Known for his unique, far-reaching DJ sets and mix CD’s, Derek Russo, aka DJ Russo, is one of Colorado’s best DJ’s. Not limited to one genre, Russo rocks big clubs, outdoor mutli-bill stages and intimate venues with an amazing selection of music ranging from gritty funk, downtempo, hip hop and soul, to dance party house, disco and electro, to experimental electronica and dubstep.
