Ekin's Press Kit
Ekin is a mogul-in-the-making who moves to the beat of his own mixtape. Even with an already hectic schedule—he’s on-air weekday afternoons on Satori Radio; behind the mic on a recently launched podcast, three Guys 4 Mics alongside Hall Of Fame boxing champ Winky Wright and NFL linebacker Cameron Lynch; hosts his MyPlace online interview series; and produces Absolute Street Knowledge (ASK), his industry video documentary series. Ekin makes philanthropy a priority too. He is the creator of i Care About Me, a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering youth to make a positive impact in their communities and beyond.
Ekin is not just any other DJ; he is an all-around entertainment professional. He is not bound by the mic and uses his influence and infectious energy to dominate every endeavor he touches on- and off-air.
With nonstop days on-air, on-screen, behind the camera and on the club scene, it is no wonder DJ Ekin’s star power is skyrocketing. The acclaimed Tampa-based DJ is well-known as one of the most connected, hardworking, and reliable on-air talents in the industry.
Ekin has been a go-to DJ for celebrity giants like Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Jay-Z, and Sean ‘P-Diddy’ Combs. His club success and notoriety garners corporate attention as well making him a sought-after DJ for clients like Disney, Budweiser, the NCAA, the NHL, Def Jam, Adidas, Heineken Light, Puma, and Live Nation.
Born and raised in the Bronx, New York, Ekin honed his craft on a set of turntables gifted to him by his father. His first professional DJ gig took him across the pond to the UK where his penchant for mixing on-trend, international sounds was born.
