Introducing: Tiesto & Hardwell ft. James Stefano – Zero 76

Singer and songwriter, James Stefano started at the age of 18 with several talent shows to over come his anxiety performance. He started practicing with his uncle who persuaded him to give it a try. Although he had a long way to go he liked it so much that he was determined to practice even harder to get his goals. One of the ways to succeed is that James Stefano watched so many video clips and music movies to step up his game. James Stefano taught him self how to dance and to perform from all those video clips.

One day a class member of James Stefano introduced him to Atif Hamdine and from that day the formed the duo A-tif & Suggest. Together they won every talent show they could enter. Their talent and performance didn’t stay unnoticed. Their first video clip was shot in Spain and was well received by Dutch radio & tv.

They also got to the semi finals of Dutch TV show hit “ Holland’s Got Talent” and because of that they toured through Holland and released more video clips. One evening James Stefano got this crazy idea to do a bootleg of Tiesto & Hardwell’s “Zero 76”. The vocal version of “Zero 76” gave him so much attention at that moment that he decided to give it a shot as a MC/Vocalist in the electronic dance scene. He received a lot of requests from deejays & producers from all over the world that wanted to work with him. This has also led to many booking requests to rock several clubs as a MC in Europe.

What makes James Stefano unique is that he is a real all-round entertainer. He sure knows how to handle the crowd not only by mc-ing. But also performing as singer, by giving his own twists to hit songs.

At this moment he is working with a new producers team on new material and a great live show is coming to a club near you. Together with A&G Agency, his new management team he is determined to succeed in his goals and dreams to be a world-class artist, traveling all around the world.

Hed Kandi Balearica Unplugged ft. Lovely Laura & Tyrrell

With the White Isle summer coming to an end Hed Kandi’s saxophonist and vocalist Laura Fowles A.K.A The Lovely Laura and producer extraordinaire Tyrrell come together to bring you their debut artist album straight from the sunsets of Ibiza, Hed Kandi: Balearica Unplugged. They go back to basics, bringing the Hed Kandi fans a taste of their Balearic musical roots. They disconnected the decks, ditched the electronic beats and unplugged the sound system stripping things back creating a medley of deliciously unplugged covers of their favourite dance songs. Tyrrell picked up the six string, laid down some sensual acoustic guitar riffs and atmospheric chords, whilst Laura added a splash of soft, husky, phenomenal vocals and sexy sax melodies.


This all combined with additional production by the legendary Steve Miller A.KA. Afterlife, brings you a wide, laid back collection all reworked with Hed Kandi’s own Balearic acoustic treatment… always keeping a sunny disposition in mind. This one CD includes their favourite renditions of songs made famous by the likes of Groove Armada, Calvin Harris, Deadmau5 & Kaskade, Friendly Fires, Empire Of The Sun and Martin Solvieg to name but a few. This essential eclectic collage of music is destined for Ibiza’s renowned ‘Sunset Strip’ for years to come, where legendary Balearic hang out hotspots such as Café Del Mar, Savannah’s or Blue Marlin celebrate the setting of the most talked about sunset, and Balearica Unplugged offers the perfect musical companion.
