The EC Twins have a style all their own. Official remixes for Andy C and Dirty Vegas combined with residencies at chic lounges across the country, this UK-born, LA-based house duo has made quite the splash.
Born and raised in the musically historic city of Manchester, England, Marc and Allister Blackham, also known as the EC Twins, began their career in the House Music scene in Edinburgh, Scotland at age 16. They quickly evolved from “flyer boys” to creating and running the city’s most successful club: Eye Candy. The Twins excelled, drawing in crowds night after night continually packing Eye Candy beyond capacity. The initials of the infamous nightclub stuck as they are still known around the world as simply…The EC Twins.
In 2005, the Twins launched their own “British Invasion” and headed for the US determined to bring House Music to America and targeted Los Angeles. They began by performing in small clubs, funneling all of their finances into their music and performances. Their hard work began paying off as they slowly turned a local fan base into an army of dedicated worldwide followers. Today, the EC Twins still call LA home and are the most influential and in demand house music DJ’s, pursued by every venue from underground to A-list.
Known for their incredibly infectious high energy shows, the Twins have performed as the opening act for artists such as the Black Eyed Peas, Kaskade, Erick Morillo, and now headline in their respective residencies at New York’s Lavo, Tao groups newest and hottest club The Marquee, and Lavo and Tao nightclubs in Las Vegas, Liv in Miami, and Enclave in Chicago. In addition, they have recently performed at major electronic music festivals such as the Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival and the Winter Music Conference.
The EC Twins continue their quest to rule the electronic music world, not only as well respected DJ’s, but also highly sought after producers. The talented duo have achieved top 10 success with their remix of Grammy nominated Andy Caldwell’s “Scream” and Second Sun & Paul Harris’s “Doing It Well” remix which outsold the original 8:1. The EC Twins/Remy Le Duc original track “Say Yes” featuring Shakeh EP, is available on iTunes after hitting the top 40 on the Beatport Progressive House Charts. Their remix with Remy Le Duc, of David Garcia & High Spies “All Here Now” featuring Sarah Tancer, has broken the top 10 on Billboard’s Dance charts and is still climbing.
Upcoming releases include OM Records highly anticipated EC Twins/Remy Le Duc remix of “Little White Doves” from the Grammy award winning act Dirty Vegas. The countdown has begun for the summer release of their remix of Paul Oakenfolds classic “Resurrection” due out on PERFECTO records and Armin Van Buuren’s ARMADA.
2011 is just the beginning of what is sure to be a long lasting career of trend setting original music and high profile remixes from this talented duo, who continually work hard to pave the way for House Music domination on a global scale.
