– One of the friendliest faces in the NYC area, Benji Candelario has sustained his presence as one of the foremost DJ/Producers ever to grace the scene.
Spanning all genres of club music, his signature sound captures the essence of the culturally vibrant New York club scene. This distinguishing him as a quintessential DJ, and visionary producer/musician. Developing an impeccable reputation, his productions have had more aliases than Smith and Jones… Swing 52, New Hippie Movement, and Central Park among others. But whatever the name, Benji’s fans can always tell who’s behind that trademark sound of his.
Rather than concentrating on a specific style, Candelario aims to have a platform where he can truly express creative freedom through a varied selection of music. So far it has proven true… Having licensed several of his past releases to the likes of Ministry of Sound and numerous other European and Japanese labels.
Though his many productions have been praised around the world, Benji is always quick to point out his roots. He is a DJ foremost that produces records. And not a producer that now DJs!
Without compromising his expansive knowledge and exquisite taste, his style remains fun and accessible. When Benji plays, he takes care to bring his listeners with him on his musical journey. And he makes sure they stay with him the whole party through. It has always been important to him that people understand and enjoy his unique musical point of view. This making him a favorite with promoters and club goers alike.
– Arnold Jarvis‘ road to a musical career began at the age of 16 when he sang with the Baltimore Gospel Choir. His rich, Gospel-inflected baritone and unique phrasing made him one of the choir’s most favored soloists.
A Singer, a songwriter and a performer he, just like Robert Owens and Omar, has a voice gifted by the gods. Therefore, no wonder why he’s been touring with countless artists. From Loleatta Holloway to Jocelyn Brown or Jody Watley. But also Queen Latifah, Ultra Naté and Adeva among many others.
Jarvis has collaborated with an impressive list of House Music top producers. This resulting in countless seminal classics. From ‘Take Some Time Out’ with Tommy Musto and Yvonne Turner. To ‘And I Loved You’ with Frankie Knuckles and Satoshi Tomiie. Not to mention ‘Life Goes On’ with Louie Vega. And the list goes on along with Teddy Douglas of The Basement Boys fame (‘Love Of My Life’). And Alix Alvarez (‘Rising Into Joy’). If not Benji Candelario (‘You’ve Let Love Slip Away’, ‘Higher’) or Mannix (‘Stronger Than You Think You Are’).
Arnold is as well remembered as a member of UDAUFL. A collective of artists which Blaze put together back in 2003 in order to raise funds against AIDS.
He has also released a solo album – ‘Just Say It’ – produced by Timmy Regisford and Adams Rios 9 years after.
