Kevin "Pills" Montavo

Position: Manager 
Location: New York, NY

A thought leader in every sense of the word, Kevin “Pills” Montano began promoting Hispanic DJs since the early ‘90s. Given his vision of the impact that DJs hold on the music industry, Kevin teamed up with his cousin, the late Jason “DJ Threat” Campbell and began to explore the untapped marketing opportunities these musical innovators held. 

Kevin and his cousin became an unstoppable force to be reckoned with, forming a DJ crew known as The Turntable Assassins. Today the crew consists of over 35 DJs nationwide. Forming the Turntable Assassins provided the ideal conduit for guiding and educating the young and talented DJs in the industry. Given the fast-paced growth of DJ coalitions and their respective marketing opportunities on the horizon, Kevin and Jason created The Latin Mixx Awards in 2001, an outlet of educating and recognizing the best Latino DJs in the industry. In 2006 Kevin formed Creative Media Group, a full-service marketing agency that specializes in connecting with the Latino consumer. This year marks the 10th Annual Latin Mixx Conference & DJ Choice Awards and Kevin continues to lead the charge of this empire built to emphasize leadership and success.
