As an International performer and young entrepreneur, Adrian Ravelo (NYC) has graced dance floors from the US to Europe; commencing his DJ experience in 1999, and making it his profession in 2003. Ravelo's individual sound is best described as an atmospheric blend of rich, soulful, moody, deep house and techno with highlights of Jazz, Latin, Disco, Funk, and Soul elements. Colorful melodies, deep bass lines, and stinging percussion are managed seamlessly together to create a unique blend of music that will appeal to all who can hold a rhythm. Ravelo has toured from New York City through Washington, DC; Miami, Puerto Rico, Las Vegas, Dubai, Scandinavia and other territories bringing in his groovy, moody touch of house to not only substantial dance floors but to more intimate venues as well. When Ravelo is not in the studio or rocking out with people on the floor, faithful fans and listeners can find him hosting his new audio editorial platform "SoundPark" on PulseRadio.Net
Christian Voldstad acquired his love of electronic music listening to Pete Tong on the radio while growing up in the UK. It wasn’t until he moved to New York, however, that he would attend his first underground techno party and find the sound that would capture him and inspire him to step behind the decks himself. Since then, Christian has become a staple of the underground scene, a party enthusiast, and an avid techno tourist.
Most recently, Christian’s travels to destinations such as Ibiza, Detroit, and Miami have inspired him to bring a similar energy and vibe to New York’s nightlife. Setting out to make his mark, he’s founded the mischievous T-Rex Thursdays, a monthly party in Manhattan’s fabled Lower East Side where he can explore his love of vinyl records, underground house, and funky bass lines.
Given an inherent appreciation and understanding of music, Seth Hosko possesses an ideal résumé for mastering the art of mixing records. Despite being terrified to touch a mixer three years ago, he has nearly a lifetime of musical experience with a variety of instruments including violin, cello, and piano.
Seth stepped up for his first major gig in early 2013, opening for his DJ hero Brad Miller during one of his respected Push The Night events at the legendary Sullivan Room. Since then, he has been invited to play with friends at Verboten, Wobble, Ebb+Flow, Exile, and Carmel Productions with notable artists including Matthew Dear, Matt Tolfrey, Michael Christopher, and Naveen G.
Crafting a decidedly organic class of deep house and techno, Seth’s individual style reflects the instrumental roots that initially shaped his musical temperament – melodies and experimental elements strewn with both elegance and sophistication. Wherever he takes us next, we'll be there - eyes closed, hands in the air, and a smile on our face.
Terron Darby is shining his light proving that experience and deep understanding make him one of the freshest talents on the east coast house music scene.
Co founder of Miami based DJ collective DHM (Deep House Movement), Darby has been deeply entrenched in the house community since the early 90’s. From managing a record store, to his foundational music composition roots as a professional audio engineer, to a technology educator with loads of accolades to boast… through it all, he has found his way into a new place on his musical passageway in New York.
Darby knows his way around music and while he could adopt the “been there, done that attitude” rather adopts an infectious and luminous personality, solid perspective of balance paired with a zealous dedication to his calling.
With a focus on his own production efforts, worldwide exposure, and New York party movement "PLAYDATE”–It’s apparent his accomplishments thus far are paying off and receiving love not just from the dance floor, but also from peers and the industry alike. At the core, Darby’s quest in music thrives from emotion –the feeling of positive energy and blissful expression.
“Anything that’s this special to me (as music) in such a powerful way - I simply want to share this feeling so that the person experiencing it can create their own story with it. If something is good it will find its way . . .”
