Abel Sanchez was born in the Bronx, and raised in Paterson, NJ. Ever since he was a kid his favorite pass time was listening to the radio and imitating his favorite DJ's. Soon after getting turntables and a mixer as a gift from his dad, his passion for playing music had him DJ-ing parties. Before long he was playing in local NJ clubs. But it wasn't the same as being on the radio. So Abel enrolled into The Connecticut School Of Broadcasting, upon graduating, Abel got his start at WKTU where he was a phone-op/producer. It was there that he established a friendship with Broadway Bill Lee and his wife, Beth Bacall. Abel wasted no time in absorbing all he could from his mentors, and soon thereafter, Abel landed an On-Air gig at WAWZ/STAR 99.1 NYC, where under Beth s tutelage he quickly became an established personality taking his air shift from 21st place to a tie for 4th in the Arbitron ratings.
In 2004 Abel was an A.I.R Award nominee for Mixshow DJ of the Year. In addition to his on air talents his production skills did not go unnoticed as he completely re-imaged and rebranded the station. These abilities caught the attention of Jarad Broadcasting who recruited Abel to be the voice of "The World Famous" WLIR as well as becoming the afternoon personality for sister station WBON 98.5 "La Fiesta" In addition, Abel was Production Director for all three Jarad Broadcasting Stations WLIR 107.1, WBON 98.5, WDRE. When given the opportunity to join WNYZ/Pulse 87.7 staff Abel did not hesitate!

|CHECK OUT MARTIN GARRIX’S INSANE $5 MILLION AIRBNB FROM COACHELLA|
Like Burning Man, Coachella is suffering from mass commodification and a lot of rich people invading a space for a set period of time and creating a microcosm of fashion and culture. Unlike Burning Man, this has been the case at Coachella for years already.
As artists generally avoid the camping areas at festivals like this, they’ve opted to instead rent out lavish homes via services like AirBnB. Martin Garrix for instance, who performed Saturday night at the festival, was put up at this La Quinta Airbnb, and enjoyed the $5 million estate that is 3,888 square feet.

|Swedish House Mafia Reunion at Coachella 2017|
The potential of a Swedish House Mafia Reunion at Coachella 2017 is starting to gain more traction every day. While we ran a similar article around the evidence of why we believe Daft Punk potentially could be announcing something big at Coachella 2017, we are now turning our gaze to something equally as insane. Yes we know what you are saying – ‘no way, Steve Angello is too bitter', or ‘Axwell and Ingrosso are doing fine without him!'. So while this concept is a bit far fetched we have seen some trends that point to the unlikely. These indicators could be something, or they could be absolutely nothing. Still there are some signs we need to examine a little closer or else we would be doing our readers a disservice.

|FEED ME ACCIDENTALLY SHARES PICTURE OF MARSHMELLO WITH HIS HELMET OFF|
Well, that’ll do it folks. Feed Me‘s Instagram last night has irrefutably revealed who is the man behind the Marshmello.
We’ve already shared evidence that we know who Marshmello is, but now we finally have a legitimate picture of the man behind the mask in full Marshmello garb with nothing to hide his face. Caught in the reflection of a mirror in what’s probably an artist’s green room, Marshmello can be seen taking video on his phone while someone else has the mask donned in his stead.
