Jaclyn Desantis

Jaclyn started DJing in 1996 when she was just 16 years old in her hometown of New York. Early influences consisted of house music pioneers such as Larry Heard (aka Mr Fingers), Herbert, Kevin Saunderson, Lil Louis, Dj Sneak, King Britt, DJ Duke, Jeno and many more. Growing up in NY, deep house music took a hold on Jaclyn at a young age like no other genre of music ever has since. When DeSantis was 20 years old, she moved to Brooklyn where she became apart of a Deep House Collective called FSR (Funky Soul Rebels) who threw underground parties in NY for some years. She has played in numerous cities in Spain, such as Madrid, La Coruña, Asturias, Santiago, Vigo, and at the infamous Moog in Barcelona.
In 2003 Jaclyn moved to California and took a short hiatus from Djing. She returned a few years later, inspired by Burning Man and the outdoor festival circuit where she became influenced by deep, throbbing, wompy bass, and a fusion of old & new sounds. Jaclyn loves weaving stories with her sets and is passionate about making people shake their booties.
