The biography of nearly every globally renowned House and Techno DJ / Music Producer / Label Owner reads pretty much the same. They'll start by telling you how they got into music as a child listening to their parents vinyl collection (which probably includes Motown, Funk, Soul and a bit of Disco). Their father was possibly a (folk) musician who helped introduce them to music at a young age. Coming from West London they probably listened to and were inspired by the sounds of Drum & Bass from their local pirate radio station (maybe they got a show on said station a few years later) and the reggae Soundsytems they’ d pass on their way home from school. Their career will have kicked off likely in their early teens with a few local DJ gigs, maybe in a regional UK city like Bristol, maybe they promoted some parties and then later started a record label (or even four). Said producer must have put out their first release on an uber-cool indie label (something like Derrick Carter's 'Classic' imprint). Then their career might have taken off when they started twisting the format of House music with the help of a few fellow producers and a new label imprint (let's use 'Dubsided' as an example). Some of them might have followed that lucky streak with constant plays at a legendary London club like Fabric. In a bold gesture they may have even moved to a city like Berlin and started a monthly residency at another legendary club, something like Panorama Bar. At that point they'll have "broke through" by influencing a culture entrenched in one style (Minimal Techno) to a new one (Chunky House & Techno).
Any DJ/producer worth their salt carves their own career, and though noted accomplishments and milestones paves the way for themselves as a globally recognized identity. This starts with residencies and regular plays at some of the world's most hyped nightclubs and parties, say: Womb in Tokyo, Razzmatazz in Barcelona, Rhonda in Los Angeles, and 20+ more, from Robert Johnson and Cocoon in Germany to Space, Pacha and Amnesia in Ibiza. Let's not forget a consistent presence at festivals like Exit, Melt, Parklife, Creamfields, Tomorrowland, Mysteryland, and give or take 30+ more. They've got to have credible and viral remixes under their belts, from massive Rap and Dance acts to the most respected underground artists; we're speaking about everyone from electronic legends like Underworld, Armand Van Helden, Simian Mobile Disco, Cassius to rappers like Childish Gambino, Joey Bada$$ and Kendrick Lamar. They'll obviously have put their spin on their sound's legendary classics, for example tracks like Louie Vega & Mood II Swing's "Harddrive," KMS "World Of Deep", Romanthony's "Let Me Show You Love”, or they'll just remix a straight-up classic like ’ Sun Is Shining by Bob Marley. You simply cannot call yourself a world-renowned musician without the proper accreditation, awards, and features: massive compilations on globally dominant labels (Fabric, Get Physical and Defected), recognition as top-ranking in their class by music's forefront publications (Mixmag's Top 10 DJs, DJ Mag's Best of British), and covers on electronic music's biggest magazines (DJ Mag, IDJ and De:Bug). Credibility further expands via collaborations with other notable musicians; a credible producer whose sound infected the mainstream (someone like Switch), add someone who paved the way for their influenced sound (let's say Henrik Schwarz), a trend-setting trailblazer (Claude Vonstroke, for example), maybe add in a living legend (like Leon Ware, producer for Marvin Gaye) and an upcoming cool-guy (Seven Davis Jr) and complete the sentence with "cool band Hot Chip made up a rap about my name for my debut album." With a solid niche carved for their sound, global recognition through their own remixes and club residencies, at this point they'll probably have started their own labels, putting out releases that built new genres and topped charts. But what keeps someone like this at the top of their game isn't just international performances and magazine covers - it's their key role in building new artists' careers, presence outside the world with clothing brands like Zane Robe and the odd DJ gig for a model like Daisy Lowe, radio accolades like many Essential New Tunes, an Essential Mix, Co-Hosting on BBC Radio 1 and being inducted into the BBC Pete Tong ‘ Hall of Fame' and with all that, you're pretty much there. Follow that recipe and viola: a globally-renowned House and Techno DJ / Music Producer / Label Owner.
