Palomo’s passion for electronic music spans the history of his deep roots in rhythm, sound, and dance.

Sez naturally led him to become a DJ, which he picked up easily after years of playing the drums since the age of six. In the early 80’s he discovered Kraftwerk and Afrika Bambaataa. Taking their musical messages to heart, Palomo became a renegade of funk, looking, searching, seeking, finding the perfect beats which led him to the early Detroit techno scene and Chicago’s acid house craze. In 1991, he attended many raves and began hosting some of the most craziest underground warehouse-loft parties in 93. He has since been playing an integral role in keeping Chicago's electronic scene on the map having organized events under his leadership of EnvironMental Sound Therapists, the Conjugate Projekt (best known for the unprecedented moving train party Motion-ness and Grant Parks Resonance parties), along with 773 Tekno Saturdays (w/ Tim Xavier), D:Section (w/ Meiotic), De:Form (w/ Friction Detroit and Infrastructure NY), In Your System! Event’s (w/ Blueline records and Majestic), Zuvuya and now Linear.Driven by the technology of the past, present and future, he established Zuvuya Recordings and launched the Galactic Tone series as a vehicle to share his concepts and ideas thru music.
