Russell Salsbury is defiantly one of club land establishment figures, an internationally respected DJ, a talented remixer and producer, Russell has been following his passion for music and honing his talents for more than 20 years. He has mastered the art of DJing and proven his remixing abilities to some of the dance music industry's most critical ears. With nearly 20 years of experience behind the turntables playing in some of the UK’s premier nightspots, Russell has developed a faithful following and established residencies in the UK.
Seemingly a natural since his early teens, 1991 began spinning for friends at private parties, and was soon asked to be resident at the now notorious Miss Moneypenny’s club in Birmingham playing alongside some of his DJing hero’s Sasha, Danny Rampling and Graeme Park. His signature house style mixed with energetic vocals has since become an unmistakable sound that has been heard in venues across the UK.
As a DJ, no one can question Russell’s versatility; whether he’s creating a night woven with dark and mysterious beats, or charging up the dance floor with electrifying vocals backed with hard grooves, Russell intuitively works a room with his creative mixing and programming style, playing music for the masses, as well as the most discerning audiences.
Growing up in Birmingham (UK) he was surrounded with such a musical family it opened him up to appreciating all types of music, from classical to dance. Once he was exposed to the clubs and raves in 1989 and experienced the first summer of love, he couldn't get enough of the beats. He was hooked immediately to the vibe, the crowd, the atmosphere, the enjoyment.
Music enables Russell’s soul to speak. You feel him when you hear him and you immediately understand the passion, love and respect he has for music. After a short break from the scene his focus is always about the feeling and the realness of the music and its message.
In spite of it all, however, it is only one thing that audiences truly sense when they hear Russell spin. It’s the one thing that keeps his crowds coming back to him for more. It’s the force that keeps Russell constantly moving forward in a world immersed in stillness. That thing is called the power of music.
