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.

"To control mind, body and soul through music" is what DJ/producers Peter Bailey and Richie Santana set out to do every time they perform, whether it's solo, or together as seamlessly as if they were one.
Named after their peak-hour Stereo Productions smash of the same name, the duo's Mind Control residency started in late 2006 at world-famous nightclub Pacha New York. The party takes a bit of a unique approach in the club world, letting the two DJs tag-team track-for-track as their set progresses.
"It allows us to really work off each other, and work off the crowd as well," says Bailey. "Sometimes Richie will play a song, and it will remind me or inspire me to throw up a track that I didn't even expect to play. It has a nice spontaneity to it, and the crowd really seems to appreciate that."
