Johannes “DJOKO” Kolter is one of the fastest rising talents from the ever innovative German music scene. He has been steadily on the rise with his fresh take on house music through labels such as PIV, Berg Audio and Rutilance.
He is currently one of the bestselling artists in his genre and is laying the groundwork for its future with his forward-thinking music.
DJOKO is starting 2020 with gigs planned throughout the UK, Europe and South America following his latest EP on PIV that made it to no. 1 on Beatport.
In 2016 he started the popular Hoove event brand with his good friend Thalo Santana to push forward aiming house music in his techno dominated hometown. A number of cutting edge artists in the scene have played at the Cologne and Berlin based event including Youandewan, Nick Beringer and Prunk & Chris Stussy.
DJOKO’s sound is influenced by funk and soul, garage and deep house and everything in between that is both underground and raw. His DJ-sets vary from breakbeat to house & electro maintaining the typical raw 90’s textures that keep the body moving.
