Daniel Soto 22, (Swagflu)
Born in Chicago Daniel, is just that one random dude with random ideas, out of the ordinary jokes and different vibes. In 2006, When he was 15 he used to come all the way to Chicago from Plainfield just to party with his cousin. These were his first ecounters at Chicago "House Parties". Daniel enjoyed this new party lifestyle scene. He liked the whole environment, bass thumpin, and lets not forget the whole "ayy ayy yo", chanting. Hearing that now is when you know parties are set in a positive, get lost moment. At least for the southsiders in chicago. He loved the style of music because it was new to him and he was new to IT. He also realized the control it bared when it came to the selection of music and how two single tracks can perfectly be transitioned together. It never fails to get your body moving. Daniel then, wanted that same feel and control and swiftly got into DJing. Soon after learning the basics on his own. Around 2008, He got a chance to DJ at house parties, events and even sweet six-teens. All thanks to his great group of friends and supporters like, Kyle the security guy, Matthew Negrete aka Negrete, Ozzie X, and Kidriot but, Daniel wasn't getting enough from just mixing music. He wanted to make music, call it his own and master the art of blending together his very own productions instead. By 2010 Daniel again, Self-taught himself how to use Fruity Loops....somwhat. He Made a few tracks pertaining to Trance, Hard House, Juke, House, and Baltimore. In 2011, his friend Sal aka Madman, wanted to start an entertainment to take on the party scene and host parties. That's when Fatal Beatz Entertainment made an appearance. After meeting alot of faces from all the parties attened. He came accros few great producers that inspired him such as, Ricky aka Quality, Alex aka Lexx Supreme, Etc. Daniel then became a better producer after being good friends with Quality. Quality was able to pass down a few tips and lessons to him. Together along with DJ Madman they continue to produce Chicago flavored music. Now 2013, Focusing on producing, Daniel couldn't be happier. He was introduced to be a part of one of his teen favorite party crews, Hit Em Up Entertainment. Fatal Beatz and Hit Em Up now host some of the dopest parties in the Chicago Southside! Daniel will continue to pursuit his challenges awaiting ahead of producing and Djing. Daniel one day wants to become a resident DJ, a well talented producer, and would like to compose a track that enables people allover the world to embrace the art of music.
