Musician/DJ/MC/PRODUCER

DJ ROCKSTAR

 

Matthew Orozco was born in Elgin, IL. He began playing the drums and acting at age 5. By age 15, Matthew formed a band called "High Risk" which had received much recognition among the city locals and the Chicago suburbs. Following High School, the band went their separate ways, and by 21, Matthew had become a professional rock drummer. He played the Chicago circuit and also recorded drum tracks for other artists. Looking to focus more on his writing, guitar playing and vocal ability, Matthew studied vocal performance & music theory at McHenry County College. During that time, he also attended and graduated from the world famous Sketch Comedy & Improvisation school "Second City" Chicago. Around the same time (on a fluke, with no aspirations at all to become a DJ) he was offered a  DJ position and became instantly intrigued. Matthew approaches his craft differently than any other DJ/MC/PRODUCER before him. He DJs the way a rockstar plays an instrument. While performing, he aims to please his crowd by determining what needs to be played in order to optimize the energy in the room. Matthew uses his powerful voice & comedic timing to work the crowd into a fun-filled frenzy. Since 1998 he has accomplished more than he ever thought possible. Matthew toured the country with the "COORS LIGHT MAXIM SEARCH PARTY" for two years in a row and headlined many major events with major bands and DJ's. These include Coors Light, Maxim, Hard Rock Cafe, Rockstar Energy Drink, Red Bull, Jim Beam, Draft FCB, Chicago Theater, Euro Chicago and many more. DJs/Bands: Sister Hazel, Gin Blossoms, Dot Dot Dot, Hat Guys, Posin, Local H, DJ AM, Mix Master Mike, Skribble, Frankie Knuckles, Heavy Grinder, Terri Bristol, Psycho Bitch, DJ Cosomo, JJ Flores, Mixin Marc, Bobby D, Too Kool Chris.........  

 


DJ Rockstar wants only one thing... to be your favorite DJ.  If you've heard the word on
Rockstar, then you know he's already fulfilled that wish for thousands of clublife faithful.
Where most DJ's would throw down 40 to 60 tracks in a 2-hour set, Rockstar is slamming in
120+ of the hottest house, rock, hiphop, top 40, remixes and mashups the globe has to offer.
Bringing his own brand of mashup to the turntables, he's kept nighclubs bumping across the
U.S. for years.  From New York's famous Webster Hall and Las Vegas Club Rain (inside the
Palms Hotel & Casino), to New Years Eve inside The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tampa,
Rockstar continues to bring his signature style to the hottest venues around.  Rockstar
lives to make every room he plays keep up with his neverending journey through the best
music available. I'm here to do whatever it takes to make people jump, dance, scream, and
lose it on the dancefloor, he gladly admits.  The adrenaline rush I get when a track drops
in just right, and the crowd goes crazy for it... That's what itís all about. Feeding off
of their energy, Rockstar constantly reads the crowd; stealing through the music as if he
knows your playlist by heart.  Slamming Michael Jackson into Guns n Roses, or even combining
Benny Benassi, My Chemical Romance, & Public Enemy into one track is simply the way Rockstar
puts his set in motion. Currently, Rockstar has just released his latest mix:: BODY ROCK on FitRadio,

and is busy producing more of his signature mashups, remixes and original material.
