circuit pioneer, Warren Gluck helped define todays circuit parties
back when many of us were still dancing in diapers. During his prolific
25-year career, Warren has captivated audiences around the world with his
distinct blend of jazzy instrumental, creamy vocal house, and high energy
trance music. He has also dutifully earned the respect and admiration of
several generations of dance floor disciples by anticipating trends and
creatively incorporating them into his live sets. It is with great honor
and anticipation that the White Party Committee welcomes legendary DJ Warren
Gluck back to Miami Beach where he will headline Leche on Friday night at
doesnt make it down to South Florida as often as hed like, but
hes no stranger to Miami Beach or the White Party he has played
the past four Recovery Parties. He is truly looking forward to headlining
one of White Party Weeks major events this year. Im extremely
honored, Warren says. I love the club Level, so Im really
looking forward to spinning there, and to working with [lighting director]
Ross Berger again.
on Long Island along with two siblings, Warren developed a fascination with
music at an early age while studying voice in high school and singing in
a chorus. Shortly thereafter he discovered his natural turntable talents
while making tapes at home, and eventually found work DJing at various local
clubs. Word of his proficiency quickly spread, and after gigs at The Monster
on Fire Island and in Key West, Warren was chosen to play the grand opening
of The Monster in New York City in 1982. He still spins four nights a week
at the West Village club, regularly plays at the Pavilion on Fire Island
during the summer, and frequently travels around the globe performing at
the circuits premier parties.
workaholic, Warren first found inspiration back in the early 70s while listening
to Ray Thode, the opening DJ at the Saint in New York City, the renowned
club where Warren eventually held a residency himself. During his remarkable
career, Warren has had the opportunity to influence and inspire his own
protegees, not the least of whom is DJ Keana. Warren will share billing
with Keana at Leche. When hes not working, Warren loves to go out
dancing, and says he appreciates hearing a wide variety of musical styles.
One night could find him enjoying the sounds of Susan Morabito; the next
night he could be dancing the night away under the direction of Junior Vasquez.
I appreciate a good evening of music, whatever style it is,
he says. Im open to many styles and am always picking up pointers.
You can never stop learning.
like what you hear at Level on Friday night (and we know you will), you
can also catch Warren at one his many other upcoming events, including a
return to Miami in March for his debut at DHRFs Winter Party alongside
another fellow Leche DJ, Tracy Young. You can also catch him at his annual
pre-party down in Sydney for Mardi Gras. If you want to take Warren home
with you (figuratively, of course), you can purchase the Cherry 5 CD as
well as the forthcoming Pump, the Centaur compilation that Warren
has mixed for the acclaimed Global Groove series. The CD is slated for release
Warren is extremely grateful for his past experiences
and thoroughly optimistic about the future. His love of dance
music and keen ability to deliver it to the masses in grand
style will undoubtedly ensure that Warren Gluck remains an
essential contributor to the circuit party scene. Its
been a great honor for me all through the years to entertain
all the boys and girls, and I look forward to many more years
of it. Its a great pleasure.
