At Genesis New York, expect to dance to the sound of New York.
The legendary DJ/producer/New Yorker Tedd Patterson and I will be on the decks, and we want everyone to just be with one another and dance. A custom light installation by the Ferosh multimedia team will be constructed to enhance the musical journey…
Genesis New York is a major part of the Pride festivities this year. Do you approach Pride events differently from other club events?
Of course… I still feel that it’s one of those special moments where we can truly be ourselves. Judgment, prejudice, and hate are not allowed.
Over the years, you’ve remixed big names, including Madonna, Britney Spears, and Cher. Do you have any other collaborations or remixes in the pipeline?
My labels, Ferosh Recordings and F Region Productions started releasing new music this year. Our latest release is a single that songwriter/producer Astrid Suryanto and I collaborated on called “Color of Your Eyes.” It’s a feel-good indie dance summer tune that is making its way through the radio and of course, I have my own big room interpretation which I will debut at Genesis alongside the other remixes I have recently done of Nikki Williams, Maya Simantov, Ginny Blackmore, Felix da Housecat, and Cher’s new single “Woman’s World.
Do you prefer to DJ or to produce?
I’m a music lover first… All styles, genres, and angles… I am involved in a wide range of music-based projects at the moment.
What gear do you use in the studio?
Logic and Ableton with a collection of soft-synths, vintage gears, and a team of very talented musicians…
I would love to have those turntables back but as time moves forward, three or more CDJ set up is preferable.
Favorite track this year?
Felix da Housecat: “I Just Want to be a Lesbian (Aphrohead Remix)”
