Mr Wright (EDM Room)



Born on Thanksgiving Day in White Plains, New York, Mr. Wright has been an avid fan of music since a young age. The first song he fell in love with was Can't Touch This by MC Hammer, which he would rewind and playback until his Cassette Tape broke. Given a sesame street tape recorder at a young age Mr. Wright began recording sounds at an early age. His tastes were shaped by the emerging sounds of rap in the 80s while simultaneously taking in the R&B, Soul, and Funk music his parents listened to at block parties and while making the drive down the Henry Hudson Parkway and the Bronx River Parkway back and forth to Manhattan and the Bronx to visit his extended family on Weekends. Every so often during these rides the sounds of Blackbox, KLF, C&C Music Factory, and Sade would further increase his appreciation for music. At the time Mr. Wright did not realize that those sounds were originating from the United Kingdom and beyond.

Fifteen years later Mr. Wright would pick up his first pair of CDJ 800s and begin a 10 year journey behind the ones and twos. After holding down residencies at the Auld Shebeen in Fairfax, VA from 2007 - 2009, Mr. Wright got a life changing opportunity to move to the UK. Finding the opportunity to DJ in London (Ministry of Sound - The Loft) and Loughborough, England (Vodka Revolutions) Mr. Wright realized that in order to get to the next level he'd have to learn to make his own music.
After his work visa expired he promptly returned to the United States in 2011 and Mr. Wright set off to not only to learn to produce music but to begin to promote his own events by starting his own entertainment company Wizdom Entertainment LLC.

Currently you can find Mr. Wright throwing Electronic music themed boat parties in Washington DC on the Potomac River. His "Party on the Potomac" series is currently heading into it's 4th season and it's featured guests such as Lizzie Curious and J Paul Getto.

His production work has accomplished a major milestone getting signed with his partner in production Micfreak. This year both Mr. Wright and Micfreak released two tracks in 2016 for Pool E Music Publishing on both their Ambassade Records label Mr. Wright & Micfreak - Funky Horns (Original Mix) and their Fine Tune label Mr. Wright & Micfreak - La Futura Del Soul. Funky horns peaked at #22 on the Beatport House Music Charts and La Futura Del Soul debuted at #42 on the New Release Chart on beatport when it was release September 2nd.

Mr. Wright and Micfreak have recently teamed up to form a Duo called The Distrkt set to debut in 2017. Be on the lookout for their new releases and shows as they might be at a festival near you in 2017.
