FUNKY FAM //
Flavio Acaron (MIA)
Ever since a tender age Puerto Rico’s very own Flavio Acaron has been mesmerized by sound and movement. Guitar Player/Keyboardist turned into a House enthusiast, Flavio has perfected his skill for 14 years behind the decks and also achieved a Recording Engineering Degree from Full Sail Real World Education. During his early producing career Flavio signed releases on Techno/House Heavy hitters Lutzenkirchen’s Platform B, Pierre Deutschmann’s K:lender and Great Stuff Recordings. Later on he went back to his roots inspired by Disco, New Wave, Electro and Deep House to find a more mellow, dark and funky approach to his music. Currently he has releases on Soulfooled Records, Neim, Electronique UK and Sleazy Deep. The future looks very bright for this young lad since in 2012 he has been constantly injecting the Deep House/Tech and Nu Disco scene with fresh beats, new sounds and obviously no signs of slowing down. Definitely an artist to be on the look out for in the years to come.
Sergio Santos (Get Physical, Endless Flight)
Born in the USA, raised in Portugal, Sergio Santos has spent half his life between the cities of Oporto, Boston, Los Angeles & now, his current base, New York City. Sergio Santos is a name in electronic music that has become synonymous with deep techno, dark disco, unique sounds and other world selections. Taking influence from both the United States and Portugal’s dance music scenes, Sergio has a sound unique to his life experiences and surrounding environments.
Jeremy Ismael (Faceless, Get Physical)
Jeremy’s Afro, mischievous smile and beautiful energy while playing are something that no one ever forgets. He can transport you to places that only exist in an imaginary world and can change your worst day into the best. He never stops dancing and won’t let you stop either.
Diego Knows (Cut-Line)
Founder of Cut-Line event series & FUNKY PEOPLE, Diego Knows has a love for people and a love for music that he’s fused into a lifestyle. His nightlife sound reflects all the various places and people he has encountered while learning on his travels.
