Friday, Nov. 21, Austin-based Latin DJ collective Peligrosa is throwing their monthly dance party once again at their home base, the patio of Empire Control Room & Garage. Like they do every third Friday of month, they will be joined by a special guest. Friday night the Peligrosa boys will be joined none other than Venus X from New York City.
DJ Venus X is the music moniker of Jazmin Venus Soto. A native of Washington Heights, she is the daughter of a Dominican mother and an Ecuadorean father. Soto made her name with her New York party GHE20GOTH1K (pronounced “ghettogothic”) that she put on with friend Shayne Oliver. She’s been a DJ for superstar rapper M.I.A. and opened for popular acts including Gang Gang Dance and Theophilus London. Get a sample of Venus X’s mixing style below.
