"Getting ready for this Saturday ~ day-into-night rooftop showcasing deep underground gems: house, tech/no, bass. FREE w/RSVP to http://tinyurl.com/openair6"Open.Air at The DL Rooftop
Founder and resident DJ of the Wobble and OpenAir parties in NYC, and a 2-year former resident of world-renowned Cielo club, Arana has steadily built a reputation as one of the city's most dynamic and versatile DJs by weaving together energetic, tightly-executed sets of underground dance music and moving his dance floors with bending basslines, intricate layers and an uncompromising focus on musicality beyond the simple boom-boom.
About aranaman /
Arana honed his musical ear composing on classical guitar and playing in rock bands starting at the age of 13. After moving to NYC to study law at NYU, he fell in love with electronic dance music, taught himself to DJ as he juggled life as a corporate lawyer, and then launched the first Wobble parties in 2004. He is currently focused on his monthly music events and the launch of his underground house/techno label, Wobble Music.
Using a 3-channel setup and an aggressive mixing style, Arana pushes his sets into live-remix terrain with filters, effects, hot cues and fader cuts. Those sets cover a broad range of house, techno, minimal, indie/electronica and bass music with exciting movements between bright/uplifting and dark/dirty extremes. An experienced special events music programmer and DJ, Arana also commands a broad knowledge of many genres of classic and contemporary dance music. Whatever label or description is applied to the music he plays, Arana has an uncanny ability to hear the harmonic, rhythmic and melodic elements which he knows will resonate with his audience to inspire authentic feeling on the dance floor. Arana has shared the stage with Kaiserdisco, Victor Calderone, Martinez, Reset Robot, Daniel Sanchez, Miguel Migs, Sabb, Grünbox, AFFKT, Gene Farris and Anthony Pappa, among others.
