Get Well

DJ Camacho

One of your Club section’s all-time favorite NYC-area spinners, DJ Camacho, has long been ill, suffering from diabetes, hypertension and their side effects. (We can hazily remember him spinning fab, Jersey-style deep house at the old Wild Pitch parties back in the ’80s.) But now, according to his friends at the Underground Network, things have gone from bad to worse veteran jock. Not only has he suffered three heart attacks in the past three months, but he’s lost his apartment, and has to relocate his belongings—studio equipment, tons of records and undoubtedly plenty of mementos chronicling the story of New York’s house scene—into storage. His pals are trying to raise funds to aid with his health- and eviction-related expenses; you can e-mail Leslie Jeudy at for more info on that. Alternately, you could just send a card, flowers or whatever to St. Barnabas Medical Center in New Jersey, where he’s currently recovering in fair condition. Here’s the info for that:
