Kewk Los Angeles In dance music there is a certain amount of perspective that comes from being a part of one of the OG crews in the movement. Kewk is one of the founding few dubbed by Insomniac Productions as part of that OG Crew. A small group of truly elite dance music virtuosos that cut their teeth in the foundational days of rave. Kewk was truly an architect of the American dance music movement. And his role as an event producer imparted on him a love for community, peak dance floor experiences, and of course House and Techno. The 90’s were a formative time in dance music. And his work helped create many of the foundational elements that are still held dear today. Most notably the adventurous spirit that lies within everyone searching for the perfect beat. Warehouse parties allowed him and his crew to adopt a maverick approach. Like his contemporaries he threw events with no judgement and unlocked a world where one could worship the speakers. Warehouse parties gave way to outdoor events and many of the now legendary LA crews like Moon Tribe and Insomniac began to take shape. After several years of helping create a foundation for rave culture, Kewk took a step back from the dancefloor in 1996 to start a family. However, the memory of those experiences remained with him. It wasn’t until 2015 that Kewk considered a return to form, this time as a DJ. Pasquale Rotella had enlisted James ‘JDub’ Warner to form an exclusive group of founding members of the rave movement dubbed “Insomniac OGs.” Since, he has penned a new chapter to his life-long raver story. Performing at some of the most regarded events in North America like EDCLV, Beyond Wonderland, and Nocturnal has allowed him to open up his network to an entirely new generation of dance music lovers. In the process he’s dedicated his time to creating the same peak dance floor experiences he did in the 90’s through his own brand of dirty deep tech. And with upcoming releases with Open Source Division and tastemaker Slightly Sizzled Records it’s become evident that this new chapter will be emblazoned with the same adventurous and loving spirit as the last.
