DJ Kostas
via former Red DJ, Rob Tillman (Deesko) - "Setting the mood and tone at Red for nearly 5 years, Kostas had eclectic tastes in music but managed to play completely off the beaten path. Kostas had a great ear for music. He defined what you expected to hear if you went there early and he just worked it so well.

I vividly remember walking in one night, grabbing a drink, walking around the room and saying "Hello" to everyone, and out of nowhere Kostas played "Everything's Changing" by Groove Collective. It was the first time I'd ever heard it (as far as I know, he broke that record at Red) and it was one of those perfect moments where the visuals, the music and the crowd clicked, and I was immersed in that song, and in that moment. I've probably had 5 or 6 instances like that in all of my years going to clubs & that was one of them."
Thomas Blondet
Thomas Blondet
Thomas Blondet is known for his skill as both a producer and a DJ based in Washington, DC. His tracks reflect the ease with which he moves from genre to genre when he mixes sounds in his studio and his remixes successfully take on the challenge of incorporating international melodies with steady beats that his followers can dance to. Starting his career as a DJ in the 1990s dance music scene in Washington, DC, Thomas has infused just about every type of beat-oriented genre such as deep house, speed garage, drum’n’bass, hip-hop, reggae, and dub with Arab, Latin, Indian, Balkan, Kurdish and Caribbean influences. This musical aptitude has served him well both in the studio and the DJ booth as today he maintains a Sunday night residency at DC’s headquarters of everything organic, Eighteenth Street Lounge. Through his label Rhythm & Culture, Thomas Blondet has released the European Coaster EP and chilltempo Echo Chamber EP. He has since released several hand-crafted remixes of music by Balkan Beat Box, Nickodemus, Sola Rosa, Mr. Confuse and Fort Knox Five. Look out for upcoming remixes, tracks and live DJ sets by the man who never stops working and doesn’t set limits on his level of creativity.
