Born in Guatemala, DJ Low (a.k.a. Louis Velasquez) migrated to Los Angeles when he was 9. He has been an official DJ for Latino Mixx 99.3-FM in Las Vegas for five years, and holds residencies at Embassy Nightclub, Commonwealth and Club Pura in San Francisco. He’s mixed shows for radio stations including La Fiesta 98.5-FM in Westhampton, New York, and Hawaii’s Rudeboy Radio, and is part of Lo Maximo Productions, a collective of Latin DJs from all over the world.

Best Latin Nights

Embassy Nightclub has been doing it for more than five years strong, and lately bringing Latin artists every Thursday. Commonwealth took a risk doing Latin Night on Tuesdays. No one else was doing Latin Nights Downtown, and so far they’re great. Let me tell you, those drinks are phenomenal.

Best Date Night

Hecho en Vegas in MGM Grand. The food is amazing, starting with their guacamole and chips, and their mango mojito is so delicious.

Best Latin Promoter

If you don’t know Frank Montes, then I’m sorry, but you haven’t been to the best Latin clubs in Las Vegas. He has been promoting for more than six years. Some of the clubs he has managed include Crown (in the Rio Hotel), Oracle and Embassy nightclubs.

Best Latin DJ

Gil Barba has been in the Latin industry for as long as I have. Not only is he a good DJ, he will try to help you in any way, so you better yourself as a DJ. His music goes from old to new music and open format selections.

Best Song to Play to Get the Party Started

Nicky Jam is killing it with “El Perdón,” which features Enrique Iglesias. This song got 7 million YouTube plays within the first week of being out. The song is so big in the Latin industry that he had to do an English version. I also can’t forget about J Balvin’s newest single, “Ginza.” These two songs get the party going and the ladies screaming.

Best Up-and-Comer

DJ June B has only been in the industry for a year or so, and he has made his name stand out from the rest. He is an official radio DJ for Latino Mixx 99.3-FM. He is also a resident DJ for Embassy Nightclub, Club 2100, etc.
