Jo Cruz


British and Colombian Dj raised in London – Johan Cruz, AKA Dj Jo Cruz, started his musical journey, when his Uncle purchased his first LP player and he had a combination of Salsa, POP and reggae music records from superstars such as Bob Marley, Hector Lavoe from Puerto Rico
& Michael Jackson. Johan started to play and scratch his uncle's records without him knowing. It was at this moment that Dj Jo Cruz knew he wanted to be part of 'The Scene' at a young age of 10.
He first became interested in Electronic and House music in 2001, while in the clubbing scene. In 2006, his Mum bought him his first set PC controller deck. By the age of 25, he knew which type of music he was into;House Music, but was still influenced by his Latin side which is Salsa, Merengue and Reggaeton.Disco House, Deep House, Deep Techno, Latin House and Afrohouse/Afrotech are just some of the music he has played on his sets.
Johan looks up to many Djs around the world such as Solomon, Black Coffee, Sam Divine, Todd Terry, but just to name a few and he also loves the current House Music from South Africa. He is always looking to improve his skills on the decks and plays the hottest tracks for the public. Collaborations have been made with teams in the UK, Colombia and South Africa to promote his DJ skills. He also played in various festivals, clubs and bars in London such as the Ministry of Sound, Cafe Mambo Ibiza, Egg Kings Cross and many more. This year he will travel to Amsterdam and Ibiza to tour. His goal is to play at more worldwide venues and currently producing his own music!
