RotPG – DJ Mojo (06/15/2012)
“Mojo first made an appearance on Riders of the Plastic Groove all the way back in 1993.
With a diverse taste in music, Mojo is just as comfortable spinning deep house as he is drum & bass, breaks or downtempo. A veteran of the Los Angeles electronic music scene, Mojo got his start back in 1992, at the height of the techno explosion, spinning at the legendary What? Afterhours. Shortly thereafter, he was invited to join the Insomniac roster playing at the Friday weekly as well as some of Insomniac’s first massives including Organic ’96 and the first two Nocturnal Wonderland events.
Known for its friendly and positive vibe, F.A.M.I.L.Y. started in 1994 and Mojo was one of the original residents, serving up a blend of breaks, progressive house and the occasional trip hop set. Performances at this well-loved monthly paved the way for steady bookings throughout the 90s, in Southern California and beyond.
A self-imposed hiatus in 2000 allowed Mojo to focus on furthering his education as well as to begin exploring his life-long ambition of music production. With several remixes and original releases out on Cold Busted and Journees Music, Mojo is pursuing the production side full throttle. And while production and remixing absorbs most of his musical focus, dropping eclectic mixes is still very much on the agenda.”
