Juan Mejia is a Miami based DJ & Producer, has achieved a solid reputation in the U.S. east coast music scene for the past two decades for his unique brand of Club dance music. Juan in 1995 moved to Orlando Florida 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 Florida, 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. As well Juan played the first two Ultra Music Festivals as after that it became way too commercial.

Also touring and opening for such greats as Erik Morillo , Josh Wink & Little Louie Vega during the Heineken Tours of the famous Back Door Bamby Parties. Deep House was his true calling.
