FINAL NAMES ADDED:
ABOVE & BEYOND
Making their South West Four debut and completing this year’s incredible line-up are the World’s No.4 ranked DJs – Above & Beyond. There are DJs who can rock a party, a club, a festival. And there are acts that can write songs that will bring out the goose bumps in you. But there’s only one group that can do both... and that group is Above & Beyond. This 3-piece have remixed Madonna, won ‘Essential Mix of the Year’, and played to one million people in Rio de Janeiro. Above & Beyond will appear alongside Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, BT, Tall Paul and 16 Bit Lolitas in The Gallery Stage in association with Trackitdown.net. The Gallery remains Above & Beyond’s favourite destination in London and such is their popularity at the club that they were recently honoured with the “Best Headline DJ of 2008” Award at The Gallery end of year poll – voted for by the fans. Above & Beyond recently won Best Group at the IDMA Awards, ahead of fellow nominees Daft Punk, Pendulum, Soulwax and Justice. The trio’s debut artist album, ‘Tri-State’, was released in 2006 to widespread acclaim (“In a word ‘Brilliant’” DJ Magazine) and more recently the group have released an album as ‘OceanLab’, in partnership with Justine Suissa. Above & Beyond’s peerless production skills and energetic DJ performances have seen them become one of the most in-demand acts in the dance scene today, headlining festivals all over the world and performing to 1 million people on New Year’s Eve in Rio, Brazil. Above & Beyond’s ‘Trance Around The World’ radio show (available here as a free podcast / http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=286889904), has reached No.3 in both the UK and US iTunes music podcast charts and is syndicated on over 120 FM stations worldwide, currently reaching around 20 million weekly listeners. In addition, Above & Beyond TV (www.youtube.com/aboveandbeyond) was recently launched and features exclusive content of the guys on tour, plus look out for the release of the OceanLab Remixes Album “Siren’s Of The Sea REMIXED’. "It's our first SW4 and our first outdoor (or festival) gig in London, so we're doubly looking forward to this one." (Tony McGuinness, Above & Beyond)
SW4 fave James Zabiela is the final name added to this year’s mighty Main Stage. Last seen on the Common in 2006, James remains of the one most influential DJs on the circuit. New for 2009 is his ‘Masters’ compilation for Renaissance and his Positronic residency at matter. Since winning Muzik Magazine’s ‘Bedroom Bedlam’ competition back in 2001, James has carved out an impressive career with headline club and festival gigs all over the globe. He remains synonymous in pushing new musical technology, as proved when asked to test Pioneer’s new DJM800, CDJ1000MK3 and EFX 1000... and in 2007, James embarked on a huge worldwide tour with fellow SW4 DJ Nic Fanciulli to form the dream team ‘one+one’. Don’t miss James in the afternoon sun as completes his South West Four hat-trick.
Another major highlight not to miss will be the debut outing of cult DJ/Producer Darren Emerson in the Global Underground Stage. Darren is one of the most influential figures in dance music, a worthy accolade after a career spanning nearly 20 years and counting. At the age of 18, a friend introduced him to Rick Smith and Karl Hyde. The duo had been in a band together for several years and needed a new injection. And the rest is, well… Underworld! Signed to Junior Boys Own, the band released three albums: ‘Dubnobasswithmyheadman’, ‘Second Toughest in the Infant’ and ‘Beaucoup Fish’, selling over a million albums world-wide and spawning their hits ‘Cowgirl’, ‘Rez’, ‘Dark and Long’ and of course, ‘Born Slippy’ – all classics. Darren left the band in 2000 to expand his DJing and work with producers he was meeting on his travels across the world. The first collaboration saw Darren and SW4 headliner Sasha produce the Ibiza classic ‘Scorchio’ and his Underwater Records label became the house label of noughties, and his Underwater residency at The End was the stuff of legend. Earlier this year Darren released his 3rd Global Underground mix - ‘GU 36: Bogata’ and continues his unrelenting schedule of DJ gigs around the globe. Catch him exclusively at South West Four as the iconic dance star makes his highly anticipated debut.
