Brian Cid is a Brooklyn-based DJ & pr oducer with a level of musical talent that has taken the underground electronic music scene by storm. His original productions have found homes on a number of the most credible and tastemaking record labels, with a style that touches deep house, techno, progressive house and more, with no boundaries whatsoever. This catalogue of innovative, genre-defying tracks has given Brian the opportunity to grace the decks at the best clubs, parties, & events across the globe, and has led to a DJ Mag nomination for 2017 Best Breakthrough DJ in their Best of North America awards.
After starting to play the drums as a kid growing up, Brian began to create his own productions as early as 14 years old. Shortly after, he began his first foray into the music industry with a successful decade-long career in the Hip Hop and Pop scene as an audio engineer, where he worked with the world’s biggest stars. After fine-tuning his production techniques and developing his own unique style & sound, the Brooklyn ambassador decided to tap into his love of club culture and enter the world of house music – a genre that vibrates with him in such a way that he can freely express himself. Brian’s original productions have been released on labels such as Guy J’s Lost & Found, Hot Since 82’s Knee Deep In Sound, Manjumasi, Get Physical, microCastle, Cityfox & more. Support on his music has come across the board from both longstanding DJ legends, as well as the new wave of club tastemakers. Everyone from Richie Hawtin, Pete Tong, Hernan Cattaneo, Lee Burridge, and Joris Voorn, to Adriatique, Damian Lazarus, Thugfucker & Tale of Us have championed the sounds of Cid. With his passion for nightlife, as well as some memorable club experiences in the NY scene – Brian’s DJ career was born out of his organic talent for mixing melodic, lush, sublime & unexpected sounds. In a short period of time, he became a regular name on the bills of NYC’s biggest mainstays such as Output, Verboten, Cielo, Pacha, Marquee and Sankeys. These clubs also became his testing ground where he could bring his tracks to life outside of the studio, and see firsthand the crowd’s reactions that he had been hearing about from the passionate supporters of his music. More recent gigs include the Cityfox Experience, Mixmag Lab and Members Only in his home base of NY, and tours all across the U.S. from Boston to Burning Man. Global tour highlights include The BPM Festival & Hardpop in Mexico, Coda Toronto & Stereobar Montreal in Canada, Amsterdam Dance Event, Cinema Hall Budapest, and tours of India, Argentina, the Middle East & more.
Never one to be content in his accomplishments, the next chapter in the musical journey of Brian Cid is the official launch of his project Endangered: a deep journey to the eclectic side of electronic music. The Endangered concept is both a record label for Brian to showcase his own music as well as other high-caliber artists he respects, but also an event series that combines music with live performance & art. Years of collaborative efforts between a team of like-minded people have resulted in the development of these intimate live art showcases & sonic experiences.
