DJ Soko

DJ Soko is still relatively young, but pioneers have already found odd ways to inject their influence into his craft. Meeting a Detroit rap icon lead to his first retail project, and that album earned kudos from the producer/DJ legend that sparked Soko’s interest in DJ’ing. At this rate, the Michigan native’s respect for his elders may earn him a spot alongside them.
He earned his stripes by DJing a hectic regimen of gigs in Detroit and elsewhere, as well as lending cuts for tracks featuring the likes of Guilty Simpson, MarvWon, Boog Brown, and Hassan Mackey. He also handled road DJ duties for buzzworthy group Clear Soul Forces at the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival.
Soko would eventually become the in-house DJ for Journalist 103 (The Left/Mello Music Group/Babygrande) and the duo teamed with producer Apollo Brown to form The Left. The group’s debut, The Gas Mask (Mello Music Group), garnered universal critical acclaim, including a nod on DJ Premier’s list of the year’s best albums. After The Left’s successful European tour with labelmate Oddisee that toured through several cities in France, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Denmark and Switzerland, Soko has already knocked out gigs throughout various parts of Canada as well as around the U.S. His limited edition vinyl for Mello Music Group’s 7 inch series which features Guilty Simpson, Apollo Brown, Gensu Dean, and Hassaan Mackey which has sold out online at Fat Beats . He is also prepping solo material that features Guilty Simpson, Apollo Brown, Finale, MarvWon,Hassaan Mackey, Kaimbr and other members of indie hip-hop’s elite. With each step, he plans to respect the past while cementing his own legacy.
“A DJ dictates the climate…..we’re meant to get shit poppin’ and help people enjoy themselves, but also to put people up on music that we feel passionate about, educate people on some shit they may or may not know of.”
