need a spectacular DJ?? (we have 7)! 06.15.15  
Our Promises:

I AM NOT going to tell corny jokes on the mic
I AM NOT going to play trance at your wedding!
I AM NOT going to play desperate, crappy disco to try to “Please everyone”
I AM NOT GOING TO PLAY DESPERATE CRAPPY ANYTHING!
I AM NOT going to be an ego driven “artist” and only play what “I” want to hear
I AM NOT going to be a shitty wedding DJ!
I AM NOT going to play thug hip hop at your dinner (unless of course…)
I AM NOT going to play iPods/CDs


I AM gonna play VINYL (remember that format?)
I AM going to play the perfect music for the mood of the people in attendance
I AM going to be able to read the crowd and build the energy accordingly
I AM going to seemlessly blend from dinner to dance party
I AM going to make you dance your ass off
I AM going to make you laugh
I AM going to make you cry
I AM going to make your friends jealous.
I AM going to create lifelong memories…

Hopefully you can do the same for us!
The music that I play at any event is determined soley by the people in attendance. I can confidently cover the last 50 years of soul, jazz, funk, & rock. More recent stuff includes mainstream and underground 80's, 90's and current hip-hop, electronic, disco, house-party hits, and dance music of every variety.

Paying homage to artists like Afrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Flash, Z-Trip, DJ P, Jam Master Jay etc. THE HUMAN JUKEBOX (THJ) plays EVERYTHING! Funk / soul, & disco, rock & hip-hop, club classics, top 40, & electro all seamlessly blend together and bring a feverish energy to every event. Live remixing, and on the spot blends (or mash ups) can make the sets at times humorous and ridiculous because of the juxtaposition of the tracks that are used, but the people NEVER stop dancing! THJ doesn’t take himself or what he does too seriously, just the way in which he does it.

Having shared the stage worldwide with artists such as: Diplo, Fatboy Slim, DJ’s are not Rockstars, Z-Trip, DJ P, 2 Many Djs, Swamp, Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, Andy Smith (Portishead), Thievery Corporation, Jazzanova, Bebel Gilberto, NERD, Kelis, Eddie Veder (with Queens of The Stoneage), Groove Armada, Felix Da Housecat, The Rub DJs, etc. THE HUMAN JUKEBOX has gained the respect of booking agents, promoters, the press, and most importantly, the audience.

Mike Cruz’s skills on the ones-and-twos and his understated charm have led him to play gigs all over the world - from Jamaica, Bermuda, and the Bahamas, to back in LA at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery where he played for James Franco. He has also played private estates, launch events, the Oh Joy! brunch for Target, Steven Alan in Los Feliz, an Ashley Paige runway event at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, poolside at the Standard Hotel Sunset, an HBO curated event at Marvimon, the legendary “Doin’ In the Park,” and held down a residency with Nosaj Thing at the renowned "Crosby," just to name a few. Mike's college radio show on KUCI 88.9 FM was revered by the underground & had the unique distinction of being one of the only Hip Hop radio shows at the time to have Bloc Party, of Montreal, Broken Social Scene, Tim Kasher, The Notwist, Cut Copy, LCD Soundsystem, and Ratatat on its playlists. Being exposed to so much music & interviewing artists including The Jungle Brothers, People Under the Stairs, & Justin Bua has guided his career and given him a unique perspective. We are so stoked to call him a friend, collaborator, and colleague... all of us here at the Flashdance couldn't feel more lucky.
