Urban Jungle, by Aphrodite. A 16-track collection of breaks, hip hop beats and good old drum and bass. This was the beginning of a life-long love affair with dance music. The metaphorical seed was planted as an older brother handed this to a young man. About a decade later, this man is DJ Kilown, and he's on a mission to bring progressive and lively sets to crowds all over the world.
Back in 2000, while the rest of the world fret over impending technological doom, Kilown was gathering his first records. After a short stint in producing, Kilown focused on his mixing game and after a few summers of practice, was invading the decks of dance floors all over town.
Those early days were all about D&B, but over the years his sound has evolved to include house, electro and dubstep. But Kilown knows a set is about the crowd and not about the DJ, so each live performance is exciting and new as he customizes to the dancers in the crowd, playing whatever gets them pumped, sweaty and jumping.
Born in San Diego, Kilown has made a home for himself in Colorado. Here he adds his progressive and driving style to the already bustling and energetic dance music scene, famous for launching artists like Big Gigantic, Pretty Lights and Paper Diamond.
But his sound isn't grounded firmly in the Colorado soil. DJ Kilown is worldwide, having dropped beats at places like Harlem in Korea, Rock Barron in Sweden, and even opening for the legendary Bad Boy Bill at the Church in Denver. Kilown is currently working his away around the UK, spreading his name and making fans everywhere he goes.
Kilown is driven and inspired by a desire to take DJing farther than his peers. He appreciates a progression in music and expecting the unexpected. Within his own sets, he tries to master the art of blending, hiding his mixes and leaving the crowd wondering "What the hell just happened?"
With over a decade of mixing experience, DJ Kilown is ready to rock crowds in any corner of the globe. As partiers everywhere continue to ache for more bass, Kilown is poised to give them what they need, and a few surprises.
