Fresh Out the Bedroom...
New on the social networking scene but hardly a stranger to dance music, Distraktor has been fader-fiddling for the better part of the last 20 years. Heavily influenced by the sounds and jocks of early/mid-90s dance stations KZ-93 FM in Peoria, Illinois and the legendary B96 FM (Bad Boy Bill, Mixin Marc, Julian Perez, Tim Schommer) in Chicago as well as the local skating rink (that's no lie) his style defies confinement and aims to make music FUN.
His work combines elements that span the progressive and funky house genres along with electro, dubstep, funk, tribal, and nuances of great pop music to create fresh sounds that you're hearing again for the first time.
Looking forward is looking back. Distraktor's history includes the legendary El Torito Thursday House Parties and numerous appearances throughout the Bay Area to get people on their feet and shaking their asses. His formula includes weaving wacky mashups, devastating drops, and lots of "ohhhh yeahhhh, I know this song!!!" as partygoers revel in recognition of old tracks spun a new way.
Now it's time to spread the formula far and wide -- and Distraktor wants you to be a part of his militia. Your speakers have been warned!
