DAVID EATON – A native New Yorker, this dedicated musician first hit the Athens DJ scene in the summer of 1999 spinning dance music for the city’s upper class crowd at mainly residential venues. David furthered his DJ’ing talents after moving to the island Crete, where he was able to play commercial and progressive House music for multinational crowds at many of the island’s most famous clubs and beach parties.
David had then returned to Athens and had played for the masses at all of the city’s largest clubs and venues, taking up residencies as well as making special guest appearances under the alias Lory D, and spinning along side such talent as the UK’s own Keith Lawrence, Maxi Jazz of Faithless, as well as American superstar Fatman Scoop to name a few. This was simultaneously enjoyed by a weekly weekend time slot at Athens Radio DJ 95.2fm, giving the Athenians a taste of American Hip Hop culture as he lived it in New York.
Among other accomplishments, David has also jointly compiled a CD which was successfully released under the “Columbia Records” trademark of Sony Music Entertainment Inc. Having since relocated back to New York, along with spinning on the “ones and twos” David is actively pursuing a career in sound design and music production. His creativity and dedication has leaded him toward a style of music production the likes of which has never been heard before. His selection of tracks, along with a creative composition, brings forth a unique style of music which drives dance floors into a frenzy time and time again with his techno and tech-house infused beats.

DAVICHO - From the banging drums of African inspired beats from the north coast natives of Honduras, the Garifunas, to the sultry voices of motown to 70’s Beatle’s Pop and Disco to 80’s New Wave, 90’s Grunge, Hip-hop and Industrial House to modern Electronic/Dance/Indie music - Davicho loves it all. If it’s good, catchy or just a damn great tune - it will be played - no discrimination. But even with such an wide array of music taste, early in his music development, Davicho found an immediate connection to bands like Depeche Mode, The Smiths, Moenia, Soda Stereo, and The Postal Service to name a few.
Currently residing in NYC, Davicho finds himself spinning minimal house beats to electro, nudisco/indie tracks a la Jamie xx. Having the ability to spin in several NYC locations (SoHo, Hell’s Kitchen, East Village and Brooklyn) and a current member of Astoria DJ Group (A.D.G) - calls for a more versatile style of spinning which Davicho easily adapts to while influencing the crowds. In the end, for Davicho, it’s about having a great time - all through music.
A web developer by day and a multitasker since birth davicho is currently delving into music production. His ability to grasp programming concepts quickly coupled with the concept of having to be flexible in web development environments has given him the ability to master several hardware and software tools from straight up vinyl to Serato Scratchlive to Traktor to controllers. Stay tuned for original work, in the meantime enjoy his mixes and mashups. Check out some of his sounds at:
DJ SURV - Originally hailing from Malta but a long time resident of New York City, DJ Surv had 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 is a member Astoria DJ Group (A.D.G.) based here in NYC and has also recently joined DEX Records based in New York as well. DJ Surv has made appearances in various venues throughout NYC 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. His musical style is a blend of funky minimal and tech-house along with elements of Detroit Techno. Check out some of his sounds at:
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 at:
