Mr C’s and Compus Mentis present… returning DJ……FAUSTO!!
Every now and then the world of dance music loses a talent, yet gains an icon. DJ Fausto has been in the game for over twenty years now and whereas some people would lose inspiration or enthusiasm, he is still pursuing to stay at the top position that he has earned over the past two decades. If you take a look at the immense list of events that Fausto has performed at, you will know that he has taken quite a long road up to the point where he finds himself nowadays. Headlining a.o. Trance Energy (closing set at Main Stage), DefQon1 ( main stage Holland and Australia), Qlimax, Sensation Black, Impulz, In Qontrol, Q-Base, Ground Zero, Decibel, Mystery Land Tomorrowland , Miami
Winter Conference, Creamfields, Global Gathering (Poland), Monday Cruise Bar (Sweden), Hard House Academy (UK), a residency at Pendragon (UK), Loveparade (Germany), it’s just a small part of Fausto’s impressive resumé. In fact, he is one of the very few artists who can refer to eight different performances at the infamous Dance Valley Festival, including several closing sets at different stages. Fausto is also probably the only DJ who can say that he has played all major events within The Netherlands.
A never fading hunger for pleasing almost every possible crowd still drives Fausto to be on top of things. This resulted in starting his own label Excessive Records in 2004, which is still going strong as we speak. Several own productions were releases on Excessive and became instant hits, such as
Fausto vs BRK3 – XSV01 ( Reached the #1 spot @ the Hard Dance charts at www.beatport.com)
‘Fausto vs Phil York – Dire Straits’ ( Reached the #3 spot @ the Hard Dance charts at www.beatport.com),
‘Fausto – Get Low’,
‘Fausto and Tommy Pulse – Melancholika’,
‘Fausto – Lupara’ (which was also licensed by Marco V’s In Charge label),
‘Fausto – Raise Up’ and
‘Fausto and Tommy Pulse – Pirates’.
Over the years the sound of DJ Fausto has become so immensely diverse, that you just can’t really pigeonhole his style. A crossover between house , techno, trance , electro, harddance, hardtrance and hardstyle combined with his never fading charisma has become his personal trade mark. When Q-Dance invited Fausto to become the host of a weekly show on their radio channel, there was only one title that would fulfil the show’s contents: Fausto’s Crossover. Every episode is filled with the best and newest tunes played by Fausto and his sidekick Artento Divini and are aired every Thursday night around eighties. You can also subscribe yourself to the podcast channel through iTunes.
The future looks as bright as the past, maybe even brighter. Expanding his Excessive Records label, producing a brand new album, mixing new IHDS compilations, headlining some of the biggest events throughout the world. Hold on tight, it’s going to be another hell of a ride!
