He was a part of the elite Reflex SF crew for many years based out of SF and has been a part BADNB and preformed on the float at Lovefest for the last few years killin’ it every time!
Salokin got into dubstep about 3 years ago…dabbling here and there…until last November when he partnered up with the elite SF crew Compression known for their amazing DnB shows. He decided to collaborate on a monthly show every 3rd Friday at 103 Harriet (formerly 1015 Folsom) to deliver a bass-heavy show that’s positively blowin’ up on the scene! If you don’t know, you better get your ass in gear.
Salokin then created RUKKUZ MUZIC with his fiancé, and they have since become known from SF to NY for venture with COMPRESSION, With the diverse sound and top notch artists they have out every month, it’s something that cant be ignored. Salokin plays at many of these shows, and has definetly been a local favorite! He also aquired a residency at TRUST every month as well as his regular show. He is starting to produce his own tracks and soon will be known as a Jack of all Trades…
“At the end of the night Salokin was playing and I tip my hat to that guy. He was playing some of the freshest bangers I've heard in a while. What really built my respect for him was his mannerisms behind the decks. What I mean is, even though it was late in the night and the crowd had died down a little, he still played his ass off and didn't hold back any punches. Some DJ's will begin to shuffle their feet in boredom, or just act as if they can't wait to leave, but this guy was playing gems til the end.”
This latest mix, “Hearing Damage,” Salokin walks the gamut of today’s hottest sounds in dubstep blending in elements of some of the hardest hip-hop sounds and a metric shit-ton of vocal creativity throughout almost as if the dude created the mix and the MC to suit his needs perfectly.
