THE BRONX - A Bronx teen is hoping to make his way to the top of the pop charts.

Max Perez, 14, goes by the name DJ Devan Ibiza, a combination of his middle name and the Spanish party island known for its nightlife. Perez first became interested in music three years ago at his at-home recording studio, when his father, Maximino Perez, introduced him to the innovative touch screen mixer.

The up-and-coming DJ initially played small gigs at baby showers and birthdays, but the stages and crowds grew larger as word spread of his futuristic approach. Perez has since played at the Bronx Ball and Madison Square Garden, among other large venues.

DJ Ibiza is now working on his own beats and hopes to one day tour the world and perform at electronic music festivals.
