Best Latin DJ (2010)

DJ Kyko

Miguel Morales (a.k.a. DJ Kyko) is down with downtown's Latin dance scene. Almost every weekend, you can find the 27-year-old pulling spin shifts in some of the hottest clubs situated in our city's central core, usually moving more bumpers than a body shop with his high-energy style. On Fridays, he serves as selectah during PHX Nightclub's weekly Latin night, masterfully mixing up cumbias, reggaetón, and hip-hop. Then it's on to Sky Lounge, where Morales spends his Saturday evenings raining tempestuous tracks from an elevated glass booth for slews of screaming señoritas, followed by his Sunday session waxing out reggaetón and hip-hop with Power 98.3's DJ Villin at Cheetahs. Local Latinos aren't the only ones going loco over Morales' mixes, as he regularly visits the clubs of Rocky Point and Ensenada during spring break or the occasional weekend when he ain't ripping up the record decks downtown. During one south-of-the-border visit a few years back, he even got a chance to provide the backing beats for notorious Oakland rapper Too $hort. And if Shorty the Pimp is a fan, then Morales most definitely has some skills.
