CRY BABY (Euphoria Records, Nervous Records)

Born in Miami with a Cuban background, DJ Cry Baby has been strongly attracted to dance music since her earliest teen years, crashing raves since age 12 and immersing herself in the legendary South Florida dance culture of the 90s. Her growing hunger to share and perform led her to learn to DJ in her 20s, but soon found the lack of opportunities for women in her hometown stifling, so in 2010 she relocated to Brooklyn.

As soon as she landed in New York, Cry Baby wasted no time making a splash, playing a dizzying array of clubs, underground warehouses and private parties all over the city. Her own party series, House On Mute, quickly earned residencies at top clubs Submercer, Output and Le Bain, while also maintaining a strong underground presence at countless warehouse and loft spaces in Brooklyn.

Her dancefloor selection style straddles the house-techno divide, distilling and blending them in novel and potent concoctions, with a freshness, fluidity and thrust all her own. It was in 2011 that she began quietly experimenting with her own productions, slowly but intently developing a unique tech-house alchemy with influences in minimal and deep dance flavors in equal measure. Her first track, an enchanting and heady remix of Caiwo, was released on Euphoria Records in 2015, and was followed up by a split collaboration with Derek Marin on the legendary New York imprint Nervous Records.

With her impressive releases came the demand to bring her signature sound to international destinations, and in 2015 she completed her first European tour, dazzling audiences in Berlin, Stockholm and Prague, and she returned for a lengthier second tour in 2016, which brought her to Ibiza, Barcelona, Vienna, Luxembourg and back to Berlin for multiple performances to much acclaim. Back stateside, she has continued playing larger venues, with appearances at Mysteryland USA, Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, and several Mixmag Lab showcases, while maintaining her deep connection to the emerging underground techno scene in Brooklyn.

With more tours around the world and further original releases and remixes already in the works, the near future is looking increasingly bright for this rising star.

REMOVE HYPHEN (Plus Plus, Frisson)

Sassy selections, with throbbing, lush bass and dazzling chords, Remove Hyphen crafts sets that are thoughtful and complex–creating a cathartic dance floor rich with sub-aquatic beats.

Remove Hyphen bought her first plane ticket to India. There she studied Tabla, traditional Indian drums, at a school in the southern jungles of Kerela. This initial adventure began a life long pursuit of creative self-determination that would lead to musical experiments in China with the Pipa, an ancient lute, to Spain where she sought a guitar making family of gypsies to craft a Flamenco guitar, and to Jamaica where her knowledge of stringed instruments led to jamming out Reggae skanks with Rastas on the beaches of Negril.

Remove Hyphen’s understanding of sound has influenced her productions and track selections to reflect broad musical experiences. Dubby techno atmospheres alongside gorgeous chords combine to create the raw and the beautiful, satisfying the mind and the body. Her taste has led to a residency with Devotion and invitations to share music at a wide variety of events appealing to different crowds. This open spirit is reflected in her productions, which span genres: deep acid, industrial, electronica grooves to cocoon room techno; Remove Hyphen seeks to dismiss the things that separate people, using dance music as a tool for freedom.
