PEOPLE GET REAL
“PEOPLE GET REAL are up there with the very best DJ talent that the UK has to offer – and the reputation of their Wax:On residency and line-ups speaks for itself. Mixmag receive hundreds of CD’s each week, but years on, it’s PEOPLE GET REAL’s that we keep going back to. From Carl Craig to Depeche Mode, this is as real as you can get right now.”
Ralph Moore, Mixmag
PEOPLE GET REAL is the collective name for the DJ/production duo of Simon Lister and Peter Wilson. Since 2002 they have been consistently and thoroughly bringing their brand of dance-floor terrorism to parties in their native Newcastle, across the UK and beyond.
Alongside their continuing Wax:On residency in both Leeds and Newcastle, they continue to play at some of the best parties and most discerning dancefloors. Recent highlights include; Hideout Festival – Croatia, Warehouse Project – Manchester, Nitsa – Barcelona, Fridge Festival – Budapest, Global Gathering, Evolution Festival, Bugged Out and Over Club – Madrid. They continue to show their diversity by playing alondside the world’s biggest hitters like; Erol Alkan, Sven Vath, Tiga, Loco Dice, Ivan Smagghe, Claude Von Stroke, Simian Mobile Disco and Craig Richards to name just a few.
“Resident DJ’s are the backbone of any great club. Wax:On’s PEOPLE GET REAL are just that and more. They understand how a club works, how to build a night, and know their music enough to shame many of the big hitters.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of playing on the same bill as PEOPLE GET REAL on quite a few occasions now. Whether it’s introducing me to a new gadget, or new tracks, the boys always surprise me, in a good way! It’s an honor every time.”
Their productions and remixes along with long-time studio collaborator and producer John-Paul Denton, continue to be supported by the likes of Magda, Ivan Smagghe, Optimo, Erol Alkan, Clement Meyer, Jennifer Cardini, Brodinski, and Damian Lazarus. 2011 was their busiest year to date with original tracks and remixes on labels such as MEANT, Kill Em All and Metis (Days Of Being Wild. 2011 also saw them launch their own “Join Our Club” imprint, which has seen them release not only their own productions but also music and remixes from It’s a Fine Line, Justin Robertson, Tom Ellis, Eskimo Twins and The Countach.
