At 13, Peter O'Grady took up DJing and eventually moved into production in his 20s, using Fruity Loops to create 8-bar grime loops before developing his sound combining house, disco and dubstep. His debut single "Hyph Mngo" was called the most forward-thinking dubstep track of 2009 and received airplay and floorplay worldwide. In 2010, O'Grady released "The Shrew Would Have Cushioned The Blow" on Aus Music, an eclectic record label founded by Will Saul and Fink."Hyph Mngo" was voted #23 in the Resident Advisor top 100 tracks of the 2000s and #1 in Fact Magazine's top tracks of 2009. In 2012, O'Grady began residencies at his own London based club night 'Just For You' and at Manchester's 'meandyou' party. He also launched a record label called Hinge Finger which is co-run by artist Will Bankhead.
What matters most, above all else, is what comes through the speakers,” says Detroit’s Ryan Elliott. “It must be the right track at the right time, delivered in the right way.” Ryan Elliott’s early days included legendary residencies at Ann Arbor’s Goodnight Gracie’s and Detroit’s Shelter, which soon gave way to a rigorous international travel schedule. Influenced by his hometown staples (Axis, Purpose Maker, M Plant, UR) along with international labels like Perlon, Playhouse, and early Kompakt, Ryan inhabits his kick drums, becoming an extension of the music and vice versa. Skip to 2015 and Ryan Elliott is a firm fixture on the international DJing circuit with a much coveted Panorama Bar mix CD under his belt.
This born and bred New Yorker has gained a reputation through his sheer passion, clever track selections and precise mixing. Through word of mouth – and years before his first releases - he has been invited to DJ for crowds all over the world from Brazil and China to Panorama Bar and many places in between. His DJ sets are as exciting and diverse as his home town and have gained him compliments from many international DJ’s and producers, who recognize him as a legitimate up-and-coming talent. More recently Evan was featured in Fact Magazine's 100 DJ's who deserve more shine.
