Born and raised in the Bronx, DJ and Producer Kush Jones’ gateway into the world of sound making all started with the sample. Growing up surrounded by R&B and soul played at home, he became interested in the way his parents records were flipped in modern music. He began learning computer based music production while in an after school program as a teen, and while most of his peers were taking the traditional hip-hop route, he desired for a more expansive palate. In the late 2000s, he attended Lite Feet battles, one of NYC’s homegrown dance cultures, which lead him to discover similar scenes around the US, such as Chicago footwork, Jersey club, and more. Still fascinated by the way all these genres reworked classic sounds to form new ones, Kush set off on a path to fuse his influences to form his own voice for the dance floor.
Eventually jumping behind the decks to play exclusive tracks from him and his friends, he gained the attention of likeminded DJs from all over, and found a home on the LAX-based Juke Bounce Work crew. Whether locals from the budding scene of his borough, or collaborators met abroad while touring, Kush cherishes feeding off the energy his friends and contemporaries. He’s spent the last few years touring all around the US and Europe and held radio residencies on Rinse FM, and stateside stations such as The Lot, and Halfmoon BK.
Churning out homemade creations regularly, Kush is most known for Strictly 4 MY CDJZ, his self-released series of Bandcamp exclusive EPs with 40 volumes planned to drop. On his newest project, he takes a more focused approach, and channels his love of house music into a 4-track 12” vinyl release on Washington DC-based label Future Times, out later this year. Whatever the tempo might be, Kush Jones provides a fresh take on the various areas he choses to work in, with a genuine respect for the craft and history of dance music, and a strong ear for sounds both current and yet to come.
