Darrel Ellerbe, a Morristown, New Jersey native enjoyed listening to the midday mixes that were showcased on WBLS(NYC) in the early to mid-’80s. He would have his mother record them while he was attending school. After hearing them, he decided that he wanted to get into the music industry as a Recording Engineer/DJ.

After graduating from the Institute of Audio Research, he interned at a recording studio for several months. He was offered a job as Studio Manager/Engineer at Prime Cuts Studios in midtown Manhattan(NYC) owned by DJ Mark Kamins and Tuta Aquino. While working there, he worked with people such as; Keith Thompson, Justin Strauss, Jomanda, Degrees of Motion, Victor Simonelli and Barrington Levy to name a few.

He moved on to Warlock Records(NYC) and became the Promotions Department Director. While working there, he produced several projects on the side with multiple artists such as; The Thompson Project, Outburst Coalition feat. Gary L, Mirage feat. Gary L, Outburst, and On Top.
Darrel has made guest appearances on European radio stations as well as New York’s 98.7 Kiss Club Classics Show hosted by Jay ‘Mixin’ Dixon.

      Hey, D! Maaaaaaaan, I DESPERATELY need this track! From your May 23rd mix at 1:12:50ish…That female vocal w/gospel organ “Hey, Boy!” Man, I have not been able to find that song ANYWHERE, and I don’t know the actual title. Can you PLEASE run that for me for about 4:30 and send a file? It would be MUCH appreciated, dude. Either mixed, or just a file of the actual track. I have been trying to find it for many years. When I tell cats I need “Hey, Boy!” by some chick who’s name I don’t know, I just get a crazy look! LOL Thanks, Darrel! Send to kaje5ohh@aol.com

    OK, bruh…KJ here again. Can you give me some intel on that “Don’ t Rain on My Parade” cut? That jawwwn is fire. Tryin’a find it so I can pull it down. Or, if you would be so kind, shoot the file to me via email.

      WHO’S mix IS IT?! I’ve had that Juliet cut since it dropped back in like ’92. That remix is fire. Any idea who did it/can you send me a file?

    Hey, man…Happy New Year! I need a song ID, dude. At 15:25/:30, a good groove that I imagine is called, “Come and Get My Love,” comes on. Who does that one (and is that the title)?

    Hi Darrell, HUGE FAN of yours. What is the name of the song playing on your 10/24/2015 mix at 1:09? I haven’t heard that song in decades. Also do you spin anywhere live?

    1. Darrel

      Hey Ted,
      The name of that song is Karen Anderson ‘I Work Hard To Love You’. I haven’t played anywhere in years. Actually, the last time was at kiss fm 1999. Thank you for checking out the show. Spread the word for me bruh!

I spoke with both Tuta & Keith Thompson on Facebook recently. I’ve been looking for you on Facebook the past 2 years. Are you on facebook?
