SHARE TO VOTE FOR: Pompilio
Tell us a bit about yourself:
Pompilio is a 23-year old DJ based in Miami. He comes from a Hispanic background as he was born in Venezuela but grew up in Puerto Rico and Miami. From a very young age Pompilio had a deep love for music and as he grew up he started to love and appreciate it even more. He enjoys a wide variety of music genres which shows a lot when he performs.
At the age of 14, Pompilio attended his first electronic music festival. At first, he was into dubstep and trap but as time passed he kept exploring the different sounds of electronic music. Around the age of 18 he finally found House Music and Techno and ever since then he hasn’t looked back. Instead, the love for it just kept growing to the point that he decided to start mixing just to mess around. Turns out that as he started learning he really liked it so he decided to start to record mixes and create a page to post his content. After a couple of mixes and gaining the confidence to play in front of other people he decided to start looking for some gigs.
After a year and half of just playing in his bedroom and playing at small house parties, Pompilio has had the opportunity to play at some venues around Miami such as Treehouse, Bacanno, Sky Yard, amongst other venues/events and private parties. He’s still hungry for more and is constantly looking for more venues and events to play at.
Also, he is constantly working on making mixes which he releases on his SoundCloud to keep his sound up to date. Pompilio has a deep passion for tech house, techno, Afro house, and melodic house/techno. You could expect to hear some of this at one of his gigs or on one of his mixes.
