DJs: Russell Small [Freemasons] Mikee Hollywood [OhSo Stereo]
About ‘Freemasons’: Russell Small is one of the very few DJs to have had multiple top ten hits and several chart-dominating remixes across two decades, and he can uniquely claim to have done it as different artists – initially topping the charts as Phats & Small, before the birth of Freemasons. He started DJing in Brighton in the early 1990s, until one track transformed his life forever. ‘Turn Around’ became a huge hit, spreading like wildfire all over the world. The track launched Russell on the global stage as a recording artist and one of the world’s most exciting DJs. After their inception, the years that followed saw Freemasons become the hottest dance act in the world. Their own tracks ‘Rain Down Love’ and ‘Uninvited’ dominated the clubs, and remixes of songs by Beyonce, Whitney Houston and Kelly Rowland were picked as the lead radio edits across Europe. This success led to gigs all over the world, with headlinine slots at Mardi Gras twice, alongside globe-trotting tour schedules taking in everywhere from Rio to Seoul.
