Illusion – Callum Till

Callum Till

Callum’s work with Boxed has allowed them to have welcomed DJ’s such as Jack Wickham, Wade, Truth Be Told, Rich Nxt, David Glass, Adam Shelton and Dan Shake to play with them in Darlington. They have been playing all over the North for some of the best club nights such as Ruckus, Module, Motion, Bass Face, Ill Behaviour, Solar Knights, Concept, Kong, Under and MusicMatters just to name a few.

Having being a resident in Inside Out for 4 years, Callum is familiar to the regular faces in town and knows what’s to be expected from the Darlo crowed. He has also for the Solardo Sessions line up in Amsterdam, Manchester and Darlington.

With his more recent work behind MusicMatters alongside James Burton, they have managed to play alongside some great names such as Richy Ahmed, Max Chapman, Elliot Adamson, Skream and many more. With Callum’s experience alone, you know the guy really knows how to party.

Paul Stolker & Chris Ryan

Paul & Chris are the founders of ‘Terrace Sessions’ and have thrown some of Darlington’s best parties at Avalon’s terrace for 6 years now, non-stop. They have brought big names such as Solardo, Detlef, Wade, Darius, Marshall Jefferson and many more to their home town.

This & That

From their first B2B on The WorkHOUSE radio show in November 2016, getting on the decks has always been easy for these two. They started off simply DJing from party-to-party but in March 2017 Borna and Lewis swiftly established a duo and created their name: This & That. They began playing in their local home town, Darlington but have managed to smash various places in the North East such as Leed and Stockton.

They have featured in the same line up for many big name headliners such as: Rich Wakley, Lee Walker, Sidney Charles, Andy Lee, Riva Starr, Jacky, Leftwing & Kody, Truth Be Told, Latmun, Matt McLarrie, Bontan, Camelphat and Ali O’Sullivan for events such as Ruckus, Solar Knights and Concept. They currently host their own night at Illusion, Darlington. On top of that, they hold two residencies at Concept and Underground Sessions. Their passion for underground house & techno is demonstrated through the enthusiasm they bring to the crowd. Watch this space.

Digit N Kemp

The term ‘up-and-coming’ could not be used more appropriately than to describe Darlington DJ and production duo DIGIT N KEMP. With a few years of Djing under their belts, the young pair have have quickly learnt how to make people move and their confidence in the booth transpires to the crowd as well as premoters, who have invited them to play at respected parties and venues accross the North East.

Their local popularity along with their ever-improving original productions tip them to become something bigger and their recently released debut EP has turned a few heads. With a lot more in the pipeline, their USBs are some of the most converted in the area and feature plenty of secret weapons and unreleased gems that have graced the same sound systems as DJs such as Dennis Cruz, Darius Syrossian, Wade, Elliot Adamson. As well as more intimate set-ups where they have provided the soundtrack to many special moments only found at after parties.

Not afraid of letting out the stops, DIGIT N KEMP are happy to turn up the heat and we look forward to seeing them next and what the future hold for them.

Jake Wharton

Music has always been a huge part in Jake’s life, he got into the house and techno scene from a young age. A passion for this style of music led for him to go on and produce his own tracks, and warm up for DJs such as Marshal Jefferson. The aspiring DJ and Producer started off playing at Mr Hutton’s Bar at the start of the year and has now gone on to working with the team at the keys to create Illusion.
