Mr. Congo is a poet/artist turned DJ, his eclectic style of music fuses fashion and coolness. His sound is a mixture of old blues and jazz with a modern hip-hop twist.
Congo’s influences on deejaying are Prince, Thelonius Monk, Miles Davis, Outkast, and Ray Charles. All different musicians, but difference is what separates them from the rest.
Mr. Congo has worked privately for the last few years and is secretive and selective about the gigs he plays. He recently played as supporting DJ with Usher’s OMG tour in Melbourne 2011. He enjoys the low key guerilla style of doing gigs and enjoys when the audience is captivated by his performance and his cool energy behind the decks. He says,”This enhances the exclusivity of the music and performance.”
Mr. Congo is local to Melbourne and hopes to expand his repertoire in the fashion and art scene. With an ear for rhythm, and an eye for what’s hot in the streets Mr. Congo is one of the grooviest, smoothest, and stylish deejays around.
Stay tuned for the beat!
