Jose Massas (DJ Tito Massas)
1. What or whom inspired you to become a salsa DJ?
Going to salsa events, with and without live music, and hearing really bad Dj’s. This made me consider, that being a

5. What qualities must a song possess in order to make it to your playlist?
Depends on the occasion dance music or just enjoying it without dancing. In either case, the reaction of the people
is always crucial for me. In general, it should have good swing or cadence, afinque y sabrosa. It’s not want I want to
hear as a Dj, is what the people want
6. What other types of music do you like aside from this genre?

contemporary/modern salsa when it appeals to the public.

The opportunity to share my love and passion of Salsa with the world thru my unique style.
