Late Night Radio comes to The Ogden for his long-awaited return on November 20th. Joined by the infamous Michael Menert, Bad Snacks, Def3, and Kaptain, the electro-funk DJ is a local favorite and never fails to put on a blast of a show every time. The budding producer and DJ, who’s real name is Alex Medellin, grew up around music, attending church and experiencing live music from a very young age. Gospel progressions, hip-hop, and funk sounds have played a huge role in influencing Medellin’s sound.
The multi-faceted and genre-bending DJ brings a fusion of live instrumentation plus the more electronic elements which combine to create sets of pure magic. We sat down with the artist to chat about his upcoming Ogden show in Denver! Check it out below.
