About Adam Collins..
Since his emergence from the Chicago underground in the mid 90’s, he's been synonymous with the true underground Tech-House movement in America, well before the upstart of the genre's l buzzword.
Together with music partner Marky Star, he started Omni A.M. and Euphoria Records which gained recognition on both sides of the Atlantic as the first U.S. innovators of what is now called “Tech-House”.
Omni A.M. quickly achieved cult status, finding their way into the crates of such influential DJ’s as Derrick Carter, Mr. C, “Evil” Eddie Richards, and Terry Francis while “Beat Dis,” a breaky analog salute to dance culture, even landed on Tyrant DJ’s Lee Burridge & Craig Richards’ prestigious mix compilation for Fabric.
As a DJ, Adam has played countless club sets and radio appearances around the world including Air, Maniac Love, Module (Japan), Turnmills, Kiss FM, The Church (London), Home / Aura (Lima, Peru), Blues Club (Quito, Ecuador), Cha Cha (Bogota, Colombia), 1015 Fulsom (San Francisco), Spundae / Circus (LA), Crobar (Chicago), Arc, Vinyl, Pacha (New York), as well as spots in Mexico, Dominican Republic, Canada, Scotland and possibly your bedroom if you are lucky. You know who you are.
About Steven Letigre..
In 1996, Steven LeTigre moved to Florida where he stumbled onto the house scene that was in full swing due to the likes of Sasha and John Digweed. He then returned to New York two years later and began his DJ career. Influenced and inspired by his friends Larry Banks, Dave Cannalte, Luis Diaz, and Lee Burridge, LeTigre procured a style of his own, one that he considers to be "a sexy and techy vibe, with a certain groove that pulls you in." As a native of Zimbabwe, LeTigre’s style of house music was influenced at an early age by strong beats and deeply embedded rhythms. This influence, accompanied by many years growing up in New Jersey, moments away from New York City’s house music scene, is what’s made LeTigre’s style its own. LeTigre’s originality, determination, and unwavering dedication to create new sounds, has garnered him high respect amongst his fellow DJ’s and devoted fan base. As DJ and roommate Gaby Dershin – (AstroGlyde), once put it, “when you listen to LeTigre spin you get a sense of who he is…if you didn’t know him before, you will when he’s done.” It’s these rave reviews that allow LeTigre to play and continue pursuing house music as an ass shaking art form. As quoted by one of DJ Magazine’s top music editor’s, “LeTigre not only puts everything he is into his music, but everything he’s ever wanted, and everything he wants to be…I can’t wait to see what the next few years will bring for him.” During the course of 2003 and into 2005, LeTigre has maintained successful weekly residencies at some of New York’s most respectable parties. He has helped create that distinct vibe at the legendary Le Souk, as well as opening up for Sandra Collins. He has also thrown down at some of Miami’s most notable Winter Music Conference parties. Throughout his young career LeTigre has played along side some of the world’s most prominent DJs like; DJ Three, Terry Francis, Steve Lawler, Sean Cusik, Adam Collins, Lee Burridge, Steve Porter, Luis Diaz, Pete Bones and many others. On an international level, LeTigre has become a staple in the South American house music diet, while continuously playing venues all over North America. Currently, LeTigre is working with some of Great Britain’s and Canada’s top club promoters in order to establish permanent bi-monthly and quarterly residencies. In addition to his many accomplishments, 2004-2005 brought about the launch of LeTigre’s own record label, Subtropical records, with partner Vincent Casanova. Gaining rave reviews for the release of his two most popular productions, "Tacit Consent" and "Much Too Sexy" which was charted at #14 on the Balance May 2006 chart. Letigre is currently working on his 6th CD and putting together a North American tour. Here's a recent set Live@Bar 13
