Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Born and raised in Chicago's Little Village neighborhood, Soulpimp arises from a long line of musicians. He grew up surrounded by a collection of music ranging from soulful funk to Tejano. But it wasn't until he discovered the original Hot Mix 5 on WBMX that Soulpimp's fascination with house music turned into an obsession; his "bedroom DJ" days were over.
Self-taught, Soulpimp began his DJ career mixing at underground house parties. In 2008, Soulpimp was asked to spin for famed Zentra's Halloween party; he spun alongside Chicago house natives, Lego, DJ Caveman and Luis Segura. Soon after, Soulpimp became a "house" hold name and has been featured at many house clubs and festivals, including the legendary Boom Boom Room, Martini Ranch and the annual House of Sol festival.
Soulpimp’s deep, techno, electro house sounds can be heard on his monthly podcasts,Soulpimps podcast & Electronismo. Soulpimp will be focusing his talent this year on producing and remixing tracks that will be heard across the globe.
