His new single “Trio” with Matisse & Sadko is due out shortly and his remix of Dirty South’s “Walking Alone” is already rocking dancefloors (listen on Soundcloud).
Cedric Gervais has reigned supreme over the Miami dance scene for years but still finds time to take his talents to the studio, with production credits that include working with Lenny Kravitz, Deep Dish and Steve Lawler, just to name a few. His first single with Ultra Records, “Burning,” was a great success on both the charts and the underground circuit, and his debut album, ‘The Experiment,’ featured the massive hit, “Spirit in My Life.” This month he releases a new single, Cedric Gervais & CID “Playa” on Ultra. He brings his new Sh!t Show residency to Marquee in March. Watch his 2012 tour trailer on YouTube.
