Pete Tong Announces US Tour Dates kicks Off October 13 Hitting San Diego, Miami, Las Vegas, NYC, Chicago, LA and more

Pete Tong is unquestionably one of dance music’s biggest and most respected names. Across all corners of the globe his name is synonymous with the very best cutting edge electronic music and talent. His club and festival gigs from Ibiza to London, Brazil to Barcelona have become the stuff of legend. In addition Pete Tong hosts the world’s most listened to electronic music radio shows on BBC Radio One, where this year he celebrated 20 years at the station with a ground breaking 12 hour take-over of the station.

2011 has been an exceptionally busy year for Pete Tong, he kick-started his Las Vegas residency at Encore Beach Club in May, assembled Luciano, Richie Hawtin, Joris Voorn and more for his annual Pete’s Pool Party in Miami, headlined Glastonbury’s dance tent, curated his own tent at the world-famous (and the UK’s coolest) Bestival festival, and continued his incredible run in Ibiza by taking his ‘All Gone’ residency to Pacha. Amongst all this he even found time to co-host a special electronic edition of NPR’s flagship music program ‘All Songs Considered’, re-launch his iconic FFRR label at Warner Music, mix and release two CD compilations, and launch the All Gone App. Truly a global ambassador, it’s clear that Pete Tong is anything but complacent, continuing to push boundaries and explore new ground for electronic music, even after twenty years at the very top.

In October Pete Tong will bring his unique style of party to America for a two week tour, that will see him hit eight of America’s biggest dance markets. The tour comes after he helped close-out the US ampitheater touring IDentity festival this summer. From hands-in-the-air anthems, to yet-to-be released limited edition white label bombs, the Pete Tong tour will treat America to an unprecedented snap-shot of the music that will set the agenda for the next 12 months, mixed by one of the most revered DJs in the world.

SHARAM GETS “WILD” FOR U.S. DJ TOUR THIS NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER Famed DJ and Producer Brings Extended Set to NYC, Miami, Chicago and DC

SHARAM GETS “WILD” FOR U.S. DJ TOUR THIS NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER Famed DJ and Producer Brings Extended Set to NYC, Miami, Chicago and DC

New York, NY – Known to many as one-half of the now-on-hiatus Grammy® Award-winning duo DEEP DISH, revered electronic music trendsetter SHARAM has been making a bold musical statement this year exploring the Wild West with his debut double disc Get Wild (Ultra Records). Now he’s ready to bring his innovative, eclectic musical creations – which feature superstar collaborations with Kid Cudi and Daniel Bedingfield – to audiences across the United States this fall in his GET WILD TOUR. This is a well-awaited return for SHARAM to many of these markets, which include New York City, Miami, Chicago, and Washington, DC, with more dates to be announced.

For his upcoming extended DJ sets, DC’s own SHARAM will be incorporating material from Get Wild in with his own latest remixes/productions, as well as cutting edge, mind-warping music by other artists. In an exciting twist, the DJ/producer will also “spin” on Pioneer DVJ 1000 players at most shows, allowing him to manipulate customized visuals created especially for songs on Get Wild in synch with each record he drops.
“I’m very excited to man the booth for extended DJ sets on this tour,” SHARAM commented. “I feel like I can express myself better when I play longer sets. I have four hours or more to tell my full story musically speaking, so fasten your seatbelts, this should be a helluva ride.”
Get Wild’s landmark single “She Came Along,” which meshes elements of Patsy Cline’s legendary country song “Strange” with vocals by hip-hop sensation Kid Cudi, has been hailed as one of the year’s most uniquely infectious genre-bending songs by publications like Mixmag and Vibe and by many top producers like Kanye West. Of the masterpiece, Kid Cudi himself said, “This is really, really innovative. I haven’t heard anything like it.”
The Director’s Cut version of the “She Came Along” music video garnered over half million hits in its first week on YouTube, and continues to attract attention from major blogs and portals such as Yahoo! Music, AOL Spinner, and many others.

SHARAM’s debut set also includes “Don’t Say a Word” and “Be The Change” with Anousheh Khalili, long-time Deep Dish collaborator Morel on “I Love The Way (That You’re Breaking My Heart),” the one-and-only Diddy on “PATT,” and “The One” featuring vocals by Daniel Bedingfield, recently heard in an episode of The CW Network’s Melrose Place.
Get Wild is available now on Ultra Records in store and online, wherever music is sold. A new version of the album will be released digitally this December with fresh artwork, new edits of the songs, and the bonus music video “She Came Along (Director’s Cut).” =
