RotPG – John Acosta 02/07/2014


Born December 9th 1984. in Santa Ana California, John Acosta was introduced to music at a young age by his parents, and their R&B and old school funk record collection. Moving up through the local DJ ranks during his early twenties John earned residencies at local bars and eventually began spinning the bar and club scene in his area. Though he may call Southern California home his sound comes straight out of Chicago with major influences Mark Farina and Derrick Carter. He is also influenced by his love for hip-hop, like Tribe Called Quest, Del the Funky Homosapien, 9th Wonder and People Under the Stairs, who often make their way into his sets in which he creates a diverse sound with a down tempo groove that will keep the floor dancing all night long. John has been dabbling in the production game as of late, with tracks released on world re owned house labels such as Tequila Trax, Rude Fish Records, Twins Mansion, Treasured Grooves and FlossHatt Digital.
