DJ Yonny

Real Name:
Jonathan Ávila
b. 17 May 1983 in Queens, New York, USA

DJ Yonny is an up and coming force in entertainment business. He doesn't stick to the norm, as showcased by the bulk of his resume and accomplishments. A DJ who began as a competition turntablist, this 30 year old NY native had his roots in hip hop but has blazed a path onto the scene of house music . His relentless work ethic has scored him national club appearances, an international tour, and a radio career in the largest market in the US.

In less than five years, Yonny has made his mark in the New York City radio market, from producing a top rated morning and mix show on Power 105 and Pulse 87 to being a top Dj on the new 92.3 NOW where he spins live for over 4 million listeners every week on the Weekend Rollout on Fridays as well as the Friday night fix and Saturday night dance factory.

But Yonny doesn't limit himself to one facet of the music industry. Besides infusing his signature scratching capabilities into his sets Yonny is also a gifted producer. The mixmaster has been called on by the likes of singers Nina Sky to craft beats for their songs "The Other Side", "You Ain't Got It.”,and "Never Look Back." Their dynamic in the studio landed him the spot as the duo's worldwide tour DJ in 2010. Yonny’s skills as a remixer were so in demand that he was invited to become part of world’s largest remix crew The Crooklyn Clan. From original studio projects to personal remixes, Yonny's songs are heard from dance floors to iPods across the world.

Yonny's two latest compilations are not to be missed This Is My House and This Is Still My House – are mixes centered on the heart and soul of house music. These efforts have earned him accolades as Best House DJ at the 2010 Latin Mixx Awards and Mixtape of the Year at the 2011 Latin Mixx Awards, as well as residencies in Chicago, Los Angeles, Canada and Miami.

DJ Yonny isn’t satisfied with making and playing the music that makes you move. Watch him as he makes his first appearances starting this November on the TV in your living room.
