DJ Eddie One
DJ Eddie One made a career defining realization in 2002. The in-demand Los Angeles-based street promoter and co-owner of West Coast Record Pool saw the consolidation of the music business was on course to hurt his business, so he decided to redirect his focus. I was getting all this free vinyl from the labels that I was already servicing to all these DJs, he recalls. So I said, I might as well put it to work.
Since then, DJ Eddie One has established himself as a major DJ force in the Los Angeles area. He is the Mixshow Coordinator at KXOL Latino 96.3 FM and can be heard on the air Monday through Saturday 3pm-7pm In this capacity, Eddie One is able to reconnect to his Latino roots by speaking Spanglish on the air and playing a varierity on his mixes of Reggaeton, Hip Hop, Top 40, Bachata, Dance by going from Spanish to English back and forth he also aspires to be a program director a major radio station some day.
DJ Eddie Ones emergence as LAs premier DJ is truly remarkable. He was born in El Salvador and came to Los Angeles in 1989, when he was 11. His family came to escape his countrys civil war, and so that Eddie One would avoid being drafted when he turned 14. Los Angeles was like another world to Eddie One. He spoke no English and had never seen skyscrapers before. Music, however, remained a constant in his life. His parents played Cumbias, Merengue and Salsa, as well as such American stars as Steve Wonder. But it was Eddie Ones uncle who had the bigger musical influence by introducing him to Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Too $hort and Eazy-E. Even though Eddie One couldnt understand all of their lyrics at the time, he was blown away by the attitude and feel of the music. Eddie One had similar feelings toward house music, and 80′s rock.
