TOMMY MYST MONACO

 He's been a working DJ since before he could drive.  When he was 15 his parents used to take him to events where he'd set up his sound system, belt driven turntables and cassette players, and he'd rock the dance floor.  A few years later he started DJing Weddings for Elite Entertainment where in 2017 he celebrated his 20th anniversary, having played over 1,500 events for Elite.  In the 90s he starting playing raves and broke into the club scene, first at Stingrays in Old Bridge then on to the legendary Hunka Bunka where he took up a residency for five years spinning at Funktion Wednesdays. He also had a Thursday night residency at Philadelphia's Shampoo for many years. Tommy has spun in the Big Apple at The Tunnel, New Jersey at Club Abyss, Deko and Deejays and also in Philadelphia at Motion and Evolution.  Not content just to spin other people's music he has also produced his own originals.  He first appeared on the charts with 2008's "Control Your Body," as Myst & Monaco a track Danny Tenaglia often dropped into his sets.  And most recently he's been signed to Sektor Records where he's had multiple songs hit the Beatport chart. His original work finds him producing pounding Techno and Tech House.

JOHN LUTCHMAN

  Calling a DJ “up and coming” after he’s been honing his craft for two decades sounds strange, but it’s also accurate for DJ John Lutchman. He’s enjoyed a lot of upward trajectory over the past few years. For John Lutchman – formerly known as Johnnybee – love for music came early when he bought his first vinyl record at seven years old. Growing up in a musical family in Brooklyn, his passion grew with each record, cassette, and new upgrade that he added to his musical playground. It didn’t take long for him to make up his mind to take his passion to the next level. It’s hard to put a finger on his unique sound, but it’s heavily influenced by the breakbeats of the B-Boy era to the Caribbean sounds from his family heritage to a wide spectrum of the house music world, among other genres. A dedicated student to turntablism, his obsession with creativity and constant improvement earned him a number of competitive accolades and high-profile performances. His talents have been in demand in the club scene since he was 12, leading to sets in Miami, various legendary New York City nightclubs (Marquee, Cielo, Pacha), and an east coast college tour. The dynamic, high-energy open format sets that his loyal fans come to expect are equal parts precise technical skill, imaginative on-the-fly mashups, and good ol’ fashioned party rockin’. The “musical journey” is the crucial element of a John Lutchman set, and it happens by constantly introducing the crowd to new music, flipping old tracks, and rejecting the idea of mixing a song the same way twice. Now approaching over 20 years of honing his craft, John Lutchman is far from done with experimenting and expanding his voice. Refusing to rest on his laurels, he’s now setting his sights on production. He’s had recent success on original progressive house tracks and a hip-hop remix, but expect to find rough drafts in anything from drum and bass to electro-house to techno and trap on his computer; the creative process is rarely tied to any specific genre, but he truly prefers “quality over quantity” music. In the end, he’s still that curious 7-year-old kid with a vinyl record, and he just aspires to compose timeless music, make people dance, and breathe fresh new air into the industry.  “The man who has no imagination has no wings”. – Muhammad Ali

PRICE

c_qRixxO.jpg

Only a native New Yorker could burst onto the competitive music scene with electrifying energy like Price (born Jonathan Price Totaro). A man of many hats, he is a recording artist, producer, DJ, record label and clothing brand owner, and professional party king connoisseur. His original productions, remixes, and edits are a perfect blend of warm electro sounds with a rock twist. He incorporates gritty electronic beats, melodic synth leads, and banging vocals to incite crowds into a dance frenzy. It all started over 10 years ago: a young DJ spent countless hours in his bedroom blending his record collection, mashing up beats with funk and rock records on two turntables. Price quickly became a fixture in New York’s elite club scene, playing music for countless celebrities from Jay Z to Leonardo Dicaprio, Drake, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Uma Thurman, and Gwyneth Paltrow. He is a resident at 1OAK, SL, and Avenue in New York and has played around the country in Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Atlantic City. He has created his own signature sound of dance: a balanced blend of high-energy party music with equal parts influence from rock, indie, electro, disco, and even hip hop. From the bright lead synth in his single “Daylight” to the deep, disco groove in “Let it Feel,” Price stays true to himself while carving out a lane of his own. He is known to crisscross genres including something he calls “tropical space hop,” showcased in his remix of Outkast’s “Rosa Parks.” When he’s not touring the country, Price spends countless hours in the studio writing original tracks and remixing his favorite artists, and he often generously releases new music to his dedicated fans for free. In addition to his work with independent clothing label Reason and their two New York retail stores, Price created Reason Records, an independent dance music label that has released his own musical projects. Price is currently working on new material for his upcoming solo album, which will feature collaborations with a unique assortment of artists.

DENNIS FERRER

Dennis-Ferrer-620x330.jpg

Right place, right time. It's an old cliché, but it's one that's been the definition of Dennis Ferrer's musical career. Just as the dance music world was heading into the world of afro-centric house, Ferrer was there. And then, when it began to embrace the mix of tech and soul, Ferrer was there again, leading the way with his impeccable productions. As Ferrer goes, it seems, so does electronic music. And, as someone who's never content to do the same thing twice, it's clear that he'll be staying on top for years to come.

 

Right place, right time. It's an old cliché, but it's one that's been the definition of Dennis Ferrer's musical career. Just as the dance music world was heading into the world of afro-centric house, Ferrer was there. And then, when it began to embrace the mix of tech and soul, Ferrer was there again, leading the way with his impeccable productions. As Ferrer goes, it seems, so does electronic music. And, as someone who's never content to do the same thing twice, it's clear that he'll be staying on top for years to come.

Ferrer burst back into the consciousness of most dance music heads with the release of "Sandcastles," (Ibadan) his collaboration with Jerome Sydenham in 2003. A throwback to his techno roots as producer of the first ever release on Synewave in 1994 and mixed with a healthy dose of soul, the track was a massive hit for the duo. But, to his credit, Ferrer didn't simply repeat the formula afterwards. Instead, whether it's been the gospel house sounds of his remix of Blaze & Barbara Tucker's "Most Precious Love" (Defected) or the deeper-than-deep rework of Fish Go Deep's "The Cure & The Cause," (Defected) Ferrer has continued to push a variety of genres all at once. It's clear that Ferrer isn't content to rest on his laurels: he's too busy dreaming up new ways to shock and delight audiences.

Of course, we do say "back" into the consciousness of dance music heads because Ferrer has been around for far longer than 'Sandcastles'. He was crafting techno records in the mid-'90s as Morph and then had success in the Afro and gospel house scenes with releases via his Sfere label, an imprint he began alongside Kerri Chandler. "Sandcastles" merely marked his return to techno phase - and broadened his appeal to a new audience largely unfamiliar with his past work. But it's this past work that gives his new productions such resonance: unlike many of this house peers, Ferrer's techno experience has given him an edge that you can hear in his recent work.

"Son of Raw," (Ibadan) "Church Lady," (Defected) "Underground Is My Home," (King Street Sounds) and "Touched the Sky" (King Street Sounds) have all been huge dancefloor anthems and all show a different side of the Ferrer personality. As he's said in interviews, "It doesn't matter if it's gospel house, Brazilian house, jazz house, or whatever. As long as it's got soul and moves people, that's all that matters." Collected on his full-length The World As I See It (King Street Sounds), it's a sound that reached many different audiences. "Transitions" and "P2DaJ" were huge in the techno world, while the beautiful ode "How Do I Let Go" was a hit in the gospel house scene, the success of which has become bittersweet considering the recent passing of its vocalist, KT Brooks, one of Ferrer's favorite vocal collaborators.

Ferrer has brought that anything goes approach to his newest venture, Objektivity. The new imprint has thus far focused itself on vocals, featuring often unlikely turns from indie heroes like Ane Brun and Télépopmusik. Low slung and deep, Objektivity is a cutting-edge label in touch with its time, putting a uniquely American spin on the deep house revival that is currently making waves in Europe. And with releases from the likes of the young phenoms the Martinez Brothers (who are going from strength to strength) and classic New York house heads like Timmy Regisford and Quentin Harris, it's obvious that Ferrer doesn't regard the label as a vanity project. Objektivity is a living, breathing thing - one that's set to drop bombs on the dancefloor for years to come. 

Ferrer started out 2009 with quick acclaim from the top download store Beatport who awarded him Best Deep House Artist of 2009. But that wasn't enough to make Ferrer rest, for most of the year in-between a heavy DJ schedule, he's been hold up in his super secret Hoboken New Jersey studio slowly crafting what promises to be his best work to date - a brand newalbum tentatively entitled "The More Things Change."

Ferrer released the piano driven summer smash "Sinfonia Della Notte" on Strictly Rhythm in May 2009 which fans and press alike bugged over. DJ Mag said the single was leading the charge for a piano chord driven house music revival but we know Ferrer is just flexing one of his many skills. 

Just how much more was revealed in mid November when Ferrer unveiled his single "Hey Hey" for Objektivity which immediately caught on with DJs and with Mixmag UK who gave it a Big Tune review. UK radio DJ Pete Tong helped the noise too saying the record ‘gives me goose bumps, it’s quality from start to finish; it’s a return to the finest virtues of house music, this is brilliant.' 

Perhaps part of the appeal here is "Hey Hey" is vocal driven and so it's appropriate that Dennis has just been nominated for a Grammy for another vocal driven tune - his "Dennis Ferrer Objektivity Mix" of Dido's "Don't Believe In Love" (Arista). But vocals aren't all that's appealing with "Hey Hey" it's been drawing attraction for the superb production standards - something Dennis made even clearer when he decided to reveal part of the technical process behind the tune in the single' press release - Resident Advisor's reviewer commented - "even a novice like me can often hear how ridiculously sharp his productions are."

"The Red Room", 2010, marked Ferrer's follow up to "Hey Hey", has received accolades from the top DJs around the world. The unique vocal was cut during a wild studio session where the vocalist repeated one of the lines "Welcome To The Red Room Honey" which after some editing became the hook of the tune. Remixed by the Detroit prodigy Kyle Hall and "tech dubbed" by The Martinez Brothers & Jerome Sydenham, The Red Room became yet another modern classic.

Next up: "No Difference", a 2011 collaboration with Andre Hommen, yet another young talent, discovered by Ferrer. Deceptively simple, “No Difference” features retro drum pattern and repetitive vocal lines while also incorporating a warm, synth-fuelled groove. It's the smattering of piano keys and the the jacking groove that truly bring the funk though, ensuring Ferrer's latest is draped in vintage Objektivity characteristics. 

Dennis Ferrer isn’t known as a prolific remixer, but when he does turn his hand to something you can be sure that the result will be worth the wait. His November 2012 remix of "Underground" has been hammered across Ibiza all summer long, and for good reason. Developing the chords of the original beautifully and adding a devastatingly infectious organ lead-line, Ferrer builds and builds before unleashing huge, pounding keys for a truly breathless finale, shooting the track straight to Nr. 1 on the Beatport Deep House chart.

As always with Ferrer the best is yet to come. With a deep knowledge of the past and a constant push for the future, Ferrer remains one of the true greats of house music - a leader and innovator whose enjoying the buzz around him but keeping on pushing the limits. Stay tuned.

RIZ

Joseph Rizzo a.k.a. “DJ Riz” was born and raised in Brooklyn. His father bought him his first turntable at the age of 14. The other turntable came from summer job money that he had saved. Riz’s parents thought this was just a hobby for him. They were used to watching their son excel as a “3 sport athlete.” He started playing organized sports at the age of 8. In High School, Riz played Baseball, Basketball & Football. He was a “1st Team All-City Football Player” who later went on to star at Hofstra University. While his athletic talent was evident, his love for DJing & Music was rapidly growing.   It was in college when Riz first started doing radio. He DJ’d on the famous “P5” hip hop show at Hofstra with Jeff Foss. Furthermore, he did “The Hip Hop Spot” with Wildman Steve at Adelphi University in which they won “Best College Hip Hop Radio Show” at the Gavin Seminar in 1995. These 2 stations were instrumental in the late 80’s & early 90’s for numerous talents in Hip-Hop (Ed Lover, Dr. Dre, Public Enemy, De La Soul, Leaders Of The New School etc…)

In 1995, Riz brought his DJing talents to WNYU Radio, where he teamed with Mayhem and Sunset on a show called “NY Live.” In 1998, the “NY Live” show ended and was taken over by Lynn Gonzalez who attended the school. Riz and longtime friend from Fat Beats Records DJ Eclipse joined Lynn to create “The Halftime Radio Show.” Eclipse, till this day still hosts the show.   Riz along with DJ Eclipse were also the tour DJs for MC Serch (3rd Bass), which included an appearance on the Arsenio Hall Show. He was an original member of Funkmaster Flex’s “Flip Squad” DJ’s and appeared on different commercial radio stations as a guest DJ. Riz also won a 2 man DJ Battle in Chicago with DJ Skribble in his “Battle Days.”

Over the years, Riz has held residencies in some of the most iconic clubs in New York City (Homebase, Palladium, Limelight, Tunnel, Expo, and many others). Over the years he has played at countless venues across the United States as well as multiple countries overseas. Not to mention a bunch of celebrity gigs including Mike Tyson, Marcus Allen, Super Bowl & Pro Bowl, Heidi Klum just to name a few.

On the Production side of things, Riz teams with his neighborhood friend and partner DJ Sizzahandz to form “Crooklyn Clan.” They are responsible for the biggest club party anthems worldwide since 1995. “Be Faithful” (AV8 Records) featuring Fatman Scoop went platinum overseas and was featured in the movie “Save the Last Dance.” The Crooklyn Clan’s success has landed them remixes with Sean Paul, Funkmaster Flex, as well as others. Crooklyn Clan also had a featured radio mixshow on NY’s WKTU which aired every Saturday night showcasing their mashup style of mixing.

In 2011 Riz decided to explore one of his all time passions for house/dance music by collaborating with his longtime friend Chris Moody which eventually led to the formation of SikDuo. Riz’s monthly residency at Pacha’s Pachita room (since the club’s opening in late 2005) has also expanded to a main room residency for the Duo as well. In a short time SikDuo has gone from creating club hits with support from Kaskade, Tiesto, Chuckie, Bob Sinclar, Laidback Luke, David Guetta, Erick Morillo (to name a few) to playing at major events such as EDC New York with longtime friend, the legendary DJ Premier (from Gang Starr). SikDuo has also had their music on regular rotation on Sirius XM’s BPM and ElectricArea as well as featured on many international podcasts.

In 1992 he left South Carolina for New York to produce MC Serch's (who he had met in Columbia) sophomore album, which -- due to problems with label Def Jam -- was never released. In 1994, working at Wild Pitch Records in retail promotion, Eclipsemet Sabac, who, along with Ill Bill and Goretex, formed Non Phixion in 1995. Eventually Eclipse moved over to work at Fat Beats Records, also DJing for acts like Natural ElementsBeatnuts, and 3rd Bass.
