It's fair to say that If there was an Australian Dance Music hall of
fame, Ivan Gough would be in it. Whether you're talking about Dj'ing or
producing, Ivan Gough is not only one of Australia's most accomplished
dance music exports, he's also one of its very first. A true, 100% 'fair
dinkum' electronic music pioneer, his rare talent in the studio has
conjured a career that many artists only dream of, while his notorious
skills in the booth have rocked dancefloors across the globe Ð from
Ibiza to New York, Canada to the UK, and everywhere in between.
Over the years Ivan's records have made it into the playlists of the worlds best DJ's like old school legends Sasha and Paul Oakenfold, and the more recent class of top DJ's like Roger Sanchez, Eric Morillo and Axwell. Ivan's records have also been getting regular plays on Pete Tong's influential Radio 1 show 'the essential selection' in the UK, with one of his TV Rock remixes (with Grant Smillie) getting the coveted 'essential new tune'. He also has more releases (and remixes) to his name than any other Australian, with dozens of records and cds bearing his name. Over the years Ivan has produced Progressive house, deep house, trance, and breaks, making arguably the first breaks record in Australia with Phil K and Andy Page in 1997. More recently he has turned his hand to Electro and Big room house. Not only is he renowned for his enthusiasm, flair and technical prowess in the studio, but on the decks his legendary track selection and brand of main room tunes (often his own!) have seen him tour nationally and internationally on a prolific basis.
As TV Rock with Grant Smillie, Ivan has had 8 No.1 dance tracks on the ARIA club chart, mare than anyone else, but it was their smash hit 'Flaunt It' that broke all the records. The duo garnished 2 ARIA's for the track, selling more than 150,000 copies and going double platinum, as well as holding the record for the longest running Australian track in the ARIA top 10 ever. Ivan and Grant continued to dominate charts around the country and the world with their latest single 'In The Air' featuring Rudy which hit #1 on the Australian club chart and currently flying up the Billboard chart in the UK.
2010 and beyond sees Ivan's time still divided between the DJ booth, the studio, and running his record label with Grant, and neither he nor his worldwide fans would have it any other way! He's been hot property for years, and that's only set to continue..
