Eddie Halliwell has been electrifying dancefloors all over the world for the last decade. He is now one of the most loved and respected headline DJs on the scene.
Recently nominating him in their “Greatest DJ Of All Time” poll, Mixmag said of Eddie “There are people who play records and there are DJs who blow minds – Eddie Halliwell is the latter”.
Meanwhile DJ Magazine informed their readers that – “Eddie Halliwell is a legend, a hero and a massively popular DJ…”
Despite several appearances in the upper ranks of DJ Mag’s prestigious top 100 DJs poll and a long list of other glowing career achievements that includes an overall sale of one million compilation albums worldwide, the main reason fans always flock to Eddie’s shows is his astonishing skill and personality as a performer and live DJ.
In a world where so many DJs look and sound the same, Eddie Halliwell has always been a revelation who sends his fans home with tired legs but a broad smile on their face.
Behind the decks Eddie is an exciting hive of activity, constantly manipulating his machines, warping the music, layering effects, triggering samples, chopping, scratching, morphing sounds into a fresh, unique and powerful soundscape.
Through his hugely popular flagship show on BBC Radio 1 Eddie reached into the homes of millions across the UK and beyond. Two years and eight Essential Mixes later Eddie’s globally syndicated Fire It Up show attracts an audience of over 11 million listeners on major FM stations in over 40 countries. Now, one of the world’s leading dance programs, Fire It Up is seen as a showcase for the most exciting new sounds emerging from the scene. The show also plays host to a selection of highlight live recordings from Eddie’s touring schedule.
The landmark 200th episode of FIU was celebrated in classic Halliwell style by Eddie expertly blending 200 of the show’s biggest records into a rapid-fire two hour mix.
Eddie Halliwell’s recent productions and remixes have also been causing a monumental stir. As well as big singles on his own FIUR label, his recent remix of Tiesto’s “Beautiful World” on Mark Knight’s Toolroom Records attracted widespread acclaim, as did his remix of Trisco’s “Muzak” – which drew extensive support from The Swedish House Mafia and Deadmau5. His huge remix of the Perfecto classic “Bullet In the Gun” achieved top 10 on Beatport’s illustrious main chart.
