DJ Cocheze (named after an Apache Native American Chief spelled “Cochise”) got the chance of a lifetime to rock one show with KRS-One on February 18th 2005 at the age of 18, where he was chosen to be his personal tour DJ for the next 4 years. He has performed hundreds of shows with KRS-One in over 20 countries including, Japan, Africa, Spain, France, England and the United States. Not only has Cocheze shared the stage with stellar artists such as Guru, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh, Tribe Called Quest, Rhazel, Method Man, & MC Lyte, but has also dominated the turntabilist battle scene. He completed a degree in Recording Engineering at FullSail Real World Education in Orlando FL, which fine-tuned his battle skills and helped him win multiple Hip Hop Elements Battles, as well as, many Southeast Regional Guitar Center Battles in the Florida area. Cocheze now resides in San Francisco, California, where the opportunity to collaborate with some of the world’s most talented artists/DJ’s and rock some of the biggest parties the Bay has to offer, has become his reality. His time in SF has been well spent broadening his musical aptness to include other genres of music such as House and Electro, and he continues to build his arsenal as a musician, not just a DJ. Cocheze sets himself apart from your ordinary DJ’s by delivering an open format style of mixing, including his extreme technical abilities as a conditioned turntablist. The Sky is the limit for this young DJ, after sharing the stage with some of the worlds biggest artists we can now see Cocheze rising to the top.
“One of the most entertaining Dee Jays I have ever seen.”
