✦✦ Vick Lavender Bio✦✦
Alma Cabaņa” translated means “For the Love of Cuba.” The phrase is especially fitting for Vick Lavender’s bio – not only because elements of African and Latin culture have been a constant influence in his music, but because Cuba is the origin of his heritage. As a DJ and producer, Vick has been a global music aficionado for over 20 years and continues to elevate the genre of house music by creating unique, Afro-Cuban rhythms and world beats representing the mosaic of the African Diaspora. His mastery of this soulful jazz/fusion sound gives his music the ability to call to our ancestral spirit and permeate the soul of its listener.
Internationally known for being one half of the production team / live band Mr. A.L.I. (African. Latin. Influences),Throughout his career he has been credited with writing some of house music’s classic singles, including Respect our Love ft Carla Prather and "Vaporizer" ft Peter Jericho which by the way was featured in The Jeep Wrangler campaign http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1IMXtpN5fo.
Currently Vick runs his own digital label “Sophisticado Recordings” which is responsible for some of the most innovative deep house recordings to come out in recent memory. With records such as the jazz fusion based track “Vida”, along with deep house anthems “First Kiss" ft Carla Prather, and "So Lonely" ft Nicole Mitchell not to mention the live recording of the Chicago fusion EP, Vick Lavender and his label continues to push the boundaries of deep house, you can find Sophisticado recordings at www.traxsource.com.
Vick continues to be one of the most sought after DJ’s on the house music
circuit, having made guest performances in South Africa, London, Toronto and NYC’s Club Love . For over 10 years he has remained an icon of Miami’s famous Winter Music Conference, with his legendary parties drawing hundreds of “house heads” and international devotees.
Currently, Vick resides in Chicago and has a bi weekly at Ultra Lounge(aka) Tini Martini,the night is called "Fusion" because of all of the different influences of music that played there it's only fitting.
