Hailing from the heart of Alberta, Crooka has been a staple in the Calgary music scene over the last 5 years, bringing his signature style of house to clubs across the country. A classically trained drummer since the age of 11, Crooka found himself drawn towards the art of Djing after visiting his first club at 18.
Starting as a Drum & Bass and Dubstep DJ he quickly fell in love with the sounds of house and techno. Heavily influenced by the music coming out of the UK, his dj sets rapidly gained recognition as something new and fresh in the Calgary scene.
After submitting one of his mixes to a local radio station, they recognized his unique sound and offered him a weekly radio show. Now in his 4th year as a host on CJSW 90.9 FM, one of Canada's premier community radio stations, Crooka is bringing his UK Bass infused house to fellow Calgarians every week.
Wanting to combine his love for UK bass music with the 4 on the floor rhythm of house, he began producing his own music and blending these two together. With his tracks getting support from DJ's across Canada and the US, it will be exciting to see what he has in store for us in 2015.
