Jose Spinnin Cortes


With 2 decades of turntable-experience, several tracks charted by top DJs and a jaw-dropping mixing technique, Jose Spinnin Cortes has proven to be one of the most influential and respected DJs of the mexican dance music scene.

Jose begun mixing in 1993 as a mobile DJ, and by the summer of 1996 he's got his first residency at The Plantation club in his hometown, Guadalajara. A few years passed by and so several clubs, but in 2004 when he became the resident DJ of one of Mexico's most important gay clubs: Monica's Club.

His career as a music producer started in 1997, making a few tracks with DJ Richard Herrera, and by 2000 he started remixing independently. In August 2005 he remixed Offer Nissim's "First Time", featuring Maya Simantov for the remix competition held by Star 69 Records in New York City. Jose won the contest, and that's when artist and producers begun requesting his work as a remixer.

In the summer of 2006 Jose released his first single "IBEROAMERICA", a progressive tribal track that would set Jose’s trademark sound, and make both Mexican clubbers and DJs turn their looks into his work. In the same year, Jose was signed in Mexico by the most important electronic record label in Latin America at the time: +Mas Label.
