DJ JKino, born and raised in the city of Los Angeles, California. A first generation Filipino whose love for music started as a young kid in the mid 80s listening to old school hip hop, house, and R&B classics his older cousins would play on their boom box. Influenced by local LA radio air waves and turntablist culture, DJ JKino developed a tasteful ear, always on top of his music selection, playing the “feel good” sounds that keep the people moving on the dance floor.
In 2014, DJ JKino elevated his career by further developing his knowledge in music production under the mentorship of DJ Revolution, DJ Sir Marcus, and DJ Buck at the Scratch DJ Academy in LA. After completing the academy, he applied his new found skill in creating his own remixes, mashups, beats, and sounds. Having the music production education under his belt is one of the assets that separate DJ JKino from the average.
With 15+ years of experience, DJ JKino has played for weddings, special events, charity events, debuts, night clubs, holiday parties, school functions, independent movie premiers, and corporate events. His open format style never disappoints. There is no party too small or too big for this DJ. His love and passion for music clearly is expressed when he is behind the decks. The fulfillment of people vibing to DJ JKino’s set brings great energy to any party. ”Love what you do and never work a day in your life.”
DJ JKino currently is the resident DJ & MC for White Rabbit Truck and The BLVD Hotel and Spa.
