DJ Carlos became a DJ, following in his father and uncle’s footsteps. He visited one of their parties as a 5 year old kid and knew he wanted to be a DJ after seeing all the happy faces on the audience. He started doing all kinds of DJ jobs growing up and in 1992, Joel from “A Rave Called Sharon”, found him at a Latin club where he was working and invited him to play at their next party. Since that day DJ Carlos played at every weekend rave in San Francisco. In 1993, DJ Carlos became a Resident at “Recycle” on Wednesdays and “Universal Groove” on Thursdays, while still playing Saturday raves and Sunday “Spundays”.
In 1994, DJ Carlos started his own party with DJ Dutch and DJ Christoff, “CDCSoundsystem” and still playing raves on the weekends. He then started flying to Denver to play at the “Come Together” Party with DJ Dan, DJ Hippy, DJ Halo, DJ Terry Mullan, and many others. In 1995, a new party was started called “Area 51” and Josh Wink headlined one of them. DJ Carlos played with DJ Tony, DJ Jeno, DJ Astralmatrixx and DJ Carlos started flying out to Seattle, Portland, New York, Cleveland, and every major city in Ohio, Chicago,and the whole Midwest.
In 1996, DJ Carlos started a new party called “LOVE” with a new company called the SF House Collective and played with Dubtribe and an endless list of DJs. He played a family reunion in the Midwest, and in New York at “Twilo” and with Phato Productions. In 1998, DJ Carlos played at “Nikita” with DJ Sasha.
