As a perpetual student of the turntables, Packo has been a staple in Hawaii's underground hip hop and electronic dance scene since the turn of the new millennium. Amongst the pool of deejays in today's society, he's found his niche as being Hawaii's most distinguished "skratch artist," bringing to the table more than justpressing the "Play" button and making people dance, but instead carving out the sounds of how he hears the world around him. With much attention to detail with every move made, the 10+ year vet ensures quality in sound and vibration in everything he comes into contact with. Rooted to the islands of Hawaii, he's found the drive from his fellow peers and icons to endeavor in and carry the torch for being recognized as one of, if not, "Hawaii's Best Skratch DJ" Humbly, he speaks, shares, and teaches with great passion for the art form, and also by utilizing and regarding the turntable as an actual musical instrument.
He's gained much notoriety, insight, techniques, lessons, and musician's secrets by hanging with the some of the finest in the skratch world, trading cuts with the likes of DJ QBert, D-Styles, DJ Vajra, Shortkut, Mix Master Mike, Handroidz, Swift Rock, Vinroc, and the locals, DJ Colossus, Nocturnal Sound Krew, DJ Mad, and DJ Mana, amongst others. Adding to his experience as a show DJ, he's shared stages and played with some of the heavy hitters in the Hip Hop/EDM game, including Aesop Rock, Afrojack, Atmosphere, Baths, Blackstar, Figure, Goapele, DJ Krush, Murs, Nas, Pigeon John, Shingo2, Wu-Tang Clan, & Zion I, just to name a few.
Amongst the majority of genre-specific deejays, one of Packo's many duties is to remain firm on the frontline of the relatively new, yet ever-expanding Hawaii Dubstep scene. His most notable recordings are of the Aquadust series: an hour+ long journey of fusing together, the world of Turntablism and Dubstep, the fasting growing electronic genre in this era of music evolution. The first edition received such an overwhelming response, that a 2nd installment was in planning within weeks of the initial release in August 2009. Aquadust 2 released a year later in October of 2010, with the 3rd installment set to release in late Summer of 2012. Other projects include the "SubMantras" Dubstep series: an audible listening journey taking into account the most credible producers/remixers in the game, with vocals soaring over the deepest and lowest frequencies to date.
DJ Packo's current affiliations include:
-"SAMPLE" a live hip hop band, backed by drums, bass, keys and he, of course, plays the turntable: triggering samples and percussive soundwaves.
-"SubMana" a dubstep/edm collective alongside fellow deejaymates: Technique, Nightmarcher, & Mindgame.
