April (UK)

After being inspired by some truly remarkable DJ’s April started her own DJ career in NZ in 2004. Two years later she moved to London to mix up a storm right in the heart of it and she hasn’t looked back! This Kiwi hard dance diva has rocked it for Tidy, Frantic, Storm, Twist, Extreme Euphoria, Fevah, and Slinky. She’s also been booked for Polysexual, Glowball, Requiem, Tasty, and in Oct 2009 she played her debut set in the filth foyer at the legendary Hard House Academy, DJing alongside all the big players! Appearing regularly on Frantic line-ups in London she has also played for the legendary brand in Ibiza.

In 2008 April stepped into the world of production and within a short time she’s worked with many of the big talents of the hard dance scene – Greg Brookman, Nick Sentience, SQ, Rodi Style, Technikal, Tom Parr, Dan Ro, Ben Stevens, and Future Resonance. She’s had releases on Impact Recordings, Riot, Toolbox, Traffic Records, Addiction Digital, eXtra, Spin Hard, Rise-Up Digital, Ballistik, Electrik Shandy, Stereodays, Killertrax, and her own label Pink Records. As well as having her tracks played on Radio1 April has also had a guest mix on KissFM. With more tunes to be released soon and production dates booked things are looking pretty exciting for this pint-sized dynamo!
