IAIN TAYLOR (iAIN rEJEKT)
After over a decade of almost constant travel, playing at some of the globes most respected clubs and festivals, Iain took his first step into production in 2007 with a set of EPs that caught the attention of legends like Sven Vath, Danny Tenaglia, Marcel Dettmann, Sasha & Digweed, M.A.N.D.Y, Dubfire, Groove Armada while also striking a chord with the new generation of luminaries including Locodice, Jamie Jones, Nic Faniculli, Claude Von Stroke & more
Buoyed by reactions from boyhood heroes and peers alike, the young Mancunion DJ penned further releases for his own Rejekt Music label, as well as for Dirtybird, Peepshow, Crackhouse, Maintain Replay and Wilde Berlin some of which were licensed to Ohm, Balance and Vision Of Love, while also using his new found production status to further help the development of new artists for his own label as well. To date as we approach the 20th release the ever expanding roster of DJs who regularly support his tracks now includes Amine Edge, Alexander Robotnik, Anderson Noise, Stephan Bodzin, Kerri Chandler, DJ T, Luke Solomon, Luigi Madonna, Marco Carola, Paco Onsuna, Ray Okpara, Reboot, Sebo K, Stacey Pullen, Techinasia, Teifschwarz, Tini, Tensnake, Tobi Neumann, Vector Lovers and Iain has been humbled to also receive plays from pioneers like Colin Dale, Dave Angel, Jam El Mar (Jam & Spoon), Nick Warren, Smokin Jo and Trevor Rockcliffe.

In the early days of his career, Iain earned his reputation playing at fabled Manchester clubs like The Hacienda, Sankeys Soap and The Music Box and it wasn't long until he started gracing the turntables of more of the UK's infamous twilight institutions like Fabric London, The Sub Club Glasgow, Back To Basics Leeds, The Bomb Nottingham, Chibuku Liverpool, The Big Beat Boutique Brighton, Ministry Of Sound London and then further afield to the super clubs of Space and Pacha in Ibiza as well as staying true to his roots and also playing at the more organic word of mouth events like the Zoo Project and Club Underground in Ibiza. Aside from the summer seasons in Ibiza, he also enjoyed headline spots on International tour dates for DJ Magazine, Mixmag and Ministry Of Sound, along with headline sets at festivals like Glastonbury (occasionally for BBC Radio 1), Field Trip, Gotwood and Creamfields (and all this without even releasing a record).
Fast forward to today and Iain now stands in his own right as a deejay, a producer and a record label boss with his own successful international club tours. Iain Taylor is proof that if you stick to your beliefs, no matter what others say and no matter what may stand in your way, there's no reason why you can't become the master of your own destiny... Just like he has ;)
KIND WORDS FROM THE PRESS
"DJ, producer, miscreant and thoroughly decent chap, Iain Taylor is fast becoming one of the UK's best loved DJs"
Simon Morrison, DJ Mag
"We like it here at Mixmag towers when a label's press release reads more like a political manifesto, and that is exactly what you get with Legendary mancunion DJ and club promoter Iain Taylor's new project Rejekts. But it's not just the press release that does the talking, immediately striking a chord with some of the worlds most exciting and influential DJs, the music also walks the walk as well. The future looks bright, the future is Rejekts"
