With over 130 remixes to his name—including tracks by Madonna (“Miles Away”), Katy Perry (“I Kissed A Girl”), Tegan & Sara (“Back In Your Head”), and La Roux (“Bulletproof”)—Morgan Page has earned a solid reputation for transferring insatiable pop energy to the dance floor in the form of banging, progressive house tracks. High ranking spots on iTunes’ dance chart, Beatport’s progressive chart, and Billboard’s club charts affirmed his salability, while an ’09 Grammy nomination for Deadmau5’s remix of Page’s “The Longest Road” simultaneously bolstered his underground cred while spotlighting his skills as a songwriter.

Page released his first official full-length album in 2008. Entitled Elevate, it featured remixes of music by The Submarines, Dengue Fever, Nelly Furtado, Delerium, and others, along with a small handful of Page’s originals. It was the perfect calling card for a producer well steeped in vocal re-rubs, but eager to imprint his own unique mark upon dance music.

In 2010, Page will release Believe, a powerful, captivating album that makes good on his International Dance Music Awards nomination as Best Breakthrough Artist, and typifies his journey from bootleg remixer to award-winning producer and world renown DJ.

“Believe took a year and a half to make, but it was worth it!” says Page. “I went to great lengths to make songs I felt will last a long time, and to create an album you want to listen all the way through. It’s easily my best work so far.”

As a college student and mix show radio DJ in Burlington, Vermont, Page learned to navigate the space between pop music’s accessibility and the heady minimalism of progressive house early on. At the age of 18 he was nominated for Boston Music Award, and early in his career produced a remix of “Angels,” a track by seminal trip-hop band Wax Poetic, featuring the vocals of one Norah Jones. The dance community was quick to catch on, and his first instrumental tracks were signed to taste-making imprints like John Digweed’s Bedrock, Satoshi Tomiie’s Saw Recordings, and James Zabiela’s Hearing Aid. In 2003, he made the move to Los Angeles.

“I was juggling remixes with a day job, then brewing coffee at midnight,” says Page, “burning the candle at both ends and saving money so I could write music full-time.”

The landscape dramatically shifted for Page when he released a now infamous collection of bootleg remixes in 2005 entitled Cease And Desist. Without the help of master tapes (or label permission) he extracted a cappellas and signature melodies from tracks by David Bowie, Coldplay, Imogen Heap, Esthero, and The Kills with surgical precision, then rounded out the sound with luminous instrumentation and blazing beats. His undulating progressive feel and strict attention to kit detail—never the same kick drum twice, ever—was a perfect compliment to the larger than life vocal hooks. Dance music blogs like Resident Advisor and Beatportal took note, and Page’s own server continually crashed under the weight of the mix’s download traffic.

“It was like going to boot camp,” says Page of the arduous process behind creating Cease And Desist. “It was a great way of getting good at editing with limited resources, and it got out to so many people. You just didn’t know who was listening to it.”

Everyone from DJs and producers to managers, agents, and of course fans got their hands on the album, and its underground success helped pave the way for music future placements in television shows like Samantha Who? and Melrose Place, as well as cutting edge campaigns and in-stores for Bebe, Chanel, and Sephora. With his resume and repertoire quickly expanding, Page struck again with the release of Elevate, an album that KCRW DJ and electronic music pundit Jason Bentley described as “a breakthrough collection of original music and remixes” full of “subtle electronics and thoughtful songs.” Jo-Anne Greene from All Music Guide was even more forthright in her praise, referring to Page as “a man fast becoming a legend.”

Having long jettisoned his status as an up-and-comer, Page is ready to step into the next phase of his career, firmly joining the ranks of established “triple threat” DJs, producers, and remixers like Kaskade, Deadmau5, and Eric Prydz. It’s no surprise that the dance music scene is already buzzing about Believe.

“Fight For You” is the album’s first single, and is already being supported by world class DJs like Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Above and Beyond, Dave Dresden, and Hernan Cattaneo. Bolstered with impassioned lyrics and swift, clean guitars, the track embodies Believe’s fragile yet faithful feel, pushing through wistful cinematic shades to the promise of something better up ahead.

“Believe is very dark, but I’m not a dark person at all,” Page explains. “I just lean towards these specific chords and melodies. Melancholy with a little bit of hope.”

The Pete York cover “Strange Condition,” a simple, spatial arrangement that highlights Page’s ability let his vocalists control the direction of a song, and not be driven towards emotional peaks and valleys by just synths and bass. Page uses a similarly subtle approach on “Tell Me Why,” featuring the velveteen vocals of Télépopmusik’s Angela McCluskey. Elsewhere, Page enlists the talents of Matt Alber on “Agnus Dei” and Gabriel & Dresden alum Jan Burton on “Traces Remain” and the raucous “I’ve Had Friends.” On the moody “In The Dark,” Page himself takes a turn on the mic at the urging of another G&D contributor, Molly Bancroft, who was initially tapped to provide the vocals. For Page, it was simply the next logical progression in his maturation as a producer.

“I want to work with singer/songwriters who have depth to their lyrics, and I’m trying to bring influences in from other genres,” says Page. “It’s tragic to see all the tracks on Beatport that are just made for clubs. They’re great for what they are, but it’s not necessarily something you want to have in your car on repeat, or listen to again in 10 years. This album is really a reflection of myself, and I want these songs to last a long time.”

Ian Carey is and has been for many years a legendary key player in the house scene worldwide.
Ian grew up in a small town in Maryland, USA; about 2 hours from Washington DC. He was exposed to music at a young age, as his father (RIP) was a live sound engineer and ran a sound reinforcement company. His father engineered for such groups as Kool and The Gang and The Duke Ellington Orchestra. Also, his mother played guitar and sang as a hobby. By the time he was 7 years old he was able to mic a stage for a concert and travel along with his father during summer vacation making tour stops all over America from east to west. In high school, he played drums and was even in the school marching band.
Ian discovered dance music while he was in college. Already a part of the graffiti-writing scene in Baltimore, MD he met hip-hop DJs which led him to his next passion. So, he put down his spray can and bought some turntables. He started djing and played mostly hip-hop. Then worked at Music Liberated in Baltimore as a buyer/sales rep where he was properly introduced to house music.
His friends recommended his first setup. He bought a Pentium computer running at
100MHz, an Ensoniq ASR-10 sampler, E-mu Orbit, Planet Phat and the Proteus 2000. With that, he made his very first vocal production (with Jason Papillon as Soul Providers) “Rise”. It was a crossover hit and went Gold in the UK.
It wasn’t long before Ian decided to move to Europe, as it was more convenient to be closer to the place the dance music scene thrives. His signature “funky bass line” sound grew and eventually propelled the demand for his top-notch productions, especially remixes. In one single week, Ian held 8 mixes on the UK Upfront Club Top 40*.
Clubbers, djs, and fans who demanded to know more created an influx of interviews from radio, magazines and people like MTV. The most exclusive to date – an impressive 8 page spread (and 2 hour DVD) exploring the intimate details of his production techniques in the very prominent Future Music Magazine – published in many languages and countries worldwide.
He’s made hits like “Say What You Want” on Nero Records and in 2008 released a rework of his former project Soul Providers’ Rise into the smash “Keep On Rising”. As a result, Ian gets respect from guys like Roger Sanchez, Pete Tong and continues top 40 sales and radio in many countries.
“Get Shaky” was unleashed and saw huge success world-wide, including the coveted Double Platinum certification in Australia and a Gold certification in the UK. In the first week of its UK release, it became a Top 10 in the Official UK Singles Chart. Ian also co-Produced the video which not only ranked as Top 10 on iTunes…it landed him a VMA Moonman award for Best Dance Video in Australia’s MTV Music awards.
2010 and 2011 touring highlights include some of the top nightclubs and festivals worldwide including a 9 show tour in Brazil, a full month tour with 15 shows in Australia, a residency at Set Miami, as well as one off shows in Dubai, Los Angeles, Singapore, Vancouver, Munich, Dublin, London and Moscow just to name a few. Video touring highlights are available to view on Ian’s YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/iancareyofficial 2011 also saw the release of the Vicious Cuts CD compilation that was released by Ministry of Sound/Universal/Vicious Records.
Ian’s newest single “Last Night” features singer Bobby Anthony and Hip Hop legend Snoop Dogg. The collaboration has already earned a Platinum certification in Australia and is still working it’s way through the charts worldwide. Ian is currently in his Miami based studio working on his next singles and collaborating with A-list artists as well as up and coming talent. Summer 2011 sees the launch of Ian’s monthly radio show “Muzik Liberated” syndicated world-wide and available for streaming online.
