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: Chris Lake New Single “Build Up” + Upcoming Tour Dates

Chris Lake New Single “Build Up”
From His Highly Anticipated New Album
Upcoming Tour Dates
Chris Lake – Build Up (Ultra Records) OFFICIAL TEASER

Chris Lake Photo

Following the success of his debut single for Ultra Music, Chris Lake returns with “Build Up,” the follow-up to “Sundown” and the second single to be taken from his forthcoming album for the label.

“Build Up” epitomizes exactly why Chris Lake has been garnering so much attention of late with his huge house sound. Opening on a clipped rhythm and taut arpeggios, the distorted synth swathes open up the track as it breaks down letting the gorgeous vocal from GiTA float through the mix. Continuing to build layers of percussion and color, the lead synths burst through the track as the drum line kicks back in and the sidechained bass swells through the low end, giving it a powerful and expansive energy that is guaranteed to cause an impact on the dance floor.

Tommy Trash joins in the action with his edit. Keeping true to the vibe of the original, he pares back the synth lines allowing the streamlined rhythm and gritty bass tones to strike through the mix. Eventually he unleashes those synths in a flurry of colour and re-ignited vigour, kicking things up a gear to play out the track.

Pete Tong, a lasting champion of Lake’s music, aired the track on his Radio 1 show on Friday, and the track has been getting support from Tiesto, David Guetta, Avicii, Andi Durrant, Norman Doray & Arno Cost to name a few.

In the US, Chris has two Billboard Dance Airplay #1’s under his belt, and “Build Up” shows already signs of being the third.
