DJ José Ray
That's right, in addition to painting walls and filling up sketchbooks left and right- I also spend a lot of my time DJing.
I would like to think, and hopefully the testimonials will prove, that I'm not your standard DJ. Having a background as a musician and collecting records since the early 90s- I take pride in understanding and appreciating music from a wide spectrum of tastes and influences.
The main thread through my choices as a DJ is the music has to have Soul and a Groove. If that's there then I can weave all kinds of music from all over the world together. Some of my favorite genres to spin are Funk, Soul, 80s electro pop, 90s R&B, Early Hip Hop, Indie Dance, Latin (especially Cumbia!), AfroBeat, - but I also enjoy all kinds of other stuff like Classic Punk, Golden Era Rock & Roll, 70s Rock, 80s Metal, and the list goes on and on, but I think you get the picture.
This is a trailer for the Bootlegger's Boogie event that I helped produce and DJ.
Here are some of the great folks I've worked with.
