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.

    Darrell your mixes are hotttt!!! I listen to you all day, all night. I just can’t get enough of your funky stuff. Thank you so much for sharing.

    P.S. I haven’t been able to save your last couple of mixes to take with me on the go. Have you reconsidered letting us download or is it just my lack of computer savvy?
