The Tidy Boys
The Tidy Boys are Amadeus Mozart & Andy Pickles, original founders of the Tidy Trax label empire, this dynamic duo’s entrepreneurial skills and forward thinking established Tidy as the undisputed brand leader in hard dance. From the Tidy label, offshoot imprints, their numerous compilation CDs, tidy.com website, massive Tidy Weekenders and Magna events, not to mention their Big Night Out solo tours, the Tidy Boys have achieved more than most other DJ/Producer acts. The boys have travelled the world and been ambassadors for the scene for over 14 years, headlining arenas at Global Gathering, Creamfields, Gatecrasher, Planet Love, Escape In The Park, Colours Fest and many more. Both Andy and Amadeus left Tidy (Music Factory) in 2006, to pursue new challenges and move away from the dance industry.
In late 2012 the boys launched IDEAL which is a new music and entertainment brand. As with Tidy, Ideal is more than just a record label, its a new exciting community and club which will change the way the traditional digital label and event system works. Ideal is about loyalty, community, passion. The Ideal Weekender was born in April 2013 at Pontins Holiday Resort, Southport.
UPDATE: on the 6th December 2013 - Tidy Is Back with the Tidy Boys. After long negotiations with Chic & Music Factory over the last 12 months Amadeus & Andy have finally got their beloved brand back - in 2014 Tidy was relaunched, kicking off with the ultimate weekender at Pontins in April THE IDEAL TIDY WEEKENDER
The career of Alex Kidd reads like the dream wish list of any hard dance DJ. Over the past ten years The Kidd has caused more waves than the most turbulent of tsunamis and he continues his reign today as one of the undisputed leaders of Hard Dance.
With a lifelong obsession for fast and furious music, Alex Kidd is renowned for being one of the true innovators within the hard spectrum. An AK set is more than just your average DJ set. It is an experience and an education in harder music. A constant morphing of style and inspiration means that each set is an elaborate and imaginative onslaught of beats, samples and technical wizardary, all packaged up by one of the most entertaining and engaging performers hard dance has ever seen.
The journey of The Kidd began more than a decade ago in the depths of Manchester, starting working life behind the counter of his local record store. Carving a reputation for himself on the local circuit soon led to him becoming Goodgreef’s first ever resident and Label Manager. Combining fresh ideas, inventive music policies and an ever growing loyal following, it wasn’t long before both entities were setting the world of harder dance on fire, moulding the future of the scene, and making hard dance history.
It was 2007 however that Alex really made his mark. Already boasting regular appearances at all the biggest global stages, summer 2007 saw the Kidd’s name on every dance festival in the UK as well as many further afield. These included Global Gathering, Colourfest, Planet Love, WestFest and the mighty Dance Valley. As if this didn’t keep him busy enough, a residency with Keep Ibiza Tidy and a tour of Australia with hardstyle superhouse Q-Dance was thrown in there too! The Kidd was duly rewarded for this successful year, when crowned H.D.A Best DJ 2008, along with various other awards. The icing on the cake came in the form of a highly acclaimed Radio One Essential Mix, sharing the Hall of Fame with worldwide ambassadors of dance music Come 2008, spurred by independent visions, Alex Kidd moved away from the Goodgreef/PFA remit to launch his bastard child brand Kiddfectious.
Alex Kidd is one of hard dance’s true investors, be it through his own productions, events and performance or through his support and dedication in tomorrow’s stars. This unadulterated passion and energy has been the reason for his success so far, and the reason that he will continue his reign both in and out of the limelight for many years to come.
