Emil ‘DJ Ear Monster’ Bebla:
“It all started in August of 1981… I did my first gig as a prank to prove to one of my friends that I could become a DJ, if I set my mind to it… Needless to say, I fell in love with it and the rest was history”.” I DJ’ed in the hottest clubs in the Chicago Area, and met some really cool cats, including Frankie Knuckles, Farley “Jackmaster Funk” Kieth, Kenny “Jamin” Jason and Colonel Abrams”. He was scouted by a radio station executive and was offered his first radio show at WCRX as a guest DJ. He also won numerous local DJ competitions.
At the age of 19, Emil was one of the first DJ’s to play early forms of House Music in his sets on the radio DJ Mix Shows on WBMX, WGCI, WCRX and WBBM, where he was a regular guest DJ.
In August of 1984, he moved to San Francisco Bay Area and established a mobile DJ company and spent the next 17 years playing in dozens of various clubs and events. Emil was also the resident DJ at Baja Cantina and Nightclub – one of the hottest clubs in San Jose, CA.
In 2012, while continuing to make guest DJ appearances in various clubs in SF, San Jose, Las Vegas and LA area which is my true passion, I decided to hook up with Ninef ‘Musicman’ Arsanos and establish ‘Ear Monsterz’”. Emil describes Ear Monsterz as, “a group made up of a DJ and a Musician creating and producing dance music featuring various vocalists”. We have also since added the talents of Singer/Songwriter/Musician/Producer, Chereen Melody Givargis
There is only one goal for Ear Monsterz – to continue to evolve dance music and take it to new heights! “We collaborate with various DJ’s and musicians to continuously create new beats and spin them in night clubs around the world”, said Emil as he was preparing his next Monthly Mix Set for his Podcast.
