One of the most influential producers in electronic music, DJ Icey, is making his way to Phoenix next month to show off his crisp, cooled cadence. With his super smooth flow and cold undertones, DJ Icey has been held responsible for the spark of electronic music in his hometown of Orlando, Florida.
Back in the day, DJ Icey mastered the turntables with trance and house music. Throughout his career, he has developed into a producer whose music one cannot categorize. If you consider his music over these last 25 years you’ll come to appreciate his contrasting styles at particular points of his career.
Today, DJ Icey brings in the tones of modern electronic music and combines them with his old school elements to completely own each one of his tracks. Just last year, DJ Icey chilled out his listeners out with his most recent album, “Take a Little Take a Lot.” The 15 track album demonstrates both the light and deep elements of his production style.
“I’m always making music, I get up and make music, I make music before I go to bed and at all points in-between.”
It’s obvious that DJ Icey has been creating music all across the board for the last three decades. In 2000, he received global recognition for his FFRR Essential Mix compilation. Listen as he aids the turn of the century with his quick rhythms and steady flow.
