Rafael Lopez - From COD Days To DJ Craze
09/02/2015

Rafael Lopez, who looks 25 but is actually just north of 30, understands there’s a confusion over EDM even though it is the world’s most popular music. Only oldsters like Neil Young are resisting the temptation to keep on thumpin’ in the free world. As Alf Alpha, Lopez has become arguably the Coachella Valley’s most popular DJ. DJ Day, who plays regularly at the Ace Hotel, has a couple great albums and big following in Europe. But Alph also tours and he always represents the 760 at Coachella.

Alf first played Coachella in 2010 at 3 a.m. at a silent disco. People were trying to sleep in the campgrounds, but others wanted to party all night. So Alf played for people wearing headphones and the only sound came from the dancers singing along to the music. He started playing the dance tents in 2011 and soon worked his way up to the big Sahara stage. He’s shared the Sahara with pop superstar David Guetta and Skrillex, who’s right up there with Tiesto, Calvin Harris and the duo that makes up Daft Punk as the biggest DJs of the decade.Rafael Lopez, who looks 25 but is actually just north of 30, understands there’s a confusion over EDM even though it is the world’s most popular music.
