Andy Ward, UK
Soul Heaven resident, founder of The Vocal Booth, one half of Soul Central.
His musical style started out as an even blend of early rave anthems, which could have been anything from a Chicago house track to an exctasy-driven hands in the air number. It was this variety in his playing that enabled Andy to adapt his set at any given time to the crowd in front of him, and this style slowly started to gain him notoriety around the UK. Now residing in Spain, Andy presents his world famous "Vocal Booth" radio show weekly on FM radio,(Thursdays 8pm GMT) as well as around the globe on www.tkofm.com. One of the busiest chat rooms in existence sees anyone from Louie Vega to Dave Lee pass through on a regular basis. Andy, also, is one of a handful of resident DJs for the Traxsource radio show, as well as providing guest mixes week in week out for internet and radio stations alike around the globe. Andy says "I consider myself to be a party DJ. I've been back to back with the best in the business, warmed up at the biggest events in the world and can go as deep as anyone. Saying that, I'm at my happiest playing tunes that make people go crazy. Whether that's playing something from the heart at Soul Heaven or banging it out in front of 2000 people.

Tai Pan Dan
Music Style: House (Deep/Funky/Soulful/Uplifting)
Dan is a DJ out of pure passion. Born and raised in London he has always been deeply immersed in a variety of music styles, but his love for House music, Disco and Soul has always prevailed.
Whilst in London Dan made regular appearances at some of capital’s greats including Fabric, Pacha, The Cross, The End, Nylon and Sugar Reef. Along with working in London’s largest nightclubs he made appearances at exclusive private events in venues such as The Royal Albert Hall, The Royal Society of Arts, Grosvenor House and Noble Rot.
After leaving London, he made a solid coverage of Sydney and is now based in Hong Kong where he has put his 8 years of experience into good use playing at Ministry of Sound and Hed Kandi events along-side Pete Gooding, David Dunne and Jim Breese in his first year alone. Being on the line up for Hed Kandi and Ministry of sound wasn’t quite enough and so Dan founded “Opium Soul” with fellow DJ Arun R. A night of soulful and deep house music and the pair have taken the promotion to new levels with electrifying nights at prominent venues in Hong Kong.
Now a Soul Heaven representative for Hong Kong and on the line up for regular appearances at “Pure House” in Beijing Club the coming year is looking familiarly busy. “There are simply not enough weekends in the year!”
Along with all this you can find Dan spinning at Hong Kong’s most prestigious venues such as FINDS, Armani Bar, Beijing Club and Zuma.
Music Style: House (Deep/Afro/Jackin’/Soulful/Uplifting)
The early career stages have taken off well for Arun, making an influential name in Hong Kong, and building up a reputation for playing upfront and quality house music. His style has developed into what is highly sought after by prestigious venues in the city – he is able to take his crowds through journeys of Afro-Latin influenced grooves to a peak of deep and melodic progressions, all framed by jackin’ beats and basslines.
Known to create a live and vibrant atmosphere with his music, it doesn’t matter whether Arun plays at a club, lounge or open-air gig; he is always able to personify his musical presence with an audience, bringing out the essential groove in anyone.
From 2007 onwards, Arun started to travel around China performing at venues in Zhongshan, Jinan, Guangzhou, Shanghai, as well as being invited to play at Elevate (India), voted 35th best club in the world by DJ Magazine. He has graced the decks for prestigious events like Soul Heaven, Hed Kandi, Ministry of Sound Sessions, Renaissance Digital Asia Tour and Funky 4 Love, and has the opportunity to play alongside international DJs such as Paolo Mojo, Alex Botar (Diva La Disco), Andy Warburton, Luke Neville, Dennis Christopher (Beatfreakz), Dylan Barnes (Mutiny), Andy Norman, Patrick Hagenaar, Lewis Boardman, Charles Schillings, Sandy Rivera, Bodyrox (Nick), Bopstar, Ko Kimura, ATFC and voted no.1 DJ in the world - Tiesto. Arun has earned appraisal from some of the above names as ‘the perfect warm-up DJ’.
He has been invited to play at most key venues in the city, including internationally renowned M1NT, Drop, Solas, Volar, W Hotel, Home and the trendy Evisu Baru. Other events include performing for an Andy Warhol Exhibition, 42 Below Vodka and Tequila Patron’s party. 2008 has been a busy one for Arun working with Entertaining Asia as an Artist and Events Manager, looking after a DJ roster and handling events, bookings and venue music policies during the day. 2009 started with an appearance at Q Bar (Bangkok), at the Edition Festival with Sandy Rivera and Bodyrox, while the rest of the year is looking to be a busy one as he launches a private members club and his own label ‘Digital Circus’.
