Jonny Cruz, a native of Puerto Rico with a passion for electronic music, is a versatile DJ and producer that is constantly exploring and pushing the boundaries of his craft. Jonny is also a man of many aliases, with a variety of releases over the musical spectrum dating all the way back to the late 1990's, when he was involved with the Puerto Rican drum & bass movement. By 2007 Jonny had started the collective ‘Identity’ which then went on to release numerous records on some of the most acclaimed drum & bass labels including Subtitles, Barcode and Ohm Resistance, while at the same time touring extensively worldwide.
In 2010 Jonny made the move to Berlin, a decision that would forever change the course of his career. He then linked up with the label Cocoon and released the dance floor smash ‘Dawn’s Highway’, in collaboration with his then studio partners Simon Wish & Lati. The track was on heavy rotation by many major players in the techno movement, which allowed Jonny to cement a place in the German and European club circuits. That same year Jonny also teamed up with producer Emerson Todd and made ‘The Kiwi & Coconut Pie EP’, which was released on Toronto-based Canadian label My Favorite Robot.
The 'Kiwi...' release enabled Jonny to meet Jared Simms, a relationship that would change not only Jonny's approach to his own music but result in a friendship that would eventually propel Jonny to become one of the MFR's core acts and take his career in a whole new direction.
Since then, Jonny has released and been featured on some of the best and most influential labels around such as Supernature, Poker Flat and Souvenir Music and made the leap into playing some of the house scene's most influential spots including Rioma Mexico City, Space Miami, La Santanera Playa del Carmen and the legendary Watergate in Berlin.
