ROJO is a DJ from Pittsburgh, he says of his set for Pride month on WYEP, ” I put a lot of thought to what I was gonna play, I really wanted to encapsulate myself as a black queer artist here in the city and take you through a journey of the sounds that inspire me.” Listen as he takes us on an hour-long musical journey from his childhood roots in jazz, funk, and disco to the sounds of house, afro-beat, and techno.
