One Magical Weekend Featured DJS | Riptide at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark | WE Party: Vogue at Epcot© | E-Tea Dance at Epcot©
CATCH THE WAVES OF SOUND BY INTERNATIONAL DJS/PRODUCERS TWISTED DEE AND BRETT HENRICHSEN AT RIPTIDE at DISNEY’S TYPHOON LAGOON WATERPARK ON FRIDAY JUNE 6, 2014
Brett Henrichsen, born in Hollywood Hills, California, is an International Circuit DJ and is one the busiest and hardest working DJ's in the US.
Henrichsen has always had a passion for dance music. Working by day as a Marketing Specialist for IBM, Brett spent nights in clubs and record stores watching and learning from top DJ’s and listening to his favorite style of music: high energy, vocal and progressive dance. Frustrated to learn that the vast majority of music he was hearing in the clubs was not available for purchase by the general public, he started the CD compilation series MASTERbeat in an effort to make these tracks available to more than just the nightclub DJ. The series proved to be immensely popular and led Brett to leave the corporate world to start his own independent record label, Trax Recording.
Henrichsen met his first artist Erin Hamilton through mutual friends and introduced her to the dance and gay community by producing their first single, "Dream Weaver." Trax Recording continued to produce original dance hits with Erin Hamilton’s "The Flame" and debut album "One World", along with singles from other artists including Lonnie Gordon and Sheryl Lee Ralph. Always fascinated by the skills and talent of DJ's, it was the next logical step in Brett's musical career to begin DJing himself. After years of “on the job training” running a record label, attending clubs and major events and feeling everyone’s frustration after an occasional night of “off music”, Brett quickly rose to the top of DJ stardom after appearances at several major circuit parties.
The highlight of Brett's DJ career came this past year when within 3 days of each event, he played at Rio's Carnival and headlined Sydney's Mardi Gras - spinning to over 15,000 people in one of the world's largest dance events.
Chances are you'll find Brett on a dance floor near you as he travels virtually every weekend playing at clubs and events around the world.
Sexy, primeval and powerful…International DJ/Producer Twisted Dee will start the magical waves of sound…
Dee Martello (professionally known as Twisted Dee) brings her unique blend of tribal and progressive house music to Riptide at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark. Flawless mixing, soul-pounding basslines and dramatic drops and peaks draw crowds to the dance floor and keep them there.
While her audience's visceral enjoyment is most important to Dee, her personal mission is to enhance their experience by introducing new dance music produced around the globe. Early on, this desire to play new and better music led Dee to the field of music production. As her skills sharpened, so did her notoriety. Dee's mixes have reached into the Top 20 of Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play Chart many times, including her own track, Twisted Dee's "Drop That Beat" and Lisa Hunt's "Joint is Jumpin'" which was featured in an episode of Queer as Folk. Dee's mixes have also appeared in videos on the Logo channel, and her mix of Ari Gold's Wave of You received Logo Channel's “Sexiest Video of the Year” award. Dee's most recent accomplishments are the BillBoard #1 Dance remix of Gloria Estefan's 'Hotel Nacional', and Debby Holiday's 'Never Give Up' (Billboard #9). Dee has remixed many other artists such as Beyonce, RuPaul, Charo, Paulina Rubio, Nelly Furtado, Michael Jackson, The Killers, The Disco Biscuits, Inaya Day, Amuka, Jason Dottley & T. Mills, just to name a few.
Hailing from Long Island, New York, Dee began her career first in her father's night club and then in other local clubs. As her personal and professional identity developed, Dee began playing to audiences throughout Long Island and New York City as well as on Fire Island, initially at several clubs in Cherry Grove and later and currently in the Fire Island Pines, where she is a resident DJ. When not on her home turf, Dee travels extensively playing in China, Canada, Brazil, and Mexico. Over the years, Dee has been featured in major dance events including Ascension Fire Island, White Party Miami, Winter Party Miami, Winter Music Conference Miami, NYC Pride, Rio and Sao Paulo Gay Prides, Carnival and New Years Eve in Rio de Janeiro, Gay Days Orlando, Circuit Heaven Shanghai, and Bal En Blanc Montreal.
Dee's love of her art includes an active interest in and commitment to her fellow DJs and music producers. To help both new and established producers get their product out to the public with the proper recognition and financial rewards, Twisted Dee started her own music label, Hammer Music USA. In its infancy, Hammer nonetheless includes an impressive list of producers including Mike Cruz, Chad Jack, Mike Ivy, DJ Paulo, Mike Rizzo, Steve Redant, Dave Rose, Phil Romano, Micky Friedmann, J Zuart, Deep Influence, FC Nond, Alyson Calagna, Solar Sun, Jose Spinnin, Dario Gomez, Jose Velez & Peter Presta, with others ready to join the ranks of Hammer.
Labeled the “DJ's DJ”, Twisted Dee is admired by her peers and fans alike. Promoters who have worked with Dee praise her professionalism, talent, approachability, and passion to always please her crowd.
Dee now resides outside of Orlando Florida, where she focuses her time exclusively on making music and touching as many people as possible through her live performances and production work.
