Breaka Dawn is a breaks and house DJ from CT who's known for spinning funky breaks and soulful deep, jackin' and disco house music. Dawn's been djing since 1999, playing a variety of venues from night clubs to bboy battles to art shows and restaurants. Her style is a blend of underground and throw back which she artfully blends to tell a story while bringing people together on the dance floor.
A dancer herself, she' got into DJing because she knew what made dancers have to dance. Her infectious positive energy shines through in her music and live sets as she breaks it down behind the booth too.
Prior to DJ'ing, she played trombone in a ska band named The Incognitos, and played at several venues around CT and New England. Breaka Dawn has DJ'd all over New England, NYC and beyond, leaving her mark on dance music.
