Gregor Tresher and Zenbi to Play Sullivan Room in NYC, 2/16
Gregor Tresher began his career as a DJ in Frankfurt in the early '90s; today, he can be found plying that trade at venues around the world, from Berlin to Tokyo, Sydney to Los Angeles. Following two critically-acclaimed albums credited to his Sniper Mode alias, Tresher broke through as a producer under his own name via his 2005 releases Still and Neon, his remix of Sven Väth's "Komm," and his contribution to Cocoon's Compilation F, "Full Range Madness." In addition to releasing tracks on countless other esteemed labels, including Intacto, Great Stuff, Rebel One, Ovum, and Moon Harbour, Tresher launched his own eclectic imprint, Break New Soil, in 2009. Lights From The Inside is the third Gregor Tresher studio album, following his debut A Thousand Nights (2007) and The Life Wire (2009).
ZENBI: Raised in Philadelphia and based in Washington DC, ZENBI is quickly becoming one of the hottest names in America's burgeoning house music scene. With newly minted residencies at two of the hottest dance clubs in the US, and a handful of recent top ten tracks to back it up, ZENBI is establishing himself as one of the most in-demand DJ/Producers in the industry.
ZENBI started spinning vinyl in the mid 90's in Philadelphia - being heavily influenced by the music culture pioneered by local Legends Josh Wink and King Britt. ZENBI's signature 'Good & Beautiful' sound [Zenbi translates as Good and Beautiful in Japanese] has evolved into an infectious blend of sexy house, tech house, latin, and tribal grooves.
On the road, ZENBI has packed crowds from Boston to Budapest, Milan to Miami, and performed at major dance music festivals including BPM, Miami Music Week, Winter Music Conference, Groove Cruise, SodaPop Milano, and ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event). At home, Zenbi holds monthly residencies at two of the premier house clubs in the US: Lima in Washington DC and Rumor in Philadelphia - where he shares a rotation with the likes of Chus & Ceballos, Morgan Page, Saeed Younan, and Oscar G. In addition, ZENBI is a resident of electronic music event production company AOE, where he has performed at large scale events with acts including Aviici, Alesso, Bingo Players, etc.
The past year has brought a whirlwind of success for ZENBI's studio works, which have caught the ears of a Who's Who list of labels including Skint, Hotfingers, Great Stuff, Twisted, Vendetta, Disc Doctor, Low Kik, SK Supreme, among others. A handful of ZENBI releases have graced the Beatport Top Ten - including Stefano Noferini's remix of Double Trouble, which claimed the number one position on the Tech House charts for over a month.
ZENBI'S releases have received massive support from an ever-increasing list of talented producers including Moby, Mark Knight, Marco Carola, Stefano Noferini, Roger Sanchez, Umek, Danny Tenaglia, Wally Lopez, David Herrero, Erick Morillo, Dubfire, Paco Osuna, David Penn, Satoshi Tomiie, and Uner (to name a few!).
Open for over a decade, New York City's Sullivan Room is a Manhattan club that prides itself on maintaining an "underground" house and techno sensibility, playing host to both upcoming DJs and international touring stars. Featuring a sound system from Core Audio, the club seeks to establish a relaxed, easygoing atmosphere for its clubbers, where parties rarely get going before 1 AM.
