He’s a member of the DMV’s most legendary DJ crew, El Combo Letal. He’s an official DJ for MIGO Productions; one of the promotion kings of the DC metropolitan area, and later this year he will be touring with Maravilla inc. You can hear him mix live on El Zol 107.9 fm, and he has established working relationships with some of Latin music’s biggest names. Now after more than a decade of working in the industry, Nelson Escobar – better known as DJ Xplosive ”El Arma Letal” – has a laundry list of impressive accomplishments and is nowhere near done!
Starting out in the deejaying game at the young age of twelve years old, Xplosive always had a profound passion for music – and it was exactly that love that motivated him to buy his first set of deejaying equipment and start practicing how to mix. Day after day, night after night, he put in the work to ensure his talent was never anything less than perfect. Xplosive learned very quickly that he wanted to do much more than spin at house parties, and knew that one day he wanted to make this his career.
Luckily for us, his ability to spin is truly remarkable, so getting noticed by local venues wasn’t much of a problem for the up-and-coming deejay. After breaking onto the club scene when he was only 16 years old, Xplosive proved himself to local big shots DJ Joe and DJ Travieso, earning himself a spot in the D.C.’s newly-founded deejay crew, El Combo Letal. He would also later become one of MIGO Production’s official deejays, and a member of the New York-based deejay crew The Takedown DJs. In 2008 he let his talent to speak volumes about who he is, allowing him to make his biggest leap to date by joining El Zol 107.9 fm.
Keeping his eye on the prize and never stopping to rest for a single second, Xplosive hopes to one day win an award at the Latin Mixx Awards and plans on reaching new audiences outside the D.C. area in the coming year. With his ravenous hunger to reach the top of the industry, it is clear that no obstacle will prove too difficult for this determined yo
