Kevin Yost

Kevin’s passion is house music, he released his first album in 1998 and has produced seven more since, his latest is called Future Flashback.

There is no one genre or style to classify the many achievements of Kevin Yost. Ever since picking up drumsticks at the age of four, Kevin has been obsessed with creating and performing music. DJ, producer, film composer, drummer...he has consistently thrived and evolved by indulging his passion. In the mid 80s, at the age of eleven, Kevin discovered his life's mistresses: DJing and house music. He spent the next few years fostering his deep jazzy house style, and in 1998 he broke through with his first album, One Starry Night, which has the distinct honor of being considered a deep house classic. With close to 100 single releases, 8 albums and many mix cd's over the years since, Kevin has earned his reputation as an artist who has no desire to stop creating music and pushing forward. Long before electronic music became popular and the word DJ became a household term, Kevin’s focus has been on the integrity of his music and spinning a rhythmic story during his performances. To say the music speaks through Kevin Yost is a veritable truth. His outputs of unreleased tracks are close to 1500. In a month’s time, he has been known to produce up to 30 tracks. For Kevin, DJing is a very personal thing he shares with the people that come hear him play and he is well known for playing an all-original music set. This makes his show unique and allows his fans to experience the deeper nuances of his music, which may never be released. Along with his personal approach to DJing, Kevin has put together a new live show called "Live & Improvised.” Kevin describes this as his "studio on the stage", and, as the name suggests, all of the music is created on the spot. Each gig is completely different, as he tailors his music live to take the crowd on a journey. For Kevin, the show is very special because it allows the audience to experience the music at the moment of its creation. The audience is invited into the private world of Kevin Yost, and given an experience that he has spent his life captivated with, that sacred moment when inspiration manifests into a tangible reality and music is breathed to life. As personal and creative Kevin’s DJ sets can be, his "Live & Improvised" shows are spellbinding to watch as the audible vision flows from him into music and then into the hearts of the crowd.

DJ John Morales-John Morales was born in the Bronx, New York and has been involved in the creation of hit records for the better part of 30 years, playing at spots like Stardust Ballroom, Pippins, Bentleys, Limelight and the infamous Studio 54. Like many DJs of the 70s, John ventured into the studio more through need than necessity, making medleys and remixes because the records in those days were too short and being a DJ, he needed to get more out of the records he was spinning. His now infamous ‘Deadly Medleys’ and ‘Sunshine Acetate Medleys’ brought him to attention of New York disco producers Greg Carmichael and Patrick Adams who were impressed by the hunger and desire of the self-taught engineer. A meeting at New York’s influential WBLS radio station, where Cuban-born Sergio Munzibai worked as musical director alongside Frankie Crocker (and later at Motown Records), would signal the next chapter in Morales’ career resulting in the most prolific remix partnership in the 1980s and 90s. M&M productions have over 650 mixes to their name, with ground-breaking records for the likes of Class Action, Jocelyn Brown, Shakatak, Miami Sound Machine, The Temptations, Tina Turner, The Rolling Stones, Spandau Ballet, Aretha Franklin, Shalamar, Hall & Oates, Candi Station, Billy Ocean, The Commodores and even Peter Schilling and Rod Stewart.

In the mid 80’s he championed His ‘Trouble Funk Sound‘ and brought his sublime blend of dance music to the Warehouse scene. 1985 he was asked to join Kiss and found the prospect of promoting dance music on-air an exciting one. That is when he developed his creativity and skill. To his fans, Paul has an amazing ability to make you want to move, the way he makes the music come alive and his brilliant mixing skills. Paul also found time for the Studio, and lent his remixing skills to Nomad’s UK NO1 ’Devotion’, Junior Reid’s Jamaica NO1 ’One Blood’ and remixed for Blaze, Pet Shop Boys, Soul11Soul, Thelma Houston, Byron Stingily and many more. At his own night ‘Troubles House’ at Legends, a major star in London’s club land, he had many big name guests like Ten City, Todd Terry, Dj Pierre and David Morales.

1990 Kiss went Legal and Paul took over the Saturday Prime spot 2100-2300, which continued as ‘Troubles Original Mix Show for 8 years. Then there was several changes in the Stations music policies, and Paul reluctantly decided to leave. He still delivered his sound to the fans through his night ‘The Loft’ at HQ, with weekly guests like Loleatta Holloway, Jean Carne, Jocelyn Brown, Masters at Work, Tony Humphries, Rosie Gaines, Michael Watford, Darryl Pandy and Barbara Tucker. ’The Loft was voted NO1 Midweek club for 3 years running, by magazines like Time Out, The Face and the Evening Standard.
