Biography

As one-half of Sfere Recordings along with house legend Kerri Chandler, Dennis Ferrer’s name has rapidly built momentum over the past five years amongst house music aficionados. Ferrer's soulful and afro-house influenced productions have appeared on leading house music labels stateside and in Europe. With a discography of original productions that extend from respected labels such as Sfere, Ibadan, Large, and King Street to Basic Recordings, Madhouse and Chillifunk, Ferrer is poised at the very top of the game. He is also widely accepted as one of the leading remixers of this generation of deep house producers and has lent additional production to multiple works on Distant, Defected, Papa, King Street, Large and Slip n Slide labels to name a few. Hits of the past include afro-house biggies “Funu” (Basic Recordings), “Ko Ko” (Ibadan), “Reach 4 Freedom” (Kingstreet) and “Dem People Go” (Kingstreet) to soulful numbers such as “Wonderful People” (Metaphor), “Joy to the World” (Sfere) and his classic Soul Collective series on Large Records. Currently buzzing from the Ferrer catalogue: his exquisite production of “It’s A Beautiful Life”, a remix of S.U.M.O.’s “Stay”, and the sublime “Sandcastles” (co-produced with Ibadan’s Jerome Sydenham), reworkings of D’Jaimin’s “Oule Oule” (Slip N’ Slide) and Dubtribe Sound System’s “Nothing Is Impossible” (Defected).
