J-KIND is a DJ/Producer residing in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. His diverse and eclectic style transcends many genres, and is currently focused on his burning passion for techno. Listening to a J-KIND mix is inevitably a deep journey through various moods, and listeners are guaranteed a thrilling exploration of various emotions set to relentless, stomping and oftentimes, funky beats. Whether or not it’s deep, introspective, jazzy, urgent or imperative, your neck is guaranteed to move to the beat once he works the dancefloor into a frenzy with the bottomless crate of jewels in his crate.
J-KIND’s style is a derivation of many influences coming from the 1990’s era: Daniel Bell, Terry Francis, Sven Vath, Richie Hawtin and Mark Farina being just a few of the many creative artists that helped shape his passion for electronic music. His career started with underground raves and parties all over the San Francisco Bay in 2001 and has taken him to Europe and beyond. He pioneered many underground parties in San Francisco, including a ground-breaking residency at Bad Habits (Monroe), Temple, Bubble Lounge and Tanil, as well as guest appearances with Uniting Souls based in Seattle. He is a resident DJ with the Airpusher Collective Burning Man group, and also held a residency at Wish Bar & Lounge before its closure in 2020. As he continues his quest for new sounds, you can be assured that whether or not he’s spinning vinyl or using CDJs, you will notice what he calls “the beauty and power of DJ’ng – the ability to mix two tracks so creatively and uniquely, that a new song is created from the merger.” His first EP, “Beautiful Life” was released in 2015 on Mioli Music and is available on Beatport, Spotify and iTunes.
As his sound continues to resonate through the San Francisco Bay and beyond, be assured any party with J-KIND on the bill will be an event not to miss.
