🎧From Puerto Rico but based in Brooklyn, NYC, Bio Zounds a House Music, DJ/Producer, specializing in the sounds of Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico Tribal House, infused with electronic elements.
Bio Zounds started out his career as DJ Biohazard. Around 13 or 14 years old he became very curious about what djs were and what they did. He didn’t have the proper equipment when he first started out so he took a double tape deck and started doing his own thing as he learned for himself what djing was all about. By the 1990’s he had moved to New York City and was playing at least six house parties a year in his apartment in the Bronx. Back then his sound had more elements of Electroclash and Electro House, and to go along with that he dressed in costume with theatrical makeup and contacts. He got the name DJ Biohazard after his friends told him his music made them want to do drugs.
By 2011 he started to pay more attention to the wonderful music he was producing and slowly transitioned from DJ Biohazard to Bio Zounds. He shed the makeup and costumes and focused more on the tribal sounds which have become part of his signature.
Today Bio Zounds hosts his own show called Epic Drumz on Digitally Imported Radio (DI.FM) every 3rd Saturday of the month, on the Tribal House channel, landed his first club residency at The Manhattan Monster Bar in January 2016, and is one of the resident DJs for the SLAY, JERK and MALE ROOM parties in NYC, since 2017. He has monthly Podcasts, Original Tracks and Remixes constantly published on Facebook/Twitter, SoundCloud, MixCloud, HearThis and YouTube. Has played in many different venues in PR and NYC. Winner of the One Magical Weekend (OMW) 2K17 DJ Contest. Named 2018 DJ On The Rise by Kinkster MAG, NYC. Creator of the TRIBES Circuit parties, and an artist of Big Mouth Music LLC since 2016.
Bio Zounds is best known for his energetic, hard Tribal House sound. He attributes some of his interest and passion for this genre to Nina Flowers. When he saw her dj for the first time he knew that he was hooked, till finally producing a track together called, “TAMBORES” and opening for her at The Boqueron PRIDE Festival 2017, in Cabo Rojo, PR.
Bio Zounds tweaks his sounds by adding electronic elements to his tracks. Drums are another tell tale sign of a Bio Zounds track. “I must have drums in my productions. It is engrained in everything that I do,”.
Bio Zounds is a passionate and dedicated DJ. He is committed to producing music that will stick to his signature sounds yet he is open to exploring where his sounds will take him. Much of his productions are the result of experimenting with instrumental elements. As he tests sounds and various elements and they seem to work, he explodes them into new dynamic beats.
