Biography

DJ Antares

Born in La Paz, Baja California Sur Mexico, December 22nd 1978. Antares is his artistic and original given name by his parents. The definition is quite interesting and original by saying that ANTARES is the name given to the brightest star in the constellation Scorpius. It is a binary star of which the main component is a red supergiant, although he’s still a Capricorn by birth.

He lives in Cabo San Lucas the Los Cabos area also known by many visitors as Lands End by it’s beautiful landmark and world known for the arch rock formation dividing the sea of Cortez and the Ocean Pacific.

His interest and involvement in the Dj business started way back from High school, then wasn’t aware to become of the most popular students around, doing what he like the most, making people dance. At that time(91’-96’) his interest where into different moving music tastes from Rock n’ Roll, Grunge, Funk, Heavy Metal, Pop, Rap, and of course HOUSE MUSIC which is his favorite now.

Curious about how music was made, he didn’t hesitate and learned how to play drums, then soon join a rock band, which lasted a few years.

Antares already known as a good and versatile Dj in Los Cabos, moved to La Paz to finish junior college he was still able to attend gigs in that area and return home to Cabo on the weekends.

Next stop was to Mexico city to continue with University studies getting his degree in International Business and Customs. Throughout his studies he practiced as a musician(guitar, keyboard and midi, musician engineer) and of course still Djing gigs throughout the year.

He also took several studies as a musician while doing Djing gigs all time with his first own set of Pioneer mixer and cd players attending privates events, social, venues in the biggest city in the world. While in Mexico City he saw the big bands such Rolling Stones, Kiss and U2 and DJ performances such as Sasha, Paul Oakenfold, Digweed, etc.

Once again at that time got an invitation to start a rock n roll band playing the keyboard, electric guitar and secondary vocals, everything was running smooth until black cold jealousy between band members got into a sad separation. Since then he always wanted go solo either as a musician or DJ.

His next move was to Chicago, IL and saw The House Music scene and it was great until the awful and terrible September 11 attacks, so had to come back to Cabo to start his successful Mobile DJ business.

While working at an Import Export Company, Antares started buying sound equipment when he came back home and started a dj company for all kinds of events named systemasoundcontrol.com were his in charge of two great Dj?s and providing service and equipment with the newest technology available on the market, his inventory allows him to put on to four gigs a day!

House Music was always his favorite style from the start, for some time switched to trance music in 1995, but, came back to love House, Techouse and Progressive House.

2005 was a good year for Antares where he had many gigs around Mexico such as in Guadalajara, Tijuana, Puerto Vallarta, Sonora, La Paz, Cabo, Mexico city, and being in greats events Internationally in San Francisco, Nevada and Miami at the Winter Music Conferences and recently playing in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and on Ipanema Beach.
