We had the good fortune of connecting with Miguel Hernandez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Miguel, what do you want people to remember about you?
I would like to be remembered as a dj that made a difference. I would like for more professional djs to volunteer more at their local elementary schools. To inspire the youth to new and difference styles of music and djing techniques.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
There are tons of djs. In order for me to stand out was never easy in a sea of much more talented djs in Houston. I just kept putting out mixes and networking with the promoters I was already working with. Working together already and planning for future events adding more than just sound and music. I was making myself more valuable but adding event input helping locking in vendors or sponsorships. My value was djing that’s my passion but at the same time being part of the event crew helps and builds stronger bonds among the staff.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
1st would be lunch & margaritas at Lopez Mexican restaurant (Wilcrest and 59 area)
2nd Take them to catch a local dj night (depending where my buddies be djing at)
3rd catch a local car meet aka import car show such as Eat, Sleep, Car Meet (professionally organized with police presence)
4th Catch a Local Food Truck such as the Blue Lagoon Mexican Food on Cook and Beechnut
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would give credit to Jeffrey Flores for introducing me to the might 1200 technique turntables.
My late friend Franklin Medina for teaching me how to market myself.
My parents for allowing me to do me. They they understood my creative side and thought me a great work ethic.
My wife for keep up my crazy self.
