Having been involved in the Entertainment industry from an early age, Farib Alvarez is well versed in a variety of areas that range from behind the scenes to performing on stage. As a New York City native Alvarez began his dance career at the age of eight as a b-boy in the early 1980’s, battling in local arenas and street fair competitions in various crews. This early experience led to working with a few of the Dynamic Breakers to hone his skill set, develop and take lead of the Baby Dynamic Crew. Coming from the dance music/house scene, exposed to the birth of Freestyle, Alvarez eventually took his dancing experience to choreograph and star as lead dancer for a college production: "Under 18 Not Admitted" dance show (Ft. Lauderdale, FL), a spin off show from the popular Dance Party USA.

After completing his education, Farib returned to NYC in 1991 and partnered up with JuanKato (Roc&Kato) to create the 'in-house' art department for Digital Dungeon Records/Blade to the Rhythm Productions. This grew into a multi label multi distribution company that allowed him to evolve into becoming the Art Director/satellite office for the Chicago based MusicPlant Group / Vinyl Soul (orig. Vibe Music). With a career that spans over 25 years, Farib combines his passion for music and dance with a talent that is evidenced in his graphic skills & marketing for various artists and labels throughout the industry including his current art direction for Todd Terry (InHouse Records) whom he’s been with since the Freeze Records days as an example of his consistency and longevity in the business.

As part of the ‘house’ music scene since the late 1980’s he has performed as a backup/stage dancer, choreographed routines for artists and dance companies, held positions in A&R, managing and advising artists, djs and remixers in the studio during production and on tour. Mastering his DJ skills with a diverse catalog that ranges from Disco, Freestyle, Dance & New Wave/Alternative to the newest releases and remixes from legendary producers has led Farib to brand his distinctive style as Selek'd House Grüves.

His artistic influence within the House community reaches well behind the dance floor and the decks as he delves into production to complete the journey started being around the pioneers of the NYC House, Freestyle and Latin house music culture.

With current monthly residencies at Flo Lounge, KHAOS and Selek'd Grüves Brunch and Meridan 23,  with previous appearances at 'I'll House You w/ Oscar P & friends' at Bar13 ­and special guest appearances at Kimberly Hotel Rooftop, Campeón NYC,
