Hi Jose! Where are your roots?
Born In LA with Hispanic blood.
How did you end up on Mad Decent / Party Like US?
I started sending my demo’s over to Diplo & AC Slater, like remixes etc. They were the only first contacts I had really. And fortunately they dig my stuff, so I stayed with my main labels for projects I did.
Moombahton or Trap?
If you could remix one song of John Lennon, what would it be?
Whatever gets you through the night.
What’s your favorite Jazz tune?
Tenacious D – JAZZ.
What would you do if you have to produce music without having energy drinks next to you?
Nothing would get accomplished. I think energy drinks help my A.D.D stay in focus.
Describe the feeling you had when you heard Kissy Sell Out playing your tracks on BBC Radio One.
It was surreal. He first played my collab w/ Mr.Vega.. I remember someone calling me telling me he played it.
I called vega.. It was like 3AM his time.. Lol, I talked about it for weeks.
What would you do to Valentino Khan if you were a girl?
Pet his mustache.
What’s your favorite soccer team?
Where do you usually get your vocal samples from?
Anywhere. Whatever I hear I like I’ll rip it. Youtube or other songs.
I’m a network thief.
What can we expect from your set during Dim Mak Sundays on February 17th?
Great vibes, great tunes and lots of sweat. And if no one is dancing I’ll get buck naked to get the crowd wild… Wait, maybe thats a bad idea.
Last week we brought our first installment of, “A Night In Review” this week we’re bringing you the second installment of the series covering our #DimMakGrammySunday at Drai’s. Here you’ll find in depth details of the night including details of Salva and Steve Aoki’s set. You can also check out upcoming events at Dim Mak.
“As you know, the Grammy Awards happened on Sunday, and none other than bossman himself, Steve Aoki, was nominated for an award. The fact that there are now multiple electronic categories at the Grammys is a testament to how far the genre has come. Needless to say, at the Dim Mak after-party, everyone was in a fantastic mood and ready to celebrate electronic music and it’s ever evolving forms, with sets from DJ Metric, Fashen, DJ Fresh Direct, Salva, Steve Aoki, and Deorro.
Every surface of Drai’s, from floors, to tables, to the spaces in between, were covered with people getting down and having a good time. When Salva took over the decks, he was greeted by an ever-eager audience that was ready to be bass blown away by some hardcore Trap music, and they were not disappointed. Salva started off with “City Star” by Rusty and then dropped into “Purple Swag” by A$AP Rocky. But the highlight of the set had to be when Salva went old school and mixed Missy Elliot’s classic “Get Your Freak On” with the new instant classic, by Kanye West, “Mercy,” only to launch right back in time when he played “Face Down Ass Up” by 2 Live Crew and “What’s Your Fantasy,” by Ludacris. Salva gave a nod to Trap music when he played a little RL Grime and the crowd fed off his energy and the table-shaking bass that blasted out of the speakers. Salva ended his set with crowd pleasers “All Gold Everything” by 2 Chainz, and “Fucking Problem” by A$AP Rocky. He saved the best for last and dropped Drake’s new song “Started from the Bottom” as confetti shot all around the club. It was a great moment and totally epitomized the awesomeness that was the vibe in Drai’s.
Then, as the confetti was still falling from the sky, Steve Aoki stepped up to the table, and the crowd of people that had gathered around the dance floor went nuts, not to mention everyone else in the club filing in from all areas, inside and out, to see what was up. His first song was “Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia ft. John Martin and being one to never disappoint, he brought up singer John Martin himself to give a live rendition of the vocals. Then, Steve dove forward into some new songs of his own. The crowd definitely enjoyed getting a preview of what was to come and were rewarded with some Aoki classics like “Ladi Dadi” the Tommy Trash remix, as well as Turbulence, and of course, Pursuit of Happiness. He also dropped the vocal mix of “No Beef” which was a big hit with everyone inside. The fun really started when Borgore popped out of nowhere and stepped up to the decks while Aoki played his song “Decisions.” Before he stepped off the stage, Aoki made a point to tell everyone around to stick around for up-and-coming DJ Deorro who threw down some late night dirty dutch style music.
It was a ridiculous night to say the least, and the energy in the club reverberated out onto the streets as Deorro’s set ended and the lights came on. Those in attendance also included DJ Fresh Direct, Miguel, Skrillex, Carnage, John Martin, and Joachim Garraud. It was a night that proved how epic electronic dance music can be, and how it can bring people from all over the place together who are just searching for some good music and a damn good time.” – Jenna Browning

We recently welcomed RL Grime to Dim Mak Sunday’s not too long. If you’re not too familiar with the name, you may have heard his popular remix with Salva of Kanye West’s, Mercy circulating throughout the air waves this past summer. Since his dive into the trap scene RL Grime, has made a huge splash in the genre with a handful of remixes and productions. To say the least, he put on an incredible sold out show at Drai’s in September, filling the club with great vibes and music. Check out our latest video installment featuring RL Grime’s big night.
