Headlining the inaugural Pause is ViVa Music star Darius Syrossian. Having grown up influenced by House legends Kenny Dope and DJ Sneak, Darius has gone on to tour every continent while releasing music on some of the world’s leading House/Techno labels such as Get Physical, ViVa Music and 8bit. He consistently charts on Beatport and in DJ Mag’s top 100 tracks with efforts like “I Am The Creator Of Jack” and this summer’s “Freaky D” is sure to be a huge Ibiza hit.
His position within the ViVa Music team sees him present a monthly online radio show, including interviews and guest mixes from world renowned artists, going out to listeners in 30 countries across the world. Plus, this summer he releases his own ViVa Music Mix CD!
With one of the biggest selling releases in the history of 2020 Vision, Burnski was hailed as a prodigy upon first surfacing in the mid 00′s. Since then, he has cemented a solid reputation as an artist erring on the deeper side of the dancefloor, releasing consistently excellent music on labels such as Poker Flat, Dessous and Hot Creations.
We also welcome Glimpse. From the early days of his hugely successful ‘Black Series’ through to the groove-laden tech house of ‘Drifting’ on Planet E and, later, fully pursuing the deep and organic take on house via his Crosstown Rebels singles and album – this musical range has gained him the respect of his peers and culminated in two successive nominations in DJ Magazine’s prestigious ‘Best British Producer’ category.
Mysterious duo Waze & Odyssey (PetFood, Southern Fried) bring the best elements of nineties NY house and garage whilst still sounding totally fresh, W&O have seemingly appeared out of nowhere, clocking up their essential debut EP ‘Ah Baby’ on PetFood.
Casino Times are Joe Spencer and Nick Church from Oxford. They’ve been tearing clubs up recently as well as remixing the likes of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, MJ Cole and Jozif along the way. Ones to watch for summer 2012 and beyond!
