DJ Crespo Is About "Dance Without Drugs"

DJ Crespo is well-rounded. The Miami-via-Chicago DJ not only studied nursing at Florida State University, he's also passionate about dance music. He's shared the booth with everyone from Skrillex to Avicii, Afrojack to Steve Aoki and performed at Life in Color and Orlando's Electric Daisy Carnival.

Though he's got the hearts and ears of the college crowd, he's playing music for everyone, encouraging movement and dance in the club. His first original single, MOJO, released with fellow DJ Landis and out on Cr2 Records, made it to Beatport's progressive charts top 25 just this year. Crespo is going to be onstage tonight with Bingo Balls at Gryphon at the Hard Rock. We spoke with him about Hardwell, EDC, and the infamous Molly.
