John Ochoa is a Brooklyn-based editor and writer. He currently spend his days, and often late nights, as editor-at-large for DJ Mag’s North American edition. Prior to DJ Mag, he helped launch Insomniac.com, the editorial arm of Insomniac Events (producers of the Electric Daisy Carnival), as the senior editor. His writing has also appeared at various print and online publications including Noisey (Vice), LA Weekly, MTV News, MTV Iggy, Thrillist and elsewhere, where his work has explored the intersection of music and the arts, culture, identity and community. A self-proclaimed Morrissey-obsessed Mexican-American, he grew up in the streets of Lynwood, CA, in Los Angeles. (John Ochoa Photo by deanhammer.com for Electronic Music Conference)
Favourite drink: Over four years sober, but Red Bull + vodka and rum & Coke used to do the trick!
