Introduction
IKON, a young fledgling graff artist and hip hop enthusiast originally from San Jose, California; stumbled into the world of Hawaii's electronic dance music underground in the early 90's. It was his aerosol art hobby that gave birth to the name IKON which started as a tag name, remained a nickname, and later evolved into the moniker he is known as today. IKON; a DJ, promoter, freelance journalist, and radio mixshow host from Hawaii has become a rapidly rising figure in the domestic breaks & electro community by devoting his time to pushing and promoting a certain sound to its outer limits. As a promoter, his location, and knowledge of the industry will pave the way for breakbeat & electro culture to hit the road less traveled for years to come. As a DJ, his passion and experience has evolved into a unique style that can be easily described as an eclectic mix of Funky Electro Breakbeat with elements of Old Skool Miami Bass & Freestyle infused with today's ghetto jackin Nu Skool electro house basslines. Much still awaits to be seen and uncovered, but with the relationship that has been growing with Illeven:Eleven Recordings, Future Sound of Breaks [FSOB], Dirty Fabric, and other notable players in the industry; for IKON there are still many more boundaries to be crossed. As for his future, look for special collaborations and original productions.
