DJ J. ANTONIO
“I’m a purveyor of deep, infectious music. And I’m the architect on how your hips will react to that.”
That’s how J. Antonio describes himself as a DJ. Having grown up in a household of avid Latin and Motown music fans, and making rounds with his childhood friends at house parties, J. Antonio molded his personal style based largely on this mixed spectrum of musical influence. In 1996, he entered the fray. Considered a student of the Salsa genre, his flair for Latin music can be measured by his passion and deep respect for it. In 2014, J. Antonio was voted “Favorite NYC Salsa DJ” by Salseek.com, a recognition that he accepted with humble reverence. It was a testament to his commitment to the culture, the history and the music.
J. Antonio’s repertoire is not limited to Latin music. From R&B to Top 40, Hip Hop, Dance, Jazz, Motown, House, Freestyle, Club Classics, Disco, Latin Pop, 60's, 70's and 80's Rock and Pop, World Music (Reggae, Soca, Samba, Cumbia etc.), Lounge Beats and many more, J. Antonio can be as diverse as the dance floor dictates.
Today, this translates into music that invigorates the crowd with unapologetic verve, backed by his energetic personality and charisma.
Every occasion is uniquely special, and each is given the right music treatment to appease different tastes and to inspire an enthusiastic dancing crowd.
