About John ’00’ Fleming:

John 00 Fleming is an artist who has achieved international success in a career spanning over 20 years without dishonouring his musical essence or fans. With over 10 million album sales and 30 produced mix compilations, John’s a proven musical pioneer whose essence lies in what his fans call, ‘the J00F sound’. The J00F sound is as unpretentious as the artist, and is best described as deep and textured progressively edged trance, in an electronic dance music style that is an antithesis to what is normally produced within the genre.

In an industry rife in self worship and mirror gazing, John is characterised by a passion and ability to connect audiences by injecting his unique underground musical style, and not his ego, into the mainstream vein. This connection has manifested in ten mix compilations and five singles in the UK Top 40 charts on iconic labels: Virgin, EMI and Warner Music. It has also seen him headline major events worldwide, seeing in over 10,000 appearances at the likes of Gatecrasher, Godskitchen, Ministry of Sound and Global Gathering, through to Holland’s Dance Valley, Serbia’s Exit Festival, Brazil’s Exxxperience, Australia’s Future music festivals, Belgium’s Tomorrowland, and the U.S.A’s Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC).

John’s renown lies in his desire to give back to his fans. His much lauded 2010 BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix has spawned J00F Editions, an international tour which innovatively refocuses the music onto the club and its clubbers. J00F Editions resurrects the scene of old, and reintroduces the clubbing experience to extended sets, new sounds and new artists to deliver a true musical journey devoid of fluff and predictive cliché that has quickly gained international respect, residencies and support from other leading figures such as Dave Seaman, Avalon, Passion and Ministry of sound. JOOF Editions has been a huge success.

John’s record label, J00F Recordings, and his monthly radio show, Global Trance Grooves, broadcast on iTunes, Ministry of Sound radio and DI. FM provides John another path to walk his own line. Here, he promotes rising stars in addition to giving over four million subscribed fans the latest in J00F’s inimitable sounds.

About Sander van Doorn:

Thought to be a technical and musical genius by many, Sander van Doorn is without a doubt one of the world’s most essential, influential and popular DJ/Producers in dance music today. Sander has become synonymous with excellence – both production wise and in front of the thousands he plays to, nightly. He is truly one of the strongholds in dance music. A generation defining artist, that reshapes our perception of what dance music can be and he does it all with that electrifying Sander van Doorn-smile.

With two full length albums, numerous hit-singles, remixes of the worlds biggest artists, sold out gigs in all major venues and festivals worldwide, his own successful record label ‘Doorn Records’ and a weekly radio show, it’s almost impossible not to have come across the name Sander van Doorn at least once in your life.

Every successful artist’s story reads as a fairy tale and Sander’s begins back in 2004, with the release of ‘Loaded’. The production skills he showed in his first releases literary ignited an earthquake in the international EDM community and catapulted him in the top-10 of biggest DJ’s worldwide.

Hailed and hyped by all the big names, his typical ‘SvD-style’ productions topped the club charts worldwide and resulted in his first full length album ‘Supernaturalistic’ (2008). More big names started knocking on his door and via collaborations with Robbie Williams (Close my Eyes), his renowned remix of Sia’s ‘Girl on Cocaine’ and international radio hits like; ‘Love is Darkness’ and ‘Koko’ which was premiered by Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1, reached the #1 position on Beatport, The Cool Cuts Chart and the DMC UK Buzz Chart. Sander continued to work hard and the fruits of his labour resulted in his second album ‘Eleve11’ (2011). This gained him even more stardom and allowed him to perfect his already infamous live performances.

While most artists take a short break after releasing an album, Sander kept spitting out A-class releases like ‘Chasin’, ‘Nothing Inside’, ‘What Did I Do’ with Block Party singer Kele, ‘Drink To Get Drunk’, ‘Who’s Wearing The Cap’ with Laidback Luke and ‘Kangaroo’ with youngster Julian Jordan.

In January 2013, Sander released ‘Joyenergizer’, a monster hit with a perfect balance between techy tribal intro beats, an incredible progressive melodic break and deep electro house sounds. ‘Joyenergizer’ truly offers the best of three worlds and reached the top of all Dance Charts globally; #2 in Beatport’s main chart and a #1 position in the DMC UK Buzz Chart.

In March 2013, Sander unleashed ‘TEN’ together with Mark Knight vs Underworld, which stormed directly into the top ten in Beatport’s main chart and we mustn’t forget to mention the beautiful artwork that was done by MM (Maxim from The Prodigy). Back from Miami playing at Ultra Music Festival, Sander’s new release ‘Into The Light’, collaboration with DubVision is set for April 29th.

Headlining all the big festivals around the globe, producing new tracks & with special collaborations coming up, 2013 looks like it’s going to be another big year for Sander.

The people spoke in their droves and voted for Mark, putting him in a very well deserved 2nd place in the poll!
