1200 Warriors consist of DJ Junior Rivero AKA DJ Rivero & DJ Choco AKA G-Dubs (chief engineer for the Wu-tang Clan & RZA) Influences derive from the streets of Washington Heights in NYC, their ethnic roots, and mixture of dance music to hip-hop & everything in between.
In 2004, Defected Records picked up one of their tracks titled "Gangsta House" with the legend KRS-ONE, which was featured on the Jazzy Jeff Compilation and has been re-released on Slaag Traxx.
Since then the two have made and continue to make their mark with releases and remixes on their own label 1200 Traxx as well as respected labels including Aroma Records, Defected Records, Ministry of Sound, Detour Recordings, 4kenzo Recordings, Greenskeepers Music, Flatpack Traxx, Jack The System, Magnetic, Oomph Recordings, Guesthouse Recordings, Moist Music Compilations, and Pastada Records.
Their own label 1200 Traxx began in 2007 featuring collaborations with Michelle Weeks, Ky-Mani Marley, Craig Mitchell, KRS-ONE, and Wu-Tang Clan. Some of their releases include "At Last," "Jazzo," "Bonafied," with Craig Mitchell. "Roder Ruder," with Michelle Weeks; and "Loose Control," featuring the Wu-Tang Clan off their debut album "Live from NY."
In 2010, Beatport.com named this 16 year veteran of the West Coast electronic music scene its runner-up, Chillout Artist of the Year, solidifying a creative musical presence that only continues to evolve.
Influenced by the early funk-jazz sound of underground house trailblazers, Mark Farina and Derrick Carter, Callerio spent much of the ‘90s crafting sets that paired the defining vocals of the West Coast scene with deep, chunky basslines. In 1997, he launched Dufflebag Records on the critical strength of two of his original EPs, “Deju vu/Whispers” and “In Your Arms/Thisgo.” His signature, subtly infectious beats soon ebbed their way onto 29 internationally known labels.
Today, Callerio has expanded his music endeavors beyond the box of underground house by evolving his sound, artistic diversions, and even his own name to keep pace with electronic music’s ever-changing pulse. In the past year alone he crafted more than 40 original tracks and remixed 15 others on various labels under the monikers of Wally Callerio and Poncho Warwick. As Warwick, he held the #1 spot for seven consecutive month’s on Beatport.com’s Chillout Top 100 list for his celebrated single, “Tainted Jazz.” Callerio’s long road of late gigs and longer sets also landed him a creatively directive role as music supervisor for the forthcoming house music documentary “Unconscious Therapy.”
In 2011, Callerio is once again digging deep into the studio, where he puts a new spin on his R&B influenced vocals for Mark Farina’s Great Lakes Audio Label. With an album mix-down project for R&B artist Jon B set for completion before its 11/11/11 release, Callerio aims to maintain a tour schedule consistent with the early days and late nights that laid the musical blueprints for his career.
