“In 1991, with the help of Felix Cutillo, the owner of Boston Beat at the time, Willie was given his first real club gig at Las Brisas, a Colombian Sunday Night. Willie mentions, “You might say that Felix is the one person responsible for getting my career off the ground.” When asked what was the single most memorable gig Willie had ever played at, Willie said, “ My whole career as a DJ has been really exciting. But if I have to recall one of the most memorable gigs, I'd have to say it was a couple of years ago. During a Labor Day weekend, I was spinning at the Roxy nightclub during a performance of Grupo Mania and Los Hermanos Rosario. It was memorable not because of me DJing, but because of the whole atmosphere. Everything seemed to come together just right, it was incredible. If you were there that night, you would know what I'm talking about.”
El Gordito De Oro acknowledges a few people who have impacted his career: Martin Vasquez “El Hombre Crusero”, JJ Boston, German Velásquez, Gustavo Tamayo, Ray Torres, D-Nice, Luis Medina and DJ Rip Hernandez, who he calls his partner in crime. Willie says, “ I really need to thank my mom, younger brothers and older sister. They've supported me in my career decision. Who knew it was going to last this long? “Willie has a myriad of clubs he has performed at. Most notably are: M-80, Europa, Latin Quarter @ the Roxy and Noches Colombianas to name a few. Willie adds, “Trust me, we'd be here for hours if I were to mention every club I've had the pleasure of working at.” A lot of Willie's career has been influenced by the Boston’s Colombian scene. Willie says “My longest stay at a club has been a Colombian Club. I have DJ’s at La Makina in Revere for 7 years. I've also worked at Cali Pachangero and did radio work on a show called Colombia En Vivo.” The veteran DJ believes in trying new things. He says, “A DJ isn't a DJ if he doesn't change with the times. You can't be stuck doing the same routine over & over again. You have to improvise and keep it fresh.”
At present 2003-2005, Willie spins music at El Copa, Club Mega, does guest spots at a couple of other venues and spins live for a mix show on La Mega. Willie is on the move. As his focus in the music business shifts, he is getting deeper into the production side of things. He mentions “I'm already taking my career to the next step, doing remixes and promoting for groups. But don't worry, I'm not done DJing quite yet. I'm now just catching my second wind, and it will be a while before I stop spinning music.” While Willie moves forward with his next project, he looks to impart some advice to the next generation of DJs. With a lot of humility, Willie advises, “One piece of advice to all the young DJ's out there. DJing can be a very fruitful career if you always keep it new. Don't be a follower, be an innovator. Create the atmosphere, and make people want to follow you from club to club. Don't Backstab or burn any bridges and keep a cool head.”
