'It's all House and Techno & and I'm not interested fads' these words by Darius Syrossian not only define the style and sound of Darius, but also represent the principles by which he has successfully made his name as a DJ, Producer, Label boss and Radio host at a global level.

This year Darius Syrossian is again joins the DO NOT SLEEP party at Amnesia Ibiza where he holds a weekly residency,

But as a true workaholic Darius Syrossian has been living and breathing, playing and producing house music for all of his adult life. Having served 14 years in a record shop, he has the grass roots knowledge and understanding that has helped him rise to the very top of the global pile. Having played gigs at every major club and festival in every continent, he has also produced & released music on a whole host of the biggest record labels out there, with his most recent work in 2016 appearing on taste making labels such as Mobilee sister label Leena, Material, Swiss label Definition:Music as well as releasing the huge track Funkflex on the vinyl only label Rimming Records as an unnamed artist, and lets not forget his productions on his own Do Not Sleep label that is releasing music on both Vinyl & Digital.

Passionate and refreshingly outspoken Darius makes and plays music that is just as standout. a DJ Mag Best of British award winner who has helped establish Ibiza parties with influential residences for Viva Warriors and Tribal Sessions, but last year saw Darius Syrossian join Do Not Sleep as weekly resident at Amnesia Ibiza.

For Darius, The Radio show, the Space Residency, touring the world DJ'ing, alongside his producing & remixing, all of it embraces the philosophy of Darius to always focus on the music, and to always guard the principles of house and techno, and always, to remain true. In his own words: "I'm into the scene because I LOVE THE MUSIC, not like a lot of people who are into the music because they LOVE THE SCENE. It's only about the music for me, and that's all that matters!?"

Few DJs have made such a dramatic impact on the underground house and techno scene over the last two years as Hot Creations label owner Lee Foss. Described by DJ Mag as "one of the most talented new forces in modern dance music today" and by fellow future house innovators Art Department as their favourite producer, Lee has quickly catapulted himself into dance music's collective consciousness. Lee and his Hot Natured partner Jamie Jones currently spearhead a whole family of like-minded producers that includes Robert James, Russ Yallop, Richy Ahmed and most recently Danny Daze who are currently re-writing the rulebook of how to make evocative and emotive house music.

Born and raised in Chicago, the birthplace of house, Lee now lives between London and Los Angels. Lee made his name on both sides of the Atlantic playing at clubs like The Standard Rooftop (Lost Angeles), fabric (London), The Marcy Hotel (Brooklyn), Watergate (Berlin), Spybar (Chicago) and DC10 (Ibiza). Lee's rapid rise to prominence has been as much down to his unified but all-encompassing approach to DJing as it has to his pioneering take nu school house and synth-heavy techno, backed up by a string of hit releases on labels like No 19, Culprit, Wolf+Lamb and his own Hot Creations imprint. His unique sound, born out a lifelong love of classic house, 90s hip hop, 80s electro and Detroit techno, combined with fanatical grassroots support from clubbers in both Europe and North America, made him the highest new entrant in Resident Advisor's Top 100 DJs poll last December, coming in at number 36.

While growing up in Chicago, Lee cut his teeth on the clubs and raves of the late 90's, which sparked his interest in house and disco. However, it was a chance visit to Ibiza back in 2001, that changed his whole approach to music that helped steer his musical destiny for the next decade and beyond. It was in Ibiza that summer that he first became friends with Jamie Jones and the pair quickly formed a tight brotherly bond that has recently blossomed into their highly acclaimed Hot Natured partnership. Having spent several years abroad, and heavily inspired by time spent at seminal electro and deep house parties in Ibiza and East London, Lee decided to take all that he'd learnt in Europe and export it back to the USA.

After cutting his teeth in the competitive Chicago dj scene for the better part of a decade, Lee chose to uproot and set up in Los Angeles. Lee decided to work on music full time and soon fell in with Droog who were just setting up Culprit Records which became a platform for his early releases like 'h.e.a.d.s EP' in partnership with Jamie Jones. His bold move to Los Angeles soon started paid off as it helped draw international attention to both his DJing and production work. His real break through came with the release of 'Grinding' on Wolf+Lamb, a track that was picked up and played by DJs right across the spectrum of dance music.

Since then Lee has gone on to release a string of hits on a variety of labels including 'The Edge EP' 'Equilibrium', 'U Got Me' and most recently his 'Starfruit EP', all of which have been independently awarded 'Tune of the Month' in Mixmag at various points over the last year. In addition DJ Magazine voted 'U Got Me' as their number 4 favourite record of 2010, having already featured it in their 'Stone Cold Killers' section earlier in the year.

With this many accolades under his belt in such a short space of time, it would be easy for Lee to rest on his laurels but this couldn't be farther from the case. He's just about to unleash 'Forward Motion' his latest Hot Natured production with Jamie Jones, which was one of the breakout records of Miami this year and is shaping up to be one of the summer's biggest hits. In addition to this he's currently in the studio with Jamie Jones and 'Forward Motion' vocalist Ali Love putting the finishing touches on their forthcoming Hot Natured debut album, which he's producing alongside his own debut artist album due out later this year. With plans to turn Hot Natured into a fully formed live act and tour it globally in 2012, this is already shaping up to be a career-defining year for Lee Foss.

After being exposed to the club scene in 1999, Inphinity knew it was his dream to be the one in the dj booth rocking the crowd. Instantly, he began spending countless hours learning the art of djing and working closely with production programs. Inphinity has always been told that he has an ear for dance music, so it ís no wonder his underground mix cds caught the attention of clubbers, club owners, and promoters and shortly after it turned into a 5 night a week dj career at Chicago's biggest, most respected clubs.
Inphinity has held some premier residencies and guest dj spots at every Chicago dance club. This has allowed him to open up and play along side numerous world renowned djs such as: Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Deep Dish, ATB, Axwell, Mauro Picotto, Benny Benassi, BT, Gabriel and Dresden, Darude, Robbie Rivera, Bay Boy Bill, Max Graham, Dj Irene, Tocadisco, Richard Humpty Vision, Dj Dan, Christopher Lawrence, Oscar G, Filo & Peri, Green Velvet, Jonathan Peters, Dj Skribble, DJ Rap, and many other headlining djs. His most recent resident club, Spybar, has allowed him to craft and evolve his style to what he is now known for in Chicago: Dirty House Music.
