About Tristan D:

It all started back in ‘95 when Tristan, still a youngster himself, first started tuning into pirate radio stations from his home in Brighton, religiously soaking up the electric sounds of Brit A-listers Graham Gold, Judge Jules, Danny Rampling and many more. Tristan soon became hooked on the pumping underground sound of house music and before long decided that this would, and could be his future- since his early youth, all he wanted was to be a DJ.

Tristan set his DJ career into motion at a remarkably ripe age of 14 when he decided to start promoting his own club nights called Twisted. He kicked off the Twisted parties in a number of underground clubs in Brighton and London and soon secured a reputation as a talented young DJ and promoter. A few years later, at the still very young age of 18, Tristan landed a residency at his favorite London club night Peach @ KOKO, where he frequently shared the decks with the talented Eddie Halliwell, Simon Patterson, Markus Schulz & many more. Soon after, he also began playing regularly for Serious @ The Cross, London

Tristan’s long term partnership with BBC Radio 1 DJ Judge Jules has kept him at the forefront of the industry. Working full-time alongside a legend in dance music, Tristan has managed to remain on the cutting edge of music production, and gets to spend his summers with Judge Jules hosting one of Ibiza’s busiest club nights, Judgement Sundays @ Eden in San Antonio.

Tristan’s DJing has taken him all around the world playing with world renowned DJs including Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk & many more. His style ranges from the Teky Maximal side of backroom house up to the more banging uplifting Trance.

As a producer, Tristan found success from the get-go. His collaboration with diffused music genius Anthony Brooks in 2006 got signed to Big In Ibiza records, taking them to the prestigious Miami WMC and catapulting Tristan into stardom in the studio. Since then Tristan has had countless tunes played on BBC Radio 1 and remixes signed to some of the worlds biggest record labels including Ministry of Sound (Data Records), Spinnin and High Contrast.

Tristan’s talent doesn’t stop there though. Tristan is also in the midst of a progressing Radio career; he has hosted shows on Ministry Of Sound radio, Fuzion FM & Sunshine Live in Germany.

Tristan’s diversity and skills behind the decks have made him one of the UK’s most versatile and hardworking DJs.

Whether he’s playing a 20,000 capacity arena or a 200 capacity club, he rocks it every time bringing every ounce of energy to his sets and taking his crowds on a sonic journey into the best sounds dance music has to offer.

This summer you can catch Tristan every week @ Judgement Sundays at Eden, Ibiza as well as at London’s famous Gallery nights @ Ministry Of Sound. Tristan also promotes his monthly club in London, remaining one of the top promoters in the city.

COMMUNITY: Mat Zo Embarks On His Biggest Tour of North America To Coincide with ‘The Bipolar EP’ Out On February 13

Mat Zo Embarks On His Biggest Tour of North America
10-Dates To Coincide with ‘The Bipolar EP’

(Anjunabeats / February 13)

With his diverse four-track ‘The Bipolar EP‘  priming itself for release, Anjunabeats rising star Mat Zo is embarking on his biggest tour of North America yet – including dates at San Francisco’s Ruby Skye, Toronto’s Guvernment, Denver’s Beta and Chicago’s Sound Bar. The 10-date tour will come to an end at Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy Miami party on Bayfront Park, site of the Ultra Music Festival, on Thursday, March 22 alongside Above & Beyond, Arty, Boom Jinx and Jaytech [#GroupTherapyMiami].

With Skrillex, Axwell, Radio 1 and MTV Dance all supporting his recent anthem “Mozart” (with Arty), the fast rising Mat Zo returns with an eclectic four-track blast of his innovative talents – each track a distinct dancefloor juggernaut in its own right.

With recent eclectic sets at events like the Bugged Out! Weekender and his drum & bass material as MRZO and MRSA for Hospital Records supported by the likes of Camo & Crooked, Zo is fast asserting himself as unique electronic talent; something ‘The Bipolar EP’ reinforces further by blending influences as varied as Daft Punk, Diplo, Deadmau5 and even classic US house and twisting them into bold big room sounds.

Surging the raw funk of Daft Punk at their punkiest against the deeply musical strains that Zo is renowned for, the lead track “Bipolar” lives up to its name by flitting between clicky grooves, electro synth stabs and subtle melodic waves in devastating dancefloor fashion.

A homage to Mat’s love of classic dance across the 90s and early noughties, “It’s Yours” is as inventive take on Jon Cutler & E-Man’s funky house classic “It’s Yours”. Already a big room anthem from Mat’s recent sets at Bugged Out! Weekender and TATW400 in Beirut, “It’s Yours” builds waves of infectious melodic funk into a climatic drop.

A bridge between the carnival sounds of acts like Diplo and Major Lazer and the stadium filling trance world, “Ring On It” is an experimental bleep and bass-heavy explosion of carnival vibes – built around a subtle but undeniably epic riff.

Named after the world famous cellist, closing track “Yoyo Ma” is a driving melodic tech odyssey that draws influences from Eric Prydz’s most epic Pryda work, big room techno and the classier end of trance.

Celebrating the ‘The Bipolar EP,’ Mat has also released an hour long mix of progressive grooves, quirky mash-ups and the innovative tracks from EP itself.

COMMUNITY: Above & Beyond Announce #GroupTherapyMiami with Arty, Mat Zo, Jaytech and Boom Jinx

Above & Beyond 
Announce #GroupTherapyMiami
with Arty, Mat Zo, Jaytech and Boom Jinx
 
Miami Music Week 2012
Thursday, March 22nd
Bayfront Park Amphitheatre
 
Above & Beyond: Paavo Siljamäki, Tony McGuinness, and Jono Grant
 
Above & Beyond are bringing the Group Therapy experience to Miami Music Week 2012 with a special event at the legendary Bayfront Park Amphitheatre on Thursday March 22.
 
Joining Above & Beyond will be an all-star quartet of producers from their scene-leading Anjunabeats label – Mat Zo, Arty, Jaytech and Boom Jinx. Covering the full spectrum of the Anjunabeats sound, the event runs from 5pm to 11pm EST.
 
21 year old Arty should need no introduction having taken the trance and house worlds by storm in the past 18 months – melding them together in a way not seen before. 2011 saw him rise to #25 in the DJMag Top 100 poll, collaborate with Dirty South, perform NYE in New York City for a sold-out crowd of 10,000 revelers, plus gain support from the likes of Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren, Swedish House Mafia, and of course, Avicii.
 
Next to take on Miami is Anjunabeats’ very own ‘”Superman” Mat Zo, also just 21 years of age.  He has consistently cemented a reputation as one of the label’s most prolific, innovative and forward-thinking artists – with recent hits including “Bipolar”, the Skrillex-supported “Mozart” (with Arty) and “Superman” itself. The only man to top the Beatport trance and drum & bass charts simultaneously, Zo is currently working on his hugely anticipated debut artist album, which is primed to showcase his maverick talents in full effect.
 
Having topped the iTunes Dance Album Chart for two years running with his Anjunadeep 02 & 03 compilations, rising Australian DJ Jaytech is again mixing Anjunadeep 04 this coming February and has a new artist album planned for the summer. Jaytech is a man on a mission and the perfect choice to warm up a buzzing #GroupTherapyMiami crowd.
 
Finally, also joining this colossal Group Therapy Miami line up is Norwegian uber-producer Boom Jinx, one of Anjunabeats’ most talented, prolific and eclectic artists, with recent work ranging from the massive vocal trance anthem “Phoenix From The Flames” to deep progressive gem “Pieces Of The Puzzle” with Soundprank.
 
Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy show is centered around their critically acclaimed second artist album (“the biggest artist album of the year” – Mixmag), which features Billboard Dance hits like “Sun & Moon” and “Thing Called Love” – as well as their forthcoming single “Love Is Not Enough”. The show’s production takes the DJ set up into the realm of concert theatre, with emotive visuals, live video messaging from the band and a story-telling theme, combining to create a unique dancefloor experience for fans.
 
Check out the teaser of the emotional, cinematic official music video for “Love Is Not Enough” here.

 
Above & Beyond and their Anjunabeats label have also been nominated for a host of awards in the IDMA Final Ballot – which will be announced during Miami music week. Above & Beyond have been nominated for Best European DJ and Best Artist (Group), with their huge “Sun & Moon” anthem in the Best Trance Track category and Anjunabeats in the Best Label category. Completing their nominations is Trance Around The World, which is in the running for the Best Radio Mix Show. You can vote here.
 
The #GroupTherapyMiami event forms part of the Ultra Live series. Tickets are on sale here.
 
Above & Beyond is currently on the road for Part 1 of their Group Therapy North American Tour. Group Therapy Part 2 coming May & June 2012 – Dates To Be Announced! Check www.aboveandbeyond.nu for updates.
