DJ LOUP ROUGE
Real Name: Raul Gerardo
Expressive on the turntables as he is IRL, DJ Loup Rouge is using his beats and platforms to spread the good vibes. Ask him about El Salvador and he’ll have lots to share about the music scene there, as well as demystifying any misconceptions as he was the youngest Consular Agent for El Salvador in the world. Legit, his favorite words to live by: “I believe the world is beautiful, and poetry, like bread, is for everyone.” See? He’s basically a fkn poet, people!
Hometown: Flushing, New York
Craziest thing ever done: Leaving my nice office job to become a freelance musician. Everyone thought I was absolutely nuts; I am just glad it worked out for me.
DJ Crush: Luther Calvin Riggs, we bounce a lot of ideas of each other and vibe well. We've even done back to back sets (2 songs each); Trust me, getting it right is harder than it sounds.
