I covered this guy a few weeks back and we were the first ones to get him on blogosphere.
Then our homie Caballo tells me that his missus knows the dude and he’s an actor and so I ask the dude himself what’s the score man and here’s what he said:
First of all thanks for your support man….My name is Juan Pablo Shuk therefore jpshuk, I am from Bogota Colombia, and basically I started spinning records, by accident.
My father, Hungarian jajaj, had a big collection of old, classical salsa. Fania, Tito Puentes, Mon Rivera and so many more. I spinned some records at a party and since than thats my main line.
However I am an actor, and I do this for fun. At a certain point I wanted to edit some songs I liked, and I started practicing one year ago, with Acid from Sony, I downloaded as many free loops I could find in the web, and started cooking. By the way thanks for the cumbia loops, which I used in the last song, I found them in the Generation Bass page.
I am not a musician or consider myself a dj, but here I am learning… Big influences are New York in the early and mid 90s, where I lived, worked and party a lot. I resently found cumbia, ironically here in colombia we say, is where cumbia was born. Dont tell a mexican or an Argentinian I said so. jajajja…
Right on man and you know what I love my Mexican and Argentinean homies’ but even I gotta say I got into CUMBIA back in the late 80’s through the COLOMBIAN CONNECTION!!!
Just like the blues began in Africa, there’s no denying that Cumbia was born in Colombia!!!
No watch him act…lmao…sorry Juan to embarass you..we got Colombian A-list Actor establishment in da house!!
