Mellow Man Ace
A Hispanic rapper known for bilingual delivery and novelty rhymes.
Born Ulpiano Sergio Reyes in Havana, Cuba, 1967, he left Cuba with his family at the age of four and resettled in Los Angeles.
His debut album "Escape from Havana" was released on Capitol in 1989 and featured production from The Dust Brothers and Def Jef. Almost a year later, the single "Mentirosa" was a Top 20 hit with Ace rapping over a crafty hook from Santana's "Evil Ways". Also a member of the Latin Alliance project and Reyes Brothers (and the younger brother of Cypress Hill's Sen Dog), Mellow Man Ace recorded one further album, "The Brother with Two Tongues", before virtually retiring from the scene. He returned in 2000 with the release of "From Darkness Into Light".
DJ from Illinois, USA
The diva we all know as Dajae began her musical career in the early Eighties. Before joining forces with Cajmere, she was making R&B and singing in Soul bands all over Chicago.
The early nineties found Dajae as the Queen of Cajual Records working in a partnership with Curtis Jones (aka Cajmere / Green Velvet) and turning out a number of huge club anthems together. “Brighter Days”, “U Got Me Up”, “Is It All Over My Face”, and “Fakes And Phonies”, were all Top 10 Billboard Club Play and “Day By Day” made it all the way to #1! Those recordings were remixed by a “Who’s Who” list of the greats of House Music: Masters at Work, Johnny Fiasco, Glenn Underground, Todd Terry, Danny Tenaglia, Derrick Carter, Carl Craig, Chez Damier, Ron Trent, and Deep Dish.
Since then she has worked with Junior Sanchez and produced yet another Top Ten Billboard Club Play hit, “B With U”, on Roger Sanchez’s R-Senal imprint.
This woman is a driving force in House Music and her live appearances are what memories are made of!
