DJ MAZ's passionate relationship with music began in his early childhood days. Born and raised in Boston, MA, DJ MAZ's strong Dominican roots taught him at a very young age that all festivities and social events revolved around music. To him, music is life's heart beat.
He remembers his father's collection of records and recorded cassette tapes would always be used for family events. His father's collection ignited the fire and began DJ MAZ's musical journey. He quickly realized how extremely passionate he was about music and later began purchasing cassettes - beginning his own collection. Some of his first purchases consisted of reggae and reggaeton artists, such as: Big Boy, Maicol Y Manuel, El General, Sean Paul, Beenie Man and all of the "Reggae Gold" collections. Reggae and Reggaeton were the first genres that DJ MAZ became truly passionate about.
At the age of 12, DJ MAZ, was given a 3 deck radio boom box as a gift. This enabled him to record his first mix on cassette. He remembers how amazing it felt when his family and friends constantly played it and expressed how much they loved to hear it. This was a feeling DJ MAZ could not stray away from and he kept pursuing his passion in any way he could.
As technology evolved, so did he. His cassette collection soon became a music library, compiled of all of latest hits on CDs, Computer downloads, DJ Mixtapes and of course, all time classics. Slowly but surely, DJ MAZ's confidence was building and he soon became the Official DJ at all of his family and friends events.

He regularly started attending different club events, and began to build relationships with club promoters and other local DJs. That was when he met DJ Andy Panty.
