On this edition of On The Fringe Wednesday we talk about Puerto Rican House DJ upstart, Cerk.
Carlos “Cerk” Rivera is a young up and coming DJ from Aguada Puerto Rico. Cerk started his career playing in BarCode in Aguada setting the west side on fire with his young talent and passion for this side of the island. He has played on some of the most legendary beach parties in the Isabela and Aguada beaches. Cerk has also played in some of the biggest venues in the island including Atmosfera, The Vatican, Red Shield. His dedication and talent has led him in his very short career to land a deal with one of the island’s biggest EDM record companies, Disquera Virtual. Cerk has also opened for some big name international acts such as Adultnapper, Sergio Santos, Basti, Rednek and more.
What can you expect when you go see Cerk mix live? Well you can expect a Miami/Ibiza feel of different types of house mostly deep house. Including funky beats, minimal music and deep deep feel. In an island where top 40 and dubstep rule the club scene, it’s refreshing to have a fresh, young DJ focused on funk and house. Shaylom and Cerk are the lifeblood of the west club scene and the youngbloods of deep house in Puerto Rico. Watch out for Cerk to reach a high level in the island playing music that is not mainstream.
