Will Holland - TranceSound Festival 2011
It's early 2010 and Will Holland
, now 27 has just released his
4th compilation; the third in the critically acclaimed 'Digitally Enhanced' series, whilst his
world renowned label, Enhanced Recordings
has hit 100 releases.
A lot's happened in the short career of the young Englishman, who first came to prominence in late 2003 when he
debuts at UK super-clubs Passion and Goodgreef, along with stellar releases on Bonzai and Hotdecks which saw him feature on BBC Radio One's
almighty Dance Anthems show 5 weeks in a row and received heavy support from the world's djing elite.
A quick succession of further releases on classic labels such as Platipus and hot collaborations with producers such as Activa cemented his
stature as one of the top nu-breed of trance producers and he
went on to play at further UK super-clubs Slinky and Wildchild, the latter of whom snapped him up for a London residency.
In 2005 Will
unleashed 'Timeless,' a vocal monster that went on to be one of the tunes of the year, featuring on Armin's 2005 ASOT Yearmix compilation and Gatecrasher's
Classics 2 compilation.
2005 was also the year that Will
graduated university with a 2:1 in Event Management and a 1st in his
dissertation 'The changing face of the UK super-club'.
Upon submitting his work and CV to Gatecrasher, Simon Raine, founder of the world's most famous trance club appointed Will in charge of the promotions and marketing for their flagship club in Sheffield; Gatecrasher One.
went on to run sell out events with the likes of Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Roger Sanchez, Above & Beyond and Erick Morillo.
Not content with just making and playing music, Will founded Enhanced Recordings, also in 2005.
With worldwide tour dates, Digital Society Recordings (a new sub-label of Enhanced and managed by Will) and their two compilations released already, this looks like another rosy chapter in the story of Will
Add to that recent international DJ dates, 4 Mixmag 'Compilation of the Month' awards, and finishing as a runner up in the 'Best Mixmag Future Hero', which was won by Andy Moor and you have some idea of the talent that Will
possesses behind the decks and in the studio.
Will Holland is one artist you simply cannot ignore.
