4th Annual K,THX! w David Hollands
Thursday, Nov 25, 2010 @ Talbott Street Nightclub21+ with ID | Non-smoking event | NO COVER
New York-based DJ David Hollands brings his celebrated club sound from NYC’s biggest nightclubs to venues around the world, including London, Munich, Buenos Aires, Moscow, and Bangkok. He’s delivered unforgettable nights at the world’s hottest clubs such as Pacha, Limelight, Twilo and Crobar alongside names like Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox and Laurent Garnier.
In the last few years, Hollands has established himself as an industry favorite with his exclusive Sunday night parties at Soho’s Café Novecento. His hot tech-house sound brought together the
likes of Moby and DJ Sasha along with the city’s top promoters and a sophisticated New York crowd. Time Out New York called Hollands “one of the city’s top DJ’s” and named the Novecento Sunday night parties a “don’t-miss-destination for the night.”
Besides his club gigs, Hollands served as the musical director and resident DJ for the De La Guarda DJ Connection, a high-flying acrobatic spectacle that fused avant-garde theater with
techno. This off-Broadway show brought in DJs like Fatboy Slim and Josh Wink, earning the show a “Best Event” nomination at the
Dancestar USA Awards.
Not content to be merely a DJ and event promoter, David Hollands has been working more and more in the studio doing original productions for both the dance floor and commercial projects.
He’s released four records under the “Minimal Wage” label, and he’s been tapped to do remixes and award-winning production work for Nintendo, ESPN and Boeing Airplanes. URB magazine took notice, naming him one of their “Next 100” talents. Most recently, DJ David Hollands has been featured in the Discovery Channel HD and the CMJ Music Marathon 2007
In junior high, Deanne would listen to the local college radio station that was playing the freshest music every Friday night. Unaware that it would ever play a part in her future, Deanne began developing her "DJ skills" making mix tapes of nothing more than a collection of the hottest songs recorded from the radio. "I can remember sitting in the dark, past my bedtime, with the music really low, so my mom wouldn't hear me. I would wait for hours for a certain song to come on, try and perfectly time recording the beginning and the ending of the song so that I got every beat. I would record the next song right behind the other with no gaps, commercials or DJ voices. I would just jam to those mixtapes, but always excited to make a new one. It seems pretty lame, but I had no idea that it would later be a part of my life."
In 1996 Deanne moved to Tampa and it was here that she got a taste of what club music was all about and what she had been missing by growing up in the Midwest. She immersed herself in the music, trying to find all the tracks she was hearing in the clubs. This continual search for the newest, freshest tracks ignited a fire and unveiled a passion.
It wasn't until she moved back to the Midwest, in 1999, that the pieces started falling into place. She began spinning at the only club in Bloomington, Indiana with a house music format. In the spring of 2003, Deanne moved to Indianapolis and made her Indy debut spinning at the official Indy Pride Festival T-Dance. Late in 2003, Deanne landed a prime Friday night weekly mix show slot on, Miami-based, Energy Internet Radio/EnergyRadio.fm. A few T-dances and special appearances later, she earned a monthly spot in the rotating line-up at Indy's hottest club, Talbott Street, which has hosted talents such as Paul Oakenfold, Gabriel and Dresden, Manny Lehman, Barry Harris, Mike Cruz, Twisted Dee, Tracy Young and many more.
With weekend attendance numbers near 1000 at the Indy club, Deanne is no stranger to holding a large dance floor captive to her style of mixing. With influences such as Chicago house legend, Ralphi Rosario, the masterful Junior Vasquez, and the perennial crowd-pleaser, Manny Lehman, Deanne's DJ style is defined by the spirit and energy of house music. Vocal, progressive, underground and tribal beats and rhythms are combined to take her listeners on a unique journey that is marked with sensuality, undeniable energy, and wonderful "dance floor drama". "When I really started going to the clubs and hearing how music was supposed to be played, the best DJ's took me on a musical journey -- a ride. That's what I want for my listeners, a night of music that they remember and come back for over and over again."
Chachi was born in Valencia, Venezuela and moved to the US during her teenage years. Her initial dive into the music world was as a latin DJ in Tampa, Florida, but later moved on to the midwest, where she fell in love with electronic dance music. Noticed by the local talent, she was asked to join OnTrack and the INHouse DJs, who embrace Electronic Dance Music around Indianapolis and the Midwest. Chachi currently holds a residency at Indy's Metro Nightclub for the Metro Rising parties. She's best known for spinning house music, in which you can really pick up on her latin roots and desire to feel the bass.
