187 STIRLING STREET, PERTH
Ian Carey. Ian Carey Project. Illicit Funk. Saturated Soul. Soul Providers. However you’ve best known Ian Carey over the last almost twenty years; there’s no denying it – Ian Carey is a legend in the house scene. He’s a multi-platinum artist with multiple world wide top 10 hits who has sold millions of records across every format and has over 50 million YouTube views. He’s HUGE, and he’s returning to Villa.
The lure of the one’s and two’s sucked him in before the Baltimore street life could, so he said farewell to his graff days, put down his spray can and commenced his career as a DJ and producer. His first hit, ‘Rise’ (as Soul Providers) went Gold in the UK. Seeing the heart of dance music was in Europe, he relocated there and started seriously developing that signature funky bass line.
The more hits he delivered, the higher up the charts they soared. ‘Say What You Want’, ‘Redlight’, ‘SOS’, ‘Shot Caller’, ‘Let Loose’ and the super popular smash hit ‘Get Shaky’ which won Best Dance Video at the Australian MTV Music Awards in 2009. Last year he dropped the track, ‘Last Night’ (featuring Snoop Dogg) as well as the album Vicious Cuts 2011 – a snaringly good compilation featuring tidy-as tracks from Deadmau5, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, Robyn and Armand Van Helden.
