Steven Lee Moya

Music for the discerning ear

Since 2006, Steven Lee Moya has showcased his constantly evolving selection of Afro-Latin, Funk, Soul, R&B, and House music at San Antonio’s most notable events and downtown cocktail bars.

Some career highlights have included the official San Antonio Spurs 2014 Championship team after party, resident DJ for Echale! Latino Music Series presented by Red Bull Panamérika, host of Havana Hi-Fi at Hotel Havana in downtown San Antonio and opening for Brown Sabbath at the famous Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip.




Adrian Quesada: Brownout/Ocote Soul Sounds/Level One Sound

“In a DJ culture infatuated with the past, SLM has deep respect for the history of music and is a purveyor of dusty grooves - but what makes him even more relevant is his untiring support of contemporary artists and his constant search for something new.”

Christopher Galvan: Krtu 91.7fm San Antonio

“Steven’s background as a musician and knowledge of music structure has greatly influenced his style as a DJ. He understands what most DJs do not: selecting/curating quality music comes first and foremost, do that and everything else falls into place.”

Leonard Trujillo: House Nation/ Ksym 90.1fm San Antonio

"Steven Lee Moya has been one of the innovators of soul music in San Antonio for the past 4 years and shows no signs of slowing down. He has a clear vision of what needs to be done musically and has the knowledge and expertise to get the job done.”

Marcos Garcia aka Chico Mann: Antibalas/Chico Mann

“Simply put, SLM is a tastemaker.”

Martin Perna: Antibalas/Ocote Soul Sounds

“SLM holds it down strong in San Antonio and beyond. I have never known him to disappoint.”
