LAST FIVE
OUR CREW

There are many DJ's that can say they are accomplished. Some say they have done it all. Others say they have seen it all. Few have done both and are still making people dance. For the past 20 plus years DJ Armando has seen and done just that. From being America's leading On-Air dance radio personality on XM Satellite Radios' BPM to traveling across the US playing at various venues, Armando has brought the latest in dance and house music to North America.

From the early age of 5, Armando already knew music was something he was very interested in playing 45's on a small toy record player pretending he was the dj on the radio. He had an eclectic musical influence being born in Miami and raised in both Miami and New York. Armando has been working in the nightclub scene even before he graduated from high school and has been working the mix since 1987. Armando spun his beats all over quickly making his way into the New York scene. His seamless mixing ability was something that he developed very quickly and applied to his unique style, bringing his intensifying vibe to dance floors all over the east coast.

As he traveled from venue to venue, Armando's popularity rapidly took off with his creative beats and mixing style. Many individuals recognized his raw musical talent, which brought him to his next calling in life as a radio Mixshow DJ. The popular Long Island Radio station, Party 105, began having Armando mix a weekday show at noon and work the airwaves with his distinct mixes to all listeners. From weekday mixes at lunch time to the drive home in the afternoons and finally landing a 4 hour primetime mixshow slot on Saturday nights which Armando mixed and hosted, Armando crossed over becoming both On-Air personality and Mixshow DJ in 1. His raw and real personality was quickly embraced by listeners. He stayed with Party 105 for some time becoming one of the most popular DJ's on the airwaves in New York. As Party 105 grew, so did Armando's repertoire.

Armando continued to spin at venues all over the Northeast and then on 1 of his annual trips to Miami for WMC, he was introduced to the then developing XM Satellite Radio Dance scene. Seeing Armando as an asset as he worked with XM at the Ultra Music Festival during Winter Music Conference in Miami, they quickly wanted to take advantage of this rising star. Before leaving Miami that week, Armando was offered the opportunity to become Music Director for BPM on XM and the channels Resident Mix Show DJ along with his own nightly show. This was the opportunity of a lifetime and the beginning of big things to come for Armando.

After only 6 months of being on the air with XM, Armando, along with Program Director Skyy, took BPM over the top and it quickly became the number 1 rated Dance Music channel in the world, earning BPM another nomination for Best Dance Radio Channel and Armando his first nomination as Best Radio Mixshow DJ in the world at the International Dance Music Awards the very next year during WMC. Armando was nominated along side such well know talent as Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, and Pete Tong.

Almost 25 years after putting his first record on a turntable, DJ Armando is one of the most popular Mixshow DJ's and On-Air Personalities in the Music Industry. He has opened for worldly talents such as Tiesto, ATB, Kaskade, Robbie Rivera, Bob Sinclar and Benny Benassi. Armando is a crowd favorite as an opener and headliner at internationally known venues across the US which attract only the biggest DJ's and talent from all over the world.

With the growing popularity of his show, "Addiction", and desire to reach more than the North American dance audience, Armando has taken the next step to showcase his talent to the world via internet radio. He is currently working with the musical talents at www.radiodanz.com bringing "Addiction" to the world. Along with his broadcasts and podcasts, Armando is still spinning across the country bringing his "addictive" vibe and musical personality to venues in Washington DC, New York, Miami, Orlando, Chicago, New Jersey, Detroit, Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Denver, Charlotte, Grand Rapids, Oklahoma City, and Baltimore just to name a few.

Armando has become one of the most well accomplished On-Air Personalities and DJ's in North America and is now looking to turn up the BPM's on the rest of the world and does not plan on slowing them down!
