Ian Carey is an American house DJ, musician and record producer based in Miami, United States. Carey has performed as a disc jockey since 1993 and worked as a record producer since 1998. Working with Jason Papillon (see DJ Jason Brooks) as part of Soul Providers, their first single, "Rise", reached No. 59 on the UK Singles Chart.


Unhappy with the house music scene in America, Carey moved to the Netherlands from the US in 2003 and then on to Spain in 2006. In 2008, Ian Carey released the single "Get Shaky" (released as The Ian Carey Project) which peaked at No.2 in Australia and entered the top-10 in the UK, Belgium and New Zealand. The singles achieved Double Platinum certification in Australia and Gold certification in New Zealand. The song also won the award for Best Dance Video at the MTV Australia Awards 2009. Ian is now based in Miami, but spends much of the year touring internationally.

Ian Carey has been a part of the worldwide house music scene for a number of years.

Carey grew up in a small town in Maryland, USA, about 2 hours from Washington DC. His father was a live sound engineer and ran a sound reinforcement company and had engineered for such groups as Kool & The Gang and The Duke Ellington Orchestra.

Carey became involved with dance music while in college. He had already experimented with the graffiti-writing scene in Baltimore, MD, where he met a number of hip-hop DJs, which led to him becoming involved in DJing. He was also introduced to house music while working at a record store. The success of Carey's first self-produced single "Rise" later influenced him to move to Europe to pursue a career in dance music production. His song "Get Shaky" reached the top ten and was world champion Czech Republic's official goal song at the IIHF Ice Hockey World Cup in Germany. In 2011 Ian collaborated with Snoop Dogg and Bobby Anthony on his single "Last Night" which was also remixed by Afrojack.
