With a foundation in Salsa, Hip Hop and Electronica, Orion's Repertoire has expanded to include the toughest dancehall riddims, such as Cumbia and Merengue, Mash-ups, Bhangra, Baile Funk, Dubstep, Jazz Minimal Techno, Bassline, and most things in between. He has rejected filler in favor of the finest club-floor knockouts. He has had the pleasure of DJ'ing for Yo Majesty at Coachella 2008. He has also played alongside Klever, Pase Rock, Queen Majesty and many more. Besides being a DJ, he has founded the Peligrosa All-stars, Austin's Premier Latin DJ Crew, which has been romping the Music Venues and festivals in Texas with DJ Orion as always the crowd pumper and party starter.
