DJ EKO (NYC), is a sound ambassador with a penchant for cutting edge music movements that began with programming a decade-long radio program alongside contemporaries like Stretch&Bobbito, J-boogie and Gilles Peterson. Acknowledged as an ‘ahead-of-the-curve’ tastemaker, she was initiated into journalism for the connoisseurs’ nexus of urban & electronic music, URB Magazine for nearly a decade as well. She broke new music and garnered gold plaques on her walls for artists such as D’angelo & Mos Def. She continues exposing listeners to amazing new sounds, be it in person or over the airwaves at East Village Radio.
Her passion in seeking out the newest, most creative production, remixes and developing genres remains strong. You can see the way she loves the music she is playing and hear it in the way she weaves music from many backgrounds together effortlessly, with her own touch.
Eko’s current favorite modality is eclectic sets. She’s got a huge crush on the intersection of future soul and future bass and is also keeping an eye out for the intersection of indigenous music and electronic music as well.
Known for being extremely versatile and playing good, soulful music tastefully, Eko is a master of moods. You’re likely to find her in the most diverse settings from yoga classes to night clubs, fashion shows, art galleries, festivals, silent discos, launch parties and renegade soirees alongside regularly working with several high-profile clients.
