Over the last couple of years Sonny Fodera has fomented his own groove driven, emotive brand of house that now resonates around the world, but his 2 latest releases ‘Take It Easy’ and ‘Feelin U’ are number 1 & 2 on dance music icon Beatports charts… proving that he is very much creating the sounds of now for DJs and dancers everywhere.

As a result, of course, Sonny is a hugely in demand DJ who started 2016 with a 30 date tour of the UK, United States and Australia. It was his smooth technical skills in the booth that first won him the affections of Green Velvet, and nowadays he weaves his tight, seductive sets featuring all colours of the house spectrum everywhere from Footwork Toronto to Warung in Brazil, Cielo in New York City to Pacha, Sankeys, Amnesia DC10 and in Ibiza as well as We ARE FSTVL and many others.

Shift K3Y is a songwriter, producer, and falsetto-equipped vocalist who cleverly fuses contemporary R&B with hints of classic house and garage sounds. By the age of 20, he made a name for himself with the EPs Step in the City (Bullet Train, 2011), Let You Down (Buygore, 2012), and Left & Right (Bullet Train, 2012). He also remixed AlunaGeorge’s “Attracting Flies,” Iggy Azalea’s “Change Your Life,” Tinie Tempah’s “Trampoline,” and Bastille’s “Flaws.” He signed to Columbia in the U.K., and his major-label debut was made in April 2014, just after he opened for Skrillex in the U.S., with his garage single “Touch” reaching number three on the U.K. charts. His new release “Gone Missing” is a storming new school take on the UK garage sound and is getting massive airplay in the UK. The song will feature on his forthcoming debut album, which has already seen contributions from the likes of Chaka Khan, DJ Mustard, MNEK and James Fauntleroy.
