Superstar DJ Keoki is an electronic music, among other genres, DJ. Born in El Salvador and raised in Hawaii, Keoki began advertising himself as “superstar” shortly after moving to New York City. Probably the most visible DJ on the mainstream U.S. dance scene, Keoki released a half-dozen mix LPs and, beginning with 1997’s Ego Trip, his own breakbeat-trance productions as well. Born in Panama but raised in Hawaii, Keoki hit the mainland in the mid-’80s and gained an airline job in New York. While moonlighting at the Danceteria nightclub, he decide to translate his love of music into a DJ career and soon became one of the city’s most flamboyant DJs.
