Function1 is back December 8th for there first ever Christmas party with a debut Function1 appearance from
IAN M ( Trade / Tidy / Mohawk)

Originally written by Mark Kavanagh

Ian M is the original hard house DJ and still the best.

For eight years in the ‘90s, the Leicester prodigy played a central role in the success of the most important after-hours club in British dance music history, Trade, the most influential club in the annals of hardness.

Having cut his teeth in his hometown for several years towards the end of the 80s, the DJ world’s God of thunder got his first big break when Trade offered him a slot on a tour date in Birmingham.

The rewarding residency that followed at the London club’s homebase in London gave Ian the challenging task of playing after the lord of the dance Tony de Vit, one that he pulled off successfully week after week.

The fruitful relationship with Trade afforded the Godfather of hard house a number of memorable career highlights. These include playing to an audience of 250,000 at the Love Parade in Leeds, teaming up with Danny Tenaglia at Twilo in New York and playing Dance Valley in Amsterdam alongside Carl Cox.

The punisher’s more recent successes at the epicentre of the hard universe are as notable and widespread, as his much-admired residencies at Sundissential, Insomniacz, Storm, Twist, Sinergy, Fuel and Insekt testify.

Worldwide demand for his dynamic DJ sets has taken Ian everywhere from Ireland, France, Hong Kong, Canada, Ibiza, South Africa, New York, Washington D.C, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

As a creator of top quality tunes with high production values, Ian has never been described as prolific, but when he does deliver a new tune, it tends to be a major event rather than just another record coming out.

Who can forget the phenomenal global hysteria surrounding his timeless masterpiece ‘Crazy Pills’ when it first appeared?

Prior to that landmark outing, a string of unforgettable classics had cemented his reputation as a most outstanding music maker.

These include two remixes of Dyewitness for Tidy Trax, his famed ‘Black Is Black’ remake for the same label, the storming singles ‘Annihilation’ and ‘The Dreamer’ along with hard-as-nails treatments for top labels such as React, Tripoli Trax, Elasticman, OVD, Kaktai and Mohawk.

Ian compiled and mixed the biggest-selling volume of all the Trade album series, and has released a host of superb compilation mixes for Tidy Trax, Fevah N.Z and Torture Garden.

2009 saw Ian returning to the studio with Dom Sweeten (of OD404) and Karl Davis (from Ireland) to run up three tracks, of which two were released for Karl’s Pure NRG label and one (DJ Rave) ended up being used for Dom’s mix on Spinball’s “Velvet Hammer” compilation.

2010 has seen Ian going back in the studio but this time, it is with Dave Owens & Valex to co-produce “Demons”, which was exclusively featured on Valex's Toolbox album together with an exclusive "Butcher Boy" Remix. Ian finished the year going back in Dave Owens Turtledog Studio with the huge "Crank" for Tidy.

2011 has started with Ian going in with Mr Owens again for the massive "Where R Da Drums" for newly formed label Twist Trax and the Radio 1 played (by Kutski) "Bang Yer Mind" (with Ben Stevens) for Vicious Circle. And finally finishing the year off with a new track (& possible follow-up) with the working title called "Dirty GaGa", recorded at Ben Stevens all new & plush studios nr Manchester.

And 2012 is looking as busy, if not more with a visit to Mr Owens Turtledog Studios with Ben Townsend (man about town) in January and a possible mix album for a huge HH label together with a new "Tradey stylee" track. More later on that one!!

He may get knocked by the "new wannabreeds" but ask any hard house DJ to cite their influences and you can bet that Ian M is near the top of their list, and his pervasive influence shows no sign of waning.
