******************************************************
DJ BRUNO BIO

He’s been djing in Boston since 1987. Became known in the college scene in the late 80’s to early 90’s for mixing Hip Hop, Reggae, RnB & House Music. Then in 1991 he began a residency at the BOSTON LOFT with Armand Van Helden. Then in February of 1992 he started the Legendary Utopia Parties. Utopia still remains as one of Boston’s hottest DEEP HOUSE MUSIC events. In 2006 Boston Magazine awarded him DJ OF THE YEAR. In 2007 Weekly Dig awarded Utopia Sundays the BEST HOUSE NIGHT IN BOSTON. On December 22, 2012 he was forced to retire due to health issues with diabetes. That same evening politician Tito Jackson gave him an award that said December 22, 2012 was DJ BRUNO DAY. After an operation which caused him to lose some of his vision he enrolled in the Carroll Center for the Blind. At the center he learned to cope with his blindness and to continue loving life. Still determined to do what he loves he came out of retirement on July 2013. That same month he released his first mix cd in 14 months titled “BLIND FURY”. Today he is still doing what he loves and will continue to do so until the day he dies. “LIFE AIN’T WORTH LIVING IF YOU CAN’T DO WHAT YOU LOVE DOING!”.

**************************************************************
DJ OSHEEN BIO

Osheen, New England’s own veteran DJ and producer / remixer is no stranger to the club culture and electronica house music scene. He began his career in the early 1980’s dosing the dance floors of local clubs and rave event’s in the northeast. When the rave phenomena hit in the early 1990’s he took his skills and signature sound of house music out to the masses and quickly became known as one of the premier underground house DJ’S throughout the U.S.. The demand kept growing for his talent as a DJ, leading way to the next logical and creative step, the creation of his own music and record label.Osheen currently has numerous remix and original releases on major and independent record labels.

******************************************************
THE SHADOW KINGS BIO

Since 1996, the Shadow Kings (Kelvin Sylvester and Nick Balodimas) one of the original house music DJ/Producer teams from Boston MA, have moved some of the best dance floors from coast to coast. With styles varying from deep/uplifting soulful house music to classic disco and both coming from immigrant families heavily influenced by music and their cultures. It was natural that they would both eventually meet at a dj record shop in the early 90’s through a mutual friend.
In 1999, they moved into the production aspect of the industry, releasing their first recording, ‘Disco-Nnected’ on Gossip Records (which ended up on a compilation from Italy called ‘Angles Of Love’ mixed By Ted Patterson). With growing success, they released re mixes and original productions for some of the most distinguished house music labels in the industry.

They have been reviewed on some of the most prominent dance music magazines in the UK such as Dj, MUZIK and JOCKEY SLUT Magazine for releases on Chez Music, ‘Catch the Sun’ (2001) and ‘Get Stronger’ (2002). ‘Catch the Sun’ was then released on a mix compilation by Neil Aline of Chez Music called ‘On The Rocks Vol.1’. (which became a huge underground hit) Soon after ‘Get Stronger’ came out, it was licensed on the Ministry of Sound CD ‘Hard Times’. In 2005, the Shadow Kings released the long anticipated ‘Soul Music’ (listed as one of the top 100 downloads on Traxsource for 2005) featuring David Walker with lyrics written by Duane Harden (‘U Don’t Know Me’) on Undo Music, which within that year was licensed on a Seamless Recordings compilation.
In 2004, the Shadow Kings added a talented keyboardist and new member to the team Joe Chinni. Joe is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music. His keen, soulful accompaniments have brought the latest Shadow kings’ productions to a noticeably higher level. Which resulted in the underground banger released on Utopia Recordings called ‘Soul-4-Reel’.
2006 became the year of collaborations for the Shadow Kings. One of those collaborations occurred with a rising artist named Lee Wilson. Lee was named the best-unsigned artist of 2005 by Source magazine. He made guest appearances on BET’s 106th and Park and the Fox network. At the time, Kelvin completed co-writing a song with his long time friend Duane Harden called ‘So Beautiful’. It was the perfect song for Lee Wilson’s debut with the Shadow Kings The song was signed to Soul Funk Digital Records (UK) and was released in early 2007. In addition, the Shadow Kings were given an opportunity to remix Lee Wilson’s single, ‘Life’, which was released in 2008 on Home Recordings as well as Dee Lavenders “Song 4 Her” on Boston’s very own Utopia Recordings. In 2009 they released another deep track on Utopia Recordings again called “New Steps”
They also collaborated with the Groove Doctors on a project for the legendary Arnold Jarvis called ‘Never Cared’. It became a pivotal release for the Shadow Kings on Soul Funk Digital Records.

As well as hosting one of the most successful Deep house radio shows on handzonradio from 2007 to 2012, they had decided to take a step back. Fast forward to 2014 and The Shadow Kings are back with a new release on Utopia Recordings called “The Way I feel” now available on trxsource.com as well as getting ready to take on the decks!!! The tag team duo is back!

*******************************************************
T.C.C. BIO
TO BE IN LOVE Is Everything: Soul, Music, Dance, Family, Union.
DJs Dende & Mystina, The Couples’ Couple, are the embodied treasured gem of these five vivid realities. Together, they share their bonded words: House Music is a Giver of Life and a part of who they are.

Dende & Mystina debuted as sole DJs, playing parties in Lowell, Boston and Cambridge. Fated, they played as a Force of One duo at H.O.M.E., a DJ Bruno and Boston Househeads Production. This guest set changed everything. DJ Dende & DJ Mystina decided to become DJs Dende & Mystina, a tag-team duo who will bring to the table their support for each other, their shared love for House Music and their goals to play the hottest music while aiming to throw the party into a dance frenzy, as they do!

“Our promise is to always play from our hearts.” This is T.C.C.!
