Sander van Doorn, Danny Howard, JFK
Saturdays are back on the agenda when Gatecrasher Birmingham invites you to enter The Superstar Boudoir, where a feast of Turntable talent is laid bare for clubbing consumption.
With 4 Clubs and 9 bars to explore, the venue is more than just a club. Saturday nights at Ga...tecrasher Birmingham are THE place for clublands most revered dance and music fans can expect the best that house, electro, trance, alternative and RnB has to offer.
Dutch legend and Gatecrasher favourite SANDER VAN DOORN makes his Birmingham debut this spring alongside rising star and new Radio 1 Dance Anthems DJ DANNY HOWARD for a bank holiday spectacular on Saturday 7th April.
The stage is set. The lights are down. The anticipation for whatâ€™s to come is rising through the club like electric energy. Excitement is building until the massive LED screens reveals the name that theyâ€™ve all been waiting for, a name that makes the crowd eruptâ€¦here it comesâ€¦ SANDER VAN DOORN!
Sander Van Doorn had a phenomenal 2012! Highlights included the wildly successful second edition of his â€œDusk Till Doornâ€ compilation and ambitious sell-out global tour, a residency at The Marquee in Las Vegas and his first Vocal Production â€œLove is Darknessâ€ Featuring Carol Lee. He was also awarded the prestigious Silver Harp Award at the Buma Harp Gala 2011 in Utrecht, Netherlands. The harp is one of the highest awards you can receive in Holland and has only ever been previously awarded to Tiesto and Armin Van Buuren.
A technical and musical genius, Sander van Doorn is without a doubt one of the worldâ€™s most essential, influential and popular DJ/Producers in dance. A brand synonymous with excellence â€“ both production wise, and in front of the thousands he plays to nightly. He is truly one of the strongholds in dance music, a generation defining artist that reshapes the perception of what dance music can be. When Carl Cox stops the music to point you out, telling the nearly 50,000 people â€œThis is one of the best producers in music today, remember his nameâ€¦Sander van Doorn!â€ then you can bet the whole world will take notice. And Carl wasnâ€™t the only Sander fan. Armin van Buuren named Sander one to watch early on, and Tiesto championed his productions regularly.
Sander seized the opportunities at hand and dedicated himself to a relentless touring and production schedule for the next few years. It was during this time that Sander penned some of his classics. From originals like Grasshopper, Punkâ€™d and Riff, to massive remixes of The Killers (Spaceman), Sia (The Girl You Lost To Cocaine), Robbie Williams (Close My Eyes) and Depeche Mode (Peace) it seemed the lad from Eindhoven was on a collision course for superstardom.
He is now required headliner at the most prestigious institutions dance music has ever known. Mysterland, Dance Valley, Global Gathering, Sankeys, Pacha, Cream, Sensation, Space, SW4, Trance Energy, Creamfields and of course Gatecrasher have all hailed his arrival .Each year the number of countries visited grows, as does his frequent flier status. With a tour diary that seeâ€™s the superstar play to more than a million fans each year, thereâ€™s no doubt that that Sander van Doorn is dance musicâ€™s favourite son.
Sander continues to meet the demands of being one of the worldâ€™s most sought after artistsby continuing to evolve musically, professionally and artistically. In 2010 a deal was reached with global satellite leader SiriusXM to syndicate his radio show called â€˜Identity.â€™ The show airs twice weekly to over 10 million worldwide on channel 38, Electric Area.
Joining Sander is new radio 1 signing DANNY HOWARD. Howardâ€™s rise to fame has been nothing short of stratospheric. This month the superstar has been confirmed as the latest addition to the star-studded line-up at Radio 1. Danny , will front his very own Radio 1 show â€œDance Anthemsâ€ every Saturday from 4pm to 7pm.
The popularity of the former Syndicate nightclub DJ has rocketed since he won the stationâ€™s Superstar DJ 2011 competition in the Summer and opened Radio 1â€™s Ibiza Weekend at the Ushuaia Hotel in Ibiza..
In 5 short years Danny has established himself as a real genuine next level DJ in a very short space of time. Throughout his DJ career Danny has already had great success playing at various venues across the UK and internationally gaining residencies at Ministry Of Sound as well as at UKâ€™s biggest Superclub â€˜The Syndicateâ€™ in Blackpool.
In his own words Danny describes his style as â€˜Sexy houseâ€™ but because of his love for electronic music, he has never pigeonholed himself into a single style or genreâ€¦ â€˜If it sounds good, Iâ€™ll play itâ€™!
Dannyâ€™s DJ sets are very much based on being versatile, using influences from every genre from every era and giving the crowd in front of him an unforgettable performance! Heâ€™s played at some of the top nightclubs as well as at various venues across the UK often supporting some of the worldâ€™s top DJs & Acts, most recently two appearances at one of the worldâ€™s most famous clubs â€“ Space Ibiza. He has also featured on some of the UKâ€™s biggest club brand dance tours such as Hed Kandi, Cream and Gatecrasher.
At just 23 years of age, Danny became one of the youngest resident DJs at The Syndicate Superclub in Blackpool (The UKâ€™s Biggest Club) and also had a very successful residency for the world renowned Ministry of Sound & Hed Kandi based in Egypt earlier in 2011.
Danny Howard has hit the ground running after his phenomenal achievement at Radio 1, heâ€™s in the studio with some of the industryâ€™s most talented producers, gigs lined up from coast to coast, demand for residencies coming in thick and fast and with his future yet unscripted things are rapidly on the up for Danny and his rise to stardom is motoring at an unprecedented speed.
