A Rave in the Middle of a Bullfight

Super DJ Wally Callerio gets his deep-house groove on

Yet his story may have an element of beginner's luck. His other Dufflebag releases—two of his own singles and nine of other DJ/producers—have done well, but they didn't come close to being hits. That stings Callerio, but it takes second place to the pure pleasure of creating that exotic, jazzy house beat. "After taking time off, I had to rediscover the roots of what I love," he says. A brilliant excuse for isolating yourself in a studio for a year—the best reason, really, for becoming a mad scientist/DJ.
