Jago K., a true son of Berlin, and anything but a typical representative of the “Sounds of Berlin”.
On the other expectations of possible drawer compliant sound he was never even give a piece. Because of his long years in the climate of the black music scene in Berlin, with accompanying tours towards punk, rock and South American music, he is always ready for a very unique sound, and somehow always more groovin’ House than monotonous Techno. He comes from a family of actors and artists, which ever supported his burgeoning creative ambitions in all directions. As the age of 11, his soul keep on burning after the first contact with the parental music library and it became clear that this should be a love for life.
At the age of 13 he began taking piano lessons. In parallel, he visited in this young age already different clubs between the coordinates punk, hip hop, house and techno. The dance floor was a second home. After many years active in the writers’ scene in Berlin, the focus shifted interest towards electronic dancefloor music. Influenced by DJ activities of friends, he began in the late nineties with the DJ’ing. It did not take long and he stretched himself as a youngster at various DJ competitions in Ibiza and in Germany with other members of his profession.
He reaped regular seats on the podium and was, among others, 2003 voted by the Prince Magazine as one of the best young DJ’s in Berlin. He began to organize his own parties and travels in the following years across the Republic to entertain the various clubs with his definition of high quality, electronic music. He tinkers in the quiet back room of his own productions, which he incorporates as secret weapons in his sets, but never makes it accessible in the form of publications to the public. For the future this will change and the first releases will be all the way from the back room in the world.
As an original member of Family Unit, Jago K. serves as the labels keystone. He brings a consistency and reliability to the label that reflects his experience behind the decks. A true master of his craft, Jago can be counted on to warm things up, bang things out, or give that touch of euphoria to the end of a rave.
