Versatile, Accompished, Legendary, are just a few adjectives that
describe Jonathan Cruz aka DJ SHORTKUT. Driven by passion for every
genre of music, Shortkut began his career as a mobile sound-system,
progressing on to competing in World DJ Championships and establishing
himself as the consummate professional DJ.
Shortkut is a member of 3 of the most influential DJ crews in history:
The Invisibl Skratch Piklz, World Famous Beat Junkies and Triple
Threat DJs. A seasoned veteran in battle DJ competitions, he is
responsible for creat- ing some of the most influential turntable
routines of all time, literally birthing new techniques to the
turntab- list culture.
Kristian Hernandez has rocked dance floors across the globe from
Sydney to Paris, London to New York, Barcelona to Tokyo and everywhere
in between. Equally at ease playing for small crowds in underground
circuits or amphitheatres filled with tens of thousands of people, one
thing stands true: he knows just how to make a body move.
Incessant travels & immersion into diverse cultures both practically &
musically has refined Kristian’s understanding of the inherent
language of the beat: that it is universal & runs deep into the human
psyche. It is no surprise then that his musical tastes span a
multitude of genres & forms where he has parlayed his early days in
Afro Latin rhythms, Jazz subdivisions, Funk meters, Soul melodies &
hip-hop culture into fluency with more expansive sounds such as the
beats of House, the etherealness of World music, the excess of Breaks,
the freeform of jazz, the heat latin grooves & the surge of drum n’
