Show Preview

From: Toronto and LA

Style: Electronica, house, trance

Famous Tracks: Contact, Hydrology, Symptoms of a Stranger, Contact w/ Deadmau5, Love Lost

Best Known For: Having arguably the most diverse support list of any producer… Armin Van Buuren, Richie Hawtin, David Guetta, Luciano, Deadmau5 and Tiesto have all spun Glenn’s music. We’re pretty sure no one else can say that.

One of the most diverse talents in electronic dance music, Glenn is cemented within the Armada family. He held a three year residency at Amnesia Ibiza and has remixed Queen, the Pet Shop Boys and the B52s. In essence, Glenn Morrison has better range than Reggie Miller, Robert Horry and Ray Allen combined. Ya, we just went there. Oh ya, he was a classical piano prodigy before the age of 13. We just wanted to throw that in there. In short, Glenn rocks!

 

Bio


Multi-talented, multi-tasking, focused and ambitious, Glenn Morrison is the archetype of the modern DJ/producer star. The 25-year-old Toronto native is as happy rocking an underground house party as he is performing at an exclusive oceanic rooftop venue; as adept at composing an international club anthem like ‘Contact’ as he is at concocting a creepy ambient soundtrack for a Nintendo game.

His name alone gets 850,000 social networking and Internet hits a month. His productions have featured on 700 compilations in the last three years. He has enjoyed the support of DJs as varied as Armin Van Buuren and Richie Hawtin, David Guetta and Luciano. For three years he was resident at the world’s best club, Ibiza’s Amnesia Club. His label Morrison Recordings has put out 95 releases, his podcast series gets 12,000 downloads a month, and he’s remixed Queen, the Pet Shop Boys and the B52s. And he is perfecting a sinuous, hooky sound that combines the eerie beauty of pure techno with light rains of melody and flashes of emotion.

In short, Glenn Morrison is one of the most dynamic and accomplished talents in electronic music today. Period.

But whether it’s producing music or playing it, versatility and passion are at the heart of what Glenn Morrison does. Above all it’s about connecting with the audience. “I love being able to elicit emotion in people,” he says.

Morrison is a difficult DJ to pigeonhole and that’s what makes him such a fascinating talent. One minute his sound is ruthlessly minimal and funky; the next it’s washed in color and vocals and emotion.

“I want to able to straddle the line between doing underground parties and underground records, and a more commercial sound,” he explains. “ I don’t ever want to be stuck in one sound.”

His has been an unusual career path. He started off as a classical pianist, a preteen prodigy, performing – and winning – competitions. Then came a life-changing encounter with electronic music.

“When I was 14, I was at a high school house party, and there was somebody in the basement with two turntables and a mixer playing techno,” says Glenn. “It was new, it was fresh, it was underground. It was something I had never heard before. And I embraced it in all of its forms.”

He discovered classic mixes by DJs like Sasha and John Digweed on the Global Underground series, got lost in Adam Beyer’s techno excursions, tripped out to Paul Oakenfold’s Goa mixes – and started buying records.

“I started DJing during the vinyl period. I was buying a lot of records. It took me a couple of months, practising in my parents’ house and it consumed my life,” he says. Soon Morrison and his friends were staging their own house parties – DJs in the basement, girls around the pool. By the time he was 17, he had talked himself into a job at Toronto’s Release Records – both a store and an underground label. And that was it. “I knew what I wanted to do.”

When DJing offers started to come in, Glenn Morrison took them. He would play anywhere, sleeping on promoters’ floors in smaller cities in Brazil and China and Eastern Europe, soaking up the vibe. “It was a great learning experience to play in the club; no one can teach you. And I wanted to completely saturate myself.”

And as a classical pianist, the move into production came naturally. He worked with fellow Canadian producer Deadmau5, then struck out alone. Everything changed in 2007 with the release of his hit ‘Contact’, an emotional, yet minimal trance record with shivers of delicious melody and a crisp, funky beat that left no dance-floor unturned. Tiësto put it on a compilation and it shot to the top of the World Dance Charts.

‘No Sudden Moves’ followed: a driving, progressive house number with compulsively funky beats galvanized by shards of metallic melody. It too topped the World Dance Charts. Glenn Morrison had arrived. He studied law at the University of Toronto and had a place to study an MBA at Harvard. But post graduate education was going to have to wait.

As a DJ, Glenn Morrison is now a major draw on the world circuit. He has played over 300 events worldwide in the last three years and has developed into a consummate DJ performer. “I love being able to play with people’s feelings, to build the night,” he says. “For me it’s about creating an experience. Starting at ten o’clock and then building the intensity.”

He is a relaxed, grounded character, driven to create. And he is as versatile a DJ as he is a producer. He will tease the crowd with minimalist deep house, throw them into raptures with his inventively twisted techno deconstruction of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, then lighten the mood with a fluffier vocal number. “When I’m DJing I feel great if other people are happy,” he says. “It’s a party at the end of the day, and it’s your job to make people have the time of their life.”

But fresh, contemporary DJ stars like Glenn Morrison know that making your own records is the way to stay in the game. And he continues to produce: recent tracks like the haunting and hypnotic ‘Green Valley’ or the lusciously emotional vocal number ‘Mine and Yours’ capture feelings and paint pictures with sound.

Production continues apace in the new mastering studio Morrison has built in Toronto. Be it sound design for video game companies like Nintendo, EA Sports, Activision or Rockstar, or his own productions, he simply doesn’t stop making and playing music. “I don’t have a life. I spend all my time making music or playing music,” says Glenn. And he looks everywhere for new influences.

Glenn was at the Grammies – but to look and learn, not see and be seen. Movie soundtracks are a major influence behind his music and his next project is to create a live band to perform the album he plans to produce. It will, he promises, be much more than a club soundtrack, much more than electronic music.

His track ‘Love Lost’, composed after a break-up with a girlfriend, is a tantalizing taster. It is an exquisite solo piano piece that sounds like the theme to a classy, romantic movie scene. Deceptively simple, without drums or electronic trickery, ‘Love Lost’ is a glimpse of the creative ambition yet to be realized. “I try to put ideas into reality. I don’t always succeed,” concludes Glenn. “But if I’m going to do it, I’m going to do it properly.”

From: George: New York, NY | Matt: Baltimore, MD

Style: George: House, electro, mash-up | Matt: house, uplifting house, tech

Best Known For: George: Taking the trendy club scenes in NY and DC by storm with his open-style of house mash-ups | Matt: With only a year and change under his belt Matt has opened for Kaskade, Avicii, Afrojack in Spain, Dirty South, Max Vangeli and David Berrie.

From NY to DC nightlife, but he didn’t have to take the Chinatown bus… George Garcia arrived at GW in 2006 on the back of a business degree, a pair of cleats and a mixer. He took no time in diving into the local house circuit. Within two years he found himself running parallel with those Chinatown buses, working residencies in NY at Azza Lounge and D’or as well as spinning here in The District. It was around that time he hung up the cleats and let the bass take over.

2009 saw George spinning everything from a Playboy fashion show to a US Tennis Association after party. He spun celebrity parties for everyone; Wimer Valderamma to Wu-Tang; Sean Kingston to Ovi. 2010 saw him spinning at Glow. It’s about time he headlined Fur!

Matt Goldman is climbing the ladder to success, escalator style. From the moment he got behind the 1s and 2s it was clear he had a natural affinity for spinning records. In just over a year he has gone from complete unknown to opening for Afrojack (in Spain), Avicii, Kaskade, Max Vangeli and David Berrie. He is the quintessential example of how combining time, a focused effort and networking can yield amazing results. He doesn’t push too hard, he lets his music do the talking. He is spinning at Glow because he comes highly recommended. We listened to his mixes, the music doesn’t lie. Matt Goldman is proof that ‘making it’ doesn’t entail guerilla promoting through facebook or shoving demos in someones face. It is the result of cool, calm and collected networking combined with intense training. You want to arrive early for this.

 

Bio

GEORGE:

Hanging up his cleats and bidding farewell to the soccer field, George Garcia has found another way to entertain and impact masses of people. George has become one of the younger, more recognized DJ’s in the scene and is not taking his pedal off the gas anytime soon. Couple together a love and appreciation for all music with an adrenaline filled desire to bring joy to people, and you pinpoint what shape his performances and have gained him recognition.

George found his relationship with music early on in life by being an active part of his family parties and being raised in an energetic, happy environment that embraced music at all times. He was first exposed to music and Latin rhythms as a child. Having his father as the main source of entertainment at parties, whether it be dancing or making sure that everyone was always on their feet, taught George to always keep the people moving. At the age of 13 George began DJing alongside friends for graduation parties, sweet sixteen events, bar mitzvahs, weddings, and house parties. As George grew older he began to perform and travel to different places, performing at private events and competitions to develop recognition for the sole purpose of providing people with a reason to move and dance.

In 2006, George made the decision to attend the George Washington University and enroll in the School of Business. By moving to Washington D.C., he embraced a new crowd, a new environment, a new scene, and a new city full of listening ears. George wanted to take advantage of this and make an impact right away. He took his first steps in D.C. by spinning at venues such as KStreet Lounge, Eyebar, Lotus, Five, and Indebleu now known as STIR. The reaction and warmth from the crowd is what first impacted George and motivated him to produce the energy that he does with his music.

With clubs in his hometown of New York such as Pacha NY, Cielo, Kiss & Fly, 1Oak & Central being his main influences, George was presented with the blueprint for an enjoyable & energetic performance. The summer of 2008 triggered the success that George has been able to have. Holding his first residencies at Azza Lounge & D’or in New York presented George with the opportunity to travel between New York & Washington to perform. That summer is when George decided to put his life-long passion of playing soccer to pursue music professionally and to fulfill his long desired dream of being an artist. DJs such as Erick Morillo, Victor Calderon, DJ AM, Robbie Rivera, DJ Berrie, Richie Santana, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, DJ Enferno, David Guetta & DJ Camilo have been among the major influences in George’s career and style. These influences, along with his love for house music, feeding off the sensation of the crowd, his Latin energy, and addiction to drums have contributed to George’s unique style that have gotten him where he is today: able to make any crowd put in front of him move.

George has provided the entertainment for events such as Playboy Swimwear’s Fashion show, Inaugural Events during the 2009 Inauguration, Buzzing 4 Change –Cancer Fundraiser, and the USTA Tennis Final after party. George has performed for artists such as Sean Paul, Sean Kingston, Busta Rhymes, Wilmer Valderrama, Clinton Portis, the Wu-Tang Clan, Antawn Jamison, Michael Jordan, Rosario Dawson, and Alexander Ovechkin. George began his career in New York City in 2008 as resident at New York hotspots Azza and D’or & currently maintains residencies at the hip & trendy lounge La Zarza, as well as Su Casa. In Washington, he maintains residencies at renowned venues such as Josephine, KStreet, Current, Spot, & Stir. Since 2008, George has performed in New York at venues such as Hudson Terrace, Room Service, Greenhouse, Su Casa, Aspen Social Club, 49 Grove, D’or, Highbar, La Zarza, Corio, Azza, Anchor Bar, Central, & Cavo. In Washington, George has performed at Josephine, Napoleon, Spot, KStreet Lounge, Park at 14th, Stir, Five, Lotus, Andalu, Current, Eyebar, Donovan House Roof Terrace Champions, Left Bank, Heaven & Hell, and many more. George has also been mentioned in newspapers such as the New York Post and the Times Ledger. Along with being a deejay, George is also one of the original founders of, EZeeDJ, established in the summer of 2009.

MATT:

At just 22 years old, Matt Goldman has quickly emerged as one of the most skilled up- and-coming DJs on the East Coast. In just over a year, this self-taught musician has made progression that is unparalleled in such a short amount of time.

Growing up in Baltimore, Maryland, it wasn’t until he started college that he was introduced to house music. In fact, he grew up playing the piano and listening to classic rock; The Beatles, The Who, and The Rolling Stones. “When I was introduced to house music my freshman year, I immediately fell in love. It was totally different than anything I had listened to throughout my entire life. I was so intrigued and I wanted to learn everything I could about the genre, so I did.”

At that time, however, he was still just a listener. “I always thought about it, but it was only a little over a year ago that I finally decided to learn how to DJ. I used a simple MIDI controller and spent countless hours each day practicing and learning the fundamentals of DJing. Fortunately, I picked it up pretty quickly, and it was clear to me early that I had a chance to be successful.”

In just one year, Matt has repeatedly landed himself performances at some of the hottest nightclubs on the East Coast; Eden (D.C.), Fur (D.C.), Mosaic (Baltimore), and monthly bookings at the famed Pacha (NYC). He has played alongside some of the biggest names in house music, including Kaskade, Dirty South, David Berrie, Avicii, and Afrojack. For Matt, it’s all about the music, and this has been the true key to his success.

In November 2010, Matt’s “November Mix”, which includes tracks from Avicii, Dirty South, Axwell, and many others, became a huge viral success, receiving over 4,000 downloads in its first week. He has been featured on blogs such as Chubby Beavers, The Campus Socialite, Vinyl Penetration, I Can Give You House, Big10HouseMafia, and Club Planet.

Don’t let the big-name selection of artists on his podcast fool you though. Matt’s real passion lies in the underground subgenres of the house music world. No set would be complete without a strong presence of unknown gems amongst the widely accepted crowd pleasers. The smoothness of his transitions is unmatched and his work ethic is tireless. There’s a lot to expect from Matt in 2011 as he brings his passion for house music to clubs all over the world, with upcoming bookings in Indiana, Barcelona, Rome, Florence, and Punta Cana.
