DJ Dynamiq has made quite the name for himself along the West Coast as the biggest Latin DJ in the region. Having started his career in a DJ booth in San Diego, DJ Dynamiq has now headlined two of the biggest Latin music festivals in the world – Baja Beach Festival in Rosarito, Mexico, and Sueños, Chicago’s first ever music festival dedicated to Latin music.
Born in Mexicali, the capital of Baja California state in Mexico, DJ Dynamiq immigrated to the United States when he was six years old. After graduating high school, DJ Dynamiq started his DJ career by playing smaller gigs. After moving to San Diego at the age of 20, he began to score bigger gigs, working at bars, lounges, and eventually nightclubs. In 2012, DJ Dynamiq began to travel to other cities to play at clubs in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. During this time, DJ Dynamiq also started to focus on establishing a Latin DJ movement by branding himself as a Latin DJ and playing more reggaeton music to rep his roots and background.
Performing at the first-ever Sueños Music Festival in Chicago was a satisfying full-circle moment for DJ Dynamiq’s career that validated his brand and movement. It could also be considered as something that was five years in the making. Since branding himself as a Latin DJ, DJ Dynamiq has successfully been pushing the culture of the movement on the West Coast, bringing both Latin DJs and artists to San Diego. Even before performing in Sueños, DJ Dynamiq was already playing at huge festivals, such as Baja Beach Fest 2019 and 2021. He has opened up for talents such as Bad Bunny for his X 100Pre Tour in Tijuana, Mexico, and four dates for his El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo in San Diego, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and San Jose. DJ Dynamiq is also the official tour DJ for both Mariah Angeliq and Matt Paris.
At Sueños, which took place over Memorial Day weekend 2022, DJ Dynamiq wowed the crowd with his energy, character, and charisma. His understanding of the crowd and truly creating an outstanding and memorable experience through interacting and engaging with others is how he has become a significant DJ within his industry. With 45,000 attendees who showed love for all the headliners, it was a festival that made Chicago history. “Chicago now has a festival that they can call their own now, and for me to be a part of it, it’s an honor and a blessing,” says DJ Dynamiq.
DJ Dynamiq has even more exciting things to look forward to with his career. His most recent single, “Lotto,” released in early May, features Quimico Ultra Mega, JaySí, and NFA, and has a music video set to come out soon. A record that was two years in the making, DJ Dynamiq describes it as an “absolute club banger,” with other fellow DJs already playing it around the world. The record represents his next calling, being an executive producer and releasing music.
DJ Dynamiq has set the bar high for DJs, especially with his performance at Sueños. Already an inspiration for other Latinos within the industry, it’s exciting to see what festival he will be headlining next.
