First up will see Radio 1 maestro and Gatecrasher stalwart JUDGE JULES back behind the decks. Having a long standing DJ career which has seen him notch up hundreds of thousands of miles, millions of spins of the decks and countless gigs in far flung destinations, Jules has always had a special relationship with the Gatecrasher crowd after becoming a resident with the iconic clubbing brand in the late 90s. To this day Judge Jules still remains one of the most popular figures in dance music with his ability to pull a crowd, shake them up and leave them wanting more and we can’t wait to have him back to blow the crowd away this Bank Holiday weekend.
Judge Jules commented:
"Gatecrasher has occupied a significant place in my heart since I became resident there in the late 90s. there was simply no place like it in terms of atmosphere and a unique, musically-knowledgeable crowd. Now after sixteen years, it’s proved its credentials by weathering every clubland storm, coming out stronger and just as relevant as ever"
Next Up will see MATT HARDWICK who’s illustrious association with the global phenomenon that is Gatecrasher has been well documented and has seen him play many of the greatest events the world of clubbing has to offer. An internationally recognised star in his own right, Matt has also played to clubbers all over the world and today his production career has really come to the fore with his first two productions with trancetastic duo Smith & Pledger winning vast support from the likes of Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten and many more. Although his residency ceased with in 2004, Matt still plays a pivotal role in the Gatecrasher fold and is always a welcome addition to any crasher line up.
Credited with shaping the Trance scene we know today, Gatecrasher welcome back SCOTT BOND, a DJ who earned the title of the ‘World’s Finest Resident’ during his much acclaimed Gatecrasher residency, as voted for by readers the world over in the Mixmag dance music awards. His musical ability has wowed crowds all over the globe and has seen him mix over 10 Gatecrasher albums selling a total of over 1 million copies worldwide, which is why there is no better man to mix our newest release and join us at Gatecrasher Trance Anthems 1993-2009.
Aside from the original Gatecrasher residents, Gatecrasher have always been credited with being at the forefront of the dance music scene and we welcome DANIEL KANDI for his debut behind the Crasher decks this Bank Holiday Weekend. Described as ‘very hot at the moment’ by Armin van Buuren, Kandi is undoubtedly one of the biggest upcoming trance producers to emerge from Europe. His very first demo was quickly signed by Above & Beyond to much acclaimed trance label Anjunabeats, charted high in various outlets and canned by the likes of Armin van Buuren, Judge Jules and Above & Beyond. Besides this his DJ career has really taken off and his DJ gigs have seen him play to 7000 trance lovers in Poland, and future gigs will see him travelling to exotic locations such as Australia, France, Ukraine, India, Norway and many more and we can’t wait to give him a big Gatecrasher welcome at Gatecrasher Seven.
