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:
LMR - LMR (pronounced "Elmer") is a Dutch DJ and producer who started making hip-hop beats on his Commodore computer back in 1989. Inspired by the influential music scene of Amsterdam and the rest of Europe, LMR picked up his first set of turntables at the point when technology was transitioning from Vinyl to CD. Fast forward 10 years to LMR's relocation to NYC as a missionary who aims to bring Europe's House Music Explosion back to America. While his earliest influences included Prodigy and his hometown hero, Eric E, today you'll find him spinning anything from Techno and Tech-House to Minimal and House-all depending on the flavor of the week.

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. 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.

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:
