KOOL HANDZ -

REMIXER, PRODUCER AND DJ

Kool Handz has been part of clubland for over 20 years. Initially catapulted onto the scene in the 90s as Cool Hands Luke he played in every major club, playing alongside legends such as Oakenfold, Rampling, Dj Pierre, Tenaglia, Kerri Chandler, Farley & Heller, Smokin Jo and Claudio Coccoluto. In the mid 90s he was offered the weekend residence at the iconic Queen Club in Paris, where he took over from David Guetta. Commuting every week, he was one of the first regular jet setting DJs.

He’s also taken his hand to music-producing under the names Santiago Blue, Bang Bang Club and more recently as Kool Handz. He has remixed for Twisted Records, FFRR, XL, ZTT Records, doing mixes on classic tracks such as Danny J Lewis - Spend The Night and Johnny Dangerous - Beat That Bitch. 2015 saw him returning to the studio, with his first EP coming out on uber cool LA based label Blockhead Recordings. The EP got heavy support from superstar DJs like Sonny Fodera, Doorly, Richie Hawtin, Severino, Sam Divine and gained a top 20 position in the house charts. With more EP's coming soon, Kool Handz is killing it in the studio again.

In London he also ran the successful night ‘Genius’ that has seen international underground giants Marco Faraone, Arado, Leon, Santo, Spencer Parker and Darius Syrossian to name a few guest DJ's, and has also hosted parties at key venues Egg, Cargo, Lightbox and legendary Public Life in Shoreditch. He also has numerous residencies in London, playing regularly at Fire, Heaven, Canvas and the Shadow Lounge. has been flown to Cannes, Sweden, Australia and Italy to DJ at huge events.

Specialising in underground party music, mixing up House, Techno & Minimal, he has an encyclopaedic knowledge of 90s music, that he blends with contemporary tracks, his own productions and special mixes, acapellas and effects on a 3rd deck, creating an hedonistic, euphoric party atmosphere that have filled many a dance floor.
