Spend a few minutes with Joe Quixx, and you’ll discover he’s not only a man of the people, but a man of integrity. For many superstar djs, it’s all about the fame. With Quixx it’s all about the music. As the original DJ for The Wake Up Show, he helped to put KMEL on the hip hop map two decades ago. Since then, he’s been a mentor to many younger djs in the bay area, sharing the wisdom learned in a lifetime Dj-ing.
The CEO at Latin Soul Brothers Music, and a member of local set the Oakland Faders, he stays busy. But that doesn’t keep him out of the studio working on new tracks, constantly trying to push the envelope to make his fans sweat on the dance floor. Quixx’s DJ shows are legendary and always include massive amounts of originals, remixes and re-rubs that are exclusive to his set and style.
With Joe Quixx’s encyclopedic knowledge of music and a record collection to match, you often get a history lesson on the dance floor. When Joe’s on the mix, you’re liable to hear just about anything in the canon, from old school classics to 90s sample and loop favorites to the latest beats in the streets.
