Darrel Ellerbe, a Morristown, New Jersey native enjoyed listening to the midday mixes that were showcased on WBLS(NYC) in the early to mid-’80s. He would have his mother record them while he was attending school. After hearing them, he decided that he wanted to get into the music industry as a Recording Engineer/DJ.

After graduating from the Institute of Audio Research, he interned at a recording studio for several months. He was offered a job as Studio Manager/Engineer at Prime Cuts Studios in midtown Manhattan(NYC) owned by DJ Mark Kamins and Tuta Aquino. While working there, he worked with people such as; Keith Thompson, Justin Strauss, Jomanda, Degrees of Motion, Victor Simonelli and Barrington Levy to name a few.

He moved on to Warlock Records(NYC) and became the Promotions Department Director. While working there, he produced several projects on the side with multiple artists such as; The Thompson Project, Outburst Coalition feat. Gary L, Mirage feat. Gary L, Outburst, and On Top.
Darrel has made guest appearances on European radio stations as well as New York’s 98.7 Kiss Club Classics Show hosted by Jay ‘Mixin’ Dixon.

    Greetings, Darrel! I typically only tune into DJ Donna Edwards’ mixes here. She’s a long-time friend, and I love her music. For whatever reason, I selected one of your shows earlier today, and now I’m going through ALL of them! Great sound, my man. I’m a “Club” music fan. Not House, but the rythmic, smooth, “Club” sound that I came up on with Timmy Regisford, Tony Humphries, Tee Scott, and other NY/NJ DJs of the early ’80s. Yes, you’re mixing “today’s” music, but it has the sound I love. Clean, harmonic vocals and such, driving bass lines, keyboards etc. Bravo, sir. Your sound takes me back to my “old days,” of nights at the club that I didn’t want to end. I’m a fan!

    Darrel I have become such a huge fan of yours. I found a mix you did for 98.7 Kiss FM. It was an old school classic house mix and I have been listening to it weekly. Love your mixes. Thank You
