In a remarkably short time, the two both very unique talents of Michael Ware and Joe Benger have propelled themselves from humble beginnings, to one of the most promising young collaborations to emerge from Australia.Michael, a classically trained pianist and DJ/producer of over 10 years had already managed t o et ch his name into the EDM scene with his remix of Imogen Heap’s “Headlock”, receiving fervent airplay from various DJ’s. In 2009, he was able to edge out an onslaught of entries by winning Sean Tyas’ “Melbourne” remix competition, which on release shot to top 10 on the Audio Jelly dance charts.Meanwhile, Joe established himself a true electronic artist, supporting some of the biggest international names to grace Perth’s shores. Joe’s talent as a DJ and producer soon garnered the attention of Afterhours.fm – who offered him a residency which now draws thousands of loyal listeners each month. Armin Van Buuren wasn’t far to follow – playlisting Joe’s material on his A State of Trance radio show.Illuminor was soon forged on a foundation of great friendship, and a love for the purest melodic compositions. In 2010, Illuminor went live – fully harnessing Michael’s classical and contemporary experience and Joe’s painstaking attention to detail. The two rocketed to establish themselves as a household name in WA’s club scene whilst also tackling the almighty festival circuit, playing headline slots at Creamfields and at Stereosonic alongside heavyweights Deadmau5, Skrillex, Armin Van Buuren, Dash Berlin, Ferry Corsten and many more. Shortly thereafter the boys were honoured in being asked to warm up for Above & Beyond alongside Anjunabeats stalwarts Jaytech and Mat Zo on the 2011 Group Therapy world tour.The two also buckled down in the studio – producing original tracks which translate perfectly to the counterpart of their live performances.
