Underground Revival is an entity founded in the truest traditions of Dance Music from yesterday, today and the future. DJ Josh Thomas's background includes his youthful immersion in music of the Caribbean, and extensive experience watching classics being built from the ground up. DJ Kwab has cultivated a lifelong study of African Dance and music, and has a deeply rooted understanding of Jazz and Soca, among other styles. Together, this unique tandem of DJ’s possess a fused playing style and talent for production that ranges from the international underground to the global mainstream.
As the name implies, Underground Revival was born of an overwhelming call to help return dance music and the New York club scene to its roots: the broad spectrum of underground dance music – including Afrobeat?, Jazz / Nu-Jazz?, and, other styles – all being heard under the same roof in one night.
Josh and Kwab have been able to expand their quest for revival beyond the trappings of their local scene.
