Pontchartrain - Whiskey Disco / Rocksteady Disco - Detroit

“This is what edits are supposed to sound like.”�~Juno Records

In 2014 after nearly a decade of collecting records, and playing various roles in the dance music scene of Detroit and West Michigan, the Pontchartrain moniker was born. What began as tools for his own personal dancefloor use turned into head-turning release after release of his vision for edits of forgotten classics and sample-heavy house cuts. In a short couple of years, his release catalog has gained support from various well respected artists, garnered him international bookings and acclaim, and earned him the A&R position for Sleazy McQueen’s highly sought after Whiskey Disco imprint, and Detroit-based Rocksteady Disco. The sounds he chooses, reflect the obvious influences from Detroit’s past, with a new face and ideology that continues to entertain and surprise.
In his own words “A lot of people have forgotten what it means to be a DJ and what the greatest part of that job is. I want to feel like I’m stepping into a house party every time I screw in my needles. I want people in the room to feel the same. I want them to be happy, to feel relaxed, to feel at home. I want them to feel like everything is ok in that moment.

His releases span BPM, genre, and style in a way that encompass this feeling, and have been featured and charted by a slew of serious industry names. Several releases have already been repressed, and his edits and originals have been featured by several prominent music blogs: The initial EP on new label Lovedancing, was described as “Setting the bar very high indeed” by the UK’s largest record distributor, Juno. And a recent release on Whiskey Disco was described as having “dynamic arrangement missing from so many contemporary edits” by the curators at Piccadilly Records.

His track selection, DJ style, and music ideology all stem from years of mentoring from some of Detroit’s greatest, and from the passion and want to learn everything he could from them. Buying and selling record collections to earn his rent through college highlights how important crate digging and sourcing has been, and still is to him, and lends an idea of just what to expect during his sets. Pontchartrain is redefining the never ending love affair of classic music with taste, vision, and a dedication that continues to set him apart.

Pontchartrain has projects forthcoming and previously released on Whiskey Disco, Lovedancing, Kolour LTD, Hot Digits, Masterworks Music, Voyeur, Editorial, Rocksteady Disco and Audaz Records.

Erno - Tour Detroit / Paxahau - Detroit

Deeply rooted in the Detroit music scene, Ernie Guerra aka Erno embodies the varied styles of music the city is known to produce. Dabbling in nothing and involved with everything, Erno has been DJing and producing for over 10 years. His sets can be best described as disco and classic house having a love affair with techno, showcasing his love of over 4 decades of dance music. The backbone is funk but is adapted to modern day dance music to create a continuous experience, psychedelic even. Erno is a forefront member of Tour Detroit, the legendary summer party series that traveled to random venues each month. Also a record collector, he co-hosts a weekly 100% vinyl, crate digging night called Slow Jams, which is 8 years and running.
