Brian Cid bio
Brian Cid is a Brooklyn-based DJ & producer with a level of musical talent that has taken the underground electronic music scene by storm. His original productions have found homes on a number of the most credible and tastemaking record labels, with a style that touches deep house, techno, progressive house and more, with no boundaries whatsoever. This catalog of innovative, genre-defying tracks has given Brian the opportunity to grace the decks at some of the best clubs, parties, & events across the globe, and has led to a DJ Mag nomination for 2017 Best Breakthrough DJ in their Best of North America awards.
After starting to play the drums as a kid growing up, Brian began to create his own productions as early as 14 years old. Shortly after, he began his first foray into the music industry with a successful decade-long career in the Hip Hop and Pop scene as an audio engineer, where he worked with the world’s biggest stars. After fine-tuning his production techniques and developing his own unique style & sound, the Brooklyn ambassador decided to tap into his love of club culture and enter the world of house music - a genre that vibrates with him in such a way that he can freely express himself. Brian’s original productions have been released on labels such as Guy J’s Lost & Found, Hot Since 82’s Knee Deep In Sound, Manjumasi, Get Physical, microCastle, Cityfox & more.

In a short period of time, he became a regular name on the bills of NYC’s biggest mainstays such as Output, Verboten, Cielo, Pacha, Marquee and Sankeys. These clubs also became his testing ground where he could bring his tracks to life outside of the studio, and see firsthand the crowd’s reactions that he had been hearing about from the passionate supporters of his music. More recent gigs include the Cityfox Experience, Mixmag Lab and Members Only in his home base of NY and tours all across the U.S. from Boston to Burning Man.

Years of collaborative efforts between a team of like-minded people have resulted in the development of these intimate live art showcases & sonic experiences. With Endangered coming to life, a calendar full of releases, and an ongoing global tour, the best is yet to come for Brian...
