INZO is Chicago’s next up and coming DJ. If you’re one of those people who are into all types of EDM, INZO is your guy. This uprising DJ/producer creates solid vibes that range from melodic house to bumpin’ bangers. Think of him as a mix between The Chainsmokers and DVBBS. Yeah, it’s that good
“I have been playing music since I was 4, but didn’t start doing any type of regular producing until I was 19. I used to go to the studio that college had for students to use, back when I used to go to Loyola. I would skip class sometimes and just go there all day instead, teaching myself how to do and use everything. It was only a matter of time that I realized I didn’t like anything I was studying, and needed to pursue my love & passion for music.”
After realizing this, INZO quit school at Loyola to pursue his dream. Being the DJ that he is, he obviously has several muses that inspire his work, specifically The Above & Beyond, The Chainsmokers, Porter Robinson, Drezo, The Naked and Famous, Angels & Airwaves, Deadmau5, Skrillex, Ilan Bluestone, Kaskade, and Jai Wolf.
“Considering I’ve released different genres and am still producing different genres of EDM, it’s definitely difficult to put myself into one genre. I guess if I had to pick one, I’d go with progressive. But other might put me in another.”
Being roommates with Milk N’ Cooks definitely helps his rise to Chicago’s EDM scene, but the support he’s received from other artists such as 3LAU, GoodSex, Stratus, and most importantly, his fans, has been his drive towards success.
“I will reach out to many people on my social pages and do a good deal of promotion via social media. I’ve also become close friends with Milk N’ Cooks, who are now my roommates, and they’ve already established themselves in the music scene everywhere… not just Chicago. So they’ve helped me with some exposure out here in Chicago by helping set up some DJ gigs, as well as connecting me with fellow artists, producers, and vocalists. I have also made many friends out in the Chicago music, service and entertainment industry who have helped with all aspects of support and exposure.”
Ever the perfectionist, sometimes he hits some bumpy roads, but it’s nothing that he can’t deal with.
INZO has a lot of music that is to be released within the next few months with collaborations featuring Stratus and Milk N’ Cooks, so be sure to follow his Soundcloud and keep up with his latest hits.
