An introduction to Stonebridge
Since tapping into the musical mainstream with his remix work for artists such as Taio Cruz, Britney Spears and Missy Elliott, Grammy Award nominated producer and DJ StoneBridge has not slowed down. Taking his unique brand of sexy groove ladled house to crowds throughout the world, his DJ travels have encompassed top bill performances at stages from Australia’s Future Music Festival to Wet Electric Festival California whilst being a regular guest for clubs like London’s Ministry of Sound and Ruby Skye in San Francisco.
Born in Stockholm, StoneBridge’s path in music stretches over 20 years having launched his career by remixing international acts like De La Soul, Titiyo and Rebel MC. However, it was with his remix of Robin S ‘Show Me Love’ in 1993 that solidified his reputation as a world class remixer with the record going on to become one of the biggest selling house records of all time and garnered a BMI best songwriter award 2012 for his contribution on Jason Derulo’s ‘Don’t Wanna Go Home’, which sampled StoneBridge’s iconic bass line. This early success stirred up much interested in the Swedish producer’s studio talents and before long he found himself remixing some music’s most iconic artists in Lenny Kravitz, Basement Jaxx, Chic, Robbie Williams, Usher, Simple Minds, Will Smith, Texas, Sia, Patti Labelle, Yoko Ono and Debbie Harry.
His prolific musical output has led to three studio albums. His debut long player came in 2004 with the arrival of ‘Can’t Get Enough’, which garnered international acclaim among clubbers and the world’s music press. The album went on to sell over 60.000 copies and spawned undoubtedly two of StoneBridge’s biggest singles to date; ‘Put ‘Em High’ and ‘Take Me Away’, which both scored UK Top 10 chart positions. Four years later StoneBridge returned to the studio to complete work on his follow up album, titled ‘Music Takes Me’. Filled with the massive hit singles ‘SOS’, ‘You Don’t Know’ and ‘Close To Heaven’ the album drew much praise from his legion of fans. In 2010 StoneBridge released what he regards as “my musical chef d’oeuvre” with his third artist album ‘The Morning After’. The title track and second single from the album ‘Trip’en’ saw StoneBridge maintain his form for success with a slew of DJ and radio support.
