D.J. PerKucion / Bio

Born on the 10th of October, 1978 in the Bronx, N.Y. The Birth place of hip hop. Since his youth he has been surrounded by music from past and current generations. He was introduced to hip hop at an early age, hearing it on the streets, on LPs, inside the bodegas, shops, restaurants, subways, at the bus stop & on the corners of the city. The years spent in Dominican Republic, where he lived on and off up until the age of 11, would introduce him to Latin music. Growing up to the influences of artists like: Michael Jackson, Luke, BBD, Boyz 2 Men, Naughty-By-Nature, Boot Camp Clik, Big Daddy Kane, The Notorious BIG, 2 Pac, Dr. Dre, Snoop , Ice Cube, Ice-T, Cypress Hill, JD, The Dogg Pound, Nas, OutKast, Kinito, La Banda Gorda, Menudo, and many more...... would introduce him to a world where he could create any sound he could dream up. On returning back to the states permanently, he started to study and listin to DJs like Premier, Grandmaster Flash, Clue, Juice & Funkmaster Flex. Fascinated by the way they transitioned, from left to right and 1 track to another just plain out showin' off their skills on the 1's & 2's, and everything broken down to a science; he found his calling. As he got a deeper knowledge about the up bringing of hip hop & Latin Culture he started to mold into his own unique style! By age 15, he started to gather up equipment to throw parties with. Starting with 2 cd players, a JVC amp, and regular house speakers. It went well, he upgraded to 2 Gemini XL 500-II a couple years later. By this time D.J. PerKucion (Known back then as DJ Joka) moved to Orlando, FL and he started making mix-tapes, spinning at birthday parties for the neighbors, pool parties and more. Recognized for his skills and devotion, he started landing gigs at local bars and clubs, hosting and promoting numerous nights, the opportunity to work on a couple of original albums, and even started mixing and mastering his own tracks and for other well known artists.
