Brad Hill

Fascinated by the music and the scene surrounding it from a tender age of 12, the more Brad heard, the more he wanted to be a part of it .

The music was more than just a sound to him. It was a feeling. A whole other emotion.

After many years of dancing one side of the decks, he wanted to experience the next step. After years of toying around with turntables at home, pushing mixes out on social media, Brad got his first opportunity to play out at a local club in 2013. He impressed instantly with his track selection, playing a wide spectrum of music. Tracks that people could feel rather than just hear, trying to give people the very feeling that lured Brad into the scene in the first place. From then onward the love for the scene just grew to new heights.

Now Brad has a rather impressive back catalogue of gigs and venues which he has played alone and in a b2b under the name JAB. He’s graced the decks at places such as Panama Club (Amsterdam), Ministry of Sound (London), Mutiny Festival (Portsmouth) and many

other venues on the south coast of the U.K and his hometown of Portsmouth. Taking over the turntables from Radio One’s Heidi and also featuring on lineups that have included Pete Tong, Kerri Chandler, Roger Sanchez, Groove Armada and many more. The list continues to grow.

In 2016, Brad decided to pursue his next ambition in the music industry, production. Already having some knowledge in this field, he began to dedicate more time to get his own tracks together. His first EP was released in Sept 16, on Aila Records, and since then has found growing support and success with his original music and remixes.

March 2017, Brad’s latest offering ‘Bringing People Together’, reached number one in the Trackitdown.net house chart. It also charted top 100 on Beatport and Top 50 on Traxsource. Now his music is a regular feature in the online charts. Brad now also produces music under the name ‘Alias’, keeping the more melodic and techno productions to the latter.

The future is looking bright for this Dj/producer, already having numerous tracks signed for future release, on some very respectable labels.

2018 looks set to be another big one, with more international gigs being booked in.

Things are certainly moving in the right direction for Brad and his musical ventures. Be sure to keep an ear to the ground, we’ve a feeling there’s some big stuff to come.

 

In his own words:

“ANHP looks to be one of the events of 2018 already, I cant wait to show my stuff and take the crowd on a journey, bring it on!”

KoreVex

KoreVex is a DJ / producer from Portsmouth on the U.K’s south coast.

His journey into Dj’ing and production started in 2005, soon learning the Subtle art of beat mixing and blending. He then set his sites on learning Music production, and has since had many releases under his production belt, including; Household digital, Understated Records and No speakers, all received wide acclaim on the Global scene.

He has since been a regular feature at various venues around Portsmouth, the south-east and London.
His dj sets tend to lean towards that prime techno sound, but with his musical inspirations and influences, can tailor sets for anytime from warm up to top billing.

 

In his own words:

“ANHP and AuralSex, what a combination. Looking forward to this one, what a reward after we come out of winter and what a great way to start the festival season of 2018”.

Brando

After taking a liking to the dance music scene when he was 14 years old, and  at 15 purchasing his first turn tables and vinyl, Brando locked himself away every night teaching himself to master the art of mixing records, to beat match, and  then blending tracks together back when a mixer was nothing more than 2 channel faders and a cross fader. At the age of 18 he got his first break and landed a gig at a local established venue after impressing a scout at a local Dj comp. Brando has been gigging all around ever since. Some venues include: Engine Rooms (Southampton) / Sheiks (Bognor) / Ministry Of Sound (London) / LightBox (London). With a residency at the established Love Amplified hailing from Portsmouth, UK, Brando is an up and coming, enthusiastic DJ, ANHP look forward to what he will bring to the isle of Cyprus.  Earlier this year he also played for CuttinEdge @ Panama in Amsterdam, for the Love Amplified show case, as well as across Ibiza in the summer of 2017, while at the beginning of the summer kicking it all off with the well respected Mutiny Festival for the 3rd consecutive year running.
In my own words:
“I did my 1st set at edge of the wedge in Southsea, then it kind of took off from there being booked to play at all different party’s based all around the city of Portsmouth. I have been Been a Resident for Love Amplified for the past 3 years. Really looking forward to playing at the ANHP in April. Its always a pleasure to get the opportunity to perform abroad and expand myself as a DJRoll on April 2018, let’s do this.”

 

Esee Free

Esee Free (pronounced S E 3 in homage to where they met) are a DJ/Producing duo from South East London and label bosses for Noise Vandals who love all styles of underground music and anything with bass. The two have grown up together and was always on the look out for that next big track. The predominant style of music that inspired these two when growing up would be the sound of the street. At the time this was UK Garage and Grime with their enticing bass and melody drawing them in. From here their love of music surged into the club world taking them through the Uk Funky and Bassline eras. This love of bass and melody eventually lead them to where they find their hearts today with Deep House, Tech House, Bass House, Techno or anything with that underground dance vibe. Playing venues such as the world famous Ministry Of Sound London, the iconic 93feet east Brick lane, the huge Rainbow Venues Birmingham and many more. They are regularly producing and releasing tracks on various labels including Twisted Vintage Music, Her Diamond Dozen and more.

In his own words:
“I use to watch my dad play records at home and he use to put the headphones on me and I would dance around the room. I remember the music being so funky and up beat, I loved it. I remember putting a record on for the first time and actually listening to it. I knew straight away this is what I wanted to do!

Dj manuelo

Amsterdam based DJ Producer Manuelo started in the music entertainment scene as promotor for a samba and salsa band. He got inspired by the sound of Latin instruments such as conga’s, surdos’s and timbales.
