Hailing from a small town in Northern California Mathew Catalan aka DJ Rufio's obsession for music started at an early age. As a kid he would always have blank tapes on hand to record his favorite tracks off the radio, in middle school he was obsessed with making mix cd's for his friends that used up as much of the 80 minutes of allotted time as possible, and once in high school his obsession with audio gear and big speakers naturally led to him scrapping together $900 from his minimum wage summer job and getting his set of turntables.
"There was no one who wanted to teach me, so I got tired of waiting and decided to teach myself how to mix. It's something I'm actually incredibly proud of, I have my own mixing style that is 100% my own and I'm not just a carbon copy of another DJ."
Now, over a decade after rocking his first event, Rufio has spun at venues across the US from SF, NYC, to Los Angeles. Residing in the Bay Area now, DJ Rufio has spun at numerous clubs and private events.
"I like mixing it up, I don't want to be a 'one genre' DJ, I like the challenge of rocking a club one night, and doing a high end wedding the next, it's a completely different world and they're both amazing in their own ways. It all comes back to the music and your ability to connect with a crowd via said music. There's nothing more rewarding to me than working hard on my own edits/remixes of songs, and then playing them in my sets and seeing the crowd's energy when they respond to it, it makes what I do worth all the hard work it has taken me to get to this point."
