ABOUT

"I started collecting records and DJing in 1993, when I first made house and hip-hop cassette mixes to sell at Chicago flea markets. Since then I have played at numerous parties, concerts, live music shows, night clubs and for all kinds of celebrations. My taste in music is wide and pretty involving, and I am constantly listening to new music, older music and everything in between. R&B, rock, pop, hiphop, funk, disco, electro, indie, jazz, Latin, blues rarities, soul, beats and samba are just some genres I am comfortable creating within. I have found a lot to love in virtually every genre and time period, from across the entire world of music and culture."

Konstantin has spun his impressive 78 collection at FLATS grand opening for The Draper and The Bush Temple.
