Jimmie Gonzalez, known to many as “Speedy”, has remained in touch with his eclectic electronic music style which fuses underground dance music, cult cinema and his hometown Chicago roots. His "do what you dig" attitude and passion for detail has led him to DJ’ing across the globe, remixing and producing, film scoring, directing and most recently with his innovative VJ mix set CINEMA THERAPY.
Early on he identified with the darker side of electronic music mutating his sound into the sleazy hypnotic electro-techno that his listeners have come to expect. As if that weren't enough, these sounds were filtered through his love of horror films and grind house cinema which opened up the doors to his multi-sensory expressive future.
His recent DVD DJ Mix projects “The Colors of Darkness” and “Electro Euro-Trash” feature relentless pulsating techno over strategic rapid editing of classic hallucinatory and graphic exploitation euro-horror film sequences. The esoteric projects were hailed by both music and film fanzines such as URB MAGAZINE and Canada's horror film staple RUE MORGUE calling them "innovative" and "ahead of its time."
