With 23,000 square feet of floor space and a 2,000 person capacity, The Fillmore is gearing up to be one of the area’s premier concert venues!

Blige has sold over 50 million albums and 15 million singles worldwide. This coming October, she is scheduled to release her 10th studio album, My Life II: The Journey Continues. It will be a sequel to her 1994 debut album, My Life, which ranks in at #279 on Rolling Stone’s 500 greatest albums of all-time. She is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to producing hits!

Known for her R&B, soul, and hip hop songs, some of her popular songs include “Family Affair,” her performance of “One” with U2, “Someone to Love Me,” and “Be Without You,” among others.

Morgan Page

With over 130 remixes to his name—including tracks by Madonna (“Miles Away”), Katy Perry (“I Kissed A Girl”), Tegan & Sara (“Back In Your Head”), and La Roux (“Bulletproof”)—Morgan Page has earned a solid reputation for transferring insatiable pop energy to the dance floor in the form of banging, progressive house tracks. High ranking spots on iTunes’ dance chart, Beatport’s progressive chart, an…d Billboard’s club charts affirmed his salability, while an ’09 Grammy nomination for Deadmau5’s remix of Page’s “The Longest Road” simultaneously bolstered his underground cred while spotlighting his skills as a songwriter.

Page released his first official full-length album in 2008. Entitled Elevate, it featured remixes of music by The Submarines, Dengue Fever, Nelly Furtado, Delerium, and others, along with a small handful of Page’s originals. It was the perfect calling card for a producer well steeped in vocal re-rubs, but eager to imprint his own unique mark upon dance music.

In 2010, Page will release Believe, a powerful, captivating album that makes good on his International Dance Music Awards nomination as Best Breakthrough Artist, and typifies his journey from bootleg remixer to award-winning producer and world renown DJ.

“Believe took a year and a half to make, but it was worth it!” says Page. “I went to great lengths to make songs I felt will last a long time, and to create an album you want to listen all the way through. It’s easily my best work so far.”

As a college student and mix show radio DJ in Burlington, Vermont, Page learned to navigate the space between pop music’s accessibility and the heady minimalism of progressive house early on. At the age of 18 he was nominated for Boston Music Award, and early in his career produced a remix of “Angels,” a track by seminal trip-hop band Wax Poetic, featuring the vocals of one Norah Jones. The dance community was quick to catch on, and his first instrumental tracks were signed to taste-making imprints like John Digweed’s Bedrock, Satoshi Tomiie’s Saw Recordings, and James Zabiela’s Hearing Aid. In 2003, he made the move to Los Angeles.

“I was juggling remixes with a day job, then brewing coffee at midnight,” says Page, “burning the candle at both ends and saving money so I could write music full-time.”

The landscape dramatically shifted for Page when he released a now infamous collection of bootleg remixes in 2005 entitled Cease And Desist. Without the help of master tapes (or label permission) he extracted a cappellas and signature melodies from tracks by David Bowie, Coldplay, Imogen Heap, Esthero, and The Kills with surgical precision, then rounded out the sound with luminous instrumentation and blazing beats. His undulating progressive feel and strict attention to kit detail—never the same kick drum twice, ever—was a perfect compliment to the larger than life vocal hooks. Dance music blogs like Resident Advisor and Beatportal took note, and Page’s own server continually crashed under the weight of the mix’s download traffic.

“It was like going to boot camp,” says Page of the arduous process behind creating Cease And Desist. “It was a great way of getting good at editing with limited resources, and it got out to so many people. You just didn’t know who was listening to it.”

Everyone from DJs and producers to managers, agents, and of course fans got their hands on the album, and its underground success helped pave the way for music future placements in television shows like Samantha Who? and Melrose Place, as well as cutting edge campaigns and in-stores for Bebe, Chanel, and Sephora. With his resume and repertoire quickly expanding, Page struck again with the release of Elevate, an album that KCRW DJ and electronic music pundit Jason Bentley described as “a breakthrough collection of original music and remixes” full of “subtle electronics and thoughtful songs.” Jo-Anne Greene from All Music Guide was even more forthright in her praise, referring to Page as “a man fast becoming a legend.”

Having long jettisoned his status as an up-and-comer, Page is ready to step into the next phase of his career, firmly joining the ranks of established “triple threat” DJs, producers, and remixers like Kaskade, Deadmau5, and Eric Prydz. It’s no surprise that the dance music scene is already buzzing about Believe.

“Fight For You” is the album’s first single, and is already being supported by world class DJs like Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Above and Beyond, Dave Dresden, and Hernan Cattaneo. Bolstered with impassioned lyrics and swift, clean guitars, the track embodies Believe’s fragile yet faithful feel, pushing through wistful cinematic shades to the promise of something better up ahead.

“Believe is very dark, but I’m not a dark person at all,” Page explains. “I just lean towards these specific chords and melodies. Melancholy with a little bit of hope.”

The Pete York cover “Strange Condition,” a simple, spatial arrangement that highlights Page’s ability let his vocalists control the direction of a song, and not be driven towards emotional peaks and valleys by just synths and bass. Page uses a similarly subtle approach on “Tell Me Why,” featuring the velveteen vocals of Télépopmusik’s Angela McCluskey. Elsewhere, Page enlists the talents of Matt Alber on “Agnus Dei” and Gabriel & Dresden alum Jan Burton on “Traces Remain” and the raucous “I’ve Had Friends.” On the moody “In The Dark,” Page himself takes a turn on the mic at the urging of another G&D contributor, Molly Bancroft, who was initially tapped to provide the vocals. For Page, it was simply the next logical progression in his maturation as a producer.

“I want to work with singer/songwriters who have depth to their lyrics, and I’m trying to bring influences in from other genres,” says Page. “It’s tragic to see all the tracks on Beatport that are just made for clubs. They’re great for what they are, but it’s not necessarily something you want to have in your car on repeat, or listen to again in 10 years. This album is really a reflection of myself, and I want these songs to last a long time.”

About Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano

Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano, two notable personalities with a single goal: to entertain as many people as possible with their deep and funky house sound.

From the moment they entered the DJ profession, they agreed to do something serious with their common passion: House Music! Quickly after their first gig together Sunnery and Ryan established themselves as top DJs.

Besides performing all over t…he globe, they are very busy in their
Amsterdam studio. May 2008 saw the release of debut track ‘Pina’, just 4
weeks later, dance floor cracker ‘Lift U Up’, feat. Melvin Reese & Chappell
saw light. Then things went very fast, their inspirational, upfront release
‘The Desert’, was released via D.O.N.S.’s Kingdom Kome Cuts imprint, Steve Angello scooped up ‘Traffic’ and ‘Snitch’ for release on his Size Records label and they made several remixes for the likes of Sander Kleinenberg (‘This Is Our Night’) and Kaskade (‘Dynasty’).

In February 2010, Sunnery and Ryan launched their ‘Amazone Project’ event in the Heineken Music Hall Amsterdam. 5.500 fans came to join the SJ-RMhype and witnessed an exclusive 5-hour-set. The Amazone Project compilation landed on the #2 spot in the Dutch charts.

The SJ-RM journey continues in 2010, with Sunnery & Ryan debuting at the prestigious Sensation event in the 50.000 cap. Amsterdam Arena on 3rd of July and playing Pacha Ibiza alongside Swedish House Mafia.

Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano – the energetic duo who match soulful vocals with fast pumping House. Their skill lies in the ability to build a track, drop it, pull in the next, sample soul-pleasing vocals, then drop another so smoothly that their whole set feels like a constant upward progression. Another skill is their ability to read the crowd and give them exactly what they want.

About Nadia Ali

It is sometimes hard to believe that the Grammy nomination for Nadia Ali’s “Fantasy” (Morgan Page Remix) is only one of many milestones marking her musical achievements. Nadia’s career exploded as a member of “iiO” with the massive 2001 hit, “Rapture”. Quickly leaping to #2 on the UK Singles chart, “Rapture” would propel Nadia into the spotlight and serve as a shadow of things to come. Now armed w…ith a solid decade of commercial success and an almost feverish evolution of artistic expansion… Something tells us that Nadia Ali is just warming up. To date, Nadia’s career as singer/songwriter has attracted a massive international following resulting from a masterful exploitation of captivating vocals and dance music. Nadia has attributed this unmistakable style to the overarching influence of her eastern ancestry, as well as the diverse cultural climate of her upbringing in Queens, New York.

Beginning in 2001, Nadia’s lush vocal style would take the world by storm, becoming a globally recognized trademark in the dance music industry, and keeping her in nonstop demand by the hottest innovative DJ’s worldwide. Recent and notable collaborations include: Schiller, Sultan & Ned Shepard, Chris Reece, Tocadisco, Serge Devant and Starkillers. In the mean time, Nadia’s recent team up with Armin Van Buuren, (ranked the # 1 DJ in the world for 4 consecutive years), has been generating a white-hot buzz. Jointly, Nadia and Armin shaped the brand-new dance track: “Feels So Good” and are currently carrying out a rigorous tour schedule on the “Armin Only Mirage” tour. “Armin Only” is an entirely sold-out world tour, filling arenas with tens of thousands of fans nightly.

Nadia Ali has continually proven her value with a growing list of global hits and chart-toppers that has expanded progressively over the years. These include: “Rapture”, “At The End”, “Kiss You”, and a #1 US Billboard Dance Chart hit with “Is It Love” in 2006. Nadia’s solo album “Embers” was released in 2009 and “Fantasy” soon followed, serving as a prologue to “Queen of Clubs Trilogy: Best of Nadia Ali Remixed”. In 2010, Nadia was nominated for Best Progressive/Tech House Track for “Love Story” at the International Dance Music Awards at the Winter Music Conference. She then neatly closed out the year 2010 with a Grammy nomination for her song “Fantasy”, under the “Best Re-mixed Recording” category. While Nadia has cultivated a score of industry accolades, 2010 marked the first occasion in which her work would receive the great honor and validation of a Grammy Nomination. If we are to learn anything from the pattern developing here, it could quite possibly be that Nadia Ali simply possesses both the clever intellect and raw talent required to amass this kind of staying power… and that this past decade has only been the beginning.

 

About David Berrie


From Diddy to the underground, David Berrie’s musical career has evolved in unique fashion. The one-time deejay to the stars, twenty-four year old Berrie now looks to carry dance music in New York into the next decade.

With a distinctive deejaying and production style, Berrie draws heavily on both tech and progressive house influences. Releases on Ultra Records and Nervous Records, due out in the summer of 2011, look to add to the considerable buzz Berrie has generated on house blogs around the globe.

Remixes of Chris Brown’s “Yeah 3X”, released by Jive Records, and Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep”, both produced under the moniker dBerrie, have become staples of deejays’ sets worldwide.

Berrie continues to tour globally, holding residencies at Pacha (New York), Liv (Miami), and Playhouse (Los Angeles). He has performed at a bevy of international festivals including Planetlove WKD Festival (Ireland) and Umagination (Croatia) and has headlined Dayglow throughout the United States.
