DJ JUANNY’s music is inspired by the sounds of Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica while often incorporating samples from films and pop culture.
JUANNY originally pursued a passion for streetwear while working at a revered clothing and sneaker shop in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district where notable Bay Area DJs would often play sets or sell mixtapes. It was in this environment where JUANNY developed an obsession with DJing. He began to throw parties where he could spin tracks ripped from more obscure corners of Soundcloud.
After a stint living in Miami, JUANNY felt passionately about bringing the soundscape of his adolescence (and adopted second home) back to the Bay Area, eventually forming party series and netlabel AMOR DIGITAL with close collaborators 99% and Yuca Frita.
At the onset of the pandemic, JUANNY dove into music production, self-releasing a string of EPs before eventually releasing 4-track EP, ‘SUCHITOTO,’ via seminal Mexico City label N.A.A.F.I., combining elements of reggaeton, dembow and UK club sounds.
