Collection: Juan Mejia
Miami based DJ & Producer Juan Mejia has achieved a solid reputation in the East Coast music scene for the past two decades for his unique brand of Club dance music.
In 1995, Juan moved to Orlando to attend Full Sail of the Recording Arts where he got his Audio Engineering degree. While he was in school he discovered his true calling was in the DJ world. His passion for music landed him a residency at the top club in Orlando called “Firestone” where he had the chance to spin with greats such as Josh Wink, Sasha and John Digweed. Juan was also invited to play in the first Zen festivals in Orlando, which introduced him to all kinds of electronic music and a true feel for the underground scene. This was the time when DJ’s played records and there were no CD players. In addition, Juan played the first two Ultra Festivals before it became mainstream.
Juan was determined to move back to Miami in 1999 ,and in no time he had residencies at Groove Jet, Mansion (Level), Opium, and Crobar. Spinning at Crobar gave Mejia the opportunity to become involved in the Deep House movement that was happening at the time. He started to experiment with the sound and found himself playing all over the country in places like San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Las Vegas and South America. Also touring and opening for such greats as Erik Morillo, Josh Wink & Little Louie Vega during the Heineken Tours of the famous Crobar Parties.
Deep House was his true calling and in 2003 he started his label Dutchie Music. In the last 15 years the label has released over 300 releases worldwide and achieved an underground following due to Mejia’s A&r Work. Artists Such as Stan Kolev, Joeski, The Timewriter, Soledrifter, Pete Herbert, BiG AL and many others have had their music published by Dutchie Music. The label has achieved five #1’s in it’s historic run. Juan Continues to DJ Worldwide. Yearly tours to South America (Peru, Mexico and Colombia) have given Dutchie Music a worldwide platform.
He has developed an alliance with the Southeast Asia Elite and is touring every 6 months to countries like Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand and India. Now is time to share the vibes with the Middle east!
