Special thanks to my brother "COZ" for inspiring me to return to my Boricua roots, and for the gift of congas one snowy Navidad in NJ which inspired me to return to the congas and the Salsa music that gave birth to "El Mazacote de la Mexcla Salsera", THANKS BRO !!!! 
A special shout out to my mom, dad and uncle Ray for the gift of music and percussion at a very young age, god bless you always !!!!
I also want to thank my entire family for allowing me to share my gift of music with you all, I truly loved all of those times and wouldn't change a thing, just live life to its fullest and listen to your heart !!!!
A SPECIAL THANKS to my best friend and wife, I have lived life to its fullest and wouldn't change any of it, you're my inspiration and best friend who has given me the best gift of all ... YOU !!!! 
A special thanks to my best friend and other brother David, great times, great memories, great mixes ... ... ... best friends for ever !!!  
About me, I have been recording & mixing Latin Jazz & Salsa Gorda since 1977, I also mix Latin, house, dance classics, old school 1980's hip-hop and world music.  I have also played live Latin Jazz percussion at the Blue note NYC, and at Cecil's Swingin' Latin jazz nights in Orange NJ.  My musical mentors who taught me during my teenage years and in the spanish harlem percussion clinics include the jazz & salsa legends Ray Barretto, Tito Puente and Charlie Palmieri.  I also love to play Latin percussion to just about everything especially the "Fania All-Stars", I have also mixed "salsa gorda" tunes for my brother from another mother and dear fellow friend Pedro Gomez back at Telemundo TV studios in Hato Rey PR, que viva la salsa por que aqui se formo la rumba !!!!

Glad to see you enjoy the mixes, I have been mixing since the late 70's taking the mix to the next level via the wheels of steel regardless of music genre ... ... ... and what separates me from the other DJs is that I'm an old school Salsa percussionist and b-boy break dancer from the boogie down Bronx ... ... ... Enjoy !!!

I want to thank all of you for allowing me to share with you my soul sauce and my gift of non-stop multi genre dance and salsa music. The mixes which I share with all have inspired me and have kept my spirit soaring above the clouds for many years now, it has also taken me to places that keep me motivated and inspired. With that said, I will be facing the biggest health obstacle of my life this week, I only ask that god renew my life card so that I can continue mixing for all of you !!!! Please wish me luck and pray that god gets me through this health obstacle, your prayers and well wishes will be very welcomed GREATLY appricated ... ... ... It hjas been my sincere pleasure to have been your DJ and your mixologist ... ... ... live life, love life, and most imprtantly enjoy life with music !!!
