I´ve loved music my whole life, and began collecting music as a DJ in 2000. Since that time, my tastes have expanded far beyond the Hip-Hop I started with to encompass many styles. I have trouble describing what ¨style¨ of music I play, though much of it is linked together by the common thread of the breakbeat and TROPICAL SOUNDS. Being Soul, Reggae, Hip-Hop, Brazilian Samba & Baile Funk & Batacuda, Cumbia, Salsa, Champeta, Downtempo, Afrobeat, a scattering of housey beats and a mountain of Breaks, mashups and re-edits. I have a particular love for the Latin music I play, infused by a year living in Central America and the vibrant culture that I see around me in Los Angeles every day.

I love sharing music with people, whether it allows them boogie or just enjoy a glass of wine.

I´m currently available to DJ in Los Angeles (and anywhere else with the right nudging). Contact me at the contact link above.
