With releases on high profile record labels such as Hardcore Beats, Broke, Bombtraxx, Electrofly and Kick It, New York City based Wavewhore has established himself as one of the USA’s leading electronic bass music producers. His skills behind the decks have also led to headlining appearances across the US and in Europe and his music and DJ performances have been featured on many of the world’s top broadcast media outlets including BBC Radio 1 London, WKTU 103.5 FM New York, KISS FM London, RTE Dublin, Sirius Satellite Radio and MTV.
Wavewhore has been called a “breakbeat master” by Liquid Todd (Sirius Satellite Radio) and “one of the USA’s finest breakbeat DJ/producers” by Jay Cunning (KISS FM London) while breakbeatonline.com described him as “NYC’s finest export since the Beastie Boys”. He began his career as a guitarist performing in clubs while he was still in high school and his first electronic release dates back to 1992. His music has also received high level support from many of the top names in the business including Aquasky, Jackal & Hyde, DJ Icey, The Freestylers, General Midi, Elite Force and many more.
Now that electro house is incorporating harder-edged sounds and dirty basslines, Wavewhore has also turned his attention to the genre and is currently working on several projects which follow a 4x4 beat structure. In addition, Wavewhore is also producing dubstep and drumstep which build on his early production work of drum'n'bass and contemporary dub. These additional musical ventures will continue to feature his signature high energy beats and basslines combined with the quality production and impact that has made his music popular around the world.

New York, NY
Art Blakey III was born in NYC into a family full of music, influenced as much by the gigs his Father and Grandfather would play at Jazz clubs and concerts as he was by the diverse musical culture that the greatest city in the world had to offer. After spending years training in piano, trumpet, and voice, his interest in DJing was piqued by the block parties in his Manhattan Valley neighborhood. It was not until he was struck by the lightning bolt that is Drum & Bass that he vowed to actually become a DJ, if only to be a messenger as his forefathers had been before him, spreading the music to all who would listen.
Thanks to Camouflage’s Christian Bruna and Tommy Etzi, Art was able to step forth and play out in the New York Drum n' Bass scene and has been able to DJ with the likes of Raw Q, DJ Paul C, Odi, Dara, Mousky, TankTop NYC and Micah Chockley as well as Total Science, Sub Focus, The Insiders, R.A.W. and Wavewhore. Art now goes forth, bringing Drum & Bass from the Creator, to the decks, to you.TED GANUNG

Music has been the only consistency within Ted Ganung’s constantly changing life. Ted was introduced to music composition at a very young age. When Ted was in the first grade his father bought him an electric guitar and began to teach him how to improvise over chord changes using pentatonic and diatonic scales.
Throughout high school Ted played guitar, bass, and keyboards in various reggae bands. At the same time Ted also studied classical guitar in preparation for university, under the guidance of Jeff Petterson, one of Hawaii’s most trend setting slack key guitar players.
At the University of Hawaii Ted was studying guitar when he realized his real passion was for music composition. At this point Ted decided to go to University overseas and study composition/electronic music in London, under the guidance of avant-garde composer, Alan Stones.
The influence of the time spent in Europe changed the way Ted created and expressed himself through music. Shortly after finishing his studies in London he would return to Honolulu only for a short time to prepare himself to fully immerse himself in the music industry by moving to New York City.
Currently based in New York City, Ted can be found spinning his original music all over the city as well as producing various styles of Electronic Music for Record Labels across Europe.DIGGY & G RON
Underground Movement - Evolutionized Future Rhythms - Altruist Recordings - www.electronicrhythm.com
George Ron (aka G-Ron), a collector of records since the age of 8, this native New Yorker from Ecuadorian descent, has experienced the dance party scene at many distinct levels. At 9, he started going to underground Brooklyn rap jams with friends. With his attention directed towards the "controller of the music," he would start to appreciate how the DJ selected the right songs at the appropriate time throughout the night. Eventually his interest grew learning how to build a crowd into a frenzy then bringing everyone down gently and blissfully. Presented with the house and freestyle movement at 12, G-Ron started learning the art of mixing. Thirteen would be the age when he would start to give out mixed tapes, play at local parties and hear a response to his developing skills. He would also listen to mixed sets from Club Marz, parties like Egotrip with DJ Roger S. (Sanchez) and Frank Sinister and Friday/Saturday late night hot mixes on the old 103.5 FM. At 14 he traveled to Asuncion, Paraguay through an exchange student program and embraced some of his latin flavored roots. After returning to NYC @ 16, while hanging with his mentor, DJ T.L.R. and friends, G-Ron made his way into Danceteria’s Melting Pot and discovered an amazing break-through, electronic dance music. During this era, he would become a regular at Limelight’s Wednesday Disco 2000 with DJ Keoki and Lord Michael’s Future Shock with DJ Repete on Fridays. He would also visit clubs and parties like the Shelter’s Nasa, Wild Pitch, Sound Factory, Palladium, Sound Factory Bar, Tunnel, Redzone, Octagon, Roxy, The Living World with DJ Junior Vasquez. He would host events of his own with past teammates Sleepwalker Inc. including DJ Soulstar and Enoshite. "Back then, promoters like Alan Sanctuary would throw parties in bars where today legends like Jeff Mills would play slammin’ sets, or Moby playing ’1000' at Nasa, made the crowd flip-out!" After graduating high school, G-Ron enlisted in the Marines and traveled abroad where he was exposed to the different electronic music scenes around the globe. These years he came in contact with the beauty of Breakbeat down the east coast, the funky sound of Disco-Tech in Italy, the psychedelics in Goa from Israel, the grooves in French House, the big-room intensity of Trance in Spain, and the cosmic progressive funk from the west coast. G-Ron also became influenced by the flow in Acid Jazz, the strong vibrations of Jungle/Drum & Bass, the tranquility in Ambient, the hypnotic journeys in Acid House, the mellow voyages in Trip-Hop, the hard-hitting extremes in Hardcore Techno, and the rhythmic harmony in Afro-beat. These multicultural diverse soundscapes gave him the eclectic tastes he demonstrates in his performances to date. After his travel commitments, he completed a sound and recording engineering program and got hired by a major recording studio. At Soundtrack NY Group, he advanced his engineering and production techniques while helping and assisting on sessions with artists such as Busta Rhymes, Run-DMC, Christina Aguilera, Snoop Dogg, Petey-Pablo, Mandy Moore, Missy Elliot, Nelly Furtado, Junior Vasquez, Mobb Deep, Staind, Ludacris, Linkin Park, Filp-Mode Squad, Funk Master Flex, Talib Kweli, Just Blaze, Slipknot, Jay-Z, DMX, Angie Stone, Limp Bizkit, Wyclef Jean, Fat Joe, Jellybean Benitez, Ghost Face Killa, Rah Digga, Full Force, Roberta Flack and many others. Then one day, he decides to give up his position at Soundtrack Studios and commence on his own creations. Currently exhibiting his formula for exceptional underground dance poesy and working on his own material, G-Ron strives to enlighten newcomers and old-schoolers with the enchantment of soul driving beats.
