DJ Hyperactive returned to Chicago 2013 to reconnect with his family and musical roots. His story continues with more gigs and more studio productions, with the difference being the experience and perspective that only a true veteran can possess.

Some of Victor’s early dance influences were genres such as Latin and Acid House, Hip-Hop, R ’n’ B, World Beat music and such unlikely sounds as Classical and Classic Rock. During the last two and one-half years, Vega has honed his craft of sculpting the sounds of Deep, Tech House, keeping it dirty and juicy so that it makes you want to freaky deaky.

In the coming years, Victor will be focusing further on music production as an SAE graduate in live sound and design to continuing his quest for excellence in event-production for the ever-demanding public. Meanwhile, Vega hasn’t lost sight of the point of all this which is to bring people together to share common interests and participate in the evolution of the culture and, most importantly, shake thy butt.
