At sixteen years old, Miami native DJ Ralph Falcon had already identified himself as an emerging house artist, quickly earning a record deal with Atlantic in the mid-Nineties. Influences such as New York DJs Timmy Regisford, Merlin Bobb, and Bobby Konders led to Falcon's dance-pop style, which grew increasingly popular as he began releasing singles like "Mission Control Outta Limits" and remixing tracks by the Pet Shop Boys, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, and Depeche Mode. In 1996 Falcon wrote "Funky Green Dogs Fired Up," which quickly became number one on Billboard's dance chart. Currently the monthly resident DJ at crobar, Falcon continues to perform in the area and will do so this weekend alongside DJ Stryke. Jake Nelson
