With over a decade of collaborative dance releases now under his belt, Los Angeles-based Antoine Becks is now bursting out as a solo artist. With his previous live act, Second Sun, he has performed in some of the biggest clubs and festivals worldwide. Antoine is the voice of such global dance hits as Sharam’s "Party All The Time" and featured in Paul Van Dyk’s track "Crush", which Antoine also wrote and produced. This song appeared on the Grammy-nominated album, Reflections.
As a producer, he has releases with all the top dance labels: two full albums, two EPs, a slew of big remixes including Queen's "Another one Bites the Dust" appearing as The Miami Project. Last year Antoine went on the road DJing alongside percussionist Shannon Leto, the drummer of platinum-selling rock band Thirty Seconds To Mars. Antoine is now performing solo DJ shows--rocking clubs and festivals worldwide. Antoine elaborates, "This is what I live for. Going from making music in the studio, which is very cerebral and personal, to exploding on stage and sharing pure energy with the crowd". He smiles, "I'm very serious about my party music."
He is one of the only international DJs who also performs live vocals, creating epic live moments at every show. “Antoine's utter enthusiasm gets your feet off the floor. Electrifying, unpredictable and energizing," details REMIX magazine. During his career, he has packed the world's best club venues: Pacha (New York), Mansion (Miami), Congress Theatre (Chicago), Guvernment (Toronto), Avalon (Los Angeles), Glow (Washington, D.C.), Foro Alterno (Guadalajara, Mexico), Gia (Quito, Ecuador), Loft (Lisbon), Bell Center (Montreal), Gaudi Arena (Moscow), Passage (Vienna), Karma (Milan), Godskitchen (UK), Privilege (Ibiza), and the list goes on.
Antoine is no stranger to massive main-stage festival crowds either. Having played numerous festivals including EDC (US), Nocturnal Wonderland (US), Ultra Music Festival (US), Electric Zoo (US), Bal en Blanc (Canada), Global Gathering (UK), Gatecrasher Summer Soundsystem (UK), Planet Love (Ireland), South American Music Conference (Argentina), Summerland (Colombia) and Beatpatrol (Austria), this true showman thrives in front of large crowds. His rapidly growing fan base follows his every move calling themselves the “Becksters”. When not on tour, this classically-trained multi-instrumentalist spends countless hours in the studio crafting his future anthems. These dance floor bangers are coming out one by one, starting with "Life of the Wild", then "Insane", which was released on Diplo's label Mad Decent, a track supported by Tiesto and David Guetta. As a perfect summer anthem, Cr2 Records released "This Is Our Time" on their chart-topping annual Ibiza compilation. This fall, wave of releases continues as Antoine Becks' new single "Let's Go All Night" comes out on September 22nd. The track features the vocals of legendary house diva Cece Peniston. Then, after another club banger "DROP IT" comes out on Cr2 Records, Antoine will unleash his new monster, a new "remade" version of "Party All The Time" - giving the explosive track a whole new feel. You can also hear Antoine in director Michael Bay's newest movie blockbuster "Pain and Gain". Be sure to catch Antoine's unique performance at a club or festival near you!
