The GLobal Groove Network stumbled on to this former NBA player’s radio show on Sirus’s Electric Area. The show is called Sugar Free Radio and it airs every Saturday morning at 11am for an hour. After my first experience listening to these sultry house beats inspired by the Miami and Ibiza beach culture, I fell in love with the journey he created for the listener. I’ve become a weekly listener with my Saturday morning routine and I’m excited at the chance to showcase this talent to our ever growing and evolving network of DJs, Producers, and Performers who make up the EDM scene today…

International music sensation Rony Seikaly has made a meteoric rise through the DJ ranks over the past few years, regularly performing at some of the world’s biggest clubs, including LAVO in NYC, LIV in Miami and Wet Republic in Las Vegas. This summer, Seikaly will begin residencies at LIO in Ibiza and REVEL in Atlantic City, all while celebrating the release of his first compilation on Nervous Records, “Nervous Nitelife Presents Rony Seikaly,€ which came out on June 5th.

The album opens with the outstanding “€œMood That I Love”€ and builds from there, combining inspired original tracks with songs from buzz worthy producers such as Catz & Dogs, Julien Sandre, Walker & Royce and Whelan and Discelo. The fourteen track compilation serves as the culmination of years of hard work that have moved Seikaly from a DJ pursuing his passion project to one of the hottest name Seikaly s in the industry.

The former NBA superstar, who earned the increasingly appropriate nickname “€œThe Spin Doctor”€ on the court, is not new to music or DJing. Since the age of 14, Seikaly has had a music room in any home he has lived in. Here, Seikaly plays music for friends, parties, gatherings, birthdays. Any type of event, and Seikaly is the one behind the decks. The more friends and friends of friends were exposed to Seikaly’s talents, the more he was encouraged to share his DJing skills and selection with the public. Four years ago, Seikaly was convinced to play out for fun, and the DJ rollercoaster ride has not stopped. “Sports will always be my love. But music will always be my passion,” …

Seikaly’s music background is diverse. This is apparent n his DJing style. Growing up on everything from the Police to Genesis to KISS, Seikaly’s family regularly exposed him to classical music. Seikaly has moved with the times embracing disco at its peak during his teenage years, moving to R&B and early hip hop from LL Cool J to Kurtis Blow in the ’80s and early ’90s, and developing a kinship for electronic music through all its developing stages. Speaking knowledgeably about various musical eras, Seikaly has an inherent understanding for the music that has inspired him and influenced his unique style. Dubbed “Rony Style” by such electronic music heavyweights as Erick Morillo, Seikaly himself loosely defines it as “happy underground.
