guest deejay:
JUN
A resident Deejay around Los Angeles, JUN has deejayed consistently on a weekly basis at such spots as the Standard Hotels and at Amoeba Records in Hollywood. The music he plays is a mixture of all sounds new and old played lovingly, mixed with diversity and knowledge from downtempo dubbygrooves to upbeat deep cosmic disco riddims with a touch of electronic tones having a worldly perspective influenced by funk, house and hip hop. He can play a spectrum of sound from dark to light with soul in mind as music flows thru. Having deejayed for the past decade JUN has the experience from opening up for well known live acts with Goldenvoice, and deejaying along side famous deejays with Bossa:Nova. Part of the Umoja SoundSystem Deejay crew who’s mission is unity through music.
