Rob Sykes’ DJ career spans over a decade. His skill as a DJ has kept him firmly at the forefront of London’s club scene and taken him on a global journey to play in the world’s best clubs.
His career began in the 90’s with 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 seen him perform after show DJ sets for Janet Jackson, Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue, and most recently Madonna at Wembley Stadium. He has also performed DJ sets at the prestigious MTV Europe Music Awards in Rome (2004) and Lisbon (2005). In 1998 he became resident DJ at London’s now legendary club, Factor 25.
The club was an immediate success and became a weekly institution for London’s discerning clubbers. Factor 25 ran for three years’ and changed venues four times to accommodate its’ ever growing popularity. In 2002, Rob became resident DJ at London’s first ever circuit style event – Action. The success of Action and the effect it had on clubbing in London was phenomenal.
For four years Rob was resident DJ at Action in London as well as taking the club on a global tour. In 2006, it was time for another new venture. This time it was Juicy at the legendary afterhours venue, Fire. Juicy was instantly established as London’s hottest Saturday night ticket and went on to be named Best Club in the 2006 Seen Queen poll.
