Baltimoroder was born out of necessity.

The story begins in Illinois, where Baltimoroder (aka Erik Pearson) abused cheap Yamaha keytars and Fisher-Price turntables. In high school, punk shows, record stores and raw performance spaces filled his time. On to college, Los Angeles and the mighty KXLU radio station, where he absorbed avant-garde sounds, ambient music and experimental artists.

The turning point came after a cross-country trek to Boston and a low-key house party. He took the decks, mixing tracks he had never heard into a swell that kick-started a dance floor. From that night on, the floor never stopped growing. DJing to dance fiends night after night is his passion—whether thugged-out Baltimore music or the retro-sexual glam of Giorgio Moroder. Behold Baltimoroder. New residencies started popping up in all different styles, all the way from Balearic dinner music to Dancehall/Hip-Hop to Techno and Electro. Baltimoroder mixes aggressively and flawlessly in any genre put in his path. It was a chance meeting with David Day; a local promoter and European techno aficionado that took him from the bedrooms to the clubs. Their natural talents were a perfect match; Erik the technical party-rocker and Dave the consummate promoter. In search of greater platform for artists and musicians, they opened the art/event space sQuareOne in the Boston Fort Point district showcasing everything from 2d painting, photography, and film/video to music production, live performance, and some amazing dance parties.
