What’s Curtis Ryan about?
Well, I am a Dance Recording Artist currently residing in NYC originally from Guyana. I love the night club culture, the DJ’s, the crowds, the girls, the fashion, the freedom of individuality and most importantly the music. New York nightlife and has been a major influence in my outlook on life and of course my music.
What do you love most about what you do?
Entertaining people of all walks of life, when I set out to release “Tonight” I wasn’t aware of how far it would reach and how diverse my following would be. It is amazing when you can create something that appeals to people in different countries and social backgrounds.
Why create dance music over any other genre?
Over the years following my move to the United States, I became exposed to, and developed a strong passion for House and Electronica music. On a faithful evening in an underground nightclub, I couldn’t help but notice the way the electronic rhythms captivated its audience, moving bodies in a sea of pulsating beats. At that moment I knew what my true love was. I found his way into the studio with a new creative team and a new vision, and underwent a daring transition.
