DJ SURV - 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 RVL, 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.

NICK THOMPSON – Nick Thompson (aka Nasty Nick) is generally considered to be a techno/ progressive house DJ, though he does not limit himself to any one genre. Born in Jacksonville, Florida, Nick delved into electronic music in the mid 90's listening to groups like Crystal Method and Rabbit in the Moon. However, the Album that changed everything was Global Underground's John Digweed (Sydney). After listening to this in 1999 Nick found his calling and began DJ'ing in early 2000. Nick quickly earned a residency at a local Jacksonville nightclub (The Cellar, 2001) where Nick's dark groovy sounds earned him the "Nasty" tag early on. Since moving to Orlando in 2002, Nasty Nick has had the opportunity to play at shows with internationally renowned talent such as: Paul Oakenfold, Hybrid and Kenneth Thomas. 2010 was a year of change and new opportunity for Nasty Nick as he moved to the house music hub of the United States, New York City. He also went on a three stop mini tour in Russia, where he played an epic five hour set to a packed house at Stena in Leningradskaya followed by a 2 hour afterhours set at Figaro. He wrapped up his trip to Russia by closing down a huge outdoor party on the Don River, rocking till the sun came up. Check out some of his sounds here:
T-MIC - From the first time he heard the sounds of a radio in his hospital incubator, DJ T-MIC knew that music would be an important part of his life journey. An accomplished jazz guitarist and graduate of the Manhattan School of Music, T-MIC turned to the wheels of steel in college where his exposure to hip hop and electronic music naturally led to DJ’ing. His first foray into the DJ art form came in 2005 when T-MIC worked at the famed Bush Radio in Cape Town acquiring an appreciation for the city’s diverse hip hop, deep house and Kwaito scene.
With the help of fellow DJs Cristina Ralphaeli and MisterBside, T-MIC founded the Astoria DJ Group (A.D.G.) in March 2009 which has grown to be NYC’s largest underground DJ collective dedicated to supporting the community and art form. TMIC has dropped the needle at locations throughout NYC including Kush Lounge, Moomia Lounge, VIG Bar, LIC Bar, DiWine, Hachi, Nana and SIP Lounge.
