AntillasApril 10th, 2014
Beginning with his initial forays into the music scene, Antillas has been supported by international radio stations such as BBC Radio 1 and by world-renowned DJs like Judge Jules, Dave Pearce, and Pete Tong. Antillas has also produced and remixed for some of the world’s finest labels: Armada, Ministry of Sound, Nettwerk, Atlantic, Black Hole, Data, Nebula, Ultra, Universal UK, Sony-BMG, Spinnin’, and artists including Tiësto, Michael Woods, Simply Red, Deepest Blue, Dario G, Andy Hunter, Clannad, Matt Goss, Conjure One and many more.
With the release of Plummet’s ‘Damaged’ (a global success and a cover of American band Plumb) and after unleashing the self-produced, mind-blowing main version of Tiësto’s single ‘Just Be’, Antillas was projected into the trance music hall of fame and has sold more than a half million singles in his career so far.
Antillas can also boast an impressive amount of No. 1 and Top 10 hits in the main digital stores, receiving full support from the likes of Armin van Buuren, Steve Angello, Tiësto, Andrew Rayel, Ferry Corsten, Axwell, Paul Oakenfold, Pete Tong, Sander Van Doorn, Judge Jules, W&W, Gareth Emery, Arty, Above & Beyond, Dash Berlin, Avicii, Boy George, Roger Shah, ATB, Andy Moor, Dave Pearce and many more.
In the fall of 2011, Antillas joined Armada Music Management’s elite roster. Antillas’s new version of ‘Damaged’, featuring Tasmanian vocalist Fiora, was released in February 2012. The dance-floor filler enjoyed the support of the world’s top DJs and rocketed to the top of the most relevant charts, where it remained for several weeks. Antillas has since become a highly requested remixer and, in this capacity, he has laid his hands on tracks by Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Dash Berlin, Andy Moor, BT, Kim Wilde, Emma Hewitt, Roger Shah, Ashley Wallbridge, Solarstone and more, in addition to releasing his own music.
Antillas continues to DJ all over the world – some of his more notable live endeavors include: Ultra Music Festival BA, ASOT 600 Beirut and Den Bosch, Armada Nights Russia, Malaysia, USA, Hong Kong and Taipei, Electronic Family, ASOT Ibiza, and opening for the entire Armin van Buuren Intense USA and Canada May 2013 tour.
Antillas has recently launched his own label IHU Records under the Armada umbrella. The label is focused on the trance, electro, and progressive genres, and especially music from emerging artists. In addition, Antillas has been hosting a weekly one-hour show on SiriusXM since 2013: his A-List Podcast airs on Sundays as part of A State Of Sundays on SiriusXm’s Electric Area channel.
Antillas’s debut Artist album, ‘Human Frames’, will be released worldwide via Armada Music on April 25, 2014. The record features a wide array of vocalists and collaborators in addition to Antillas’s long-time studio partner Dankann: Fiora, Christian Burns, Chris Madin, Venom One, Out Of Synch, Jenson Vaughan, Lady V, Destineak, Anki, Vitodito, Tellur, Blinders and Laurell have all contributed to the final result.
