Back in May, Deorro shocked the dance music community by announcing he would retire from DJing at the end of 2014. In a recent interview, he helped clarify his reasons for indefinitely retiring from touring and DJing. He said, “Touring has blessed me with everything that I have...But now that I have everything I need, I also want to give the same thing to others...I’m going to replace myself with ten people that also want the same dream...Don’t get me wrong, I love to DJ, I’m gonna miss it. I’m probably gonna miss it two days after I go home but I’d rather miss DJing than my family.”

Some fans might be surprised that this year's DJ Mag Top 100 highest new entry (#19) would retire from DJing shortly after cementing himself as a dance music star. However, he's still going to produce music. Also, he will be mentoring the artists on his PandaFunk label.
