PZB

LAMP-Central-2-28-14

PZB began his love for music in classic setting performing as part of the California Young Musicians Orchestra. Unfortunately under financial circumstances he could not afford the lessons and equipment to continue that path. Frustrated but determined he began to explore new outlets for expressing his talents. With help from a dear friend and $150, PZB bought his first set of Turntables and mixer (2 belt driven Gemini 500s and a Gemini mixer) from there he would grow from Bedroom DJ to a rising force in LA’s local scene.

In 2009 PZB took a trip of a lifetime to Ibiza. He had the pleasure of learning from some of the greats in electronic music, such as James Zabiela, UMEK, Nima Gorji, Valentino Kanzyani, Matthew Hoag, Lottie, DJ Unique, and more. This gave PZB the tools to start performing at events and venues when he returned to Los Angeles, and throughout 2010 he established several succesful nights perfomring with local talents; Modus, Mark Faicol, January Black.

2011 was year that marked a transition for PZB when he perfomed his first ever set at Coachella on the The Energy Factory Stage. From there he would go on to perform at some LA’s premier clubs such as Exchange LA, Avalon, Dim Mak Studios supporting acts such as Captial Cities, Cassian, Justin Jay, Mystery Skulls and more. CBS’s listed him as one of LA’s Best DJs in 2012. PZB would also go on to perform festivals such as; Brownies & Lemonade Present: Camp Trill 2012, the Venice Music Crawl 2013 and Brokechella 2013.

As co-founder of the Los Angeles Music Project (LAMP), an independent record label, PZB has helped produce, acquire and mentor a plethora of rising local talent. Through those relationships he formed a partnership with a local producer to embark on the Brooks & Millar project. The duo have hit the ground running in 2014 and are planning to release an EP this summer.

Embarking on his return to Europe this year PZB plans to share the flavors of LA’s sounds and his newest projects with a host of awaiting fans. His first stop will be Kanegra Beach Festival on August 8th & 9th in Umag, Croatia. His calendar is also filling with stops planned in Italy, Southern Spain, and more.
