From: USA (NY, NY)

Style: house

Best Known For: Spinning for the stars

The son of famous toy manufacturer Russell Berrie, David grew up with the opportunity to do anything he wanted… including nothing. He took piano and violin lessons early on, eventually landing at something a bit cooler, turntables.

Inspired by NY icons like Louie Vega, Danny T, A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul; by 16 Berrie had honed his skills and was sneaking out of the house to spin at small clubs in Manhattan. From there it was cake.

Been There, Done That: Having performed events for Diddy, Giselle, GQ and Esquire, Berrie’s inner talent eventually came bursting out. With all that instrumental training and all that NY influence, it was only a matter of time before he traded the posh VIP scene for the infectious, let it all hang out world of electronic dance music.

He certainly has our signature!

 

Bio


David Berrie has played innumerable bold-face-name parties for the likes of Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Gisele Bundchen, and Pharrell Williams. He’s a staple at the most exclusive nightclubs around the world. Top promoters and music aficionados across the globe seek him out. It’s nice work if you can get it, but for David Berrie none of it truly matters.

“I know it sounds corny,” David Berrie says, “but what really matters to me is making great music—music that reaches people, music with integrity, music that makes people dance.” The unassuming 24-year old goes on to cite a constellation of luminary DJs who have inspired him early on: Carl Cox, Louie Vega, and Danny Tenaglia. Which begs the question, what gives this young, talented upstart the nerve to name-check such DJ royalty in conjunction with himself? Hard work and talent.

David Berrie wasn’t born with a silver slipmat on his 1200s. His mother, a Korean immigrant, and his father, the son of Bronx-based Russian immigrants, settled in Englewood, NJ. His dad was the marketing genius behind those ubiquitous Troll dolls. His parents made him study classical piano and violin years before he got his decks. He reached that milestone at the tender age of 13 with two Technics and a used Vestax mixer.

“My older sister originally turned me onto hip-hop,” David Berrie explains. “I got really into golden-era late-80s and early-90s Native Tongues stuff — A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Brand Nubian and other artists like KRS-One, EPMD, and Rakim.” His love of music and his enterprising ways found full expression in his thriving junior high school business making CD mixes for classmates. “It was my first experience curating music,” he says. “It was going great, until the principle called me into his office…”

As hip-hop in the late-90s became increasingly commercialized, David Berrie found refuge in the underground. “I started deeper and deeper into the dance scene,” he explains. “I started discovering DJs like Danny Krivit and Frankie Knuckles, and Larry Levan. I began loading up on classics from Fat Beats and Satellite Records.”

At 16, after endless hours spent in his basement, this self-taught DJ landed his first paying club gig in NYC from a handed over promo cd. At the time, David was sneaking out on buses to shuttle to his gigs. From then on David’s aspirations and masterful skills quickly took him from small rooms to the country’s most high-profile nightclubs including Tao Las Vegas, Webster Hall New York, and Liv Miami.

Soon he became the go-to DJ for international high-profile parties playing for luxury brands like GQ and Vogue and traveling to London, France, Italy, Spain, Mexico, and Croatia. Though he doesn’t like to talk about it, David’s style didn’t go unnoticed; US Weekly recently named him one of “The 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers.”

Most recently, David Berrie has been recording original tracks. President and CEO of dance music mega-label Ultra Records, only needed to hear one of David’s tracks to sign him. This summer single “Take a minute” is due for release in August 2010.

From: USA (Washington, DC)

Style: Jet-black, polished chrome techno

Famous Tracks: Emissions, Roadkill, Ribcage, Rabid

Best Known For: Being one-half of Grammy Award winning EDM pioneers and DJ Mag perennial top 10 duoDeep Dish. Winning Best Minimal Artist and Best Techno Artist at the Beatport Music Awards during his solo career. Founding the SCI + TEC digital label.

DJ Mag Rank: 74

It’s about time we had Dubfire back! The dance music pioneer did his little thing with Deep Dish, you know… multiple DJ Mag Top 10’s, a Grammy, nothing huge. Then he started crushing the world of techno!

DC’s EDM prodigy is one of the most in demand techno acts in the world. His relentless tour schedule leaves little time to run his SCI + TEC label, yet somehow he puts out some of the best new tech artists. Dubfire is so accomplished, in fact, that Native Instruments has him road testing their latest Traktor Kontrol S4 before it enters the production stage.

If it seems like he hasn’t released anything in a bit, that’s because Dubfire has an arsenal of half-finished tunes waiting in the wings. Needless to say, the world of techno is going to be under Dubfire’s blanket in 2011.

 

Bio

Ali Shirazinia, known by his stage name Dubfire, left the comforts of a storied career as one-half of Grammy-winning duo Deep Dish in order to pursue new life as a producer of “jet-black, polished chrome techno.” Such daring reinvention is not for the faint of heart – yet Dubfire in just three short years has emerged as a technological innovator, an acclaimed producer, and the owner of the lauded SCI+TEC Digital Audio record label.

Opening Set by Pleasurekraft

Thursday February 17, 2011
Lima Lounge 1401 K St NW

Doors Open at 10pm, Ages 18+

Show Preview

From: France

Style: Anything funky that kicks ass

Famous Tracks: Hello (feat. Dragonette), One 2.3 Four, C’est La Vie

Best Known For: Being a French icon. A deadly overhead smash.

DJ Mag Rank: 55

Martin Solveig is definitely one of the more intriguing characters in the DJ world. One listen to his production style and a look at his music videos says it all. The guy’s got a certain panache about him unmatched by most.

His level in the DJ hierarchy is one many hope to reach and few will ever achieve. He has worked closely with superstar fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier on numerous projects. He mentioned once that his favorite artist was Prince, the next thing he new, Prince’s camp was making remix requests.

Check out his TV episode feat. ‘Hello.’ It’s got cameos from Bob Sinclar and superstar tennis icons Novak Djokovic and Gael Monfils!

Clearly Marty gets love. The night he arrives at Lima Lounge will be one for the ages. Few DJs with the staggering amount of YouTube views he has spin at venue as intimate as Lima. How lucky are we? Well, we are Glow, so very lucky.

 

Bio


2009 couldn’t have gone much better for Martin Solveig who has long been synonymous with forward-thinking electronic music for over a decade. Fresher than ever, the Frenchman’s whirlwind year has seen him adorned by his homeland as well as re-establishing himself as an electro-pop icon, not to mention breaking into the top 50 of DJ Mag’s prestigious Top 100 poll.

Awarded the Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres for his contribution to the arts in his homeland and across the world, appreciation for Solveig’s work is greater than ever, having also scooped the Artiste de Musiques Electroniques de l’Année at the French Victoires de la Musique last year.

Musically, Martin has remained at the forefront of the medium he adores; maturing like a fine French wine, Solveig’s irrepressible touch has coined successive hits from his latest album ‘C’est la Vie’, released in June 2008. ‘C’est la Vie’, ‘I Want You’ and ‘One 2.3 Four’ haven taken the airwaves by storm and demonstrated Martin’s primed production skills and electric approach – note, interestingly The Strokes was the key inspiration for making the album.

2009 and the masterfully engineered electro-pop powerhouse ‘Boys & Girls’ started life following a chance meeting between Martin and ‘fashionista’ Jean-Paul Gaultier. A shared admiration for each other’s work gave birth to the track that’s video, shot at Gaultier’s ‘Maison de Couture’, has gone on to amass over one million hits on Youtube. Bowing to public demand, a full release was scheduled globally featuring remixes from Laiback Luke, Les Petits Pilous, Bart B. More and David E. Sugar.
‘Boys & Girls’ featured on the ‘C’est la Vie Remixes’ album that was released for free across Europe through publications as a thank you to fans from Martin. A genuine gesture from the humble Parisian who enlisted some of his favourite producers to work on the alternative version of the album, including Fedde Le Grand, Laidback Luke and Felix Da Housecat, among others.

With over ten years in the industry under his belt, the French maestro continues to ‘woo’ audiences around the world and he has the awards to prove it. Relentlessly keeping one step ahead of the game, with ‘Boys & Girls’ still bubbling successfully and Martin back in the studio, 2010 looks set for Solveig to step up once again… but hey… what do you expect from the irrepressible, formidable Frenchman.

Opening Set by Roberto Gonzalez

Saturday, February 12 2011
Fur Nightclub 33 Patterson St NE
Doors Open at 10pm, Ages 18+

Show Preview

From: USA (Miami)

Style: Progressive Trance

Famous Tracks: Falling Backwards, True Love, The Reaper

Best Known For: Being a legend. Residing at Miami’s infamous Shadow Lounge at its height.

George Acosta was the first artist ever booked at Glow. He continued to be Glow’s biggest draw for over 5 years, outselling the current giants. His impact on trance is unparalleled. Whether it’s progressive, melodic, uplifting, techy, fast, slow, it doesn’t matter. George has affected the career of every trance artist today. No one can argue with that.

He defined the sound of South Beach.

 

Bio

Trance, whether you like your trance melodic and uplifting, or hard and fast, trance by any definition is here to stay. From the warehouse parties of the late 80’s to car commercials in 2001, trance has become part of the new millennium, part of our lifestyle. And all because of DJs like George Acosta. George proves every time he puts a needle on a record that “trance”, whatever the label, has changed, evolved, become a lifestyle, a culture… as well it should. With over 15 years of experience as a DJ and producer, George has helped change and evolve trance from an underground movement to massive festival experiences throughout the world. “George Acosta is probably America’s most unique DJ and has undoubtedly been a major force in shaping the sound of trance in Miami and beyond” says fellow DJ Dave Ralph. George Acosta is America’s representative in the global Trance scene.

Coming up playing warehouse parties in his native Miami, he then went on to producing tracks of his own with such international hits like Planet Soul, Emotions, Taking Over Space, R U Awake and The Reaper. He then made the next logical step for a successful DJ/producer and opened his own record store, Grooveman Music in Miami.

He knows his crowds so well because he is just as big a fan as they are of his music. Just like the thousands he plays for, George Acosta lives it. George tries to maintain a close connection to the people who come to hear him play because like them, he discovered the music as a fan first.

It was during his three-year residency at Miami’s famed Shadow Lounge that George honed his craft and began educating South Beach to this wonderful emotional roller-coaster ride that was quickly moving west from Europe. Now firmly entrenched in South Beach, George produced his first mix cd, “Awake”. This became the definitive sound of South Beach. It was this same cd that helped propel George on to the world stage.

With record bag and headphones in hand, George prepared to move the planet in his own unique way. He began playing some of the biggest clubs and festivals in the world, Berlin’s Love Parade, Miami’s Ultra Beach Festival and Rave on the Rocks to name a few. And with demand for George reaching a fever pitch, he produced his second mix cd,”Release: AM and PM”. This ambitious double cd was representative of his legendary all night sets, evoking the different emotions and textures of his sets, from epic, string-soothed splendor to searing tech-trance.

The demand for all things George Acosta soon led to other successful mix cds: such as “Trance Nation America” through Ministry of Sound along with his latest release entitled “History of Trance” on Ultra Records. George is also currently in the studio working on some original material with such artists as worldwide sensation Jon Secada among others.

“Traveling to different places and countries every week, playing for so many people–it makes me want to play more intimate stuff,” he explains. “I used to play harder. Now I’m into the more melodic stuff. I guess when you grow into this scene you want to play records that mean something.” George proves he’s a trance DJ that can move onto something bigger and better. “Whenever I play anywhere, I feel like I am at home, I look down to the dance floor and I see my people, they understand me, they understand what is happening as I spin my records.” It’s a journey that happens week after week, and George is their guide.
