HARDSTYLE/HARD DANCE STAGE
What more can we say about Lisa Lashes that hasn’t already been drilled into the mind of every clubber, party kid, and raver out there? Long heralded as the undisputed Queen of Hard Dance, this Tidy Girl has evolved with the music from humble beginnings in the UK club scene to international superstardom at an unprecedented level.
She is the only female DJ to ever have made it into the Top 10 of the Top 100 DJs List. Her compilation CDs have sold in the millions. Her style, grace, and good cheer have earned her the respect and admiration of party-goers the world over. Lisa’s successes don’t end here, however.
2007 saw the launch of Lisa’s very own and highly successful record label, Lashed Music, as well as the worldwide release of her debut full-length artist album! A great romp through Hard Dance, Euphoric Trance, and Breakbeat, this album truly showcases Lisa Lashes at her finest, bringing her most beloved genres to the forefront with tracks poised to do major damage on any dance floor. The self-titled album includes collaborations with BK, Anne Savage, and Technikal as well as new updated remixes of Lisa’s classics “Looking Good” and “Unbelievable” which are set to top the charts all over again!
Whether in the studio producing his own releases or out and about in his duties as A&R, BK is the man that has ensured that Riot! Recordings is the most critically acclaimed Hard Dance label around. Ben Keen, aka BK, is also recognized the world over as the most successful and prolific Hard Dance producer of all time. With worldwide dance chart hits like "Music is Moving" and "Revolution", BK has reinvented the genre of Hard House and breathed new life into the style.
In addition to having conquered the world of Hard House with his production skills, BK is positioned to take over the global DJ scene, ranking since 2001 as one of DJmag's top 50 international DJs. 2007 saw the release of his latest compilation album, “Under the Influence” chock full of gritty tunes ranging from Hard Dance to filthy Electro. Much like his “Klub Kollaborations” CD, this offering is packed full of projects with heavyweights like Judge Jules, Vinylgroover, Ali Wilson, and Lisa Lashes. He calls his sound "ever-changing and full of energy, with innovative infusions of Trance and Techno that redefine the Hard House style. He believes that the sound of Hard House has definitely changed and whether producing or playing, the sounds that BK creates represent the future of the genre.
