His musical career started in 1995.He has been named number one in the prestigious DJ MAG Top 100 poll four times in a row, from 2007 till 2010 and for the 5th time in 2012. He's the first DJ in the history of the DJ Magazine to achieve that and an indication of his prolific output over more than 14 years he\u2019s been dj\u2019ing and producing. Being the official World\u2019s Most Popular DJ is just one of his many achievements, but the driving force behind his success is an overriding passion for electronic dance music.2008 began with the success that the number one DJ seems to attract; he was awarded with the prestigious Buma Cultuur Pop Award in January. This was followed by being voted as the Best Trance Artist in the Beatport Music Awards in March; judged on the musician\u2019s artistic achievements, national and international success, it is evident that Armin van Buuren has become one of the decade\u2019s most influential trance acts.Even a basic list of recent successes reads like a lifetime of work: \u2018Best Album\u2019 for artist album \u2018Shivers\u2019 at both the Dutch Release Dance Awards and the prestigious Edison Awards; \u2018Best Compilation\u2019 for \u2018A State Of Trance\u2019, in 2006, claiming the \u2018Best European DJ\u2019 award in 2007 and \u2018Best Mix Radio Show\u2019 at the Miami Winter Music Conference in 2006 and 2007, for radio show \u2018A State Of Trance\u2019 \u2013 now broadcasting on a massive 40 FM stations as well as satellite and internet radio, with over 26 million listeners a week; a 5th year residency in Ibiza at Amnesia and over 50,000 downloads every week from podcasting high end chart-bothering positions all over the world for singles, albums and compilations , with single \u201cRush Hour\u201d used as the theme tune to the UEFA European Youth Championship; the #1 entry in the Dutch album charts with his artist album \u2018Imagine\u2019, the #1 entry of the DVD registration of \u2018Armin Only \u2018 Imagine\u2019 \u2013 the landmarks just keep coming!The 350th episode and the 7th year of the hit radio show \u2018A State of Trance\u2019 was celebrated in May 2008 with an eight hour live broadcast from Antwerp in Belgium to over 40 radio stations internationally. Fans were invited to a free party with a line up that had been voted for by the show\u2019s listeners; another example of the importance the DJ places on the satisfaction of his fans. Considering the popularity of the radio show the introduction of \u2018A State of Trance Podcast\u2019 was a natural progression. The weekly podcasts which contain highlights and Armin\u2019s favourite tracks from the previous episode ensure that trance lovers across the world will never miss another episode!Sold-out shows for Armin Only in 2005 and 2006 created eager anticipation of the third edition, which kicked off in a sold-out Jaarbeurs in Utrecht in 2008; over 16,000 fans attended and were enthralled by the DJ\u2019s nine hour set. The theme of the night was \u2018Imagine\u2019, described by Armin as \u201cthe celebration of our sensations both in life and in clubland.\u201d Fans all around the world should not despair, as \u2018Armin Only\u2019 tour dates have also been set for Romania, Poland, Belgium and Australia; the DJ will also be touring in England, Scotland, Ibiza, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, and the USA, with expected dates in, for an example, the Czech Republic.Born in Leiden, Holland (on December 25, 1976) to a musical family, Armin indulged his passion for music from a young age. He spent all the money he earned with his paper round on records. His mum won a computer when he was 10, gaining Armin\u2019s interest. \u201cSo as a little nerdy kid I was writing my own basic programmes, and learnt about the technology from there.\u201d He progressed from making low-profile mix tapes for friends to higher profile mixes when he discovered experimenting with different sequences on his computer through his uncle. \u201cI was so stunned by what I saw him doing on the computer, that I got addicted to creating music right there and then!\u201d\u201cI loved dance music immediately \u2013 this great rebellious sound that was so different to the \u2018beautiful\u2019 songs of the years before\u201d. Armin cites electronic pioneer Jean Michel Jarre as a major influence (famed for his awesome visuals as well as his groundbreaking synth sounds), as well as Dutch producer Ben Liebrand, who later mentored him in his mixing and producing.In the early days, Armin thought it was wise to have something extra in case the DJ\u2019ing didn\u2019t work out. So he studied for a law degree. The final year of his course was inevitably stretched as he juggled his studies with his increasingly hectic schedule; his rise to fame included lots of productions and remixes, as well as playing out to packed clubs every weekend. It took him three years to graduate, but his determination made him succeed!Armin\u2019s own productions have all made a huge impact and quickly gain worldwide acclaim; his latest artist album titled \u2018Imagine\u2019 entered the Dutch Album Top 100 Chart at number one; this is the first time a dance producer has ever accomplished such a feat in the history of Dutch music. The first single to be taken from this album, \u2018Going Wrong\u2019 with DJ Shah featuring Chris Jones, entered the Dutch Singles Chart at number five. The \u2018Armin Only DVD\u2019 was also released and reached the acclaimed number one spot in its second week. His back catalogue includes Blue Fear, Communication, Sound of Goodbye, Shivers, Rush Hour, Burned With Desire, Exhale, Love You More, This World Is Watching Me, and Yet Another Day. While the remix offers flood in, Armin only takes on tracks that he really loves. He uses exactly the same criteria for his compilations, meaning that every release from Armin or his long-running Armind label is a bone fide stormer that\u2019s earned its place. His output includes tracks for the cult TV series 24, and the likes of Motorcycle\u2019s As The Rush Comes.Armin is a dedicated trance lover, but isn\u2019t imprisoned by a single genre, saying \u201cWhat makes trance work so well is that it doesn\u2019t stick to one style, and can incorporate electro, minimal, whatever it likes.\u201d His desire to showcase more of the great music he hears, along with the number of people sending him tracks they wanted to release, led to the obvious step of starting his own label, Armada, in 2003.The label is a joint venture between Armin, Maykel Piron (former head of A&R for Warner Music) and David Lewis, who'd previously managed Armin. \"What we wanted was a company that could offer everything for an artist: representation, a booking agency, and a record company. Artists can choose full management, or to just release a record or play out at gigs. Armada lets the artists choose what they want without telling them what to do\".Armin is now a fully-fledged artist in his own right, having made his songwriting debut on his album, the award-winning Shivers; The events continue to get bigger and bigger, and Armin regularly headlines the likes of Sensation White, Global Gathering, Dance Valley, ZoukOut, Mysteryland, Coachella, Beats In Brazil, Trance Energy, Fort Dance, Summer Days \u2013 basically whether you\u2019re in Australia, Russia, the Middle East, the US or Europe, you can catch Armin van Buuren at a club or festival near you!\"This is just what I really want,\" says Armin. \"It\u2019s not just love for music, it\u2019s my passion. It goes beyond liking, and beyond a hobby, it\u2019s about a way of living. Music is essential to my life\u201d.","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/6142_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"6451","name":"Dash Berlin","bio":"Dash Berlin is the future. Dash Berlin is a true DJ at heart with a profound passion for the comprehensive culture of dance music. He is often described as an invigorating and charismatic newcomer, with the unique ability to leave a long-lasting impression upon his audience well after the night is over. Dash is one of those rare individuals that seems to understand the unwritten laws of the nightclub by nature. He keeps his ever expanding, nocturnal following alert, ecstatic and craving for more, with remarkable precision and skill. One could easily mistake him for a superstar deejay. However, the truth remains that Dash Berlin views the world through the same eyes as his public. \"It's virtually impossible to make progress without the continuing support of the people\", he humbly said. Dash Berlin, was born as Jeff X. Sutorius, in November 1979, in The Hague, the Netherlands. A family with wide musical tastes surrounded him and because of his late father, who was a distinguished drummer in a jazz band; Dash became acquainted with the typical marks of rhythmic music at a very young age. While still at high school, he became a devoted fan of electronic music, regularly enjoying mix tapes that his older sister brought home from the clubs she worked at as a professional dancer. In his late teens, Dash Berlin started working at a record shop and became a dedicated vinyl collector with a fascination for melodic, synthesized house music, subsequently known as \"Trance\". Inspired by pioneering figures such as; Sven V\u00e4th, Oliver Lieb and Sander Kleinenberg, he slowly but surely started to develop his own innovative style of mixing and producing. His hidden work ethic seemed not to be about producing more, but rather less and differently. It is this vision that still sets him apart in a crowded and highly competitive scene. Propelled by his passion, he literally performed everywhere, from nine-hour long gigs in shopping malls to the notorious illegal Dutch warehouse parties. During his set on the world famous Love Parade, Dash decided to incorporate the word 'Berlin' in his artist name. \"It's an ode to a metropolis and her engaging, urban landscape,\" he said, \"Where I have seen more then a million people dancing on the streets, in the in the spirit of an ever-evolving Europe\". In early 2006, he teamed up with fellow producers and close friends, Molijn & Kalberg, who were regular customers at his record shop. \"These guys are amazing visionaries and astonishing studio wizards, they are the foundation of my sound\" Dash remarked, \"I still learn from them every day\". Together they designed an ambitious and unprecedented new sound of Trance, quickly labeled as the \"Dash Berlin Sound\". Futuristic, scintillating, but above all, moving and emotive music that relates to the universal dance floor experience, shared by innumerable music fans from multifarious cultures around the globe. Although a vigorous believer in political awareness, the message of Dash Berlin is simple; \"It's all about having a good time again,\" he stated, \"The art of celebrating life resonates inside of everyone\". In 2007, none other than Armin van Buuren revealed his newfound discovery to the world and featured Dash Berlin's debut record \"Till The Sky Falls Down\" on his legendary 'Universal Religion' album. The track became one of the most memorable, global anthems that year and remains one of the cultivated blueprints of the new Trance renaissance. The black & white music video that complimented the radio mix was shot in the heart of Berlin proper. The clip grew to be a genuine labor of love, using the latest in digital cinematography, and successfully avoided the typical clich\u00e9s of contemporary dance music videos. In the beginning of 2009, under the mighty wings of Armada Music, plans emerged to expand the Dash Berlin universe with his very own label called 'Aropa'. It represents an eclectic high-quality outlet for Dash Berlin's avant-garde productions and collaborations. The label will also be a solid foundation for rising talent and established like-minded artists. \"The Aropa brand holds a deeper connotation too\", Dash revealed, \"It also stands for the axiom of sharing art, inspiration and creativity\". The first release is the monster anthem \"Man On The Run\", which is a prolific collaboration with fellow Armada artists Cerf, Mitiska & Jaren. The track sky rocketed to the top of the international Trance charts and received a prestigious nomination for 'Best Trance Track' at the annual Trance Awards. October 2009 brought the global release of Dash Berlin's critically acclaimed debut album: \"The New Daylight\". Besides being a varied collection of styles, it also features instant classics such as: \"Till The Sky Falls Down\", \"Man On The Run\", \"Waiting\" and \"Never Cry Again\". 2009 ended with a reverberating bang, when listeners voted for a large number of Dash Berlin tracks and remixes in the 'A.S.O.T. End Of Year 250'. With \"Man On The Run\" standing out at number 5, the anthemic \"Waiting\" even went neck-and-neck with number one, ending at a respectable second place as the A.S.O.T. Tune Of The Year. 2010 promises to be another momentous year for Dash Berlin. In January, his 'New Daylight 2010 World Tour' kicked off in Australia and due to an overwhelming public demand, the \"Flying Dutchman\" is scheduled to jet to every corner of the world. From the hottest nightclubs to festivals with crowds numbering in the thousands, Dash connects with his audiences in a magical way that has spawned a worldwide following. This following is backed by a massive online presence through Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and other social networking platforms. His dedicated fans actively vote for him when it matters the most. This loyal support already resulted in an astonishing number 20 DJ List position early in the year. It also gained him honorable spots on the 'Trance.nu Future Stage' at Trance Energy and the A.S.O.T. 450 Celebration, which are two of the largest and most essential Trance events in the world. Last years voting rewarded him with an esteemed nomination for 'Best Break Through Artist', this year Dash Berlin was nominated an astonishing three times at the International Dance Music Awards. In February, Dash raised the bar with a pioneering 42-minute long 'Flashback' YouTube video mix, which received more than a hundred thousand views within a few weeks after uploading. Other 'Dash Berlin TV' videos are breaking records as well, with millions of views from all over the planet. With the creation and release of a free Dash Berlin iPhone app, the hard working deejay reaffirms his forward-thinking multimedia mindset. In March 2010, after mixing various popular Armada compilations, Dash Berlin released his very first official and long-awaited mix album aptly named 'United Destination'. This double-CD is a reflection of his recent gigs with a top selection of tracks straight from his record bag into two seamless deejay mixes. Stay tuned for much more; hence Dash Berlin is the future\u2026","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/6451_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

Markus reached out through the airwaves to meet more people and touch their lives.His stunning second artist album, Progression, was a cumulation of these experiences, and offers listeners a slice of his trademark of dark, melodic trance alongside beautiful chilled tracks, guitars, and sublime vocals. Says Markus: \u201cProgression was conceived in the summer, whereas the debut album was done and released in winter, so Progression is less dark, and more influenced by sunny days in Miami. \u2018Trinidad to Miami\u2019 was actually written while I was flying over the ocean with the sun shining on the water, and encapsulates that feeling of optimism and happiness.\u201dWhile some artists might find it hectic putting together an album with so much going on, Markus thrives on the inspiration he finds in his two bases \u2013 Miami and Berlin \u2013 and gigs everywhere in between. \u201cI can't do one without the other - playing for the crowd makes me excited and gives me ideas for getting into the studio. When I\u2019m in the studio, I can\u2019t wait to play out what I\u2019m making and seeing people react to it \u2013 the processes feed off each other.\"\"When I grew up listening to music it had a huge influence on me, and made me who I am, so when I make my own music I do it with the listener in mind and try and recreate that one on one feeling I\u2019ve always had. It\u2019s something that gets you through hard times, is a soundtrack to good times, and touches you in a unique way.\"2008 kicked off with the release of his fourth compilation for Armada Music, \u2018Amsterdam \u201808\u2019, and Markus couldn\u2019t be happier about its origins \u2013 Amsterdam is his spiritual home thanks to the overwhelming passion of the people resident there. \u201cI always choose cities that are dear tome for my annual mix compilation\u201d says Markus. \u201cI just love Amsterdam, I feel a real connection there \u2013 my friends there are like my family. The people of Holland were one of the first to embrace and accept me and my sound, so it was the natural choice to do the 08 mix there.\u201d2008 was set to bring more dates in Australia, as well as Asia and South America. His \u2018Progression\u2019 World Tour was a big success. Markus: \u201cI have been fortunate to meet some truly outstanding fans in these places who have supported me so much over the past few years - knowing that they will be there front and centre each time I come into town is a cool feeling.\u201dWith no plans for slowing down anytime soon, Markus just might meet the world after all.","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/10748_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"10701","name":"Sasha","bio":"There are currently several artists using the name Sasha:1) Sasha, born Alexander Coe (born September 4, 1969), is a Welsh DJ and record producer. Late Night Tales Presents Sasha: Scene Delete was released in April 2006. He is also known for partnering with English DJ, John Digweed, as Sasha + Digweed. The pair released several mix albums together, including the Northern Exposure series (released between 1996 and 2001). They also released one of the all time best selling mix albums, The Renaissance Mix Collection part 1, in 1994. Sasha also released two Global Underground solo mix CDs, San Francisco (GU009) and Ibiza (GU013), which are considered classics of the progressive house genre.In 2002 he released his first solo LP, Airdrawndagger, a result of collaboration with Charlie May and Junkie XL, the album also featured a guest appearance from James Holden. The album enjoyed excellent reviews upon its release, and recently a wave of quality remixes by various producers has re-kindled interest in Sasha's production work. 2004 saw the release of Involver, his third in the Global Underground series. This mix album differed from previous albums in that each track was completely reproduced in the studio, as opposed to simply being blended together.More recently, in 2005, Sasha began moving away from mixing with records and CDs in favor of a new approach with computer software and a dedicated controller for his live sets. With the sequencing\/mixing software Ableton Live and a custom controller that Sasha helped to design, he is able to use mixing techniques that are difficult or impossible with conventional methods, including mixing together many sources at once, adjusting pitch and tempo of sources independently, and cutting up and rearranging songs. His most recent mixed CD, Fundacion, was recorded using the Ableton Live software and the album bears the name of his monthly residency nights in both New York and Los Angeles.http:\/\/www.djsasha.com2) a hardcore\/screamo band from San Diego, CA, active in the early 2000's.

{"key":"9850","name":"Gareth Emery","bio":"Ranked at number 7 in the world in the 2010 DJ Mag Top 100 Poll (up from number 23 in 2008 and number 9 in 2009) and tipped by both Paul van Dyk and Ferry Corsten as a future star, Gareth Emery is well on his way to becoming a fully paid up member of the global DJ elite. His podcast (The Gareth Emery Podcast) has fans all around the world and is regarded as one of the most consistent and exciting podcasts around. In 2009, Gareth Emery launched his own label - Garuda and has released tracks such as Exposure, Metropolis etc. Gareth Emery also delivers with his unique remixes. The highlight so far being the remix of Oceanlab's Lonely Girl featured in the Oceanlab Remixed album (June 09). \u201cBoring DJs be very afraid: Gareth Emery is about to kick your arse\u201d. So said Mixmag, when in 2002, they took the bold step of predicting that a virtually unknown 22 year-old would rise to become a major dance music star. However, six years later, it\u2019s likely that even their expectations have been well surpassed. His current tour diary reads like the departure board at London\u2019s Heathrow Airport. Desert island raves in Indonesia and snow-drenched mountains in Vancouver sit alongside major global events like San Francisco\u2019s iconic Love Fest and Holland\u2019s 30,000 strong Trance Energy. The likes of Asian superclub Zouk and Bondi Beach in Sydney complete the picture: in short, you\u2019ll find Gareth at a mouth-watering, hand-picked selection of the planet\u2019s coolest clubs and events, including UK super brands like Ministry of Sound and Gatecrasher.When not on tour, he\u2019s kept rakishly busy in his Cambridgeshire studio as one of the scene\u2019s most in-demand producers and remixes. If you\u2019re not familiar with anthems like \u2018More Than Anything\u2019, \u2018Formentera What\u2019 or his seminal classic \u2018Mistral\u2019, you\u2019re probably a little out of touch with the modern dance scene, but suffice to say that Tiesto, Oakenfold, Ferry Corsten and Judge Jules are all big fans, and Paul van Dyk and Armin van Buuren liked his work so much that they both commissioned him to work on their respective labels (Vandit \/ Armind). However, the majority of his music is still released on his Five AM imprint, (described by DJ Mag as \u2018the most consistent trance label in the world\u2019), where he\u2019s a co-owner and A&R. Whatever the label, one thing that\u2019s clear is that Gareth Emery stamps his hallmark of quality on a record, people listen.Always ahead of the game, Gareth was the one of the first leading DJs to embrace podcasting when he started his fortnightly radio show The Gareth Emery Podcast in early 2006. The show become an overnight success, immediately becoming an essential download for savvy dance music fans, and its widely imitated format has since helped to explode the popularity of dance music podcasts. It was also nominated for a Miami WMC IDMA Award for \u2018Best Podcast\u2019 along with Roger Sanchez and Pete Tong in 2007.But ultimately, it\u2019s all about the music, and that\u2019s where Gareth Emery really stands out. He\u2019s one of a kind: a true individual with his own unique sound that falls somewhere between house, progressive and trance, but always remains focussed on melody and groove. It\u2019s music for the heart, the soul, but ultimately, the dancefloor. He\u2019s accessible but not commercial; credible but not obscure, and that\u2019s why dance music fans the world over can\u2019t get enough of him right now. His 2008 plans include a series of his own events (broadcast on the Podcast, of course), two new mix compilations, and perhaps, just perhaps, that long awaited debut artist album. Whatever the case, one thing is for sure: those boring DJs need to be even more afraid than ever.","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/9850_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}
