Playing at Lollapalooza in Chicago shone out as Deorro's most memorable event of 2019. “It was a goal of mine for a long time to play there, and I was so happy to be able to do it this year,” the bounce master tells DJ Mag. He's spent a massive amount of time in the studio this year, working on his new radio show, and in his own words “preparing for my wedding!”.

Deorro is one of those accomplished types that started DJing at the early age of 14 and his passion for the craft erupted in 2012 when his remix of Chuckie's 'Make Some Noise' threw him into the spotlight. Collaborations with the likes of Steve Aoki, Diplo, Laidback Luke and R3HAB have helped to keep the burn going for the loved-up DJ.

With 2020 beckoning, Deorro plans to keep the hot releases coming. “I have a Latin EP in the works, which will include lots of genres,” he says about the high-energy vibes he'll be sprinkling over forthcoming singles.
