Peter Canellis

CEO, Music Creator

I found that what Peter ultimately gives us is not just another podcast to subscribe to, or more great music to listen to… instead, I found what he gives us searchers is actually an experiential place to go. And, the cool thing about what he does and the way he does it is, you get to pick where you want it to take you. Depending on the life activities you are into, the choice of places is up to you and they are limitless. The more you find out about the guy and the more you get into his mixes and the depth and quality of his sounds, the more you realize his genius goes way beyond just djing. You discover he’s actually more of a celestial transporter of some kind.” Itune Podcast Review by Hot Zone Searcher .


Under the moniker ‘’DJ St. Peter’’, Canellis was an ever-present and influential club force on the New York and Miami club scene in the 90’s and early 2000′s. He spun at the leading bars and clubs such as Liquid, Warsaw, Twist, Shadow Lounge, Tunnel, LimeLight, Palladium, Glam Slam, Salvation, Crobar, Score, Bed, Amnesia, Winter Party Pool Party 1st annual, New Orleans Halloween Moondance 1999, Champs Tea Dance, Tom of Finland Parties, Tantra Lounge, Snowball…..

In 2002 Canellis resigned from the music scene due to personal reasons. Nine years later, after years of soul searching, Canellis has returned to the decks, capturing the essence of his music, engulfing his listeners and delivering multi-layered aural, euphoric, energetic, sexy, magical, hypnotic, trippy, and introspective sojourns.

Canellis, also referred to as The Storyteller or Transporter, magically creates mystical musical soundscapes, thus creating the illusion of “traveling without moving”.  From a New York City dark and sexy lounge, to a Las Vegas after-hours crazy fest, to a Los Angeles mega club, to a summer afternoon dance on the Aegean Cliffs, all the way to a small hip coffee shop, you will be transported wherever you imagination and the music takes you.

The belief there is a time and place for each song, thus creating the perfect journey has always been a Canellis trademark. Canellis gives you the option of following his story or letting you visualize your own,  providing his audience with a soundtrack which moves you along his path.  “A musical journey is like creating a Rembrandt. It takes thought, inspiration, passion, desire, experiences, and an understanding of LIFE as it is and where you would like it to be. I don’t do this because it is a job, I do this because I want the audience to feel my heart and soul through music”

Canellis’ utilizes a wide range of genres, ranging from progressive trance, balearic tribal, progressive house, electro, chill, ambient, and trip hop while always searching, and sometimes creating, unique and profound sounds and grooves as he is considered a leader in the frontier. Canellis delivers a depth of electronica that is sophisticated, intelligent and elegant, while manifesting  a widespread appeal to a broad spectrum of devotees.

Canellis’ current sound is fancying a global audience, thanks in large part to his world wide renowned internet podcast, Running To The Beat.
