Leo Guerrero, one of the Dominican Republic’s biggest DJs, has been blowing fans away allover the world with a mixture of Caribbean and African rhythms. He started his career back in 1989 here in the USA implementing his talent as a DJ just when "House" music was becoming popular worldwide. Leo played in many lounges and clubs that were of that era in New York. He included in his sets tracks from producers in the likes of Todd Terry, David Morales, Frankie Knuckles, Jungle Brothers, Etc.
In 1996 Leo left to the Dominican Republic, where he started his recording studio and began to produce for musical groups like Alta Tension and Sandy y Papo, never leaving behind his passion for Progressive Music. He became known in Santo Domingo as DJ EFX when the echo of House music was just reaching the Dominican Republic. The first time he played commercially was in the famous Cafe Atlantico in Lincoln. From then on, the attention Leo’s musical style attracted was explosive.
Leo returned to New York in 2001 looking to widen his horizons and trying to reach new dimensions. He is presently working on Zona Muzik , one of his most prized projects. Leo currently has more than 70 tracks under his belt. His unique style not only uses the musical elements of "House" but also "Tribal Break Beat Tech-House," all melting into Progressive. Leo Guerrero has shared the decks with the likes of Anthony Papa, John Creamer, Stephan K., Sandra Collins, Dave Ralph, Angel Alanis, and local favorite DJ Fame.

After a nice farewell to Arizona, Bronz moved to New York City in April 2002 then to begin his career in DJ’ing in March of 2003. Mostly spinning on his decks at home, he met a resident DJ of a popular NYC hang out. DJ Nicolae of the extremely well known NYC party, Playground, was the beginning point as Bronz's debut began on September 11th, 2003. Ever since then he hasn't looked back. He has aggressively booking gigs at popular night spots such as Filter 14, Punch, Le Souk, Opium Den, Faluka, Delft, Bauhaus, Keybar and Industry. Bronz has all ready gained much more respect than he's expected and continues to energize the crowd with his flow of deep tribal to techy progressive house beats. Make sure not to miss his More` Music debut!
Inspired by the belief that nothing can bring people together the way dance music can, Down Deep (Mike Prieto & Kevin Finn) have been spreading their unique funky house sound throughout NYC and beyond via their own Down Deep parties, as well as, numerous guest appearances.
Playing alongside some of house music's finest DJ/Producers such as Kaskade, Fred Everything, Colette, Wally Lopez, Phil Weeks, and Hott 22, to name a few, Down Deep have had the opportunity to share their passion for house music with their fans at some of NYC's best venues. Included in the list are Cielo, Crobar, Sol, Sullivan Room, Cellar Bar, Canal Room, BLVD, Le Souk and many many more. At any Down Deep event, expect nothing but good music, good vibes, and most importantly..... expect to get down!
Craig Dubs is a new name on the NYC House circuit. Coming from a breakbeat background playing parties under the alias Chill Whitey, he has played at venues such as Big Six, Buddha Lounge, Downtime, Sin Sin, Sullivan Room, and Sol. He has opened up for and spun alongside DJs and producers such as Deekline and Wizard, DJ Garth, Sensei, Liquid Todd and All Good Funk Alliance to name a few. His sets range from deep, soulful sounds to jackin' funky house all cut up, mixed, and dropped right on the dance floor. Keep an eye out for him in 2006.
Joel van Bochove, known as Joel VB, fell in love with house music on the dancefloor of the beloved club Vinyl. It was during Be Yourself Fridays with the legendary Danny Tenaglia when Joel discovered his true love of the music and the scene. He grew up listening to the dance music and disco from the 70s that his parents played at home and later on he started going out to clubs. The DJs would spin records that kept him dancing until he couldn't feel his legs. Outside of the clubs he began DJ’ing at weddings and learned the art of spinning records and connecting with the people on the dance floor.
After being introduced to the club scene in NYC, he realized DJ’ing was so much more than making a bunch of people dance at a wedding. He wanted to do play the music that he grew to love. He wanted to tell a STORY with his music. This brings him to where he is today. He still DJ's (and loves it) and he still connects with the people, but with the music that he loves. Joel tells that story of his love for music with every record he plays.
