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!

|MOST POPULAR EDM HASHTAGS ON INSTAGRAM ARE...|
On sites such as Instagram and Twitter, a word preceded by a pound sign (#) is known as a hashtag.
Hashtags make it easy for the social media users to find images and messages on their favorite social media platform with a consistent theme.
On August 4, 2015, Instagram banned the most popular hashtag in dance music, #EDM, as it “violated guidelines.” Information about the ban wasn’t known for quite some time until Instagram claimed that they will “block certain hashtags when they are consistently being used to share images and videos that violate our Community Guidelines.”

|Here Are The 10 Best Clubs That Closed This Year|
While most of the end of year lists are probably to do with best songs of the year, artists to watch, albums of the year, and more, ElectronicBeats.net took the time to come up with a thoughtful list of clubs that had shut down this year. While readers might not be entirely familiar with each club, we respect the impact losing each one has on their respective communities. I can definitely relate coming from a city which lost one of the greatest clubs ever fairly recently -The Guvernment in Toronto.
Of course, this list doesn’t cover every club that has closed this year. With the lockout laws in Australia, there have been more than a few establishments that have had to close their doors. There’s likely more than one club or venue in the US that has also been lost.
