Music is in the genetic code of Andrew Venegas known globally as the in demand DJ/producer Onionz. A recognized New York legend, Onionz was immersed in a world of music literately from birth with his Latin/Jazz icon father, Victor Venegas playing upright bass in the company of Jazz legends Ella Fitzgerald, Tito Puente and Celia Cruz and Mongo Santamaria in the 1970s and early 80s. Prior to entering his teens Andrew was appearing in front of thousands in New York City playing percussion with amazing artists such as Dave Amram, Candido, Steve Berrios, Paquito DeRivera and childhood friend Adam Cruz (drummer for Chic Correa).
Evolving across to electronic music, in 1982 Onionz hands were on his first set of turntables and the rest is history. Early gigs from Andrew were characterized as legendary nights and early mornings at almost every NYC venue imaginable. Production wise, Onionz has released over a staggering 100 (originals and remixes) over the last 15 years of studio production with the count on the increase and has a hectic gig and tour schedule, setting off dance floors in over 30 countries with that count continually growing.
His status on the decks is set in stone while his unfathomable understanding of sound and musically creating an emotion has awarded him international recognition in the world of electronic dance music.
With achievements including establishment of his own label Electrik Soul in 1982 and his solid production work gaining attention of the powers that be. With the re launch of Electrik Soul around the corner and a line up of industry heavyweights collaborating with remixes on the ES label, Onionz is set to take the dance music scene to the next dimension. Electrik Soul relaunches with remixes already in the bag from oldskool heavyweights Derrick Carter, T Paterson, Magic Johnson, Bryan Zentz and Jamie Anderson.
New school heavyweights onboard include Worhty, Slok and Sonic Union. Electrik Soul Sessions are in the works that will feature label talent and live VJ sets on the nights along with Onionz himself with the Electrik Soul Band. The Electrik Soul Sessions will elevate your mind.
Electrik Soul is a genre, not stagnant in one style of electronic music, Electrik Soul is a movement in music.
