BIO DJ / Producer Christian De La Torre & Jakato

CHRISTIAN DE LA TORRE from San Diego, is as California as they come, surfing the waves at the crack of dawn and living by music every second of the day. No one likes a one-note and nothing is monotone about the sounds De La Torre creates. From the age of 12, his musical influences ranged from jazz and classical to strumming guitar. Today, De La Torre’s passion has manifested into a tight set of talents: singer-song writing, mixing and producing. His electro house with deep bassy beats pay homage to present influences Skrillex and Deadmau5 with a nod to something mysterious and soulful.

Nothing represents a DJ Christian De La Torre experience like being at one of his live sets; his most recent performance at ON BROADWAY in San Diego, CA. He is a resident DJ with West Coast Club Life and Resident DJ.

De La Torre’s collaborations with DJ Jakato are a testament to his connection with music — each add their individual talents and produce mixes appreciated from as far as China. De La Torre aligns his goals with the greatest who have toured internationally and made a life of doing what they love.

For De La Torre, it isn’t just technical; it’s about music that moves and inspires. De La Torre is not just a dreamer but a doer, impressing upon his fans, ‘Never give up on your dreams’ as he pushes his way to the top, fueled by his love for music.

****BIO----JAKATO****

{Just A Kid Against The Odds}

After a few guitar lessons, Kenneth Mullins was hooked and started along the path known as “JAKATO”. High school in Lancaster, California was a musical estuary as he learned life’s lessons indiscriminately exploring hip hop, rap, metal, rock and just about everything on the radio waves. Upon moving to San Diego at 18, Jakato was thrown into the club scene with electro-house baiting him to the realization ‘I was hooked when I learned a single musician can compose a complete track digitally with only a computer and a mouse... so my quest began!’ Self-taught and self-reliant he traded string-strumming for music with volts. ‘Electronic music happened!’

Jakato is motivated by his vision and gift to digitally reproduce any sound be it piano, guitar, or the tunes that speak to his mind. While the likes of Eminem, Biggie, Eric Schrody, and Eddie Van Halen influenced his art, his present electronica inspirations come from the sets of Armin Van Buuren and Tiesto. Jakato aligns himself with peers Deadmau5, Morgan Page, Skrillex, Porter Robinson and Avicii whom he praises for walking the road, turning dreams to reality, and believing in oneself and others always. Jakato’s road thus far has involved three years, day in and out of learning digital audio workstations/programs, thus achieving the sounds he produces today.

Together with fellow producer and DJ, Christian De La Torre, the one vision of connecting with people through music motivates their busy days and late nights. Jakato sums it up, “This day and age is about serving others. No one above the other. We all have our place in life.That said, it is amazing to know that people will support good music that reaches them and moves them greatly. If we can show the people what we feel or how we feel or teach them something through music, moving them physically or mentally... well then we are bringing people together and uniting people on common ground through music!”

Jakato recognizes the focus on music in Armin Van Buuren’s fans. When asked about his vision for music in his future, the Jakato heart bleeds a sense of community as he wants to give a portion of future success back in a pay-it-forward way. Jakato is ambition, no doubt and with his heart in duo with music, he can achieve anything. Music is his lifeline and he is more than ready to share it.
