The A.M. Group is back with “Drop: Local Flavor from Local DJ’s”, this year spinning House music at the Muse every Saturday night from now to October, from 10 pm til closing,
with guests DJs.
DJs Tony Romojaro (Trumoc) and Tony Camilo (Tonic), bored of the options offered by the Dominican Republic’s dance scene, felt the need for something more organic and melodic. A.M. Group (Ante Meridian, the first moment after midnight) was born. Trumoc went to Barcelona, and Tonic came to to Nantucket. A.M.has grown into a team of artists stimulated by House music: DJ Devlin (Hip-Hop and Drum’n’bass DJ), Rubén García A.(graphic designer), Rob T (electro and minimal so there are no distractions), César “Bass” Romero, DJ Hyper, Buddha, Kaku, Heather McKenzie and Steven Libby.
Here’s a video compiled from last season at the Rose & Crown.
You can find more about A.M. on their MySpace site, where you can also download free an hour long set of the Summer Sessions 2007, compiled and mixed by Tonic, Billy Desmond, and DJ Devlin.
