DJ Stingray at Elsewhere
The Detroit legend’s signature blend of razor-sharp electro and bumping ghettotech, recorded live at the Red Bull Music Festival NYC.
Sherard Ingram, AKA DJ Stingray, has been a strong presence in the world of techno for over 20 years. He grew up in Detroit, and as a school friend and DJ partner of Kenny Dixon Jr. he realized his Urban Tribe project in 1991 with the now classic “Covert Action” — that track was released on Retroactive’s seminal Equinox compilation, a milestone in the city’s rich techno-soul history. A couple of years later, London’s Mo’Wax label released his debut album, The Collapse of Modern Culture, which featured collaborations with Anthony “Shake” Shakir, KDJ and Carl Craig. His most illustrious work might have been as part of Drexciya’s live unit – he was given the name Stingray by Drexciya’s James Stinson. Ingram has since founded Micron Audio Detroit to release the work of fresh, upcoming talent from across the globe. In this session, the Detroit electro legend tears up the floor at the Peak Time afterparty as part of the Red Bull Music Festival in New York.
