Steven Feinberg’s esoteric DJ style reflects more than two decades spent performing and researching music. His Masters’ Degree in Liberal Studies and Ethnomusicology at Duke University allowed him to delve deep into the study of jazz, hip hop, electronic music, and various Latin genres. This exposure to so many diverse music genres contribute to his unique DJ style, which can include a wide variety of house and other electronic genres, as well as funk, Latin, jazz, hip hop, nu disco, reggae, downtempo, Arabic, and afrobeat. As a DJ, he has been behind the decks in London, Ibiza, Playa Del Carmen, and Miami. Locally, he has held residencies at events and venues including Solas, Babylon, Revolution (Lincoln Theatre), and Red Room. He currently serves as Resident DJ at Mosaic Lounge, hosting a number of parties including We All Love House, Russian Night, Discoteque, and Sultry, and is a Co-Planner and Resident DJ at the Mosaic Spring and Fall Music Festivals, the “Mosaic in Miami” events held during the Miami Winter Music Conference, and the Mi Casa Music Holiday in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.
