Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Jaclyn started DJing in 1996 when she was just 16 years old in her hometown of New York. Early influences consisted of house music pioneers such as Larry Heard (aka Mr Fingers), Herbert, Kevin Saunderson, Lil Louis, Dj Sneak, King Britt, DJ Duke, Jeno and many more. Growing up in NY, deep house music took a hold on Jaclyn at a young age like no other genre of music ever has since. When DeSantis was 20 years old, she moved to Brooklyn where she became apart of a Deep House Collective called FSR (Funky Soul Rebels) who threw underground parties in NY for some years. She has played in numerous cities in Spain, such as Madrid, La Coruña, Asturias, Santiago, Vigo, and at the infamous Moog in Barcelona.
In 2003 Jaclyn moved to California, and soon after discovered Burning Man & the west coast festival circuit where she became more influenced by deep, throbbing, wompy bass, and a fusion of old & new sounds like that of the Martin Brothers, Audiojack, Dusky, Claude Von Stroke, Josh Butler, Eats Everything to name a few. Jaclyn took a hiatus from Djing but is back after being reminded just how much she loves making other people dance and getting behind the decks.
