DJ Trajic

Real Name:
Carlos Gomez
Profile:
Chicago-based pioneer of 1990s hard house.

In 1985, Carlos “Kool Kutt” Gomez started DJing. In 1989, a friend persuaded Carlos to participate in a DJ battle which was being held at local teen club Triffany's; Carlos won the battle and was given his first club residency. During this residency, he had the opportunity to work alongside original Hot Mix 5 DJs: Mickey “Mixin” Oliver, Ralphie “The Razz” Rosario, Kenny “Jammin” Jason & Mario “Smokin” Diaz.

In the early '90s, Carlos teamed up with Chicago rap group O.C.U.; the members changed Carlos' stage name from “Kool Kutt” to "DJ Tragic". While working with O.C.U., he met his mentor, the late producer Peter Black. Soon after, Carlos assisted Peter on several albums including O.C.U's “Stronger Than The Mafia” and Krashman's “Black Circle”.

In 1992, Carlos veered away from the hip-hop scene and continued with his interest in dance music. He revised his stage name by replacing the “g” with a “j” and “DJ Trajic” was born – he started releasing records on Underground Construction in 1994 and the rest is history. Trajic went on to produce more than 100 records and numerous remixes for major artists.

In 2006, Trajic launched two digital download music labels in partnership with Beatport.com: Nemek Music Group releases the harder-type sound and has re-released much of Trajic's catalog through his Hard House Classics volumes. Plush Recordings releases genres like electro, tech house, fidgit, etc.
