Rooted in hip-hop and flared with pop, DC-native Chooky has been DJing and producing dance music since 2011. With a handful of originals and official remixes released under labels including Strictly Rhythm, Rot10, Sweet Shop Records, Subdrive, and Big Vision, Chooky sheds an alternative, electronic light over his already established world of hip-hop and pop. He has received support from key players including Benny Benassi, Markus Schulz, 12th Planet, Sazon Booya, Tittsworth, and Dave Nada amongst others. Influenced by this generation’s rising music genre of house, dubstep and drum & bass, Chooky feeds off the energy created by the culture of the music. From millions of pulsing hands at music festivals, to the raw passion seen at small venues, Chooky wants to experience it all.
Starting his musical career as a drummer at the age of 6 and quickly moving into the studio as a producer and engineer, Chooky has proven himself fit to explore most any musical landscape. After 5+ years of producing for local artists, Chooky has started mixing tracks for shows that he is headlining himself. Chooky’s latest mixes are dance-inspired, drawing from his work in the hip-hop industry and his appreciation for electronic music compositions.
