Being a good DJ is all about reading the crowd accurately, a talent that comes with experience. The crowd enters into a new world with my beats and I.

Origin of Name: When I was 6 years old, I almost died after swallowing my grandmother’s prescription pills. I know—sad story. Pills in Spanish [translates to] pastilla. After that incident, everyone in the neighborhood started calling me “pastilla” as a joke. I took out the “s” and decided it would be a good DJ name after all: La Patilla.
Weapon of Choice: Serato, Ableton and pineapples.
Source of Power: Steve Angello, Carl Cox and a few others.
