DJ SURV â€“ Having been exposed to the sounds of electronic music since his teenage years, in particular techno and after also digging further into the electronic music genre and growing fond of groups such as Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode and New Order, he decided to pursue his dream of becoming a DJ and picked up a pair of Technics turntables a few years back and has never looked back. He recently joined the Astoria DJ Group (A.D.G.) based here in NYC and has been making more appearances in venues throughout the city including Recoup Lounge, UC Lounge, Vig Bar, Nana, Hachi, Tenjune, Marquee, Affaire, the MC and also at various venues on his home island of Malta during the summers of 2010 and 2011 among others.

DJ PASSIVE â€“ DJ'ing for over 10 years, this versatile turntablist is finding his way into the NY scene with his eclectic sounds and creativity on the decks. Always ready to surprise his audience, he's guaranteed to please the most discerning of ears!
Since the first time he bum rushed the DJ booth back in 2000 at the Enlisted Club on the Marine Corps base in 29 Palms, Ca, Antonio Cole AKA DJ Passive knew his true calling was behind the decks. His passion for music pushed him to save up his hard earned cash to buy his first pair of decks 5 years later and actively pursue DJ'ing when he got out the Marines. He entered his first competition in 2007 at the 2nd Annual Roc Raida Gong DJ Battle. Taking his experience with him, he later became affiliated with Astoria DJ Group and has started up Champion Sound Drum & Bass Sessions with fellow ADG'er Antonius. DJ Passive has spun at venues such as Public Assembly and Kush and has shared the stage with well known Hip Hop and Drum & Bass DJ's such as Mista Sinista, Dara, Odi, Paul C, 9X, Art Blakey III, A-Sides, Christian Bruna, and Jayline. Look out for him in future Champion Sound Drum & Bass Sessions.
