DJ Madrid

music / djs / dj madrid

DJ Madrid spins at Vaudeville, Tucson, March 2003 (above); at the Drake Ballroom, Winter 2002 (below).

Prodigal son DJ Madrid returned to Tucson in Fall 2002 from Las Vegas, where the scene pushed him deeper into his spin. Madrid's dark hair and green eyes are part of his Spanish heritage (yes, as in that Madrid). House, from the Latin to the UK flavors, is both the fuel of his inspiration and the result of Madrid's sets and productions.
