DJ & Producer

During a career spanning just over a decade, house music DJ and producer Carl Hanaghan has well and truly lived the dream having travelled far and wide to headline the biggest festivals and nightclubs across the globe.

Hailing from Brighton, Carl was introduced to the house music scene in the early noughties where inspirational sets from the likes of Erick Morillo, Joey Negro, Masters At Work and Fatboy Slim would set the tone for Carl’s development as a DJ. Through his passion for uplifting feel good House music Carl firmly established himself as an official resident DJ for the International clubbing sensation Hed Kandi in 2006. Carl’s dynamic technical ability compliments his versatile DJ sets that include a sublime selection of the finest deep, soulful and vocal house music, old and new.

In the studio, Carl’s productions, collaborations and remixes have been heavily supported by the world’s biggest DJs. His music has been released by a selection of the scenes leading record labels including Roger Sanchez’s Stealth Records, Cr2, Sonny Fodera’s Beatdown, My Digital Enemy’s Zulu Records and Hed Kandi. From laidback sunshine grooves, percussive tribal beats and slamming disco, Carl’s discography has been heavily featured in the Beatport, Traxsource, DMC, Music Week and Cool Cuts music charts as well as hitting the radio frequencies on BBC Radio 1, Kiss and Capital amongst many other stations globally.

Carl was inspired to produce a cover version of the classic Techno record “Strings Of Life” originally written by Derrick May & Michael James aka Rhythim Is Rhythim. The record became an instant hit as soon as Zane Lowe dropped it to a full house at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Glasgow, which was shortly followed with support from Danny Howard on his Dance Anthems radio show.

From this Carl soon caught the eye of legendary House music producer Todd Terry. Together they collaborated on the release of ‘In The House’, an updated version of the classic ‘Can You Party’ by Royal House, which featured Todd on vocals. The record stormed the Traxsource chart featuring in the Top 10 most downloaded records.

Not only a DJ, Carl’s 24 hour 7 days a week lifestyle of working in the music industry over the past 10 years has seen him as an A&R for record labels such as the Ministry Of Sound, Defected and Hed Kandi. Between 2010 and 2016 Carl curated, mixed and mastered the much-loved Hed Kandi compilation series, having sold over a million albums worldwide.
