Capturing and cultivating good music and a good vibe has always been the focus of San Diego resident Mr. Blow (aka J.Blow aka Joe Blow). Originally hailing from Milwaukee – Mr. Blow is a DJ, producer and all-around music fanatic with a 15+ year journey behind him. With a background in art & design, he takes the same meticulous approach to his musical endeavors – striving to create the perfect mix of elements for a beautiful composition. His musical inspiration has been cut from the fabric of the originators, from hiphop to funk and soul. When you see him, you will often hear different genres that have influenced him blended together in a patchwork. He prides himself in being a tastemaker as well as a great party thrower, often both in balance. He’s as comfortable in a club creating a house party vibe as he is in the lounges pulling out soulful cuts and forgotten should-be classics.
Mr. Blow was an instrumental part in the last days of San Diego’s legendary venue Landlord Jim’s (Saturday nights) as well as part of the internet radio show Steady Crushin on the now defunct Earthbound Radio. He’s also made guest appearances on other radio shows (91.7 WMSE Milwaukee and The Lab Mixshow), contributed productions to many projects for up and coming MCs and spearheaded multiple residencies of different vibes from the midwest to the west coast.
While also an avid music maker, Mr. Blow is continuously crafting edits and original pieces to weave into his DJ sets. Currently, he is working on a new solo project to be released in 2014 as well as DJing weekly throughout San Diego, California. Whether he is moving people on the dance floor, mining for musical treats or crafting his own musical concoctions, Mr. Blow is always there to spread the gospel of good funky music… and he is hungry for more.
