The Confessional | Jojo Flores

Jojo Flores, Montréal | A Music Prophet, jojoflores has djed everywhere vinyl can be found. He embodies the universality of music and has provided life soundtracks to club-heads for years. This DJ can save my life any night.

What is harder? Reading a record label in the dark or answering this questionnaire? It would have to be reading a record or CD label in the dark.

There is a special place for djs in the hearts of Montrealers. Where else in the world have you noticed such a venerated DJ Culture?
San Francisco

Boy George’ signature DJ accessories are his Louis Vuitton crates. What are yours?
My limited edition Run DMC Adidas record bag and Tumi back pack.

What are the last 5 cities you played?
New York, Athens, Bordeaux, Cabo San Lucas, and Miami.

Tiesto played at the Torino Olympics Opening Ceremony which was quite surreal. What is your ultimate gig? There’s nothing like playing in front of your hometown fans so playing the outdoor main stage at the Montreal Jazz Fest would be awesome.

How have the democratization of music through podcasts and other online tools influenced your career? It keeps my finger on the pulse of today’s sound, and allows me to discover independent artists who otherwise would have fallen under the radar. The rise in popularity of podcasts allows my music to travel beyond places I could ever imagine.

What turns you off? Bad sound systems.

What is your favourite curse word?

What has pleasantly surprised you in the past two weeks?
Being able to stay in Montreal during the 2 coldest months without leaving. ;)

What has to stop? Everyone thinking they can DJ and global warming.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? “There IS guest list tonight!”

What is the “never miss” house music anthem that makes people go crazy on any dance floor in the world? Danny Krivit’s edit of Strings of Life.

You are in front of 90 000 screaming & adoring fans at Wembley Stadium. What song are you belting out? Antonio Ocasio’s edit of Doobie Bros., “Long Train Running”

On a deserted island, what do you bring besides your Blackberry, your I-Pod & your Amex?
My Macbook.

What entity or person is in most need of a new PR campaign?
Miami’s Winter Music Conference.

When will I see you next? That depends on where you live.

Got Soul?
