DJ Nativus
DJ Nativus been DJing electronic dance music for over ten years and has held an FM radio show, a club residency, and his own weekly event in Austin. Recently, DJ Nativus has taken over Furry FM and serves as the owner and main DJ for that online station.

While his number one passion is trance music, he mixes progressive, hands up, hard dance, house, and maybe a little hardstyle. He is extremely familiar with the dance scene in Japan and will not disappoint fans of that culture. (Eurobeat anyone?)

With pride, he mixes without computer assistance and simply uses his ears and the groove of the crowd to maintain a solid mix. Prepare for a night filled with high energy.

DJ Melee Max
Melee Max DJ Set Logo
My name is Jay.Q ,but when I am behind the turntables my name is Melee Max.

My love for electronic music started back in 2008 when I was still shuffling at lunch time. I started DJing around 2009, but didn't get my first turntables until 2011. Since then I have been DJing at parties and events across the DFW area, and even started producing my own music. My favorite DJ once said "if you have never lost it on the dance floor; you can never find it behind the turntables." I have been living by those words ever since. Bringing the best in electronic from trance to house to even a little dub step!
