Miguel Campbell, Subb-an
Miguel Campbell and Subb-an gear up for an encore Sydney show to the sold out Agwa Cruise. Don’t miss out on Something Special!!
Subb-an and Miguel Campbell are two of the hottest house music acts on the planet right now, as evident by how promptly the Agwa Cruise sold out with both of these artists playing.
We have been lucky enough to secure a show for them both the day after the Cruise and what better place to see them than in the Courtyard at Sounds on Sunday. The sound will be amped up, the Courtyard cleared out to make room for dancing feet and we're sure the sun will be shining down from the pale blue skies.
Miguel's monster hit Something Special was one of the biggest tracks of the last 12 months with a mammoth 4.7 million plays on Youtube. He is a house music producer based in Leeds and has been galvanised by the house music scene since the early 90's and has been an influential DJ since that time. In 2006 he founded his own record label Outcross Records before in 2010 becoming the latest member of the hot to trot label Hot Creations.
His debut album "Back in Flight School" is a superbly crafted and pop infused journey which reignites even more cross genre potential as it explores where the heights of house meets the depths of soulful funk and disco nostalgia. hs of house meets the depths of soulful funk and disco nostalgia.
Subb-an's rapid rise to prominence as a DJ, producer and one of the most exiting new British live acts of recent years is testament to his hard work, natural talent and wholehearted commitment to electronic music. Named as DJ Magazines 'Best Breakthrough DJ' in their 2011 end of year awards, Subb-an's prodigious studio talents have seen him release on Crosstown Rebels, Spectral, Saved and My Favourite Robot and deliver much lauded remixes of Jamie Woon, Lana Del Ray, Noir & Haze and Hollis P Monroe over recent months. Outside of the studio he is a regular feature at clubs and festivals all over the world including fabric (London), Watergate (Berlin), Warehouse Project (Manchester), Movement (Detroit), D'Edge (Sao Paolo), The Electric Pickle (Miami), Just Jack (Bristol), The Harry Klein (Munich), BPM (Mexico), Space (Ibiza), Hot Natured at Sonar (Barcelona), The Garden Festival (Croatia), and Basics (Leeds).
This success hasn't been earned overnight. At just 24 years old, Ashique 'Subb-an' Subhan has done much more in his career in dance music than many artists twice his age. He first started DJing when he was just fourteen years old and enrolled on a digital music production course at the age of sixteen and he hasn't looked back, graduating with a top degree in sound design from Birmingham City Uni in 2009. While most students spend their time at university getting drunk and decorating statues with traffic cones, Subb-an, along with best friends Adam Shelton and Lee McDonald, founded Below, one of the UK's most cherished underground clubbing institutions. Drawing inspiration from summers spent at DC10 in Ibiza, Below threw its first party in the back room of the Rainbow pub in Digbeth, Birmingham back in 2005.
Since then it's gone from strength to strength, becoming an overnight success story, so much so that Adam and Lee ended up buying the pub soon after. Over the last six years it's seen the likes of Sven Vath, Loco Dice, Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler and Mathias Tanzmann headlining sold out parties that continue to draw crowds of clued-clubbers from all over the UK. During this time the main constant at Below has been Subb-an, the club's star resident who quickly became a local hero, never ceasing to impress with his innovative DJing skills and occasional live sets made up of a mixture of his own productions and re-edits of his favourite tracks from other artists.
