Demitri Anastasio Kesoglides, known professionally by his stage name SANiTY (or DJ SANiTY), is an American DJ, producer, and songwriter who has been cutting his teeth in the music world for over a decade now. Hailing from New York City, the Queens native has had a culturally diverse upbringing which has lent itself to his eclectic musical palette. Art and music was in his life at the very start. "My mom wrote poetry all the time, and recited her poems to my brothers and I while we grew up, instead of bedtime stories. My pops is considered an OG graffiti artist, his tag is SJK 171. He also deejayed and did photography in his past life. My parents grew up in the Bronx and Washington Heights and I had aunts and uncles in different parts of Brooklyn... so my brothers and I were always back and forth between boroughs when we were little. We basically got the full spectrum of NYC art, music, and culture." Demitri loved art but wanted to find a way to make it a career, as he didn't have innate artistic talent. An article about Bad Boy Records sparked his imagination to merge business and music. At 19 years old, Demitri scored his first internship with Atlantic Records/Warner Music, and (he believed) his career path was headed towards that of an aspiring music industry executive. In school, he pursued business degrees with music industry concentrations -- first at Baruch College for undergrad and then New York University for their graduate music business program. He did this while temping at different record labels and music companies throughout his academic career, trying to carve his own path. DJing started out as a side hustle for Demitri that grew out of his knack for staying on top of the charts and discovering new artists/sounds/trends (Billboard.com anointed him a "Buzzmaker", a tastemaker survey at the time). However, the minute he DJ'd his first "real" party as a Baruch sophomore, he knew deep down that it wasn't just a side thing...in his gut it felt like so much more. After all this time working on projects for other artists on the business side, he realized there was one more artist he wanted to work for -- himself. A few years later he became stable enough to drop everything else to pursue his new dream of being a full-time artist, taking his industry knowledge with him. The common thread here throughout his journey was always music. "Music is that one stable thing in my life, through the ups and downs. It is my source of sanity, music legit keeps me sane." -- and thus DJ SANiTY was born. SANiTY's versatility as a performer shows in his live sets, as he plays in front of crowds at upscale venues and underground venues -- as well as festivals and premier nightclubs for electronic music across the states. His sets are a cross between electronic/house music stylings and open-format multi-genre mixing shenanigans. After a few promo releases as a producer, he made his record label debut as an artist in 2015 with UK-based Krafted Music Group. The label released his 'HOMESICK EP' together w/songwriter Kritty of the band Fine Life. The song received the music video treatment and a remix EP, with remixes by the likes of prominent EDM duo Fight Clvb (Barong Family/Wall Recordings/Dim Mak/Revealed). A few years later, Fight Clvb ended up signing SANiTY's 'ZESSION EP' to their own label, Fight Free Music. Over time he grew love for the 'G-House' sound as a producer, a fusion of his two favorite genres -- house music and hip hop. He signed his first g-house track "Missed Call" with Brazil-based G-Mafia Records. G-Mafia also released his latin-fusion EDM collaboration, "Sextro." Most recently, SANiTY has been working with producers and hip hop artists to curate what he calls ‘East Coast G-House’ – a proper fusion of thumping house grooves and East Coast rap. In addition to the musical soundscapes, the surrounding ambiance and visual aesthetic of #EastCoastGHouse aims to combine prominent elements of both worlds, including everything from shuffling and dance to old-school graffiti art. The first volume of the #ECGH compilation has received press and blog support from EARMILK, The Music Ninja, HipHopHeadQuarters, and DigitalDJPool...it even received a personal shoutout from the West Coast G-House don himself -- Destructo. Volume 2 is coming soon -- stay tuned!
