DJ Jose Zaragoza
DJ Jose Zaragoza has been spinning for over 18 years, and has grown to become a force in the worldwide underground house music community and continues to prove himself as someone who is dedicated to pushing electronic music forward. Jose’s style is best described as energetic and with a combination of up-tempo disco, filter funky house, soulful Latin flavored house and a sprinkle of techno added in for good measure. His DJing and promotion has earned him booking around the world, as well as a monthly residency at SmartBar in his hometown of Chicago. Jose has traveled the globe playing across the U.S.A. , Canada (Vancouver, Toronto , London, St. Catherine’s, Ottawa , Hamilton, Hull, Quebec City, Fredericton, St. John, Halifax), Europe (England, Germany, Belgium, France, Spain, Switzerland), Austria (Melbourne), and U.A.E. (Dubai).
It wasn’t until winning Mixer Magazine’s Mix Tape Contest in 2000, that Jose finally had a chance to play to people around the globe. Since winning this contest Jose’s mixes have been reviewed well and has appeared in Canada’s (Klublife Magazine, Tribe, Nocturnal, Ottawa Xpress, The Coast Newspaper), Europe (M8, International DJ, Muzik Magazine), and finally U.S.A (Mixer, BPM, URB, 5magazine, Red Eye).
