The most famous DJ in the world, NYC-based Junior Vasquez, has become a legend in his own time. When the Paradise Garage and The Saint both closed in the late 80s, Junior emerged as the singularly most admired and followed DJ in NYC and later, the world.
He co-founded the underground Bassline club and the legendary Sound Factory and later transported his massive following to legendary club world venues such as the Tunnel, Arena @ Palladium, Twilo, and most recently, Earth (at Exit). No other DJ in the world has held the attention of such a demanding, musically savvy dance floor for over a decade. From his newly self-designed $8 million dollar private DJ booth at Exit, each week, Junior weaves new music (fresh out of the studio where he spends his weekdays) with classics from his 300,000+ record collection. Due to his demanding fans, it is not unusual for Junior to get inspired and keep these magical sets pumping for well over 12 hours.
Over the past two decades, Junior has not only invented many new techniques for manipulating music, but he has perfected several old ones. In addition, to this, he has written, produced, and remixed songs for countless recording artists that include Madonna, Whitney Houston, Cher, Prince, Donna Summer, Diana Ross, Michael & Janet Jackson, Cyndi Lauper, John Mellencamp, k.d. lang, Pet Shop Boys, Elton John, Dolly Parton, Luther Vandross, and the Beatles.
Believe it or not, the new millennium has proven to be the busiest time of his career with 99 remixes in 2000, which included “Your Child” by Mary J. Blige, “Stronger” by Kristine W, “I Learned From The Best” by Whitney Houston, and “He Wasn’t Man Enough” by Toni Braxton. Even the many difficult hurdles that were placed before him (and the world) in 2001, haven’t been able to discourage or stop his momentum.
This year he has managed to find the time to produce numerous chart-topping remixes, produce a series of unforgettable parties with record-topping attendance’, make numerous (and rare) worldwide appearances, and create his newest venture, Junior Vasquez Sound (JVS). JVS is a one-of-kind sound system, that after seeing the need to take his sound system to the next level, he created for himself. In the world of nightclubs, a Junior/JVS experience is not to be missed.
