Between you and me, Eko’s got a huge crush on the intersection of future soul and future bass and also keeps an eye out for the intersection of indigenous music and electronic production as well. When she’s not fully focused on playing sexy Soultronica sounds, something she’s become quite well known for, Eko’s favorite modality is playing eclectic sets that often span all the way from Nu Disco to Azonto.
Known for being extremely versatile and playing good, soulful music tastefully, Eko is a master of moods. You’re likely to find her in diverse & unusual settings from fashion to silent discos, yoga classes to night clubs, art galleries, festivals, launch parties and renegade soirees alongside regularly working with several high-profile clients like Ace Hotel, Beyonce, Converse, Martha Stewart, Nike, Tokidoki and Top Shop.
DJ EKO (LA/NYC/worldwide), is a global sound ambassador with a penchant for cutting edge music that was born out of programming a decade-long radio show paralleling Gilles, J-Boogie, Oliver Wang and Garth Trinidad. Consistently acknowledged as an ‘ahead-of-the-curve’ tastemaker and initiated into journalism for the connoisseurs’ nexus of urban & electronic music, URB Magazine in the 2000’s, she’s now is a staff writer for Okayfuture [the electronic branch of the Soulquarian & Questlove’s Okayplayer]. Her first steps in those early radio & magazine years included earning her gold plaques on her walls for D’angelo & Mos Def.
She enjoys breaking new music and introducing bloggers to up-and-coming producers, continually exposing listeners to new sounds, be it in person, via writing or over the airwaves. Her passion in seeking out the newest, most creative production, remixes and developing genres thrives in this new expansive world of equal-access technology. Eko often hears feedback about how she obviously loves what she does and the music she plays, being told time and time again by audiences who are delightfully surprised at her cohesive way of weaving genres together in a unique way.
