With a mission to preserve true deejay culture, DJ Makossa lives for the funk. Beginning as a college radio DJ in 2001 that specialized in funk, soul, reggae, hip-hop and various types of world music, Makossa is still searching for that perfect groove. Whether it is founding the legendary rare psychedelic night AFREAKA! in San Francisco or bringing the funkiest crew of DJs on the West Coast together to form the weekly Funky Rewind party, Makossa is dedicated to enforcing quality control over the ever-growing want-to-be DJs the digital music age has spawned.
In 2012, he moved from the West Coast back to his hometown of St. Louis and co-founded the Bump & Hustle STL. The monthly, all vinyl event was referred to as the best monthly party the city has ever seen. The Bump&Hustle STL hosted special guests such as Edan, Natasha Diggs, Ohmega Watts and Skeme Richards amongst many others. Additionally, he has played shows with Cut Chemist, Lee Fields, the Gaslamp Killer and a number other groundbreaking artists. Currently he resides in Chicago and St. Louis, holding residencies in both cities. Any time Makossa takes the stage, expect to hear classic, sure shot selections across all genres while leaving out the latest trending artists that lack any real substance or soul.
