Top Up-And-Coming DJ

If know you what’s up downtown, you know that DJ Teenwolf is the Las Vegan on the rise in the electronic dance music world. Bryan Orellana learned how to produce and DJ at age 17, and within a year was being flown around the world to perform at electro-house-loving nightclubs in Australia and Canada. After his bootleg of Rye Rye’s track “Bang” went to No. 1 on the top blog site, his popularity shot even higher as BBC Radio personality Annie Mac then featured his song in her show. Humble and grounded in his Las Vegas hometown, Teenwolf can be credited with importing EDM acts such as Le Castle Vania, Dave Nada and the Moombahton Massive. His unique blend of Moombahton, electro-house and hip-hop in his set proves his potential knows no bounds, as he was recently chosen as the local resident DJ for Insomniac/Frequency’s monthly, Funktion, debuting Jan. 5 at the Hard Rock Café on the Strip.
