Bay Area native PZB began his love for music in a classic setting performing as part of the California Young Musicians Orchestra. Unfortunately under financial circumstances he could not continue to afford the lessons and equipment to continue the path. Frustrated but determined he began to explore new outlets for expressing his talents. With the help of a dear friend and $150, PZB bought his first set of turntables and mixer (2 belt driven Gemini 500’s and 2 channel mixer) from there he would grow from bedroom DJ to a rising force in LA’s local scene.
2011 was the year that marked a transition for PZB when he performed for the first time at Coachella on the Energy Factory Stage for Global Inheritance. From there he would go on to perform at some of LA’s premier clubs such as Exchange LA, Avalon, Dim Mak Studios supporting acts such as Captial Cities, Cassian, Justin Jay, Mystery Skulls and more. CBS’s listed him as one of LA’s Best DJs in 2012. In 2014 PZB took his talents to Croatia and had the opportunity to open for Matador at the Kanegra Beach Festival. A three day festival that also featured Kevin Saunderson, Stacey Pullen and Paco Osuna. In 2015 he performed at Lightning in a Bottle and became a resident for HushConcerts in Southern California playing regular dates on the Santa Monica Pier.
2016 has been probably the biggest year so far. This year has seen him play alongside Sacha Robotti, Manik, Guy J, Kraak & Smaak, Daedelus, Birdee, Miami Horror, Etnik, Nukid and most recently at Genius Loci Festival in Baja with Poolside, Gigamesh and the Desert Hearts Family. From pool parties to boat parties, club events and festivals PZB has been tearing up the dance floors this year so far.
For the last 3 years PZB has also been running the Los Angeles Music Project and PUZL Records alongside his business partner Alex Slater. LAMP is an independent record label and music blog that is dedicated to finding new and unsigned artists to help give them a platform for releasing their work. PUZL records is a full distribution label they recently launched in May to further support some of the artists on their label. Additionally he has been producing with Jacob Millar under the name of Brooks & Millar which saw a release last year on the label Perfect Driver.
