"DJ Hifi Sean (Sean Dickson) has been pushing the boundaries of music since first joining bands in Glasgow in his teens, and as a composer, musician, DJ and producer has continued to do so across musical genres for his whole life.
Sean is an expert in providing the soundtrack to other peoples lives; from his beginnings as singer, songwriter and producer in his band The Soup Dragons, a multi-million selling act whose worldwide hits include “I´m Free” and “Divine Thing” to the critically acclaimed band ‘The High Fidelity’ (where his DJ moniker is drawn) who collaborated with both the legendary John Peel and Mickey Finn (one half of Glam Rock Giants T-Rex); and currently as a highly successful London based DJ, remixer and producer.
For Sean DJing is not merely a case of playing records, it is a uniquely creative and individual act. His sweat-inducing sets are built on many of his own exclusive remixes and re-edits, tailored to take each audience on a unique, personal journey. Building a reputation on this commitment to DJing as an artform, with a dedication to the music and the audience, has seen Sean take up residencies and thrill dancefloors at the most popular, boundary-pushing clubs in London’s underground dance scene.
His mix of 77 Strings by Mantronix was a massive underground hit on the UK and Europe - creating a frenzy amongst DJs for copies - climbed the QX Club chart on audience reaction alone and has recently gained a full release on Fat Boy Slims Southern Fried record label.
Other recent release include “Tonight” by UP YOURS (Southern Fried) a recording project that Sean has created in partnership with fellow London dj and producer Severino (Horse Meat Disco). His current high-profile remixes include 70’s disco legends KC & The Sunshine band and John Le Page’s “key your soul” (hitting the USA Billboard top 20 Dance Chart).
Sean’s weekly residencies include London’s (and the UK’s) biggest and best after hours event, the infamous BEYOND which is packed with clubbers from 6am -1pm every Sunday, and RAW, a club-within-a-club at the Monday morning phenomenon ORANGE. Opening at 4am the club has a wild and enthusiastic crowd hungry for the HiFi Sean trademark sound. Sean has additionally spun out his sound for Barcode London, infamous parties DTPM, Hustlaball, Recon and Kinky ‘Trade’ to name a few in the UK, as well as international bookings in Italy, Holland, Spain, Greece, France, Belgium, Germany, Finland, a capacity tour of the USA and a 4 week tour of Australia in 2012.
Sean’s proven talents as a musician are deeply invested into his DJ craft, giving him an intuitive talent for guiding audiences on an awe-inspiring musical journey. It is no surprise then that he has a fiercely loyal fanbase - close to 50,000 people have subscribed to his monthly I-tunes Podcast - who are always more than willing to go along for the journey. http://www.hifisean.com/
