Research of sounds

About
Eric Sharp combines a conscientious mindset with unshakable musical passion. Through his multifaceted career, Sharp has become one of the most accomplished tastemakers on the West Coast. As a DJ, Eric has brought his own style of intelligent, sophisticated, somatic house music comfortably to intimate private parties, club nights, and massive festivals alike. With his record label Rock It Science Laboratories and his personal productions Eric expands his impact beyond simply a purveyor of taste and into a true creator.

Before Eric Sharp found his success in front of the crowd, he spent his hours tirelessly promoting underground warehouse parties. His work as a DJ and producer was ultimately shaped by the myriad sounds he was showcasing to a hungry public, culminating in 2010 with the launch of Rock It Science Laboratories (RIS Labs) - a label and platform for like-minded producers. With tracks ranging from the deep and subtle to the driving and syncopated, Sharp's music has been licensed by the likes of Major League Soccer, Sony, CSI: Miami (CBS Television,) Hitachi, and more.

As electronic music became more widespread in the US, Eric successfully retooled his focus from king of underground warehouse parties to major club residencies and festival performances like Coachella, Outside Lands, Amsterdam Dance Event, Decibel Festival, SXSW, Symbiosis Gathering, Miami Music Week, Dim Mak Studios, Blow Up, etc. Migrating from San Francisco to Los Angeles in late 2012 has proven to be a boon for Sharp, yielding fresh talent to collaborate with and the city enthusiastically embracing his sound. Combining his history of underground house music credibility with all of dance music's mainstream momentum, Eric Sharp is ripe for crossover.

In 2013, Sharp signed to Win Music (home of Duke Dumont, Tiga, and more) and released his EP “Sharp Cuts.” Perfectly on point with the direction he has been heading, this music was not just for the clubs. With vocals from Anna Lunoe, Daisy O’Dell and Siouxsie Black, and a co-production from George Cochrane, the release of these songs cemented Eric as a true artist. He has continued to build upon this foundation with remixes for Atlantic Records' Melanie Martinez, Grammy-winning Jars Of Clay, and the fast growth of the RIS Labs imprint with press across the globe taking note.

2016 has seen Eric ramp up his output of original music significantly, releasing collaborations with the likes of Spencer Ludwig (Capital Cities) and LA's rising star Gavin Turek among others. His productions continue to be widely lauded in press and have thus far broken into the top 30 most popular tracks on Hype Machine.
