The Night of Dia De Los Muertos started early this year with Giant Skull. First spot was Downtown L.A. at Grand Park. Yikes! The second we arrived, Giant Skull got rushed.Then after a close call with the po-po, we kept it moving to Self Help Graphics & Mariachi Plaza in Boyle Heights. Where we saw Mexican Institute of Sound rock the Plaza.(video coming soon) Where Giant Skull got a lot of love.After the Mariachi Plaza, we went to the after party of the night, just down the street to Azul 213’s “BAILE DE LOS MUERTOS” with my Hit + Run Crew. Where the party continued all night.There was a lot more in between the good times of course that ended with some Ordonez 24 hour Mexican restaurant in Montebello where mos def all the freaks come out at night espcially at 3am in the morning. Ha! Till next year good night Giant Skull.

About Jose Marquez:
Los Angeles DJ/Producer/Dad Jose Marquez’s musical influence is a result of being brought up on a stable diet of Latin and World Music. Always intrigued by electronic sounds, Jose’s mission has been to fuse his love of world rhythms with the dance floor. Jose indeed succeeded when he burst onto the scene in 2010 with memorable remixes & edits of artists such as Celia Cruz, Nina Simone, Oumou Sangare and many others
In less than two years time, Jose was blessed with the opportunity to introduce his sound to the world by remixing for renowned Housemusic labels such as Tribe Records, Djoon Experience, Vega/Nulu Records, United Music, Yoruba Records, Wonderwheel and Deeper Shades Recordings.
Since then, he continues to travel the globe uniting nations on the dance floor with his signature sound performing at major clubs and events such as Djoon (Paris), Mamacas (Athens), Tambor (Atlanta), Solid Garage (Toronto), DEEP (Los Angeles), WMC (Miami) Crossroads (NYC), Mi Casa es su Casa (Mexico), Uhuru Afrika (Boston)
