Juliet Mendoza was born in the city of Angels, we can say her musical background began before she was even born. Having parents with extended musical back rounds ,one can only imagine that Juliet would genetically inherit the love of music.

Now deep into the rabbit hole of Djing, Juliet’s love for the music takes us back to the mid 90’s, house scene. A regular in LA house clubs, such as the Arena and Carnival. By her early 20’s she became a well-known House Dancer in the L.A. underground scene, attending just about every underground house party, She found herself working as part of the promotions street team for one of the biggest electronic music promotional companies of its time, “Go Ventures”, who put on festivals such as: Monster Massive, Together As One, & The Love Festival (LA)(LV)(HI)(CO).

Also a Core Member of the organization “Open House” which gives the community a creative shelter where the knowledge of house dance, music philosophy and club culture is shared in a dance session environment.

She is deeply rooted and connected to LA house music culture, naturally gravitated to the records that inspired her to Dj. with residencies at nights such as “Thick”(LA), “Open House” (LA), and “FlyBall”(LA) “House on the Eastside”(LA) & “Local Love” (LA) she is also a resident of her own night “One Hundred”(LA). There is no doubt that Juliet is a truly driven ambassador to the house music movement.
