With his recent remix of Kaskade’s ‘Dynasty’ landing safely in the hands of Ryan himself, Glow resident Roberto Gonzalez is steadily climbing the ladder to fame well beyond our DC EDM community. Roberto’s music library is disgustingly huge and well equipped for throwing an amazing party. His knowledge of the DC crowd and what we like is unparalleled.
Jon Deke bangs out every time he spins. His ability to evenly flow from disco-influenced house to thumping electro is a testament to his prowess as a DJ. His opening sets for artists like Calvin Harris, JFK and Don Diablo prove that he can get the crowd moving with ease and keep them moving with every track he spins.
Roberto started spinning as a hobby that was quickly turned into something that he loves. He has had a life long love of all types of music, but his true love is in Electronic music. His interest was first sparked by attending club events, especially GLOW, introducing him to all the different forms of Electronic dance. Through the years he has experimented with all styles, until he found his true passion…Progressive/Trance.In 2003, he was granted his big break into the local DC scene, by holding down a residency for CitySonic’s monthly parties located in the Attic at HOME nightclub (now called ULTRA BAR). In 2004, he began to create his own productions with the help of his friend Eric Jao (DJ Enferno). Since then Roberto has been working along side Pete Moutso, Music Director and DJ of GLOW (www.clubglow.com) for the past Five years. Pete has been a big help in mentoring Roberto and has benefited a great deal, which shows in his DJ sets. In 2007, Roberto made a series of mixes called Images, which help spread his name within DC. The series help people get an idea of what they can expect from Roberto’s dj sets. Now Roberto has established himself as one of the guys to watch out for within the local scene of DC. Currently he is working a productions and collaborating along with his brother Javier and Casey Keyworth (Breakfast) of Flashover Recordings on new productions. The one thing he always shoots for is to be able to share great music and vibe at any of his shows with the crowd.
