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.

      Hey, D! Maaaaaaaan, I DESPERATELY need this track! From your May 23rd mix at 1:12:50ish…That female vocal w/gospel organ “Hey, Boy!” Man, I have not been able to find that song ANYWHERE, and I don’t know the actual title. Can you PLEASE run that for me for about 4:30 and send a file? It would be MUCH appreciated, dude. Either mixed, or just a file of the actual track. I have been trying to find it for many years. When I tell cats I need “Hey, Boy!” by some chick who’s name I don’t know, I just get a crazy look! LOL Thanks, Darrel! Send to kaje5ohh@aol.com
