Los Angeles-based DJ Blacklow (Jeremy Blacklow) grew up inspired by the house music of New York City in the ’90s. From the time he moved there in 1994, the beats of DJs such as Junior Vasquez, Danny Tenaglia, Victor Calderone and the late Peter Rauhofer Rauhofer –- and the Sunday house sounds of Danny Krivit, Joe Claussell and François K at Body & Soul — opened his ears to the sounds that still influence him today. Living in Los Angeles since 2004, Blacklow finally listened to friends’ advice and took his love of music to the next level, beginning to play bars, clubs and events throughout Southern California in 2011.
