MEET THE DJS
One of the scene’s biggest stars, Anne has made huge waves in the hard dance scene and has been rocking festivals and clubs around the world this year with her diverse tune selection.
“It’s no wonder Frantic is still going strong after a decade, with sell out shows in blinding venues, loyal to the core partygoers and a track record of supporting of homegrown talent. Frantic is a phenomenon, something special that everyone involved in should be proud of, so I’m especially honored to be mixing some of my dancefloor smashers for this album and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did hand picking the tunes..”
Welsh hardstyle and EHT queen Frisky has played major festivals and clubs across the country and abroad over the last couple of years, proving that she can cut it with the very best.
“Being a fan of Frantic and attending their events for the past 5 years I was obviously ecstatic when I was asked to be part of their 11th Birthday celebrations. For me, Frantic is all about putting on amazing parties at some of the most mind blowing venues and showcasing some of the best DJ talent out there.”
Adam Lab 4
Adam is headlining the massive Hard House Academy this year, proving that his solo live sets are a force to be reckoned with. His unique harder brand of hard dance is showcased on the Frantic album.
“Frantic was always a real favourite for Lab4 and I am really excited to not only be playing for Frantic again this year but to have been invited to be involved in mixing this album. For me I have had some of the best gigs of my career at Frantic events… The DJ’s, the decor and production, the choice of venues and more than anything the Frantic crowd…”
Finnish superstar Proteus is set to storm the main room at Hard House Academy in October 2008 with his ear splitting live set – get a taste of his full on industrial sound with this CD.
“Frantic is and has always been one of the most strongest forces in global Hard Dance scene. Frantic is a name that people every where, like here in Finland, knows very well and respects! For me it’s a great honor to be part of this great compilation!”
Cally’s energy and enthusiasm behind the decks make her a guaranteed crowd pleaser and these talents shine through on this album. She is Frantic’s Princess of Hard House.
“Frantic is always one of those parties that you look forward to playing at every single time – you get excited waiting to see what they’re going to do next. They always pull out all the stops and put that extra special effort into everything they do – this is what sets them miles ahead of the rest. I have been lucky enough to have been a part of Frantic for a few years now and I hope to be a part of it for the rest of my career. Frantic rocks, there’s no doubt about that!”
Pickup & Rise
