Rafal Kosieradzki aka DJ K'Reeves was born in Lomza in Poland.
The journey began with music from an early age. Unlike most of his peers, taste for such genres as Techno, Acid Trance, Goa Trance but was never closed to other types of music.
When he started going to school view DJ impressed him so much that he decided to pursue this would take a similar position.
The beginnings were difficult but he managed to through a friend's birthday party, after which spread the news about a man who puts people in seats to dance. In this way, he was given the opportunity to indulge in more forces school event, where he passed the exam and was frequently invited guest at school partys.
With time and a friend decided to open a radio housing estates, which were trained and showed others their skills. Soon the radio was spotted by a different radio stations (Radio Lomza 88.8 Mhz). He had the opportunity to instantly broadcast Friday evening, and thus became a recognizable person in the Lomza area.
His first start in the club had 15 years of age through the organization by Lomza Brewery Championships DJs, which took place in the biggest club Atom Lomza, where under the Ralph K. pseudoniomem took 2nd place.
2 position gave him entry to many clubs in Lomza, and surrounding towns where the age of 18 he played such species as Electro House, Dance, R'n'B and Hip-Hop sometimes.
The situation changed radically after meeting a person who changed his views on the Trance music and its variations. A love that was born to this music opened to him a completely new stage in life. It is this music has mobilized it to obtain a license the DJ, who was awarded in October 2005.
A new image has changed so require changes to existing pseudonym of Ralph K. on DJ K'Reeves and changed the place of residence and moved to a bigger city Bialystok. Unfortunately the location does not gave him an opportunity to play his music, because most clubs have been directed to the commercial music you played before. For this reason, it can be heard only a few times in Bialystok clubs as a guest, and after about 6 months, ceased to play in clubs.
In order not to lose the forms returned to play on the radio sites, which this time brought more satisfaction because the music Trance attracted a huge number of listeners. In a short time began to be noticeable DJ in the online world.
During this period, very much deepened their knowledge about Trance and also became interested in minimalist music, which soon also began playing on the radio and also met with high approval from the audience. The period as he himself called 'website promotion' lasted about 1.5 years. After this period, he began to use the proposed guest trips to Poland and Europe, which brought him enormous advantages, because he played in many clubs.
At the moment approximately one year living in Austria and as a DJ is her representative. As of today continue to maintain contact with radios to provide internet and on the web. In constant contact at the Austrian club life as well as radio stations.
Coming soon is his time to the production of their own tracks.

Varela is sought after by the most significant national and international media. He has been interviewed by television channels such as: MTV (Germany, Belgium, and Spain), VIVA, the BBC as well as Telecinco, TVE and Antena 3 just to name a few. Likewise his interviews have been printed in El Mundo, El País, GQ, Rolling Stone, and other international publications including Raveline (Germany), Time Out (Greece), Loud (Japan), Trax (France) and that put out by the Miami Winter Conference.
In 1986, he created his first classically styled compositions that surprised and caught the interest of those both near and far. In particularly it piqued the interest of many theatrical directors who chose to include some of his works in pieces such as: “El retablo de la avaricia”(“The Tableau of Greed”), “La Lujuria” (“Lust”) or in “La muerte de Valle Inclán” (The Death of Valle Inclán”) and others by the Calderón de la Barca Company. He was also the composer of music of a work by Mario Vargas-Llosa, “Ojos Bonitos” (“Pretty Eyes”).
It was at that time that Cristian Varela began his extensive and fruitful career as a composer and pianist than spanned more than 19 years of professional dedication, but without abandoning what he had considered his “hobby”, electronica. This year, his work in this genre earned him yet again Best Techno Deejay 2008, an award he has won several years in a row. He also brought out his new discographic production this year: “The Best Of Cristian Varela Since 1994”. This disk brings together the best and most famous hits of his extensive career under the well known Spanish label Blanco y Negro (BCN). He has also returned in full force to his work as musician and composer for film sound tracks (“Ramirez” 2009) and for music videos (“Cardboard head” 2010).
His productions and live performances around the world made him into an ambassador of electronica music. The vast discography he has authored triumphs wherever it goes and has led to his constant international tours across the globe from Japan to the United States by way of Europe and the United Kingdom.
With more than 100 works put on the market since 1994, with some of the most emblematic labels, including remixes, albums, maxi-albums and compilations, some of which have achieved remarkable sales such as, “El Cigarrito-Lunatic Dreams”. This was his first disk on the market and has served as a guide for many producers since then, as it was a benchmark in the era of techno-trance music. “Your Body Experiences Remix” and others have sold thousands of copies around the world, and have made him an irreplaceable figure within the landscape of cutting edge music, as well as making him an essential presence at the most prestigious electronica music festivals in the world. All of this cemented his place as a true specialist of contemporary cutting edge music.
And in a more commercial ambient he has remixed no less than titles as well known as the Eurhythmics’ “Sweet Dreams”, Michael Zager´s Band’s “Let´s All Chant” or “Rescue Me” used in a TV advertisement for a beer. He has also provided the sound track for the fashion shows of designer Felipe Varela, for his 1999, 2000 and 2001 lines of the prestigious Pasarela Cibeles de la Moda (Cibeles Fashion Week).
In 1994, along with his brother and current manager he created Pherenetic Society. From this music production house he directs two record labels: Pornographic Recordings, which ranks among the top techno music labels of the moment and provides an opportunity to new talents across the globe; and Donkeyhead Recordings, which encompasses style such as electro-house and ambient music.
A DJ School and the hiring of national and international artists are the other key points of Phrenetic Society.

DUSTY KID [aka Paolo Alberto Lodde] was born in the first half of the decade of the 80’s. As a new „enfant prodige“ he immediately showed his natural attitude for the variegated „music world“. At 10, after just one year of private lessons of the basic notions of piano and violin, he was admitted directly to the 6° year of the piano course in the conservatory of his native city. Following the accademic experience, his tasks moved gradually from the austere classical world to the electronic system, free from binds and traditional old-fashioned diktats. DUSTY KID started to manipulate synthesizers, samplers and sequencers, and he realized that one passion was growing and growing: the ardor for arranging and producing his own compositions. He released his first single „I Found A Reason“ at 19 on the English label Lowered Recordings, and then he produced various singles and remixes for Mutiny UK, Robbie Rivera and Trinity Hi-Fi. The first official single under the aegis of the pseudonym DUSTY KID was „The Summer of Love“.
But it’s during 2004 that Dusty Kid creates the project Duoteque with DJ Andrea Ferlin and releases numerous EPs on Boxer Recordings and the tracks were immediately included in the DJ sets of some of the most important names, like Richie Hawtin, Tiefschwarz, Ricardo Villalobos, Dominik Eulberg, Sven Väth and Magda.
After the Duoteque experience Paolo decides to take his own way and to release his own productions as DUSTY KID.
First release was the NEW ORDINAMENT EP on Motivo, followed by a second EP in 2007. 2007 is also the year of various releases as Dusty Kid on labels such as Kling Klong „Signal ‘63 EP“, Systematic „Tsunamy“/“Milk“, Boxer Recordings „Anatome EP Vol.1“ and Southern Fried Records „The Cat“ / „The Kitten“, all hugely supported by DJS all over the world and still doing damage on the dancefloors and in the charts, as well as getting amazing reviews from press.
But there’s still time to the end of the year…and while producing tracks for his debut album and the various gigs around the world, Paolo has in the mean time placed some more tracks due for release prior to the end of the year as well as delivered some amazing remixes for the like of Josh Gabriel and The Droyds [the latter for #1 dance Italian label Rebirth]…
DUSTY KID Live Set
You can’t restrict it in a genre… a sort of eclectic techno with influences from the 80’s restrained with acid house and spiced with minimal… in few words… a big beat soup!

When a house music legend like Roger Sanchez names his Breakthrough DJ/Producer of 2009, it’s time to sit up and take notice - meet Abel Ramos.
Born in February 1973 and raised in Madrid, Abel started DJing at a local club, aged just 15, playing anything that was synth-driven from Human League to Nitzer Ebb or Acid House.
It didn’t take long for Abel to establish himself as one of Spain’s most talented DJs, catching the ears of thousands along the way and winning awards such as Best National DJ from Spain’s answer to Mixmag, ‘Deejay Magazine’, gaining top gigs for the likes of Sensation, Rock In Rio, Global Gathering, and frequenting places as far afield as Australia. Abel has also established his SOLO event, which now attracts over 5000 people to the yearly show.
Not content with just playing the music of his heroes to local fans, Abel started producing music, which meant his sound could now reach audiences outside of the Spanish borders. It wasn’t long before Abel’s hard, techy beats were catching the attention of producers and labels throughout the world, including Swedish hotshot Axwell, who signed one of his first productions, ‘Rotterdam City of Love’ to his label, Axtone, after hearing the track being played in a club in Madrid. This track really opened up Abel’s sound to a generation of new producers: the groove just worked on the floor and everybody wanted a piece of the action.
Axwell was also instrumental in getting Abel’s remix of Fatboy Slim’s ‘Right Here, Right Now’ signed to Skint, as the Swedish House Mafia were playing it continuously in their sets. Soon label head of Skint, Dave Philpot, was being bombarded with requests to license the track and he requested a copy to play to Norman Cook, who liked it so much he decided to give it an official release.
Then when Abel didn’t think it was possible for things to get any better, an email arrived in his inbox from David Guetta, expressing how much he liked his work and asking him if he would be interested in remixing two of his tracks, ‘When Love Takes Over’ and ‘Sexy Bitch’. Both went on to sell thousands of copies around the world, making Abel one of the most in-demand remixers in the world.
Not content with setting dancefloors on fire with his DJing skills and productions, Abel also infects the radio waves, hosting a weekly radio program called Concept Music on one of Spain’s most popular radio stations, LocaFM.
2010 looks set to be a pretty good year for Abel Ramos. Following an intense year of remixing, he has finally found time in the studio to concentrate on new material. He’s also decided to launch his own label, With Love Music, with the help of Spinnin.. Records. Watch this space.
Abel continues to wow his peers, remixing Barbara Tucker for King Street Sounds, signing ‘House Nation’ to Robbie Rivera’s ‘Juicy’ label - which made it to No.7 on the DMC Buzz Chart - and Fantastic to Toolroom.
With all the above already to his name, like the S-Man predicted, Abel is more than capable of making it to the top.

The Dandi & Ugo duo is born from a strong friendship and a great passion for techno music.
It is their native land (Romagna) that takes them to frequent and, successively, perform in Rimini and Riccione's clubs in their most magic period (beginning of 90s).
After a decade of DJ sets in clubs such as, among others, Echoes Liz Club / Cocorico' / Pascia' / Ecu / Peter pan / Classic Club / Madame Butterfly, they decide to switch to production thus starting a new adventure that takes them to realize records, initially with prestigious Italian labels ( Re>>Vox records / tereo Seven Plus Records ) and next european labels ( Lasergun / Great Stuff / uxaFlex records / Artminimal Berlin / Sammeplantz / Immigrant ) with a big success with creations from artists such as Rchie Hawtin/Len Faki Mihalis Safras / Florian Meindl / Marc Houle / Gregor Tresher / Someone Else / Xpansul / John Aquaviva / Martin Eyerer / Butch / Mauro Picotto / Markantonio / Joseph Capriati / Claudio Coccoluto / and many others.
In 2006, together with Alessandro Piatto ( N.O.I.A / Klein & Mbo) they decide to open their own label.
This starts the birth of ITALO BUSINESS RECORDS, a project divided into 4 parts: vinyl, net label, digital download and booking agency.
The discovery of new artists worldwide, and the support of internationally known DJs, makes of this label a referring point for the Techno movement. "

Mateusz Wlodarczyk "The Evading" (also known as Matvel) was born in 1986 in Bialystok.
From the earliest years electronic music became his obsession.
At first he prefer trance and harder styles like hardstyle, hard trance and hardcore.
His favourite artists are Joris Voorn, Gaiser, Trentemoller, Telefon Tel Aviv, Paul Kalkbrener, Bryan Kearney, Way Out West and many more.
Now he hasn't got favourite style, he can play everything from chillout to hard techno.
Over last several years Mateusz improved his dj skills.
In sets he always tries to suprise listeners and do something unexpected.
Relating to official previews 2009 is the year to become a very difficult one. Recession in europe? A world crisis in economy? Nobody really knows how to call it correctly like it will be. But one thing is for sure. Though people may expect the worst Lucie Kvasnicová, better known as Lucca by her fans, will expect a highlight in her career.
This tiny and beautiful woman from the czech republic has played and placed herself into the hearts of her fans throughout the last decade and received much respect from male collegues like Chris Liebing or even Carl Cox who still is one of her favourite turntablist in techno business. All of them estimate Lucca a lot and cherish her style and skills and give her the references a worldwide top-dj does need to have.
Lucca's approach towards the perfect sound has always been accompanied by authenticity and devotion. Firstly captured by the house sound by dj sneak Lucca afterwards seduced herself to the techno vibes from napoli. In this epoque Lucca started to be part in every line up of every essential event concerning this style and was given her own festival organised by her former agency Mersey. As a conclusion she performed at "Live @ Hradhouse 2005" a unique concert which was also released on dvd showing this wonderful location placed in the castle of Boskovica and Lucca as the headliner. But she did not stop changing and created her own sound - the Sound Of Acapulco.
More than five years ago in 2003 it was time for Lucca to launch her own label named Acapulco Records. This move has been considered one of the most important actions for the techno scene among the czech republic which was still developing at this point of time. Releases of Acapulco became the synonym for progressing czech techno and were mentioned in many playlists and dj charts. The relaunch of her label now called Sound Of Acapulco could not knock down her acceptance and did show her skills concerning musical visionary even in a brighter light.
Currently this bright light is being transmitted by her debut album "Reformation" which mirrors Lucca's personal trip through life. It is purely a big exhibition of her personal taste of music and a common production with the german producer Tobias Fiedler. As a special appearance even the famous czech musician Michal Pavlicek provides his guitar riffs on her longplayer. "Reformation" does not only reflect her current life concerning music. "Reformation does sound a little bit like revolution but it is not. Me for myself it sounds slightly to aggressive", Lucca claims in an interview. Moreover her album has been built around the experiences she faced the recent years while travelling and now is the djane's v-card. "Reformation" not just includes her former hit single "Body Dance" it is also packed with twelve new stunning tracks e.g. "Quantum" her personal favourits „Hundertwasser“, „Teleport“ und „Noise Town“ as she says. But Lucca would not be satisfied with her engagement for music if she would not plan to start a new longplayer production starting within the next year. This woman is simply restless.
Meanwhile Lucca is a resident guest in music magazins and an appreciated partner concerning endorsement deals. She recently has been the face of well known manufacturer American Audio and cover act of Raveline Germany's leading magazin for electronic music. She also did a highly acclaimed special mix for this particular issue which was downloaded many many times and shows her well timed presence and knowledge of music if needed. For this reason she once again has been elected "DJ Of The Year" in the Czech Dance Music Awards and still does host her own radio show on Paul van Dyk's Vonyc Radio since may 2008.

Jarek Czechowski known as Angelo Mike, for years has been a synonym of music quality and commitment to the club scene.
Winning titles of the Best DJ in Poland and other awards in electronic music, for many years he provides us with wonderful music experiences not only as a DJ, but also as a promoter. He was responsible for bringing for the first time to Poland most of the leading world's club scene artists and a well-known events such as Sensation White.
Now he is focused mainly on producing his own music, which lately has been released by Sentence Records.
Recently, he's also presented his own radio broadcasts. "Connect with Angelo Mike" can be heard every week on the radio Planeta FM (Poland), and the second show, "Sentence Sessions" aired on international Frisky Radio.
"I play for people and only for theirs sake..."
It takes years for true professionals to build their names, because even the greatest of successes is all the more reason for them to continue evolving. Angelo Mike is exactly such a professional, and the idea of resting on his laurels has never even crossed his mind. Nonetheless, being a professional in every sense of the word alone in the job of a DJ and producer is only half of what's needed most - the rest is talent, which lures crowds to follow their beloved artist.
Mother, wife and lover
We're thinking about music here, and it was love to music which turned Jarek Czechowski into Angelo Mike and to this day strengthens his prodigy. "It's easy to relish success, give into hedonism, forget about the most important principles. Music is the reason why I'm at this point, still drawing joy from working. It constantly reminds me of why I got onto this road in the first place", says Angelo Mike. And what has his choice meant? A dozen or so years of getting into DJ booths to give the crowd a piece of himself, so people can feel drawn into the story he's got to tell. During his gigs, the division between artist and fans is nonexistent. There's one perfectly harmonious whole supported by an amazing diversity of electronic music. Music, which makes every hour and every minute of the night an unforgettable experience.
From Southern Poland...
Everything started in his hometown Nowy Sacz, where Jarek organized his first parties. If success were easily countable, it could be represented by the comparison of the amounts of people attracted to his ventures - a dozen or so in the early days and thousands at events like the Polish edition of Sensation White. But lots of other things had to happen in the meantime to make such success possible. One of the most important steps was the move to Warsaw, which is where he celebrated winning the title of the Best Polish DJ in 'Laif' magazine reader's poll. He ended up winning 4 years in a row, but it needs to be stressed clearly that he earned each and every vote by playing in every part of the country with almost every big name in the international electronic scene. It was difficult to imagine a significant event without him at the time. Today, his place at the top of the scene lets him carefully choose where and when he spins, because he prefers places where he can be sure that the music profile and technical equipment will let him show his artistry in its entirety.
Polish DJs rarely go abroad to perform. This doesn't hold for respected producers of course, because they are a highly valued commodity in all four corners of the globe. Jarek is still working on his success story production-wise, but he's already got his fair share of rich experiences from his journeys to other countries. He was the first Pole to ever perform at Mayday in Dortmund. He played at Creamfields in Prague and German festivals like Soundtropolis, Nature One, House of Summer and Love Parade to name but a few. He also played twice on the biggest festival in Ireland - Planet Love. Multiple gigs in London, Dublin, Germany, Russia, Malta, Slovakia or Czech Republic have gained him fans far beyond the Polish backyard. We're also talking about the USA here, as Jarek performed at Congress Theatre together with ATB. Furthermore he rocked the dancefloor of Chicago's club Vision twice so far, lately during Poland Calling tour promoting his last compilation under the same name.
The next step
Organising the aforementioned Polish edition of the world's most spectacular dance event, Sensation White, is also an important aspect of Jarek's life. Instead of passively observing the many faults, errors and shortcomings that so thoroughly plague his country's clublife, he decided to take matters into his hands. This is how the booking agency Sentence and the event agency Essence Music came into being. The first one focuses on professional management and promotion of talented artists, while Essence Music organized huge parties in Wroclaw and Poznan. They were responsible for booking such names as Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, ATB, Above & Beyond and Tiëst (twice!). The second edition of Polish Sensation White also took placed with Jarek's involvement, which is the best possible proof of how the biggest promoters on the planet trust the agency.
At the moment Jarek Czechowski is a founding father of compilation project named POLAND CALLING including electronic music tracks of Polish artists only. It's the first and unique in its kind compilation released in Poland. Jarek included on compilation his debut productions, the fruits of many hours spent in his studio. These tracks are manly progressive with a bit of minimal and tech house vibes. He was inspired by emotions accompanying him during years of djing. It's amazing in how ideal way he encompassed in melody everything what he wanted to express. Every fan of club music should listen to it.
Recently, he's also presented his own radio broadcasts. "Connect with Angelo Mike" can be heard every week on the radio Planeta FM (Poland), and the second show, "Sentence Sessions" aired on international Frisky Radio.
"Every single success opens the door to another one. I can't and I don't want to stop. I'm working with people who I deeply value. I'm working for people that make me exist" - Angelo Mike -

With a music career already spanning nearly two decades, comprising four albums and multiple singles, some could think that Robert Babicz would be ready to settle down for a quiet life, however, nothing could be further from the truth. With his fourth full length due to drop in March 2010 on Systematic Recordings, Robert Babicz continues to reveal his talent and skill as one of Europe’s most essential techno producers.
Straight out of Cologne in 1993, under the pseudonym Rob Acid, Babicz released his first single Happy Answer on London Records, which unexpectedly became a huge club hit. With the rise of acid house influenced records dominating the charts, Babicz was able to ride high on this new wave of club culture. In addition to becoming an in demand live performer using one of his other names, Acid Warrior, Babicz started to release singles on high profile imprints like Kompakt, Treibstoff and Steve Bug’s Audiomatique, as well as his own label, Junkfood.
In what Rob appropriately dubs “the rave years” in the mid-nineties, he was already playing all over the world. During this time Babicz teamed up with Mate Galic and psychedelic sonic experiences of every kind followed, which as Rob himself sums up perfectly came as a result of “excessive sound-research and absurd parties… transistor radio and porn films on big screen”. His affiliation with Force Inc a few years later brought a series of more experimental, less dancefloor-orientated works which suggested his theoretical musique concrete roots.
By the turn of the new millennium, Babicz was striving for a different sound and thus began a new label, Shortcut. At the same time, he received multiple requests for sound design from hard and software producers, most notably resulting in the presets he produced for Native Instruments. In 2007 Robert released his landmark record, A Cheerful Temper on Systematic Recordings, which expertly moves between electronica, techno, minimal and classic house.
Playing ‘live’ has always been a key feature of Babicz’s authentic musicianship; improvising instead of reeling off pre-determined sets has made his celebrated shows unquestionably unique events. He consistently delivers astonishing performances of his own productions built around warm melodies, blissed atmospherics & analogue bass - sometimes jacking, but mostly tripping and always around the foundations of his first love: techno. Consequently, Babicz has more than proven his worth in the world of dance music and his right to the title of pioneer and innovator, whether producing tech house, minimal or acid techno. With the release of Immortal Changes in early 2010, described by DJ Mag as a “marriage of organic groove and glistening electronic melodies” it is clear that Robert Babicz still has much more to give…

Christian Weber verbindet in seiner Musik und als DJ verschiedenste Styles zu einem Ganzen. Er vereint authentisch in seiner Person die verschiedensten Projekte und Aktivitaeten und gehoert so zu den erfolgreichsten, eigenwilligsten und vielseitigsten Vertretern seiner Zunft. Durch die Musik der Siebziger und Achtziger wie Disco, Rock, Funk und House gepraegt, wurde schon in frueher Kindheit sein Interesse an elektronischer Musik geweckt und somit begann schliesslich 1989 seine DJ-Karriere in Hamburg. Immer wieder durch neue musikalische Trends beeinflusst, entwickelte sich nach und nach sein einzigartiger Stil, den er seit 1996 in seinen eigenen Produktionen vereint. 1999 landete er unter Mellow Trax mit „Phuture Vibes“ den Techno-Hit des Jahres und festigte sein Standing mit weiteren Hits wie „Mystery in Space“, „Outa Space“ und seinem Album „Techno Vibes“. Im Jahre 2000 wurde er dafuer als erster Act mit dem German Dance Award ausgezeichnet. Neben seinen unzaehligen Remixen fuer namhafte Kuenstler, wie z.B. Schiller oder Camouflage, agierte er unter anderem als ein Part der „Trance Allstars“ und unterstrich mit seinen Mixen seine Vielseitigkeit, die er als Mellow Trax in den darauf folgenden Jahren erneut unter Beweis stellte – er veroeffentlichte 2004 nach intensiver Studioarbeit seinen Longplayer „How 2 Rock“. Seit 2007 beschreitet er nun neue Wege und beschallt mit seinem frischen und unverwechselbaren Sound die Clubs der Welt.

Andrew Bennett is one of the most talked about up-and-coming artists on the dance scene at the moment. Over the past two years he has released various tracks and remixes, which have received world wide recognition and praise. But Andrew Bennett is anything but a newcomer on the scene: he has been spinning the decks since 1996, he is a resident DJ at the acclaimed “Trance Nation” events and has secured regular DJ slots both in and outside of Germany, like in world-renowned clubs as “Space” on Ibiza as well at the biggest events and festivals.
But it was years later when Andrew Bennett began to produce his own tracks. And just one party changed his whole life: In the autumn of 2004 he was at a event, where Armin van Buuren and Markus Schulz stood at the decks. Andrew went over to them and slipped a CD in their hands with a track he had produced. The next day his phone rang: Armin van Buuren and Markus Schulz were on the other end of the line and were both enthusiastic by what they had heard. And they licensed Andrew’s track “Ocean Drive” on the legendary record label “Armada Music.”
Shortly after that Andrew Bennett produced the single "Language" with two other producers under the project name “Hammer & Bennett” – this track was immediately snapped up by Armada Music, too. Only a little while after its release, the track turned into a massive club hit and DJs such as Paul van Dyk, Tiesto and Gabriel & Dresden gave this track big support for months on end.
Andrew Bennett is now a DJ and producer in demand in the dance scene and also a prominent remixer: he has reworked Armin van Buuren’s track “Shivers,” Prince Quick Mix aka PQM’s track “Over The Edge,” the massive hit “Your Loving Arms” sung by Karen Overton, “Waiting” by Leama & Moor feat. Jan Johnston and “Faith In Love” for the Flash Brothers feat. Tiff Lacey – just to name a few of his numerous brilliant remixes.
Andrew’s main focus lies in producing of his own tracks. Working together with the legendary producer M.I.K.E. they have put together a mixture of singles – for example “Into The Danger”, which sparked up huge interest. Combined with Rico Soarez (aka Probspot) he produced the single “Light Of Hope” which, with a remix by Jody Wisternoff (“Way Out West”), appeared on Electronic Elements. Further successful solo singles followed such as “Menar” and also “Heaven Sent” (with vocals from Kirsty Hawkshaw). In late 2008 Andrew's collaboration with swiss superstar Tatana, released on Sirup Music, hits straight to no.1 of the Beatport Trance Charts and stayed there for a few weeks.
Andrew Bennett is seen as maybe one of the biggest insider’s secret on the dance scene by his fellow DJ colleagues, the press and by dance fans all around the world. He has already received massive recognition and plays regularly world wide. The output of his work is extremely high, but the quality of his work always remains exceptional. Armin Van Buuren is certainly not alone in saying “This guy is definitely someone to watch!”

Powerful teenager infecting you with fresh, trancy drive!
Adrian, comming from Slupsk in poland, has great plans about his own future, which he examines really carefully.
Bit shy beginning turned out to be more self-confident look on the world. He beloved trance because of his uncle, who has actually tranced him. Today, he couldn’t live without music. As mentioned earlier, first steps of music career, were made very hesitant, while releasing No Leaf Clover and Solitude in Actuate Recordings. Later on, his career began to gather momentum. Remix for Ex-Driver, has achieved first place in Top Trance Sales in shop trackitdown.net. In the meantime, Oen produces more… and more music.
Ajoyable released in 2008 in Stampgevaar Digital Label, was honored by Ferry Corsten’s support, which actually was a big shock for such young, beginner artist. In exact the same time – Adrian began playing his monthly radioshows on Sense.FM and Trance.FM called “Soundbreeze” and “Sensual Sessions.
They actually raise constantly the number of listeners and fans. However, the biggest booom was just about to come. 2009 was the biggest breakdown for that guy with big smile on his face. Somethin about 20 remixes, were supported by Ferry Corsten, Roger Shah, Pedro Del Mar, Manuel Le Saux, Sebastian Brandt, Fast Distance, and that indicated natural fact – Oen shaked the TranceWorld.
Released in that year: Unexpected Love, HopeCloud, Souriez and Feelings Shore, showed his first talent shines. His steps were just like banging – because of guys helpin him – Nivaya, TB or TrancEye – with the last one, he made a great collaboration! In 2009 they released “Kinesis” together, which has become outstanding remixpack: Mark Naden, Cylum & Velden, Ex-Driver! That tune has showed up on many prestigious Trance Compilations, and was supported by the major names on the trance scene.
2010 is awesome for Oen. Many releases with TrancEye: Bushido, Phantasmagoria, Masuo, supported mainly by: Pedro Del Mar, Roger Shah, Aly & Fila! His own work: “Unadulterated”, reviewed largely in DJMag magazine, was remixed by Airborne Angel and Mario Ayuda & Chris Callado, hooked up Pedro Del Mar and Marco V, Ferry Corsten, Rank1's attention!
Oen is silent.
This silence is silence before storm.
