Jeffrey Cheng (US)
A true music aficionado and a long-time reveler of the New York Underground music scene for over two and a half decades, Jeffrey has dabbled with DJ-ing and production since the late 90’s. Witnessing the beginnings of the House-music scene in New York and a fan of disco and the electronic music scene of the 80’s, he has built up an extensive knowledge and collection of music. It was not until Midnight Society’s Curtis Atchison convinced him to play in public with him in 2016, that New Yorkers (and many of his surprised industry friends) took note of his ability to weave a story with both old and new, as well as across genres. He attributed this ability from the influence of NY music masters such as François K, Junior Vasquez, Louie Vega and friends such as Danny Tenaglia, Honey Dijon, and Angel Moraes.
In New York, where he’s called home for most of his life, Jeffrey was host of Christina Visca’s well-renowned Birdcage party before COVID hit. He was also a participating artist with DJ Alex Lauterstein, collectively known as Sonic Tales. During the pandemic lockdown and after, the free time has given him the opportunity to work on his production skills to do a number of remixes, including two for his dear friend and club impresario, Roxy, who had numerous hits in the New York Underground House music scene, including “Get Her!”, which was released as The Ride Committee featuring Roxy. She tragically passed in June 2020 before they were released.
For this year’s ADE, he’s thrilled to be back and part of the Mainframe/Aviance Records Party as well as mingling with fellow industry folks at other events and panels.
