Artist profiles:

SIMON PATTERSON aka Dogzilla (UK)
Simon Patterson the DJ.... is one of the hottest properties in dance music right now. His creative offerings as a producer have captured audiences, bringing them willing with him along his musical adventure. From techy moods to edgey riffs, spin tingling melodies to driving basslines, Simon’s studio offspring’s of the past 12 months have raised his profile to see him become a much in-demand dj, producer and remixer.

Signed exclusively to the hugely respected Spinnin’ Records, Simon’s music has earned him massive support from industry leaders such as Paul van Dyk, Tiesto, Armin van Burren, Ferry Corsten, Judge Jules and Above & Beyond. With tracks such as F:1 (Nov 2006), Panic Attack / Strip Search (Apr 2007), Bulldozer / We’ll See (Sept 2007), attaining almost cult statues, coupled with widespread acclaim from the dance media.

However, it’s when he’s behind the decks that the sound of Simon comes alive. With a style described as cutting edge, dark, driving, pulsating, Simon’s technical ability is a finely tuned art that fuses trance with elements of techno and electronica. If you’re stood on a dance floor when Patterson’s behind the CDJ’s you know who’s in control, and the only thing you’re likely to do is to dance and dance hard.

Moving from Belfast to London some 10 years ago his career has been punctuated with a wealth of experience in dance music. From working alongside Dave Lambert at top Universal dance label AM:PM, which led to him being approached by head A&R man Nick Halkes to work with him on his new Ministry Of Sound label – Incentive Records, he then went on to being the driving force in the engine rooms of two of the biggest shows on Radio 1, he utilised his finely tuned ear working as the tastemaker behind Seb Fontaine and Judge Jules’ peak-time Saturday nighters.

Labelled by Mixmag in 2004 as ‘One to Watch for the future’, Simon has since drawn on this knowledge, and with an unparallel passion for music, he has now thrust himself firmly at the forefront of the trance elite, and is firmly forging his own career as a prolific artist within his field.

In the past five years Simon has really clocked up the air miles, rocking some of the biggest parties on offer. His highlights are vast, and too lengthy to list, but here are a few. In Rotterdam, crowds of up to 500,000 witnessed the might of Simon Patterson, revellers that flock to the sun drenched dance Mecca that is Ibiza have experience his sound year in, year out, a huge tour of the far-east and an indoor festival in Russia where he gave 20,000 Muscovites a musical masterclass.

Behind the CDJ’s Simon has graced the world stage at many prolific festivals such as Dance Valley, Sunrise, Gatecrasher Summer Sound System, HI-FI, Planet Love, Monday Bar Cruise, Full on Ferry, Mexico Stadium, all the while delivering his sound to new audiences with frequent appearances throughout Asia, Australasia, Europe, North and South America. Whilst his club repertoire stands equally tall ranging from the likes of Godskitchen, Gatecrasher, Turnmills, Slinky, Judgement Sunday, Passion, Escape, Koolwaters and Wildchild, where he has left the foundations of each of these clubs shaken to their very core.

Aside from his solo projects Simon was also one half of the massive Dogzilla with Richard Kayvan, which with just one tune shook up the trance scene in the 00’s. Picked by former world #1 DJ Paul van Dyk as his track of year, ‘Without You’ sent shockwaves throughout clubland finding phenomenal support along the way.

With their genre-defying productions, Dogzilla tracks became part of every top DJ's set list and still remains in doing so, from the early days of their eponymously titled debut, which featured in the cult Brit flick 'The Football Factory', right up to the massive 'Your Eyes’ and ‘Frozen’, Dogzilla’s music achieved an impressive foray on the modern day club scene.

Regarded by M8 Magazine as ‘one of the highlights of 2007’, there is no doubt that Simon Patterson has ‘big hitter’ in his blood. With his foot firmly to the pedal as a producer, boasting a diary that reeks of big things, coupled with a desire that is second to none, world…..you better look out!

Ehren Stowers (UK)
Born in Southend, but raised in New Zealand, Ehren Stowers came back to England in early 1999, and upon stumbling into the famous ‘Gallery’ in London- discovered Trance. It was literally one of those life changing moments. Later that same year, Ehren returned to New Zealand with a bag of records- but it wasn’t until his collection tripled in late 2000 that he actually decided to learn how to play them!.

Ehren began playing out almost immediately, playing at various venues around Auckland for the Panic Promotion’s ‘Storm’ parties. By mid 2002, he had returned to London and almost immediately begun playing regularly for ‘DPressure’ at the Soundshaft.

Born out of this relationship in late 2003, came Trance Generation were he now holds a residency.

As well as ‘The Soundshaft’, Ehren has also played regularly for Turnmills (The Gallery), has played for Serious (Scala), ‘The Fridge’ (Innovate) ‘The Honey Club’ in Brighton, ‘Egg’, ‘Heaven’, ‘The Mass’, ‘SE1 Club’, ‘Hidden’ and various other venues across London. He has played along-side some of the best DJ’s in the world, including taking over from none other than Armin Van Buuren, and has supported DJ’s such as Paul Oakenfold, Judge Jules, Christopher Lawrence, Ferry Corsten, Steve Lawler, Tall Paul, M.I.K.E (Push), Scott Bond, Matt Hardwick, Agnelli + Nelson, Above & Beyond, The Thrillseekers, Lange, Solarstone, Graham Gold, John ‘OO’ Fleming, Darren Tate, Rank1, Matt Darey, Fred Baker, Adam White, Albert Vorne, K90, John O’ Callaghan, Ronski Speed, The Disco Brothers & Corderoy to name just a few!

Recently, he has had a string of successes on the production front, with several tracks being played by the worlds top DJ’s, including ARMIN VAN BUUREN, ABOVE & BEYOND, FERRY CORSTEN, JUDGE JULES and many more. He has recently remixed A B Project – ‘Misconceptions’ for Mondo Records, released several tracks on Monster Tunes (‘Way of Life’ with the Viceroy, and a solo project called ‘Panspermia’), with an EP on the way out this easter on Monster entitled ‘Cold Chaos’ (which received early support from Above & Beyond on Trance Around the World). He is also currently collaborating in the studio on two separate projects with CORDEROY and SIMON BOSTOCK (having remixed ‘Solarstones’ classic – Seven Cities’ with Simon in 2007 which received support from Armin Van Buuren on A State of Trance). Ehren also has a string of new tracks due for release on Real Music & Perceptive Recordings later in the year (‘Icarus’ & ‘Twisted Symmetry’).

Not content to stop there, Ehren also writes music with Andy Young (Bio music) under the guise of ‘Stowers & Young’. Their first Track, ‘The Second Coming‘, has received support from Judge Jules on Radio1, Graham Gold and John Askew on Kiss FM, and was Gavyn Mytchel’s number 1 Gallery tune of the week on his Ministry of Sound radio show. With a stunning new remix in 2008 by Gareth Emery (seeing further support by Armin on his ‘A State of Trance’ show), the track is due for release on INSIGHT RECORDINGS in the next few months (Ehren’s new label, on the verge of launching over the next few months- being run jointly with Andy Young, Simon Bostock & James Cognet). Their follow up, ‘Lost on Earth’, is currently being worked on in the studio, with an early exclusive test release making Solarstone’s ‘tune of the week’ on their ‘Deep Blue radio show’ – watch out for this monster!.

Ehren has appeared as a ‘Guest DJ’ on many radio shows- most notably SOLARSTONE & AGNELLI & NELSON’S Deep Blue Radio Show in January 2008, ‘The Corderoy show’on‘Digitally Imported’ (DI FM), Gavyn Mytchel’s ‘The Gallery Show’ on Ministry of Sound Radio, as well as Adam White’s show, also on ‘Ministry of Sound Radio’.

With his residency at ‘Trance Generation’ (now re-launching as ‘Generation’), Ehren is a dominant force on the London trance scene.

Tipped as ‘one to watch’ by both Graham Gold & Gavyn Mytchel – and with some exciting projects just around the corner, expect much, much more from Ehren in the following year!
