The one constant throughout the life of Tanner Ross is music, since being raised in New Jersey in a family environment heavily influenced by music new and old, to his current status as a passionate and driven DJ and producer who is also known as T-Rex or Prince Of E-funkdom.
In High School he found himself in numerous bands playing everything from funk to punk but it was after progressing to study synthesizers and production at Boston’s renowned Berklee College Of Music that things fell into place. Captivated by underground electronic music, his own productions were soon being released on labels such as Dirty Bird, Freerange, Airdrop and Culprit and this naturally led him into DJing, where he met now regular collaborators Sergio Santos and Soul Clap, and his journey became clear.
Various music projects saw the fresh out of college Tanner set out on a musical mission across the States and beyond, his talents leading him to such meccas of dance music as London’s Fabric and Berlin’s Watergate. With his eyes wide open and finger on the pulse he was soon forming part of Boston supergroup SECT, alongside Soul Clap and Sergio Santos of course. Not only is the SECT album a near and anticipated prospect, Tanner’s solo career is taking off with releases due in early 2011 on !K7 and No 19, and the biggest coup of them all, a solo album is in the works, to be released later this year on none other than Wolf + Lamb.
It’s quite clear Tanner’s music constant is set to continue much further…
