DJ Cindel grew up around Chicago where his endless exposure to house music led to his love, and eventual practice, of producing it. Having done so since the age of 15, he has especially honed his skills creating drum mixes and tribal-house vocals, earning him the title “The King of the Drums”. Major influences such as Danny Tenaglia, Chus and Ceballos and Ralphi Rosario, along with his Puerto Rican roots, have helped mold his high-energy style into a successful career.
His big break came from a gig at Chicago’s Skybar, which led to a residency at Spin in Boystown where he held his own night called Sound Factory. Cindel later earned a residency at Club Ibiza in North Carolina opening for Hector Fonseca, as well as Palace on Ocean Drive in South Beach. He spent some time living in Miami playing other clubs such as Twist, Eros, Mekka, Euphoria and Cevichery.
Most recently, Cindel has made great strides by being named the WINNER of Matinee Las Vegas 2013 and Circuit Barcelona 2013. Other noted credits include working alongside two-time Grammy nominee Tony Moran as a part of Chicago’s Freedom Revolution at Excalibur. He is the first DJ to play 2 consecutive years at Puerto Rico’s Choreographers Ball, and was a headliner at Fly in Toronto for their Memorial Day Weekend Military Ball.
Now back in Chicago, DJ Cindel continues to land bookings all over; from Chicago and Puerto Rico Pride, to after hours in Atlanta and NYC. No matter what the event or venue, he commits to giving you a set full of fantastic beats for your nerves.
