BOOTIK was formed in 2011 by DJ/producer Bartosz Brenes as a collaborative effort with fellow DJ/producer Timofey to create radio-friendly Electronic Dance Music for the masses. Silvertongue is a British-based DJ/vocal duo fomed by Ollie James and Dele Ladimeji.
Bartosz Brenes is one of the most underrated and versatile DJ/producers in the Electronic Dance Music scene. The 23-year-old has gathered serious attention with original productions and remixes showcased on labels including Dim Mak, Fool’s Gold, Spinnin’, Subliminal, Hed Kandi, Flamingo, Stealth, Cr2 and Armada Music just to name a few! His releases can be found in countless compilations worldwide such as Ministry of Sound’s “The Annual Summer” or “Clubbers Guide Ibiza”, and have reached top radio chart positions in Belgium and Russia (spending over a year in the Russian Music Charts) and top downloads chart positions on iTunes & Beatport (peaking 5 times on Beatport’s Top 100 downloads in 2012).
His productions made the industry’s leading artists sit up and take note of his talent, artists such as Tiësto, Knife Party, The Crystal Method, Paul Oakenfold, Alesso, Nicky Romero, John Dahlback and Michael Woods. His talent and reputation has also seen him provide official remixes for the likes of A-Trak, Boy George, Bob Sinclar, Chuckie, Dillon Francis, Sander Kleinenberg, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Jean Beauvoir, Joe Smooth, Perry Farrell, Joachim Garraud, Olav Basoski, Tommy Trash and many more. Just as he delivers the goods in the studio, he knows exactly how to tear up a dancefloor, with energy fueled sets working with loops, acapellas and special edits perfectly combined, making it look more like a live performance than a dj-set.
His own label 17:44 Records is now in full force, and with releases under his Barjo and BOOTIK aliases, Bartosz Brenes is rapidly becoming the name on everyone’s lips!
