If you were to get out a map and track the history of house music – with endless lines sprouting from New York, Chicago and Detroit to points all over the world – you’d have to make a big, red circle around Miami, Florida, and start drawing.
Miami was never ground zero to a full-fledged subcultural movement. But it is where Oscar Gaetan, better known as Oscar G, has lived every day of his life. And that fact alone makes it a hub on the global underground.
An award-winning songwriter, producer, and DJ, Oscar is one of dance music’s brightest and most enduring stars. As part of seminal production teams Liberty City, Murk, and Funky Green Dogs, he boasts hits – Billboard chart-toppers as well as underground smashes – in every decade, every trend, and every market. “Some Lovin’,” “Fired Up,” and “Dark Beat” are more than just tracks: They are moments, shared by clubbers worldwide. They’re the kind of moments Oscar still creates at Space Miami, his hometown superclub, where he’s been a resident DJ for a staggering eight years – coming full circle after a globetrotting career.
Oscar and longtime friend and production partner Ralph Falcon grew up in a Miami enlivened by the fresh spirit of hip-hop. “Break dancing, graffiti and the music that went along with it: That’s really what got me into DJ-ing in the first place,” he says. By the age of 12, he was already spinning at school dances.
Oscar and Ralph started working together at the end of high school, blending the sounds of their youth with the beginnings of house, like Ten City and Blaze; and the darker Euro bands of the time, like Depeche Mode and New Order. “We were always big on doing our own sound, with our own feeling and vibe in every aspect of it; from the way we mixed things to the sounds we chose,” says Oscar. “I remember being obsessed with that for years, and then people started to listen.”
The early years bore some of the work for which they’re still best known, like often imitated, never duplicated vocals “Some Lovin’,” “If You Really Love Someone,” and “Reach For Me” (Tribal). Upon their release in 1993, the pair became instant superstars. “Europe kind of grabbed us,” says Oscar, so they spent a good amount of time touring overseas, eventually visiting every major and minor outpost of the global dance scene, including Zouk Singapore, Ministry Of Sound London, and Stereo Montreal.
“Fired Up!” (Twisted), their biggest hit ever, followed in 1996. It topped the Billboard Dance chart, and even cracked the Top 100, peaking at No. 80. They would go on to remix countless major pop artists, from Madonna to Cher to Donna Summer; and appear on mainstream outlets like MTV and Top Of The Pops. The boys also cut two complete Funky Green Dogs albums for major label MCA, “Star” (1999) and “Super California” (2001). But their own measures of success were still decidedly underground: “Once Junior Vasquez played our records at Sound Factory [in New York], we felt like we could retire, and at that point we were like 20,” says Oscar.
In March 2000, Space opened in downtown Miami with Oscar as the Saturday night resident, just as the world was paying its annual visit for Winter Music Conference. The club – with its cavernous main room, pummeling German sound system and nitrogen blasts – was the talk of dance world, and the legend of Oscar’s residency began to grow.
The year 2003 was a big one. Oscar released the “Live @ Space” (Star 69) compilation, and won the Club World Award for “Best Resident DJ” (which he won again in 2007). Murk set a new Billboard Dance chart record, with five No. 1’s in a single year: Four singles from their self-titled artist album on Tommy Boy Records, and “Dark Beat” (Twisted), tribal house’s first real vocal anthem, which found its way from dance floors onto mainstream radio. “We came up with ‘Dark Beat’ in about 15 minutes. Whenever things come that quickly, you know there’s something to them,” says Oscar. “But we didn’t think radio or anthem; we were thinking more like, ‘Oh man, Danny Tenaglia’s gonna be all over this!’”
In 2006, Oscar became one of Pacha New York’s only non-NY-based monthly residents, strengthening his bond with his home-away-from-home, and its rich dance history. He released a second installment in the Space series in 2007, starting new relationships with Nervous Records in the U.S. and CR2 in the U.K. CR2 also snapped up the Murk catalog, and commissioned new remixes of the classic tracks, including Paul Woolford’s takes on “If You Really Love Someone” and “Reach For Me.” And in 2008, after nearly two decades making music, Oscar released out his first solo album, “Innov8” (Nervous).
Even though his passion for music creation is undeniable, it’s in his DJ booth where Oscar feels most at home. “On the music side, I’ve felt pretty energized lately, because the changes in the industry really enable you to be a lot more experimental and take more chances,” he says. “But DJ-ing to me always comes first: I really believe in it as an art form. Having a residency like Space, with a regular crowd, it’s the ultimate.”

So often in life, the best things are not immediately obvious. Surrounded by mediocrity, their appeal is irresistible upon closer examination. New York City’s Hidden Recordings has exemplified this enduring truth since its founding in 2006. The brainchild of Deepak Sharma and his production partner, Dieter Krause, Hidden Recordings began as a platform for the enterprising duo’s releases and in 2008 expanded into releasing the work of a gifted, international cohort. Because the imprint’s focus has always been on releasing top notch techno, its patient, quality-based approach has earned Hidden Recordings the support of renowned and diverse talents such as Adam Beyer, Marcel Dettmann, Seth Troxler, and legions more.
While techno is undoubtedly the thread that binds together Hidden Recordings’ discography, the fabrics and patterns it connects are numerous. Their releases come alive in big room clubs, yet are just as effective on the terrace at 6 AM – sending dancers off into the world grinning at what they’ve just heard. That diversity also means you can hear Hidden Recordings’ tracks at nearly any point in a long night out. In kind, its catalog unites a broad assortment of DJs: Adam Beyer is known for dropping the unrelenting, cavernous boom of Alejandro Trebor’s “Quemadura del Sol” at Berghain and Fabric, while Seth Troxler licensed DJ Qu’s deeply hypnotic remix of Sharma & Krause’s “Wolkenreise” for his The Lab 03 mix CD on UK house label NRK.
In 2012, Hidden Recordings pursues a demanding release schedule that draws in new talents, such as Plankton, M.A.D.A., Alejandro Trebor, Mike Wall, Bodyscrub, Dolby D, Tom Eirh, and Spark Taberner. Throughout the year, these latest signings’ tracks will embody the darker, expansive techno sound the label is pursuing. Their originals are paired with remixes by a host of respected producers, including Jerome Sydenham, Mark Broom, Xhin, Alex Bau, Roberto Bosco and Kyle Geiger. When a Hidden Recordings release catches DJs’ attention, they want to share it with audiences and their peers. Word-of-mouth endorsements have lent the label an organic momentum that shows no signs of slowing down or drying up. And with bright newcomers and established leading lights maintaining a prolific pace, Hidden Recordings won’t stay hidden much longer.
