Honing his skills since 2001, Joey Mojo stuck close to his first loves, drum and bass and turntablism, but it’s obvious that he’s heavily influenced by funk, rock and reggae. He prides himself on his eclectic musical choices and DJing styles, which show evidence of his growing up in Los Angeles and moving to the Bay Area. His signature DJing landed him a job with Cheech & Chong’s North American Tour, which was sponsored by Live Nation. That ‘little’ gig solidified his place behind the decks, making playing in front of thousands of people no big deal, as he did on a regular basis.
After almost 12 years of being active in the scene, Joey Mojo shows no signs of slowing down. His musical tastes, much like his style and skill have evolved and now incorporate elements of hip-hop, drumstep, dubstep, reggae and dancehall. He also attends San Francisco State University, where he’s studying music business and music production.
His current residencies include Oakland-based Primitive Science (UG DnB), Oakland-monthly Dystopia Fridays, Los Angeles-based Bass Space Music and North Bay Area-based Power in Music.
