Hannah Wants - PLAY 2017 (UK Tour)

Hannah Wants has unveiled PLAYground, a small capacity venue winter tour which will see her stop off in Birmingham, Glasgow, DUNDEE and Aberdeen. Her PLAY concept was established earlier this year, and saw the bass house DJ return to her dark, raw and authentic roots in music, incorporating evolved production and visuals. The PLAYground tour will be an extension of Hannah's intense venture into her musical vision.

A child of the garage generation Hannah Wants has validated herself as a world renowned DJ with some serious credentials. In 2014 alone Hannah picked up the Best Breakthrough DJ title at the DJ Mag Awards and became Mixmag’s Best Breakthrough DJ and Star of the Year. Armed with an innate desire and passion to practice the art of DJ'ing from a young age, Hannah has worked tirelessly for over a decade to pursue her DJ dream.

Throughout this journey Wants has acquired an individual hard-hitting style and true competence behind the decks. Nourishing her addiction to music the Birmingham (UK) born DJ dedicated the summer of 2010 to Ibiza. Following a number of competition wins, an unexpected headline opportunity at Es Paradis and an invitation to run her own weekly night at Viva, it was there on the white isle that Hannah really started to make a name for herself. Championing music that is true to herself, Wants further constituted herself as one of the biggest names in dance music with her 2015 Radio 1 Residency, her exponentially popular bi-monthly mixtape series and consistent music productions.

After being a key figure in the Birmingham underground dance scene for a decade plus, TOM SHORTEZ is now rightfully breaking out into the wider world. He is a skilled DJ and selector who has been locked into the house, grime and bass scenes since he was a child. Nowadays he likes to call his sound house & bass, and it is one that has really cottoned on ardour the country. Characterised by explosive sets full of heavy, rib rattling subs and driving drums, Tom cuts in many vocals resulting in raw, energetic and unpredictable sets that make for a thrilling ride.

Whilst I’ve worked the modelling industry for the past few years music has always been my passion and becoming a DJ is my ultimate career path. I guess it will come as a surprise to some that Fox is an alias. My birth name is REBECCA Remelie and moving forward I’ll be DJ’ing under the name REMELIE. I’m aware that so many models turn ‘DJ’s’ and perhaps don’t DJ for the true passion however I want to be taken seriously in the industry and so the name change is to fully dissociate myself with my former alter ego.
