Pete Tong's career is inextricably intertwined with the history of acid house and electronic music. 2011 has been one of his busiest years to date, with Pete celebrating the 20th Anniversary of his BBC Radio 1 show and a greatly anticipated return to Pacha Ibiza for a weekly residency. In June this year he also released an excellent double mix album with Felix da Housecat entitled 'All Gone Ibiza 11.' A true legend of dance music we're delighted to welcome Pete to The Great Hall for the Together Winter Music Festival.
Death in Vegas are one of the most exciting and unique bands to ever emerge from the UK dance scene. In 2011 Death in Vegas have returned with one of the most exhilarating albums of the year, as 'Trans Love-Energies' fuses dub, psychedelic rock, techno, grunge and analogue electro to create a sound that is out of this world. Performing a full live set with Richard Fearless on vocal duties, Death in Vegas joins the outstanding lineup showcased in The West Hall.
SebastiAn has followed such an impressive path that it's hard to believe that he's only now releasing his long-awaited debut album. Alongside Justice, SebastiAn is one of the creators of the Ed Banger sound and readily defies the rules to deliver a dirty and violent kind of techno that coughs and spits. Super prolific and constantly effervescent, this musician has managed, in the space of a few years, to redefine electronic music. We are delighted to welcome him to the Together Winter Festival this November for an exclusive live performance.
John Dahlback is further testament to the theory that there must be something in Sweden's water supply when it comes to producing outstanding DJs and producers. Undoubtedly one of the worlds finest house prodigies, Dahlback landed his first record deal aged just 15 and in the ten years since has released tracks on many of the most respected labels. With a unique style that incorporates pure house through to electro, techno and progressive, John's sound is carefully considered and meticulously polished. With such a promising career ahead we wait with anticipation for his set at Alexandra Palace.
In the years since his first album back in 1999, Sébastien Leger has released more than thirty tracks on many international labels, building his reputation as a key player within the new blood of talented house and techno producers. Parallel to this, he launched his own label 'Mistakes Music' in 2007, whilst becoming more and more in demand for his remixing skills. One of France's greatest exports, Leger will be a true delicacy at the Together Winter Music Festival.
Simply put, Chris Lake is one of the world's great DJs and producers. In 2009 he gained two Billboard Dance chart airplay number 1's and undertook countless tours. 2010 saw him tour the globe and become a resident with Cream, playing Amnesia for the Deadmau5 & Friends parties. In 2011 he has continued his residency, rocking the famous Terrace all summer long. His label Rising Music continues to go from strength to strength and Together's Winter Music festival will be another great moment in his distinguished career.
Alex Metric's latest album 'Open Your Eyes' brings together the three stands of his musical outputs. Standout tracks include 'End of the World' and his soaring epic house collaboration with Steve Angello, 'Open Your Eyes'. With that said, Alex is probably best known for his outstanding remixes and superb DJ sets and with all these strings to his bow, we are in for a real treat.
Grum will also join The West Hall line-up, hot on the heels of his debut album 'Heartbeats' breaking into the top five in the US electronic music chart, winning the Best Electronic Artist of 2010 on US itunes and delivering excellent performances at Rockness, Parklife and Creamfields. Grum will feature alongside one of the UK's hottest emerging producers, remixers and DJs from the past 12 months; Russ Chimes. Starsmith, having claimed critical acclaim from Mixmag and The Guardian for his past projects, has gone on to play at various festivals this summer included Exit, The Big Chill, Rockness, with Together the next festival on his hectic schedule.
The hugely talented Jeremy Olander has caused quite a storm in the dance music world throughout the course of this year. Championed by Eric Prydz as 'the next big thing', Jeremy will feature in The Great Hall. Aged just 24, Mark Fanciulli has notched up an impressive reputation which has seen him play clubs across the world including Ministry of Sound, Set Miami, Pacha San Paolo, Avalon Los Angeles and many more. Responsible for co-running Saved Records with his brother Nic, Mark has also released on key labels such as Joris Voorn's Rejected and Josh Wink's Ovum. Get ready to witness his talent at Alexandra Palace this November.
