Philly Fresh, Philly Swag
Tucci has been dedicated to music for as long as he can remember. From making countless alternative mixtapes at age 10 to hosting a late night college radio show from 2003-2005, he has always had an ear for interesting, memorable music. One night in Manhattan years ago, Tucci accidentally eavesdropped on a serious DJ in a nearby club and interest immediately sparked in the direction of house and techno. Listening became producing which became DJing and now Tucci plays to packed clubs practically every weekend. Recently, Tucci has appeared alongside outrageous talent including: techno luminaries Stacey Pullen and John Acquaviva, Chicago tech house mainstays Orchard Lounge, Dr. Fameus (Allen Aucoin of the Disco Biscuits), Dubstep soldier Joe Nice (Dubwar NYC), NYC Residents Sleepy and Boo (Basic NYC) and the Philadelphia electronic rock of Brothers Past and MJ Project. Tucci enjoys production and remixing but puts his focus on finding and exposing the most powerful, tasteful and spirited dance music in the world by way of mixing tracks using Ableton Live.
Unless youve been laying in a miserable hole in the ground with your stupid head lodged awkwardly in a large pot of honey for the past 77-and-a-half years, you have undoubtedly had your eyes, ears and long, beautiful legs opened by the mellifluous melodies and bitch-strangling beats of the dastardly DJ known this side of the Carpathian Mountains as Marmon. Raised by wolves in the jungles of India, the savage sampler took to the turn tables like a duck to plum sauce. Known primarily for his sultry, slutty funk, deeply perverse danciness and the impressively high body count at his live shows, the depraved lunatic was once even heard to describe his music, entirely out of context, as delicious, warm apple pie gingerly garnished with hot sauce. I swear to Christ if you dont piss yourself when you see him, youll wet the bed later that night.
KUATO began his DJ career in 2006, while living in Burlington, VT. He was an active participant in the local music scene and was one of the few that truly pushed all ages electronic music shows. He co-produced, alongside DJ Haitian, a series of events titled "Ninjadrome" that saw local talent, combined with national acts, consistently sell-out venues, proving that dance music culture still exists in Vermont. In 2007, he relocated to South East London. After meeting a few good promoters, he had DJ gigs lined up regularly throughout South London and the downtown areas at choice venues such as 93 Feet East, Dogstar, Sketch, and The International Center of Arts (ICA). The time spent in London added a unique global spectrum to his musical tastes. Today KUATO can be seen regularly rocking NYC dance floors with his hot, bass-heavy music. He has performed at NYC institutions Greenhouse, Mr. West, Pianos, and Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as been a part of NY Fashion Week and the Tribeca Film Festival. He has recently reunited with DJ Haitian to form Party Guy Records, which boasts an impressive roster of upcoming electro, dubstep, and funky producers.
