From:USA (LA)

Style: Electro inspired by rocking the f*ck out

Famous Tracks: I’m in the House (w/Will.i.Am.), Turbulence (w/ Lil’ John), Brrrat!, Wake Up Call, Kid Cudi – Pursuit of Happiness (Steve Aoki Remix)

Best Known For:Stage Dives, complete and utter recklessness, amazing crowd interaction, spraying champagne on everyone. Did we mention stage dives?

Steve Aoki is a must. It doesn’t matter what kind of music, venues, people, whatever that you like. He puts on one of the best live shows of any musician across any genre in the world. Straight up.

Steve Aoki’s first performance at Glow last November was possibly the most crowded Glow at Fur has ever been. The crowd was insane, the music was rocking something serious and Steve was a maniac! It was like nothing we had ever experienced. From the bouncers to the bartenders; the crowd and the entire Glow crew were speechless as Steve repeatedly jumped on top of the decks, microphone in hand, going ape sh*t, spraying champagne and diving into the crowd multiple times. Nowhere else can you find a DJ putting on a rock show like that!

From: The UK

Style: Techy, Toolroom House

Famous Tracks: Man with the Red Face, Columbian Soul, Good Times, Conscindo, Beautiful World

Best Known For: Starting the Toolroom movement. Finding time to run a label, publishing company, produce music AND DJ. Leading a new style of house music.

DJ Mag Rank: 53

If you haven’t witnessed the boss of Toolroom Records, a master of tech-house, rock a room… you’ve been missing out. All hell broke loose when Mark Knight took the decks of Lima Washington DC on 2/3/11. With Pleasurekraft, who will without question earn 2011 breakout artist of the year honors, 5/12/11 at Lima should be even bigger!

Mr. Knight is not only known for his wonderful combination of tech-house and progressive, but also his ability to seriously get down and dirty. He is a pioneer of Electronic Dance Music. With a giant grin on his face, Mr. Knight showed the people of DC a damn good time, like always.

His recent collaboration with Tiesto entitled “Beautiful World” is everywhere right now! His Toolroom label has been owning the Beatport charts. We get the best at their peaks!

As Pleasurekraft continues their ascent into the international spotlight, we can’t but worry their days as a Glow resident are numbered. Think about it. How many clubs in the world have residents with top 10 yearly tracks on Beatport, Radio 538 Dance Department episodes, Pete Tong asking for interviews and multiple gala events at WMC.

Not taking advantage of having Pleasurekraft as your resident is like starting a fist fight with a grizzly bear.

 

Bio


Mark Knight’s legacy already ranks him as a leading player in dance music culture. His rise to the forefront has been more than just gigs and remixes; his contribution to the scene via his label Toolroom Records, demonstrates abilities that supercede the glorified title of ‘DJ’.

This year, with a Grammy Nomination for work on the Black Eyed Peas’ multi-platinum album ‘The-End’, 3 of the biggest selling records on Beatport’s ‘Best Sellers List’; ‘Music Matters’ ‘Flauta Magica’ & ‘Good Times’, an IDMA nomination for his Toolroom Knights weekly radio show and a prestigious Beatport award for his single ‘Good Times’ – 2010 has most definitely been a year of colossal achievement.

So where did it all start…

In 2004, with a personal vision for house music, Mark created his own workshop for 21st century dance musicians, Toolroom Records, and with it a new way of thinking.

Since its launch, the Toolroom imprint has developed into an uncontrollable beast, celebrating success as the biggest selling label on Beatport and reaching the milestone of 100 releases in 2009 courtesy of Faithless.

As a producer, Mark has built a reputation for outstanding releases; ‘Man With The Red Face’, ‘Downpipe’, ‘Good Times’, ‘Devil Walking’, consistently topping international dance charts, and has been involved in producing tracks for leading artists, including new output from Faithless and contribution to the latest Underworld album.

And there’s more…

As a DJ, Mark holds international prominence, recognised the world over for his extended 7 hour sets, headlining festivals and clubs from Ultra Music Festival Miami to the Terrace at Space Ibiza.

In 2006, Mark’s belief and desire to inject freshness into a stale club scene, inspired him to programme his own parties, this concept became a reality with the launch of Toolroom Knights at Ministry of Sound, London in October ’06.

Having gained unrivalled success as one of THE superior club nights, Toolroom Knights has gone on to generate great global success and support with Mark headlining Toolroom residencies at Cocoon Frankfurt, Space Miami, Ministry of Sound London, Pacha New York as well as hosting Toolroom arenas at key festivals including; SW4 London, Global Gathering UK, Dance Valley Netherlands.

All in all, it’s been a BIG journey for Mark Knight, pioneering a sound and attitude that’s gained respect from fans and industry people alike hungry for the integrity of Mark’s production skills and quality of Toolroom Knights’ parties. And there’s so much more to come.

Axwell: Sat 5/7 [Glow at Fur]

GLOW Washington DC presents:

Axwell
twitter.com/axwell

Opening Set by Roberto Gonzalez
Saturday May 7, 2011

Fur Nightclub 33 Patterson St NE
Doors Open at 10pm, Ages 18+

Show Preview

From: Sweden

Style: House, uplifting, melodic, big room

Famous Tracks: In the Air, Nothing but Love, One (Swedish House Mafia), The Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition (Axwell and Dirty South Remix), Adrian Lux – Teenage Drime (Axwell Remix), Leave the World Behind, It’s True

Best Known For: Being a deep thinker. Forming 1/3 of Swedish House Mafia. Bringing house music that much closer to the American mainstream.

DJ Mag Rank: 10

Do we have to say anything at all? The man we booked for the biggest night of the year (Thanksgiving Eve) is coming back to DC nightlife for round 2! You can find pictures from the last event here.

As 1/3 of Swedish House Mafia, Axwell essentially took over the world of dance music last year with the hit song ‘One (Your Name).’ The group’s follow up, ‘Miami 2 Ibiza’ as well as Ax’s single ‘Nothing But Love For You’ and remix of ‘Teenage Crime’ have been hammered in clubs from DC to Down Under.

He and friend, producer and Mafia affiliate Dirty South were nominated for the 2011 Grammy for Best Remix with their take on The Temper Trap’s ‘Sweet Disposition.’

2011 has seen a flurry of new releases and remixes on his Axtone label. And of course, something new with Dirty South is in the pipeline!!

Bio

The king of the sun-kissed summer anthem; the mogul behind one of the hottest imprints on the planet; a superstar producer and DJ who’s never lost the giddy enthusiasm of a fledgling clubber; and one of the most successful and influential remixers of the 21st century. By anyone’s standards, Axel ‘Axwell’ Hedfors is a giant of modern-day dance music – and he’s only going to get bigger.

Axwell’s steady ascent into clubland aristocracy began when he struck crossover gold with 2004’s glorious ‘Feel The Vibe’. An unstoppably uplifting and instantly memorable track, the original version of ‘Feel The Vibe’ (featuring vocalist Errol Reid) dazzled every corner of clubland, before an overhauled version (with new vocals by Tara McDonald) gate-crashed the UK top 20. 2005’s ‘Watch The Sunrise’ (featuring Steve Edwards) proved to be another unstoppable anthem, as was his 2006 collaboration with fellow Swedish House Mafioso Steve Angello, Supermode’s ‘Tell Me Why’ (released via Ministry Of Sound, it reach #13 in the UK and #3 in the Netherlands). But it was 2007’s rave-referencing ‘I Found U’ (#6 in the UK charts) that really cemented Axwell’s status as a producer who could marry artistic innovation with strong commercial appeal – a rare thing indeed, in any genre of music. Most recently he was one of the forces behind Swedish House Mafia – One (Your Name) featuring Pharell Williams, another top ten UK hit, crashing into the summer charts at #7 and soundtracking every festival, dance event and Ibiza club night.

“I do feel pressure to maintain a certain level of success,” says Axwell. “That’s a weight that lies on my shoulders – but all that pressure comes from myself. I want every tune to be better than the last one: to sound stronger, to be phatter, to work better in a club. So it’s pressure, but it’s good pressure. It pushes me forwards, creatively.”

“For me, it’s all about asking questions of myself. Would I play this? Would I play it during peak time? Is it the phattest thing I’ve ever heard? Is it the most futuristic shit out there? I question the track – and myself – the whole time. I’ve got a good expression: the goose-bumps never lie. If you get goose-bumps during the production stage, then you’re on the right track…”

Axwell’s Midas-like touch – along with his peerless technical ability – has made him the go-to guy for artists looking to get their latest release reworked into a storming dancefloor juggernaut. Madonna, Nelly Furtado, Moby and Pharrell Williams have all come a-knockin’, while productions such as his masterful reworking of Hard-Fi’s ‘Hard To Beat’, his sublime remix of The Temper Trap’s ‘Sweet Disposition’ (along with Dirty South) and of course his unstoppable version of TV Rock’s ‘In The Air’ have gone on to become as big as – or, in many cases, bigger than – the original tracks.

Part of what makes Axwell such a sought-after producer is his dazzling stylistic agility; he can switch between house, techno and electro (and everything in-between) without even breaking a sweat.

“Axwell has an innate feel for the dancefloor,” says long-time fan Judge Jules, “but his versatility is even more impressive. Too many producers get caught in a trademark groove, becoming a prisoner of their own perceived style. Axwell’s material is so varied, but it never fails to rock – big time.”

You only have to take a look over the back catalogue of Axtone, Axwell’s much-admired label

Some might caution the readiness and command of a twenty-two year old.  They might call into question the lack of experience or credentials of such a young artist.  Yet, with Shah Munir, better known as Shahz, such questions are quickly put to rest, and caution eliminated.

His resume reads like a seasoned veteran – from being showcased at esteemed venues such as 1 Oak, Avenue Greenhouse and Marquee in New York City, catering to the A-list crowds in LA, London and Dubai to collaborating with mega-stars from DJ AM, Felix Da Housecat, Fabolous and Sean Kingston, to DJ David Berrie, Maino, Dj Chachi, Wynter Gordon and Trey Songz and having corporate clients such as Cartier and Moet Chandon.

Such international performances and collaborations, as well as his unique talent to understand and adapt to both crowd and setting has made his reputation reverent and his nightly performances unprecedented. Rest assured, this young artist is on the way to achieving great lengths in his future endeavors.
