Driven by his passion for music, creativity, and business, Ed Unger has built his career on bringing people together through a shared love of music. It all began with a saxophone, an acoustic guitar and a life changing trip to Australia at age 16 which resulted in writing one of his first songs. His influences ranged from obscure local rock, punk, industrial, techno, house and attending raves which opened his eyes to electronic music.
Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, Ed relocated to Georgia and studied all aspects of music which led to running a recording studio in Atlanta. Shortly after, he hosted free songwriting workshops, offered in studio classroom style training and partnered with a friend to create music production sound libraries for sale online. A year later he quit his day job and entered the world of eCommerce business and SEO. The increased demand and popularity of the training grew into the Computer Music Production School.
With the success of the online music school and eCommerce business, Ed began producing tracks and remixes while performing around Atlanta. After winning dance remix contests with tracks for Conjure One, Sarah McLachlan, Paul Schwartz and NIN, a door opened to look at properties in Miami after a trip to the Winter Music Conference. Three months later he relocated to South Florida.
Ed began working out of Miami with clients based in New York, California, Atlanta, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, France, London, China, Ghana, Germany, Bermuda, Norway, Japan and Taiwan. Inspired by the European sound after traveling through London, Amsterdam, Paris and speaking as a panelist at the Winter Music Conference in Miami, he began experimenting with all types of house music collaborations. At that time Ed began djing around Miami with dj gear received from winning a remix contest. Each week, calls and email invites kept pouring in to dj private parties and events. Additionally, which led to creating the Cup of Inspiration Podcast and DJ live performances with beats, vocals and guitar with additional violin, flute, harmonica, saxophone and percussion artists.
Currently, Ed curates professional events around South Florida appealing to a wide array of audiences by creating uplifting tracks with influence from house, progressive and techno.
