Music has always been an integral part of Darren Bailie’s life, growing up with a dj for a father and his family heavily involved in music Darren started playing the drums at a very young age, he has rhythm ingrained into his very D.N.A! At the tender age of 16 Darren first stepped behind a pair of turn tables after being inspired by a scratch DJ at an underground rave, however it was when he first discovered house music shortly after that the passion for DJ’ing really took hold, and he has never looked back! Darren has played to crowds across the globe and is always held in the highest regard for not only his technical skill as a DJ, but also his ability to read a crowd, to be able to take them on a journey as he builds the set and always leave them wanting more! Darren’s mantra has always been that you should “play FOR a crowd and not AT them” and this is what makes him loved the world over! Darren ever imagines himself to be on a dance-floor as one of the clubbers when selecting tracks for his cd wallet.
In the studio Darren is no less impressive, his highest achievement to date is as the creator of the Guru Josh Project and the force behind Guru Josh Project’s No.1 hit Infinity 2008, for which he was presented with an IDMA at the Miami Winter Music Conference! Recently Darren has been working on remix’s for the likes Boy George’s “Amazing Grace”, Tim Berg’s “Bromance” and many more, as well as a number of high profile collaborations and his own solo work!
Since the breakup of the band (Guru Josh Project) Darren rebranded as the Guru Project and has been busy in the studio creating hits under both sudo names “Darren Bailie & Guru Project” his latest release the remake of “I Need a Miracle” shot straight in the top ten of many dj charts around the world, even showed its face in the top 40 Austrian pop charts briefly….. No matter if its Guru Project, Darren Bailie or the now disbanded Guru Josh Project… you know… if Mr bailie is involved its going to be 100% pure perfection…..
Growing up in a musical family, from an early age onwards Damae was fascinated by any kind of music, starting with musical films of the 50’s, Elvis and the Beatles, up to Rock and Punk music. Her first musical steps were solo parts in the school choir. Besides she learned classical ballet and began modeling for the German youth magazine BRAVO. She received a lot of attention and offers from film and music producers, but her priorities were her classical singing education, while at the same time she was singing and songwriting in a punk band. This proves that musical flexibility is not contradictory but foremost an advantage. So it’s no big surprise that through her passion skateboarding, she met musicians who inspired her interest in Hip Hop, Reggae and Dancehall. Shortly after that, Damae developed a deep love for electronic music and was very present in that scene, where hit producer Gottfried Engels (Tiger Records) offered her the part as the main solo singer in the project “Fragma”. Their first common single was an international smash, reaching #4 in the UK charts, which is quite notable for a German singer. In the aftermath, two albums, several video clips, and worldwide tours with gigs at renowned venues and huge festivals followed until 2012. Concurrently, she was the presenter of her own TV show “Dance District” at the Europe-wide TV station ONYX, and she even was a guest host at VIVA’s “Club Rotation”. Frequently, she surfaced with songs of her own or as a featured artist with other acts. At the moment she’s working with Tiger Records producers on new songs.
Over 10 boundary-pushing years, Nic Chagall and Bossi have evolved Cosmic Gate into one of the most creative and highly-sought-after electronic music acts in the world. Revered uber-producers, their musical acumen has seen them become long-term favourites of the trance"s Big 5 DJs with their 3 hugely-received albums transporting anthems like "Body of Conflict", "I Feel Wonderful", "Analog Feel", or the classics "Exploration of Space" and Fire Wire to the dancefloor. As DJs, their kinetic, blood-pumping live performances are seen by hundreds of thousands of club and festival goers annually. Playing a 100 nights every year, it's this ever-visible club presence that saw them reach their highest position to-date on the DJ Mag Top 100, landing at No.62 in 2008. Following a chance meeting at a label office in Cologne in late 1998, the pair collaborated for the first time. It's a production partnership that has become one of the dance world's most successful and memorable. In their homeland of Germany, they've maintained a consistent level of chart success, with no fewer than 7 Top 40 singles to their name and a Top 10 hit in the UK in 2001, with the quintessential club hit, Fire Wire. Drawing on a broad-range of their individual musical tastes and influences, they've continued to advance and enhance the sound... Following up the long-players "Rythm & Drums" and "No More Sleep", in 2006 they released "Earth Mover", which saw a seismic shift towards a more melodic and electronically orientated music. Including the club hits "Analog Feel', "Should Have Known" and "I Feel Wonderful", the long-player was IDMA nominated for Best Album of 2007 and was latterly seen as a new "year one" for Cosmic Gate. In 2009 Nic and Bossi are set to release their fourth studio album "Sign of the Times", which contains 11 floor-monsters-in-waiting, last year"s vocal anthem "Body of Conflict" and the latest smash single "Not Enough Time", which in the words of Tiesto is "a great and solid vocal trancer that touches all your musical senses!" And in the broader scale on "Sign of the Times" Armin van Buuren says "The new Cosmic Gate album is one of the most anticipated releases of this year. They are on the forefront of the dance music sound of the moment... Bring on 2009!" Deck-side Nic and Bossi have whipped floors into frenzies all the way around the world. In 2008 they played Tiesto's now-famous Monday nighter at Privilege in Ibiza, rocked roofs at the Judgement Sunday nights and decisively broke into the US and Australian clubbing scenes through a string of sell-out tours. They appeared in the DJ Magazine"s list of Top 100 spinners for 6 years now and are regular festival attraction, spinning at events like Trance Energy and Mysteryland in The Netherlands, Summadayze in Australia, Germany's Nature One and Stateside at Nocturnal. In early 2009 they are set to roadblock the Freedom Festival with Ti?o in Malaysia and Sunrise in Poland. Back2Back, Cosmic Gate's on-going compilation series was devised as the at-home testament to the pair"s club-rocking exploits. 2007 saw the release of the 3rd volume through Tiesto's Black Hole label. The compilations bring the evocative mix of trance, progressive and electro and stands apart through their use of numerous at-the-time unreleased productions and unique Cosmic Gate edits. Over their production lifetime, the Cosmic Gate remixes have become almost as feted as their productions. Essentially a blow by blow of trance music's A-list, Nic and Bossi lent their studio know-how to productions by the likes of Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Above & Beyond's OceanLab project, Rank 1 and Blank & Jones. Most recently they rewired Deadmau5's "Clockwork" to devastating effect and created two highly-praised remixes of "Vincent De Moor - Fly Away" and "Veracocha - Carte Blanche".
Aquagen are the two DJs and producers GINO MONTESANO and OLAF DIECKMANN. In 1999 their success story started. Their first release IHR SEID SO LEISE/YOU ARE SO QUIET was a massive hit all over Europe and even overseas. In Germany the single sold 400 000 units, which meant a GOLDEN RECORD. Not bad for the first single... Onehitwonder? No way - their next release PARTYALARM was the second smasher and reached the charts once again all over the planet.. TANZ FUER MICH/DANCE FOR ME with the famous German comedian Ingo Appelt, the joint venture-project with the WARP BROTHERS PHATT BASS (Top Ten in the UK!!) or LOVEMACHINE followed and can all be found on their debut album ABGEHFAKTOR. Under pressure, boys?No way. The two took their time and produced their second album WEEKENDER. Progressive dance tunes, sounds deluxe, floorfillers, club smasher....WEEKENDER has got it all. Their first single-release from WEEKENDER was HARD TO SAY I'M SORRY - of course the classic from CHICAGO. The exclusive adaption was a smasher worldwide - and it still is. In Germany the single went straight to the Top Ten sales charts. The mixture of hard and soft beats makes this record to one of the dance anthems in this decade.More classic stuff? Follow-Up was EVERYBODY's FREE by lovely ROZALLA featuring lovely ROZALLA. Another club burner from AQUAGEN. Followed -once again- by the summer hymn: THE SUMMER IS CALLING. 2004 Aquagen changed the Record Company and went to Kontor Records. Their first Release at Kontor was "Girl" and placed in the Top 50 of the German sales Charts. 2006 Gino Montesano did the Coca-Cola Song in Germany.

Alisson & Turner are two House DJs and producers that have been around the world since end of the 80s as Booking DJ's and Resident DJs in many of famous Clubs. What now is called "Electro" was Techno-House at that time.... however, at the beginning of the new Millennium House slowly disappeared from the German clubs, they decided to concentrate on music production's and quit as active DJs.... But their heart kept beating for the good old house music..... and now it's back.... even in germany....
Now these two "old men" are back on the scene, showing the Wiz Kids that they still can compete and even do it better, they are able to supply you with classic house nights right up to the electro sound of today... they feel at home with all the various Sounds and ages and they are very up to date with their program. Alisson & Turner did the remixes for the new Sash! Single Raindrops, Annakiya and many more are in their pipeline. Right now they are working on a new single that will be presented very soon. You can compare them both with a good bottle of red wine.... the older they are.... the better they get....
