(NYC/Deep House/Tech House)(4UsByUs)
Ken Masters came into the scene in 1999 as a promoter at various night clubs in NY such as Roxy, Limelight, Sound Factory, Webster Hall, and Exit. After 8 years of doing promotions, he redirected his focus into music and learned how to dj. Within 2 years since first learning how to mix a beat, he has played all over the east coast from New York to Florida, including New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Massachusetts and Vermont.
His various music styles range from house, deep house, tech house, techno, minimal and funky swing house. Within all these genres of music he is able to open and close any party and can work any crowd to keep their booties bouncing and shoulders shaking. It does not matter to him if he’s only playing for one person or 10,000 as long as his music can reach that one person and they can feel it deep down in their soul. MUSIC=LIFE
