And Sébastian Léger thought 2006 was a bit of a crazy year! Turns out it wasn't a patch on 2007, his busiest to date. With a host of high profile remixes to kick things off, including reworks for Justin Timberlake and Duran Duran, he has also been busy adding his magic touch to a host of other DJ/producer types too, including Ida Engberg, Groove Armada and Eric Prydz, to name just a few.
Not content with releasing records on other people's labels (including Eric Prydz who has just signed his 'Terra' single), Léger has also set up his own label this year, Mistakes Music, the home for his new Planets project, which should be out within the next month or two.

Sébastian has also been taking to the road more than previous years with a gruelling DJ schedule that has seen him touch down in something like 20 different countries, including Singapore, Japan, Korea, Poland, Spain, Denmark, France, Amsterdam, Argentina and Columbia. He also played his first ever dates in Ibiza, which included memorable gigs at Space and Amnesia.
