Dave Piccioni started his DJ career 25 years ago in the wilds of the North of England. As a young man he took his skills to New York and ended up making something of a name for himself of the blossoming club scene. Returning to England, he founded Blackmarket Records in Soho; a legendary DJ store and one of the few that remains in the country. It was from this store that he started Azuli records, a label that has now been in business for 21 years and hold its head high as the longest running independent dance label in Europe.

We caught up for an extended chat with Mr Azuli about Miami, maintaining the label’s integrity and the symbiotic relationship he has held with DJs over the years.

Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
