Eric Sharp (Rock It Science Laboratories)
One of the main creators of the record label Rock It Science Laboratories, Eric Sharp has risen to the top of the music industry not only by DJing but also by producing original music & remixes, promoting, and throwing awesome events. He is known to play anything from Deep and Funky House to Dirty Acid Techno to pumping Chicago beats to Baile Funk to Baltimore Club Jams to Wobbly Fidget House to French & Italian Electro and everything in between. Inspired by jocks like Derrick Carter and Diplo who take their crowds on a musical journey, Eric always gives people what they need while still managing to keep them guessing and begging for more. Watching Mr. Sharp seamlessly mixing and layering tracks is entertainment in and of itself, and has caught the eye of press, promoters, dj’s, and producers alike.
Norman Stradley will keep you dancing with his funky hip-hop skills mixed with his irrepressible energy of house music.
BB Hayes will connect with the crowd with his infectious personality and flawless mixing style.
