RotPG – Phillip Cejudo (02/25/2011)

In Phillip Cejudo’s own words:
When I was ten years old my interest in House Music began because it was one of few options for an inner city youth in the high crime Los Angeles of the 1990’s. By the time I was 11, DJ AJ MORA invited me into the music scene by introducing me to the world of DJing. He allowed me to watch him practice mixing in the basement and let me accompany him to local club gigs and at 12, I got my first DJ system on layaway from a local music shop. This is where my journey began.

As a young DJ and high school student I was more interest in graffiti art, sketching classes and AJ’s home studio than I was in my formal education. In 1998 I was 15 years old and the youngest among the DJs in the Los Angeles underground music scene. By 2002 I played gigs regularly in and around Los Angeles as well as an annual music festival south of Chicago, IL.

In 2005 I began a music focused event called Sunday School which was held in my downtown Los Angles loft every week. A self-refurbished sound system was completed in order to optimize sound quality for the space. Sunday School lasted until the fall of 2006 because it quickly drew more crowds than space allowed.

Taking a year to build my hand crafted speakers I finally unveiled them at the monthly event, Confidential House Culture. Held in the basement of a downtown Los Angeles landmark, Confidential has grown exponentially since the first event and continues to draw crows who are there for one purpose: dancing to the rhythms of the soul.
