistent track record doesn’t seem likely to stop anytime soon. To date he’s had six tracks in the Beatport Top Ten, plus, overall, a remarkable 31 releases in the Beatport Top 100. This has amounted to spending over 1000 days in the Top 100 – something which looks set to continue with a packed schedule for the rest of 2017.
Fehrplay Bio (from his Facebook Page): Never one to talk down his Norwegian roots, the life and times of Jonas Fehr have not been limited to one global locality. Taking to the dance mecca that is Manchester as a student, the young producer quickly found solstice in the city’s underground nightspots. Upon realization that education could never provide the hands-on experience Jonas craved, a degree in music production was promptly replaced by a first-hand ascent of the UK club circuit. The pieces would form together to see ‘Meow’, Jonas’s breakout offering, rack a considerable milestone and the first of many seals of approval from Pete Tong. An infectious landmark by all counts, Fehrplay has gone on to emulate that initial thrill of industry approval into his every musical venture.
But for all his musical triumphs, a spot on Pryda Friends buoyant roster of talent has not hurt the young Norwegian’s chances at reclaiming the world of progressive house with unprecedented force. Whilst championing the sound of his peers within the Pryda Friends stronghold, his own sound has continued to differentiate and added to the label’s powerful grasp on the digital market. A concoction of cinematic scores and melodic composure, his lust to evoke emotion in a coherent manner for the club floor has made this a tough sound to box, but one that continues to thrill amid the cookie cutter generation. With an ethos that a good melody and poignant groove can reign indestructible, the journey from 2012’s ‘Incognito’ to ‘I Can’t Stop,’ ‘Phantom’ and the deep and melodic ‘Monte’ has kept fans and industry tastemakers in awe. From outspoken euphoria to cuts from the playbooks of deep house and techno, his studio repertoire to date plays with unlimited calibre.
