He resides and maintains his label, modular moods, within the auditory heart of Brooklyn. "One of New York's hottest Jewish musicians" - 104.4 FM (London) "DJ Handler's music defies stereotypes by frequently including collaborations with non-electronic musicians, creating fusions between different art forms and, occasionally, cultural communities. His samples include Ashkenazic cantorial music, traditional Yemenite melodies and hip hop, and he frequently plays keyboards and guitars alongside his traditional DJ decks." - Jay Michaelson, The Forward "Top Hundred Heeb" - Heeb Magazine www.modularmoods.com
