DJ
 
Mel Urena

DJ Urena loves to entertain people by playing tunes. He believes music is a universal language for all of us. Music can change your mood; it can transform you to another world and even to another dimension. DJ Urena finds it cool that he is the wizard behind the curtain taking you for a ride.

One of his favorite things to do while DJing, is to people watch and see if they are moving to his music.

Sometimes it’s just a gentle movement of a finger, head, or foot. Sometimes, it’s an all-out dancing. Knowing that he is the man with that power is awesome and bring him great joy.
