Grim Avenue aka DJ Rob DeSisto
Grim Avenue is the alias for producer, musician, and DJ Rob DeSisto. Rob fell in love with dance music as a teenager in New England warehouses at the turn of the century and cut his teeth at WERS on the station’s much beloved electronic show “Revolutions”. Within a few years he was playing gigs throughout Boston, Providence and beyond as well as releasing his first experimental electronica singles with collaborator Dr. Nigel of Psylab.
Upon relocating to his spiritual home of San Diego, Rob started OMFG Zombies with vocalists Laura Elizabeth and Darius Artiola. Backed by Rob’s production and laptop sets, the trio released a series of EPs and singles on Mojear and Disco Rebels Recordings and delighted audiences with their energetic and cheeky performances. In 2014, Rob started his Grim Avenue project to return to the more visceral, emotional music that has always been his heart song. His melodic, genre-bending tracks have since found a home on Emerald and Doreen Records.
