ALLIES FOR EVERYONE is singer/songwriter/producer and DJ Brian Suarez. His dreamy melodic sound melds introspective synth-pop with percolating 90s electro house creating an infectious soundtrack with that rare ability to command a dance floor while simultaneously pulling at your heart strings. While drawing comparisons to artists like Pet Shop Boys, Jamie Jones, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Bag Raiders, Suarez has nurtured his own unique sound that's been hailed as “sweet 80's synth pop and new school electro jack that should - and probably will - melt the coldest of hearts" (Time Out New York) and the "perfect marriage of electropop and deep, sexy house” (Steve Madden).
Allies' KID Recordings debut, the 4-track 'Scavenger' EP, garnered rave reviews and now Suarez returns with - SCAVENGER (THE REMIX EP) – a potent collection of remixes of the infectious title track featuring mixes from dirty electro-house and indie dance titan TOMMIE SUNSHINE & DOWNLOW’D, nu disco maverick SON OF SOUND and emerging electronic pop/indie dance outfit, THE NIGHT OWL.
TOMMIE SUNSHINE needs no introduction. Influenced by equal parts New Wave, Rock & Roll, and House music, American rave legend and Brooklyn, NY resident Tommie Sunshine is raising the bar as an electronic music artist, producer, songwriter, taste-making DJ, and remixer who’s worked with everyone from Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, Scissor Sisters, The Gossip, Fallout Boy, The Killers, Junkie XL, Panic! At The Disco and Shiny Toy Guns. DOWNLOW'D emerged from the roots of the rave jungle; a multi-genre electronic music producer, DJ, and label founder (Macro Records). Since his inception, Downlow’d has been honing a style that has been described as intense and extremely theatrical. His high energy DJ sets are known to incite dance floor frenzies… a raucous blend of hard electro, glitchy dubstep, twisted moombahton, and nu-rave interwoven with banging top 40 remixes. Together, the pair previously did a remix for DJ Pierre on Steve Aoki's Dim Mak Records.
THE NIGHT OWL is the indie-dance/electronic pop project from songwriter, producer/remixer and DJ, MATT JOHNSON, of Boston-based nu-disco duo NIGHTRIDERS. Johnson, who also works under the monikers Heartache and Emjae, has released a slew of tunes on his own OMG! Recordings imprint, remixed artists like Yoko Ono, Dirty Vegas, Don Diablo, The Pussy Cat Dolls and Sander Kleinenberg, and has held a residency at Boston’s infamous club Rise.
SON OF SOUND is the alias of Brooklyn-based songwriter/producer/DJ, HENRY MALDONADO. A contributor to the New York House scene throughout the 90s with his House 2 House, Urban Rhythm and Rhythm Section projects on Strictly Rhythm, King Street and MAW, Maldonado has become one of the rising stars of the nu-disco/indie-dance scene with his group - NATIVE UNDERGROUND whose tracks have appeared on Tirk, Under the Shade and Wurst Music –and his own Speak Recordings imprint - whose catalog includes releases from Nu-disco royalty In Flagranti, Nick Chacona, Drrtyhaze and his own Son of Sound releases.
