Ramon Tapia

The first of our highlights arrives on February 3rd with the Area Event presenting a Thursday evening in the company of a trio of future DJ stars: Ramon Tapia, Steve Cox and Jose Velez. Serious record collectors may recognize Ramon Tapia’s name from acclaimed singles like ‘Organized’ and ‘This Groove’ on Strictly Rhythm, and ‘Colorzz’ that featured on Chus & Ceballos’ most recent ‘Back On Tracks’ compilation. While on the remix tip the Dutch/Chilean producer’s recently delivered a killer restyling on Sir James’ ‘Special’, along with cool updates for Ultra Nate, Mood II Swing and Armand Van Helden… Born and raised in the Bronx, Steve Cox has been in high demand in the New York and New Jersey area the last few years. Always looking for a way to keep the crowd pumped, he’s know for his unique party vibe and ability to charismatically control a crowd with both personality and DJ skills blending the very best of house music with a pinch of humor and a lot of passion… Jose Velez is another local DJ from New York who’s spent the last decade building a steady following both home and abroad. In the studio his productions have been embraced by the likes of Ian Carey, Sander Kleinenberg and Chus & Ceballos, ­making him a natural choice to add another contemporary and varied layer to the night’s soundtrack.
