Cevin Fisher Bio

The Way We Used to Do It, The Freaks Come Out, House is a Feeling, You Got Me Burning Up, Love You Some More and on and on and on…

There are very few people whose name is synonymous with the term “house anthem” …but all these tracks were created by one man… Cevin Fisher.

Born in East Orange, New Jersey, Cevin Fisher has risen to become one of the worlds most respected and prolific house producers and DJ. While still in his teens, a growing passion for club music propelled Cevin into the heady circles that were seeds of what we call house – Paradise Garage, Zanzibar, The Loft and more. This was enough inspiration to push Cevin to imitate his heroes such as Tony Humphries, Larry Levan and Francois K. His hard work eventually paid off when he was given his big break as a warm-up for Zanzibar resident Larry Paterson on Friday nights.

After that, Cevin expanded his horizons to New York City, frequenting the top recording studios that helped him sharpen the skills that would make him the incredible producer he is today. He soon fell into production work for Timmy Regisford of Motown Records alongside future electro-Don and mainstream producer Arthur Baker at Shakedown Studios, where he delivered remixes for Chaka Khan’s Love You All My Lifetime and Quincy Jones’ I’ll Be Good To You, both of which subsequently went to number one on the US Billboard Dance Chart.

From 1993 to 1995 Cevin teamed up with Cliff St.-Cyr, one of originators of the NYC house scene. They created classic anthems like House is a Feeling, Hands On Love, and Sweet in the Morning under several monikers and all released on the Cliff’s legendary Hardtrax label. These achievements did not go unnoticed, as Strictly Rhythm quickly licensed and re-released these tracks in order to catapult them to the widest audience possible.

Cevin continued to release tracks on Maxi, Nervous, Ministry of Sound and Subversive. Cevin’s next breakout hit was Women Beat their Men, which rocked every type of dance floor being played by everyone from Junior Vasquez and Juan Atkins to Louie Vega and Roger Sanchez. Follow-up tracks included Music Saved My Life, which also infiltrated every DJs record box and helped Cevin establish himself as a consistent chart topper and hit maker.

Simultaneously, his remixing skills were in high demand: after reaching Billboard Number 1 with his remix of Robert Miles Arista, the legendary Clive Davis called Cevin himself! That same year still committed to his original productions, Cevin released the dance floor stormer You Got Me Burning Up also hitting number one on Billboard dance charts and making a worldwide impact in the process.

As if Cevin’s productions could not get any bigger, The Freaks Come Out on the UK’s Subversive label pushed him into the house music stratosphere. Eventually licensed to at least five international labels, this single alone secured his reputation as one who had truly arrived, rocketing to the top spot on the US Billboard Club Chart and even into the UK Top 20 – an unprecedented result for a New York based DJ and producer. In 2008 Cevin revisited his classics You Got Me Burning Up! and Freaks, released with a host of remixes by dance megastars including Prok & Fitch and Rubberman.

In 2008 Cevin crashed the dance floor with Deliver Me and I’m Losing My Mind collaborations he created with Paul Harris on the Big Love/Defected label. He also collaborated with Prok & Fitch releasing Mundo on Floorplay. All of these tracks were featured on Pete Tong’s BBC one and Roger Sanchez Release Yourself radio shows and caned by the usual suspects: Steve Angelo, Erick Morillo, Danny Tenaglia, Victor Calderone, Behrouz, Tiesto, Steve Lawler and more. Another big tune in collaboration with the legendary Heller and Farley was We Built This House, and was released on the equally legendary Junior Boy’s Own label.

Cevin’s latest release I Don’t Mind featuring Paul Strive released on Cr2 Records has received sensational support including their other collaboration Losing My Mind.

Indeed there are very few major stars of the decks today who wouldn’t name check him as a seminal influence on their own work, and he has rightfully taken his place amongst the elite of A-list of international talent that continues to dominate and guide global dance culture.
