MEET OUR TEAM
Jesus Vivar, Chief Executive Officer
Launching his career in the city that never sleeps, New York-bred Jesus (DJ PM) Vivar has proven that crowd rocking is an art form.
Captivating the dancefloor with his hypnotic genre blends and precision sharp cuts, Jesus has honed his craft through residencies in some of New York City’s finest nightclubs, special guest appearances in Frankfurt, Germany, and the Virgin Islands, and private event performances, spanning fashion shows, movie premiers, award ceremonies, comedy shows, radio, television broadcast, fundraisers, festivals, marketing, and corporate events.
With an arsenal of music knowledge, an influential gritty city backdrop, and almost 20 years of live performance, professional DJ experience under his belt, it is no wonder Jesus has advanced his career to encompass original music and beat production. His acute ear for melodic blends and illustrious hits prompts him to reach beyond the conventional notion of genre blending, to explore sound creation stemming from Latin and other global influences, and to tap into his diverse musical repertoire from Breakbeats, House, R&B to Rock and Hip-hop.
Jesus continues to perform as DJ PM at private events and special guest appearances through his affiliate company, PureMixDJ.com. In addition to his passion for music, Jesus is a commercial real estate investor and an actor/model who has been featured on national broadcast media and marketing advertisements.
