DJ/Producer Jared Dietch aka The Camel Rider has been spinning in New York City clubs and internationally for over 15 years. With influences ranging from African and South American tribal rhythms to the rock anthems of his youth, Jared’s signature style has many influences but is always dramatic with a sexy vibe.
As a producer, The Camel Rider has steadily been building steam since 2003 when “Twisted” [Subliminal Records] reached 5 on the UK Dance chart. In 2007 a rework of what is now considered a classic, “Twisted 2007” was released on Subliminal Sessions 11 and has become another club anthem.
Later in 2007, The Camel Rider’s “Tiny Dancer Remix” [Universal Music Group] made its debut as the Essential New Tune on the BBC’s Pete Tong show. It was heralded by Pete Tong as “an inspired moment in dance music that you can expect to hear on radio all day,” and you did. The Camel Rider’s “Tiny Dancer Remix” was played in heavy rotation on radio stations worldwide and on MTV.
Another BBC Radio 1 Pete Tong pick, The Camel Rider & Mark Alston’s “Addicted” featuring Mark Shine [Wasted Youth Music] was featured on the Future Music Festival 08 CD and is an international radio favorite.
A club smash in 2008, The Camel Rider’s “Fall Down On Me” featuring SuSu Bobien picked up early by Erick Morillo for Subliminal Sessions 12, was the first release on Jared’s own label, Camel Rider Records which debuted with remixes by Mark Alston and DJ Angola.
2009 started with a bang with Camel Rider Records release of “Get Together” by The Camel Rider and Mark Alston featuring Christina Lauren reaching 1 on Xpressbeats, weeks before its’ official launch and 7 on DJ Magazine’s “Dancefloor Destroyers” Top 50 Chart.
DJ Times magazine recently profiled “The Camel Rider’s Path to the Top.” With the launch of Camel Rider Records, the growing popularity of The Camel Rider’s weekly radio show and podcasts and a succession of dance floor hits, the path is clear.
