Mr. Mauricio interviews with Miami Herald owned Miami.com. He chops it up with them a little and discusses his radio career and how he went from basically nowhere to then becoming one of the top club DJs to spring out of Miami. And in fact, he mentions that it all kinda just happened by mistake, err, or by chance actually.
How did you get your start in Miami?
Well, I started DJ-ing when I was 9, but didn’t get my first big break until I was 17 working the door at the infamous Liquid nightclub. You can say it was all by coincidence or fate. My friend and the biggest hip hop DJ in Miami at the time, DJ Radamas, was sick and they didn’t have anyone to fill in for him at the last minute. Chris Paciello, the owner, knew I DJ-ed and just told me, â€œHey you’re spinningâ€. No, he didn’t ask. So I went in there and played with DJ Radamas’ records. Long story short, I played so well that night I became the resident on Fridays at Liquid. Playing there [at Liquid] opened the doors for every new club to want me to play for them. Thirteen years later, I have played every major club including Lua, Crobar, Opium Garden, PrivÃ©, Mansion, and Cameo.
