Production wise, ATFC has lost none of his lustre and time and again proves his nomination in the Best Remix category for his mix of Inaya Day’s ‘Keep Pushing’ at the inaugural House Music Awards was anything but a fluke. Following on from 2005’s celebrated ‘Hip Joints’ album and previous remix work for the likes of All Saints, Agent Sumo, Dina Carroll, Phillip Bailey, Samantha Mumba, The Lightening Seeds, Safri Duo and Junior Jack, ATFC’s most recent remixes have showcased a versatile, adventurous producer who is really pushing the boundaries and loving every minute of it. The ATFC touch on P Diddy’s ‘Come To Me’, Missy Elliot’s ‘Teary Eyed’, Harris & Swain’s ‘Changed Down’ on SR2 and The Freemasons’ ‘Love On My Mind’ and Fat Boy Slim’s ‘The Joker’ - both on Skint Records - were all well-received in 2006, being hammered by the best of the best! On the original production tip, ATFC’s ‘Spread Love’, released in March 2006 on Onephatdeeva, and ‘Carino’ – released four months later on sister label Onephatdeepa – were two of the year’s biggest underground tunes and were just two of a number of influential cuts to drop from the two labels including tracks by Noir and Allister Whitehead and Michele Chiavarini. Elsewhere, the beautiful ‘Dreaming About You’ EP was yet another success for Aydin The Funky Chile. Despite his long-term success in the studio ATFC is first and foremost a DJ with over 15 years experience rocking crowds. With his roots grounded in hip-hop, jazz, soul and funk, the young Aydin started organising his own block parties when he was just 16, which led to gigs at London venues like the Rock Garden and Crazy Larry’s. In 1997 while spinning as resident of Bump‘n’Hustle and The Gardening Club in Bournemouth, Aydin joined Uptown Records, suddenly finding himself at the heart of London’s dance community. During this time Aydin produced his first UK hit for Defected records under his OnePhatDeeva guise. ‘In And Out of My Life’ brilliantly fused together Norman Cook’s string-laden ‘Right Here Right Now’ with the vocals of Adeva to bring about a hugely uplifting disco track that was to define the style of OnePhatDeeva. Aydin’s follow-up single, ‘Bad Habit’, was given the honour of being played four times during The Magic Sessions event at Miami’s Winter Music Conference. Tony Humphries and Ted Patterson both played the infectious track, with Louie Vega playing it twice in succession. Championed by punters, DJs and singers alike, ‘Bad Habit’ gave Aydin his second top 20 UK hit and was followed up by a collaboration with Warren Clarke under the duo’s Lab Rats pseudonym. ‘Music is my Life’ was signed to Soulfuric Recordings, giving the Lab Rats the distinction of becoming the first non-US producers to be signed to the label. ‘SleepTalk’ featuring Lisa Millett - the third OnePhatDeeva single - made it three hits in a row for Aydin; the single went into the charts at #33 after spending 8 months in DJ Magazine’s Hype chart and ever since ATFC has remained one of the world’s most in-demand and acclaimed DJ-producers. Maintaining a visible presence both in and out of clubs, ATFC is regularly invited by The Academy of Contemporary Music (Europe’s leading school for Rock & Pop Musicians) to lead music production seminars as a guest tutor and he is also a House music reviewer for M8 magazine. In 2007 this prodigious and down-to-earth talent will no doubt continue to lead from the front!
