US dance music icon, Sharam, has announced he’ll be taking part in this year’s Gumball 3000 Rally. By day, he’ll be taking the wheel of a 1970’s Dodge Coronet Super Bee, powered with a Hemi engine; by night he’ll be hosting a Gumball 3000 Rally club event at each of the North American stages of the rally, spinning a DJ set for the drivers and those clubbers looking for the biggest party of the year. Sharam kicks off proceedings in Boston, with a show at Venu (4 May); he’ll then hit the road and drive to Quebec City with an event at Dagobert (5 May) joined by Jade Jagger’s Jezebel and their resident DJ, D.R.W. Sharam’s next stage is a 500 mile trip to Toronto, throwing a party at the city’s Ultra club that night (6 May) (also joined by Jezebel). The final leg will then take him to New York city, with an almighty closing party at Quo (7 May). Grammy-winner Sharam has kicked off 2010 in inimitable fashion. Having won the coveted BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix Of The Year title at the end of last year he claimed the first Buzz Chart No.1 of this year with his haunting single ‘Don’t Say A Word’. His forthcoming release, the ‘MACH 1 EP’, is out 7 April on Beatport, featuring two new tracks: ‘Love Love Love’ and ‘Hemi’.

Venue: Dagobert Night-Club
