As put, “It’s not just the songs that create the vibe, but it’s how their mixed, along with giving the crowd a performance as well!” -Kray-Z-K
Throughout his upbringing, Kray-Z-K was surrounded with many musical influences giving credit mostly to his parents. “My mother listened to groups like Fleetwood Mac, Sting, and Rod Stewart and my father listened to Van Halen, Tom Petty, and Jefferson Airplane. I loved it, all of it, and still do to this day! I loved my dads taste more than anything. Something about the guitar riffs got me hooked, I just wanted to blend them together and create new mixes.” By the age of 14 years old, with a bedroom full of dj equipment and music, Kray-Z-K met the resident DJ at the local club by the name of DJ Craig E-C. From there Kray-Z-K quickly developed the skills required to perform live and gained the knowledge necessary to work as a professional DJ. After a year of dj’ing ritually every day in his bedroom and at the club with Craig-E-C, Kray-Z-K landed a guest spot at Hollywood’s famous Club Avalon, formerly The Palace. “From here I was instantly hooked. The rush I got from the crowd and how comfortable I was despite my nervousness…and this is considered a job? Im in!” Kray-Z-K continued pursuing his dream while soon relocating to San Diego in late 2001.
In 2003, Kray-Z-K was signed to Balliztic, performing throughout California with groups like King Spade, Afroman, and Kotton Mouth Kings to include shows at Hollywood’s Whisky A Go Go and various shows throughout Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. In 2006, Kray-Z-K landed residency positions at Club Michaels and Club Altitude in San Diego California. Kray-Z-K said, “This is when I knew I wanted to DJ for a living, dj’ing 4 nights a week was not enough.” Since then, DJ Kray-Z-K has held residencies and guest spots at many well known venues throughout the United States from “The Pool” in Atlantic City to “Rok Nightclub” at New York New York Las Vegas. With his persistent mindset and his outgoing personality he continues to rock venues and nightclubs across the US.

Looking back over the years, DJ Kray-Z-K states, “I can’t say how much dj’ing has taught me on a personal and professional level. I will always DJ. I plan to take it to another level in upcoming months when I start producing my own twist of events and eventually open a DJ school. This will definitely test my skills as I teach others the art and continue to book shows both nationally and globally. This is my love, my passion, my dream, and most of all, what I feel I was born to do.”
