What do Swedish House Mafia, Tiesto, Guetta, Kaskade, Oakenfold & Morillo have in common? They all love private jets and Hook N Sling.
There is no denying that the eyes and ears of the world's dance music fraternity are focussed firmly on Hook N Sling in 2011. In just a few short years the man has gone from aspiring disc jockey to in-demand DJ, remixer ad producer property.
Hook's formative years saw him chalk up some impressive feats, in 2007 scoring an ARIA nation, a DMC Buzz Chart #1and several Pete Tong plays for his breakout tune "The Bump", and later straddling both club and commercial radio success witg "The Best Thing" and "Gotta Make A Move". Add to that a sawg of head-turning remixes for Calvin Harris, Fedde Le Grand, Miike Snow, Miami Horror and Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, the acclaim of mixing the Ministry of Sound Annual in 2010, and rocking gigs such as Pacha, Space Ibiza, Global Gathering and Future Music Festival, the early warnings of his impending asent were clear.
But it's been in 2011 that Hook has come out swinging hardest. First with his breakout mix for Hard Rock Sofa & St Brothers' "Blow Up" for Axtone (#1 Buzz Chart), and soon after with his impressive collaborative original "Diamonds In The Sky" with TV Rock and Rudy, released through Fedde's own Flamingo Records (also garnering Tong support and climbing to the top 10 of the Dutch Tipparade). "Edge Of The Earth" (with Richard Dinsdale & Sam Obernik) on Sanchez's iconic Stealth Records followed, with a smash remix of Wolfgang Gartner and WILL.I.AM's "Forever" in close step - all releases cememting his rightful 'one to watch' status by exhibiting his trademark production acumen and versatility.
So what would one see watching the one to watch of late? A Hype Machine #1 with his latest goosbump-inducing offering, "Take You Higher" (with Goodwill). due for release on Ministry of Sound Later this year. And Probably his biggest mix to date for compatriots NERVO - elevating their original with Afrojack and Aoki "We're All No ONe" to bonafide banger status. Also in the not too distant future, is his haunting forthcoming single "Tokyo By Night", coming soon on Axtone. Keep watching. Hook's only getting started.
