Ever since Eddie Elias played his first professional gig in 2000, the New Jersey-based, Dominican-born DJ has been wowing audiences in New York City and around the country with his unique sound and masterful mixing. Deep, progressive grooves are the foundation upon which Eddie builds his sets; where he goes from there depends on the crowd and his remarkably keen instincts. Whether he's dramatically layering an improbable number of tracks during a peak hour performance before a crowd of thousands or working a single favorite record with focused precision at a more intimate after-hours, a night on his dance floor is one that won't soon be forgotten.
Eddie was first influenced during his early clubbing experiences in the 90s listening to the legendary DJ Junior Vasquez spin at Tunnel and Arena. Over the course of his professional career, he has cultivated a distinct sound and an innovative and ever-evolving mixing style. Pulling from across the house music spectrum, with a vast technical and emotional range, Eddie's sets inspire extraordinary and often unexpected dance floor journeys.
He has also traveled the country from coast to coast playing a wide array of venues, like Chicago's Hydrate, Cathedral in Philly and Tampa's Krome. Always looking to expand his international exposure, Eddie's adventures abroad include playing at one of Rosana Amaral's parties in Rio, Brazil, held at the Museu de Arte Moderna. Other exciting overseas dates are currently in the works. Eddie's also spending as much time in the studio as a new father and husband can spare, honing his production skills. He is looking forward to sharing his original productions with audiences in the near future.
