June Lopez was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, June Lopez represents a new & old breed of dance music producers — one that blurs genre lines by intelligently fusing together elements of house, latin and techno to simultaneously move dance floors and provoke the imagination. June Lopez’s roots run deep like a North Philly sunrise on a Sunday morning. A child of the ’70′s, June was exposed to the roots of dance music at a early age by his parents. Raised with a taste for hypnotically pleasing rhythms, the sounds of Puerto Rico, Cuba and the Dominican Republic were never far from his ears.
June’s love affair with music selection started rather casually. As the story goes, June first learned to DJ on his mother’s stereo. He would take wax paper and line the turntable to keep his records from getting scratched. He had a record playing in one room, and a tape player going in the next, pause-mixing to his heart’s content. This sealed June’s interest in moving people through music and playing to their emotions.
With over a dozen record releases under his belt, June Lopez's “deep-yet-dance floor” sound has been turning heads and catching the attention of those in the know world wide. To date he's worked, remixed, with such artists as Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Wolfgang Puschnig, Wadud, Brian Keith, Richard Waller III, Kmar, Alma “Lady Alma” Horton, Mazi, Boo Williams, Kurt Boyer, Richard Waller III, Bon Vega, Tony Catastrophe, Chris Udoh, The Last Poets, Monica McIntyre, Rob Paine, Tommy Hogunz, Father John D’Amico, Sierra Hurt, John Beltran, Christian Soulson James, The Roots, Mikki Kornegay, Vanishing Peoples, Guy Vercruysse (Furniture Crew), Aaron Carl and Stefanie Renee.
Today, June displays his willingness to take risks and defy genre confinements not only as a producer, but also as a DJ. On the decks, June Lopez always finds ways to take his audience on a journey through chunky deep latin house grooves, infectious techie patterns, and vivid atmospheric textures. His primary focus is keeping to the traditions of deep house and techno.
