About the DJs:
COYU (NYC DEBUT)
Coyu is the name of war of Iván Ramos, a versatile guy born in the Summer of 1985, Barcelona. He's one of the most talented artists of the current European music scene. As DJ, Coyu is daring, eclectic and innovative, he always stares at the future, although he lives the present and learns from the past. Label owner of Suara and Atypical Farm and with a well-know career as musical journalist, promoter and booking agent on the past, Coyu is a multifaceted artist involved in the electronic music scene since many years ago. The international acclaim as producer arrived with "El Baile Alemán" along his partner Edu Imbernon released in liebe*detail last Spring'09. Artists, media and clubbers supported that big dance floor bomb immediately. It was overall #1 on Beatport 2009, top5 on most charted tracks ever on Resident Advisor and played by Richie Hawtin, Ricardo Villalobos, Sven Väth, Loco Dice, Marco Carola and all the current international star system. During all 2009 he was releasing big stuff along Edu or his other partner, Uner, on big labels like Dynamic Music, Great Stuff, Saved Records, 2020Vision, Trapez or Cr2. That stuff was also supported by huge DJs like Luciano, Laurent Garnier, Âme, Mark Knight, Dennis Ferrer, Matthew Dear or DJ Hell, to name just a few. During 2009 was touring all Europe playing and showing his skills as DJ. Least but not the last, Coyu got 6 nominations on the Dance Spanish Awards 09 called Deejaymags at the endings of 2009. He was nominated as Best DJ, Best Newcomer DJ, Best Newcomer Producer, Best Track (El Baile Aleman / Raw Sweat), Best Label (Suara). 2010 is starting to be a big year for him: won two Deejaymags awards, did his first gigs in North American, played in Toronto, Chicago, Miami and Playa del Carmen (México) and is going to release some stuff on big labels like Get Physical, Rebirth, Noir Music, Bangbang! or Tronic and his first solo track called "D.E.G" (released 5th April) is supported by Carl Cox, Luciano, Laurent Garnier, Loco Dice, Pete Tong, Joris Voorn, Michel Cleis, Danny Tenaglia, 2000 And One, Anja Schneider and many others.
Cesar has quickly made a name for himself with releases on Circus Company, Serialism, Safari Electronique and others, with his “Chocopop Jazz"—released under the name Cesar Maravillas—making a huge splash in 2008. Making his debut appearance on cadenza in 2009 Cesar touched down like a cyclone with his ep Descarga (already known to clubbers as a highlight of Luciano’s recent sets) made in collaboration with Pablo Cahn Speyer. With residencies at T-Bar and Lo*Kee where his colorful, upbeat sets provide a soundtrack perfectly calibrated for the feel-good hedonism of some of London’s most celebrated parties, Cesar got the chance to play as well in some of the hottest clubs (Fabric, the Key, Canvas), but also in Ibiza (Space), Detroit (Works) and on the continent Germany (Watergate, Week End, Bar 25, Club Der Visionaere) Italy, France, Ireland, spain, Netherlands...
MICHAEL VIEIRA (resident)
New York native Michael Vieira has been influenced by music for as long as he can remember. Exposed at an early age, he first picked up DJing from his father who granted him full access to his own turntables and vinyl collection. Since then the art form has become a therapeutic method of self expression he has finely tuned throughout the years..
Specializing in his own blend of tech house, one can find hints of deep, soul, funk and latin rhythms in his sets. A true music lover at heart, he is looking forward to the year ahead, confident it will bring his sound to new audiences. Creating a vibe is what he considers most important and what he strives to revive and spread as best as he can.
This past year Michael launched his latest project titled Greater>Than. This new concept debuted at Cielo, NYC and has plans to bring in some the best new and underground talent there is. As resident of the event, he is eager to collaborate with these artist to bring a new look and energy to the city he calls home.
