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: Holland, but he’s a citizen of the world

Style: Energetic

Famous Tracks: Put Your Hands Up for Detroit, Let Me Think About It, Praise You 2009, New Life, Back & Forth

Best Known For: Getting the world to put their hands up for Detroit. Always being himself.

DJ Mag Rank: 21

When Fedde asked the world to put their hands up for Detroit, no one could have guessed how much the motor city would need it in the years to come. From immense popularity in his native Holland to becoming a self-proclaimed world citizen, the Flamingo Recordings star has steadily climbed the DJ Mag poll every year since he entered. With mainstream appeal, crazy energy and a style all his own, Fedde is a must see whether you’re an EDM fan, a casual clubber or just looking for a good time.

 

Bio


2009 has been a truly phenomenal year for Dutch artist Fedde le Grand. With a glittering career that includes worldwide number ones, packed arenas, throbbing dance floors, A-list collaborations, a raft of international awards and a debut artist album ‘Output’ that hit over 60 countries worldwide, it’s been a year that has cemented his reputation as one of the most forward-thinking, in-demand, creative forces in global music.

His parties have been rocking the Netherlands since 2001; his label Flamingo Recordings has been pushing its unique sound since 2004; and then in 2006 Put your hands up for Detroit full on exploded. The track hit No 1 in the UK, Spain, Russia, Finland and Bulgaria; won Best Underground House Track and Best Breaks/Electro Track at the IMDA 2007, Club Banger Of The Year at the 6th Annual Club Awards in Miami 2008 and secured Fedde the fiercely fought over Best Breakthrough Solo Artist gong at the IMDA 2007.

But though this may have been an impressive ‘beginning’, it was just that – a beginning. There was more to come from le Grand and the world was about to sit up and take notice of the Dutchman. Let Me Think About It, The Creeps and 3 Minutes to Explain all followed, setting club-land on fire and stamping Fedde’s name all over the global music charts. There was nobody anywhere that fell short of Fedde’s magic – including Grammy Award-winning Black Eyed Peas front man Will.i.am, international electronic godfather Fatboy Slim and Madonna – need we go on? That the Queen of Pop should have picked up on Fedde came as no surprise to anyone with one eye on his meteoric career. After using Put your hands up to promote her Sticky and Sweet tour, she then requested Fedde’s remix skills for her global smash hit Give It 2 Me.

The Fedde le Grand bow may well seem over-laden with strings but he added yet another as F.L.G. Since the early days his more stripped-down production has won him an elite group of fans, allowing him to experiment with his darker, more minimal tech-house side. Tracks like Take No Shh, Aah Yeah and Just Trippin’ have already done the business and 2009 brought with it three more releases – F1, Amplified and Pink Bird – confirming his position as one of the most versatile producers of our times and a true master of both the underground and over ground sounds.

Tours taking in every continent have been a major feature of Fedde’s career. North America, South, Australasia and the Far East, Europe – nations have capitulated under his mastery of beats and his sheer presence on the dance floor. Whether it’s as the uplifting Fedde le Grand playing in front of tens of thousands in A-list venues and stadium arenas, or stripped back and bare as F.L.G. in more intimate surroundings, the le Grand express shows absolutely no signs of slowing down – if anything the momentum is gaining. In fact, if you love Fedde le Grand or Club Glow enough to sit and read this bio, we’ll give you free drinks! The first person to email ravi@clubglow.com will receive a $50 tab at this event! 2009 saw him put the proverbial cherry on the cake with a dominant season in Ibiza as lord of the world’s most famous venue Pacha Ibiza, heralding a new era of party hedonism with his flagship event Fedde le Grand presents Flamingo Nights: New Life.

There aren’t many artists who can top that – of course Fedde being the exception to almost every rule, there was yet more to come in the shape of his eagerly awaited debut artist long player, Output.

Output smashed all preconceptions of just how high the Dutchman can go. Drawing inspiration from hip-hop, funk and electronic dance – and working with Rob Birch (Stereo MCs), Will.i.am, Mr. V (NYC), Mitch Crown, Ida Corr, Camille Jones and Andy & Dorothy Sherman, Fedde produced a body of work that set the planet on fire. A monster of an album, Output laid waste to the notion of a DJ/producer and introduced the world at large to Fedde the pure artist.

And an artist is exactly what Fedde le Grand is, in the truest sense of the world. The passion, integrity and sheer weight of individuality and originality that he brings to the table sees him take his place as one of the most influential electronic pioneers of modern times. Only one-question remains – if this is what Fedde le Grand has achieved so far, what more is there to come? We can only sit, wonder and wait with baited breath…
