DJ RAZZO STARTED MUSIC WHEN HE WAS 7 YEARS OLD AND HAS NOW BEEN IN THE GAME FOR QUITE A FEW YEARS! DJ RAZZO ALSO PLAYED THE DRUMS IN HIGH SCHOOL AND GOT DOWN WITH ALOT OF GREAT BANDS LIKE ASI, TORMENTA, UNCLE SALTY, WILD FIRE, MEZZTIZO, EUPHORIA, GERONIMO BLACK AND OTHERS TO INCLUDE SUBSTANCE, PRIME AND VARIOUS LOCALS LIKE WHISKEY SOUR, SOMETHING WICKED, MAX ALLEY, THE POINT AND EVEN OTHERS LIKE MIKE OSBOURNE, HOT PURSUIT, AND MANY MORE!

DJ RAZZO LEARNED TO READ MUSIC IN THE HIGH SCHOOL BAND WHERE HE PLAYED THE TENORS, THE SNARE DRUM AND EVEN LEARNED PERCUSSION INSTRUMENTS. WITH A BEAT FOR MUSIC, THE EAR, AND A RYTHEM TO LOVE, RAZZO ROCKED THE CROWDS AND STADIUMS WITH GREAT ATTACK, DIVERSE BEATS AND ONE OF THE BEST DRUMLINES IN THE CITY.

BY RELEASING GREAT MIXTAPES IN MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL DJ RAZZO WAS ABLE TO CREATE A BUZZ AND GO SICK WITH THE NAME AND REPUTATION OF A PRO! SO DJ RAZZO PARTNERED UP WITH PROMOTER AND CLASSMATE AND LONG TIME FRIEND, FRANKTHE TANKMALDONADO. AS A RESULT DJ RAZZO WAS ABLE TO BLOWTHINGS UP AT THE SCHOOL, LOCAL PARTIES, AND EVEN QUINCES & SCHOOL EVENTS… AS SOME TIME WENT DJ RAZZO QUICKLY GREW SMART AND BEGAN TO INCORPERATE HIS STYLE AND DRUMMING INTO MAKING MUSIC AND TIGHTENING UP ON THE DJING AS A RESULT OF PERSISTANCE TO DO BETTER AND GET BETTER! WITH ALOT ON HIS MIND AND THE LOSS OF HIS SISTER DENISE, DJ RAZZO HAD TO KEEP GOING AND MAKE THINGS HAPPEN. HIS SISTER DIED AT THE AGE OF 30 FROM COMPLICATION OF INJURIES RECIEVED IN A AUTO ACCIDENT. SHE WAS A LONG TIME RESIDENT AND LEAD SINGER OF THE BAND CALLEDEUPHORIA.” SO WITH MORE MOTIVATION TO TAKE HIS MUSIC TO THE NEXT LEVEL, DJ RAZZO WENT FROM THE HIGH SCHOOL PROMS TO NEIGHBORHOOD BLOCK PARTIES AND QUINCEANERAS… DJ RAZZO WAS DJING ALMOST EVERYWHERE HE COULD GET HIS HANDZ ON. SOON ENOUGH HE WENT FROM DJING WEDDINGS AND SMALL HOUSE PARTIE’S TO LANDING SPOTS IN SOME OF THE HIGH END CLUBS IN TEXAS. WITH HELP OF HIS BROTHER ERIK IN DALLAS, DJ RAZZO WAS ABLE TO QUICKLY MOVE UNITS AND MAKE PAYABLE PERFORMANCES ALL THRU THE DALLAS, FT WORTH, AND EVEN THE ABILENE AREAS!!

DJ RAZZO WAS BREAKING NEW JOINTS EVERYWHERE AND SOON BEGAN HITTING THE CLUB SCENE HARD, NIGHT AFTER NIGHT. WITH DJ RAZZO’S INFLUENCES LIKE MARC XX, THE POWER MIXXERS, DJ BAD BOY BILL, DJ TOMMY, FNDB,JUAN ROJAS, EDDIE MIXX, J SMOOTH, JOEY FUNK, RICHARD VISION,DIGITAL VINYL JUNKIES, Q BERT, JAM MASTER J, WYLD STYLE MIXXERS, THE BILINGUAL BANDIT, BOYWONDER PRODUCTIONS, AND MORE DJ RAZZO WAS ABLE TO LEARN A THING OR TWO AND TAKE HIS OWN STYLE TO THE NEXT LEVEL. EACH OF DJ RAZZO’S SETS RANGE FROM A COMBINATION OF HOUSE, DANCE, SOME FUNK AND EVEN SOME ACAPELLAS BY MAINSTREAM DJ’Z, AND HIGH END PRODUCERS LIKE STEVE SMOOTH, JJ FLORES, DJ KUE, AND OTHERS. BIENG A VERSATILE DJ, RAZZO WAS ABLE TO JUMP INTO DOING FREESTYLE, HIP HOP AND LATIN HOUSE, AS WELL AS SOUTH AND EVEN RETRO TO SHOW THE OLD SKOOL BOOGIE COULD STILL ROCK THE SCENE AND EVEN MASSES AT A TIME. AS A RESULT OF MANY HIP HOP DJ’Z AND HIP HOP PERSONALITIES AS WELL AS 80’S DJ’Z THAT PLAY A ROLE IN DJ RAZZO’S INFLUENCE AND MOTIVATIONS AS A DJ, HE WAS ABLE TO GET THIS FAR AND ISNT EVN HALF WAY THERE YET. BUT WITH THE HELP OF FAMILY, LOVED ONES, FRIENDS AND ALL THE SUPPORT, IM SURE HE WILL BE VERY SOON. FREESTYLE WAS ALWAYS A BIG HIGH AND SPINNING NAMES LIKE DJ LAZ, JOHNNY Z, DELINQUENT HABITS AND EVEN LIGHTER SHADE OF BROWN, DIGITAL UNDERGROUND, ROB BASE, EZ ROCK, HEAVY D, LAD, OR EVEN CYPRESS HILL OR KOOL AND THE GANG WAS DOPE WHEN I HAD SEEN DJ RAZZO SPINN FOR THE FIRST TIME… HE IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN ABOUT SPINING RECORDZ AND CAPTIVATING THE LISTENERS THROUGH HIS MIXES AND VERSATILE SETS THAT TAKE ANYONE ON A TRIPWEATHER OLD SKOOL, OR NEW HEAT ROCKIN THE STREETS, DJ RAZZO WAS AND ALWAYS HAS DONE IT RIGHT.

WHEN YOU SEE HIS SHOW YOU ARE GARENTEED TO HEAR THAT ONE SONG ON YOUR MIND, WEATHER YOU WANNA GO BACK, GO TO THE CLUB, CRUIZE, OR JUST ENJOY THE MOMENT.

NOW INTO TURNTABLISM, MIXING, HIGH END BEATS, AND EXTREME CUTTING EDGE, DJ RAZZO IS STILL SHOWING LOVE TO CLASSICAL BATTLE BREAKS AND STREET WAX LIKE JAMES BROWN AND VARIOUS B BOYN’ PIECES…. BACK IN THE DAY DJ RAZZO WAS SPINNING A LOT OF VARIETY STUFF LIKE DISCO, RETRO, ROCK N ROLL, AND EVEN CUMBIAS OR CORRIDAS!!!! AND FROM TIME TO TIME, HE STILL DOESMAKES YOU WANNA WONDER WHAT IS IN HIS CRATE AND WHATS COMING NEXT!!! THIS IS ONE HELL OF SET
