The last 12 months have seen a meteoric rise for the enigmatic Trance producer and DJ from the United Kingdom, not just on the tour circuit with regular club shows and festival appearances across the world as he becomes an ever more in demand name but also from a production point of view. With two Beatport No.1’s under his uber-exclusive “SKYPATROL” alias with fellow trance producer “ReOrder” now under his belt and another recent Beatport No.1 collaboration with UK producer Ben Nicky, there have also been numerous other Top 10 hits in the form of solo productions, collaborations and remixes for artists such as ARMIN VAN BUUREN, ALY & FILA, JOHN O’CALLAGHAN, SIED VAN RIEL & more.
Born in Bristol England, Standerwick’s early career as a Songwriter/Producer saw him signed to one of the most successful music publishing companies in the world, the famous Zomba Music Publishing Group.
A recent DJ Mag feature labeled Standerwick as part of the ‘New Wave Of Trance’ (September 2014) and credited him as being ‘a defining talent for roaring trance pitched at the distinctive pace of 138 BPM’
In the last 2 years Standerwick has had tracks released on Armada, Future Sounds of Egypt, Blackhole, Subculture, Mental Asylum, Enhanced and numerous others including 2 remixes for Armin van Buuren one of which was released on Armin’s More Intense Album and a SKYPATROL remix of Armins A State of Trance 700 world tour Anthem.
Along with the three Beatport Trance No.1’s collected in the last 12 months there have been six more top 5’s hits. 24 plays on “A State OF Trance”, including 3 “Future Favourites” and “Tune Of The Week” nominations. 17 Plays on, “Future Sound Of Egypt”, including 6 nominations for “Wonder Of The Week” and endless support from artists such as Armin van Buuren, Aly & Fila, John O’Callaghan, Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold and so many more.
DJ’ing started again for Standerwick in early 2014, and saw him headlining events such as A State of Trance 650 on Armin van Buurens world tour in Holland, Aly & Filas Future Sound Of Egypt 350 world tour in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Ministry Of Sound in London, UK. He has also toured throughout Europe with appearances in Ibiza, Holland, Poland, Czech, Montenegro and Godskitchen and Gatecrasher in the UK.
