NEW ARTIST: Dj Co-op

With over ten years of experience under his belt, DJ Co-op likes to think of himself as Winnipeg’s most versatile DJ. From the early days of throwing underground hip-hop nights and dance parties, to earning a spot in the 2005 Canadian DMC battle finals. His fresh and intelligent mixes have blown up Canadian Campus radio charts, and gotten love online from sites including discobelle.net. Most recently Co-op has been found backing up Epitaph/Big Dada rapper Cadence Weapon. He’s also incredibly good at pinball.
