mybeatFix met Jonathan Lopez through Maya Jane Coles – well, sort of. Before Maya had ever played a date in the U.S., and before anyone imagined she would make it to Resident Advisor’s Top 100 DJs list of 2011, two MJC lovers in the U.S. hashtagged her name on Twitter – Jonathan Lopez and mybeatFix editor Gaby Izarra (me). From there, it only took a few simple clicks to see that this kid knows his music. We released one of his mixes on mybeatFix, and almost two years later, we’re naming him a resident. The best part? He’s from Brownsville, Texas.
We won’t mention his real age, but let’s just say Lopez is way ahead of the game when it comes to quality music. He’s been mixing for the last five years, and has already played opening sets for artists like Justin Martin, Worthy, Subb-An, Luca Bacchetti, Jozif, Gina Turner and more. He’s a resident for Elite Events, the unprecedented crew of McAllen, Texas, to first bring an underground scene to the area. Now, he’s officially a resident for mybeatFix too.
With all that said, we’re excited to bring you Jonathan Lopez’s opening mix for Luca Bacchetti at Thirsty Monkey in McAllen, Texas.
