Seamus Haji (GB)
Seamus Haji has held residencies for Ministry of Sound & Pacha in London & Ibiza and toured worldwide for Defected, Hed Kandi & MOS. He is simply one of the most talented djs with the best arsenal of new music. Long sets considered. Nice pairing with Eric Kupper for top quality major house music events. Seamus Haji, of Irish-Indian descent (that explains the name then!), is one of the UKs most influential and internationally acclaimed Dance Music remixer/producer/DJs. He kicked off the new decade in fine style with No 1 UK Club Chart "Good Times" - his Chic remake alongside Mark Knight and Funkagenda as well as priority major label remixes for the likes of Estelle, Jamiroquai, Lock Essiene and Hurts and his Big Love compilation. Best known latterly for his hit remake of "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life" which was Top 15 in the UK National Chart and of course that remix of Booty Luv's "Boogie 2Nite" which peaked at number 2, he unwittingly spawned the electro house sound which went on to become ubiquitous, often imitated but arguably never bettered. His remixes retain a mark of quality, signature chords exuding warmth, and always respecting the vocal whether it be R&B royalty such as Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Brandy; indie/rock/pop such as Ting Tings, Moby, Just Jack, Mika or straight-up dance such as Calvin Harris, Axwell, Roisin Murphy. His own productions (including those alongside sometime partner Paul Emanuel) are well-known global dancefloor staples from "Weekend" to "Take Me Away" and his collaborations with Kaskade and up&coming French producer Romain Curtis being signed to label heavy weights Ultra and Strictly Rhythm respectively. As a DJ, he plays all over the world and over the years Seamus Has held down residencies at Ministry of Sound and Pacha in London and Ibiza and also toured for the likes of Defected, Hed Kandi & MOS across the globe. A previous official ambassador for Pioneer CDJs, he takes DJ skills very seriously. With a relentless schedule across all strands of his career, he is living contradiction of those who insist that men can't multi-task!
