DJ Puerto Roc | Interview
Growing up in North Jersey, DJ Puerto Roc was surrounded by hip hop and decided at age 12 that he would be a DJ. Puerto Roc taught himself to mix, blend, match, and even scratch. He made mixtapes for his neighbors and was spinning at clubs by age 16. By the time he was 18, he was touring the world with Twista, Kurupt, K-Solo, Craig G, Sadat X, and Lords Of The Underground. Puerto Roc began producing records for the artists he toured with, as well as Canibus, Cymarshall Law, Ready Roc, El Da Sensei, and Black Rob. With 10 years of DJing experience for Canibus, producing, and DJing for events such as the Rocksteady Anniversary and European festivals, Puerto Roc was also an A&R for M.O.P. and the legendary producer DR Period.
