Bigfish goes all out on its 10th birthday

MANILA, Philippines?It?s hard to believe it has already been 10 years since visionary DJ Tuck ?TC? Cheah dreamed up the club brand that was to become the biggest dance outfit in the Philippines. Bigfish started with only a handful of people, but what they lacked in number, they made up for with passion. Bigfish revolutionized 1999?s burgeoning club movement without looking back, and the country?s partyphiles never looked at clubbing the same way again.

Ten years later, Bigfish, now headed by Pixie Lolarga and Ricky Daker, boasts of an impressive array of successes. From producing small gigs in local clubs with local acts, Bigfish has brought in the biggest acts and branded parties the international dance scene has to offer. From the heyday of trance to the supremacy of house to the turn of electro, Bigfish has fearlessly crested the fickle waves of dance music. From its humble beginnings at the turn of the century, Bigfish has risen to become an unstoppable force in the Philippine dance music landscape.

Bigfish celebrates a decade of being the leading dance production company in the Philippines with the Innovation White Party featuring Ministry of Sound, happening on June 26, Friday, at A-Venue in Makati Ave. Bigfish brings in two of the most sought-after icons in the worldwide dance community, Jon O?Bir and Christopher Lawrence, to stir up what promises to be a phenomenal party.

Trance prodigy Jon O?Bir got his life-changing break when he won a DJ competition held by Passion and M8 Magazine, beating out 300 other hopefuls for the top spot. He has earned the admiration of critics and fans for his trance sets which are a captivating mix of striking melody and ruthless energy. On top of these accolades, Jon also runs Conspiracy Recordings and hosts a monthly radio show called ?Ways & Means?. Jon O?Bir is no stranger to Philippine shores, having headlined last year?s Innovation White Party, which was a massive success that brought thousands of white-garbed revelers to A-Venue.

Christopher Lawrence is another world-renowned trance talent who has had his turn spinning for the Manila club crowd. The American DJ/producer reached No. 4 on DJ Mag?s Top 100 DJ Poll in 2006, putting him in the big league with Paul van Dyk, Armin van Buuren, and Tiesto. He was named Best American DJ at the International Dance Music Awards and Best DJ at the Dancestar US Awards as well as the Los Angeles Music Awards. Needless to say, this American export has carved a niche for himself in a world dominated by European and British stars.

Our very own DJ Johnboy Lee witnessed the long journey since the very first gig , being the man behind the wheel of steel for Bigfish radio John earned the respect of other clubs, promoters and Party goers in the Philippines and the international club land, the producer, the composer, and the Dj made his musical career right on the track. Space Malaysia just called his weekly residency to be official starting May 2009.
