=========

"To control mind, body and soul through music" is what DJ/producers Peter Bailey & Richie Santana set out to do every time they perform, whether it's solo, or together as seamlessly as if they were one.

Named after their peak-hour Stereo Productions smash of the same name, the duo's Mind Control residency started in late 2006 at world-famous nightclub Pacha New York. The party takes a bit of a unique approach in the club world, letting the two DJs tag-team track-for-track as their set progresses.

"It allows us to really work off each other, and work off the crowd as well," says Bailey. "Sometimes Richie will play a song, and it will remind me or inspire me to throw up a track that I didn't even expect to play. It has a nice spontaneity to it, and the crowd really seems to appreciate that."

But don't think that the sets are disjointed. The crowds at Pacha wouldn't put up with anything but the best. It's almost like, as the name suggests, Bailey and Santana are working from the same brain, or at least the same control center.

But how can that be? The two are far from strangers. They've been one-upping each other since they were teenagers in Staten Island, N.Y., spending afternoons spinning hip-hop records in their rooms. Both had innate talent, and an insatiable hunger to learn more. Soon they were throwing their own parties, and cleaning up on Staten Island's mobile DJ circuit. One night they'd play a Sweet Sixteen; the next, they'd pack a nightclub.

Fast forward a few years, and the hip-hop heads are now deep into house, both spinning and making it. Remixes like Santana's white label version of the Eurhythmics' "Sweet Dreams" and Bailey's remix of Nelly Furtado's "Say it Right" have throbbed at clubs from Montreal to Ibiza. Together and alone, the two have collaborated with names like Victor Calderone, Chus & Ceballos, Carlos Fauvrelle, and DJ Vibe, just to name a few. And they still have a strong creative affiliation with Stereo Productions, one of the world's most renowned dance labels.

This year, they signed with Star 69 to release a mixed compilation based on their infamous Mind Control sets, and will hit the road on an international tour. The goal is to bring the Mind Control experience to every dancefloor across the world, giving all of you out there the chance to "Let The Beats Control Your Soul."
