Born in Bristol England, Ian’s early career as a Songwriter/Producer/Vocalist saw him signed to one of the biggest music publishing companies in the world, the famous Zomba Music Publishing Group.

In the years to follow this period, Ian began to explore other avenues in Song writing and music production. Soon he found himself producing Electronic Dance Music where he found his new passion and where his journey in Trance begins.

After a number of successful tracks released on Slinky, Skinny & Extravaganza, Ian decided to take an extended break from producing to start a family.

In early 2012 he decided to return to music and started producing again.

His first production was the successful original track ‘The Shadowland’ which reached No.3 in the TID charts and which also included a Touchstone remix.

During his first year of production, 3 tracks reached the number one spot on Trackitdown’s Top 100 Trance Chart: His remix of Touchstone & Julie Harrington’s – Forbidden, his remix of Gareth Weston – Checkmate, and an original track – She’s Wonderful.

‘She’s Wonderful’ was a collaboration with UK producer Touchstone with Ian getting back behind the microphone again, writing and laying down the vocals. This vocal appearance opened another door in the Trance scene leading to recent vocal collaborations with Reorder – Hidden in a Smile (released on Arisa Audio) and Purple Stories – Perfect Love (signed to enhanced and due for release in December 2013) with numerous other vocal projects in the pipeline.

A recent remix of ‘She’s Wonderful’ by Photographer saw the track reach No.17 in the Beatport Top 100 Trance tracks.

Most recently Ian saw his remix of Ciro Visone’s – First Coming supported none other that 4 times by Armin Van Buuren on the A State of Trance 600 world tour in Mumbai, Sao Paulo, Miami and Den Bosch making it one of the most supported non mashup tunes played by Armin throughout the tour. The track is still receiving regular support by Armin during live shows in the form of a mashup that Armin has recorded with the legendary vocals of Delirium – Silence.

His remix was also chosen by Armin to appear on this years ‘Universal Religion 7’ compilation mixed by Armin which is released in September.

Ian currently has a number of other tracks and remix’s released or pending release which he has produced for the likes of Arisa Audio, Future Sound of Egypt/Armada, Enhanced, Blue Soho Records, Abora Edge, Silent Shore Records and Defcon Recordings.

Support of Ian’s tracks has been significant since his return to producing with regular support from the likes of Armin Van Buuren on ASOT (no less than 6 times in under 1 year), Paul Van Dyk, Aly & Fila, Ferry Corsten, TallaxL2C, Max Graham, Mark Sherry, Bobina, Manuel Le Saux to name just a few.

A Massive thank you for all of your support.
