Derrick de Mayo, aka Dj Dstrukt is a San Jose, CA native that established a reputation in the local turntablist scene in the year 2000. He relocated to Los Angeles in 2005 to continue his career in music. Within the first year of living in southern California, he was able to land a sponsorship with a well-respected street wear clothing brand, Acrylick Clothing. As soon as Acrylick Clothing saw the potential in his work, they coined him to be the official DJ for their brand. After releasing numerous mixtapes and DJing multiple venues up and down California, DJ Dstrukt was offered a chance to tour the U.S & Canada in the latter part of 2008. Like any ordinary 23 year old, he took the offer to explore the major cities outside his comfort zone. Not too long after tour, a call from King Tech of The World Famous Wake Up Show, opened a door of opportunity to produce mixes on a daily basis. From touring to working, DJing nightclubs, producing shows for a world renowned radio show, DJ Dstrukt started to build his name through his passion for music.
Take a look back over the last 20 years of San Francisco DJ culture and Mei-Lwun's name continues to pop up at the forefront of many music movements. From humble early 90's Santa Cruz beach raves and San Francisco warehouse parties through Soulstice and his now classic mashups in the early '00 to todays technologically advance live remixing style of djing, Mei-Lwun has managed not only to stay relevant but to push the envelop of djing, dance music and technology.
House, Hip-Hop, Indy or all of the above and everything in between Dj Mei-Lwun has played with Djs and musicians like Calvin Harris, Mix Master Mike, Karmin, Pharsyde, Dj AM, LL Cool J, Grand Master Flash, B.O.B., Block Party, Gym Class Heros, Biz Markie, Them Jeans, Spyder, Paul Okenfold and more. Left to his own devices Mei-Lwun will weave together epic long dj sets that mix together a bit of everything keeping the crowd not only partying but on their toes.
