I’m DJ MUNDO, and my show is MUNDO UNDERGROUND, which is a specialty show.

How did you hear about KVRX and what made you want to do your show?

At first, I didn't know about KVRX, but I figured that UT had a radio station since most colleges do. It was not until my sophomore year in the spring semester that I found KVRX's website and started checking it out. I really liked it and thought it was really cool how students had their own shows on KVRX. Since I wasn't really part of any org here at UT, I felt like KVRX would be a really cool thing to be a part of because of how much I love music. I ended up going to one of their info sessions and decided to sign up to become a DJ!

What kind of music do you play on your show and what is its overall theme?

The music that I play on MUNDO UNDERGROUND is just rap. Rap is what I grew up listening to, besides cumbias, and it is the reason why I fell in love with music in general. The theme of my show is always different, it mostly depends on the playlist that I make for each show. I try to make each playlist have a different sound than the ones before. Every time I make a playlist, I'm always trying to have music that fits the tone of the other tracks in it. Another cool thing that I have been doing in my shows is playing rap from Mexico, where the underground scene is really cool. Not too long ago this semester I had a whole show in Spanish, which was really cool since that is my first language.

What is your favorite part of being a DJ?

My favorite part of being a DJ here at KVRX is the fact that I can play music that I really like a lot and other people can listen to it. I feel like sharing music that you like with others is really cool, which is why I always look forward to having my show on air. I still can't believe how all of Austin can tune into my show on their radios and listen to me play music. Another thing that I like about being a DJ is getting to know other DJs. There are two people in KVRX who helped me out whenever I had barely joined: Nieves (DJ Snow) and Hope (DJ Rainy). They were the first DJs that I met when I was in training and they were really cool with me, so shout out to them!

Who are your favorite artists and what are your favorite albums?

This has always been a hard question to answer because I have a lot of favorite artists and albums. One of the albums that is for sure in my top 5 is Get Ya Mind Correct (Chopped & Screwed) by Paul Wall and Chamillionaire. That was one of the first rap albums that I really liked a lot; I would always play it on my CD player when I was a kid. My other favorite albums are Ridin Dirty by UGK, Illmatic by Nas, Covert Coup by Curren$y, and The Unseen by Quasimoto. Some of my favorite artists are UGK, Scarface, Cypress Hill, Madlib, Big Pun, Nas, MF DOOM, N.E.R.D, Roc Marciano, and Cartel De Santa.
