Andrew Rayel
Andrew Rayel
Born on July 21st, 1992, Andrew Rayel’s age never stopped him from taking the lead amongst the next generation of EDM producers. Developing strong musical skills, he studied orchestral music and kicked off his producing career at only 13 years of age. It didn't take long for the passionate music lover to translate his ideas into sounds. He created a truly unique sonic signature - one of piano power, harmonic balance, and euphoric tales. And so, years later, his originals and remixes are praised by many and loved by more. But, rest assured, the Andrew Rayel story has only just begun.

"Trance was the perfect solution, as it is a combination of melody, harmony and energy, elements that I prefer the most", says Andrew Rayel. Having Armin van Buuren supporting his tracks on the world famous A State of Trance radio show had always been a dream of Andrew. His tracks '550 Senta', 'How Do I Know' ft. Jano, 'Aeon of Revenge', 'Aether', 'Deflagration', 'Musa' and 'Zeus' , ‘Dark Warrior’ , ‘One In A Million’ and much more all made it to the show, often voted Tune of the Week and Future Favourite. The trance scene embraced Andrew's refreshing sound, giving him a very warm welcome.

His tracks found a solid home on the A State of Trance and Armind labels, both part of the Armada Music family. With such impressive originals, it didn't take long until the Rayel sound became hot property for remixes. And so, Andrew was lucky enough to take on remix duties for tracks by Armin van Buuren, Tommy Trash, Tiësto, W&W, Dash Berlin, and many more. Earning the support of the DJ elite, the Rayel sound has spread all across the globe, from underground clubs to mainstream festivals.Not to forget performing and selling out world wide venues such as New City Gas, Exchange LA, Marquee New York, Ruby Sky San Fransisco, Zouk Kuala Lumpur & Singapore, Colossium in Jakarta, not to forget the magical Island "Ibiza" in which he has performed at clubs such as Ushuaia Amnesia, & Privilege, and much more as well as earning a Las Vegas Residency at the age of 21 at Marquee Las Vegas.

As a result of his hard work and dedication, fans voted him to become one of the Top 100 DJS in the world, as well as breakout dj & producer and highest climber in the poll voting, along side many world wide nominations such as the IDMA (International Dance Music Awards) which is hosted yearly in Miami during Winter Music Conference week. Then in 2014 his highly anticipated debut album was released


"I believe music is a universal language that unites people with nothing but love. I intend to make sure that my tracks are all about emotions and happiness. That's what's driving music, making the world a better place", says Andrew Rayel.
Benny Benassi
Benny Benassi
Emerging from Italy, world class DJ & producer Benny Benassi built a career and reputation spanning over fifteen years, this humble, authentic and charming artist has grown from club DJ to festival king to multi-million selling record producer taking success in his stride. Having trademarked his unique infusion of house and electro early on, his music continues to inspire and evolve whilst still remaining true to the very core of the Benassi sound.

There is no better place to start delving into the rich history of the Benassi career than with his global smash “Satisfaction”. Spiraling this local DJ to international success overnight, “Satisfaction” and its game-changing music video were the launch pad into stardom for Benny. Created with his cousin and producer, Alle Benassi, and inspired by the car horns outside an open street facing window, this single spiraled into the charts with a #1 in France, #2 in the UK and Germany. His then debut album Hypnotica naturally followed suit, reaching top 20 across nearly all parts of Europe within the first month of release. Thus leading him into playing major music festivals around the world.

Then in 2008 he won a Grammy Award for his ground breaking remix of Public Enemy “Bring The Noise” further catapulting the Benassi name into stardom. In 2011, Benny teamed up with a star-studded album cast for his album Electroman which featured T-Pain, Kelis, Jean-Baptsiste and Apl.de.ap amongst others and most famously Gary Go with his chart-topping single “Cinema”. The Skrillex remix of “Cinema” not only went Gold in the US and platinum in Australia and Canada but won the Benassi’s another Grammy whilst holding firm in the iTunes top 10 dance chart for over 6 months.

Still on this exceptional career high, Benny Benassi combined talents with Chris Brown to create one of the biggest cross-over dance records of its time with “Beautiful People”. The following years have been a measure of incredible world tours and releases, most notably his record “Dance The Pain Away” with John Legend, which premiered live on stage at Coachella with John himself.

2016 saw Benny released his first album in five years Danceaholic, an unexpected, stunning cocktail of already released tracks, two unreleased reworks of older singles and brand new songs, led by the hit summer anthem “Paradise”, once again with Chris Brown. “Paradise” stayed in the Top 50 UK charts for 10 weeks and boasts more than 50 million video views and close to 40 million Spotify streams.
