Rob Sykes' DJing career spans over 15 years. Based in London, England, Rob's DJing talent has taken him on a global journey and seen him performing at some of the world's leading clubs.
Emerging as a fresh talent in the early 90's, Rob quickly secured residencies at London's most high profile club nights such as Quiet Storm, Babes in Toyland, Billion Dollar Babes and Studio 94. It was at these clubs that his name and talent really began to get noticed. During this period, he was also a regular guest DJ at London's Ministry of Sound when the club was at the height of its popularity.
Known for his technical skills and ability to spot a good tune, Rob has secured a reputation as a world class DJ. His versatility has prolonged his professional career and he remains a much in demand player on the international scene.
Rob's versatility as a DJ has seen him perform after show DJ sets for Janet Jackson, Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue, amongst others. He has also performed DJ sets at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Rome 2004 and Lisbon in 2005.
Refusing to categorise his style under any particular genre, his sets can be anything from twisted electro beats to funky progressive vocal house. The distinguishing feature of a Rob Sykes DJ set is the pure energy and passion that runs through them.
In 1998 he became resident DJ at London's now legendary Factor 25. Over three years, the success and popularity of Factor 25 grew and grew until the event evolved to become Action http://www.actionclub.net. For the first time, London had its very own circuit style party. The success of Action and the effect it had on clubbing in the capital was phenomenal. For four years Rob Sykes headlined Action in London as well as taking the club on a global tour.
Following the closure of Action in early 2006, Rob accepted an invitation to be the resident DJ of a brand new Saturday nightclub in London called Juicy - www.juicyclub.net. The night was instantly established as London's hottest ticket.
In August 2006 Rob was one of the headlining DJ's at the Loveball in Barcelona www.loveball.info alongside Boy George and Ismael Rivas of Space Madrid.
