Jacobo “DJ Hakobo” Juarez began his DJ career 13 years ago, performing at Berkeley house parties. Love for a large variety of music has been a prime motivator throughout his career: He was a promotional pioneer in San Francisco's party scene and now owns and operates Som Bar. Below, he discusses the transition from DJ to full-time club owner, what futuristic music means to him, and whether he prefers Prince or Michael. DJ Hakobo opens for DJ Spinna this Saturday at the Mezzanine for the sixth annual Soul Slam party.
