Darius Syrossian & Sean Roman at Surface, Stealth

  • Thursday 8th November 2012
  • Supported by: Darius Syrossian, Sean Roman, Ellis & King, Joe & Kiz Breslin, Luke Jones and Mad D



One of the most consistent names in house music in recent years, Darius Syrossian's steady flow of solid releases have played as the soundtrack to some of the biggest and best nights across the globe.

The last 12 months have seen him play just about every continent on the planet, as well as spending a six-week stint traversing all the finest clubs in all four corners of the United States of America & Canada plus lauded festivals like Sonar & Miami Winter Music Conference. Production-wise the man’s also on a hot run of form: one of his tracks sits proudly in RA’s top 100 most charted tracks of 2011 and not only was his “I Am The Creator Of Jack” track the highest selling jewel in the crown of Heidi’s recent Jackathon compilation, but so too have Darius tracks been licensed to Adam Beyer’s Cocoon Heroes mix and a 5 Years of 8Bit compilation. Most recently, however, DJ Sneak has built his hard-hitting and upcoming fabric 62 around Darius’ fierce remix of Hector Couto’s “Creampie”... “he told me that at fabric” adds the man behind it.

“I’m into the scene because I love the music” says Darius matter-of-factly, “unlike some who are into the music because they love the scene.” For the true house heads out there, this truth is what they seek: long may it continue & looks like it will with forthcoming tracks on several top labels including the huge 'Freaky D' track that will drop on Heidi's new Jackathon Jams label.

This is another producer who we have been anxious to invite down to Nottingham for a while now, so when we heard he was in Europe jumped at the opportunity to book him.

Sean Roman is a Toronto based producer who has been involved with electronic music in some way, shape or form for quite some time. Sean first came in touch with his musical passion about twelve years ago when he initially took an interest in music production, and began DJing two years later. A graduate from Canada's acclaimed Harris Institute, Sean Roman is a relative newcomer to the House & Techno scene and has long been recognized internationally for his popular Drum 'n' Bass productions as Mutt. While perhaps known best for his previous accomplishments in DnB, Sean has recently turned his sights towards the genre's of Deep House, Nu-Disco and Techno. Sean's solo career is an obvious focus, but he produces regularly as a member of the White Lions alongside Cody LG and Rob Steal, all three of which are part of Torontoís Deep North Crew. More recently Sean has signed a string of releases with another member of Toronto's Deep North Crew, Dick Diamonds.

In a very short time Sean has climbed the ranks to again receive international recognition for his production and DJ sets. Sean is currently working with imprints such as Hot Waves, Strictly Rhythm, My Favorite Robot, On the Prowl, Under the Shade, Love Not Money, Runnin Wild and Outcross to name just a few. Seanís undeniable skill as a producer has been solidifying this year, and as more and more groundbreaking DJs such as Lee Foss, Jamie Jones, Miguel Campbell, Richy Ahmed, Russ Yallop, Bubba, Droog, Jacques Renault and Solomun play Sean's tracks to feverish crowds, itís getting harder and harder to find anyone who would deny that this is already shaping up to be a career-defining year for Sean Roman, a monster in the making.
