DJ Jalen is a multi-genre composer and DJ, actively pushing footwork and underground music internationally with his group of dancers, TOG - Takeova Global.
A triple threat of DJ, dancer & producer out of Chicago (based in Detroit), Jalen Barnes is growing into a Midwest favorite. At 22-years old, and the youngest member of Teklife, Jalen brings the fire & always gets the crowd going wild. He has performed shows with the likes of DJ Deeon, Traxman, CupcakKe, Taye, Manny, Earl, J-Cush & Mel G to name a few, and has been featured on radio such as RBMA, BBC Radio 1 and Radar Radio. His LOST FILES release recently premiered via Mexico City's Juke MX, and an additional 3 releases are scheduled to drop by the summer such as TAKE OVA TIME on Peru's MATRACA label. With international live bookings & dance workshops already scheduled well into the fall, 2018 is shaping up to be a banner year for DJ Jalen - this is one artist you don't want to be sleeping on!
