The thunderous beats of two-time Grammy-nominated superstar DJ/Producer/Remixer Tony Moran have resonated throughout clubs and arenas around the world, and have dominated the Billboard dance charts for decades. Artists like Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Madonna, Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Rihanna, Mary J Blige, Janet Jackson and Jennifer Lopez have depended on this top-ranked producer to remix their hits to tear up the dance floor. In addition, Moran has written, remixed and produced albums and songs for stars as respected as Michael Jackson, Gloria Estefan, Cher, Ne-Yo, Luther Vandross, Patti LaBelle, Celine Dion, Jennifer Holiday, and Donna Summer; plus club queens Deborah Cox, Kristine W, Suzanne Palmer and Inaya Day have all churned out dance smash after dance smash with Moran at the helm.
Moran, however, is more than a man that works the DJ booth and studio. An accomplished singer and songwriter, Moran has released a number of his own singles and CDs throughout his three-decade long (and counting) career, achieving solo success with major club hits like "Put Your Hands Up," "Cafe Con Alegria" and "The Promise."
Moran got his start in the early 80's as part of groundbreaking duo "The Latin Rascals," who are credited for helping to usher in the freestyle era of music. Barely out of his teens, he wrote and produced the million-plus selling dance topper and club smash "Show Me" by the Cover Girls, which opened the floodgates to producing and remixing the biggest stars of the time like Run DMC, The Beach Boys, Diana Ross and LL Cool J. Since those early days, he has amassed an astonishing discography with more than 800 titles, dozens of Top 40 pop hits and countless No. 1 dance singles to his credit. Driven as ever, this legendary producer is also considered one of today's biggest house/electronic music DJs, whose sound constantly develops and evolves to remain the cutting edge of contemporary dance music.
DJ BIG KID
Asian DJ star Big Kid has cemented his international DJ status with massive gigs not just throughout the Asian continent in cities like Taipei, Beijing, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Shanghai and his native Singapore but also worldwide playing to eager audiences in cities like San Francisco, Honolulu, Sydney, Lima and Los Angeles. He has achieved the rare accomplishment of being one of a small handful of Asian DJs who have successfully crossed over into the American dance arena.
Big Kid is known for his "Big Room Big Party" sound, banging out skillful sets that blend hard-hitting and sexy tribal and progressive house. He has been called "one of the hottest names on the global circuit" by CircuitCadence.com. Singapore's I-S Magazine crowned him "one of the biggest names in the local party circuit," and San Francisco's Gloss Magazine described Big Kid as an "extraordinary deejay producer [that] has painted Asia deep red with his unique house music and deejay styling." Industry heavyweight DJ Paulo has endorsed this talented star saying, "Big Kid is a DJ you WANT to hear", and in fact Big Kid has become known as "Paulo's percussionary missionary to the Far East". LA's famed DJ Alexander states, "Big Kid needs no introduction as his work is great and he's built a name for himself!"
Big Kid is also a prolific remixer/producer, churning out electrifying club-only remixes of hit tracks from the likes of Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, David Guetta, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.
Rodolfo Bravat is one of the most prominent talents in the Brazilian dance scene. This Sao Paulo native is renown for his carefully crafted sets that mix styles of tribal, electro and progressive house, creating an infectious energy at the massive events he has played worldwide. In Brazil alone, he is the much-in-demand resident DJ of 6 well-known clubs/events: Flexx Club (SP) one of the biggest clubs in the country, along with E*JOY, the world famous Hell & Heaven party, Jungle Party, Liquid Love and Quarta Chic. Bravat also performs together with fellow Brazilian DJ star Felipe Lira as the popular duo House Box.
Bravat has played alongside such major stars as Tony Moran, Cajjmere Wray, Chus+Ceballos, Yinon Yahal, Austin Leeds, Ana Paula, Edson Pride, DJ Escape, Oscar Velasquez, Tracy Young, Ralphi Rosario, Steven Rendant, Joe Gauthreaux, Manuel De Diego and many others. Some notable events and clubs he has performed at include Matinee Festival (Las Vegas), Score (Miami), G Music Fest (Mexico City), White Party (Sao Paulo), Splash (NYC), Fly (Toronto), Latin Hot Party (Cancun), Queen (Paris), and Epic Saturdays at House of Blues (Boston).
