4 To The Floor began in the clubs of East London from a desire to connect the dots throughout the history of dance music.
Appealing to versatile and open-minded dance floors their sound is a unique blend of 4/4 beats from house, techno, disco, garage, disco to jazz and everything that makes sense in the mix.
Eddieboi, Kengo, djsoulprovyder and Jay Carder hailing with roots in South Africa, Japan, Jamaica and London respectively treat 4 To The Floor as a forum for world music, whether it’s German techno, Angolan kuduro, Thai disco or Chicago house.
Eddieboi hails from South Africa, the home of African House music which inspired the resurgence of global house music with producers such as Black Coffee and Black Motion. Currently residing in Stockholm where he’s working to build on the deep African house scene, he is a Software engineer by day, a football player and coach on the weekends and enjoys working socially with Junior Youth enhancing their self expression also in his spare time.
Kengo began his love affair with music listening to rock, punk and hip hop in the 90s and anything that was loud, heavy and anti-establishment. Drum breaks became an obsession once he found b-boying and with the discovery of house dance in 2004, also house music. He is currently a member of the Cuban Brothers touring worldwide. Hobbies include learning languages, rollerskating, ice skating and massaging.
Djsoulprovyder has been a record collector and DJ since 1991. He originally started off playing 70s soul, funk, jazz and rare groove records. With a residency in Ibiza and having played across the globe, his sets include a selection of past and present, journeying from his disco, afro, latin, jazz, funk roots to a deeper electronic tech house sound. He is a partner in flyer distribution service SoulPack which is dedicated to the world-soul-jazz-afro-latin-house and electronica scenes distributed at bars, clubs and live music venues across London. He also has an artist liaison transportation service looking after international DJs and artists.
London born-and-bred, Jay Carder carved her way onto the decks via the UK Garage scene, and after joining 4 To The Floor in 2017 finds herself championing deep, ancestral grooves in sets that aim to release the soul and engage the spirit. Her selections are peppered with African grooves and infused with 2-step, broken beat and globally-inspired house rhythms.
