DJ OSCAR VELAZQUEZ is easily one of the most influential DJ's on the Mexican house music scene.
He started his career as an amateur disc jockey in 1984. In January 2005, he was invited to become a staff member at a Mexico City radio station named BEAT 100.9 FM. The station was the first in the country to program electronic music exclusively. In this position, Oscar catapulted radio listeners to the dance floor without leaving home. His weekly 2 hour broadcast, club diez cero nueve (club10/09), is dedicated to showing his abilities both as a DJ and as a producer.
In 2008 he won the DJ Concept Award for BEST MEXICAN DJ, and for the past 3 years he has appeared constantly on the Top Ten DJ's list.
The beats which characterize Oscar's style is the result of more than 25 years inside the music industry, using trends from house, progressive house, techno & tribal, he creates a very eclectic mix of rhythms, genres and crossovers which tend to satisfy the most demanding clubbers and allows him to keep doing what he likes most in life: mixing.
Mateo Segade is an internationally touring DJ known for his twisted and stylistically ambitious sets that inspire audiences to dance. As resident DJ for The Boulet Brothers’ weekly queer spectacular, Queen Kong (voted LA WEEKLY’s “Best New Gay Party” in their annual “Best of LA” edition), Mateo has made a name for himself as one of LA’s most recognized DJs for drag queens, non-binary misfits and hirsute menfolk. Since 2015 he’s spun as a banner DJ for Bearracuda Worldwide and GROWLr Roughhouse, playing a series of well-received shows in cities such as Austin, Portland, New Orleans, Dallas, Vancouver, DC, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Toronto, San Francisco and Houston, among others; plus regular rotations in Los Angeles, Long Beach and San Diego. In addition to winning the 2016 San Diego Nicky Award for Outstanding DJ, Mateo has also been included in the short list of LA luminaries twice selected to play DTLA’s PROUD Festival, and will again be spinning across the Caribbean seas for the Bearracuda & Queens Overboard Cruise 2017 with Matt Bearracuda & Peaches Christ.
Taj is a San Diego based DJ/producer that has been setting dancefloors on fire professionally for 15+ years now. He currently maintains firm residencies & frequent guest spots at some of the hottest clubs in SoCal including venues such as; Rich’s (San Diego), The Abbey (L.A.), Mickey’s (L.A.) & Urban Mo’s (San Diego). In addition to his residencies, which keep him very busy, Taj’s hi-energy sets and stage persona often land him guest spots at popular special events such as Hillcrest Cityfest, Hillcrest Mardi Gras & the world-renowned San Diego Pride Zoo Party.
Over the course of his lengthy career, Taj has had the honor of sharing billing at events with some of the biggest DJs in the business, including Dave Aude, Morgan Page, Tony Moran, Guy Scheiman, Moto Blanco and the legendary Junior Vasquez. He’s also shared the stage with performers such as Luciana, Kelis, Wynter Gordon, Jesse McCartney, Inaya Day & Vassy. His sets are best described as a high-octane fusion of progressive house, big-room electro, tribal house & EDM with an affinity for a strong powerhouse vocal. His passion for his craft is best experienced live, where you can watch his enthusiastic performance and interaction with the crowd.
More recently, Taj has navigated his career into music production & has already landed official releases on labels such as Tommy Boy, Citrusonic, ND Music & PopFidelity.
