DJ Mendoza

The classic NYC nightclub experience comes alive when Mendoza is behind the turntables.  The New York area native spent his late teens and early 20's as a promoter for Manhattan's most prominent megaclubs including the Tunnel, Limelight, Sound Factory, and Expo, always keeping an ear out for the tracks that drove the crowd into a frenzy.  Mendoza's biggest musical influences were the epic late-night and early-morning sets by legends such as Junior Vasquez, Victor Calderone, Peter Rauhofer, and David Morales, as well as the Balearic house sounds of Madrid, Barcelona, and Ibiza. 

 

Mentored under famed DJ legend Billy Carroll, he has spent the past 10+ years honing his unique style while presiding over private parties, philanthropic gatherings, and special events.  Under Carroll's guidance, he produced floor-thumping remixes that have been played in some of the most well-known clubs in NYC, across the US, and abroad.  Mendoza now holds a residency at Meteor Lounge in Houston, and also makes special appearances behind the decks at South Beach nightclub.

 

Mendoza enjoys exposing crowds to music they may not hear elsewhere, seamlessly blending the hottest new underground tracks, old-school house, big room vocals, spanish tribal, and re-imagined classics into a musical journey of past, present, and future.  His mission for the crowd is simple: "As one of my favorite house tracks puts it, 'Now let me see you WORK'."
