This marked the beginning of his career as “DJ El Maestro”. He was inspired by great DJs such as his brother “DJ Gonzo” from Houston, TX and New York’s own DJ Antonio La Conga. He has created a unique and different style when spinning Mambo, a style filled with Sabor and outstanding taste in tunes' selection. Since his start, he has quickly raised popularity among New York Salseros, spinning in local venues such as Mambo Fateegz, Jimmy Anton Social, Club Cache, Club Iguanas, Santo Rico Salsa Social, Rumbamba, Brooklyn Salsa Congress in 2009 and 2010, 10th Annual New York Salsa Congress, Big Apple Salsa Festival and Out of NY in Mayor venues like Houston Salsa Congress, CT SALSA FEST, Peru Salsa Congress and Now Hosting his own event "Salsamania Social" every 2nd & 4th Saturday of the month (visit for more info) .
