After 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 DJs like Sven Vath, Danny Tenaglia, DJ Hell, Sasha & Digweed, M.A.N.D.Y, Slam, Layo & Bushwacka, Dubfire, Groove Armada while also striking a chord with a new generation of globetrotters including Jamie Jones, Locodice, Nic Faniculli, Claude Von Stroke, Bicep, Tania Vulcano, Popof & more
Buoyed by the reaction of his peers, our young mancunion hero penned further releases on his own Rejekt Music label, also producing tracks for Dirtybird, Peepshow, Crackhouse, Maintain Replay, Wilde Berlin some of which were licensed to Ohm, Balance, Vision Of Love and Iain almost signed as an artist to Steve Lawler's then fledgling Viva Music (almost).
Instead he continued to pour his efforts into his own label and the development of new artists and 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, Marcel Dettmann, 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 legends like Colin Dale, Dave Angel, Jam El Mar (Jam & Spoon), Nick Warren, Smokin Jo, Trevor Rockcliffe.

As a DJ, Iain earned a reputation as something special playing at fabled Manchester clubs like The Hacienda, Sankeys Soap and The Music Box, and it wasn't long until Iain was also gracing the turntables of some of the UK's most famous underground events at clubs 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, Pacha and the Zoo Project and Club Underground in Ibiza. Headline International tour dates soon followed for DJ Magazine, Mixmag along with headline sets at festivals like Glastonbury and Creamfields for BBC Radio 1 (and all this without ever releasing a record) .
Fast forward to today and Iain now stands in his own right as a deejay, a producer, a pioneer and as arecord label boss with his own successful international club tour. Iain Taylor is proof that if you keep belief in what you're doing and stick to your guns, no matter what other people 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"
