Louie Vega is a Grammy-winning house DJ and producer.
Louie Vega is a Puerto Rican House DJ legend
Vega is a Puerto Rican New Yorker from the Bronx. His father was a Jazz saxophonist. New York Salsa legend Héctor Lavoe was Vega’s uncle.
Louie came up in NYC’s seminal 1980s club scene. He worked at places like Studio 54, Devil’s Nest, Hearthrob, Roseland, and the Palladium. Louie was just a kid then so people used to call him “Little Louie Vega.” Now it’s more like Giant Louie Vega.
Louie hit the big time when he helped produce Marc Anthony’s “Ride on the Rhythm” (1991).
“Ride on the Rhythm” put both artists on the map. After opening for Tito Puente at Madison Square Garden, both Louie and Marc Anthony took over the map.
Vega has worked with great Pop, Soul, and Latin artists including Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross, Madonna, Tito Puente, Black Eyed Peas, and on and on. He’s been nominated four times, but Louie won a Grammy® for his remix of Curtis Mayfield’s “Superfly.”
Vega’s music is house and his parties are universal, but his sound always has a little Latin something.
