Renowned by top DJ’s and producers of the digital cumbia scene in Latin America and European bass-pundits alike, Geko Jones is one of the select few DJ’s pushing forward the Latin agenda in a world wide tropical bass scene. A founding member of both the New York Tropical and Que Bajo?! party franchises in New York, and a partner and co-owner of the Dutty Artz record label with producer Matt Shadetek and DJ /Rupture, his mixes span the tropical hemispheres and collage together hours of globally sonic dancefloor mayhem. His DJ sets incorporate heavy afro latin percussion mashed up against the hard synth lines and global breaks.
His Brooklyn-based studio, Casa de Los Jones, is focused on becoming a clearance house for samples in latin music thereby allowing for legal remixes and pushing forward the scene via proper channels. With his contacts at Discos Fuentes, Palenque Records and Dutty Artz he’s positioned himself as a mediator between the past and future sounds of dance music and remains ever-present on the club circuit.
The past six years have found him sharing a booth, stage or collaborating with a long roster of A-list globalistas like Buraka Som Systema, Bomba Estereo, Rita Indiana, Jahdan Blakkamoore, Vampire Weekend, and Mad Decent’s Toy Selectah to name a few. You can catch him boucing between Brooklyn to Bogota or tearing the roof off at festivals worldwide.
