DJ JON TUPAZ

One of the hottest DJs here in MANILA today is DJ JON TUPAZ who has a weekly music mix show on MAGIC 89.9 WTM entitled "THE 12" MIX by DJ JON TUPAZ" every Fridays from 9pm to 12mn. YUP!! I am lucky and honored to feature this Legendary DJ and head of one of MANILA's LEGENDARY MOBILE "PSYCHODECO" here on my little blog "The Doctor Is In". This is an exclusive blogpost about this ICON BEARER for Magic 89.9’s FRIDAY MAGIC MADNESS PARTY SERIES. Btw, I'll also be featuring "PSYCHODECO" in the future here in my blog so just stay tune okay. In 2004, 99.5RT gave him his own program which is CLUB 24K from 12:00nn to 1:00PM EVERY FRIDAYS and this was before sister station Magic 89.9 got him on the DJ rosters. Jonathan V. Tupaz aka. "DJ JON TUPAZ" started wayback 1986 as a Disc Jockey at HOTEL MIRADOR and from 1987-1989 he became the Head DJ of GUEZZ DISCO in Clarkfield, Pampanga. This lead onwards to being pirated to FACES Disco in Makati City as Head DJ at the height of the disco scene then from 1989 to its closure in 1994. He capitalized on his vast knowledge in music along with his personal collection of around 2000 pcs (and counting) of rare VINYL RECORDS ranging from New Wave , Jazz, 80's and early 90's disco. He also got into Ballroom Music Operations where he started a new trend in modern ballroom dancing then came latin, salsa, rumba, foxtrot, samba reggae etc. Wheew!! That's a music enthusiast indeed!! Well, I wanna THANK Miss Peachy Tupaz, wife of DJ Jon, for helping me out regarding the informations I'm giving you right now guys. THANKS Mam!!


DJ Jon Tupaz was the consistent 3 year undisputed champion in the art of mixing and scratching techniques DWTM 89.9 “Magic Mixes Battle of the Djs” which was held at the Araneta Coliseum, ULTRA, and Heartbeat Disco. Even DEAN ANREW of Manila Legendary New Wave Mobile EYEBALL DUB has given him high praises too. Definitely, these guys really know their stuffs. No "Wannabe DJ" thing I may say. He He He!! Having around 15 DJs under his wing personally trained by him, He had clients such as CLUB IBIZA in Bel Air, IN THE MOOD Malate and Galleria, THE SPIN (Kudos) at Makati Cinema Square, DAD'S Alabang, LA JOTA PATIO DE BAILE Greenhills to name a few. Hmmmp!! That's not few if you ask me. Well, but in the midst of ballroom, came TIPSY's Bar in Mile Long where he was able to spin his NEW WAVE COLLECTION to make the people travel back in time re-living the Corinthians Party Days. Wheew!! That's MEMORIES INDEED!! I, myself was able to attend twice back on those days and personally that was a helluvah NEW WAVE EXPERIENCE back then.


As the era of ballroom starting to fade, He still gets to play 80s music in special events, corporate parties ,and launchings using the Classic Vinyl Records which he specializes in. Until came such a time wherein that there was a venue that gave a special following for 80's classic disco and new wave music ---- that is PONANA in Libis Q.C in the year 2000. Then followed the stints/ regular gigs at PIER1 (Libis ,The fort, Morato, Roxas Blvd, Ortigas Home Depot) SHIRAZZ Salcedo Village, TEMPLE BAR Greenbelt.


In 1994, with his vast collection of music in different genres paved the way for him to come out with a series of CD collection. DJ Jon Tupaz also has come out with HIS OWN REMIXES in VINYL RECORD named "DANCE TRAXX" with a limited copy release for DJs only commercially in the U.S and in The Philippines. We will be featuring that "DANCE TRAXX" Vinyl compilation in the future which he made during those times. I think that's something to look forward to again guys. DJ Jon Tupaz' reputation and talent has preceded him and opened up for the concerts of MC Hammer, Kalapana, Mike Francis back in the 80’s, Sybil - in the 90s and Rick Astley in Manila in 2008 produced by DMC Philippines. Well, that's DJ JON TUPAZ....exclusively exposed here on "The Doctor Is In". He He He!!

Here's a NEW WAVE MIX from the archives of DJ Jon Tupaz which he made several years ago which was given to me by JON two months ago to be shared here in my blog. YUP!! Another PINOY NEW WAVE MIX here on "The Doctor Is In" which features the ORIGINAL PINOY NEW WAVE MIXES. I didn't make any TRACKLIST so that the MIX would create a little anticipation and surprise for you.

Here's DJ JON's message he gave me regarding this mix:

"No difference actually from the way i used to mix then and now. I dont use computers, effects or anything... im not a techie .... just plain old straight up mix. This mix was done straight from vinyl to recorder...... no practice, no effects,no editing... just straight mixing.... so please bear with me ....... also in this mix is my version of manual and the 80's way of scratching".


“I’m just all about the music. I’m here to share it with other music lovers. That’s just me.”
- DJ JON TUPAZ

I hope you like the NEW WAVE MIX by DJ JON TUPAZ the way I did.More Mixes to come from this great DJ in the future here in my blog so watch out for it. I wanna THANK the TUPAZ FAMILY namely DJ JON and MISS PEACHY for the trust they gave my blog for this blogpost of mine. I hope you guys liked my special "DJ JON TUPAZ" blogpost. THANKS for dropping by!! Well, for my finale, I'll leave you with this song from "THE CHURCH" which I will dedicate to both JON and PEACHY.

nice nice mix! i dig the playlist very much. the set really swept me back in time, more like listening to the original XB102 back in the 80s. best pick for me were The Cure's Let's Go To Bed (last time I heard this one was sa XB102 pa) and Madness' Michael Caine remix din.

kudos to DJ Jon Tupaz and to you docstir!

cheers!
