Zeus is just NOT another DJ – though he breathes, lives and eats music like most others in his profession. But what sets him apart, aside from his individuality, it’s his passion for the music, which stems from his connection to it. With music being such a huge part of his life, he set out to find a name that was synonymous to his goals and so “Zeus” the DJ was born. Zeus, god of thunder and sky is perhaps, the most recognizable figure in all of Greek mythology, and is credited with being a powerhouse, whose stories have impacted the world and continue to do so. Zeus has high hopes that his music will have the same effect on the people of his generation.
This up-and-coming DJ is based out of Miami, the same place he calls home. You can catch him spinning his infectious beats at Ibiza in Palm Beach or The Vagabond in Downtown Miami. Aside from his club gigs, he’s also hard at work on re-establishing his Internet radio career, which began on The Womb. Presently, Zeus is affiliated with the Grammy U branch of Florida, an organization that helps college students pursuing a career in the record industry to network by creating opportunities outside of the school curriculum. Zeus releases monthly mixes, which you can find on his Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=lf#!/dr.zeus1?ref=ts) for his fans’ enjoyment. In 2010, a new fashion line, I Am Civilized began sponsoring him.
Jesus “Zeus” Morillo started spinning trance and deep house at the age of 15 at local house and corporate parties. His love for electronic music began after his first visit to the world-renowned music festival, Ultra. Ten years after his first visit to Ultra, Zeus played in front of hundreds of attendees at the very festival that has molded him into the artist he is today. His influences include Hernan Cattaneo, Markus Schulz and Paul Oakenfold, as well as Edgar V, Christopher Lawrence, D: Fuse, Sandra Collins and Erick Morillo.
Now, with more than 10 years of experience in the biz, Zeus’ style has evolved into a deep tech-like groove sound. His talent has landed him gigs, playing at some of the hottest clubs in South Florida like BED, Discoteka, Glass, Vinyl & Kai, River Lounge, The Palms Hotel and Aerobar. One of his key goals is to become a well-recognized and respected figure in the industry, and, so he has begun work on his future, first full length artist CD.
Zeus’ music is his voice. He takes pride in the fact that he’s being recognized for his dedication, crazy energy and sound, which differs from Miami DJs. His sound is described as innovative by many music insiders and he’s known for having a keen ear for great tracks.
Stay tuned to see what’s in store for this amazing talented DJ, or better yet keep up with him to see what he’s got up his sleeve, next.
