NORMAN DORAY

Norman Doray Norman was born in French Brittany, the place where he first discovered disco music with his family and then later electronic music through artists such as Daft Punk, Cassius and Junior Jack.

Norman started DJing in his 20s, becoming a resident for several bars and clubs in France, including most notably the Queen in Paris. In 2005, he introduced himself to production and started making music of his own. His first release saw him work with Pierre de La Touche and Arno Cost. Together, they created ‘The Freshmakers.’

Norman quickly discovered a real passion for production and before long was releasing his first tracks through Serial Records in France.

His productions are now signed to a selection of the most important labels in electronic music. Labels like Steve Angello’s Size Records, Axwell’s Axtone, CR2, Strictly Rhythm, Warner Music and the legendary Atlantic Records in America have all spread Norman’s music around the globe. The official download platform for electronic music, Beatport, consistently ranks Norman Doray productions in its Top 10. Along the way, Norman has also collaborated with the scene’s finest talent. He has co-produced with Arno Cost, Avicii, Tristan Garner, Albin Myers, David Tort whilst remixing the likes of David Guetta, Dirty South, Laidback Luke, Tony Braxton and many more.

After having his summer anthem ‘Kalifornia’ signed to Strictly Rhythm in 2011, Norman won the huge honour to succeed to Dirty South and Avicii by mixing the next instalment of the label’s compilation series, Strictly Ibiza to Amsterdam. Both the track and the compilation won Norman even wider acclaim throughout the scene.

With his productions gaining such high exposure all around the world, Norman has become a highly in demand DJ on every continent. On a seemingly never-ending tour, Norman regularly touches down at MOS in London, Green Valley in Brazil, Ushuaia and Pacha in Ibiza, LIV in Miami, XS in Las Vegas, Playhouse in Los Angeles, Ageha Tokyo and Zouk in Singapore to name only the most recognized. His recent tours of the USA in late 2011 and early 2012 have only cemented his position as one of dance music’s best party starters. Not just a club DJ, Norman is also well accustomed to wowing audiences at the world’s biggest festivals such as ULTRA Music Festival (United States), Tomorrowland (Belgium), Midwest (United Kingdom), Sunburn (India) and Creamfields in the UK.

Norman also has a strong presence in Ibiza every year, impacting the scene from the centre of influence. In addition to playing for Eric Morillo, David and Cathy Guetta regularly invite Norman to perform at their party concept F *** Me I'm Famous Ibiza. Not only that but they have also invited him to play with them in Miami and elsewhere around the world. In April 2011, David Guetta asked Norman Doray to play at the opening of his UK tour, allowing him perform in some of the most recognisable venues in England such as the Apollo in Manchester, the Academy Leeds, not to mention the legendary Brixton Academy in London. Norman continues to impress David so much that he was also given the opportunity to produce a remix of David Guetta & Taio Cruz’s ‘Bad Little Girl.’

Norman is also often asked to play alongside the Swedish House Mafia. A regular at Pacha Ibiza during their evening Masquerade Motel events since 2009, Norman is also often on stage with them at larger gatherings such as the Creamfields Festival in England .He also played a large role in the 2011 "Size Matters" tour with Steve Angello, playing everywhere in Europe from Manchester, Birmingham, Marbella and beyond. All his tireless work ensures that Norman also benefits from the recognition of radio stations around the globe. Pete Tong regularly gets the exclusive on Norman’s productions such ‘Apocalypse’ ‘Last Forever’ ‘Tobita’ and ‘Chase the Sun’ for BBC Radio1’s "Essential New Tune", a section of the world famous show that presents the "hottest" track of the moment in electronic music.

Norman is a man that truly never stops. His total dedication to electronic music and the wider scene that it is a part of has enabled him to develop into one of the most important artists within the whole movement.

With determination, talent, creativity and most importantly, a love for music that can’t be rivalled, Norman is sure to continue his lasting affect on house music for years and years to come.

ALBIN MYERS

Albin Myers is the latest uber hot musical talent to come out of Stockholm, Sweden. Alongside his own House productions, Albin is in demand for remixes – requested personally by the likes of David Guetta and Erick Morillo among others – and his latest project is MyBack, his DJ/production duo with fellow Swede John Dahlbäck.

Growing up in a theatrical & musical family, Albin was 14 when he started making music using computer programmes. By 15, he’d honed his DJ skills on a set of technics 1210’s residing in a friend’s garage, and he was soon out playing small clubs in Stockholm. Following several releases on Starbuster, he joined Swedish label Joia Records, and with his high energy productions garnering acclaim the remix requests flooded in from David Guetta & Kelly Rowland, Erick Morillo, Tom Novy, EDX, John Dahlbäck and Greg Cerrone to name a few…

Says Albin, “I was really honoured that David and Erick called me direct as they liked my stuff, it was a more personal way to talk through ideas.” But it was remixing John Dahlbäck’s track, Hustle Up, that had the biggest impact on Albin’s work. “I was a huge fan of John,” says Albin, “so I jumped at the chance to remix a track for him. Then I moved into the same recording studios as him and we started working on a track together. The project just gathered steam and now we have two US tours under our belts…”

Albin’s solo work continues to break new ground, with original productions for Joia, Mutants and Defected, and his own fledgling label, Soundtrack of the Living Dead, so called because “I’m a horror movie fan!” Expect to find a host of Albin’s new productions and remixes, new MyBack tracks, and new producers and talents that Albin uncovers.

Hugely prolific, Albin spends Monday to Friday in the studio before playing out all around the world at the weekends. His early influences encapsulate his own approach to music: "The first electronica record I bought was The Prodigy – along with Daft Punk they really influenced me on the electronic scene – they had such energy and were so different to everything else back then; pioneers in their style.

About his style, Albin says “I guess my own music is semi commercial because house music is so big worldwide, but I’m not trying to be in any particular genre, I just want to make music because it’s fun. The record that got my name out there was my cover of a Foo Fighters track called ‘Times Like These’, which got massive support from all the big DJs, but ultimately I just try to find the right ingredients to make a good club track. My aim is to make club music, so if it rocks the dancefloor then I’m happy.”

Renowned for his energetic DJ style, Albin has chance to test his works-in-progress at the weekend at far-flung locations before heading back to the studio in the week. His favourite spots are as diverse as the Sunburn festival in India and Sankey’s in Manchester, but for the same reason: “the crowd is really up for house music, the people are crazy – hands in the air from 1am to 5am!” Look out for a host of new productions and remixes from Albin and MyBack in 2011.
