Ralphi Rosario is a Grammy Nominated remixer; producer and founding member of the influential Chicago DJ group , The Hot Mix 5.   Because of his love for music and his desire to share it with others, Ralphi Rosario began spinning records for friends in the late 1970’s.  Almost a quarter century later, he still spins for larger crowds at massive parties all around the world.  As a member of the legendary group, The Hot Mix 5, he was a part of the #1 Radio show in Chicago on WBMX. The Hot Mix 5 were known all over the world for their turntable skills and unique style.    Ralphi’s crossover hit, “You Used to Hold Me” became an overnight classic that is still played today and is considered one of house music’s anthems.  Rosario continues to work as a DJ and remixer and has released several full-length albums. He has remixed tracks with some of the hottest names in music from Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Stevie Nicks, Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Madonna, and so many more.  This year he joins the Chosen Few DJs as one of the guests at this year’s Chosen Few Picnic & Festival.
