10:00PM DJ Center
At the turntables, DJ Center soul-travels, navigating audiences with a crate of musical goods from around the globe, while echoing a New York state of mind. The Romanian-Born, New York-bred, tastemaker's environment gave inspiration for an insatiable palate of Hip Hop & Jazz, Hard-Bop & Boom-Bap with a global outlook and immigrant roots. \"I came out of New York City DJ culture, cutting my teeth on '90s Hip Hop,\" Says Center, \"but my mentor was a Jazz musician.\"
A Center set is synonymous with the finest of selections whether he is doing music supervision for Gucci, recording radio sessions for Giant Step, or keeping NYC parties on their feet until the wee hours. Always aiming to break new music and celebrate forgotten gems, Center's sound has maintained his signature styling of soulful, feel-good music for audiences worldwide. Live, Center has brought together artists like Talib Kweli, Rob Swift, ?uestlove, Pete Rock, Grandmaster Flash, J.Rawls and Eric Roberson to take crowds higher.
