  • Show Times: BIG LOVE RADIO SHOW

    Tuesday 16:00 - 18:00

Best known for his hit remake of “Last Night A DJ Saved My Life” which was Top 15 in the UK National Chart and of course that remix of Booty Luv’s “Boogie 2Nite” which peaked at number 2, he unwittingly spawned the electronic house sound which went on to become ubiquitous, often imitated but arguably never bettered.

His remixes have always retained a mark of quality, signature chords exuding warmth, and always respecting the vocal whether it be R&B royalty such as Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Brandy; indie/rock/pop such as Ting Tings,  Moby, Just Jack, Mika or straight-up dance such as Calvin Harris, Axwell, Roisin Murphy.

Since the mid 90’s Seamus has produced under various monikers on many a club classic such as Mekkah ‘Race Of Survival’, Splice Of Life ‘2000 Black’, Big Bang Theory ‘God’s Child’, Get This! ‘Ya Underwear’…the list goes on. Well-known global dancefloor staples from ‘Weekend’ to ‘Take Me Away’ and his collaborations with Kaskade, EDX, Cevin Fisher and Paul Emanuel.

As a DJ, he’s played all over the world & held down residencies at Ministry of Sound & Pacha in London and Ibiza and also toured for the likes of Defected, Hed Kandi & MOS across the globe. A previous official ambassador for Pioneer CDJs, he takes DJ skills very seriously. Over the last few years he’s also been taking in Australasia tours playing more chilled, house sets for the likes of Karma Beach club in various locations in Bali to main room house sets for Mardi Gras, Ivy, ARQ, Daywash & GH in Sydney & Melbourne.

Seamus is also much in demand for radio mixes and compilations and highlights include two Radio 1 Essential Mixes, two exclusive Sessions releases for Ministry of Sound, a number for Defected, and he’s even released 2 comps for Men’s Health mag as well as those on his Big Love label.

He will always say that he is first & foremost a DJ and that everything else followed. From the tender age of 16 playing hip hop and soul for infamous London Sound Systems, he was an instant crowd-pleaser on account of his technique and selection. This still applies and for him, nothing beats the adrenalin of thousands of people dancing in rhapsody to his music.

Seamus Haji’s experience is all part of the mix. He has been involved in nearly all aspects of the Music Business from working in London’s most influential dance music record shops for 10 years to A&Ring for Slip’n’Slide Records, Defected Records and Strictly Rhythm to interviewing and reviewing for seminal Dance Music publications such as Muzik Magazine, DMC Update, DJ Mag, Touch and Echoes and of course, de rigueur stints on pirate radio. Since 2002 he has also been at the helm of his own much-respected house music label, Big Love (also including sister imprints Big Love Trax and Soul Love) for which he has either A&R’d, produced, remixed (or all three) nearly 300 hundred singles and mixed 20 compilations.

His latest singles ‘Confess’ and ‘Right Track’ with ATFC have seen Seamus returning to his disco roots and his latest EP with Sammy Deuce ‘Disco Crown’ / ‘Celebrate Disco’ continues the theme. He also recently set up the boogie & disco inspired label Re-Loved for his personal re-edits and EPs from the likes of Chewy Rubs, Birdee and C. Da Afro and there’s more to come from Dr Packer, Mystic 2 Fingerman, Chuggin’ Edits, Motte and Soul Avengerz.

With a relentless schedule across all strands of his career, he is living contradiction of those who insist that men can’t multi-task!
