"Ian Carey. He’s sold over a million records across every format; has dj’ed in over 50 countries, produces the biggest house anthems AND runs his own label – GFAB Records. His discography, label associations and partners read off like a VIP guest list for a Miami Winter Music Conference Industry Party. Ian Carey is a DJ at heart with a rich musical history that has made him a legendary key player in the house scene worldwide.
His friends recommended his first setup. He bought a Pentium computer that was running at 100MHz, an Ensoniq ASR-10 sampler, E-mu Orbit, Planet Phat and the Proteus 2000. With that, he made his very first vocal production (with Jason Papillon as Soul Providers) "Rise". It was a crossover hit and went gold in the UK.
It wasn’t long before Ian decided to move to Europe as it was more convenient to be closer to the place the dance music scene thrives. His signature “funky bass line” sound grew and eventually propelled the demand for his top-notch productions, especially remixes. In one single week, Ian held 8 mixes on the Upfront Club Top 40.
Clubbers, djs, and fans who demanded to know more, created an influx of interviews from people like MTV. The most exclusive to date - an impressive 8 page spread (and 2 hour DVD) exploring the intimate details of his production techniques in the very prominent Future Music Magazine - published in many languages and countries worldwide. Ian spends most of his time gigging, running GFAB and in the studio. He keeps his friends and fans updated with his whereabouts via Myspace. With millions of plays from clubbers and fans on YouTube, his calendar is always booked.
He’s made hits like “Say What You Want” on Nero Records and his very current rework of his former project Soul Providers’ Rise into the smash “Keep On Rising”. Ian gets respect from guys like Roger Sanchez, Pete Tong and has been top 40 sales and radio in many countries." Article source: Ian Carey on Facebook.
